Melissa's Review:

Seduction of a Highland Lass is book two in the McCabe Trilogy. I wound up reading this one directly after book one because I'm loving these so much! I need to buy book three quickly to see how the trilogy wraps up. This book focuses on Alaric McCabe (Ewan's brother) and his love interest. We learned in book one that Alaric is set up for an arranged married to Rionna McDonald to strengthen alliances and he'll run that keep one day. With the start of this book, you find out it's not going to be cut and dry for them, though.

The book starts with Alaric and our leading lady from book one, Mairin talking about how he's going to the McDonald keep. He's going to be with his betrothed, Rionna McDonald before they get married. Things don't go quite as planned when he and his men are camping out for the night and they're attacked.  With his men dead and Alaric gravely wounded, he manages to get on his horse and wakes up in the care of Keeley McDonald. Keeley was cast out of the McDonald keep, though lives a bit away from it and cares for their people's wounded. Alaric's brothers show up and take both him and Keeley to the McCabe keep so Alaric can recover. It's a perfect situation since their keep needs a healer and Keeley was not happy being a McDonald outcast.

As Keeley is helping Alaric recover, you see their attraction blossoming. They both know he and Rionna McDonald are going to get married, but they cannot hold back. Deciding it's best to know and remember their passion they decide to get together for a night. I loved their feelings for one another but worried about what would happen when Rionna entered the picture. We find out more about why Keeley was cast out of the keep at a young age and I wound up adoring her character as the novel progressed. I feel like this book is even better than book one, and cannot wait to see where the next book takes me. If you enjoy Historical Romance and haven't read this series, I suggest you grab it!
