Highlander Ever After (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs #8) by Paula Quinn
Synopsis: From New York Times bestselling author Paula Quinn comes a sweeping Scottish historical romance between a dashing MacGregor highlander and his English bride.
They tried to resist a marriage of convenience…
As the clan chief’s son, Adam MacGregor is duty-bound to marry a royal heir. Yet when he meets his bride—a beautiful but haughty young lass who thinks he is nothing more than a common savage—he realizes she’s more than he bargained for. But the more Adam gets to know his new wife, the more intent he is on proving her wrong about him.
But can they resist each other?
Sina de Arenberg wants nothing to do with the unsavory MacGregors, especially the fierce Highlander she now calls husband. But the more time she spends with the man she married, the more she sees his honor and courage. Just when she thinks there might be a future for her and Adam, Sina is called back to court. England isn’t the place she remembers, though, and soon she’ll be forced to choose between the life she once knew, and the Highlander who has captured her heart.
Review: Great characters and entertaining plot made for yet another great MacGregor story in a long line of great stories following several generations from the same family. This one follows the heir to the chieftain, Adam, and a woman sworn to marry him by the machinations of the Queen and future king of England. They definitely had a rocky start to their marriage but Adam is persistent and doesn’t give up on trying to make Sina feel welcomed on Skye, until they receive a letter from the new king demanding her return. At first he doesn’t seem inclined to fight for a woman that from the get-go told him she loved another, but distance does help the heart grow fonder and weeks after her return to London he comes to win her back. I enjoyed their story and I am glad that it does work out among all parties involved in the end. Sweet. Passionate. Exciting. And enjoyable all around.
