Taming the Scotsman

Taming the Scotsman by Kinley MacGregor (2003)

Description: Nora is a woman with a mission. Rather than be forced to endure a loveless marriage, she has fled her home, bound for England. There's one small problem, though; she needs a guide, and the best choice is Ewan MacAllister, the only man both her father and her fiance fear. Beneath Ewan's rough and tumble exterior, however, she finds the heart of a loyal friend, and suddenly, more than to be free, she yearns to tame the proud Highlander who protects his wounded heart.

Tormented by his past, Ewan wants only to be left alone. Until the fiery lass forces herself into his remote home and refuses to leave unless he escorts her far away from Scotland, Ewan thinks her mad, especially given her claims to be none other than niece to the Queen of England, but he can't let her travel about the countryside unescorted. In spite of her unorthodox ways and stubborn nature, she is rather fetching for a bold lass. And to his deepest chagrin, he fins himself wishing for the one thing he never thought to have. A brave Highland lady to call his own...

Review: This book came into my view as I was checking it in at the library. Now that I've read it, I think it might have been better to leave this one behind. The story and characters were fairly cheesy. Not only that, but the whole feel of the novel was far too modern. It was obvious the author was trying to write a historical novel without referencing much history. I didn't realize it at the time but this is part of a series. So unless you are a die hard Sherilyn Kenyon fan (who is Kinsley MacGregor by the way), I would pass this up.
