a stranger without work or friend Barras seems determined to charm her even tempt forbidden desires, a daring game that leaves Jemma desperate for But with passion, love, and a new life within her grasp, Jemma is in danger than even she knows I enjoyed this primarily because of the heroine Jemma She was feisty, opinionated, smart and loving She was a caregiver to her father I could relate who was grieving and reacting to that grief by riding with no protection and not making the best decisions With her brother s return and marriage, it is now time for Jemma to grow up, reclaim her life and

With her brother s return and marriage, it is now time for Jemma to grow up, reclaim her life and marry She knows that she must do but is reluctant Gordon has asked to court her after watching her ride across the borderland between his castle and hers for some time.Gordon has put aside laird duties to watch this lass He had his work cut out for him in courting wooing Jemma He rescues her after she makes another bad decision He takes her to his castle but does not take her back home to her brother As he sees it it may be his only chance to woo Jemma Of course, being a Mary Wine book, the wooing is sexual The OW Leman is trouble and set aside by Gordon after Jemma is brought to the castle The fight between her and Jemma is too funny and Jemma holds her own The leman creates trouble by amping up the prejudice of the staff against the English Jemma is English The leman is disrespectful and the staff sees this and is also Except for the housekeeper who was Jemma ally and mentor.Jemma slowly learns to trust Gordon and see the possibility of a life with him They marry but trouble comes to Jemma Her life was in danger The last 2 chapters are a surprisewon t reveal I liked this book far better than the others I read Thought that it was better written and there was the right balance between sex and story.Do have one complaint Gordon is described with dark hair and the man on the cover has dark blonde hair A pet peeve which makes me think that the publisher s art department did not read this book Giveaway on demonlover s link at the bottomAfter the first few pages I wasn t sure I d like the heroine Jemma is a shrew She s selfish, and impetuous But what I liked was that her impetuousness got her into trouble and she grew from it So often the heroine is described as impetuous but is in reality selfish and just does as she pleases Here, Jemma has spent the last few years caring for her ill father After his death she took to riding every day any time she pleases In

caring for her ill father After his death she took to riding every day any time she pleases In the opening scene, her brother calls her on ityou spend your days doing nothing save pleasing your whimsHe tells her she s shirking her duties, she is in her early twenties waay past marriageable age back then 14th c And he s done allowing her those freedoms Laird Barras has asked to court her and all her brother wants is for her to give Barras a chance Jemma takes it poorly and runs off As she runs off, she sees the estate and people through her newly opened eyes, and instead of riding, she helps Loved it LOVED it But, she went riding at night Not her brightest idea Some English knights found her and tried to rape her They came pretty close to succeeding but out of the blue some braw Scottish lads saved her Le swoon.Gordon s men found Jemma s mare running on Barras lands, so they knew she was in trouble Gordon had taken to watching Jemma ride every morning and had gained permission to court her After rescuing her, he can t let her leave She keeps finding excuses to leave whenever he s visiting her brother, so this is his new plan of action keep her so she gets a chance to know him Pretty intelligent plan, I think his reasoning is that his first wife had been unbalanced from her parents instilling in her that relations with her husband was a sin But as a wife she had to lay with him anyways She went mad, and became a nun The Church dissolved their marriage.Unfortunately, once Jemma is saved, she is pretty much behaving like an ungrateful brat At one point she is frustrated with him telling her what to do She is spoiled enough that she has always said what she wants, and sees no need why she shouldn t continue on that wayMaking an offer for me does not grant you the right to dictate to me, sir No lass, pulling ye off the ground before ye were raped does His voice cut through the air like a hot knife There was nothing friendly in his expression, only harsh judgment I asked yer brother for the right to court ye only, I never offered for ye and I m thinking that a wise thing at the moment I do nae need a wife that has nae got the sense of a child I was so glad he said that to her, she soo needed to hear it And you know what She grew up I liked her a lot The only thing I didn t like, in fact I hated, HATED the plot twist at the end It came out of left field and added nothing to the story Making the plot twist the attempted killer was pretty far fetched There had been no allusion, no foreshadowing, nothing to hint at it, so it felt wrong and awkward The person of interest we all think it is, should have been it It made sense, and it worked well It s hard to have a villain the whole book, and then only be told this random person is the villain Sometimes the simplest direction works best Luckily, that was only the last couple of pages, so it didn t ruin the book, but it did pull me out of the story.Mary Wine has a beautiful sense of the era and the location She has a way of giving you a fantastic visual of a castle and its working day to day life You can t NOT enjoy her writing style Thank you to Kensington for the Review

to fix the problem It shows she is a grown woman and not a little girl playing the I want you but I need to grow up first game.Despite really liking the story, I gotta admit that the sex in the story really threw me at first After the hero rescues the heroine, sex is thrown into the mix No, they don t jump into the sack, but on their way to the hero s castle the heroine begins to notice their intimate position She drew in his scent and shivered It was dark and musky, touching off a strange reaction deep inside her belly, a quivering that became a throbbing at the top of her sex Each motion of the horse sent her clitoris sliding against the leather of the saddle, and the scent of his skin intensified the sensation somehow See, it s not that the sex is bad It s that the sex is unexpected I m sure it s done to introduce the instant attraction between the hero and the heroine, but it didn t excite me for the characters It raised my eyebrows Later the sex scenes just about burn the pages My Fair Highlander is a comfort, romance novel There are no mysterious twists or huge surprises, but that s okay Why Well, because the story is one that I ll pick up time after time because it takes me to Scotland You know where the alphas are super alphas who love deeper than any other man alive I know what I m getting when I pick up My Fair Highlander a romance with a clear, happily ever after ending Not a series Not an attempt to impress me with the author s wonderful ability to get me going in one direction only to show me her cleverness by ending up in some strange location And most definitely not an attempt to add a twist the historical romance into a young adult or paranormal book.In the end, My Fair Highlander is a historical romance for grown women who like their men hot, hard and willing to give it all up for their women.Scooper Speaks Once again I found a book that I truly enjoyed Mary Wine has been hit or miss with me and I can say this was a hit The story was
