Behind the Plaid

Highland Bound

When Emma finds a way to escape her abusive husband, she never imagined that it would lead her straight into the arms of a handsome 16th-century Scottish Laird. Logan, Laid of Gealach, harbors a secret that could destroy Scotland, yet when Emma stumbles into his life, they both begin to teach each other about trust and loyalty.

Wickedly sinful, arousingly erotic, and delightfully delicious Logan is the stuff that naughty Highlander dreams are made of. I have to say I would not mind being tied to his bed. He was a strong, well-written character and the secrets that he holds were completely engrossing. Emma could be seen as a weak, or perhaps a lacking character, but seeing as this is erotic romance, it works out nicely. She’s not overly submissive, but you know that she will never dominate the bedroom.

The plot centered on the erotic storyline, as it should be when writing a book such as this. Although it also had several aspect that will please fans of Highland romances.

Thrust into a world filled with treachery, danger and intensity she must summon the courage to find her way.

Logan is tormented by a dark past and harbors a secret that could tear his country apart. He’s consumed with the need for control which wars with his longing for harmony. Unable to resist Emma’s beauty and spirit and the calm that she invokes, Logan confesses he desires her—but only on his terms. He promises erotic encounters that will change them both forever, and quench their overwhelming desire.

Despite her own reservations, Emma longs to get close to the mysterious laird, even while she is desperate to return to her own era. She agrees to Logan’s proposal to satisfy her curiosity, but in the end embarks on a daring, passionate affair that rocks her to the very core. Secrets are uncovered, souls bared, spirits transformed. Neither of them can hide behind the plaid.
