Paula Quinn and her infamous MacGregor clan are still going stronger than ever in The Wicked Ways of Alexander Kidd, the second book in her Highland Heirs Series. If there ever was a book that deserved more than five stars then this one is it. I was absolutely captivated from start to finish.
Caitrina Grant craves adventure beyond her highland home of Camlochlin. Like her mother before her she takes destiny in her own hands. She stows away on board a pirate ship and gets caught up in a hunt for Captain Kidd's hidden treasure. She finds adventure and romance and a lasting love.
I simply cannot praise this one enough. It had everything and then some. Brilliantly clever writing with an exciting plot that flowed easily and flew by way too fast. There was adventure and danger on the high seas. And it featured characters that were all infused with a vibrancy that brought them to life in my imagination. Caitrina (Cat as Alex called her) was a spirited heroine who reminded me so much of her mother, Mairi and her aunt Claire. Then there was Alex, our hot pirate hero, who had so much trouble learning to trust anyone. Of course, the secondary characters weren't too shabby either. I really loved Kyle who was just as intense as his father Colin. He promises to be one of the more charismatic MacGregor heroes, but I suspect that Quinn may save him for last. In truth each one of the MacGregor heirs seems to have an interesting story to tell and I can't wait to read each one. For now I am in love with Cat and her pirate while I anxiously await Abigail, the lass who would be Laird, in the next book.
Paula Quinn has done it again! She has penned one of her best with this book that made me remember just why I got hooked on this series. It's another exciting and romantic book that I'm sure everyone will love.
AN INNOCENT STOWAWAY
As the sheltered niece of a Highland chief, Caitrina Grant longs for adventure beyond the lush hills of Scotland. So when a pirate ship glides into the loch, tempting her with promises of exotic lands and hidden treasures, Trina sneaks aboard. But she is unprepared for the consequences-and the seductive captain who demands the ultimate price for her deception . . .
A SINFUL PIRATE
For Alexander Kidd, the sea is no place for a lady. Pursued by deadly enemies from every direction, Alex won't rest until he claims the bounty of riches left to him by his father, the notorious Captain Kidd. A stowaway will not be tolerated-no matter how beautiful. But soon fighting his desire for Trina becomes his toughest battle yet, and he will have to make an agonizing choice: sacrifice his quest-or lose the woman who has stolen his heart.
