My Wild Highlander was a great read.
Lachlan, the main character, is Alasdair's brother from the first book in the series. Lachlan is being rewarded by the English King for his help in stopping a plot earlier on. He is betrothed to Lady Angelique, who hates men. She has had a bad past with men and so does not trust them at all. She wants someone that she can control but that is not who she gets in Lachlan. Angelique is very smart and she is very determined. Lachlan likes Angelique and wants to actually have a marriage with her but is not sure how to go about winning her over. He knows that she does not like him and men but is not sure what has happened to make her this way or how to get around it.
Lachlan has a lot of ground to cover. He now has to deal with the men that he is now Lord over and his wife. It is great to watch him figure out how to do this. He is definitely a romantic and wants to win his wife's trust and love. Angelique is trying to protect herself and so denies what she feels and tries to not feel anything for him. Lachlan and Angelique have chemistry from the very beginning and Lachlan teaches Angelique that sex is fine and good. The sex is explicit but is not overly so. I really enjoyed all of the emotion that is in the book and how it develops. There is plenty of action in this story. It definitely keeps you guessing what's going to happen next and it helps the characters admit their emotions sometimes. I loved the mix of romance and action.
This is the second story in this series. You do not have to read the first one to fully enjoy My Wild Highlander, but it does increase the enjoyment.
Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past. She wants nothing to do with the sensual Scottish warrior that the king has ordered her to marry because the rogue could never be a faithful husband, but she has little choice in the matter. Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she's in dire need of his protection.
Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist him--Angelique. Can he break through her icy façade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past not only cost them their future together, but their very lives?
This book follows My Fierce Highlander in the series.
