Rogue of the Highlands was an excellent read. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Jillian and Ian. They are quite different from each other but exactly what the other needs. I loved the way that they interacted. Ian made me laugh, especially the way he kept teasing Jillian. The other characters are also written really well. The story grabbed my attention from the beginning and held it to the end. I was rooting for Jillian from the very beginning. There is plenty of action in this story to grab and hold your attention. There are twists and turns in the story that you don't see coming at the beginning and that keep you guessing how things are going to work out till the end. There are a lot of surprises in this story. This is the first in the series and I can't wait for the next book.
Jillian is now penniless because her husband left her nothing. She never wants to marry again and so takes the deal that the Prince offers her: she can teach a highland lord about society and refine him and get a nice sum of money. She accepts. Ian is not happy about this term but is willing to do it. Jillian and Ian are at odds though. They are both determined to complete their mission. They do not agree on quite a few things because of this and yet they are drawn to each other and forced to be together.
She must tame a Highland barbarian…before he steals her heart.
With the death of her elderly husband, the Marquess Newburn, Jillian Alton is relieved that she will never have to endure another forced marriage. Until his long-lost son reappears to claim his title and holdings.
Left penniless, Jillian reluctantly accepts a tidy sum from the Prince of Wales to “refine” a Scottish Highlander who has inherited an English title—a man who shakes her resolve to never again let a man close enough to snare her in unwanted wedlock.
Ian MacLeod never planned to set foot in England, but the breakup of the clan system has left him in need of claiming the profits of his inherited English lands to support his people. When he meets the very proper Lady Newburn, he is intrigued…and determined to melt her icy heart.
It shouldn’t be much of a challenge. After all, he’s never met a lass who didn’t quite willingly succumb to him. But he quickly learns that the beautiful, auburn-haired Jillian is no mooning maiden.
And there’s something about her stepson that raises the hair on the back of his neck—a clear signal of danger that has never proved him wrong…
Warning: This book contains a sexy Highlander who will make the most proper of ladies have very improper thoughts.
