CLAIMING WHAT’S FORBIDDEN
Fearsome warrior Aidan MacLerie may be brave and unquestionably loyal to his family and clan, but his heart remains restless. Until he meets stunning Catriona MacKenzie. She’s a married woman, so he can never truly possess her, yet he seeks her surrender—one kiss at a time….
When the husband from her loveless marriage falls on the battlefield, Cat is left destitute, with her reputation in tatters. Aidan is the only man with the power to protect her now. All Cat has to do is yield to this powerful highlander.
RATING: 4.5 stars
It’s been many years since I’ve read a Harlequin. What I love about them is they are like a delightful confection, easily consumed in a sitting or two. With each read, there is an expectation built in of what it must deliver to the reader.
The focal point of the story is the love story between Aidan and Catriona. He’s a randy younger man who is driven by his need for conquest, and she’s a loyal married woman in a loveless but safe marriage. Never has he wanted a woman like he wants her, and never has she had a man awaken the desire he has in her. At their core, they both discover their own moral ground and live by it… even when it means they might need to give each other up.
Set in Highlands, the historical backdrop doesn’t romanticize the mores or the role of woman in that time. The secondary characters are memorable and add texture to the story which follows these two on their rocky journey to true love.
Enjoyable with the right level of tension and heat.
