Munro MacLawry has always lived up to his nickname "Bear." Strong and brawny, he's known in his clan to be fiercely protective. Sadly for him, each of his siblings becomes "less highlander" as they get married, and Bear is left rowdy and alone with no one to protect. That is, until a routine hunt leads to the most alluring of creatures…
Catriona MacColl doesn't care to amuse the brash, strong, and sexy highlander she stumbles upon in the woods. She's too busy hiding with her sister from marriage into English society. Already well-equipped with a bull's-eye shot, she doesn't need a protector, no matter how badly her body burns for him. But as Cat's boyish nature gives way to her more feminine desires, she'll have to stop fighting the tide and listen to her heart…
Catriona MacColl is trying to save her 19 year old sister from marrying a man 42 years her senior. She left her home on the Isle of Islay and fled to London to save her. Yes, Cat has her own secrets but those she’s keeping close to the vest. They flee and find themselves on MacLawry land and hide out in a collapsed house.
Munro MacLawry is out hunting a deer when he sees someone else shoot it before he can! He’s upset but intrigued when he discovers that the shooter is a woman. He follows her for a time and is shocked when she ends up at some ruins on his brother’s land. Cat tries to get him to leave and never come back but he’s too interested in the mystery redheaded woman.
Munro finds himself out at Haldane Abbey (the ruins) every day annoying the heck out of Catriona. He soon discovers Elizabeth the sister as well and decided that he’s going to help them. He starts building doors and fixing the roof for them but he knows it’s because he wants Cat in his bed. The problem with that is that Munro knows that it goes deeper than just getting her in his bed.
Munro doesn’t want anyone to find out about the ladies hiding out and has given his word to them that he won’t tell anyone but soon his busybody family does find out about Elizabeth and she’s soon living with them in the manor house – with all of his family assuming that this is the woman that Munro has chosen to marry – when it is, in fact, her sister that he loves.
I just adore Suzanne Enoch books. I’m not sure what it is about them but they all speak to me in a way that I pick them up and don’t put them down until I’m finished. I want the books to go on and on when I’m reading them even though I want to know what happens at the end. She writes wonderful historical romance and I can’t get enough.
Munro seemed like a nice guy in previous books in the series but I wasn’t sure how I would enjoy his own book. I shouldn’t have been worried. He managed to find a woman who was his kind of woman – soft and nice but tough as well with a backbone to match. He needed that kind of woman and I was so happy when he found her.
Cat was such a nurturer even though she didn’t see herself that way. She had gotten a raw deal from her father when he chose to raise her as a boy and never let her wear a dress. Though it hurt her once she was grown and see the damage it did she also saw, after meeting Munro, that she was formed just the way he wanted her to be and he wouldn’t have changed a thing.
The book was sweet and sad but also joyful. The family tensions run high in this one and had me on the edge of my seat. If you enjoy Enoch’s books this is one that shouldn’t be missed.
Rating: 4 out of 5.
