Review: Tamed by the Highlander by Madison Faye

tamed by the highlanderTitle: Tamed by the Highlander

Author: Madison Faye

Year of publication: Out today! I was kindly given a copy to read and review

The heroine: Una MacKay

The hero: Lord Hamish Ballentyne

The blurb: If I had it my way, I’d never get married. But then, it’s not up to me at all.
Because the gruff, muscled, gorgeous and powerful Highlander Lord Hamish Ballentyne has decided to claim me as his bride.

I’m determined to resist him. He may be beautiful, and dangerously brooding, and carrying around the shadows of the wars he’s fought in. But I will not be some lord’s property, and I refuse to be “his”.

Except one look into those dark, piercing eyes? One forbidden, pulse-quickening, toe-curling touch from his rough, strong hands? I can refuse to belong to him all I want, but the thing is…I might already be his.

He speaks to me like no man ever has. He touches me in ways I’ve only dreamed feverishly of. And he promises to take what can only be taken once. And God help me, I’m ready to give it to him.

Standalone or series: Book one of the Kilts & Kisses series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: This had everything you expect from a Madison Faye novella – possessive alpha heroes, feisty heroines, and lots of graphic, hot scenes. But this was a little different than your usual Madison novella, because it had a historical twist on it.

Una MacKay is being married off to Scottish Lord Hamish Ballentyne, and she’s not happy about it. She doesn’t know a single thing about this man, but her parents have made the match and she cannot refuse it. But that all changes when she lays eyes on her husband-to-be; he’s gorgeous in every way and she gets lost in his dark, fiery gaze. She doesn’t refuse him when he suggests they get to know each other intimately right before the wedding, and she’s perfectly happy to stay in his bed.

Until the castle is invaded, and Hamish finds himself needing to defend not on his castle and the people in it, but the woman he’s already lost his heart to. Can he keep her safe from the marauding Vikings, or will he lose her before he’s ever really had a chance to keep her? Another great novella to get lost in when you want something naughty to read but don’t have time to spare with a longer novel.
