Alex MacDonald is known for his skill as a warrior, his prowess with women, and his vow to never take a wife. But now his chieftain has asked him to make the ultimate sacrifice: wed Glynis MacNeil, a lass famed throughout the Highlands for her exquisite beauty-and defiant ways.
Familiar with heartbreak, Glynis refuses to fall for another handsome scoundrel. Yet when Alex's past sins force an unlikely union, Glynis gives in to temptation and becomes his wife. Will their newfound passion be strong enough to fight the enemy that threatens their home, their clan, and their very lives?
The Sinner is Book Two in The Return of the Highlanders series. I had not read the first one and found it wasn’t necessary to have done so to enjoy this one. The historical detail was well done and accurate but didn’t bang the reader over the head with too many details to drag the story down. I liked the light touch of those factors.
The hero in this story is Alex MacDonald, a Highland warrior. He has decided never to marry. He agrees to escort the heroine, Glynis MacNeil, across Scotland. She has been married before and had a terrible marriage. She has vowed never to marry again. They find themselves attracted to each other and even though neither wants to think they’re in love, they make love and each finds the other immensely attractive. They seem to fight this for a long time and that part of the story dragged down the pacing a bit. They eventually agree to marry but the mistrust continues even after the engagement.
The story was good and I was intrigued by the plot. The scenes between the hero and heroine were lively and the sexual encounters were amazing. The author did an excellent job on those in particular. I appreciate a good sex scene and this book delivers.
I recommend this one. A great, quick, fun read.
