GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Sins of a Highland Devil by Sue Ellen Welfonder

Description

The first book in the Highland Warriors trilogy, in which three heroes make a pact to insure that a rival clan does not take over their Glen of Many Legends. At the same time, three women plot to marry these heroes to insure peace.

In SINS OF A HIGHLAND DEVIL, James Cameron is concerned when the King's decree states all three neighboring clans must have a battle to the death in order to lay official claim to the scared Glen of Many Legends. James attempts to make a pact with the heads of the other clans to fight this decree. But he ends up fighting his own fierce desire when coming head-to-head with Lady Catriona of the opposing MacDonald clan, who has her own plan for peace.

About the Author

Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a dedicated medievalist of Scottish descent who spent fifteen years living abroad, and still makes annual research trips to Great Britain. She is an active member of the Romance Writers of America and her own clan, the MacFie Society of North America. Under the pseudonym Allie Mackay, she has also written contemporary Scottish-set paranormals for Signet. Sue-Ellen Welfonder is married and lives with her husband, Manfred, and their Jack Russell Terrier, Em, in Florida.

 MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

The story of Romeo and Juliet will probably be told until the end of time. This truly is Shakespearean tale that takes place in Scotland.  When three heroines plot to make peace through marriage (yes, the women have to do everything) it runs right into the men who are at war.  This book centers on James and Catriona, both of opposing clans who realize that their union makes sense on paper, but also physically.  James, who is known as the "devil" has entranced Catriona since their youth.  Yes, there are lots of steamy parts, but the writing makes it anything but cliched.  This one is definitely a good pick for those who like Highland adventures.

Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

  34. What I found interesting is that she likes Haggis. When I was in Scotland I wanted to try it, but the owner of the Pub said that he would rather pay me than have me throw up after eating it. ;) So with that warning I decided against trying it!
