New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell returns to the Highlands of Scotland for a sensual new series about two twin brothers both tempted and tormented by their passions--and driven by the love that will shape their destinies. . . 
Sir Artan Murray was right when he decided that the dying old man who bid him collect his niece didn't know her at all. The furious woman facing him is neither "sweet" nor "biddable." She demands the brawny Highlander return her to the wedding party from which he took her. But Artan has no intention of allowing so spirited and bewitching a creature to endure a loveless marriage to a ruthless lord for her clan's sake. He aims to woo the lass and to show her that true love also yields unforgettable pleasure. . . 
Cecily Donaldson knows a bond forged by danger and desperation cannot endure. But Artan's touch leaves her breathless, and she knows this to be her one chance to experience true passion before an arranged marriage seals her fate. Yet once begun, passion cannot be denied. . .nor can a love with the promise to change everything. . .

Review: I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Howell's novel Highland Barbarian. 

Who wouldn't love a lead hero like Sir Artan Murray? He was a sweet, protective alpha male with an unwavering sense of honor. I've probably read hundreds of highlander stories, but Ms. Howell definitely sets herself apart with relateable and fascinating characters and a well-developed romance. As a heroine, Cecily is definitely different from the average "damsel in distress". Despite her reserved attitude among her uncle and aunt, she's fierce and yet sensible. You won't find a drama queen here. While she could have put Artan's life in danger by resisting her kidnapping, she didn't. She chose to believe him (maybe not fully) until she could gather more evidence. 

While Ms. Howell includes a fair share of drama throughout this story, it isn't over the top like so many others I've read. It's balanced and well drawn out. The story has a steady flow with interesting and exciting incidents to keep you glued until the very end.

I'm definitely adding the rest of this series on my list!

5/5 STARS!

About Sweet Victory:

Sophie Caldwell might not like asking for help, but help is what she needs if she’s going to save her family business from her uncle. Her grandma left one rule for Sophie if she wants to gain sole ownership before she’s thirty—get married. Yeah, fat chance of that happening since she hasn’t had a boyfriend in years, and now she can’t get her uncle off her ass. British-born MMA fighter Xander James has never lost a fight, and he’s not about to start now. He’s on the brink of a comeback that could make him a UFC champion, but his landlord wants to take away his last chance by shutting down his gym. Hell, no. Fortunately, his landlord’s niece has a problem of her own. Time for a proposal she can’t refuse.
