 Synopsis:

LADY IN DISGUISE
Lady Marsi Cargill refuses to marry a man who wants her land rather than her love. To escape her arranged betrothal, she disguises her noble lineage and accompanies her young cousin--the future King of Scots--on a secret journey across the Highlands. Their guide is a mysterious knight known only as Hawk. Heat flares between the beautiful maid and the brooding warrior, but when Marsi's true identity is revealed, Hawk's desire gives way to fury...

KNIGHT AT THE READY
Summoned by the King to guard his son, Sir Ivor "Hawk" Mackintosh now has two royals to protect. This daring, willful woman has invaded Hawk's every thought, and laid siege to his heart. Soon the solitary soldier is yearning for a life with Marsi at his side and in his bed. But as their passion grows, so too does the danger surrounding them. Powerful enemies watch their every move, and to survive, Hawk and Marsi must fight for Scotland's future-as well as their own new-found love.


Review: Amanda Scott's novel Highland Hero is a delicious tale filled with a wonderfully written heroine named Marsi and a mouth watering hero named Hawk. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and I found myself transfixed on the wonderful story line. My only complaint would be some of the moments through out the book seemed a little cliché but for the most part I really enjoyed the book. The beginning of the book is fantastic and really sets the mood up for the rest of the story. Amanda Scott stays true to the year 15th century with her wonderful descriptions and details. The cast of characters are marvelous and add a wonderful color to the overall story. I would highly recommend this book to any lover of scottish romances or historical romances in general.

Synopsis:
IRRESISTIBLE DESIRE
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?

Review: Margaret Mallory's The Sinner is the second book in the series, The Return of The Highlanders. Although it is part of this wonderful series, it does a great job as a stand alone book as well. I really enjoyed the love story between Alex MacDonald and Glynis McNeil. I found their story sensual, spell binding and overall a fascinating read. Mallory is a wonderful writer and she really brings to life her characters. Alex is a strong, sexy and skillful warrior who has way with women. Glynis is a sensual, smart and refreshing heroine. The combination of the two are what really got me hooked to the story. Mallory does a wonderful job including details to the story that are for the most part accurate to the time, helping the story become tangible and real. My only complaint with this book would be Glynis MacNeil's past. It seems strange for the time period that Glynis would be re-marrying again.This detail did throw me off a bit, but it was easy to overlook it compared to the overall story. I look forward to reading the next book in the series from Margaret Mallory called The Warrior which is set to release in May 2012. It's a shame we have to wait so long!
