E–pub Free (Highland Spitfire Highland Weddings #1) AUTHOR Mary Wine
Highland Spitfire is book one in the Highland Weddings series by Mary WineI don t usually go for Historical Romances My main issue is the way women are used or treated back then They where used to secure alliance peace tc It s hard for me to believe in the romance As for Highland Spitfire well I picked this up because the cover is ye catching and the blurb made it sound intrigue so I thought lets give it a goThis one is nemies to lovers The hero and heroine are forced to wed in order to
Secure Peace Between The peace between the and MacPherson clans The way this story starts guarantees a hostile situation between our couple and their clans I have to admire Ailis courage to agree to wed her Buried enemy and to see that this is what both clans need I liked her She had many challenges to over come One is being forced into hernemy s territory and having veryone look at her with suspicion and misgivings As for Bhaic he is the mbodiment of a sexy Highlander I found his discerption to my liking but he lacked mpathy towards his new wife Ailis He doesn t help her out doesn t asy her transition nor does he make her feel at home He literally lets his brother Marcus take over her care and well he humiliates her treats her like a spy and disregards her feelings It was hard to read and I wanted to kick both men I really liked the introduction to Helen the friend that Ailis makes They are both hostages in nemy territory so they have things in common and they help ach other out Helen has spunk and I can t wait to read her story Some of the other secondary characters where nice to meet too As I pointed out at the beginning of my review it s hard for me to fall for the romance in historical s As for the romance between Ailis and Bhaic it was ok It didn t roll off the pages It felt forced at times and their interactions where hot and cold They would be arguing and then they d have a warm moment where you think things are turning around but then the next moment they are back to arguing EhAll around I did have a delightful time reading Highland Spitfire I didn t hate nor love it but I still njoyed it and I m actually curious to read on in the Highland Weddings series Rated 3 Stars 35 Stars uick review hereLove my highlander romance and this one is well written We begin the story two feuding clans Ailis Robertson from one clan and Bhaic McPherson from the other These two are being forced to marry to nd generations of blood shed and if they don t their Father s will be killed This author did a great job of taking me into the time period with beautiful and detail description Felt merced into the world of the highlander castle life and pictured scenes in my mind asily The romance was a steady and sure build that was sweet hot and fun The two characters had chemistry and wonderful dialogue Great secondary characters "On a side note Marcus and Helen need their romance told too " a side note Marcus and Helen need their romance told too Reviewed for herding cats burning soup posting to blog 61919 Spitfire landed on my review pile a few rm years ago I loved the cover and accepted it Then realized Mary Wine is the pen name of Dawn Ryder Who I d just tried anddid not like at all cue the blogger groan So it s sat on the review pile for a few years I finally tackled it It wasn t knock me over amazing but it wasn t so bad ither YayThe Gist Rival clans and a King s Regent who s had A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, enough of all the fighting and killing over a stupid generations old grudge His solution The Laird s kids are gonna marry They have no choice Either they marry at that moment or he s going to slaughter both clans and be done with all of them Soa wedding With two very re.
