Darroc MacConacher spends sleepless nights dreaming of a raven-haired beauty who makes him ache with desire. Then his dream comes true: the lady with her lush curves and fair skin appears shipwrecked on his shores. Darroc is immediately drawn to her strength and beauty, and from the moment she lays eyes on this powerful, broad-shouldered warrior, Lady Arabella MacKenzie knows she'll never want another man.
But theirs is a forbidden love. The MacKenzies drove the MacConachers from their lands and destroyed their honor. Now, Darroc can use this sapphire-eyed seductress to shatter his foes. Yet how can he deny the passion that burns between him and Arabella, and ruin the one woman who touches his very soul?
Having read Duncan MacKenzie’s story I was thrilled to find that his daughter had one of her very own. Arabella MacKenzie grows weary of her father scaring all and any potential suitors away. As she watches her sister marry and blossom with child Arabella takes matters into her own hands. She decides on an adventure to see the Seal Isles but she does not make it to her beloved Isles. Arabella’s ship is attacked and Darroc MacConacher the leader of the very clan that the Mackenzie’s are feuding with rescues her from sure death.
Darroc and Arabella’s attraction is an instant one. Once Darroc realizes who she is he knows he must fight the attraction he has for Arabella. Add in a ghost, meddlesome clansmen, and superstition and the mayhem begins. Arabella has won over everyone in the MacConacher castle but one. It seems that Darroc is bound and determined to keep them apart. Can love prove stronger than hate? Will they deny themselves or deny the feud between the two clans and let love take its course?
Arabella proves to be a great woman. She loves wholeheartedly and is full of spirit and who could not love the brooding Darroc. He is a warrior with the heart of gold. The bond of love that grows between these two is a wonder to read. As the two seem to have everything going against them they fight to prevail and the reader is along for the ride to cheer them on.
A beautiful story set in the great land of Scotland. Sue-Ellen Welfonder weaves an enchanting tale full of great imagery. Her characters are full of depth and emotion. I truly enjoyed this book and am eagerly awaiting the next in this series. A Highlander’s Temptation is a wonderful book that should not be missed.
