She's On Her Way to Safety

It's a sign of Lady Rosalia Armstrong's desperation that she's seeking refuge in a place as rugged and challenging as the Scottish Highlands. She doesn't care about hardship and discomfort, if only she can become master of her own life. Laird Ciaran MacGregor, however, is completely beyond her control...

He Redefines Dangerous...

Ciaran MacGregor knows it's perilous to get embroiled with a fiery Lowland lass, especially one as headstrong as Rosalia. Having made a rash promise to escort her all the way to Glengarry, now he's stuck with her, even though she challenges his legendary prowess at every opportunity. When temptation reaches its peak, he'll be ready to show her how he really is...on and off the battlefield.
 This book was an OK read. However given the title of the series "Bad Boys of the Highlands", I was ready for some Hard Core, Hunky Highland Hotties. After reading the book, I think the series could have been titled "Kittens in Mittens". Ciaran was likable to a point, but when it came to this silly oath that he made to his father it was just ridiculous. I can't see any man denying himself a woman he so "strongly desires" as the book suggest his feelings towards Rosalia are.  There is really nothing standing between Ciaran and Rosalia, except this promise that he made to his father to see his younger brother set straight in life.  That is not a valid reason for Ciaran to deny himself the woman he most desires.  Especially when the feeling is mutual. I can only give this book 3 stars and that was being generous because I simply love reading about Highlanders, but this bad boy was more like pecking mother hen!
