Romance Historical

It Begins As A Ploy...And Becomes A Pleasure. But Raelynd's designated intended interests her far less than his quietly powerful brother Crevan, a man born to lead. Though bound by honour and committed to his sworn duty, Crevan cannot resist a taste of Raelynd's crimson lips when offered - and then another and another - until the unlikely couple is entangled in both a public deception and each other's hearts... Raelynd Schellden has determined that she does not want to marry. Yet as the oldest of Lord Schellden’s twin daughters, it is a choice that may not be hers to make. After the humiliating set down of her last suitor, the King has chosen a Low-land raised Scottish nobleman from his court to marry one of Lord Schellden’s daughters and become the Schellden heir. Desperate to protect his clan from an outsider who doesn't understand, or care for the ways of his clan, Lord Schellden hatches a plan. If he can catch his daughters in a compromising situation and force an engagement using his long time alliance with the neighboring McTiernay clans he can maintain his clan's safety and also have a viable heir for the King. After watching the McTiernay twins Craig and Crevan follow his twin daughters into the stables, Lord Schellden does catch the twins together. He was dismayed, however, when what he interrupted wasn’t as compromising as he had hoped. He pulled Craig and Crevan aside, and coming to a compromise, he struck a deal with the McTiernays. Fake an engagement for a month. That would be long enough for Lord Schellden to convince the Lowlander that he didn’t have what it would take to become a Highland Laird. Things don’t go as completely planned, and as Raelynd and Crevan become closer they realize that they are engaged to the wrong person, even though the engagement is false. This becomes clear especially when the Lowland Noble proves to be more than adequate for the job of Schellden Laird.

Re: Tempting the Highlander

Great review and I must say I really enjoyed reading this book! I loved how the story moved between the intriguing action going on between the double set of twins and the backstage manoeuvring and strategic thinking between the father of Raelynd and Meriel and the elder McTiernay brothers. Lady Laurel is a wonderful force in her own right as well as Rowena in knowing how to get the best out of the people they deal with. I also enjoyed how Michele Sinclair set a strong context of life in the castle by having Laurel set them to differing tasks to development their skills and awareness of work they needed to do; however, occasionally Meriel and Raelynd did seem a little too clueless for their time. Given that, it was a still a capturing read and delightful read with its own special plot twists.
This is the first book I read in the series so I am definitely going to go back and read the tales of the three older brothers as well as looking forward to the upcoming books on the rest of the seven handsome and strong brothers. I had better put that on my Christmas wish list!
