AN ALLURING LASS
Emmaline Grey spends her days with her beloved dog, dreaming of the sea-until a brawling Highlander shatters her quiet life to pieces. Though her blindness prevents her from seeing his face, his voice is a warm blend of velvet and silk, and his rakehell ways unmistakable. Risking the wrath of a rival clan as she nurses him back to health, Emma soon realizes the real danger is the magnetic pull she feels to this half-naked Scot recovering in her bed.
A RECKLESS ROGUE
With his rugged handsomeness and wicked charm, Malcolm Grant wants nothing more out of life than whisky, women, and the occasional war. The only lass he's ever trusted left him with more scars than a battlefield. Yet now at the mercy of this sweet stranger, Malcolm can barely resist the gentle hands that make him feverish with desire-until Emma, the one he will never have, is the only woman he wants . . .
This was my first book by Paula Quinn, but since I’m a fan of Scottish/Highlander Romance I am always up for giving new-to-me authors in the genre a try!
I have to say, this author certainly knows what she’s doing. The characters were well written and the romance was perfectly portrayed. In fact, it was pretty hard to put down. When I first picked it up I’d just received my copy and so I thought I’d look through a couple pages to get an idea for the feel of the book. It was my night to cook dinner, so I was just going to read one or two chapters tops before I got things started. Well, we had take-out that night and I read over half the book then and completed it the following day. That’s how much it pulled me in!
The book progressed quickly, and the plot remained consistent both things I enjoy as I don’t like when a book drags on and on without really heading in any sort of direction. Despite being blind, Emma was not weak. She was a strong, intelligent woman which sometimes I think is something this genre lacks so I’m glad that Paula Quinn was able to give us readers that in The Taming of Malcolm Grant. There are a few twists in the book that threw me for a loop – in a good way and only assisted in pulling me further into this fictional world the author crafted.
I look forward to reading more of Paula Quinn’s books in the future and highly recommend fans of this genre give her books a try – you won’t be disappointed!
