Have a Highland Fling

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! The weather here is still wishy-washy--Friday and Saturday it was nearly 70 degrees, and we were in t-shirts; today it´s going to be low 40s and breezy. I know Mother Nature is fickle, but this is getting ridiculous.

My book room is painted except for the trim, which will be done tonight, so this week, the great book move begins. I´ve already begun emptying the bookcases--three down, seven to go. I´m really very excited. I told my guys I can lock myself in my room to read. None of them were really as thrilled by the idea as I was. But I can´t wait--a whole room all to myself and my books. What more could a reading fanatic ask for? Besides more books, that is.


This week, I have two new books to add to my new room, the first by Terri Brisbin: Once Forbidden
Once Forbidden
, the third in Berkley´s Highland Fling Romance line. (We reviewed the first two here in the past several months.) Anice MacNab´s wedding night to the heir of the Mackendimen clan is something out of a nightmare, and then her husband is sent away. Robert Mathieson, illegitemate brother to her husband, is called back to Dunnedin while the laird searches for an heir. Once she learns her husband is dead, Anice has so many emotional issues to overcome to go beyond friendship with Robert, and Robert has his own issues to deal with regarding his family and their secrets. Lovely settings, wonderfully drawn characters and very realistic conflicts made this one a great read. Of Cupid´s five arrows, I´m giving it four and a half. A real keeper, especially for lovers of Scottish romance.


The second book I want to share with you this week is a contemporary romance, Lisa Hendrix´s Runaway Bay
Runaway Bay
(Jove). Jackie Barnett´s cad of a boyfriend dumps her and cancels their trip to the islands, telling her she´s not his type. Her boss insists she go anyway, because the head of the Phelps Foundation will be there, and he wants her to work on getting them a grant. Plus her archrival, Reade Hunter is going to be there, and there´s no way she´ll let him get the grant, so she goes. The trouble is, Jackie´s not exactly a tropical island kind of woman, and Reade seems to be always around. There were a few parts of this one that really made me chuckle. Jackie is a woman I think many of us can relate to, and Reade, well, he´s a romance hero, typically frustrating and sexy. I was a bit disappointed with Jackie toward the end, but I got over it. This one´s earned three and a half arrows.

Until next week, happy reading!
