AN INNOCENT WOMAN
Emmaline Marlow is about to wed the extremely powerful laird of the Hepburn clan to save her father from debtor's prison when ruffian Jamie Sinclair bursts into the abbey on a magnificent black horse and abducts her in one strong swoop. Though he is Hepburn's sworn enemy, Emma's mysterious captor is everything her bridegroom is not -- handsome, virile, dangerous...and a perilous temptation for her yearning heart.
A DANGEROUS MAN
Jamie expects Emma to be some milksop English miss, not a fiery, defiant beauty whose irresistible charms will tempt him at every turn. But he cannot allow either one of them to forget he is her enemy and she his pawn in the deadly Highland feud between the clans. Stealing his enemy's bride was simple, but can he claim her innocence without losing his heart?
This was a captivating book! Emma is at the alter, ready to marry the earl to save her family from financial ruin when Jamie barges in and kidnaps her! Jamie has no quarrel with Emma or any reason to want her harmed, he just wants what is rightfully his that only the earl has. Emma is scared but doesn't want to show it as she is whisked away by her abductor, she is caught in the middle of a feud between the Highlanders and the earl. Jamie's plan is looking less and less like a good idea the more he gets to know Emma, he starts to want to keep her more than ransom her.
I liked almost every character in this book. Emma is the strong, dutiful daughter, who always does as she is told and what is expected of her, but she has always had spirit and been a bit of a rebel. Jamie is a caretaker of his men and a strong, if confused man. Those two are of course my favorite characters, but I also like Bon with his whit and charm. Ian who is a stubborn and a good man. All the men of Jamie's group are wonderful! Not to mention the attraction between Emma and Jamie is sweet but red hot!
I rate this book a 4/5. Very good, fun, and romantic read!
