Laird of the Mist by Paula Quinn
PROTECTING HER WAS HIS PASSION
High-born though she is, Kate Campbell isn't afraid to draw her sword. When raiders strike, she rushes into the fray...and is lucky when a mysterious Highlander shields her from a deadly blow. Swept onto his stallion, she soon discovers that her rescuer is her clan's most hated enemy: Callum MacGregor, the man they call The Devil. Yet she cannot ignore his achingly tender touch or the way his fiery gaze leaves her breathless.
POSSESSING HER WOULD BE HIS PLEASURE
Callum MacGregor has taken many Campbell lives, but he's never saved one--until now. Mesmerized by this spirited lass, he wants her by his side, even if it means holding her for ransom. As his fingers graze her sumptuous curves and tangle in her unruly tresses, Callum realizes Kate Campbell is his most dangerous foe of all. For he can't make love to her without betraying his kinsmen and his honor...and surrendering his heart forever.
My Review: I picked up this book for two reasons. I needed a book that involved a family feud for a reading challenge that I'm doing and it came highly recommended by a few a my challenge and blogging buddies.
This was a really good story. I loved Callum. I also loved the way Ms.Quinn was true to the time period and that is was a violent time to live and she showed that through her story telling. I thought the love story between Callum and Katie was great. The scene on the horse! WOW! I also loved all of the other warriors. The secondary romance was also very sweet, I would like to have seen a little bit more of it. I already have A Highlander Never Surrenders and can't wait to read Graham's story.
