Marian Fletcher Blackley, Duchess of Endsmere, has been on the run from the English Crown for weeks since killing her abusive husband…no matter that it was self-defense. She has only one safe place to go—the MacKinlay clan in Scotland, where her sister is the laird’s wife. War Chief Cameron MacKinlay has vowed never to marry after witnessing his widowed mother’s grief. He has his lands and his clan, and that’s enough for a good life. When one day a sprite of a lass comes running out of the forest with hounds nipping at her heels and an English bounty hunter not far behind, he feels compelled to save her by claiming the disheveled duchess is his wife. But he certainly didn’t intend to marry her for real! And now he’ll do anything to protect her…
Before I start with my overly waffled review, let me take a moment to fully absorb just how glorious this cover is, I mean seriously, look at it…..isn’t it fabulous? I’m getting all flustered…those arms, phew, I do love a fine pair of arms!!! That kilt!! That marvellous….sword 😉
I don’t think I can take all the excitement and that’s before I open that wonderful cover to read the steamy and provocative words within, I love the passion and the unpredictability of the story, it kept me guessing and pulled at the heartstrings as well as making me swoon into a puddle of mush.
This is the first book I’ve read by Allison B. Hanson and I can definitely say it won’t be the last, especially as I have discovered this fabulous author with the first book of a brand new series, and I can’t wait to read more from the Clan MacKinlay.
How much did I love this book??? In fact, the word loved seems rather lacking as I adored Cam…I mean this book 😉 I think can see where this review is going to go.
Unpredictable and satisfying plot!
Gorgeous scenery and setting!
Sexy as hell hero…hmmm! I think I may have mentioned him.
A wonderful cast of characters all of which are fabulously depicted and realistic.
Beautifully atmospheric historical detail.
A brave, yet fragile heroine.
Gorgeous, sexy, gruff, protective, loyal, complex hero…whom has the sexiest growl and various other parts….low groan 😉
I think you may have guessed, I rather liked luscious rugged Cam!
The story open’s in an explosive fashion where our Lady Marian kills her abusive vile husband, after which she must flee so she isn’t sent to the gallows for murdering a peer of the realm. She can only think of on safe place in which she can go and that is to her sister who is married to the Laird of the clan; MacKinlay. In a twist of fate, she is ruthlessly pursued by a bounty hunter only to find safety in the arms – and what arms!!! Of our War Chief of the Clan; glorious Cam, who saves her by taking her as his wife. Something he never wanted but has suddenly found himself with!
The chemistry and blossoming romance between Cam and Mari are off the charts, they both find it difficult to voice their true feelings and emotions, I love how they bond over books and the way they tell each other how they feel, it’s so lovely and perfect for these two as they both struggle with taking steps forward.
Cam, having seen the way his mother grieved for her husband he is determined he won’t marry, he won’t allow any wife of his to go through the same. He wants to do right by his clan and his land, but meeting sweet, fragile, shy and lonely Marian he tries to hide the bubble feelings of lust and love even from himself. Cam is such a good man, he is a prime specimen of godly, complex testosterone-fuelled warrior…oh, heaven, I’m going off into a swoon again!!
Her Accidental Highlander Husband is everything we lovers of historical romance want to read, fast-paced, exciting, steamy romance. Cleverly written, each major plot point is executed with perfection which makes you tingle with absolute delight as you are drawn further and further into the story.
It’s full of passion, emotional conflict and with a hint of danger, highly recommended!
