Laird of the Mist
by Paula Quinn
They call him The Devil, but his kiss is heaven.
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 can not 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 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.
Paula Quinn, in Laird of the Mist, has created a Highlander hero who completely absorbs the reader. Callum MacGregor is the quintessential Scottish laird whose main goal in life is the protection of his clan. Outlawed by the English, stripped of his name, he nonetheless continues as laird of the clan MacGregor.
When he meets a daughter of the clan Campbell, his sworn enemies, sparks fly. Ms. Quinn weaves historical accuracy and romantic fiction into a thoroughly satisfying read. When I closed the covers of this book, I felt bereft...I had not gotten nearly enough of this couple.
Ms. Quinn's characters are richly drawn, from the main characters of Callum and Kate, to the supporting characters of Graham Grant (whose story is coming out in 2008 and I'm looking forward to it as well), Callum's sister Maggie, and Kate's brother Robert.
When you finish Laird of the Mist, you will feel like you are leaving friends you know well. And, friends you want to revisit again and again.
