Blurb: Passion sparks in USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Teresa Medeiros’s irresistibly tempting new romance after a sexy  Highlander kidnaps his rival’s spirited English bride Emmaline Marlowe 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.  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. So why does he still want her so badly for himself? Stealing his enemy’s bride was simple, but can he claim her innocence without losing his heart? 

Review: There is nothing better than a nice classic historical romance with a sexy Scot. Come on, you know exactly what I am talking about. They are the classic historical romance character because really, how many sane women can resist that sexy baroque. This book is definitely no exception, the Scot is sexy, the English miss is full of fire and they absolutely perfect for each other.

As I said before a Highland romance is the quintessential comfort read. It has everything you could possibly want in a romance and it usually involves a trip through the Highlands or English country and that is always a great way to spend a rainy afternoon in somewhere other than an exotic lush country side. I enjoyed this book for the beautiful scenery and the trip up a mountain and into a haunted forest alone, but that is not all I loved about this story.

I love the meek little character Emma starts out as and the fiery lady that she turns into. I love the hard edged Scot she tames and I love the spark they make together. I have read many of Ms. Medeiros' book and these characters are some of my favorites of hers. They are beautifully written and fun to read.

The greatest thing about this book is the humor and the plot. They are seamlessly woven together by the wonderful author and make the story enjoyable to read. Ms. Medieros takes the best of historical romance and smashes it together into the best s'more of a historical tale you could want. Definitely check out this book if you need a new comfort read.
