Known throughout Scotland and London as a wild uawkins, Jack is accustomed to waking in dire situations, but Long ago, he and Fiona reveled in a youthful passion.
Now, the fiery, sensual lass is his once more. And though their marriage is in name only, Jack is determined to win her forever — body and soul I loved Fiona from the first, she was strong willed and passionate.
Her plan was ridiculous and morally uncomfortable, but it was more amusing than anything else. Jack’s initial behavior view spoiler [ manhandling Fiona when he found they were married, intentionally saying hurtful things, leaving her alone after their first time etc hide spoiler ] didn’t endear me to him at all, so I guess that made it easier for me to ignore the moral issues with forci.

The scenes where Fiona went out “carousing” and when they tried to make each other jealous were so fun! I matrmonio wish Jack had realized his love a little earlier, and that we had gotten to see him suffering a little bit with that knowledge. I like my unwilling to love heroes to have a little angst over the intensity of their feelings before confessing, I have to say. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

It’s still entertaining, though. The two protagonists have a history, they get married because it will stop the feud between the two families. The story is a stew of a love story with a bit of humour and a decent dose of angst thrown in, alleged paranormal abilities, and suspense.

Suspend your disbelief, because view spoiler [why else would you root for someone who kidnapped another person to marry. At first I was annoyed by the behaviour of one of them, but considering how they ended up in that situation in the first place, I could understand. Overall, an okay way to pass the afternoon if you’re in the mood for this genre.
Aug 04, Taiyesha-Duchess of Indiana rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I hate writing descriptions into my reviews because However, what I will tell you is that this was a great book for me to read. However, One has to be in the right mindset. There were some problems with this book, the characters are not OVERLY likable and the situation created here borders on the ridiculous in its own right. When you think of great highlander romance authors like MacGregorBanks, or Moning come to mind.
Assuredly, Hawkins is not in the league of those women. However, when one just wants to feel good and read a solid book with an open mind it is rather perfect.
Medicine is not judged upon how it works twenty four seven, it is judged by how it performs in certain situations. I feel the same about books.
Luckily, I’m more of a reader than a reviewer which is shown in my very unorthodox reviews and that gives me the luxury of being able to seek out things because I want to, rather than feel the need to. So i look at books holistically, this book is not perfect but it performed for me what I needed it to. It was fun, solid, great sex, and enjoyable yet very light. I didn’t shed a tear or get to engrossed,it kept my heart light.
It was a fun start to a book series that I definitely plan on putting on my TBR list in case I ever feel the need to read one again. If any of you are looking for something light and fun that will leave you nice and content then this is it.

However, if you are looking for the next Ulysses or Shakespearean classic I would kindly suggest you come back to this on another day: The blurb was the reason I chose this book, but how was I to know that the despicable, drunk lout escaping married women’s bed in the prologue would be the hero?!

Now, there are many a heroes I have detested but Jack, oh Jack how I disliked you. Then there’s a crazy assassination attempt and crazy nefarious plot out of nowhere, but it was way too late to save the book. Egh, this one was a totally frustrating read. Didn’t enjoy it at all.

How to Abduct a Highland Lord was a decent read. Not anything I’d rave about but it did manage to keep my attention until the end.
I didn’t find the characters very interesting save for Fiona’s brothers but none of them were completely boring either. This book was mostly just a bunch of fluff.
It was fine for some light reading to kill some time by and really that’s all I expected from it anyways. Aug 17, Megan rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed this book.
It is the first in the MacLean Curse Series. The heroine kidnapped the drunken hero and married him to stop a fued.
He is not thrilled when he sobers up and finds himself married.
They had a short relationship 15 years earlier and the passion is still there. The main theme of the book was freedom. He valued his freedom above all else. He liked to go out at night “carousing” as she calls it so the heroine decides to give him a dose of his own medicine and decides to I really enjoyed this book.

Needless to say his alpha male side which I love a good alpha comes out and they eventually admit their love for eachother. Good story overall and I plan to read the whole series. Jun 15, Sababa rated it really liked it Shelves: My first Karen Hawkins read and I am so glad!! From the moment I started reading until, almost the end, it was perfect. I absolutely loved the adjustment after their marriage, their quarrel, their fight to gain control.
