Revenge in the Highlands by Brandy Golden
Gallagher was born to rule Glencairn but a slip of a girl stands in his way…
Fiercely embittered from being used by men as a pawn in their schemes, Eileen is not happy to see her brother return. Nor is she happy to see the son of the laird she married, bore a son too, and whose lands and titles she inherited for her own son, arrive with him. Eileen is tough on the outside, but harbors a terrible secret within; a secret of pain, betrayal and a fierce desire for revenge.
Gallagher Glencairn returns with Morgan MacAlister and both men mean to reclaim their heritage. But Morgan’s sister, a beautiful golden-haired girl with haunted eyes, now rules his clan. Gallagher gives Eileen two choices, she can either wed him or he’ll wage war against her and take it. Gallagher was born to rule Glencairn and rule it he will.
Publisher’s Note: Old-fashioned, loving discipline plays a part in this love story. If that offends you, please do not read.
Much to her surprise, Eileen didn’t find Gallagher’s touch offensive, yet her fear would not let her enjoy his kiss. It might lead to other things, things she would never allow to happen again. Not if she had a choice in the matter.
When he lifted his head and looked down at her, Eileen didn’t turn away. She traitorously found herself wondering what it would be like to stay married to this man. To try to have a normal life…maybe even have more children. She surprised herself with her errant thoughts. She’d only known Gallagher a brief time and he wasn’t interested in her, only his inheritance. Still, his eyes mesmerized her in the moonlight, their depths dark and mysterious. yet filled at that moment with kindness.
And with something else.
She could tell he wanted her and she feared that more than anything. She had no intention of allowing her body to be used once again.
“Was that so bad?” came the soft query.
She licked her lips, formulating a reply. She was completely unaware that this simple gesture fueled Gallagher’s already kindled desires and made him want to crush her to him, to take that teasing pink tongue into his own mouth. “I’ll not be sharing your blanket with ye if that’s what ye mean.”
Gallagher reluctantly put a hobble on his desires. “Will ye tell me about it, Eileen?”
“Tell ye about what?”
“About the man that put this fear of lovemaking into your heart and body. After all, we are married. Why shouldn’t we enjoy each other for as long as it lasts?”
His silvery eyes glinted down at her and Eileen’s patience broke. What was it with these men? “And why don’t ye go straight to Hell,” she snapped. “Is that all ye men think about? Your pleasure…and your sons?”
I’m a sweet romance writer with a bit of the hot and spicy thrown in. I love creating wonderful stories that the reader can immerse themselves in and leave the real world behind for awhile. I especially love strong alpha males who aren’t afraid to take their girl in hand if she needs it. I live in the midwestern United States with my family and I really love cowboy stories especially. However, I’ll write about anything that comes to mind. The imagination is endless and you never know when a sudden idea will pop up that you just have to write about. If you are enjoying the Revenge series so far, please feel free to leave a review, I would love it.
Oh, and just so you know, these books all stand alone. Each book is a complete love story but some of the characters overflow into each other. But there are no cliffhangers to leave you dangling in the wind like a soap opera! I’m working on the third one right now and it should be along sometime this year.
