A tawdry Highlander bodice ripper

I read this book at the end of June, so this review is quite a bit overdue.

To Conquer a Highlander
by Mary Wine

After the McBoyd clan ruthlessly attacked his people, Highlander Torrin, laird of the McLeren clan inadvertently takes Shannon McBoyd – daughter of the McBoyd laird – captive. Headstrong Shannon does not go quietly into her prison – where she is treated more like a princess than a prisoner. Neither Torrin nor Shannon quite knows what to make of the other. They also don’t expect their unbridled passion for one another to ever take control.


Setting. I adore reading of the Scottish highlands.


Seemed like another stereotypical tawdry bodice ripper. This doesn’t mean I hated the book. Quite the contrary. It was great for a mindless read. Though, if I wanted to read truly hot sex scenes involoving highlanders, I’d be better off picking up any of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander books or any of Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander books.


This copy was an ARC I picked up in DC. The book was due to be published in July.
