Currently Reading - A Highlander Never Surrenders by Paula Quinn
Desire is the deadliest weapon of all . . .
Defending Her Was His Duty
Skilled with a sword and quick with her wit, Scottish rebel Claire Stuart cannot be tamed. And nothing can deter her from rescuing her beloved sister and saving them both from arranged marriages—not even the handsome Highlander who vows to protect Claire. His scorching gaze and fiery kiss bring her to the brink of surrender, but she belongs to no man . . .
Seducing Her Would Be His Reward
Graham Grant has had his share of lasses. But he has never met one as headstrong or as bonnie as Claire—or one with such desperate, dangerous plans. Helping her could betray his honor, his country, and more. Graham can't claim her. Yet everything in him says: Take her, make her yours, teach her pleasure, and never let her go.

This was a historical romance, at times heavy on the historical. At times I got confused - which isn't that hard for me to begin with. But it was a very good, entertaining story, and a spirited romance. Claire is the ultimate kick-ass heroine - just as good, if not better, than most men with a sword. She doesn't think she needs any help saving her sister, but Graham is determined to keep her safe. I think they made quite a good couple - her fire and his strength and sense of humor. The mystery of who was truly a traitor kept you guessing all through the story.
