Where are this man’s nipples? And, seriously, what is going on with his hair? I’m seeing bows but I’m guessing they’re probably braids tied off with leather or something. Some serious pecs, though. He must lift a lot.Black Raven's Lady Published by Avon on October 21, 2014
Genres: Historical, Romance
Feisty Lady Raine Cameron has been surrounded her whole life by gossip claiming she is not her father's daughter. Determined to find her true heritage, the dark-haired beauty boards the Black Raven under false pretenses in search of the man who she believes is her father, a man who is also a traitor to Scotland. Only the Black Raven himself stands in her way…
Laird Keir MacNeil has a reputation for being a ruthless and powerful ship captain. On a mission to apprehend Scotland's most wanted traitor, he never expected to see Raine on his ship. Keir vows to keep Raine out of harm's way and return her to her family untarnished. But as his lust for her grows, he must choose between honor and the woman he never expected to desire.
Quickie review: Hey, an enjoyable story! (Was that too short? Okay. Bit more, then.) I liked the push-pull of the relationship and appreciated that this wasn’t an insta-love (there was a little insta-ness because of the fairy enchantment but the whole romance thing was bound to happen anyway. Keir just needed a little more time because of his pigheadedness. Darned alpha Scots.). Raine was adorably independent, especially for that time period. She was gonna do what she was gonna do and damn the consequences. And Keir was stuck making sure she didn’t get her self killed doing it. Lots of battles of will, which is always a good thing. Now, I haven’t read the prior two in this series but it was more than readable without hitting up the whole series. Again, another good thing!
