hmm.....this book.....if you love highland stories, you might find it entertaining.
I have read 2 more from the series. The first one [b: Captured by the Highlander|8697204|Captured by the Highlander (Highlander, #1)|Julianne MacLean|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388272717s/8697204.jpg|13569858] was not bad so I went on to book 2 [b: Claimed by the Highlander|8764393|Claimed by the Highlander (Highlander, #2)|Julianne MacLean|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388185580s/8764393.jpg|13637771] with enthusiasm but was rather disappointed. The 3rd book is this one and I think it is somewhere in between the first 2 books.
This book picks up after the end of book 2, when the "witch", whose name I forgot so I will just call her the witch, failed to break up Angus and Gwen and was told to leave and never return.
Angus's Laird of War, Lachlan (just what is a Laird of War? I will have to google it), is the hero of this story. He was cursed by the same said witch that if any woman who slept with him would conceive and die at childbirth, which was how Lachlan's first wife died many years ago. Ever since Lachlan had been looking for the witch to lift the curse because he could not have sex. (Seriously, this is his single motive in most of the book)
Then entered an heiress, Catherine, who had lost her memory but was returned home after 5 long years. She looked eerily like the witch. Lachlan found her and of course immediately assumed that Catherine was the witch. And so on and so forth. Witch or no witch? Sex or no sex? To do or not to do, that is the question.
I was really scared that Catherine would turn out to be the witch. In book 2 the witch was really evil, I mean, wicked kind of evil. I just didn't know how Julianne Maclean was going to redeem such an evil character. I did not like book 2 so much so I wasn't crazy about the part when Lachlan brought Catherine to Angus and Gwen. And how the book wrapped up.....I was rolling my eyes. Really, Lachlan? Your penis just "accidentally" slipped inside and you could not pull out? And thank God Catherin is not the witch. The witch is the evil twin sister who at the end, decided to let go of her evil past and comfortably resided in the big house which belonged to Catherine and lived happily ever after? And the curse, don't even get me started. It was a joke! The witch was a "seer", she had no "magic". She just wanted to Lachlan to suffer and told a big fat lie.
I finished the book because Julianne MacLean can write. It is not a chore to read her stories. I do hope to see more depth in her future stories. Her stories are usually very sexual and it can only carry a writer so far.
