In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy)

In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy) - Maya Banks Having read and loved books from Maya Banks, I started this book with high hopes. All the raving reviews only elevated my expectations higher.

Maybe that is why I was disappointed.

I still like Maya Bank's writing and find it a joy to follow her proses. But this book has a superficiality that I cannot ignore. The repeated "I love yous" got on my nerves too. At one point I wanted to roll my eyes at either Mairin or Ewan. The child in me wanted to yell: OK OK I know you love her and she loves you and everybody loves everybody, then why the hell am I reading your story? Shouldn't the story have ended 100 pages ago?

Mairin is one of those covent-raised heiress who is supposed to be pure and gentle. She is all that, only with a hint of naivity that borders on stupidity. Ewan is another highlander who is usually full of lust. Nothing spetacular about him. I did not find the plot very interesting either. It was a rather unenthusiastic read.

I am giving 3 stars because of Maya Bank. As I said, I do enjoy her writing and style and will continue to read her other books. I hope to see characters who are more developled than Mairin and Ewan, who throw I love you as if it was some magic spell and engage in sexual activities as if there was no tomorrow.
