The Guardian (Return of the Highlanders)
by Margaret Mallory
List Price: $7.00
Published in 2011
I fell in love with Margaret Mallory with her All The King's Men Series. Those luscious covers and the fantastic stories. It's what I came to expect with Ms. Mallory. She's like Johanna Lindsey only so much better in her own way.
The Guardian is the first of the new series: Return of the Highlanders. I have a soft spot for any romance books with Highlanders in it. Ian MacDonald is kind (as demonstrated when he was a young lad being followed around by an urchin) and sometimes a bit misguided man, but above all, he's got heart. Sileas is the perfect girl for him. I did not say that she's perfect, only that she's perfect for him. I admire her self-control and demeanor. If I were in her place, I would probably have hit Ian on the head with an iron skillet!
There's a bit of cloak and dagger and some thrilling moment when Sileas took a trip. I like the progression of the romance and the hot sex that follows. Susan Mallory rocks!
