With the help of a bet, a 800 year-old marriage contract, and a spell, ex-SBS solider Will might just have enough in his arsenal to capture Meghan’s heart.
Since arriving in Little Glen, Scotland, Meghan Kennedy’s life has gotten decidedly more interesting. She entered into a bet with hunky ex-SBS soldier, Will, betting him that she would not fall in love with him. She discovered an ancient marriage Contract specifically designed to join her family to Will’s and to top it all off, she learns that she had a spell cast on her…800 years before she was even born. None of it mattered, because she refused to make the same mistake twice.
Will’s hard body and sexy grin didn’t matter, his beautiful hypnotic eyes didn’t matter, and it didn’t matter that every time they kissed her body would call out for his, as though denied his touch for hundreds of years.
Ex-SBS soldier William Mackenzie is disciplined, trained to be an efficient solider and he takes the same approach with his business, and life. Then Meghan arrived, with her fiery temper and hair to match, and he knows she is lying about the reasons why she came to Little Glen, he just doesn’t care.
All he does care about is Meghan. Her feisty temper bemuses him, her beauty astounds him and her stubbornness annoys the hell out of him. Lucky for him, he doesn’t know how to quit, he can be just as stubborn and occasionally ruthless, and he will use any means necessary to get her. Of course the ‘means’ at his disposal just happen to be a bet, a marriage contract and an ancient spell, but if in the end Meghan belongs to him, who was he to argue.
Contemporary. Act/Adv. Sus/Myst
Megan was caught up in an affair that not only stripped of all her money but self esteem. In attempts to pull herself together she goes to Scotland to visit her grandfather. She will not stand for anyone ever to tell her again what she can and cannot do. She has to regain her control and getting back her feisty personality is a start. She is not a victim, she is going to gain herself confidence and no man will ever get close enough to her again to tear her apart.
When she meets Will she is attracted but she is afraid to get involved. He is attracted to her and does not understand the draw but he senses her fear and gives her plenty of space even though he can barely stand to not touch her or be out of her sight.
Folklore has it that Megan and Will will be married and a marriage contract even exists with their names on it. Neither can believe it is possibly true but their lives do change and they can't help but wonder.
If you enjoy folklore you will enjoy this from start to finish. The voice is great, sex is smut-tastic and it it a total page turner!
You want action and adventure it is here from Canada to Scotland and back to Canada. There is plenty of suspense and mystery and a good dose of humor, sex and loving. I loved this book!
5 stars in every category.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
