The Highlander’s Pirate Lass is an entertaining rollercoaster of a romance. The characters, plot, and action combine to create an unforgettable journey. This book is a fast-paced, action-packed, passionate adventure.
Eliza Wentworth finds herself stranded on a Scottish island, not knowing what became of her ship and crew. Beck Macquarie sails the seas capturing pirates. Beck and his brothers are trying to re-populate their island. However, the island is cursed. Eliza is independent and strong-willed, yet she also has a quiet vulnerability that shows in certain moments. Beck is courageous and will do anything for those he loves. I enjoyed both Beck and Eliza’s characters. Captain John, a father figure, raised Eliza. I found Eliza’s quoting of what Captain John would do tiresome at times; however, it was a well-used device to showcase Eliza’s strengths and weaknesses.
The attraction between Beck and Eliza is instant and all-consuming. The couple’s passion is off the charts. Beck and Eliza’s connection is strong from the start and grows in heat and intensity throughout the book.
The plot held a bit of romance, adventure, danger, and battle. There was something eye-catching occurring throughout the story. The cast of characters was colorful and added spice to the story. The book flowed well, keeping me interested and turning the page. The Highlander’s Pirate Lass is the second book in The Brother’s Of Wolf Isle series. These stories focus on the Macquarie brother’s road to love and the breaking of their island’s curse. This novel grabbed me and didn’t let go. It was an exhilarating journey of romance and adventure.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
