Marissa Barclay has been looking forward to her season to be introduced into society. This was her only chance to find a husband who was a true gentleman.  Mari didn’t want to go through the horror that her sister had in her first marriage.  With her sister being pregnant, Mari’s plans were being ruined.   Now she was being saddled with the most irritating chaperone alive, her brother-in-law.

Jamie MacLeod was suppose to be watching his brother’s estates and keeping an eye on Mari, as well.  Any other female would appreciate his protection and swoon at his feet, but not Mari.  She is more stubborn than a mule and disobeys Jamie every chance she gets.  But Mari’s anger doesn’t mask her attraction to him and Jamie loves pointing this out. 

Mari and Jamie share some heated arguments and embraces.  When a past enemy resurfaces, it becomes a matter of life and death.  Jamie comes to Mari’s rescue just in time, and Mari is faced with a truth she can’t deny.  She wants Jamie.

Rogue of the Isles is the second book in the Rogue series, but it doesn’t take a backseat.  I was glad that Cynthia Breeding brought this couple together because I love a couple that argues.  Jamie is a man who knows his appeal to women and he can’t seem to understand why Mari isn’t panting after him.  Mari is secretly panting after Jamie, but I love the fact that she’s smart enough to not let him know.  She is the kind of woman who has her own mind and isn’t afraid to use it.  My favorite scene involved Jamie throwing Mari over his shoulder.  She’d pushed him too far and he meant to let her know.  The fallout from that scene really hurt Mari and even though Jamie didn’t think it was a big deal, he went the extra mile to correct the situation just so Mari could be happy. I was so touched I actually sighed.  If you love a highlander with heart, I beg of you, pick up this story and enjoy.
