In Bed with a Highlander Summary

In Bed with a Highlander - Bestselling author Maya Banks’s beguiling new trilogy features three unforgettable brothers risking everything to save their clan and their legacy—and to surrender their hearts to love.
Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan’s clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin’s strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that means more than revenge and land.

From the Paperback edition.

In Bed with a Highlander Review

  • In Bed With a Highlander

    By Karen Fields
    Maya Banks, again, has written a wonderful story. The love story between Ewen and Mairin is wonderful and steamy. The loyalty of his clan to him and and their mistress is remarkable even in the face of deceit. The character development was done well. I loved this story and never wanted it to end.
  • Simply Good

    By EH-8359-6006
    This book is just good, hence the 3 stars. There are very cute moments, very sexy moments, and very exciting moments. But between those moments are full, lazy writing. The main characters are also kind of dull. It seems like the author wanted to make the female protagonist kind of feisty and stubborn, but she ended up being portrayed as juvenile and quirky, which is cute!! but not really what this story needed. However, i am very excited for the next book in the series. Alaric was actually my favorite of all the characters in this book, so I’m so glad to read what happens with him! From what i’ve seen, it looks so good!

  • Way to start a new series with a BANG!

    By cinful1121
    Maya Banks has done it again!! This is a fabulous start to a brand new series from this talented author. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end and can't wait for the next installments to release, thank goodness that is back to back in Sept. & October or I may have gone scooters having to wait. One of the things I like most about Maya Banks writing is that she doesn't spend 20 pages explaining one setting or one event drawing it out to the point my eyes glaze over. She keeps a good pace with good dialogue which in turn keeps me entranced until I realize I've read the entire book. This book is Ewan McCabe & Mairin Stuart's story. He is Laird, eldest of the 3 McCabe brothers and a fierce warrior. She is the illegitimate daughter of the king who's been in hiding since she was a mere child. They are ultimately brought together by his son Crispen (who you just have to love) and initially wed to gain her dowry and lands. As she finds her footing and place within the McCabe clan she frequently causes a ruckus and disobeys her husband. It proves to be quite humorous as she has the habit of speaking out loud the thoughts in her head. Avoiding a ton of spoilers and in turn outlining the entire book I will leave off saying that this is a worthy read that will leave you wanting more! **I would like to thank Maya Banks for this Advance Reader's Copy it has been a pleasure to read and would happily do so anytime in the future**

  • So good

    By NerdyBookwormgirl
    These old Scottish romance novels are so not my thing. But I'm so hooked right now I don't care. This book was so good. I also loved Never Seduce a Scot and I'm about to buy the other two books in the McCabe trilogy. Can't wait to see what happens next...
  • Fabulous story

    By MonkeyFunkJunk
    This was the first time I actually bought a book here and I was very satisfied. The story held up and gave me one or two surprises! Couldn't stop reading. I'm going to buy the other books!

  • Love it!

    By Jeff Dees
    I have been reading historical "Scottish" themed romance/erotica books and this is probably one of the best series I have read I love how each book in this series involves the same general characters, the scene are hot and the story is great.
