Refer A Book Friday

Hey Everyone! Today is apparently Refer a Book Friday! I'm excited about this because I have a great book to refer. Though I've already talked about it on my blog this week, I think for right now, it's worth mentioning again.

My book to refer is a great historical romance set in Scotland. Highland Warrior It's about a woman, Caitrina, and a man, Jaime and how the world can change from a dream land of blissful ignorance, to a harsh reality in a split second. It's also about how a man can find that sometimes only a woman can shake his beliefs and how a woman can find that no matter what your mind tells you, if you're heart is in love, there is no fighting it.

This is a great book, and the author, Monica McCarty is amazing!
Here's a blurb about this book:

The ruthless enforcer of Scotland’s most powerful clan, Jamie Campbell is the most feared man in the Highlands. Raw physical strength coupled with cunning political acumen make him a powerful force with whom few men will dare to reckon. Determined to see the Highlands tamed of its lawlessness and unrest, Jamie’s objectives are clear: under the guise of seeking the Chief of Lamont’s daughter’s hand in marriage, discover whether the Lamonts are harboring any outlawed MacGregors. But guise turns to desire when he meets the beautiful spitfire who rules the household with a dainty iron fist. The fierce Highlander never expects that the woman he wants above all others will test his duty and loyalty to his clan to the breaking point.

Cosseted and adored by her family, Caitrina Lamont has no intention of abandoning her beloved father and doting four older brothers for a husband—especially a Campbell. But Jamie Campbell is nothing like the parade of suitors that Caitrina’s father usually traipses across their hall. His raw masculinity threatens her in a way no man ever had before. But when Caitrina’s idyllic world is shattered, could the man she blames for her tragedy become her only hope for the future?

This is straight from Monica McCarty's website.

  5. Thanks for keeping up on what is going on in the book/blog world! Your review was quite good! I read this book last year (?)..I think.
