So much emotion, so much guile along with the high romance between Gahan and Moira made this a book I could not put down until the very end. ~ Under the Covers

Among the clans of Scotland, duty and honor is paramount. When Moira Fraser is given in marriage to Achaius Matheson, a man almost three times her age. But instead of running for the highlands she does her duty to her half-brother Laird Bari Fraser and her clan. Moira feels she needs to make up for her evil and deranged half-sister Sandra who unsuccessfully poisoned the Laird of the Sutherland clan.

Gahan Sutherland is the bastard son of the Laird Lytge Sutherland and although Lytge has recognized Gahan publicly as his son he still gets criticized for being a bastard. When Gahan happens onto Achaius Matheson’s land he is immediately enthralled with bride-to-be Moira and unsuccessfully tries to dissuade her from doing her duty. His reasons however aren’t entirely selfish as he does so in an attempt to prevent a clan war. If Moira’s brother and the perspective husband unite in marriage, it could mean trouble for the Sutherland clan.

Deception and betrayal are two words that jump out at the reader in this tale, and it seems that everyone is playing a game of sorts. From Laird Achaius Matheson who wants to set up his wife, all the way down to the Sutherlands, whose soon to be revealed secret makes it even harder for any peace to be had between these clans. Among all this deception a love between Gahan and Moira sprouts that can not be denied by either party. How can this woman married to the scheming old laird be free to love Gahan? Will the Sutherland’s be able to expose Bari Fraser for the low-life he actually is? Oh, so many questions are answered when you read How to Handle a Highlander by Mary Wine.

How to Handle a Highlander is a fabulous chapter in Mary Wine’s Highlander series. So much emotion, so much guile along with the high romance between Gahan and Moira made this a book I could not put down until the very end. Mary Wine knows her stuff when it comes to her history and she never bores but makes the reader crave more. The mistrust between the Sutherland and the Fraser clans brought about such emotion, especially when so much of the mistrust is directed towards Moira, who because of her sibling’s deeds, has earned a bad reputation, unjustly or not. I could go on and on but then some secrets may slip and I don’t want that to happen. So just pick up your copy of Mary Wine’s How to Handle a Highlander and see for yourself.
