“Maya Banks has quickly became a favorite author of mine not only for her contemporary but her historical novels as well.” ~Under The Covers
Whether its contemporary-erotica, romantic suspense or historical, Maya Banks do not miss a beat. Her novels will always consist of romantic love stories, good action, good conflict and a wonderful out come. And she never fails to bring out the tears, the never ending sighing and swooning over her heroes.
If you have read Never Seduce a Scot, you know that McHughs clan was defeated. This novel tells the “ever after” of that story. Graeme Montgomery’s Brothers Bowen and Teague are in charge of the McHugh keep. They are trying to fix issues and settle the people of the clan. It was quiet a mess when they first took over. There were betrayals, trust issues and a lot of politics. But one person’s trust Bowen wanted was Genevieve McInnis. Though, not the prettiest, Bowen is taken a back by her. I was too. Genevieve is an amazing heroine. This girl came from a well off family but she was kidnapped, used, abused by the McHughs and she did what she can to survive. She is a survivor and she went above and beyond for others. Well, Bowen sure as hell wanted her and he did everything possible to woo her. And woo her he did. The moment he decided to rescue Genevieve from the hell she is in, I was done for. He is a savior, a knight in shining armor a true hero. Bowen saw her for who she is, not her looks or past. He saw to her well being, and he gave and demanded respect for her . I love that he took his time to earn her trust and really get to know Genevieve. And let me tell you, the courtship was very sweet.
Maya Banks has quickly became a favorite author of mine not only for her contemporary but her historical novels as well.
‘“Breathe, lass, and hold on to me tight. I’ll be gentle and move slow. I want it to feel good”…he pushed forward, entering her inch by inch. Never had he taken it so slowly or been so careful. “~Bowen Montgomery
