In Bed with a Highlander - Maya Banks


In Bed with a HighlanderBestselling 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.


The McCabe Trilogy

Well well well what lookie what I stumbled across here! I am surprised at how much I liked this novel. I have read alot of Maya Banks in the past but nothing Historical from her, let alone a Highland Novel. I got this book on the day it was released by for some reason kept putting it on the back burner while I read other things, but after coming across a book trailer that made me almost wet myself in hysterics I went and picked it up straight away.
Mairin Stuart has hidden and lived her whole life inside a nunnery. She is the lone heir to an amazing bounty that most men would die to get their hands on.  Duncan Cameron is an evil man and will stop at nothing to wed Mairin and take her dowry, but when he captures Mairin he doesn’t expect the hell  cat that she is. Mairin fights for her life and for the life of a child she must also protect.  When Mairin will not submit and marry Duncan, he brutalizes Mairin in an agonizing way. With the help on others, Mairin and the boy escape Duncan and head straight for McCabe land.  Ewan McCabe is the boy’s fathers and has taken charge of protecting Mairin now that she is on his lands. But when Ewan discovers who Mairin is and that she might just be the salvation he has been looking for, he decides to take Mairin as his Bride.
Ewan didn’t expect to find Mairin, but he quickly becomes enchanted by her. She is sweet, feisty, speaks her mind and very innocent. Mairin knew she had to marry to protect herself, and when Ewan offers his hand in marriage she realises that he is everything that she envisioned her husband to be; Handsome and a loyal protector.  The two run thru a mile of obstacles that get thrown their way but both pull thru only to fall more in love with each other at every turn.
Both characters were fantastic! I didn’t have any whims about either. Both were fun and quirky. Ewan’s brothers, Alaric and Caelan;  both intrigued me as well and I cannot wait to read the next two books to read what is install for them. Lucky for us! The second story has already been released and the third is only a month away!
Recommend to anyone who loves a good hot romance.
