I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Between a Highlander and a Hard Place (Highland Weddings, #5) by Mary Wine
A fierce Englishwoman on the runA Highland Laird who needs a proper wifeAnd a desire neither can resist
Athena Trappes thinks she's in love...until she discovers the scoundrel only wanted her as his bit on the side. Enraged, she does what any spirited Englishwoman would do: set fire to his belongings, incur his dangerous wrath, and flee—immediately. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks freedom in the wilds of Scotland.
Highland Laird Symon Grant lost his wife years ago, and it's his duty to find another. Athena is not exactly what the clan has in mind for him, but Symon's heart burns with unexpected passion for the woman who would risk everything to be free.
A Historical Romance book filled with Highlanders, what's not to like. Athena is a naive young lady who put her trust in the wrong man, one that was above her station in life. When she finally learns what a mistake she made she needs to flee, and what better place to flee to than the Highlands. Thankfully she meets Symon and he is able to bring her around to believing not all men are bad.
This was an easy fun, quick read with plenty of romance. I would recommend this to any who enjoy historical romance books.
