When a mad lass in trousers shoots at him, Munro "Bear" MacLawry isn't sure what impresses him more-the girl's sure aim or her irresistibly tempting curves. Catriona MacColl has fled to the Highlands with her half-sister to escape an unwanted wedding, and wants no part of him, nor any man. But he can't abandon the flame-haired, sharp-tongued wildcat now that he's discovered her-not when she fits so perfectly in his arms...
Munro has more than earned his nickname-he's a well-muscled, well-favored mountain of a man with an engaging bad-boy grin and a string of well-satisfied lasses behind him. Bringing Catriona food, blankets, candles, everything she needs to survive a winter in an abandoned abbey, Munro is an unexpected gift in her reckless bid for freedom-and an unexpected complication. Clan MacDonald has plans for her, and they don't include her falling for a MacLawry. But this man makes her feel like a woman-and he may be her one chance to live a life about which she's only dared dream...
First I must say that the accent was a bit too heavy for me at times. Sometimes they use bits and pieces, but here it was all the time. And well, it takes sometime getting used too. I need time to get into things like that.
Second, wow, they so fitted each other! Munro is a bear of a man. All grrr. While Cat was, well a woman raised as a boy since her dad wanted one. And it worked out so perfectly. He did not need some dainty thing. He needed someone who could shoot, hold her own and argue with him. So yes I did see the attraction here.
The story is about her and her sister hiding from an unwanted marriage. Her sister the dainty debutante. Munro finds them and wants to protect them. I also met his siblings. They have had their own HEAs already (and those sound pretty interesting btw.)
There are secrets, romance and lots of Scots running around. There is never anything wrong with with lots Scots in kilts :)
