Excerpt

Today, I feel like a king with a convincing win under my belt, and the beauty on my arm is the envy of most of the guys here. Life can’t get any better.
I introduce Eevie around. She shakes hands like she means it, holds her own in conversation, and gets the occasional laugh out of guys I didn’t think had a sense of humour. She must’ve been taking note of some of the ins and outs of motocross, having the balls to ask some interesting questions.
Take note, people: funny, intelligent woman with the guts and looks to match. That confidence is heartbreak material. They’re practically drooling over her. It’s almost pathetic. If they thought they had half a chance, they’d be down on their knees in a millisecond begging for a shot.
Boys, it ain’t gonna happen. Every delectable inch of her is mine, including her heart.
Talking with some of the support crew, Jones edges his way into the conversation, standing a little close to Eevie for my liking. He puffs out his chest, and hooks his thumbs through the front loops of his jeans. Blonde hair and a baby face, he’s a pretty boy. A mummy’s boy. From the way he carries on, he probably got everything he ever wanted as a kid, and had all the latest gear. Mum could barely afford to buy my jerseys, and when she did, I wore them until I outgrew them. I had no choice but to make them last. Last round Jones threw a tantrum like a three year old over something stupid. He got what he wanted, though. Disgusting. Not that I give a shit where he’s come from; at least I know I don’t carry on like a fucking twit.
My eyes are on Jones, and he knows it. Damn it, if he doesn’t like pushing my buttons, and having Eevie here he’s gonna do anything he can to push. If he weren’t on my team I’d barely give him the time of day. He’d be half an alright bloke if he wasn’t so self-absorbed.
He acts like he’s engrossed in what Eevie’s talking about, but his eyes travel down her chest, and even lower, as if he’s trying to rip her clothes off purely with the power of his mind. It heats my blood more than it should.
“When you’re ready for a real man, Eevie, come knockin’ on my door,” Jones says. His eyes dart in my direction before resting back on Eevie’s tits. Fucking douchebag.
Eevie frowns, and purses her glossy lips. “Sorry, I don’t understand. If I’m ready for areal man, why would I knock on your door? Wouldn’t I just go home?” She bats those long lashes. That’s my girl.
Everybody erupts into a fit of laughter, me louder than most. Jones shakes his head, and playfully punches me in the arm. “You’re killin’ me, Aidan. You win today, and I hate you for it, and now your woman’s gonna break my heart,” he says, faking a southern American accent. He clutches his chest as if wounded, and winks at Eevie.
I take a long swig of my beer. “Life’s a bitch, Jones.” Now fuck off.

The moment I met Davide Valenti, I wanted him.


He was alluring in the kind of way that makes good girls like me want to break all the rules.



So I did. I broke my rules for him, and in turn, he gave me what I craved.



Hearts and Flowers.



Yet I wanted more. I wanted to know him, claim him the same way he had claimed me. But you can't claim that which doesn't exist. A mirage. A man who showed me one face while showing the world another. A complicated man. A dangerous man.



Now I'm caught up in his world. Trapped under all that is dark and dangerous. From hearts and flowers to guns and knives.



I want out. But I fear it's too late.

Sent on a rescue mission, Finn Mac Chaluim is prepared to do his duty, hand over the lass and return home. 

But fate has other ideas. 

In the midst of a Norse invasion, Catriona barely escapes with her life. Masquerading as her sister, she finds herself in the hands of Finn who intends to hand her over to her sister’s betrothed, Laird Gillean. In the interests of bringing peace to her home, Catriona is determined to continue the ruse—even if it means going along with the marriage and denying her growing attraction to a man who keeps his hurts hidden behind a quick grin. 

If the green faery, Tèile, has anything to do with it, Catriona and Finn will come together—but only at the right time. Thanks to her last attempt at matchmaking, many paths were changed and now it’s up to her to put it right. Can she help Finn— who learned the hard way that sharing your life with someone only leads to heartache—get past his doubts? And will the battle-scarred Catriona even accept him into her heart? When Laird Gillean’s attentions toward Catriona become dangerous, both Finn and Tèile will find they have an uphill battle on their hands.

EXCERPT


He swung his gaze around, grateful the night had not yet swallowed them. A flash of green a few feet in front of him caught his eye. Hair swirling about her, gown waving like seaweed in the wash, she floated on the surface—knocked senseless. “Damnation!” With several strong strides, he caught up with her. The tide drew her away but it was not strong enough to defeat him. The sea now up to his hips, he dragged Katelyn into his arms. By God, her gown weighed her down. Even for a man of his strength, he felt as though he were carrying a heavy sack of grain rather than a sylph of a woman.Wading to the boat, he hefted her out of the water and passed her to Logan. The man shook his head. “Sorry, Finn. We were concentrating on not getting tossed about in the wash. ‘Tisnae easy holding such a small vessel steady.”“Aye, have no fear. ‘Twas my fault. The lass has clearly had a shock and I should have been watching her more closely.”Logan laid her in the bow while Finn clambered in. He knelt by the lass and glanced up at Logan.“She must have taken a hit to the head.”“Aye, likely against the boat. Must have hit hard to render her senseless.”Finn nodded. “Let us get on our way. We can do no good for her here.”“Aye,” Logan agreed and backed away to help row the boat from the shoreline.Leaning over her, Finn studied the gash on her forehead with a grimace. Poor lass. She’d have a mighty fine headache when she awoke. The steady rise and fall of her breasts against the soaked green wool assured him no permanent damage had been done.“Ye’ll have to get her out of those wet garments,” Logan called out behind him.Finn clenched his teeth. “Aye, thank ye, Logan. I’m aware o’ that.”He ran his gaze over her. Damn his luck. He’d undressed many a fine woman but none had ever been out cold and an unwilling partner. No doubt the lady would be deeply ashamed he’d done as much. But he could hardly leave her to die from exposure. If anything, his sister would have his head.Fingers tentatively prying at the front of her bodice, he forced his gaze onto the wood just behind her head. But the wet fabric proved too hard to tug apart so he pressed his hands to her back and lifted her lifeless form. Icy skin and sumptuous curves flattened briefly to his chest as he fumbled with the ties at the back of her gown. By God, when had he ever blundered like a whelp when undressing a woman? But he had to admit, though he’d had little time to admire her and the swelling on her face did not reveal her features properly, the flash of creamy skin was tempting enough. In other circumstances—and had she been anyone other than a lady in distress—he’d have enjoyed such a sight.He had her face pressed into his neck as he pulled her gown from her. Soft skin under his fingertips forced his breath to stilt. Only the grunts of men rowing reminded him he was meant to be helping the lass and not enjoying the moment. Katelyn’s chemise and gown came away in one go and he peered behind him, narrowing his eyes at the men. “Keep yer eyes away,” he warned, “or I’ll be having yer heads.”
Our Review
Another winner by Samantha...
This was an enjoyable read light and easy reading. I always love reading highlander romances and anytime I can get my hands on one of them to read I am ecstatic!

I love reading Samantha's romance's as they are always so sweet.This was a page turner from beginning to end.Just a fun read that brought you some smiles from time to time.Love being along the ride of a couple slowly falling in love with neither looking or even expecting it.As always they are always those that plot to become between you but, you just have to believe that your love will overcome the obstacles in your way.

I always pick a favorite character to rave about and mine would have to be Finn.What a sweet an love-able guy you could not help falling for him yourself.The care he took with taking care of Catriona was endearing and so sweet.Finn was just a overall loving person who cared fiercely for is family and those that he is charged with to protect.Loving on one hand and deadly when he needed to be.Finn carried around some demons himself that he needed to let go and by loving Catriona he started healing even though he was never realizing it himself. My heart broke for him as he loved someone he thought he had no future with and had to let go no matter what, he had to do the honorable thing.She belonged to another....So sad as he never planned to let another close enough to him to love again.I loved Finn's interaction's with his sister.I loved the loving relationship he had with his sister.I love there interaction's he always had with Catriona to he always gave willingly never expecting something in return.He wore his heart on his sleeve without even realizing it. I was rooting for him and Catriona they made a wonderful couple they were both perfect for one another .With the help of fate and a Fae called Teile there  may be a happy ending in this couple's future.

Catriona was another loving soul.Even though she lived in a household with no love from her father of twin sister she turned out to be sweet ,sincere, feisty and bold.I loved how she took charge of her future.Willing to make the greatest sacrifices a women can make for her clans people without no thought of he own happiness.How can you not admire someone like that?Loved watching her fall for Finn.How could she not fall for this hunky loving Highlander?Catriona was a brave lass taking what she could in the moment knowing she would have to some day give up what made her happy.My heart broke for her loss she must endure.Catriona really surprised me though she was tougher than I thought she was.This was one bold and feisty lass who was determined to change her own fate.

This was just a cute and sweet romance that brought you some smiles from time to time.The story had amazing and love-able and like-able characters overall.The plot had a hint of  mystery and suspense as there was an interfering Fae there to be sure to bring this couple into each others path.A match making Fae who would have thought ?Really loved it a looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Be sure to check out some of Samantha's other titles what I have read of her books they have all been amazing reads...
