Highland Hearts #2.5
Will Wyatt has always played the part of pirate, but now he’s a fish out of water in the Highlands of Scotland. With a bounty on his head, he’s laying low by helping his sister and a troop of abandoned children journey to a new home. He didn’t count on a spunky Highland lass stealing his breath after he steals a kiss.
Jonet Montgomery has longed for a chivalrous knight her whole young life. Instead she found herself wed to a cheating scoundrel and left a widow. Giving up on love, Jonet turned to helping the orphaned children of her clan, but when a lusty, silver-tongued rogue opens a crack in Jonet’s routine life, she’s tempted by his offer to taste adventure of the most pleasurable kind.
Will’s heart of gold shines through despite his infamous past, making Jonet risk her reputation once again. But can she possibly be enough woman to keep this sexy pirate from straying? With her past embarrassment haunting her, she risks more than just her reputation this time. She risks her heart.
If you looked up charming flirt, you would probably find a description of Will Wyatt, pirate, cook, rescuer of children and expert bongo player. And lest I forget, unapologetically a grand connoisseur of female charms. Sound scrumptious? Oh, honey! That's just the tip of the iceberg. The only thing keeping him from being a perfect ten on the hero scale is the goatee. Not my thing, but some may find this a bonus. I could probably spend 500 words or so on just how truly wonderful Will is, but *sigh* there were other aspects to the story that had exemplary merit.
Jonet was strong, fun, and compassionate. Dealing with issues resulting from a disastrous first marriage, she has not let it ruin her life, and is VERY open to possibilities. Not one complaint in the heroine department! (I know, right? Unheard of!) The story was lighthearted, sexy but still contained an element of danger. There are cute orphans, jealous would be lovers, magic and ooooooh..... the PLAGUE!!
