Book Love (65) Pride of Lions

It was a boastful wager, a bold flirtation meant to win a proposal from the most eligible officer in His Majesty’s Royal Dragoons. How was the spoiled and pampered Catherine Augustine Ashbrooke to know the handsome stranger with the brooding, midnight eyes would see through her plot and make her the pawn in a dangerous game of his own?

Alexander Cameron may have won the highborn English beauty in a duel, but not even the lure of long-forgotten desires could keep him from his meeting with destiny. He had no choice but to carry his reluctant bride off to the Highlands, to a world of ancient blood feuds and a brewing rebellion–a world where fiery passion and breathtaking courage would prove that even legendary warriors could lose their hearts

Why Pride of Lions?

Pride of Lions is not your average day historical romance, in fact out of all the historical romance novels I have read (and there are quite a bit, and it is not for everyone. This has real substance, it has no cheesiness at all, its tough and real and not for the lighthearted fans. Its emotionally driven and makes the culture and history of Scotland, come alive in a very realistic way. I love this book so much, because this author doesn’t sugar coat anything and she does her research very well.
