Publication Date: May 15, 2017
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Scandalous, Historical Romance
Cullen Duffie, a Highland warrior and charming rogue, is the new chief of Clan MacDonald. Determined to prove he’s not his father, Cullen works to secure his clan against the English. When a woman washes onto Islay’s shores, Cullen protects her from his uncles’ schemes.
Waking up not knowing who she is or where she comes from, Madeleine is at the mercy of the man who found her. Unable to speak from the swelling around her throat from a rope tether, she learns as much as she can about the new world around her and the powerful, sword-wielding Highlander who has sworn to protect her.
Through dreams and flashes of her past, Madeleine begins to rebuild her memories. But the more she recalls about the horror she escaped, the more she realizes the jeopardy she is bringing to Islay, Clan MacDonald and the Highlander who has captured her heart.
Isle of Islay, Highlands of Scotland
I love stories that intrigue me to the point where I am looking up more information on the time period because it is so fascinating. This is that kind of book.
I came into this story without having read the first in the series. Needless to say, it’s now on my list. I had no problems reading it as a stand-alone.
THE ROGUE OF ISLAY ISLE is an all around great read. It has action, adventure, intrigue, danger and romance. It has it all. Great secondary characters. Loved Cullen’s mother. Strongly disliked his uncles. (and some others) All the characters are wonderfully written, the plot is captivating and the sparks really fly between Cullen and Rose Madeleine. There is definitely some chemistry there. I was totally engrossed by the end of the first chapter.
