MacLean´s Passion, (Highland Pride #2) by Sharon Cullen. ARC Review.

Perfect for fans of Maya Banks and Monica McCarty, Sharon Cullen’s Highland Pride series continues as Scotland’s most reckless smuggler meets his match in a beautiful spitfire who arouses a renewed sense of duty, camaraderie, and passion.

Colin MacLean has always felt like a black sheep—especially after his brothers are slain before his eyes in the Battle of Culloden. A smuggler by trade, Colin makes for an embarrassing chieftain. He can’t even save his friends from their British pursuers without getting himself captured. But before he is martyred by the hangman’s noose, Colin escapes with his cellmate, a brave lad he’s come to admire. It’s only in the depths of the Highlands that Colin discovers the lad is a lass—and a bonnie one at that.

Raised by her older brothers, Maggie Sinclair can drink a pint in no time flat and wield a dagger with the best of ’em. Still, men have always excluded her and women have always shunned her. Colin makes her feel different. His wild spirit and rugged good looks have Maggie reconsidering her less than ladylike ways. For the first time, she’s tempted to put on a gown, just to see how Colin would react. She can only imagine what might happen next: a kiss . . . a touch . . . and perhaps enough sultry heat to melt a cold Highland night.

Colin MacLean is waiting to die. If he is not hanged then the sickness he has will surely kill him off. He is a prisoner of the English and they have been torturing him endlessly.  When someone offers to help him escape he suspects a trap, but needs to take the chance. The quiet young lad he has been sharing a cell with must come with him.
Maggie Sinclair has been a prisoner since she was caught fighting at Culloden  . She is just thankful no one has discovered her sex yet.
Our hero is suffering from a total lack of self confidence. He lost his much worthier elder brothers in the battle. He is not fit to take over the clan. Our heroine has trained and fought like a lad all her life . Now her brother expects her to suddenly turn into a lady and marry. That's not going to happen.
A harrowing journey through the highlands,  with enemies behind and an uncertain future ahead. A story that will make you laugh, cry and cheer for our wonderful heroine.  It is the second in a series but you can read it on it's own. I loved it.

After earning a degree in journalism from Ohio University Sharon found that the stories inside her head were more interesting than what was going on in the world around her. Yet, it wasn't until years later that she decided to pursue her secret dream of writing a romance novel. Since then she's been published in romantic suspense, paranormal romance and contemporary romance. The Notorious Lady Anne is her first historical romance.

Sharon's other job descriptions include chauffer, laundress, cook and mediator to her three very busy kids, her husband and two dogs. She lives in southwest Ohio with her brood although her dream is to someday retire to St. Maarten and live on the beach. 

If you'd like to find out more about Sharon and her books, you can visit her at her blog or her website. She's addicted 
to social networking so you can find her on Facebook and Twitter. Friend her! Like her! Follow her! She'd love to hang out with you and talk about her passion--books.
