Wicked Highland Wishes (Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts #2) by Julie Johnstone. + ARC Review.



Desire tempted them. Honor forbade them. Love ensnared them.

Legendary warrior Lachlan MacLeod has never encountered anything or anyone he could not conquer. But when his younger brother confesses his love for Bridgette MacLean—the only woman Lachlan has ever wanted—Lachlan turns away from the beautiful Scottish lass, vowing to be no more than her friend. Yet his need for Bridgette enslaves him and may well prove to be the one thing he cannot defeat.

Fiercely independent Bridgette longs to be treated as an equal to the men. She always imagined great battles in her future, not great love. Then Lachlan saw her as no one ever had and captured her heart, awakening new cravings inside her without realizing it. But when Lachlan’s younger brother suffers a grave injury while saving her life, she feels unable to deny his plea for her heart. However, it is impossible to give what belongs to another…

Torn between their own desire and their loyalties, Bridgette and Lachlan must find the courage to grasp the passion awaiting them and face the pain their choice will cause. Yet even as they confront their future and love finally seems within their grasp, a fight for the Scottish throne divides the Highland clans and Bridgette becomes a pawn in a political game that threatens to tear her and Lachlan apart forever.
 


Bridgette MacLean is a very independent young woman,  determined to prove she is equal to any man.  In the highlands of Scotland in 1354 that is not an idea the men are agreeable with.  King David's reign is shaky,  with some of his nobles acting against him.  A woman is often used as a pawn to secure alliances. 
Lachlan MacLeod is brother to a powerful Laird and knows that he must put the needs of the clan above any personal wishes.  When his King orders him to get information by any means necessary , he must obey. 
This is a wonderful highland adventure.  Fate seems to be against our heroine.  She puts the feelings of others before her own wishes.  Our hero is torn between his desire and loyalty to his family.  A very emotional choice in a dangerous time.  An intriguing story that will keep you reading well last bed time.  Very hard to put down. 
I loved it.
