HEART TAMER

She’s the last person he expects–or wants– to see again. But this time, can he resist?

Alec MacLeod is shocked to find Kate Hayes at his sister’s wedding, but damn he’s missed her. His ex-wife’s unforeseen arrival in Scotland makes him suspect she’s up to something.

There was a reason they parted the first time and Alec is determined not to get pulled in, but seeing her again ignites a desire so intense, he’s tempted.

Kate wants something so desperately, she’s willing to swallow her pride and plead with her formidable ex-husband for help. With time running out, she must convince the dominant Highlander to agree with her unusual request.

They need each other more than they know, but can they put past hurt behind them, even if it could change everything in their world as they know it?

In this fiery battle of love, whose heart will be tamed?

HEART HUNTER

Infamous UK celebrity playboy, Cameron “Heartbreak” Hunter is everything bridal fashion designer, Evangeline Parks knows she should avoid. However, when fate intervenes and the gorgeous whisky tycoon is her mystery date for her best friend Kate’s wedding in Scotland, Evie won’t relent to his charm. Smart enough to know that a man like Cameron only brings heartache and tears, she’s determined to avoid becoming another notch on his belt–no matter how incredibly attracted to him she is.

Cameron Hunter has never encountered a woman who dismisses him upon sight–until he meets Evie. The more the opinionated beauty tries to steer clear of him, the more desirable he finds her. But when Cameron’s hidden past is discovered, obstacles pile up as he sets out to win Evie and prove that he is far more than just tabloid fodder. Has the bad boy billionaire finally found the one to end the hunt for his heart?

My Thoughts:

This is a collection of two novellas which are related.  They tell the stories of two American women, Kate and Evie, who are business partners and friends, who find love in Scotland with two hunky kilt-wearing Scots, Alec and Cameron.  Their paths to love aren’t smooth, but they are definitely passionate.

Heart Tamer

Kate Hayes has kept in touch with her ex-husband’s sister, since their divorce nine years ago.  They have maintained their friendship, and Kate, a designer, has even gifted Eileen with an original wedding dress.  Kate has come to Scotland for the wedding, though Alec, her ex-husband isn’t aware of it.  Their divorce and parting was bitter, and they haven’t spoken since.  However, Kate, now has a special request to make of Alec.

Ten years ago, Kate and Alec fell madly in love and married quickly.  Both are headstrong, aggressive personalities, which lead to many fights, but their love and passion kept them together.  Then Alec’s younger brother died, and his whole focus became finding the people responsible and getting revenge.  This quest consumed him, and even Kate was unable to deter him.  When Kate couldn’t face his continual leaving and putting himself in danger, she gave him an ultimatum.  Unfortunately, her gamble didn’t pay off and their marriage ended.

Now they are both older and wiser.  They also instantly feel that electric attraction they’ve always had.  Fate seems to be offering a second chance for them, but can they make it work?  I felt this couple belonged together, and I really liked the way they didn’t hesitate to confess their feelings for each other right away.  I hated to see their starting to fall in the same routine that was their downfall before, but ultimately, they were able to hold it together, and build a future together, this time forever.

Heart Hunter

Evie Parker has only been living half a life since her beloved husband died seven years ago.  Now, perhaps she’s ready to live again.  Her friend Kate is getting married, and is sending a mystery man to pick Evie up.  Excited at the prospect, Evie opens the door to see Cameron Hunter, a notorious celebrity who is always in the tabloids.  Without even giving him a chance, Evie writes him off, deciding immediately that he’s not the man she needs.

Cameron is taken aback at being dismissed, and even more determined to capture Evie’s interest.  Before long, he succeeds, and has convinced Evie to spend two weeks in his company, just to have fun and enjoy Scotland.  Cameron is much more than the shallow playboy the scandal sheets make him out to be.  Soon he and Evie, begin a passionate affair, but can they overcome his family’s objections and maintain a love when they live an ocean apart?

Evie realizes that she’s falling in love, and with someone who only agreed to two weeks of fun.  I was happy to see her finally letting go of the past.  I like that she told Cameron her feelings, and I like that he didn’t panic, but stopped to consider his own life and feelings.

While both of these stories are short, light reads, they also deal with love that happens quickly and hits hard.  They show the importance of talking, as opposed to running away.  They also show that no matter how great the love, it won’t work unless you work at it.       Reviewed by Blue
