Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past. She wants nothing to do with the sensual Scottish warrior that the king has ordered her to marry because the rogue could never be a faithful husband, but she has little choice in the matter. Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she’s in dire need of his protection.
Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist him—Angelique. Can he break through her icy façade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past not only cost them their future together, but their very lives?

So glad to see Lachlan meet his match in Angelique. In the first book Lachlan has found out about a plot against one of the Kings favorites and is offered a title and to be wed to Angelique her fathers heiress. Angelique is not given much choice so she is asked to choose between her cousin, a man old enough to be her grandfather or Lachlan she of course chooses Lachlan. He is such a flirt and is known for being a great ladies man which causes his wife to question if he might have a disease when she asks him to prove his health. I could not help but laugh at poor Lachlan. Angelique was a great match for him but she held a secret that explained why she was afraid of intimacy with Lachlan. They had problems with her clan and were constantly on the look out for her cousin who wanted the castle and the clan for himself. What a great love story.
I read this one right after reading My Fierce Highlander. (which I loved) I was so disappointed in this. I like the hero well enough but the heroine Angelique I just couldn't take. She never gave him the benefit of the doubt-always thinking and expecting the worst of him. It just got old after awhile. Also, it seemed for quite a bit of the book they were either having sex or she was mad at him. Did not enjoy this and it was so different from the first book that I loved.
This story was just so gosh darned fun! I loved Lachlan in the previous "episode"...his mischievious smile and womanizing. He loves ALL women and simply feels they're put on earth just for him to enjoy. He's a loveable rascal in the first sense of the word.
After saving the life of King James' favorite Courtier, Lachlan MacGrath is rewarded with Knighthood, the Title of Earl, Estates complete with a Chieftan (of Draughon Castle), AND a Bride! But he's ready for a change in his life - - a new life of sorts...a whole new direction. He needs a "sense of purpose" and he feels a need to settle down; so he welcomes marriage. His Betrothed is more of a wasp than a butterfly, but Lachlan welcomes the challenge of subduing his new Bride, and seducing her.
Lady Angelique Drummagan, Countess of Draughon is the only child and heir of her deceased parents. She wants a weak husband...one she can control. Someone who will allow her to run her own Estates and leave her...
