If You Dare (MacCarrick Brothers #1)  by Kresley Cole14386

Review: I was so happy when I found this book at a Half Priced book store, I could not wait to start reading it. But it seems that not all of Kresley Cole’s books are to be good books. All of this was such a let down because I normally love her writing, no matter what it is she is writing about.

If You Dare, had a drawn out plot that got jumbled at a lot of turns in the story, therefore loosing my interest and focus. The characters were also lackluster and irritating.

Even though I love just about anything coming from Cole, I think I’ll hold off on reading anymore of this series and just stick to the ones I’m reading of hers now.

Summary: Kresley Cole introduces a thrilling new romance trilogy featuring fierce Scottish brothers with dangerous lives, dark desires, and a deadly curse.

Can he exact revenge?

High in the Pyrenees, a band of mercenaries led by Courtland MacCarrick wages war for General Reynaldo Pascal. When Court turns on the evil general, Pascal orders him killed, but Court narrowly escapes and exacts revenge by kidnapping Pascal’s exquisite Castilian fiancée.

Can she deny her passions?

Lady Annalía Tristán Llorente despises her towering, barbaric captor almost as much as she does Pascal. Her inexplicable attraction to the Highlander only fuels her fury. But nothing will stop her from returning to Pascal—for if she doesn’t wed him, she signs her brother’s death warrant, as well as her own.

Can there be love between them?

From the moment Court discovers that Anna’s prim façade masks a fiery, brave lass, his heart’s ensnared, and he dares to defy the curse that has shadowed his life—to walk with death or walk alone. But Pascal vows that he’ll hunt the two, never stopping until he’s destroyed them both.
