Review of The Highlander’s Forbidden Bride (Kilts & Kisses #5) by Madison Faye

The Highlander’s Forbidden Bride (Kilts & Kisses #5) by Madison Faye

Review: I was really excited to read this installment, and I was currently reading Vikings Claim (book 4) when I dropped everything to crack this book open. And yes, I am reading these all out of order. Anyway, this was a bit of a let down in a lot of the common departments. It was short for Madison Faye’s standards, there was also a lot less sex, yes there was foreplay and sizzle but  the actual deed, not so much. I would not normally bring this up in a review but the point of this book is romance/sex (steamy-ness). Agian, normally I don’t need sex to be in the book, but when there is very little plot and romance plot (the deeper connection and such). Which once again, is normally insta love and has a lot of sex in the book to “make up” for lack of plot.

Summary: Being arranged to marry a Highlander lord is hardly uncommon.
But when he happens to be gorgeous, powerful, dominant, and your best friend’s dad?
Well, that’s another story…

Lachlan McDougall is a lot of things: powerful, ruggedly handsome Highlander Lord, fierce ex-warrior, my soon-to-be-husband…

…And my best friend’s dad.

I grew up in their castle, under his eye. But secretly, I’ve wanted him since before I even knew what the word meant. On the surface, I’m marrying him for political reasons: to stop a war and save his lands.

On the inside, though, binding myself to Lachlan McDougall is a fantasy I’ve dreamt a thousand times.

I know this is wrong, and a sin. But once I lose myself in those dark, piercing eyes, and once I feel his big, powerful hands on me, and once I taste those beautiful lips?

…Well, it turns out, I might not be the only one with a forbidden little secret.

In two days, I’ll be married to a man who I’ve married a hundred times, in my head. The man who’s taken me to bed ten times that number in my dreams.

Twice my age, a scandal waiting to happen, and my best friend’s father.

…I’m in so much trouble.

All the tropes, all the growly af alpha goodness, all the over-the-top fun, and of course, WILDLY historically inaccurate.Warning: not responsible for lost or ripped bodices. Reader beware.

As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.
