Review: In Bed With A Highlander by Maya Banks

In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy #1)
by Maya Banks

Maya Banks' beguiling new trilogy features three unforgettable brothers risking everything to save their clan and their legacy—and to surrender their hearts to love.

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin's strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that means more than revenge and land.

Maya Banks In Bed With A Highlander has it all, right from the delicious cover I could stare at all day, interesting plot to amazing characters I adored.

I have a huge girl crush on Mairin. Adored her love and devotion towards Ewan, his clan and mostly towards his son Crispen. Maya Banks is well known for weaving family and secondary characters in her novels. She does it so well that they add so much to her stories, never take away from hero/heroine. They all play a big part in her novels.  I loved the scenes with Mairin and Crispen such sweet moments. She was a good roll model for him. When it came to Ewan and his clan she was a feisty little thing that had me giggling. Poor Ewan has his hands full with her. She defies him so much but deep inside he truly enjoys it.

Ewan is a strong  leader of his clan. He carries so much on his shoulder from trying to protect his clan, get them ready for battle with his enemies who have taken so much away from him. Layers were nicely peeled away with his character. Little by little he is able to learn to love again. Love a delicious Alpha Male highlander.

I want more of Maya Banks sexy highlander McCabe brothers.

  1. awesome review!!! I am so glad you loved this one. Her historical romances are in my opinion, her best works. There is something about them you cant help but be drawn to. Makes me crave a alpha sexy highlander of my own. and plus the covers are just gorgeous.

    1. I am a huge fan of Maya Banks. Love that she can write Erotic, Romanic Suspense and Historical. I admire that she keeps her Historical and Romanic Suspense heat level from hot to steamy. Fell in love with her highlanders in The Montgomerys and Armstrongs series.

  2. I didn't even know she wrote historicals ! And it's probably a lot more fun that in bed with Madonna ;) Great review !

    1. If love sexy Alpha Highlanders she is for me the best.
