If you’re new to The McCabe series, start with book one. Â Each book can be read independently of the other, but you get a more in depth idea of each McCabe brother. Â Or more to the point, you’ll understand my love for Caelen and his headstrong wife Rionna.
You all know my love of dark and broody heros. Â Well, my friends, Caelen is everything dark and broody could be. Â Hard headed as he can be, his heart belongs solely to Rionna, whom he has stepped in to marry so his elder brother could marry another. Â Rionna is just as head strong as her husband, and she’s had about enough of the McCabe men passing her off among them. Â When Caelen marries her she finally has some closure, but whether or not their relationship will work out for the better is another matter altogether. Â She has trained as a warrior, and Caelen wants nothing of it. Â He prefers her acting and looking like a woman. Â Rionna makes an effort to please him, but it falls flat. Â Together they learn how to compromise, and in the process they end up falling head over heels for each other.
As with the other McCabe stories, Never Love a HighlanderÂ is a lovely romance with plenty of swoon worthy gushing. Â This one is probably my favorite if only because of how well Rionna and Caelen suit one another. Â I’m pretty sure I tore through this in a day. Â All in all, if you’re considering partaking in this series it’s definitely worth your while.
