Redonk Nutshell: Hasty marriage between two stubborn hot heads turns passionate

If you’re new to The McCabe series, start with book one.  Each book can be read independently of the other, but you get a more in depth idea of each McCabe brother.  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.  Well, my friends, Caelen is everything dark and broody could be.  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.  Rionna is just as head strong as her husband, and she’s had about enough of the McCabe men passing her off among them.  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.  She has trained as a warrior, and Caelen wants nothing of it.  He prefers her acting and looking like a woman.  Rionna makes an effort to please him, but it falls flat.  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 Highlander is a lovely romance with plenty of swoon worthy gushing.  This one is probably my favorite if only because of how well Rionna and Caelen suit one another.  I’m pretty sure I tore through this in a day.  All in all, if you’re considering partaking in this series it’s definitely worth your while.
