    Padruig and Catriona have been married for 4 months, but after a poor experience on their wedding night Cat has made it clear that he is no longer welcome in her bed. She wants a husband, a real marriage, and even love. The only way she can get him alone and possibly be intimate again, is to have his brothers kidnap him and take him to an abandoned cottage where Cat is waiting. A second chance to get it right. Good read!!

    My kind of highland tale. Very quick and easy to read but very enjoyable. I bought it cheaply as an ebook from Amazon but I have since read that it was originally published as part of the "Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance" which I have recently ordered from Book Depository.

    What a wonderful little story! It's neatly self-contained, gives just enough detail to be in context and leaves you feeling happy. This is my idea of the perfect quickie story!

    A fairly ridiculous premise with an estranged wife kidnapping her husband to make their marriage work, this would have benefited from a few more pages. The resolution between the leads was too quick for this to be particularly satisfying. Plus the hero’s name - it made me think of a Harry Potter owl. Read only if on discount - the premise may tickle your fancy but not worth the money of more than a dollar.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A VERY short and easy read. Too short really. It starts out 4 months after a disastrous wedding night between Catriona and Padruig. Unfortunately we're not given any detail, just that the morning after, Catriona tossed him out and told him never to come back. So months later, she's tired of being humiliated by him having a mistress in the same castle and she wishes for love. But how to get him back without either of them losing face? Kidnap him of course. Then all she has to do is seduce him. In A VERY short and easy read. Too short really. It starts out 4 months after a disastrous wedding night between Catriona and Padruig. Unfortunately we're not given any detail, just that the morning after, Catriona tossed him out and told him never to come back. So months later, she's tired of being humiliated by him having a mistress in the same castle and she wishes for love. But how to get him back without either of them losing face? Kidnap him of course. Then all she has to do is seduce him. Interesting in theory, not really all that interesting here. (view spoiler)[ With the help of his brothers, she kidnaps him and he's angry. She claims she wants a husband. He thinks she means to kill him and marry another or that she wants to dissolve the marriage. A day later, she finally clarifies that she wants him to give up his mistress and take her back. At this point it's revealed that he was angry on their wedding night and was basically a clod with her. And all this time I'd been thinking it was her fault. So they go to bed, he's more gentle and they find bliss in the marriage bed. No mention of love, no epilogue...just the promise of a very satisfying sex life. Bit of a let down that. (hide spoiler)]

    So good but wished it was a bit longer Even though this was a short story I really enjoyed it. There is a sort of mystery revolving around the two characters that make you wonder what happened on their wedding night. However like most historical romances revolving around warring clans you kind of get the gist of what went wrong. I do wish it was a bit longer (or maybe a whole novel lol).I would have lifesaving more detail of where it took place and not just the name of the castle. I do recommend t So good but wished it was a bit longer Even though this was a short story I really enjoyed it.

    Cute , sweet , romantic highlander romance , I came across this novella as one of my free ebook I was able to download from my kobo . Great story, great plot , but I wish that this short story was turned into a novel instead ..... other than being disappointing with the shortness of the story it was a great read..

    I really liked this short novella and I liked how the herione kidnapped her husband. This has a great plot and in my opinion could have definitely been a full length novel. I will have to check into this author's other scottish historical romance novels.

    I really enjoyed the way the writer delivered the story! It was a short sample, but I'd like very much to read more of her. The plot was interesting and at some points captivating! The heroine, Cat, is a brave young woman, with a lot of imagination!

    I'm not a big short story fan, but this one is really fun. How do you get your husband's attention when he seems to be so focused on his leman? In this case drastic measures might be in order, afterall he's a highland Laird.

    Typical of all the Highlander books, For anyone who liked the taste of novella and wants lots more look to the Outlander series and really step back in time...
