Book Musings: My Review of Highland Obsession by Dawn Halliday

Highland Obsession Highland Obsession by Dawn Halliday

Paperback: 320 pages

Publisher: NAL Trade (August 4, 2009)
Description: Paperback, eBook
Characters:  Alan, Sorcha, Cam

The Blurb:  In the Scottish Highlands, two warriors are about to clash over a woman of passion...


They were the unlikeliest of friends debauching their way through London: The Earl of Camdonn, a nobleman of vast wealth and power, and Scottish laird Alan MacDonald, a respected Jacobite with ambitions of his own.

But their friendship is destroyed when Alan marries the beautiful Sorcha Stewart-only to witness Cam kidnap her from their bedroom. Then Alan learns the truth: his bride was not an innocent. She took a lover before him-his friend-who taught her the ways of pleasure.

Now, Alan will do anything to get his wife back. Cam fights to redeem his honor, even as he refuses to give up his desire. Torn between love and duty, Sorcha must watch as the two men she desires go to war over her. And when the battle lines are drawn, all three lovers are lured into a triangle of forbidden passions...

My Thoughts:  My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Oh, I do love my highlanders! Highlanders were everywhere when I was reading just romance, but when I started venturing into erotica I’ve had a hard time finding them. So when I came across this one I was pretty excited. Unfortunately, I didn’t end up liking it as much as I thought I would.

I really felt for Alan and Sorcha, betrayed as they were by Cam. I was so wanting them to work things out and have their HEA, I loved both of them and really felt their pain, but I was really disappointed in Alan and his set up/handling of the ménage with Cam. That wasn’t cool.  It pretty much ruined Alan for me.

And Cam. Cam was just spoiled. I can stand a guy who throws a temper tantrum. He felt like a child stomping his feet to get what he wants. I mean really guy…man up a little. I just could not relate to him.

The book was good, it was well written, well developed, but this one just didn’t do it for me.
