The Sins of the Sire (Dark Highland Passions #1). Emily Royal. Tirgearr Publishing. March 2019; Kindle mobi, 283 pp.; ASIN: B07N974NW5.
Elyssa De Montford is married to a violent beast! He delights in fulfilling his lust and his enjoyment of hurting women. His goal is to obey the rule of Longshanks or Edward I, to conquer the attacking Highlanders who are headed by William Wallace. Elyssa meanwhile regrets and relishes the memory of freeing her family’s enemy, Tavish MacLean. Though enemy, she could not ignore the physique and look that elicited lust that demanded to be satisfied!
Now Tavish MacLean has been captured again! He agonizes on two memories, one that of his sister, Flora, who was raped and murdered by a Lord. Tavish has promised revenge on that act which figuratively destroyed his family. His other memory is of his enemy he describes as “an enemy on the field; my captor; torturer; the man who delivered me from death; my comrade in battle and finally my brother.” Tavis was not destroyed by the latter as his captor used Tavish in battles “to the death” and made money from these conquests.
Later in the tale, Tavish will capture Elyssa. His task is to punish her family by impregnating her so that her family will be enraged by her carrying a Scottish bastard. However, the passion between them literally and figuratively becomes unbearable.
No spoilers here but suffice to say that this is a story full of phenomenal passion and violence. It seems these elements are the reason for being for all the characters. Despite their best planning secrets will unfold that seem to rule the day but only a hero like Tavish can meet with determination and well-developed skills. He’s every woman’s dream of Highlander lust!
Enjoy, fans of true romance fiction! Emily Royal knows how to present and pace the sensual tension that cyclically flows!
