Fiona MacLean is in need to marry Black Jack Kincaid and with not a moment to spare. It did not help that the man was mostly unconscious but the safety of her family was in dismay. Fiona thought it would be easy as they had shared a passion years ago but she finds that he is just the same. Fiona will make it her mission to teach her husband that he can’t control her but danger will come into play as her life will soon be threatened.
Black Jack Kincaid had no desire to be married. Although the choice in wives Jack was not altogether displeased as Fiona still had that passion he knew many years ago. Jack soon found out that he had other things to worry him other than a wife who told him his old ways were done, he also had to worry about her brothers and someone who would want to harm his wife he is starting to fall for.
I am new to this author Karen Hawkins whom I stumbled upon raiding through the aisles of the library in the romance section. What got me was the cover of the book as it looked like it could be a book with humor. Reading How to Abduct a Highland Lord was quick, easy, sexy and altogether fun. There was humor laced throughout the book and some jealousy along with brother protection, which I loved. What I did not expect was a paranormal aspect where the curse for the MacLean’s tends toward the weather. The rain was comical especially as it was controlled by the emotions of the MacLean’s and when they were angry you did not want to be the source of the anger.
The byplay with the brothers and their sister was fun. I love it when authors give a big family a series as there is a lot to go with. I always think back to Julia Quinn’s series the Bridgertons. The main character of Black Jack was fantastic as the rogue and someone you fell for. Fiona was a riot as she did what she wanted but naive of what would happen especially when she came upon a competitor. I have to say I was not sure of the villain until the very end and a little surprised at the venom from this person but it made sense. After finding Karen Hawkins I know I will not be done with the author especially as I have several brothers to get through in the MacLean Curse series.
