X Marks The Scot by Victoria Roberts
He was a Highland rogue—
wicked with a bow and just as wicked with the ladies.
Declan MacGregor hadn't a care in the world beyond finding a soft bed and willing woman…until he had to escort Lady Liadain Campbell to the English court. The woman needles him at every turn, but he can’t just abandon her to that vipers’ nest without protection.
She never asked for a bodyguard…
Liadain wasn't thrilled to be left in the care of her clan’s arch-rival It was as if the man never had a lady tell him no before! And yet as whispers of treason swirl through the court and the threat of danger grows ever sharper, her bitter enemy soon becomes the only one she can trust…**
Every turn Declan is faced with the healer he has stayed at court to protect. Liadain just wants to go home, she doesn't want to be watched constantly and she certainly doesn't want a MacGregor for a bodyguard. These two fight each other at every turn. When Declan wins Campbell Castle and is ordered to wed Liadain, things change. He doesn't want a wife, but now he has one and he can't fight the attraction he has to her.
This was a great read, fast paced and I loved the love-hate relationship that these two had. It was also nice to see characters from the first of this series. I can't wait to read the third in this series!!
