June 25, 2013
Historical Romance

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Prized for his unbeatable tracking skills, Ewen “Hunter” Lamont accepts a dangerous assignment: locate a missing undercover courier. But this is no ordinary target. Ewen has met his prey before as “Sister Genna,” a fiery, forbidden woman forever etched in his memory after one stolen, sinful kiss. Now that he knows her real identity, he’s more determined than ever to keep her safe. But without the protection of the veil between them, fighting the allure of the beautiful lass may be the toughest battle this extraordinary warrior has ever faced.

I guess my fondness for the color blue
has gotten me hooked
on a book again....
Ha!  That's not all I love about this cover!
In the interests of aesthetic enjoyment,
I feel I should indulge in 'a shirtless hero cover'
now and then.
However, I also happen to love this plot,
because I do have a soft spot for Scottish men...
in historical romance novels, of course!
And I haven't read a really good
historical romance
for a while now, so I'm looking forward
to starting this one,
if I can get signed up for the tour,
