"highly recommended paranormal historical duet"

Highlander cousins Heming MacNachton and Tearlach MacAdie are mixed-blood (born of Clan and Outsider parents) which has given them mixed abilities as well as limitations. They are drugged and captured in a Northern English pub while searching out hunters who consider them soulless, blood-sucking demons and intend to use them to learn how to eradicate their clans. Taken to separate castles, they meet the extraordinary women who are destined to save their lives and share their destiny.

Although summarized in 3 short sentences to avoid spoilers (see book blurbs for details), these stories contain so much more that you need to experience. You must read the book as you will wish to share the thrill of the escape and adventures of Hemming with Brona Kerr ("Blood Feud") and Tearlach with Lady Lucy Blytheswood ("The Capture").

It is my impression that each book has improved their foundation of working together as well as their ability to make the combination of paranormal and historical feel real. For those who have read the previous 2 HIGHLANDER Duets, you know that these authors do an excellent job in combining Historical romance and paranormal elements with their own unique flair to blend their stories. I highly recommended this book and the series to all who enjoy paranormal romances as well as those who like vampire romance not on the side!

Although written to stand alone, I know once you've read the book you will wish to read the others [THE ETERNAL HIGHLANDER and MY IMMORTAL HIGHLANDER] to meet other MacNachton and MacAdie clan members. These authors and their duets are on my "auto- buy" list as they have never disappointed for reading enjoyment and I do not wish to miss their 'worlds' or their wit even in unrelated titles.

Bestselling authors Hannah Howell and Lynsay Sands team up once again to bring readers the stories of two vampire cousins and the women who love them.

Bound by the same cursed blood and now the same quest, cousins Heming MacNachton and Tearlach MacAdie hunt the enemies determined to destroy them and their clans. Never did they imagine that during their pursuit they would be drugged, separated and taken captive, one to the Scottish borderlands and one to the dreary depths of Northern England. Caged and left to die, their only hope lies with two brave women….

Drawn to the mysterious prisoners, Brona Kerr and Lady Lucy Blytheswood see in the handsome highlanders a chance to escape cruelty at the hands of the brutish men to whom they’ve been promised. Across perilous terrain, Brona and Lucy fight for their lives—and for an unexpected and eternal passion with the men who have shown them the wildly exciting pleasures of love.
