Review: Highland Hellcat by Mary Wine

He wants a wife he can control...

Connor Lindsey is a Highland laird, but his clan's loyalty is hard won and he takes nothing for granted. He'll do whatever it takes to find a virtuous wife, even if he has to kidnap her...
She has a spirit that can't be tamed...

Brina Chattan has always defied convention. She sees no reason to be docile now that she's been captured by a powerful laird and taken to his storm-tossed castle in the Highlands, far from her home.

When a rival laird's interference nearly tears them apart, Connor discovers that a woman with a wild streak suits him much better than he'd ever imagined... description taken from here.

I've read a few Wines before, and this one surpasses the last one by quite a bit.  And, boy am I glad.  The first Mary Wine I ever read, I completely loved it, the next one I thought 'what happened?' and, thankfully, this one took after the first book.  Highland Hellcat is about a spirited woman who is to become a nun, but along the way gets kidnapped by a Highland laird. 

I enjoyed Brina's spirit, her bite and enthusiasm.  I found it refreshing in a way that other 'spirited' heroins don't come across in many of today's Historical Romances.  I found the writing to be clever, the plot interesting and well wrote, and the characters nicely formed as well. 

Overall, the book was pretty good, and if you like Historical Romances, chances are, you will probably enjoy it too.  : )
