Bound to a Highlander by Kerri M. Patterson


Product Description

The surrender of a Highlander to his beautiful prisoner 

Bound by an inescapable oath, Gabhran McBray agrees to handfast the woman suspected of poisoning his brother. Yet, he stubbornly vows he will prove her guilt and make her pay. However, when green-eyes and red hair begin to haunt his every thought—when her innocence is proven—Gabhran must face the hard reality that he was wrong and an unsuspected traitor is to blame.  

Held captive by the man sworn to protect her  

With no chance of proving her innocence, Rosin McPherson risks escape. Too late does she realize she will never escape Gabhran. Not in the dead of night, nor aHighlandblizzard. He would find her, and he would claim her.  

Caught in a mangle of blackmail, betrayal, and feuding they fight to repel one another. Only when they unite do they understand what has happened for so long.




“Don’t try to evade me, lass. T’would not be wise,” he warned.

She tilted her chin silently, but a smug gleam lit her eyes and had him guessing she had hidden the blade for later use. Gabhran sighed. Any other time and with any other woman he might have enjoyed this, if all his strength had returned.

“Fine then. As you wish.”

She shrieked and started to dash, but in two giant strides he had her pinned against the wall, one hand holding both her wrists above her head as he slowly hiked her skirts with the other, one leisurely fistful at a time. His body pressed into hers. Their gazes locked, so close they were, and held as he splayed his fingers against her soft thigh and began running his hand up, slowly searching, until she panted a mangled gasp.

“Will you prefer to tell me where you’ve hidden the blade then?” he asked. When she still refused to cry mercy, “Come now, Rosin, or I might think you want me to search higher.” He faintly leaned his hips into her, gently rocking against her ever so slightlyunable to resist the primitive urge. Quickly he brushed aside the carnal sensation he’d stirred.

She glared, sparing no hostility. “‘Tis in my boot.”

Still, he held her stare, a mockery surely glittering back in his own eyes. He didn’t break their locked gaze as he slid down her body, letting her skirts fall back into place slowly as he went down. Gabhran skimmed his hands over her thighs as he kept the bunched gown level with his face until he rested on a knee before her. He held only the end of her garment to see inside her boot and took the knife, dropping her gown entirely.

Gabhran was minimally aware she’d had the sense to wrap the blade first, so she wouldn’t cut herself.

He laughed, a dark sultry sound, as he stood again.

He lifted her chin with a crooked finger, leaning closer. “Never fear, lassie. I brought extra bindings.”

  1. Bound to read in one sitting 4 Star Review

    This is a great highlander book that shows the strife women went through during the period. Love conquers all, but only after many periods of trial and error.

  2. Don't read at bedtime! :) 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2018

    I started this book an hour before bedtime, and wound up going to sleep much later than planned. Rosin and Gabhran's story was captivating. Although, the true villain is revealed early in the novel, it was interesting seeing the hero and heroine learn to trust each other. And in learning to trust each other, they were able to put the clues together. I was a bit disappointed that Rosin didn't put together the clues when the 3rd family member died.

    The sex was good, I loved Gabhran's battling with himself. Beyond finding the villain, there was a true battle of wills between them. Some of Gabhran's keeping her tied up felt a little he man, but it worked and wasn't through out the whole book.

    I really enjoyed this book and if you love highlanders I think you will too!

    Bound to a Highlander by Kerri M. Patterson

    Rosin McPherson did not want to go into an arranged marriage with the laird of her clan's enemy, but her family insisted it was the only way to save their clan from all of the fighting between the two. Rosen agrees to the union after her father was killed in a raid.

    When Rosen's husband is poisoned on their wedding night, Rosen is accused of his murder. To keep her safe until he finds out the truth behind the poisonings that were happening to different members of his clan, her husband's brother, Gabhran McBray agrees to be handfasted to Rosen. Rosen is locked away in a drafty cell for a time, but manages to escape to a cabin not far from the keep. Gabhran finds her there and the two of them spend some time alone together. Gabhran tries to keep his distance because he misses his wife, who died several years before, but he is weak and can't keep his hands off of Rosen.

    Once they return to the keep, they find out more people have been poisoned. Gabhran works on finding out who the culprit is while Rosen figures out how to clear herself from suspicion. In the mean time, they are falling in love and can't keep their hands off of each other.

    This was a very good book. I really hope the author does sequels because some of the other characters need their stories told as well. Highlander romance books are my favorite and this one does not disappoint. There was just the right amount of steam in the sex scenes. There were a few typos, but nothing took away from the story. I give this one a 4.8 out of 5 stars!

    This was a great read. There was a lot of distrust, but true love prevailed. Lots of intrigue and passion. A good highland read. Enjoy!

  6. Good Read 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2018

    Good read...reminiscent of the older romance novels! I read these books to escape, not read reality. The plot flowed well without too much hot and heavy.

  7. Loved this book but... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2018

    This book had all the right stuff with the dominant handsome alpha male, except the sex. I really would have liked to see some of that aggression lead to aggressive play. Every time he pinned her with her hands above, tied her up, or spanked her, I would have loved to see it followed by more erotica and less seething and tantrums. Otherwise it was well worth it with a good story.

  8. Great 4 Star Review

  9. A joy to read 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2018

    A really good Highland romance that drew me right in and kept me engrossed the whole way through. Great characters with lots of personality, Gabhran and Rosin were so much fun to read about! Gabhran was the ultimate sexy, alpha Highlander and Rosin was so feisty, never letting Gabhran get away with anything. I laughed out loud numerous times at their antics.

    There were many good secondary characters that would be wonderful in stories of their own, especially Hugh and Grimm. I hope Kerri Patterson has plans for sequels from this wonderful novel.

    I sure do love a good Highlander romance and this one kept me up way past my bedtime. It had an intriguing plot, wonderful characters and lots and lots of angst. I enjoyed the story so much that I couldn't put it down. Read it in just one sitting, got irritated at any distractions (just ask my old man), and hey, I didn't even mind the loss of sleep when I had to get up early the next morning.
    This story revolved around one of my favorite plot gimmicks - the warring clans making an alliance by marriage. You know they're going to be serious trust issues and they have to nurture the romantic relationship. But Gabhran and Rosin took it to an even higher level. This pair did not trust each other at all. In fact they hated each other at first and there were some scenes where I feared for Rosin's life. They had a lot of building to do before they repaired their relationship. The writer used a liberal dose of angst to garner my attention but I can tell you that it worked. Oh, how it worked. I can't give away the story- that wouldn't be fair and you really need to find out for yourself- but there was a hell of a lot going on in this story and I ate it up like candy. Let's just say that there was more than one force at work here and the plot was truly an intricate web of deceit and betrayal that went back a long way. The bad guys are quite nasty and they should have gotten what was coming to them. I loved the alpha hero, admired him in his convictions, and enjoyed the battle he waged against loving the heroine. But here's the thing... I also wanted to kick his butt. He was straight up mean to Rosin at first. It made me love the story all the more being so busy hating him and all. But you know... that's what I look for in a good book. Connecting with the characters and sharing in their feelings. The good ones and the bad ones. This book let me do that and it happened so easily. Thanks to the writer for inviting me into Gabhran and Rosin's life. That is exactly what it feels like when a story is so good that I can become invested in what happens on those pages.
    I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
