NEW RELEASE/ ARC REVIEW/BOOK TOUR

The Highlander’s Pirate Lass (The Brothers of Wolf Isle Book 2) by Heather McCollum

Description

Eliza Wentworth is no lady. After the notorious pirate Jandeau murdered her family, she vowed to spend the rest of her life at sea, saving others. She’d rather be firing cannons than embroidering pillows—or worse, bowing to the demands of a husband. But when she’s stranded on an island off the coast of Scotland, now she is the one in need of help. And, annoyingly, that help comes not only from a man, but a man she struggles to resist.

Highlander Beck Macquarie has never met a woman like Eliza. He hasn’t met many women, period, thanks to the blasted curse set upon Wolf Isle decades ago. To save the clan, he needs a wife and bairns, and rough-around-the edges Eliza is anything but wife material. She has no intention of staying once she’s able to set sail again. He should let her go. But the desire between them is impossible to ignore.

When she asks Beck to teach her the ways of the bedroom while she bides her time on his island, he can’t say no. As they learn more about each other, though, past trauma and secrets resurface. Now, Eliza must choose between the freedom and comfort of the only life she’s ever known and sacrificing it all to save the people she loves…including Beck.

The Highlander’s Pirate Lass (The Brothers of Wolf Isle Book 2) by Heather McCollum

My Review

Reading the description did have me chuckling. A female pirate, and one that isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. It sounded like quite a ride. 

Eliza was brought up with seawater flowing through her veins. She loves the sea, and she absolutely adores her family.

But it wasn’t always that way, her parents her brutally murdered by the pirate Jandeau!

Being rescued by a Privateer (A privateer is a private person or ship that engages in maritime warfare under a commission of war) John Pritchert gave Eliza a new family to love and care for, they continue to hunt Jandeau and rescue as many as they can from his clutches!

So when she finds out that John has been taken and held by the British. Eliza will do whatever it takes to free them. 

Beck is brother to Adam Macquarie (Chief on Wolf Isle) second son and probably more of a gentleman than his brother. 

The curse of the Isle and his clan is still in force ….. 

So he’s left the isle to find love (all his clansmen have to find love to break the curse!) 

Chemistry is almost instant, but Eliza is wary, and Beck knows that it’s hopeless to fall for this fiery beauty!! She won’t give up the sea, so entertained her would just be a waste of time…..

Spending so much time with the gorgeous captain is going to cause heartbreak for Eliza, but it’s her family that has to come first. 

A really great way to spend an afternoon, and it’s nothing less than what I’ve come to expect from this author. She brings whatever world we are in at the moment come to life. Very descriptive and beautifully written. 

This is the second book in the brothers of Wolf Isle Series. It’s not necessary to read book one in this series, but there are a few things that will make this book make a little more sense. 

So can Beck convince Eliza to give up the sea and her family? 

Can Eliza rescue her adoptive father John? and what will she do if she ever comes face to face with her hated enemy Jandeau? 

A highly enjoyable read. Plenty of action and adventure with enough romance to keep me happy.
