BOOK REVIEW- HIGHLAND HEAT by Mary Wine

Highland Heat (Hot Highlanders Book 3) by [Wine, Mary]
Ruined, Betrayed, and banished...
As brave as she is impulsive, Deirdre Chattan's tendency to follow her heart and not her head has finally tarnished her reputation beyond repair. But when powerful Highland Laird Quinton Cameron finds her, he doesn't care about her past-it's her future he's about to change...
But it's never too late for redemption...
From the moment Quinton sets eyes on Deirdre Chattan, rational thought vanishes. For in her eyes he sees a fiery spirit that matches his own, and he'll be damned if he'll let such a wild Scottish rose wither under the weight of a nun's habit...
With nothing to lose, Deirdre and Quinton band together to protect king and country. But what they can accomplish alone is nothing compared to what they can build with their passion for each other..
.AMAZON 3.5 stars
Both of the main characters were strong people and I liked both of them.   Deirdre had been shamed for being a strong woman.  She had also been betrayed and tossed aside.   
Quinton liked her fiery personality although he didn't exactly treat her well the whole time either.  At least he was one of the few who didn't try to change her.   The attraction between the two was red hot and there was sex a plenty in the story.
The story seemed true to its era where women were used as a commodity for power, and alliances.  When a Highlander found a woman she was his to keep and do whatever he wanted to her.  Deidre in her bid to escape was grabbed by one man after another.  She managed to escape them often by the skin of her teeth.  There was more twists and turns and political shenanigans.  
There is a H.E.A. but Deidre also has some close calls with imprisonment and death before that happens.
