BOOK REVIEW- SADIE'S HIGHLANDER by Maeve Greyson
Highland warrior Alec MacDara and his brothers traveled forward in time to protect the sacred Heartstone. Their cover? Owners and operators of a theme park called Highland Life and Legends. As the chairman, Alec has been fending off requests to film at the breathtaking property. It’s only because of the charming correspondence from an enterprising production assistant that he agrees to a meeting at all. That’s when Alec meets a woman whose lush curves make him forget, for the first time, all about tenth-century Scotland.
A lowly assistant for her sister’s motion picture company, wannabe screenwriter Sadie Williams is shocked when Alec agrees to let them film at the park upon one condition: that she report to him daily. Sadie’s sister always told her that their parents only adopted her because they felt sorry for the ugly little stray. But Alec looks at Sadie like she’s the most tempting creature in the world. And with his gleaming, musclebound body stripped down to nothing but a hip-hugging kilt and boots, Alec clearly knows a little something about temptation.AMAZON 3.5 STARS
Alec and Sadie are good main characters. They each have wildly different pasts. Alec is a warrior through and through. He is fierce but also lovingly kind to those he loves. And Sadie has quickly caught his attention. Sadie has been despised most of her life especially by her selfish ruthless sister, Delia. Sadie was adopted into the family but that didn't make it an easy ride. Even Sadie's adoptive parents weren't all that loving to either of them when they were alive. Now, Delia has even more control over the small inheritance that Sadie has and control over her dreams as a screenwriter. Way too much control for someone so evil.
Dwyn, is someone who adds to the story as do Alec's mother and sister as do a couple of other people. They play a more minor supporting role because the main focus is on Alec and Sadie. And they are trying to get to know each other and stay ahead of conniving Delia.
If you haven't guessed it already Sadie has some major trust issues, as well as poor self-esteem, and body image. All of which makes Alec's wooing of her more difficult. As if that weren't enough challenges to overcome, add to that several major secrets that Alec has.
This is an adult story for several reasons..some language and definitely more sex than I expected.
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion of it.
