The Chieftain's Curse - Frances Housden Book review




Euan McArthur is a chieftain in need of an heir.

While still a young a warrior, Euan incites the fury of a witch. She retaliates with a curse that no wife will ever bear him an heir. As he buries his third wife and yet another bonnie stillborn son, Euan can no longer cast her words aside.

Morag Farquhar is a woman in need of sanctuary. With a young relative in tow, Morag flees the only home she has ever known to escape her brother, Baron of Wolfsdale, and find sanctuary in the MacArthur stronghold. Pronounced barren by a midwife, Morag is of little
value to her family, but a Godsend to Euan, a lover he can’t kill by getting with child.

Years ago, chance drew them together, and tangled their lives in ways they could never have imagined. This time their destiny lies in their own hands, but it will take courage and strong hearts to see it through to the end.



 






Original and interesting storyline set in the 11th century Scottish Highlands. We see the relationship build between Morag and Evan which I enjoyed much so and are taken into the world that Frances has created.

As a reader I had to get use to the authors writing style, being a first read of this authors work.   It took me a little longer to absorb the words within the pages - With it being set in a world so different to our own, but  I took my time reading it and paying attention to all detail.


The saucy moments were ** erotic**  ** waggles eyebrows** Love a good erotica and Frances did this well.

Frances portrayed her characters well and the storyline with interest and depth. Even the secondary characters were well fleshed out.

This story is  Filled with many secrets, at times as the reader I was unable to work out which way the story was headed but at the same time I enjoyed this.

 I
love stories set in the highlands, as well as a sexy Hot Scottish man.   ** grins ** The author did a wonderful job of putting forth the descriptions and characters in this story as well as the story set within the medieval times.


The lives of the main characters and families are all entwined within the story giving us a vast variety of conflicts within the pages – this gives
the reader a few twists and turns to make it an interesting read.

An enjoyable read – filled erotic romance with second chances, lies, manipulation, regret, and betrayal.

The Cheiftain's curse is a well written Erotica - with some smokin hot scenes. So be prepared when reading for it to get a little heated and passionate ;) Loved the erotica. Well detailed and ** sizzlin ** blushes.


Will be reading more of this authors works in the future , especially the Highland stories.


Thank you to Harlequin Australia for supplying me with a copy of this book for my honest review.
