Highland Groom by Hannah Howell (2003)
Description: Sir Diarmot MacEnroy, deciding his illegitimate children need a mother and his keep needs a proper lady, now stands before the altar with a gentle bride he hopes is too shy to disrupt his life or break his heart. The nuptials, however, are interrupted by the appearance of a flame haired beauty carrying two babies, boldly claiming that she is his wife and mother of his two infant sons. Armed with her seven very large brothers, she has come to demand her due.
Now Ilsa Cameron MacEnroy faces the nearly impossible task of conquering his past – and his fierce reluctance to share his heart. It will take more than desire to win his trust. It will take the magic touch of a woman in love.
Review: Ah, those fiery Camerons. I think they are my favorite family in the Howell universe. This was a fun read, although not my favorite Howell story. Poor Ilsa had to really overcome a lot to hang on to her man. Diarmot was pretty much an ass throughout the book, but it wasn’t all his fault. I think I liked learning more about Ilsa’s brother Sigimore the most of this entire story. I wouldn’t read this one unless you want to have a nice introduction to the Camerons.
