Saturday Sizzler - To Steal a Highlander's Heart by Samantha Holt.

Hold on to your stays for this one girls. Today I have the wonderful Samantha Holt with me, showing us an excerpt from To Steal a Highlander's Heart. It's getting great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and I am currently reading it myself and thoroughly enjoying it. It is rather steamy, so look away if you prefer the sweeter romances. 

He glanced at Alana and tiptoed to the bed. One sweet breast peeked out of the sheets and he settled beside her. Even as the bed dipped under his weight, she slept on. Male pride filled him. He’d well and truly worn her out, insatiable woman that she was.

Hooking a finger under the sheet, he slid it down, waiting for her to awaken. When she showed no signs of stirring, he grew bolder and slipped the sheets from her body. He admired her creamy skin, slender thighs, the indent of her waist. Red marks graced her where his stubble had scratched her. He regretted marring her delicate skin but a part of him liked the thought of marking her as his. He ached to touch but feared waking her. She looked so perfect, so peaceful. He couldn’t bring himself to disturb that. Was there any better look than that of a satisfied woman? 

Ach, but he’d met his match in Alana. Mayhap he shouldn’t have given in but he didn’t regret it. Somehow he would make everything right. Somehow he would persuade Laird Dougall to let him marry Alana. He’d taken her now. Dougall could hardly deny him his right to her. 

And nothing on Earth could make him let her go now. He only hoped giving into his desire hadn’t put her in danger. He still needed to remain focused until Margot had been caught and there had still been no word from Finn. Or Alana’s father. It was as if the man didn’t even care his daughter was missing. 

Unable to resist any longer, he touched one rosy nipple, his scowl quickly turning into a smile as she released a small moan. Did she dream of him? Lord knows, he dreamed of her often enough. But the reality proved far better than he ever imagined. 

 Her eyelids fluttered open, an inviting smile on her face. “Good morrow,” she said softly, voice still husky from sleep. 

“Good morrow.” 

Need, deep and powerful rolled through him as she stretched with no concern for her naked state. Her eyes widened as her gaze fixed onto his face. She parted her legs in silent invitation. Blood roared in his ears as she offered herself up to him.

Book Blurb/Synopsis
Alana sets eyes on Morgann for the first time in several years and what does he do? He captures her! But Alana refuses to go meekly with the sexy Highland warrior. Her kidnapping will reignite the rift that’s existed between the two clans since her father accused Morgann of theft and she doesn’t want to see her father harmed in the inevitable war that will ensue.

Unfortunately for Alana, the faeries seek to interfere with her plans to escape. The sidhe have a debt to repay and Tèile, the green faery, is determined to mend the rift between the clans for good. And that means ensuring Alana and Morgann marry.

Morgann has his own reasons for taking Alana and they are nothing to do with marriage or war. He wants to use her to reveal a secret from the past, the one that had him accused of theft. If only he didn’t find his childhood friend so attractive. When circumstances force them together, Alana’s life is threatened and war is imminent. Can Morgann reveal the truth without losing Alana? And will the faery’s meddling help or hinder his cause?

Samantha resides in Warwickshire, England with her twin girls and husband. She's a romance addict and has been devouring all kinds of romance for as long as she can remember.

She likes to blend her love of the past with her passion for romance to create thrilling and passionate tales set to medieval backdrops. In her opinion there's nothing sexier than a rugged warrior and a feisty maiden falling head over heels for each other.
