Review of Embrace the Highland Warrior

Embrace the Highland Warrior
Anita Clenney
Sourcebooks Casablanca
ISBN 9781402251269

   Cody McBain, a member of an ancient clan of Scottish warriors, grew up as a secret protector of Shay Logan. Cody was to protect Shay at all costs; but was not supposed to fall in love with her. Cody's heart, however, has other ideas. When Shay's true identity is revealed to her, their chance for love is gone.  
   Shay returns to her childhood home and finds the boy next door still there. She is not prepared for the sexy, handsome man he has become. She does not want to trust him again because she is convinced of his betrayal years ago. She has spent her life since leaving, trying to banish the memories of her love for him; but every man she has ever dated has only been a substitute. No one can take his place. New found danger will drive them back into each others arms. Cody will continue to protect her at all costs. He has no intentions of losing her again.
   This is a wonderful story full of action and adventure at every turn. Let's not forget lust, sex, and love. This story is full of sexy highlanders, vampires and demons. We have two little old ladies, one of which is as crazy as can be. Cody is one heart stopping warrior who makes your mouth water just listening to him. Shay is learning things about herself that is causing some emotional upheaval. In addition, she must learn to embrace the warrior nature in herself and the warrior who has watched over her for years. Together, they must stop the evil that is destined to kill her. If you like highlanders and a good romance, I highly recommend this book. If you just like a good book and an exciting fantasy read, you can't go wrong either.
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with an ARC for reviewing purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book to read and review.

I give Embrace the Highland Warrior 4.5 stars out of 5
