Love is worth any risk in this seductive finale of USA Today Bestselling Author Gayle Callen’s Highland Wedding series…

The last thing clan chief Duncan Carlyle expects to encounter in the rain-soaked highlands was Catriona Duff, daughter of the corrupt earl responsible for the price on his head. Yet Duncan finds himself sheltering the beauty who claims to have lost her memory. Catriona could be the key to stopping her father, but only if Duncan can keep her identity—and his dangerously powerful desire—to himself.

Duncan may have rescued Catriona, but the gruff outlaw clearly doesn’t trust her. She’s moved by his mission to rescue kidnapped children, but hiding in a network of caves means living in close quarters with everyone—including Duncan. And even as Catriona struggles to remember her past, the present draws her ever closer to this enigmatic man…and to the secret that could change everything.

This is the third book that I read from Gayle Callen and coincidentally, this is the third book in the Highland Weddings series. I had started reading the first two books in this series and then abandoned them.

It does seem like I do know why I had abandoned them. I really had a hard time getting into Love with the Scottish OutlawFortunately, I was able to get past the first few chapters.

Love with the Scottish Outlaw is about Lady Catriona Duff whose carriage falls over a cliff and she wakes up with amnesia. She is found on the road by Duncan Carlyle, who is an outlaw. Duncan instantly recognizes Cat but he doesn’t reveal her identity because she is the daughter of his enemy and Duncan is out for revenge.

I liked the premise. I also love the slow burn romance here. However, I miss more interactions between Cat and Duncan! I felt like there wasn’t really a real instance where Cat would fall in love with him. Sure, she was attracted to him, but I wasn’t really sold on their love.

That being said, I loved that Cat found out about Duncan’s lies in the three-quarters part of the book, which actually gave them enough time to overcome this obstacle.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. It was a little hard to get into at first, but once I did, I got immersed in the story.
