Review of RISK EVERYTHING by Sophia Johnson (see her website)
Zebra Historical Romance, June 2005
Rolf MacDaidh is consumed with his need for revenge. Since he returned home to find his dying wife and newborn son, he's plotted his revenge on the man who stole his happiness. Kidnapping Meghan of Blackthorn--the pride of Blackthorn--is just the start of the vengence he requires. Next, he'll tame her, bed her, and claim a son out of her. Rolf knows the taming will not be easy--he's known Meghan much of his life--but he's driven enough to make it happen.
Meghan loved Rolf as a teen--so much that she has refused all offers for her hand. But Rolf has changed. She battles him as best she can, using all the weapons at her disposal and winning the respect and affection of Rolf's clan. But Rolf has an uncanny ability to detect her plans, to hunt her down when she attempts escape, and to make her body quiver at his touch. When Rolf offers an apparent compromise, Meghan snatches at it, little guessing it is merely part of Rolf's extended plan for revenge.
Author Sophia Johnson (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Johnson) marks her debut with a fast-moving medieval historical. Meghan and Rolf are obviously soulmates, but Rolf's need for vengence creates a rift that even Meghan can see no crossing. Johnson teases with just a hint of paranormal--could it be that one of the secondary characters is from the modern age? Fans of this book will definitely be looking for the sequels (prequels?) to find out more about Meghan's extended family and her strange upbringing.
If you're looking for a powerful Scottish lord who finds himself tamed by his spitfire captive, you'll definitely want to get your hands on RISK EVERYTHING.
