The Recruit by Monica McCarty
Scotland’s King Robert the Bruce is retaking his kingdom from the invading English. To win, he’ll need all the grit and courage of his elite band of warriors, the Highland Guard, men who fight without fear and love without limits.

Fiery, aggressive, and bold, Kenneth Sutherland is a true champion -- skilled with any weapon and driven to win. Now Kenneth is ready for his greatest challenge: joining Robert the Bruce’s secret army to fight among the elite. Kenneth’s best chance to attain that honor is by winning the Highland Games. Focused and prepared for victory, he is caught off guard by a lovely wisp of a woman -- and a stolen moment of wicked seduction. Her innocent arousal and her shameless hunger fire his blood. He will win his place in the guard -- and in Mary of Mar’s bed.

The ruggedly handsome hero-in-the-making stirs a heart that should know better. Mary vows that her surrender will be sport only -- no promises, no heartbreak, just one night of incredible passion. Nothing, she swears, will persuade her to give up her hard-wrought independence and put her fate in the hands of another powerful man. But with every gentle touch and heart-pounding kiss, Kenneth makes her want more. Now Mary wants his heart. But is this determined champion willing to surrender everything for love?

I just finished reading “The Recruit” by Monica McCarty and it was exciting and sensual. The story is about a man who was handsome, bold, and a true champion. He wants to belong to the greatest warrior group under Scotland’s King Robert the Bruce. His talents are legendary on the battlefield as well as the bedroom. Who could this man be? Why Kenneth Sutherland of course. But he has a little bit of a problem and it gets him in trouble at times.
If Kenneth could win all the Highland Games, he would be considered for the spot in the Guard. But his temper gets the best of him when he fails to accomplish his goal. He blames his troubles on a petite and feisty woman who shared a night of passion and leaves him with no regard.
Mary of Mar couldn’t believe herself when she succumbed to the virile and very sexy man who turned her world upside down. She’s never known what true passion was until that night. But she knows that Kenneth Sutherland is a lover of women and cannot be trusted. So the widowed Mary travels back to her home in England and decides to get on with her life . But things get complicated when Kenneth is sent to England to spy for the Bruce . Little does he know that his life will change when he gets there. Because the one woman he could not forget is now where he can continue his seduction. Will Kenneth and Mary get the happy ever after? Please read this book to find out.
