Sister of Rogues by Cynthia Breeding Review @samhainpub @BreedingCynthia

Sister of Rogues (Rogue, #4)
Release date: February 17, 2015
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Historical (Highlander) Romance
Series: Rogue #4

A Highland lass fights for freedom…only to realize her heart belongs to her captor.

One moment Fiona MacLeod is attending a London ball, and the next she’s kidnapped and placed in the Dublin Lunatic Asylum by Wesley Alton, a madman who wants revenge on her family.

Her one bit of good fortune is that with the women’s ward at the asylum overflowing, she’s assigned a room in a nearby castle. But the more she tries to deny Alton’s cleverly concocted facts, the crazier she sounds to her keeper, the handsome Earl Kier O’Reilly.

With his family fortune dwindling, Kier pays his taxes by hosting non-violent asylum inmates in his ancestral castle. He’s immediately attracted to Fiona’s grey-eyed ethereal beauty, but he sternly reminds himself she’s his ward.

No matter what his heart whispers and his body screams, he cannot take advantage of a woman who is clinging to the last of her wits.

Meanwhile, the MacLeod brothers are hunting for their sister, and woe betide whoever stands in their way.

Warning: A beautiful Scottish lass trapped in a nightmare, an Irish earl with a revolutionary secret whose resistance is weakening, an allegedly haunted castle tower, and three braw Highland brothers who refuse to give up hope.

My Rating: 4 Roses

An interesting and unique historical romance that took me on a different turn, Sister of Rogues was a fantastic read. With lovely romance and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat, this book was wonderful and I really liked it.

Fiona was great. She was vivacious, tough, and refused to give up hope, even in the dire circumstances that she was in. Even though she knew her brothers would come for her, she wasn't about to just sit and wait. She was a lovely character and I liked her.

Kier was just as wonderful. He was a genuinely kind man who refused to let the people housed in his castle be treated badly. He had his own ideas for changing the world and was wise enough to know that it wouldn't happen overnight. He was great hero who I really liked as well.

The romance was well done. Fiona and Kier started off being attracted to each other and, as they grew to know each other, their feelings deepened. I thought they were sweet together and an overall lovely couple.

The plot moved quickly and kept me interested all the way through. Their was a constant tension as the brothers tried to find Fiona and Fiona tried to prove her sanity and that kept me fully engaged. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was great.

Sister of Rogues was a wonderful historical romance that I really enjoyed. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll definitely want to check out.
