With If You Dare, Cole introduces a thrilling new romance trilogy featuring fierce Scottish brothers with dangerous lives, dark desires, and a deadly curse. Can he exact revenge? High in the Pyrenees, a band of mercenaries led by Courtland MacCarrick wages war for General Reynaldo Pascal. When Court turns on the evil general, Pascal orders him killed but Court narrowly escapes and exacts revenge by kidnapping Pascal's exquisite Castilian fiancée. Can she deny her passions? Lady Annalía Tristán Llorente despises her towering, barbaric captor almost as much as she does Pascal. Her inexplicable attraction to the Highlander only fuels her fury. But nothing will stop her from returning to Pascal -- for if she doesn't wed him, she signs her brother's death warrant, as well as her own. Can there be love between them? From the moment Court discovers that Anna's prim façade masks a fiery, brave lass, his heart's ensnared, and he dares to defy the curse that has shadowed his life -- to walk with death or walk alone. But Pascal vows that he'll hunt the two, never stopping until he's destroyed them both.… (mais)

If You Dare
3.5 Stars

Court MacCarrick and his brothers, Hugh and Ethan, are cursed never to know love or father children. As such, they feel they have nothing to lose and live their lives on the edge. Working as a mercenary for a warlord in Andorra, Court is double-crossed and left for dead until he is rescued by the beautiful if arrogant, Annalia Llorente.

The basic premise is entertaining and the hero is a sexy, scrumptious highlander (what's not to love) but the heroine almost ruins the book. Throughout the first half of the story, Annalia is prejudiced, elitist and TSTL! There are moments when I found myself wanting the villains to shoot her. She does improve somewhat in the second half, however, the damage to the romance is done.

In contrast, the secondary heroine, Olivia, is much more likable (even if she is the villain's daughter) and her romance with Annalia's brother has incredible potential but unfortunately takes a back seat.

Despite his somewhat Neanderthal-like tendencies (similar to Lachlain MacRieve in A Hunger Like No Other), Court is an admirable character caught between the knowledge that every woman he cares for will suffer and his need to love and be loved. He has the patience of a saint when it comes to Annalia and personally, I think he deserved better. Nevertheless, their chemistry sizzles and Cole definitely knows how to write a steamy sex scene.

The next two books are about Court's brothers and one can only hope that the heroines are an improvement. ( )

A dramatic tale of lust, love and revenge set in the mountains of Andorra. ( )
  CarolKub | Dec 16, 2016 |
This is a historical Romance set in Scotland in the late 1830s/early 1840s. The premise is that the legacy of three brothers include a curse that fates them to a loveless & childless life of violence; but of course, since this a Romance novel there must be some sort of twist that will guarantee a HEA! In this first-in-series, Courtland "Court" MacCarrick is a mercenary serving in Spain; and Lady Annalía Tristán Llorente is the mistress of an estate in the Pyrenees. Though the story is different enough that it won't melt into the morass of Regency-era Romances that flood this market, it's not competitive with Diana Gabaldon's, 'Outlander.' ( )
