24/1 - The bad guy, Lord William Wentworth, is a wishy-washy bad guy. One minute he seems evil and menacing and likely to rape Annie or have Cooke, his lackey, kill MacKinnon; the next he's acting like a mostly normal lord, a bit stuffy, but certainly not evil like the usual highlander bad guys are. He's a strangely drawn character, like he's an actor who knows he's supposed to be the bad guy, but doesn't want to play that part because he's really a nice guy. I have read two of Clare's other romances and found them much more engaging than this one, maybe because I can't help but compare the characters of Ian and Annie to the characters from my favourite higlander series - the one which I now compare all Scottish highland romances to - by Karen Marie Moning. To be continued...

26/1 - I was very surprised to see Wentworth become even less of a bad guy by helping out with the rescue of Annie from her evil Uncle Bain. I mean, sure he asked her to become his mistress afterwards, but it's not like he was going to become a saint overnight. I haven't read any of the other books in the series, but if I had my way the Wentworth character would run through the rest of the books, his character slowly improving as the main characters go about their business and then at the end of the final book in the series he's improved enough to actually get a nice girl to fall in love with and, marry him. Even though it still couldn't match up to my ideal highland romance, this was quite good. Enjoyable enough that I finished it without much effort, but I wouldn't want to pay any money for it or read it again, so I'll be glad to be able to return it to the library tomorrow.
