In the second book in the Well Pleasured series Ian Fairchild arrives at Fionnaway Manor in Scotland at his dying father’s behest As one of the infamous Fairchilds he’s an illegitimate son trapped in a cruel family who taunts him and makes him feel inferior He’s also part Selkie and has abandonment issues since his seal shifter mother left him when he was a childLady Alanna MacLeod is the long lost rightful heir and mistress of the manor She ran away four years ago to escape an unsuitable marriage and now plans to return on her twenty first birthday to take control of the manor and her lands Unfortunately for her Ian wants her property just as badly as she does He’s the son and heir to the cruel Leslie Fairchild Alanna’s guardian When she returns Ian knows he’ll only get the property through marriage so he sets out to seduce her I couldn’t relate to Alanna and Ian They’re both strong stubborn characters but they constantly butted heads He’s so desperate for a home and a place to belong that he selfishly seduces her without a care to her wants and needs Likewise she’s so naïve and hopeful to win back her home from Leslie that she can’t see all the problems ahead of her As a land owning woman in her time period she doesn’t have many rights and needs a husband to secure her future It’s not right or fair but that’s how things worked Given her options I found her very foolish for not giving Ian a chance to prove himself Also the age difference irked me She’s 21 and he’s 34 It was a little much for me Though I liked parts of this book I don’t understand why Alanna and Ian catered to Leslie who was an absolutely horrible person He despises his son and makes everyone around him miserable In the previous book he even had a woman’s hand chopped off as a jokeAs with the first book this one is considered “politically incorrect” Maybe I’m just jaded but I didn’t think this one was that bad Yes Ian sleeps with Alanna and takes her virginity when she’s drugged and unable to consent but he didn’t hurt her and she was awake enough to moan in pleasure even though she thought the experience was a wonderful dream I agree what he did was wrong but I’ve read much worse in other books I wish Sebastian and Mary from book one would’ve made an appearance Ian’s cousin Wilda was here and she’s childish than I remember Still I liked the development of her character I enjoyed the history of the Selkies the description of the Highland landscape and the Hh’s romance once they finally worked through their differences I would’ve liked an epilogue or some detail about how the Selkie pact will change since the death of one of the guardians There’s one book in the series a novella in the Scottish Brides anthology and I look forward to reading it 3 Stars

I admit I'm not too fond of paranormal romance I like a good ol' historical romance without any magic and such I came to a conclusion that I wouldn't have minded it too much Maybe that's part of the reason the book did not sell to me But what mostly bothered me was SPOILER SPOILER the heroine being taken in her sleep OO I just really cannot fathom how this can be considered romantic There were some nice and funny parts though I liked the Dream of me part and Ian's confession But I think their pairing lacked some chemistry
