Beauty and the Highland Beast by Lecia Cornwall
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I wanted to like this book more than I did. I liked the first half but it went downhill fast.
Dair is a pirate of sorts and one time when he was out on sea his ship was attacked and they killed his whole crew except him and his cousin Jeannie. They rape, torture and kill Jeannie in from of Dair and then just send DAir back home so he can be a warning for his clan. Dair is back home and was grieving his cousin Jeannie... his cousin. But the way he went on and on about her it felt like they were in love and that got creepy. I didn't like that at all. I know in that time period things were different but still the way it was written was creepy. Anyways he screams at night because he dreams of Jeannie. Everyone thinks he's mad.
Some weird goddess shit happens and the chief is told he needs to find the virgin, the virgin is the only one who can save him. So he goes and finds a virgin. yeahhhh just like that. Oh we need a virgin? Let's go to another clan and ask for a virgin. blah. The virgin (Fia) comes and sings to Dair and it soothes him.
Some other shit happens. A dude goes bat shit crazy and tries to kill everyone. The end.
The only thing I ended up liking about this book was the cat. Im gonna give it 2 stars because I honestly liked it at first. Just the more he talked about Jeannie the more creeped out I got and then Fia started acting like a desperate fool and I just couldn't handle it ant more.
