In 1460 on the Isle of Skye, the Macleod Laird risks a fighting feud with their neighboring clan the Frasers by kidnapping a high ranking family member. The Laird plans to insure a baby is produced between them so no one can challenge her claim as the Macleod laird.

Ewan Fraser is stunned what has happened to him as he is the brother to the powerful clan Laird. He knows Brianna Macleod, who abducted him, from when them met ten years ago and vowed to one day marry though he scoffed at her belief she will be the laird. She informs him that he will make her pregnant. Irate at himself as much as he is with her he is looking forward to her having her way with him while he is in chains.

BOUND TO PLEASE is a fabulous historical romance in which Hope Tarr uses gender bending in the positions of leadership, captivity, and the boudoir to refresh the Scottish historical theme. The story line is fast-paced; mostly driven by the chained hero and his female capturer who takes him although there is a troublemaking villain trying to use the situation for personal gain. Readers will enjoy this amusing aptly titled novel.
