I don’t read that many Highlander romances, but this one stuck out to me in particular. Usually, the illegitimate child storyline comes into play for a historical romance based in London, not Scotland, but this book was a bit of both.
At first, I was a bit confused. I thought that Blair was going to marry her betrothed’s brother, but then she was able to run off with Finlay! Thank goodness she was able to, however, because Henry and his family definitely wouldn’t have given her a good life. Her relationship with Finlay gets off to a rocky start as he has to take her on horseback on a long journey the day after their wedding, and she is so ill on her wedding night that she feels that she is failing her husband. But the longer that they spend on this trip, the closer they get to one another, and the more that they realize that they love each other.
The romance in this story was amazing. Finlay and Blair definitely had chemistry, and they respected one another. Blair had already gone through a really poor relationship before, so she wasn’t sure exactly what a good relationship was. Finlay knew that she was beautiful, but he didn’t want to push this already broken woman too far. They dance around each other until they feel comfortable with one another, and then it still takes them a few chapters to realize how strong their feelings for one another truly are.
The side story about Finlay believing that Blair was out to kill him played out in an interesting way. It definitely wasn’t my favorite part of the story, it was pretty clear that Blair was madly in love with Finlay and would do nothing to hurt him. But it was interesting seeing Finlay try to figure out what exactly was going on with his wife, learning more of her backstory in the process.
My other favorite part of the story was learning about Finlay’s family. Illegitimate children always have interesting stories in romance novels, so I was hunting for all the clues as Blair and Finlay pieced together the truth about Finlay’s parent’s relationship. It was a sad story, but I enjoyed it. I did want to punch Finlay’s brothers though, they were so awful to him. It was no wonder that he was a bit emotionally closed off.
I read this entire book in one sitting, I just couldn’t put it down. 307 pages later, I am happy that I read it, and I hope to read more romance stories from this author.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an adult Highlander romance.
I received a copy of this book and this is my voluntary review.
