They believe she is a witch but she is really just a healer. Rogan takes her son as hostage because he wants Aidan dead. He gives Lili a ring with poison to take his life and if she does she can have her son back. Lili doesn’t really want to take a life.
I enjoyed the story line. I must say there is a bit of adult content. What really bothers me, would be the Scottish slang. It’s a bit horrid. I do understand keeping in characteristics for that time. It was just annoying as I can’t understand the words.
My disclaimer... I was given a copy of this book for my honest review. Any book or novels I leave reviews on are not dependent on the book/novel review author’s opinion. No one influenced my voluntary review for any of the books or novels I read, they are my own opinions
When I buy a cheaper book I expect lower quality. That's not the case with 'Highland Fire'. It's an excellent adventure-romance that I would recommend to anyone looking for solid entertainment. However while the adventure is strong and compelling, the romance is a bit weaker.
Lili's father kills the chief of a wild tribe who put a death curse on Lili's future husbands. Now a widow with a small son, Lili is used as a Trojan horse by her ruthless father. He marries her to to new chieftain Aiden, assuming the curse will kill Aiden off.
Lili struggles to gain acceptance from her new tribe. The wild clan are described vividly and their culture is one of the fun things about this book. Less fun is a pooing contest that made me bring up my lunch. Lili struggles with choosing her son's life over her husband. It's pretty gripping.
As I have come to expect from this author, another good read. Immerse yourself in a wonderful time with good and nasty people. The 2 main characters fight the attraction that they feel but in the end love wins all. Recommended read.
