I loved the first book ‘Highland Fire’ and this is just as good. It opens with warrior Lael in the middle of getting hanged, listening to her comrades strangle to death one by one before her turn comes. Lael is a wonderful heroine who won’t compromise her fighting values. The author takes you into Lael’s mind where she is always plotting to come out on top, even if it means dumping her hot new hubby. At the same time she is a good boss who seeks her servants’ opinions and motivates them along the way. She is not a cliche heroine so you are never quite sure what she will do next.
I like the storyline too. It keeps the tension going to the end. It does slow down slightly in the middle and the hero’s character doesn’t have much depth. Even so it’s a gripping story and good escapist fun. For those who like to know there are a few (tasteful) sex scenes and the odd grisly death.
How can I give any less than 5 stars ,the tale continues of the Scottish old folk, this one about the sister Lael and Jaime a great Romance, can't wait to see what happens next. Recommend this book to all who love a good story.
Absolutely love this author. Easy to read with alot of depth to her characters family tree and history. The love and romance in this story was captivating, Especially the epilogue. Definitely recommend.
