About the Book
Title: My Fierce Highlander (Highland Adventure #1)
Author: Vonda Sinclair
Release Date: July 26, 2011
Genre: Historical Romance, Medieval, Scottish
Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans–her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he’s left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family?
Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her–give up her son or the man she loves.
Vonda has touched me from the very first to last page. There was so much passion in this writing. There were a few times that it brought me to tears. I am completely and utterly enthralled with Vonda’s style of writing!
This is the first book in her Highlander Adventure Series, and it was impeccable. I would read this story again and again. Don’t get me wrong, there were times that I wanted to maim the heroine because she was just so hard headed! But at the same time, you can’t help but envy her strength and secrecy; she does have a son to protect.
Due to a scandal in England, Gwyneth has moved to the Highlands; living in a little cabin with her healer friend, who taught her everything she needs to know about taking care of the sick. She has helped many people, and comes across the Highland Chief Alasdair, who has been injured with his men. He ends up being one of the only men left alive, although barely hanging on.
So Gwyneth does one of the bravest things I’ve ever seen or read; she saves him! But when Alasdair starts becoming better, he makes his way home, and before you know it, that favor Gwyneth bestowed upon him is something she may need in return.
Can they come together to fight evil and begin an everlasting love? Check out this book to find out what happens, when a English Lass and a Hunky Highlander band together.
