Because I love Highlanders. Enough said.


Cursed by past tragedies, notorious Highlander Laird Athdar MacCallum has devoted himself to leading his people - and has vowed never to marry again. Until he is utterly disarmed by the innocent beauty in the eyes of Isobel Ruriksdottir

Isobel is drawn to the vulnerability she senses behind the fearsome facade of the clan chief. But with his formidable reputation, he is strictly forbidden. Being together can only lead them into danger, yet the temptation to risk all for their perilous passion is impossible to ignore.

Obviously I need to read the other books in the series…because this one was nice and kind of steamy. In other words= me likey. So Isobel  is kind of dreamer to me, and she’s a little manipulative, but I still like how ballsy she is. I liked the idea of the bad boy turned good and the young lady who sees him for what he really is. It was interesting to see the romance between the characters because you learn of their history and you watch their relationship come together. Overall, it was a good read but there was something missing when I was reading it, and I’m not certain if it’s because I have not read the rest of the series, but I don’t think that’s the reason.
Isobel—Overall really nice, but she knows what she wants and what to do to get it.

Athdar—headstrong and determined to make up for his past

There was something missing with this story. I’m not sure is its because of the background info I was missing from the other books in the series or just something about the story overall

Overall it was still a more than enjoyable read. It left me happy and smiling and had me wanting to read the other books in the series (which really tells ya something). I found it was relatively easy to follow (even though there was some old forms of speech) and would definitely recommend it to those that love Highlanders.
