Synopsis:
She's On Her Way to Safety
It's a sign of Lady Rosalia Armstrong's desperation that she's seeking refuge in a place as rugged and challenging as the Scottish Highlands. She doesn't care about hardship and discomfort, if only she can become master of her own life. Laird Ciaran MacGregor, however, is completely beyond her control...
He Redefines Dangerous...
Ciaran MacGregor knows it's perilous to get embroiled with a fiery Lowland lass, especially one as headstrong as Rosalia. Having made a rash promise to escort her all the way to Glengarry, now he's stuck with her, even though she challenges his legendary prowess at every opportunity. When temptation reaches its peak, he'll be ready to show her how he really is...on and off the battlefield

My Review:

Ok I confess, when I requested this book I had no idea what it was about. that cover??? Was all I needed, I mean it's a hot man in a kilt what more can you want?? I clicked it I just HAD to have it. no need to know what it's about when the cover sells it. then of course I read it & absolutely loved it!!!

i enjoyed the characters in the book, the love story and even how quickly the book pulled you in & how the story quickly it moved Poor Rosalia, she had a real tough life, her mom sounds like a horrible human, a spoiled brat who is used to getting whatever she wants and holds that over her child, you know the type the ones who never wanted to be a mother & insists that the child ruined their figure?? Yeah that's Rosalia's mom, that moment in Rosalia's bedroom?? OMGosh when you read that scene you will know what I'm talking about, for the few pages I was freaking out like wait ...noooo.. it can't be.  

The love story that forms between them is just pretty awesome, I loved Ciaran he was perfect for Rosalia.  Ciaran made for an interesting male lead, he wants so much but expects so little for himself.  I really loved his brother, and even the mystery that forms is just amazing.

CONS:
Ciaran's & his brother's attitude towards Beathag a 'leman' was once considered a position of 'honor'.  Don't laugh, many women who were 'leman' were later married to others of higher social standing or in the case of Ann Boylen ended up becoming Queen.  It's historically inaccurate to go at her like that. A leman was considered a lady of the house when there was no lady married to the lord. She had all the responsibilities of taking care of the home.  I really disliked how Ciaran would call her a whore,even though he was the one to make her into one.  Your the one sleeping with her and 'using' her services, so what does that make you??

Four out of five stars, I really enjoyed the novel despite this attitude,  it was a great historical romance.  Happy Reading I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Must add to the top of the reading pile. i can't wait to read the other brothers stories, they promise to be a good fun rump through the Highlands.  Don't forget to Add to Goodreads

Happy Rumping through the Highlands
