Editorial Reviews


"This is a fantastic book with real heroes, true daring, devastating betrayal, surprising loyalty, and passionate romance. A perfect 10." -- Romance Reviews Today

"Wittig shows once again with Daring the Highlander that she is a powerful force in the Scottish historical genre." --

"Wittig...captures the essence of the Scots in her remarkable characters and their colorful, historically accurate, highly romantic love story." -- RT BOOKClub Magazine

Ms. Wittig has penned another highly emotional, soul-stirring historical novel rich in Scottish history." --

About the Author

Laurin Wittig was marked by her Scottish heritage at birth, when her parents chose her uniquely spelled name from a plethora of Scottish family monikers. At ten, she attended her first MacGregor clan gathering and her first ceilidh, where she danced with the hereditary chieftain of the clan. At eleven, she visited Scotland, and it has fueled her imagination ever since.

She studied anthropology at Brown University before launching a career in the computer industry. But as a voracious reader, it was only natural she would become a storyteller too. She penned her first book when her children were young, writing whenever they napped. Her novel The Devil of Kilmartin won the National Readers' Choice Award for short historical romance, and all of her books have appeared on the Amazon Top 100 Historical Romance and Top 100 Historical Fiction lists. Wittig lives in southeastern Virginia with her two children, her husband, and their rescue Eskie.

LOVED her first two books. I will still buy anything she publishes (probably without even reading the summary)but this was my least favorite book

- not only did I not get my update on how my Cat and Tayg are doing. She was still known as the Shrew around the clan and not once did her brother stick up for her when people would continue to talk about her. (sorry but that kinda bothered me)

- I do not understand the hate that the Clan champion had for the hero Ailig. As much as he hated that man through out the book (again for no reason I understood) he was able to step aside with simply a grunt.

- I do not understand the hate Neill had for Ailig. I could understand being a little standoffish but from reading all my other books their circumstance was quit the norm back in the day so again personally I just didn't get it and then like the champion poof Neill was all good with Ailig becoming chief

- I'm sure it was just for plot purposes but with one clan leader known for treason I can't believe that the hosting clan would still be expected to allow those folks to stay there (especially with them being so hostile). I just kept scratching my head on that one.

I did enjoy the relationship between Ailig and Mora. I am glad that she didn't let her reservations from her first marriage get in the way of their time together. I did want to scream at her to LET IT GO already. So they didn't love each other after they got married. It didn't sound like he beat her, treated her cruelly or even yell at her. They just didn't care for each other. Not really worth vowing never to marry again...sheesh.

Again I loved the first two and all and all this was alright (I have read much worse and spent a lot more) so will not hesitate to buy another of Laurin's books!

Ailig MacLeod has just returned to his family home after finding his sister, and bears a message from the King that he knows his father will hate. How can he tell him that his beloved eldest son is dead from treason and the other two brothers were pressed into service in Robert the Bruce's army? And that's not even the worst of it... the real shocker is that Ailig has been ordered by the King to take over as clan chief, effective immediately.

Morainn MacRailt is a young widow who is content in her life on the edge of the village. She has sworn she will never marry again, but will remain free to live as she pleases. When Ailig returns, she feels for his plight but believes he will succeed. Her support means much to Ailig, even though she resists the attraction between them, remaining true to her vow to stay independent.

The situation has yet to grow even more tense, however. A rival clan wants more power, Ailig's father refuses to step down as Clan Chief until Ailig proves himself, and the doubts of the clan threaten all they hold dear. Will Ailig and Morainn's bond be enough to bring peace to their clan? And what of her vow to never love or marry again?

Laurin Wittig shows once again with Daring the Highlander that she is a powerful force in the Scottish historical genre. Her descriptive imagery will transport readers to the Highlands and the turbulent times when Robert the Bruce tries to unite all of Scotland. Readers will feel the wind on their faces, as they see and smell the winter snow along with the characters.

Ailig is a young man thrust into a position he never dreamed of having. His doubts are real, as are his internal strength and sharp mind.

What a refreshing romance! It's set against a lush backdrop of characters and politics in highland Scotland. A great balance between the central characters and the active environment of the time. I loved rooting for the underdog! Instead of the usual mysterious, arrogant, overconfident hero, this one is so much more human, with human doubts and worries, yet he shows such honor without any of the usual bragging. The herione is also different in refreshing ways. How wonderful to read about someone who is experienced, has known happiness, not cruelty, yet like the hero, is not arrogant or bossy. She takes on new challenges with the usual human worries, and rediscovers herself as a worthy person. If you are looking for a historical read that offers something different in the plot and in the characters, try this fabulous book! It is the first time I have read anything by this author, and I have already ordered her previous book, Taming of the Shrew.

The story of Ailig and Moraine was extremely interesting. It held my interest from beginning to end. The lovely part was that I did not (as I usually do) discern the plot - I found myself not quite knowing what would happen. That does not happen often and I adore authors who can keep me in the dark even a little bit. I fell in love with Ailig immediately, because I support the underdog. My heart hurt for the insults hurled at him and reveled in his intelligence when he refused to retaliate for the insult, but step by step made those around him aware of his worth. Moraine was a little like most heroines and a little self-centered by not admitting her fascination with Ailig. With the lifestyle of that period being what it was, women's worth not recognized, I could accept her reaction. I was delighted to see the sub-plots unfold and that the two lovers won out in the end. I will re-read this book again and again, especially when I need a lift.
