Review

"Overall, I felt like I was reading a nice combination of Julie Garwood and Johanna Lindsey and although I have never heard of this author until now,  I am already a fan. Vonda Sinclair did an amazing job writing an entertaining highland romance. It was fluid and wonderfully paced which allowed me as a reader to savour the character's emotions and events written within the pages. I look forward to the next installment in this highly anticipated series." Lori at Escape Between the Pages

"Vonda Sinclair captures the excitement and magic in romance with My Fierce Highlander! Her vivid story telling brought the Scottish Highlands to life with detail and accuracy. The language used was not complicated if you are unaccustomed to Scottish Romances, just enough of that sexy brogue and Gaelic to make you tingle. Sinclair delivers a plot that is enticing and moved fluidly with captivating characters full of dimension that were brought to life on the pages. The romance was balanced nicely with action and suspense. I was caught breathless during the most romantic scenes ever, being drawn in by Alasdair and Gwyneth's sizzling chemistry and fiery passion." Crystal at Reading Between the Wines

"I started around 10pm and ended up reading it straight through til 2am! I kept saying to myself "As soon as I find a stopping point, I'll put it down," but I just kept on reading... This was my first Vonda Sinclair read, and it won't be my last. The Highland Hussy decrees that Ms. Sinclair is a fantastic writer, who brought so much of the reality of fighting and feuding Highlanders to the pages, that it was easy to visualize and sympathize with Gwyneth."

From the Author

Scotland is such a magical place, it is easy to see how so many myths and legends were born here. It is also my favorite place to visit. When I write stories set in Scotland, I return there in my mind and endeavor to bring the beauty to life through words. Scotland is a brooding and moody place, but always breathtaking and awe-inspiring. The history is filled with conflict, passion and the yearning for freedom. The landscape of the Highlands is harsh, filled with rocks, mountains, lochs, peat bogs and lovely cold beaches. The sky is dramatic and very much a part of the wild landscape, especially when the clouds drift down and caress the mountains. In the morning, the mist rises and floats, ghost-like as rays of sunlight knife through.
***
I have been in love with romance as long as I can remember... from those first fairy tales that held me enthralled, to daydreams, to putting the first words on paper.  Stories affect me profoundly which is why I write the ones with happy endings.  Cultivating characters and their journeys and allowing them to spring to life on a page where others can experience them is one of the great joys in life. Characters are magical.  Do I create them or do they use me as a portal to life?

My Fierce Highlander by Vonda Sinclair is a touching read, filled with adventure and heart stopping romance.

English Lady Gwyneth Carswell is banished from her home and position by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands. Her one mistake in judgment led to her becoming pregnant in the year 1618.

Married to a brutal highland man of her father's choosing, then widowed a short time later, Gwyneth will do anything to protect her beloved son Rory, not only from the shame of his illegitimacy, but physically also.

She vows he will not learn the ways of war her clan and the bloodthirsty laird MacIrwin wish to teach him. Rather, she strengthens his mind through education, in hopes that he will one day be able to leave the battle bloodied highlands for a safe, peaceful position as a professor or some other nonviolent profession.

Laird Alasdiar MacGrath leads a neighboring clan, yet unlike The MacIrwin, Alasdiar longs for peace between their clans. He strives to end two hundred years of funding by agreeing to come in person to MacIrwin land, a peace treaty safely tucked away in his clothing.

But Donald MacIrwin laird is not an honorable man, and he ambushes Alasdiar and the men who traveled with him, rendering almost all dead.

Gwyneth, a healer, stumbles across the battlefield, and is sickened by the senseless carnage. She discovers Alasdiar gravely wounded, and struggles to decide what she should do.

She sees from his clothing that he is from an enemy clan, and suspects by the fine quality of his garments that he holds some high position within his clan, perhaps even the laird. She knows if she assists him she risks not only her life, but that of her son and the elderly healer she and Rory lived with.

Who doesn't love Highlanders? Hmm? Alasdair is a mighty highland warrior with a past heartache that rounds him out as perfect hero material. Gwyneth is a heroine who has been to hell and back and will do anything to protect her son and ensure his future.

I read this book in one sitting. The chemistry between Alasdair and Gwyneth is sizzling. Rory, the son, is so freaking adorable I wanted to hug him. The emotional conflict for Gwyneth was real and I felt horrible for her. And Alasdair's desperation to keep hold of Gwyneth broke my heart for him.

Ms Sinclair makes the Highlands of Scotland come to life through her writing. It's authentic and puts your right in the moment.

I highly recommend this book!

Vonda Sinclair writes Scottish historical romance as if she lived it and loved it. She drew me into a world of kilts, castles, peat fires and brawny men with lovely brogues so easily, it made me wonder if there were otherworldly charms attached to this book. The romance between the determined heroine and fiercely appealing hero is both heart-warming and scorch-your-socks hot. If you enjoy Scottish historicals in any way, this one is worth the read.

In Vonda Sinclair's My Fierce Highlander, we find Gwyneth Carswell, the English widow of a Scottish brute, searching for survivors of a MacGrath-MacIrwin clan skirmish. She finds one lone man alive and he isn't from her clan. With the help of her reluctant friend and fellow healer, she brings him back to the small cottage she shares with the friend Mora and her own five year old son and tends to his wounds. While doing so, the young widow finds herself inexplicably drawn to the rather handsome Scot.

Laird Alasdair MacGrath finds himself in a precarious position when he awakens the following day from a fever due to his injuries. He has no weapons, no clothing and is on enemy land.If he is found by the MacIrwins, he will surely be killed and his presence also puts Gwyneth, her son and Mora is danger. When he is introduced to the healer Gwyneth and her son Rory, he is wary of their loyalties and lies about his identity. He also finds rather quickly that he is attracted to the widow, even after he realizes that she was the wife of the man who murdered his father. Alasdair returns as soon as he is able to his lands and people, leaving the young widow behind, but very much still in his thoughts.

Tragedy strikes while Gwyneth and Rory are away from the cottage. Evidently the evil Laird Donald MacIrwin discovers that she helped the enemy and the cottage was burned. Gwyneth takes Rory and escapes on foot to the only possible place for her to go for help, the MacGrath holdings. The MacGrath takes her in, but there are many complications in doing so. Will Gwyneth be able to keep her attraction to the Laird at bay? Will she be able to find a place for her son and herself that keeps her safe from the MacIrwin clan?

Six years ago the English Lady Gwyneth Carswell was banished from her home and position by her father to the Scottish Highlands and a distantly related clan, whose laird is an abusive and dangerous man. In this harsh surroundings and inhuman conditions Gwyneth has devoted all her time to the upbringing of her son and her talent as a healer. One day, after a skirmish, she heads out to find a survivor and convinces her friend Mora to help the Highlander, although she knows that he belongs to an enemy clan. She saves Alasdiar MacGrath but her distant relative Donald MacIrwin takes revenge by killing her best friend Mora and tries to catch Gwyneth and her young son who are trying desperately to reach MacGrath land in order to ask the laird to return the favor and save now their lives. Alasdiar grants them protection not only to return the favor but mostly because he feels a deep attraction towards the secretive Gwyneth and because he believes that Rory, her son, needs a father.

Straight forward and well arranged plot. At certain points slightly predictable, however, without being boring.

The main characters are as they should be for a Highland Romance: a super sexy and adorable Highlander, a strong woman who can face him at the same level and interesting sub-characters.

Nice read if you like this genre.
