Book Description

The fearless warrior has finally met his match . . .

When Alyce Bunnock's father tried to marry her off, she fled, taking shelter at Everagis Abbey, donning a nun's habit, and renaming herself Sister Terese. But when Lachlan Sinclare arrives to restore her to her family, the safety of the convent is shattered. At the sight of the handsome Highlander, Alyce fears for her freedom—and weakens with desire.

Lachlan has been tasked with finding shrewish Alyce, but can think only of beautiful Terese. Yet with every forbidden touch, Lachlan comes closer to the truth. And once her secret is revealed, Alyce must choose between the independence she's always craved and the tempting man she cannot resist.

About the Author

Part of the fun in writing, Donna Fletcher admits, is doing the research. But it is with her characters that she has the most fun. She loves giving life to fresh characters and feels their excitement as they face the pleasures and pitfalls of falling in love.

Donna's own adventures have taken her to England, Ireland, and Scotland. She has walked the fields where battles were fought centuries ago, toured haunted castles, stood where beheadings were commonplace, explored the mystic mounds of long ago, and collected a plethora of memories and research that will live long in her heart and mind. She also loves exploring and photographing old abandoned homes, and she often takes long walks in the woods with camera in hand. She feels her life is rich and full, having three terrific sons, two fantastic daughters-in-law, an endless supply of friends, a loving dog, and a crazy, black, one-eyed cat named Bear.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Angel and the Highlander October 27, 2009
By M. Nix
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lachlan Sinclare has been sent by Lord Bunnock to return his daughter to her home. Lady Alyce has decided to avoid marriage and has run away to an abbey. She doesn't want to marry the man her father has chosen for her and would rather assume the persona of Terese, a nun than of Alyce, a wife. Lachlan just wants to return Alyce to her family - he never expected to fall for a beautiful woman of God.

On the blurb for this novel, Alyce is described as shrewish. The blurb was being nice I am sad to say. She was not at all likeable as a character and more than once I just wanted Lachlan to leave her where she stood. Stubborness in a heroine is a great trait, stubbornness to the point that the female lead becomes a pain to read, then enough is enough. Lachlan deserved better.

Donna Fletcher just didn't satisfy my historical romance loving soul with The Angel and the Highlander. I would suggest skipping this book and finding one where the lead characters actually connect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading! June 27, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first two books so far in this series have been the best. "Return of the Rogue" with Cavan, and "Under the Highlander's Spell" with Artair (my favorite). I have to agree with one of the other reviewers here that there was something about Alyse that I just didn't like. In this day and age it's easy to understand strong, intelligent women, but maybe not quite so in medieval times, where women were traded like baseball cards and expected to produce sons for heirs. I felt there was something false about Alyse not talking to Lachlan about the mercenaries - especially when she goes to meet one of them, and we discover her basic impulse for doing so is to find out how everyone is doing at Everagis. Sounds like betrayal to me. Five stars though, the writing is good and story is solid. If your looking for a great warrior check out Judy Garwoods "The Prize" - there's something about Royce that gets under your skin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Third in series August 6, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As Donna Fletcher's series about four Highland brothers - Cavan, Artair, Lachlan and Ronan - continues, we focus now on Lachlan. The brothers' search for the missing Ronan continues as a theme through this book, but most of the focus is on Lachlan as he is sent to bring back wayward Alyce Bunnock from a nunnery. When Lachlan arrives at Everagis Abbey where the nuns live he discovers there are only five of them left, the others - including Alyce Bunnock - having died.

Lachlan and his men decide they must stay to protect the nuns from mercenaries whilst they send a message to the church authorities to ask what to do with the few women left. Unfortunately for Lachlan, the more time he spends with Sister Terese, the more he sees her in a rather un-nun-like manner.

Terese knows that she is hiding rather a lot from Lachlan and his men; firstly, that the five women aren't nuns after all, secondly that her identity as Alyce Bunnock needs to be hidden or she will be forced home to wed the man her father requires, and thirdly that she has struck a bargain with the mercenaries, despite not seeing their mysterious leader. But as Lachlan and Terese/Alyce fall in love, he has to learn to trust her and give her freedom and she has to discover whether she can leave Everagis to be with Lachlan.

This book was enjoyable in that the story flowed well and was easy to read. However I found the central 'difficulty' of the plot, the fact that Alyce feared Lachlan wouldn't like her when he discovered she was the shrewish Alyce, very unlikely. In fact, the second half of the book felt more and more unrealistic at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderfully amusing May 2, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lord Bunnock sends Lachlan Sinclare to escort his runaway daughter Lady Alyce home. To avoid marriage to a dolt selected by her father, Alyce fled to Everagis Abbey. At the convent, Lachlan is informed that Alyce died and that the sisters are in peril from outlaws. Lachlan vows to help the nuns, but is preoccupied with beautiful Sister Terese, who acts so different than the other occupants.

To hide from her sire, Alyce took the identity of a dead nun. She fears her attraction to Lachlan will prove her undoing. Alyce also believes she and the nuns are quite capable of protecting themselves from the bandits. As they fall in what he assumes is taboo love, she must soon decide between her independence and temptation.

The newest late sixteenth century Sinclare Brothers Scottish romance (see RETURN OF THE ROGUE) is a wonderfully amusing tale as the hero struggles between desire and sin while the sassy sexy "sister" struggles between desire and independence. The story line is fast-paced and very humorous as Alyce's web of deceit implodes by her falling in love. Fans will enjoy the latest Sinclare entry due to the lead duo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay March 12, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This could have been better. Alyce is a young woman her father is forcing into an arranged marriage, as was the way of things in that era. She instead enters a convent that is really a shelter for displaced women and fakes her death so nobody will come for her and force her to marry. She undertakes running the place, essentially becoming the other women's leader and changes her name to Terese.. Lachlan is assigned the task by her father to retrieve her, forcibly if necessary, from the convent but once he arrives, he is told of her (fake) death. He immediately is smitten with Terese who is really Alyce. As another reviewer said, shrew was a complete understatement. I understand she doesn't want to marry someone she does not love and wants to make her own life decisions. She was not responsible nor mature enough to do so even if she could. Number one, she jumps into bed with Lachlan shortly after meeting him and then continues to do so, knowing it would endanger her secret AND get her pregnant. And, **********spoiler alert********

She deceives him with her identity the whole time, while telling him she loves him. Nor does she tells him of the information she has that may pertain to his missing brother Ronan who he desperate to find. When it is time for Lachlan and his men to leave, he wants her to marry him and take her home with him. She refuses, saying she won't give up her freedom and her home. She is miserable and yet she DESERVES it as it is her choices and actions solely responsible. I cannot fathom what Lachlan saw in her, she never once thought of him or his feelings. Lachlan leaves heartbroken, and returns home where he reports to her father Alyce died. But once her father starts talking about Alyce's personality and appearance, Lachlan realizes he was duped.
