Our h throws herself at our H constantly and I wanted her to be stronger as far as her relationship with the H was. Oh, don't get me wrong, she was ferocious in everything else. Our H was a very hard character to like in how he treated our h. He tells her things he did in France and she just excepts it, doesn't get angry. Then through the last part of the book he pushes her away to protect her, of course our h doesn't realize this. Hard to feel a connection to a couple when they never acted as one until the very end.
There is foreplay and lovemaking outside marriage and because I didn't feel a connection, it was just sex. Also, mildly described within marriage.
We do get HEA, no cliffhanger except for the relationship with her sister and a man she cares for. Their story is the next one in the series.
The middle had some tense and suspenseful moments that raised my rating. I fell in love with this author in her Highland Gift, Highland Seer and Highland Healer stories and highly recommend them. This was just ok for me. (ljb)
Willa is dedicated to the history of Scotland and her vivid vision of the Highlands are a joy to read!
Review by Georgianna Simpson
His Highland Love is a historical romance and is book two in her His Highland Heart Series The opening scene is in St. Andrews and the year is 1411.
Kenneth Brodie is our male lead. He had run away to France some years ago, heartbroken by the refusal of James Rose to let him marry his youngest daughter. The two were in love and he had offered for her hand in marriage, only to be told she was too young to marry. However, her father soon betrothed her to another clan leader. This news caused Kenneth to snap and thinking his love was married to another, he ran to France to fight in wars. He learned much and became a fierce warrior as well as wiser about life.
When Kenneth returned to Scotland, his friend and Laird Iain Brodie was angry he’d run away and punished him by sending him as the clan’s token hostage as demanded by the Duke of Albany. He was sent to Stirling, but later was moved to St. Andrews and his clan did not know where he was or when he’d be returned.
The lead female in this book is Cat or Catherine Rose, daughter of James Rose their clan laird. Her mother passed away while she was a child and she was raised by her father and her sisters. After her heart was broken by his refusal of her love for Kenneth, she was betrothed to three others…each failing for one reason or another. She always thought Kenneth would find a way to take her from here, but found he’d left for France. She’d had enough of this and still dreaming of Kenneth, she ran away. Her sisters helped her get safely away, keeping her from an unwanted marriage. She ran to St. Andrews to some family friends and left her father a note telling him why she left, but not where she was going.
That’s the basic gist of the beginning. Author Willa Blair is an award winning author and does a really good telling of the stories. Readers are also granted a small look at Highland confrontations and wars, the politics that was rampant in those times. Many Lairds married their daughters and even sons off for alliances, some worked…some did not.
If you love romantic highland stories of warriors and danger, love and honor, you’ll find this story intriguing as well as enjoyable. The characters and their motives are complicated with obligations warring with emotions. We’re treated to some secondary characters that are equally interesting and will be featured in future novels. I thought it was an interesting look at how daughters were beginning to find a way around the arranged marriage thing and beginning to follow their hearts. The sisters trying to help each other by manipulating their stubborn father was also interesting. Not that the practice of arranging marriages would end anytime soon.
