This is a beautiful love story and one like many, has its shares of ups and downs. Flora has been hurt by Gavin in the past so she no longer trusts him. There are many twists and turns and it keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. The characters are will described and become familiar and personal. I felt myself in the story with each one and could picture it all in my mind. The author is extremely talented and put a lot of research into the history of Scotland during that era.
I enjoy learning history, and this was a pleasant way of understanding that time. How hard for the folk back then. Catching and eating food over a fire, without all of the trimmings we enjoy today. The tender love between man and woman. Flora being skilled at archery, her strength and courage.
I loved this book.
There's nothing better than a wonderful love story. Every romance has its' bad times and its' good times. Flora has a hard time trusting Gavin since he hurt her deeply before. Flora was a talented woman and strong. Gavin was also strong which made their relationship very difficult. Far from perfect, these two people you can relate to as the story evolves. It took a strong woman back then since things were very hard. The weak didn't survive. Once you start reading you can't let go since the author gives you a lot to want to know. The twists and turns are like a web and as you turn the pages you want to untangle it. The author lets you get to know the characters as the descriptions are very vivid and the characters become like someone you know. As you read you get the feeling you are right along side each one. The history of Scotland comes through as the author certainly did her research. The author put the story out in a way that it was interesting to find out things about Scotland and the time period. It didn't drag you down with too many facts, just enough to keep you interested. Things weren't easy for anyone but they persevered. The love story as it unfolds is breath taking. This was definitely a "LOVE" story, with a sweetness about it. Some of the characters carry forth from the first book, A Highland Pearl but even if you haven't read it, you can totally enjoy this second book. (I would suggest reading the first book, though. That way you get to know the characters and setting better)
I received a copy of this book from the author and PUYB and voluntarily decided to review it.
Good to the very end, Highland Ruby is one of those books that I really couldn't put down.
There were many difficulties to overcome with flora and Gavin relationship, makes for a very exciting historical Scotland story of love and redemption. I have enjoyed Brenda B. Taylor's books, I will be waiting for her next one.
Flora Vass has lost her love to the New World. He preferred fighting savages than having a life back in Scotland with her. She has lost one man before on the fight, another one now to adventurous life. She cannot afford any more losses. She has two boys to support, one from her late husband, who has grown to a man of 13 years old, another little one, that was in her womb when his father left the country. Therefore, she decides to live her life, under chief Munro’s lead, and betroth to Iain MacKay, the son and heir of Chief Calum MacKay, to bring peace between the two clans.
Gavin Munro returns to Scotland and Fàrdach Castle to face his brother, Chief Andrew, regain Flora’s heart, and meet his son. He had left five years ago, tempted by his brother’s new wife, a lovely lady that had stolen his heart as well. Not wishing to disrespect his brother and chief of the Munro clan, choses to go on an adventure out to the New World. He has return a changed man. He now believes in God and prays for His support but also to thank Him.
The story evolves in the Scottish highlands of 1513. It is the story of the warrior that is destructed by the means of beauty, but will honor his code and his chief and will try to avoid conflict. The warrior’s honor back in the days was of great importance. It depicts to today’s Code of conduct and the honor found within all humble people. And that is rather rare nowadays…
The book also speaks about true love. The lone woman that truly loves one, but is bound to not expect to see him again. The joy of the soul and heart when a loved one is found again. But also, the determination to win a loved one back and not spend any more time regretting the lost time.
Brenda B. Taylor writes historical romances featuring strong women and men in her Highland Treasures series. “A Highland Ruby” is the second book in the series, though it can be read independently. To take a sneak peak on the book and get to know of the author, check this Chill and read post.
