It's cast of characters consists of the hero Nicholas fitz Hugh born out of violence in By a Scottish Mother who couldn't stand the sight of him as he grew up looking exactly like the man who raped her and an English father who beat Nicholas up the first time he met him again another parent telling him he never wanted to see him again. Somehow he proved himself and became a favorite and heartless favorite spy for King Edward Longshanks of England.
The heroine Rowan MacGregor, who is orphaned at a young age with no memory of her parents death,and come to live with the Mac Alpin Clan. The chief Kenneth is her Uncle and his wife Lady Elspeth current guardian of the Targe an ancient powerful relic and protector of the clan. Also it is believed the next guardian is to be their daughter Jeanette, who is also Rowan's cousin, although they all grew up like sisters as also the youngest flirty daughter Scotia.
There is also another evil spy Archie who has been Nicolas spy partner for the past ten years. Not a nice guy is all I can say. Another thing I love about Ms.Wittig's books is she always has wonderful secondary characters as Mac Alpin warriors Duncan and grumpy illiam who both pulled at my heartstrings. Of course Nicholas who is sent to steal the Targe although he has no idea what it is or does. He does eventually switch teams and sees his evil ways are wrong as he falls in love with the beautiful Rowan. Due to the fact he sneaks in the castle on a string of lies and when that can of worms opens up Rowan is broken hearted and the chief wants to hang Nicholas! Can he be trusted,saved or forgiven? What is the Targe so powerful believed to protect the clan for so many generations? You will have no read thismfabulous book to get those answers.
I loved this book so many clever facets which is truly amazing. I can't wait to read the next two books in this series -Highlander Avenged and Highlander Redeemed. As always another brilliant enchanting read and I truly loved every page of Highlander Betrayed.
I loved the way the author built the relationship between the main characters, it was really believable and you could see how the H changed because of his love for the h. I loved the fact that the book wasn't full gratuitous sex scenes and that they waited until they were married. Too many historicals are spoilt by unnecessary sex scenes that are off-putting and detract from the story. I like using my imagination and this author has allowed us the freedom to enjoy the true romance of the book.
Rowan MacGregor,, orphaned niece of the chief of the MacAlpins, is worried because her aunt, the Guardian of the Targe, is very ill and the protection for the clan is fading. Nicholas fitz Hugh, half-English and half-Scottish, is a cunning spy sent by the English king to steal the Targe.
I liked this story because it was well written and it was an excellent introduction to the women of the MacAlpin clan and the many challenges that they face.
