Lady Sybil Lacey has traveled to Scotland with her best friend Lady Margaret Somerville. Lady Margaret is marrying The McKinnon Laird Duncan. Over the two weeks before the wedding Lady Sybil begins to overcome her prejudice and dislike of the Scottish people and there ways. She learns through her gradual romance with Liam MacBride The Laird of the MacBride clan that all she has heard about Scottish Lairds and Scottish people is not quite true. Liam has also has to overcome his prejudice of The English. His mother's intense hatred of anything English especially English titled Lady's has taught him to hate and pre judge the English. Until he meets and falls head over heals in love with Lady Sybil.
The Highlander's Choice touches on issues of prejudice and pre conceived notions passed on by parents about other people. This story is very well done and very moving. It is also, very well written with lively believable characters. I loved how all the myths that the H/H believed are proven to be ridiculous and what they had been taught to believe was based oh hateful people and family that hated people they didn't understand. Believe me I know a little of what the Scottish suffered at the hands of the British. So I do understand how the hatred on the Scottish side could happen. But Liam and Sybil overcome all of this. They are one of the best written couples I have read in awhile!!
The Romance between Liam and Sybil is lovely, sexy, sensual and believable. I loved both of these characters!!
I Highly Recommend The Highlander's Choice by Callie Hutton!!
Prejudice starts at home. I personally think Sybil was just uneducated on other cultures, because her family is unique when it comes to differences. However, Liam's family has years of prejudice and his mother didn't help the situation. Personally, I wanted to strangled the woman. Oh my goodness, there are few characters I want to cause bodily harm and she's one of them. She was a bitch. She makes Cinderella's stepmother look like a saint. Awful person and she made no attempts to be nice. I have to give Sybil props because I would have said screw this I'm out of here. Sybil was trooper when it Liam's mother's torture. Poor Liam was walking a fine line he just wanted to keep the peace.
Anyway, I enjoyed The Highlander's Choice, because it was good story that showed two characters overcoming prejudice and finding what matter most, love. Even though love is the answer to overcome prejudice, it's not always easy. I did enjoy Sybil and Liam's relationship because it didn't come easy, and they had to work through their issues before they found their happy-ever-after.
