Darach was a good hero - at the beginning, I wasn't sure about him. But as the book progressed, I really started to like him and by the end, I loved him. This man was willing to give up everything for love and then that love turned and stuck a knife in his heart.
Larena starts out as a good heroine, but by the middle of the book she became too wishy washy for me. She was willing to believe Darach was using her, that he was a bully and that she had lost more than he had. She was told by more than one person that her father was not the man she believed him to be and she knew he had kept things from her. But she flat out refused to believe Darach's explanation of what really happened. At that point, I didn't believe she was worthy of Darach.
When he walks away from her, my heart broke for him. Larena did not deserve his love and nothing she did after changed my mind. She waited a MONTH to go after him - a month! If it took her that long to figure out she was wrong - then she is stupid and deserves to marry Gregory.
I didn't love this book - but it was a quick read and I am glad I read it. I will definitely read Logan's book and seriously hope his heroine is a better woman than Larena.
The story starts in 1730 Scotland. Larena Campbell, a Scottish heiress, is escorted to Leathan castle to save her father, Fitzroy Campbell, from certain death. He was accused of being a Jacobite. While traveling with the English soldiers, she is hurt in an ambush. While scouting for their laird, Angus the Lion of Kinloch Castle, Darach MacDonald and his brother Logan hear the sounds of a battle not far in the distance. Upon reaching the battle site they find much carnage. Darach spots something odd in the foliage and he finds a bold, fierce and beautiful woman, unconscious on their lands. Darach then decides to escort her to the castle where her father is being held prisoner with Logan along as his backup. He knows that she is the daughter of the chief of his enemy clan and betrothed to another man. He will soon become fascinated with this defiant heiress. He is having a hard time controlling his emotions because he is hiding a secret from his past.
Along their journey, spending so much time together, Larena and Darach learn to trust each other, share secrets and discover a whole new meaning to friendship and passion. Larena will admit that Darach is truly a brave and honorable highlander and a great protector. She also learns that she wouldn't be able to live without him.
Larena and Darach's adventures are filled with passion, danger, action and lots of twists and turns! This 4th novel in the Highlander Series will be everything you have been expecting and more!!!
I did like both Darach and Larena from the beginning. As is typical in most Highland stories, they both come with a lot of clan baggage and complicated family situations. I found myself hoping that they could work it all out, with a limited amount of violence, and attain their HEA.
Larena must deal with her feelings for Darach while trying to do her best to save her father. The two situations do not always work well together. In the course of their adventures, there is the requisite "bad guy", in the form of an English soldier. Larena must decide who is telling the truth and who can really be trusted among Darach, her father and her "betrothed".
As I said, there is a "down" for me when Larena seems to be influenced by the wrong individuals and her relationship with Darach suffers. I was worried that their separation would go on too long, but the author skips a head to the resolution without making us read too much about the time the couple is apart.
The ending is satisfactory and realistic for a Highland romance set in the complicated time of Jacobites and English occupation.
Epilogue Whore Alert: None! There is a next book that deals with Darach's brother.. hoping we get some news on Darach and Larena from that.
