Alexander was the more serious of the twins and maybe that is why I enjoyed book 1 more. Don't get me wrong, it is still a great read. I loved the secondary character's so much, Angus and Heather brought so much humor and added to the story. I can only hope the author has these two in mind for their own stories as the series progresses.
I was hoping Angus would fall in love with one of the twins sisters, but I think the mysterious lady from the tavern will be his love interest.
We do get HEA, and at the end of the story a few months into the future for both the brother's and their wives which I enjoyed. No cliffhanger's, lovemaking within marriage, very mild descriptive.
There is some suspense which added to the story, plus romance that builds slowly. We have misunderstanding as to how each felt about the other and the true reason our h was sent home.
I recommend this author and this series. (ljb)
Madeline is whisked away during a tournament by her brother to return to her father's castle. Her duty is to marry the winner of the tournament her father has planned. Her heart was left behind with a mysterious Shadow Guardian, Alexander, who travels to find her to make sure she is well. Their love blooms is such a heart-warming way, those page-turns become unnoticed. I ready nearly 40% of the book in one sitting. Truly an awesome read.
I enjoyed the plot, it's a follow through from the first book when Madeline is taken. While this book can stand on its own, it does tie up the end of the first book more and also leaves opportunity for future books to come.
Madeline is forced to come home and even worse...is displayed like a trophy for her father's tournament. Alex, the man she loves but can't came to rescue her only to find himself sucked up into the tournament at his own peril. Their love is the sweet taste of forbidden and they are their own worst enemies just as much as the surprises in the books hold enemies for them.
I really can't wait to read Angus's story, which is Madeline's brother in this book- he finds trouble in all the right...I mean wrong ways.
A Shadow's Kiss is full of terrific characters and descriptions that come up off the page and allow you to escape in a world that has already come to pass and yet still holds a candle for us.
If you enjoy historical romance, Strong leading females, and adventure, you will enjoy this read.
Alexander, a guardian appointed to her by the Baron, follows her to her family's home. Once he is assured that she is safe, he plans to leave and return to his post with the Baron. However, he has a change of heart once he lays eyes on Madeline again. Madeline's brother Angus convinces Alexander to enter the tournament, after he realizes his sister is indeed in love with him.
The tournament is rife with angry clansmen who don't want to lose to anyone, especially Alexander whose family is from the lowlands. Alexander proves himself to be an excellent swordsmen, though not as adept at throwing tree stumps. Whether or not he can outwit and outmaneuver the other clansmen vying for Madeline's hand in marriage I'll never tell!
I recommend this book to readers who love Highlander themed books, and individuals who can't resist a good old fashioned love story. If you're on the edge about buying this book, let me assure you that the female characters are not hot-house flowers, rather they are surprisingly tough for the times. This includes Madeline's little sister Heather, who can wield a knife and scale castle walls better than an adult! The love interest is tough when he has to be, loyal and tender when he needs to be - in my opinion, a perfect leading man.
I received this ACR in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Madeline Campbell was a great heroine! She didn’t sit back and let her life be dictated. She was a perfect challenge for Alex! Alex was a great hero also! He was a perfect combination of strength and vulnerability. I thought they were a great and fun couple!
This books is a mixture of history, romance and adventure. Blacketer is able to perfectly balance all three and all three of these themes are fulfilling. I really enjoyed this novel about the Scottish Highlands.
