Fantastic book, wonderfully written. I was so drawn into the story that I plan on going back to the beginning with The Clan Sinclair and The Pirates of the Isles before I read the rest of The Highland Ladies. Hardwin never expected to become Laird of his clan and several members of the clan are causing strife. Blair his childhood friend has been at court for years and is lonely. When they find each other at court they find childhood friendship has grown to love. Can Hardwin with Blair's help put out everything as should be in his castle and clan. A must read, this is a book you will tell your book friends about it is that good.
