A Saint at the Highland Court by Celeste Barclay is book six in The Highland Ladies series. This series is a spinoff of Barclay’s The Clan Sinclair series.
Lady-in-waiting at the Highland Court, Blair Sutherland and Hardwin Cameron have been friends since childhood, but now Hardwin is in desperate need of assistance. He’s been unexpectedly elevated to the position of clan chief and is woefully unprepared. Blair offers to help and now they’re developing an intense romantic relationship while trying to defeat the unknown forces seeking to destroy Hardwin and the Cameron clan.
A Saint at the Highland Court is an excellent read. It is as well-written as previous installments in this series, with characters as well-rounded, well-developed and vibrant as the previous cast. Ms. Barclay smartly maintains the series continuity. The suspenseful plot is compelling and held my attention throughout. The author has taken some creative license with dates and historical characters and has fictionalized some historical accounts, but the spirit of the time period is maintained. There’s some explicit content, but the series just keeps getting better and I give this installment 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to readers of romantic suspense and medieval romance.
