Medieval Romance is not a genre that I usually read. That said this book by Julie Johnstone was a addictive read that I enjoyed very much. This is also the first Julie Johnstone book that I have read. EBooks have opened up a whole new world to romance readers in that we can now read many different authors that we have never read. Ok on with my review.
Brigette Maclean is a highland lass who would rather be a lad. She wants to help her brother protect her Clan from the English and rival Clans. She is stubborn, opinionated and beautiful.
Lachlan MacLeod is a warrior of immense size and skill. He has fought in many battles and has a loyal heart and will do anything to protect his Clan.
One day Brigette disregards her brother's wishes and ventures out to the forest to hunt a boar. While searching for the boar she is attacked by outlaws. Lachlan hears her screams and comes to the rescue, but not until Brigette is forcefully kissed by one of the outlaws. To help Brigette erase the distaste from her assault he kisses her. The kiss is a life changing event and will change their lives forever.
Now there is a lot going on in this book. There are many different characters that have had their story told in the first book in this series and those that will probably have a book of their own. What I really liked in this book is the setting, the history and all the accurate tensions and politics that permeated this time period in history.
I really loved the twists and turns and how the story and the characters all had specific part in the story. There is no unnecessary characters or secondary stories that are not relative to the story. If you have read my reviews before you know I only give you a brief outline of the story and characters and no spoilers. Also there are brawny good looking Highlanders in this book, and who doesn't love that?
I would reccommend this book to readers who love a marvellous Scottish Romance.
