His hate runs deep for her. Will his love run just as deep?
Craven of the Clan MacCara is a fierce Highland warrior, fighting endless battles and conquering his foe, but there is nothing the mighty warrior can do to save his wife and unborn child. He can, however, make the person responsible for their deaths suffer for it. He had nearly taken the healer's life that tragic day, his hands having been at her throat. To his regret, he let her live and warned her never to return. He has lived with that regret for the past year, but no more. She has dared to return home and he intends to make her suffer before he takes her life. He is called the beast for a reason and he intends to release the beast on her. Nothing will stop him. Nothing… or so he thinks.
Espy has no place to go but home… to her grandmother, the one person who loves her. She has no choice, for what awaits her there is far less frightening than what she is running from. She is a healer, wise in the old ways and knowledgeable in the ways of a physician, her father having taught her. She is hopeful that Craven MacCara, a beast of a man, might find it in his heart to forgive her, since a day has not gone by that guilt, misplaced as it is, has not weighed heavily upon her. If not, then death will be her only salvation… or so she thinks.
Truths begin to surface, lives are threatened, secrets are discovered, and love finds a way to heal the heart, and Espy discovers what it means… To Love A Highlander.
Escape to the Highlands, late 1400s, in this historical romance, book one in the Highland Warrior Trilogy.
I enjoyed the storyline with the plot twists and of course the happily ever after.
Unfortunately, the storyline had too many slow parts that need to be removed to make the story flow better. Other than that, I enjoyed the book.
To love a highlander
You want to feel sorry for and slap craven at the same time. He loses his wife and child and puts the blame on the healer. Then years later he still blames her but falls in love with her. So as you guess he don’t treat her the best. Still a good book just wish Craven wouldn’t of been so abusive.
I read this book in less than 24 hours so it definitely keeps you interested. Some of the dialogue was stilted at times but I liked the storyline.
