The story has the most wonderful characters! Gavin is a true hero in every sense of the word and Kate is a beautiful human being! I’ve enjoyed all the characters in this wonderful Camelot. They are all well written, complex and amazing people despite their circumstances. And then there are the evil villains which you will surely want to see get their just due. I love the storyline and the plot runs smoothly throughout the story. Well these two people who’ve built walls around their hearts and wronged by life and those who should have protected them find their way to one another? It was delightful to see Kate and Gavin dance around one another at the house party as each sought to accomplish their mission and avoid losing their hearts.
This is a heartwarming, heartbreaking story of those less fortunate bonded together by their pain and desire to survive against those who would take advantage of the les fortunate. It’s a story about family and love for one another. I love story is beautiful and the chemistry is just fantastic! The author does a wonderful job with the dialogue and her imagery and descriptions allow you to feel the emotions the story incites. A must read!
Thank you so much Ms. Bailey for this wonderful story of family born from love and the beautiful love story of two well deserving people.
To Save A Highland Sinner is book three in Bailey’s new Wicked Highland Misfit’s series. This book’s story is intertwined with book one, To Have A Highland Thief. Although, it truly can be read as a stand-alone work.
I enjoyed getting to know Gavin Davidson and Kate Mitchell. I thought the characters were well developed and complex. The pace is brisk and kept me reading to the end. There are several steamy passages. “Her breath caught. ‘Ye are so lovely.’ His gaze penetrated hers, burning hot with a yearning that matched her own. The hand in hers let go and curled around her side. He pulled her flush to his tight frame, and she nearly moaned as tension wound tight in her body, recognizing the need in his.” Well done! I have enjoyed this series.
