Hannah Dounreay has no time for suitors who only seem interested in her family’s land, which she manages as well as any man. If she marries, she wants to be loved for the educated, independent woman she is. But when a strong, silent–and spectacularly handsome–Highlander saves her from a violent attack, her heart is stirred. Who is this man? And if he asks for Hannah’s hand, will she be able to resist him?
Love is the most powerful weapon of all.
Alexander Lochlannach, Laird of Dunnet, has no time to lose. The Highlands are in an uproar as clans battle for land–without mercy–and Alexander can’t afford to fall for the wildly attractive, strong-willed Hannah. What’s more, he has a desperate secret, one that could destroy them both. But as their attraction turns into an all-consuming passion, Alexander has no choice but to prove to Hannah that he’s the only man for her–body and soul…
REVIEW: As I enter the third month of #Droughtlander (state of being as I await the second season of #Outlander TV series, which is on hiatus until Spring 2016) I’m realizing that my Kindle is getting filled with all these Highlander stories, and this one just happens to be right on top.
I’ve never read Sabrina York before, and this was such a great book that I’ll be happy to check her backlist and see if I can find a few more stories by her.
It appears that this is the first book in her brand new series Untamed Highlanders and this story is of an interesting romance between Hannah and Alexander.
Hannah is a very strong character and I liked the fact that she was a capable woman who did her best to take care of the household and her family. She doesn’t see herself as beautiful as her sisters are, but she longs to be loved for herself and not her dowry. Enter Alexander Lochlannach, Laird of Dunnet , a friend to her father and a very complex man who’s carrying a whole lot of baggage from his childhood.
The chemistry that the author creates between these two is palpable from their first encounter and you just can’t help but root for these two as you’re following their story.
You’ll also be introduced to many secondary characters and they’ll be as complex and entertaining as our leads. You’ll meet Fergus, Fiona, Susana, Lachlan, and last but certainly not least, Dermid.
Seriously, if you’re looking for some Highland love to fill your days between now and spring 2016 when #Outlander returns, you may as well pick this one up. It’s sweet, heart wrenchingly emotional and well written. You can’t go wrong with a man in a kilt!
