Book Review

‘How to Marry a Royal Highlander’ by Vanessa Kelly

htmarh vkSTORY: Illegitimate yet thoroughly irresistible, the Renegade Royals are leaving behind their careers as daring spies for the greatest adventure of all…

At sixteen, Alasdair Gilbride, heir to a Scottish earldom, fled the Highlands and an arranged betrothal. Ten years later, Alasdair must travel home to face his responsibilities. It’s a task that would be much easier without the distracting presence of the most enticing woman he’s ever met…

After one escapade too many, Eden Whitney has been snubbed by the ton. The solution: rusticating in the Scottish wilderness, miles from all temptation. Except, of course, for brawny, charming Alasdair. The man is so exasperating she’d likely kill him before they reach the border—if someone else weren’t trying to do just that. Now Eden and Alasdair are plunging into a scandalous affair with his life and her reputation at stake—and their hearts already irreparably lost…

REVIEW: Vanessa Kelly continues her Renegade Royals series in which all our heroes have been born bastards to the men of royalty. These men are loyal to each other and one by one is leaving the spy profession and committing themselves to matrimony.

This is the fourth story, and I think so far, my favorite. I think that’s because this one moved fast and it had lighter characters and by extension the plot didn’t feel as heavy either. The chemistry between the two was hot and banter laugh-out-loud funny.

The secondary character of Eden’s mother, Lady Reese, had me grin every time she showed up in the story.

All in all, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I highly recommend it.
