“The Reluctant Highlander” is one of my first Amanda Scott titles, but I can tell you it won't be the last. I really loved the romance and relationship between Ormiston and MacFinlagh. It was a fabulous time getting to know them both and each person’s situation. I really loved the story and plot and I think the author did a wonderful job with all the history. The adventure / story unfolded wonderfully. “The Reluctant Highlander” wasn’t too fast and not too slow.
I really hope to see another story with these characters. I didn't want this to end. “The Reluctant Highlander” is a great book that you won't be able to put down.
An uncertain bride looks for love with a man as wild and mysterious as his Highland home in this new Scottish romance from a USA Today–bestselling author.
Ordinarily, Lady Fiona Ormiston wouldn’t think of forming an alliance with an ungroomed, barbaric Highlander, despite the protection he offers. But now, by request of the king, Sir Adham MacFinlagh, a brazen stranger and outsider unlike anyone she has met before, is to be her husband. Torn from solitude and the comfort of her family to make a home with the rugged knight, Fiona surrenders to Adham’s powerfully passionate—and shockingly tender—touch, only to discover her new husband’s family ties may lie with an enemy of the king.
A sense of duty may have brought Adham to the marriage bed, but it’s his powerful feelings for his beautiful, willful wife that will be his undoing. Ultimately, the bold knight will have to decide: Does his allegiance lie with his blood ties to the man who hopes to bring down the king or with the bride who has stolen his heart?
