Scottish Highlands Historical Romance
I have read from this author before and just fell in love with her books. I will admit that I had a hard time getting into this one until the end….it almost became a chore. I usually wouldn’t have kept up with it so far…but the plot was decent, and I just had to see how it turned out. Even though toward the end I started to really enjoy the story, I found myself skimming almost through the majority of the book…which is a shame. Also I think the strong accents in the book, didn’t exactly help any, it takes a while to get used to. Since they are very overly strong, it can be really hard to understand, so it takes a lot longer to read. However I did like the characters, but overall it didn’t stand out to me as much as her other books. I think I had high expectations so I got really disappointed. Even though there were a few things that I enjoyed, it didn’t sing to me, so I was frustrated quite a lot since it never takes me three days to get a book read. Hopefully the next one that I read of hers will be better.
Minstrels had been playing music in the minstrel gallery from the time the first guests of the new laird had entered the ancient castle hall to take dinner with him.
“Don’t try again to tell me my business. I–“
Grabbing her by the upper arms, he gave her a shake that broke off her reply, making her eyes widen and her lips part in shock.
They looked invitingly soft and rosy.
He had intended to tell her just what he though of her behavior. Instead, without another thought, he pulled her close and kissed her hard.
