Five star Scottish romance!
Reviewed in the United States on March 28, 2018
Five-star read! Loved, loved, loved Highland Promise by Alyson McLayne. Darach is a man who has been betrayed by a woman. Years ago, he was engaged to his now greatest enemy's sister, peace should have been achieved upon their marriage, but she decided to betray him. Darach's father died and his clan was now locked in a feud.
Near enemy lands, Darach and his company rides upon his enemy traveling with an unconscious woman slumped over the side of a horse. He is furious that a woman has suffered and decides to rescue her.
Caitlin has been forced into a relationship with a monster by her guardian uncle. She has been beaten, drugged and slung over a horse but she hasn't lost her spunk. Darach is instantly attracted to Caitlin and oh so protective of her. Protective overbearing Darach, in a kilt mind you, is totally dreamy!
Caitlin really is what Darach needs to unlock his cold heart. He quickly realizes that he won't be able to resist her charms and tries his hardest to ignore her or forget her. Caitlin is sweet, way too naive for her own good and her ideas and actions will make you laugh out loud.
Lots and lots of steam between these two and some lovely passionate scenes. I loved this book! The best news is that Darach has four foster brothers - can't wait to continue this series with their stories!
