When his son is kidnapped and given to the English, Iain MacKinnon will stop at nothing to retrieve him, even if it means kidnapping the Englishman’s daughter in return.
Page FitzSimon has always been the unloved outcast of her family, the daughter her father never wanted. When Page spends an elicit evening by the river she gets more than she bargained for in the form of brutish Scotsmen.
FitzSimon has no use for his daughter and when the King of England’s life is at stake he relinquishes the boy but refuses to take back the girl leaving MacKinnon to decide…does he take her or leave her to her own fate?
Big, burly Scotsmen with even bigger hearts. Who doesn’t fantasise about a strong highlander whisking them off to their castle?!
Iain MacKinnon may not always be gentle but he knows he can’t let Page go back to her father and, with the time spent together on their journey back to his homeland, the pair start to rub off on each other.
Page has never been loved by her father or brother’s. Finding herself mixed up with the unconventional highlander shows her trust and love that she never knew existed. Iain’s weariness at letting another woman close to him does not help with Page’s insecurities but together they find the path they need.
I had not previously read anything by this author before but the story is well constructed, a good plot-line with a hint of mystery and lots of romance (once the main characters get together). I do not know if all the details are historically correct but I really liked the use of the old Scottish language throughout. Will endeavour to read more of this series in the future.
