I enjoyed this historical story of warring Scottish clans very much. The heroine, Bonnie, is strong-willed and feisty, and has to endure heartache and deprivation in order to be with the man she loves. For in those days women were often expected to marry for the benefit of the clan, or at the whim of a parent or guardian. But Bonnie is not the sort of woman to accept her fate without a struggle.
The story is extremely well written, with lots of emotion and excitement, as Bonnie faces one problem after another. The story keeps you in suspense all the way through and I could hardly put it down once I had started to read. A wonderful book, and I look forward to reading more by this author.
his was a frustrating read in there were so many people and circumstances working to keep the hero and heroine apart. At one point I even gave up and thought she should just be with the other man who wanted to marry her. Bonnie went through so much turmoil and dealt with everything with strength and resilience. I really liked her, even when I wasn't on board with her decisions, or actions. The hero tended to bother me more with the things he did and failed to do. In the end I was rooting more for Bonnie to have a happy ending in general than specifically for the couple to end up together.
This is not a spanking/Ds/dd story as you would expect from Blushing Books, also no sex, but well worth the read.
Escape to medieval Scotland in this tale of romance, tragedy, and spirituality that kept me in suspense until the last page. I enjoyed every moment of reading the modern descriptive prose intermingled with the medieval Scottish dialogue. The depth of the characters and the way Bonnie told the story had me there with them the whole time. The plot brought me joy and tears, but through it all I had faith that I would find peace at the end. I look forward to reading more from this author.
I loved this book and was drawn into the story, the characters and the multiple tragedies. It is about two warring Scottish clans, the McDonalds and the McLeods. They have been at war for more than a hundred years, and to the point that no one alive even was sure as to what or why, just that it was still taking place. What happens when Bonnie McDonald and Rory McLeod fall in love? Will they be allowed a union or will the battles continue? The plot kept me captivated and the pages turning with so many emotions, a deep abiding love that is torn into by war, add deception, plotting, murder, kidnapping, and arranged unions and the story will keep you in suspense. The dialog is emotional, at times heartwarming and other times makes you want to cry and scream at the injustice to women.
Note to Blushing Publication readers, this story is a historical romantic suspense that is completely clean about two clans and two people who love each other. It contains no DD, D/s, BDSM, sex, etc.
I really enjoyed this book from the very beginning. The characters were well written and garnered sympathy and understanding. The story was fast paced without being rushed. I liked that it gave some background to the characters & an idea of their history. The fact that it was based on real events helped. Although how anyone can go through all of that in such a short time is beyond me! Well worth the read & will be looking for this author in the future.
I really loved this book. Fun frolick through the Schottish highlands. You feel like you are the heroine, Bonnie as she goes on a tremendous adventure. Plot twists and turns, you're rooting for her the whole way. Clean and suitable for anyone to read. I loved it. I hate first person but I love it when Heather Hart does it.
