(Previously Published in Enchanting the Highlander)

Released as an Individual Title December 01, 2016

 

HIS HIGHLAND ROSE is the prequel to the new His Highland Heart series. 

“What happens when three sister gang up on their father to get what they want?”

Publisher’s Description:

Iain Brodie is a fierce warrior and passionate lover, but to prove he’s responsible enough to follow his ailing father as the clan’s chief, he must give up the lasses and find a bride—quickly. He doesn’t expect to fall for any of the Rose chief’s three daughters, but he can’t get one out of his mind—or heart—even when he discovers she is not who she claims to be.
Skilled rider and archer Annie Rose values her freedom. She doesn’t want to be anyone’s bride, not even deliciously and annoyingly sexy Iain Brodie’s. But her father wants an alliance with Iain’s clan and he’s chosen her to forge it. Unaware she could be sealing the fate she desperately wants to avoid, Annie falls under Iain’s seductive spell at the spring known in old tales as the fairy pool.

But when her father suddenly decides against their match, Annie discovers the love she never expected to find—with Iain. To win her, Iain must risk losing everything he values—the clan he was born to lead and even Annie, the woman he sees for who she truly is—his only love.

My Thoughts:

Iain Brodie’s father is ill and Iain must choose a wife.

The Rose Chief has three daughters to choose from. Unfortunately the Rose Chief suddenly decides that the previously unavailable daughter is the one he must marry rather than give Iain his choice.

Can the sisters and Iain get the Rose Chief to change his mind?

This is an enjoyable short read of about 103 pages. It is the beginning of a new series and I really liked the tale.

The characters and the storyline are well developed in this novella length story.

I would give it a 4 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and 3 of 5 flames for heat.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in December via InstaFreebie.

This in no way affected my opinion of this title.
