Virginia Whitebridge is trapped in a loveless, abusive marriage. The law says her husband can have whatever he wants from her—so he’s taken her inheritance. And he tried to kill her. After a close escape, Virginia feels protected for the first time in forever, thanks to the Scottish Highlands and the Highlander Magnus Sinclair. But she must go back to England, regardless of the danger, to reclaim what’s hers. Even if it means leaving her heart in Scotland.

It’s just Magnus’s luck that he’s fallen for a woman he can’t have. Virginia is rich and titled… and English. To keep her safe, he must follow her to the one place he loathes—England. Where the bowing, preening London Society has a secret language of manners unknown to him. Where he is too large, too uncivilized, too everything.

Despite omens that death awaits him there, Magnus vows to help Virginia go to London and restore her fortune. Get in. Get out. Or die trying.

Each book in The Highlanders of Balforss series is STANDALONE:

My Thoughts:

Easily read as a standalone title although there are tie ins to the other two books of this series.

Reviewed October 22, 2018

Virginia is in a loveless and abusive marriage. Her father sold her to this man for a title and her husband only wants her for her money.
Deciding that having her killed is the best road to his own happiness her husband hires a supposed assassin who has his own agenda and sells her to slavers who intend her for a brothel or a harem.
She is in the company of other women intended for the same.
Rescued from their fate by  the Highlander Magnus Sinclair.

Scotland is not where she needs or wants to be but it is a dangerous road back to England and does she really want to leave her heart behind in the Highlands?

I have read this entire series and although they are each standalone titles they do have characters in common that tie them together.
I gave this book 4.4 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a mild sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. This story stands on it’s own without need for heated scenes.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

When Lady Elizabet Harding’s family is targeted by the notorious Highland Highwayman, she finds herself wounded and an unwelcome guest of the charming outlaw who’d ruined her reputation earlier that day. Elizabet only wants to get even for her family’s downfall, but the more time she spends with the scoundrel, the more complicated her feelings become.

By day, Laird John MacGregor graces the court of Charles II. By night, he exacts revenge on his enemies – one of whom is betrothed to the fiery heiress who has, quite literally, fallen into his arms. The daughter of one enemy and promised to another, Elizabet should be the last person John wants. Yet even as she exasperates him, she is all he has ever desired for himself. When her life is put in danger, he will do anything necessary to protect the women he never expected to love…even if it means they cannot be together.

My Thoughts:

John MacGregor is by day a  member of King Charles II court and by night a Robinhood.

Reviewed February 12, 2018

This well written and somewhat tragic tale is a page turner.
You must continue to read just in case tragedy turns on it heels to a happily ever after.
Elizabet’s family is the target of a highwayman. She needs to get away from the mess that her family is facing and while out riding quite literally falls into the arms of that very scoundrel.
John MacGregor is by day a  member of King Charles II court and by night a Robinhood. He feels he must exact revenge on his brother’s murderer.
One of the men responsible is Elizabeth’s father. The other is her betrothed.
Will their attraction to each other turn to tragedy or an everlasting love?
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. Intimacy is not what makes this story a good one. The tragic nature of this tale is the necessary element in this page turning tale.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read by invitation.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
