From New York Times Bestselling author Cynthia Wright comes a thrilling new romance of 16th century Scotland!
A PROUD HIGHLANDER
Darkly handsome Ciaran MacLeod revels in his life as a Highland warrior. He spends his days training with his comrades at Duntulm Castle on the far cliffs of the Isle of Skye, and by night he takes his pick of smitten lasses.
However, Ciaran harbors a family secret that makes him deeply suspicious of love. He’s grateful he doesn’t have to worry about taking a wife, for the castle is efficiently run by Violette, a plain young Frenchwoman who hides under a dowdy gable hood and reveals nothing of her own past.
Violette Pasquiére fled to Scotland to escape a vengeful stepfather. On the remote Isle of Skye, she feels safe, tending to the strong Clan MacLeod men who would be lost without her care. The potent attraction Violette feels for Ciaran MacLeod is just one more secret she keeps.
But a threat to Duntulm Castle changes everything, and Ciaran’s elders pressure him to make a marriage alliance that will benefit the clan. Rebelling against their efforts to control him, Ciaran impulsively proposes to Violette instead, setting in motion a passionate series of events that shake not only their future, but challenge their carefully guarded hearts…
Darkly handsome Ciaran MacLeod revels in his life as a Highland warrior.
He spends his days training with his comrades at Duntulm Castle on the far cliffs of the Isle of Skye, and takes his pick of smitten lasses.
Ciaran, however, harbors a secret, passed down from his now deceased mother, that has caused him to be deeply suspicious of love.
Violete Pasquiére fled to Scotland to escape a vengeful and abusive stepfather.
She feels safe on the remote Isle of Skye, disguised in drab clothing and and tending to this strong clan of MacLeod men who would be lost without her care.
Ciaran’s fall into the state of love is not a blissful one with all that is going on with his clan.
This epic tale of Ciaran and Violete’s journey to love is one of the best and most absorbing books I have read this year. It really keeps you on your toes and is a real page turner since you are never certain what will happen next.
The characters are well developed and the plot is absorbing.
I gave this wonderfully written book 4.65 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.
I read a complimentary ARC of this book furnished by the author. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
