HIS HIGHLAND BRIDE (His Highland Heart #3) by Willa Blair-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date November 28,2017
A Dutiful Daughter No More
When Mary Elizabeth Rose’s father marries a much younger lass in hopes of siring a male heir, Mary sees her chance to escape her role as his chatelaine, but fears his next step will be to betroth her to a stranger. She has a different future in mind—with a sometimes charming, sometimes difficult and arrogant wounded Highlander.
He Owes Her His Life
Cameron Sutherland is not too delirious to recognize Mary Rose is the first woman he could seriously consider taking as his bride. He’d like nothing better than to spend years repaying the debt he owes his angel of mercy for taking him in and saving his life. First, he must convince her to defy her father one last time.
Will They Put Love Before Duty?
For Mary, Cameron has become the man whose every smile has the power to bring her to her knees. But he is as duty-bound as she is, and responsibility calls him back to Sutherland, where she fears he will stay, forgetting her and all they’ve shared. With another powerful clan’s interests at stake, Cameron’s return sets events in motion that will have life-changing consequences for the woman he can’t forget.
REVIEW: His Highland Bride is a romantic adventure novel by Willa Blair. This is book three of His Highland Heart Series. It’s a wonderful look at the continuing storyline and characters in this saga.
This is a continuation of author Willa Blair’s period type novel series, this one is also set in the Scottish Highlands in 1411. It’s a good look at the period’s customs and clans, which adds to the appeal.
We’re taken back to the home of Mary Elizabeth Rose, the eldest daughter of James Rose, Laird of the Rose clan.
Previously, her sisters had run off and married into the clan of Brodie, leaving her at home with their widowed father and caring for Cameron Sutherland. Cameron had helped escort her sister home last summer and was wounded by an Irish gallowglass mercenary while only two days out from delivering her sister safely.
This is story of Cameron and Mary. It’s a tender and yet frustrating tale of building love with both parties afraid to admit their feelings to each other. It’s also a story of a stubborn father that doesn’t want his last daughter to leave him.
Author Blair has added wonderful intrigue, treachery, and betrayal to Mary’s story.
I found myself falling in love with Cameron Sutherland. A past flirt and more, he’s finally grown up and his heart has given itself to Mary. However, the road to happiness is a long and arduous one, filled with mystery, and danger. Is Cameron up to the task? Grab a copy of this wonderfully written book to find out!
