A life forever changedA heart on the mendMysterious events abound
In order to receive his family’s fortune, Sean Gunn must agree to wed the lady thrust upon him by his dying uncle. As a Gunn clan protector and guardsman, he is honor bound to accept his uncle’s legacy and the woman whose voice alone affects more than his heart.
Lady Frances Jordan never thought to feel the stirrings of love since she’d lost her husband, but Sean Gunn’s irresistible manner and handsomeness is just what she needs to move on with her life. He awakens more than desire with his passionate kisses and romantic gestures.
When many a lady goes missing near the border of Scotland and England, Sean is determined to find out who the knave is. Unfortunately Frances becomes the target of the would-be attacker and needs the aid of the Gunn protector. Can Sean keep his lady safe and embroil himself in border politics to ferret out the assailant?

A Highlander In PerilMy Review
A Highlander in Peril by Kara Griffin


You have to love those brawny men in kilts protecting what is theirs, from family to home to land. Get ready for sigh-worthy romance, between two of the best matched characters ever! Lady Francis is a down-to-earth woman, who has a mind of her own in a time where women were considered political pawns in the game of power, making allies and babies. Sean Gunn is one of the famous Gunn Guardsmen, known for their strength and fighting prowess who has just become the Laird of his uncle’s estate. Part of his late uncle’s wishes were that he marry Francis, once a lady of the court, and become father to her young daughter, roles that he took to quite well! Was it Francis’ beauty or her brains and common sense that drew him in? Was it her eagerness to enjoy “bedsport?” Her willingness to take the pleasure he could offer? What could have been a fairytale ending became a frightening mystery of murderous proportions and the vile villain could not be found. With things heating up in the bedroom and danger getting ever closer, Sean is determined to keep his family safe, but can he do it alone?

A Highlander in Peril by Kara Griffin is a journey back in time to 13th century Scotland that comes alive on every page. Ms. Griffin has a way with words that flow throughout the story with a magical grace, detailing the era and the characters until they fairly jump off the pages. If you enjoy historical romance and those amazing men-in-kilts, this is quick read that will hold you in its clutches to the very end.

I received a review copy from Kara Griffin and Smith Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
