 Highland Promise by Alyson McLayne
(The Sons of Gregor MacLeod #1)

Highland Promise (The Sons of Gregor MacLeod #1)Men. In. Kilts. Highland lairds. In. Kilts. Add a feisty, but sometimes, okay often, too impetuous and childlike young damsel in distress, danger, attraction and humorous moments and you have Alyson McLayne’s HIGHLAND PROMISE and a delightful escape into another time and place!

Darach MacKenzie was raised with honor and a sense of duty to his clan. He has also been fooled by love and betrayal. That betrayal has lit the flames for a feud with the Frasers that could very well end in battle, especially since he has just rescued a beautiful young woman from the evil hands of the clan’s laird.

Caitlin has been brutalized by Laird Fraser and his clan, now safely ensconced in the keep of Darach MacKenzie’s castle, she finds his strength and sense of honor irresistible, but her innocence and her personal vow never to bow to a man again could be the undoing of Darach. To watch these two interact is divine comedy and sweet romance, especially when Caitlin proves she is a force to be reckoned with in her own right, always meaning well, but often going beyond what can be tolerated. When things get dicey, if not for Darach, Caitlyn could be her own worst enemy!

I have to hand it to Ms. McLayne for creating such a light-hearted tale of romance that still holds on to the flavor of the Highlands and feudal times! Darach and his brothers are swoon-worthy! With the patience of a saint and the strength of a warrior, I have to say, Darach is the perfect Highland hero. Caitlin is the comedy relief and together, along with a cast of fabulous characters, this is one read I am so glad to have gotten lost in! Nothing is better than a sweet love story and men in kilts!

I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
