Soul Mate Publishing
Huntress Lady Faith MacAlister seeks adventure. Her father’s dying pledge tethers her to Wild Thistle Keep, thwarting her desire to explore the world beyond the palisade. Solace is found while hunting and providing sustenance for her clan. When snatched from the safety of MacAlister lands by a rogue bent on securing a ransom, she finds the adventure of her life.
Disgraced Captain Graeme Ross travels the high seas in search of bounty to sell in order to secure family lands seized by the Crown. He longs to regain his honor in his father’s eyes and continually risks his life buying and selling goods. Lacking enough funds, Graeme and his crew follow Lady Faith MacAlister as she hunts. Out of need and desire, he kidnaps her. The lady captivates him for the moment he laid eyes upon her. Bold and spirited, she fights him. When he negotiates a ransom, deception tears the burgeoning romance apart.
Now, Faith and Graeme seek to settle those differences hindering their union, despite the stretch of sea and land—and angry Highlanders standing between them.
HIGHLAND FAITH is book two in the Wild Thistle Trilogy but I read it as a stand-alone and had no problems with the storyline nor the characters. (I will be adding book one to my tbr list) The prologue gives a little insight to the backstory of Hope, Faith and Honor. The setting is Scottish Highlands 1703.
I really liked this book. I read it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. I connected with the characters immediately, and they're further developed over the course of the book. I also developed an affinity with the secondary characters, especially Bram and Amit.
The story has quite a bit of action, on land and sea. There's twists and turns and there was actually a point where I held my breath, reading furiously to the see the outcome of a major plot twist. I wouldn't say it's a light read, it's somewhere in the middle.
I received this book for review on Celtic Dragon Book Reviews. All opinions are my own.
A resident of Western New York, she moved from one Rochester to another Rochester to be with the love of her life. They now have 3 children and keep busy cooking, going to the movies, and of course reading!
