A Reader's Opinion: PASSION AND PLUNDER by Collette Cameron

PASSION AND PLUNDER by Collette Cameron


Another beautiful Scottish story by Collette Cameron! Collette Cameron never disappoints me with her Scottish romances! I really enjoyed PASSION AND PLUNDER, her fifth story in the Highland Heather Romancing a Scot series. She nicely blended her charming characters, Lydia and Alasdair, into a well-developed plot and beautiful love story. This author is a very descriptive writer, so reading her books is always fun and a great escape. This story is about true love, second chances, secrets, and trust. Lovers of love stories set in Scotland will love this book! Tornbury Fortress, Scottish Highlands January 1819 . . . Lydia Ferguson has lost everyone she loved except her father who is dying. His last wish is for her to find a suitable husband, so he concocts a plan to invite eligible men to meet Lydia. Which warrior will win Lydia's heart and look beyond that she is only surviving heir to the Laird of Tornbury's Fortress? A charming Scotsman named Alasdair, son of Craiglocky Keep's war chief, enters her life, only Alasdair has a secret. He always admired Lydia, however because of this secret, he never showed her his true feelings. When danger lurks around Lydia, he will become her protector, and you can feel the beautiful chemistry that Lydia and Alasdair share. I loved the epilogue because it ended on a happy note! The romantic intrigue between these two beautiful souls kept my interest until the end. It’s a wonderful historical novel that was enjoyable from start to finish. If you are not familiar with the Scottish language, you’ll have fun discovering new words such as this passage: “Och, eight, ye say?” Da laughed and slapped his gaunt chest when he started coughing again. “We’d best find ye a husband soon, and get started then. Ye’ve nae time to waste. A big, strappin’ Scot, like one of those McTavish twins. That Alasdair McTavish, now he be a braw fellow. Keen too.” Well done, Ms. Cameron!
