A Reader's Opinion: HIS HIGHLAND LOVE by Willa Blair


Fiery passion burns bright in HIS HIGHLAND LOVE! Kenneth Brodie and Mary Catherine Rose are denied the chance to be together by Cat's father. Kenneth is unable to deal with losing Cat and hearing that her father has arranged a marriage to another man in a different clan. He flees to France and believes he's lost his beloved Cat forever. Even though Cat refuses to marry the men her father chooses, he won't let her have Kenneth, and we really find out why. But her father's refusal to let her and Kenneth be together couldn't kill their love. When Kenneth returns and finds that Cat is free of marriage, he vows to protect and love her to whatever bitter end may come.

Kenneth and Catherine are easy to like. The author's writing style is nice and well-paced, and Ms. Blair sweeps the reader away to the Highlands on a journey of love and adventure. The plot is well done with twists and turns to keep the reader guessing and hoping they get their happily-ever-after. Ms. Blair keeps us waiting and wanting with anticipation to the end. Readers who enjoy Highland romance should definitely try Willa Blair's books.

A Love Denied Kenneth Brodie offered for young Mary Catherine Rose but her father declined, then a year later accepted an offer from another clan. Furious at hearing Cat would be married soon to someone else, Kenneth fled to France and drowned his disappointment in wine, women and war. A Love Lost Two years after her father demanded they wait until Cat was older, she doesn’t understand why Kenneth hasn’t returned for her. Broken-hearted, Cat spurns yet another betrothal her father arranges and runs away to her cousin in St. Andrews, vowing never to marry. A Love Worth Fighting For By the time Kenneth returns home, trouble is brewing in Scotland. Sent to St. Andrews as hostage for his clan to the Warden of Scotland, Kenneth resents being exiled—until he encounters his lost love, Cat Rose. When war breaks out, they must escape. And even though he betrayed her with more than one mademoiselle, he’s the only man Cat trusts to get her home to the Highlands. Can she forgive his past and renew the love they once shared?
