HIGHLAND PRODIGY by Willa Blair

A Reader's Opinion


Highland Prodigy is a great book, and Aftyn and Jamie are amazing characters.

Aftyn was an understanding woman who knew her people and stood strong when faced with certain challenges. She became meek and silent when it came to using her abilities to heal the people of the clan. Yes, she has limited experience, and she relied on her mom, but when Jamie entered her life, Aftyn grew defensive and insulted. I’m like, you can’t have it both ways. Luckily, both characters turn out to be wonderful.


The author is a great storyteller and did a wonderful job bringing Highland Prodigy to life. It was easy for me to picture the scenes while reading since the details and descriptions were richly explained. I thought the tone of the book fit both the genre and the plot well. The romance between Jamie and Aftyn started out as smoldering and accelerated to a heated romance. Highland Prodigy is an entertaining read and great for fans of historical romance.

 

Highland Prodigy


Jamie Lathan is a formidable warrior, yet his life depends not only on his legendary prowess with a sword, but on keeping a dangerous secret. Like his mother, Jamie wields the power of healing magic. From childhood, he knew that those skills, often feared in a woman, would be condemned outright in a man. Discovery could mean imprisonment or death, but Jamie soon learns that denying his compulsion to heal is to deny the very core of himself.


Aftyn Keith desperately tries to fill the role of Healer after her mother dies unexpectedly. Still an apprentice, ill-prepared and hampered by her illegitimate birth, Aftyn knows that her best may not be enough to keep her place as a useful member of the clan. When a handsome Lathan warrior with healing skills far beyond her ken arrives and succeeds in saving his gravely injured kinsman, she begs him to teach her.


Jamie risks everything in choosing to trust Aftyn. But when she unwittingly betrays him, Aftyn is faced with a decision that may gain Jamie's freedom, but cost her the only home that she has ever known. In the face of her growing feelings for Jamie, she knows that either decision will leave her heart broken beyond any Healer's mending.
