Lady Isabelle escapes her murderous English husband only to be abducted by a Highland warrior and held for ransom. Her determination to break free from captivity is exceeded only by the passion growing between her and the Highland Laird. David Campbell plans to hold Isabelle for ransom as an easy way to line his pockets and return her back where she belongs, but he is unprepared for a feisty English lass with a penchant for finding trouble. Caught between rival clans bent on claiming the throne of Scotland, Campbell must choose a side, and a bride. Standing on the brink of war, Isabelle may be his only hope to save his clan, and his heart. description taken from here.
This is the 2nd book in Amanda Forester's Highlanders series. The first is called The Highlander's Sword, and the 3rd book in the series called True Highland Spirit will be coming out in March of 2012.
Lady Isabelle was wed to a mean older man, and now she is trying to get an annulment. She starts her journey here, running from her husband, only to find out that she can't hide out at her uncle's because he is now dead, and then be captured by a highland brute. Of course, we all know that heroins (as well as us, the readers) always fall for the brute, especially if they have a Scottish accent.
I thought the book was great. My attention was held the entire time, and I had some trouble putting the book down (which is not good for my sleeping habits!). The mix between romance and drama/action was awesome and I think it is pretty safe to safe that I loved this book. It doesn't hurt that the cover is pretty too though, does it? ; )
**I was sent a copy of the book in order to write a real and honest review. I was not paid to write this review. All opinions are my own.**
