Highlander Unbound by Julia London
Highland Unbound by Julia London
Back of Book Description:
On leave from his Highland regiment Captain Liam Lockhart comes to London on an urgent mission: to repossess the stolen family heirloom that could save his ancestral estate. he never dreamed it would involve surrendering his heart, but the beautiful and scandalous socialite Ellen Farnsworth sets his Highland blood aflame with a will as strong and reckless as his own. though bound to Liam by a soul searing passion, duty impels Ellen to commit a terrible betrayal.
Now, driven by passion, pride, and vengeance, this fearsome Highlander will reclaim not only his family's ancient treasure, but the one daring woman he was meant to love for all time.
My Rating: A
This was a wonderful book, and should have kept me turning pages every second, but for some reason I was able to put it down for the first hundred or so pages without thinking much on it.
The characters are great, and very lovable. It's set in two different places, but mostly in London. The best part was the wry humor from time to time, and the very real situation that Ellen was in and knowing that you could sympathize with her and understand why she did what she did. There was no "Why is the heroine doing that!?!?" in this book. It all made good sense.
I recommend this to all the Highlander lovers out there!
