Scottish pride, persuasion, and passion—this is Highland romance at its breathtaking best. From USA Today bestselling author May McGoldrick comes Highland Sword, the third book in the Royal Highlander series.
A VOW FOR VENGEANCE
Fleeing to the Highlands after her father’s murder, fiery Morrigan Drummond has a score to settle with Sir Rupert Burney, the English spymaster responsible for his death. Trained to fight alongside the other rebels determined to break Britain’s hold on Scotland, she swears to avenge her father’s death—until a chance encounter with a barrister as proud and principled as she is presents her with a hard choice…and a bittersweet temptation.
A PLEA FOR PASSION
Aidan Grant has never encountered another woman like dangerous beauty Morrigan—and he has the bruises to prove it. Yet she could be the key to defending two innocent men, as well as striking a death blow to the reprehensible Burney. Convincing Morrigan to help him will take time, but Aidan is willing to wait if it means victory over corrupt government forces and freedom for his people…and Morrigan’s hand in marriage. Can two warriors committed to a cause stand down long enough to open their hearts to a love fierce enough to last…forever?
First and foremost I would like to thank NetGalley and St. Martins Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
This is now the second time I write this review. Thanks to my computer I lost the first draft, and let me just say it was an amazing draft, so I apologize that this one isn’t as good.
I found that Morrigan was the strongest and most fierce of the three women who had to watch Dr Drummond get killed by the British Dragoons. It was her own father, the man who protected her and raised her for a large portion of her life. It was the man who was always there for her when she really needed someone so its of no surprise that she wasn’t sot avenge his murder. Just as she sees her opportunity to do something about a few of those involved she comes across Aiden. And he is trying to protect this person, but its not for the reasons she thinks. He is trying to help save innocent lives. Morrigan has kept secrets from her family, the other two women who have been there for her during this whole ordeal. But these are secrets that she has kept from everyone for many many years. These secrets are what makes me like her even more, it shows her strength and her ability to overcome any obstacle put in her way. Though it takes Aiden to show her its ok to let someone else in and not everyone is as bad as she thinks. I love that Morrigan will yield a sword as easily as she will slay a demon with words. This helps build the banter and desire between her and Aiden. I also like that Aiden sees her strength and doesn’t try to diminish it. He encourages it and helps her become stronger and better.
