My local reading group selected this book for our chat they all loved it We got it free on Bookbub I think it's 199 on Kindle right nowIt’s been a good long while since I’ve read one of these vintage highland romances and even though this one does fall victim to several tropes of the sub genre it was mostly a lot of fun to readScotland 1818 When Iain married Mairi it was with the hope that their union would end the feud between their clans Instead she loathed him and right after giving birth to their son she jumped to her death dramatic much Naturally everyone blamed him Fast forward few years and Iain’s been spending his time ruling his clan and raising his son and steering clear of the womanfolk Can you blame him But when his son is kidnapped he and his clan rescue him and a woman named Page who no one apparently wantsThis all happens in the first few chapter so no worries that I’ve gone and spoiled it all The rest of the book is a spirited romp yep I’m digging out the golden oldie review clichés for this one that basically follows spitfire oops I did it again Page Iain and his clan of rowdy Scotsman around as they face treachery and drop their pants because them Scots like being as naked as the day they were born Just trust me it is some silly fun It’s a little frustrating too I’m not gonna lie because Iain has kept things from Page that she really should know about but he’s done it to spare her tender feelings Sweet but not the smartest move If there are any menfolk reading this you might want to listen up This tactic no matter how well intentioned your motives will always come back to bite you in the naked behind Just sayingThe cast is filled with larger than life types the romance though a wee bit aggravating at times is tender and lovely and the relationships develop believably I can forgive all the rest of the nitpicky stuff because the book made me smile uite a few times and that’s enough for meYour enjoyment of this story will rest on your tolerance for this sort of plot exclamation marks an excess of verra mayhaps and dinna’s in the dialogue and damaged but good natured characters I liked it found it romantic even but as I said I haven’t read one of these in ages and it was a nice blast to past for me and though it was way too long it mostly just made feel happy to be reading it Here’s a little taste to see if the humor works for you “Page shuddered at the bold way he appraised her once No man had ever dared look at her so—with such undisguised lust It sent a jolt of alarm racing through her And to her dismay the tiniest thrillAnother uiver shook herMayhap she’d lost her wits when she’d collided with his monolith of a friendShe cast a glance at the others and found them all staring mouths agape Page hoped their idiocy wasn’t contagious They were half wits Every last one of them“Catching glowworms perchance” she askedA ridiculous sight the lot of them; their brows drew together in unison and they cast surprised glances at each other then snapped their mouths shut“Bones o’ the bluidy saints wench ‘Tis no wonder your da lets you aboot in the middle o’ the night” the leader said “He’s like to be hopin’ ye’ll lose your way home in the dark”

Two Wounded People Looking for LoveFirst in a Scottish historical series this story is set in 1118 prologue and 1124 and tells the story of Iain laird of the MacKinnons and Page Fitzsimon daughter of an English earl in Northumbria Iain lost his wife when she committed suicide following the birth of their son Now six years later his son Malcolm has been abducted and is being held in Fitzsimon’s castle Iain kidnaps Page thinking to exchange her for the boy only to learn her father doesn’t want her back Still when the earl gives Iain back his son Iain takes Page with him to ScotlandWhen Iain meets Page it is instant lust on both their parts but Page is a snippy shrew and Iain is mostly amused so it takes them a while to get together The story is told largely though the characters’ introspection and there is much inner angst of the hero heroine and villain Most of the story is occupied with the travel of Page and Iain from her father’s castle in England to Iain’s donjon in Scotland Both Iain and Page have experienced hurts and losses in their past which they must overcome to find love Then too Iain must learn who the traitor is who was involved in his son’s abductionThere isn’t much history in this one and surprisingly none of the tension between the Highlander hero and the English heroine comes from their different nationalities Still Crosby can write well and captures the feel of the period bringing to life some endearing characters including Iain’s son Malcolm The story is a bit light on action and description of scenery and locations but there is enough to have a sense for it particularly the dreary weather they face on their way to Scotland
