#BookReview - Trusting a Highlander by Keira Montclair

Author:  Keira Montclair
Genre:  Historical Fiction, Adult Romance, Medieval
Release Date:  March 8, 2017

About the Book:

A clan war stands between them. Can fate bring them together?

After each life cycle, Catherine returns to the heavens for a new assignment. This time, she’ll be born in the Highlands of Scotland, and she’s thrilled to learn she’ll meet her soulmate. Circumstances will try to wrest them apart, but they must stand strong if they’re to live a happy life. There’s one drawback: Catherine won’t remember anything once she’s born...

Catherine is married to Henry Merrill, an abusive Englishman who resents her for her failure to bear him sons. Their one daughter means nothing to him, and though the bairn is sickly, he refuses to send for a healer. Desperate, Catherine ventures into the Highlands alone—intent on saving her only daughter—only to find herself in a life-threatening situation mere hours after she leaves the castle.

Revenge consumes Graeme MacGregor’s every thought. Henry Merrill attacked his castle and slayed his parents and brother in front of him, and he’s intent on paying the man back in kind. Finally, after years of training, he and his warriors are ready to mount their attack. But when he rides to Merrill land to conduct a final scouting mission, Graeme instead finds—and rescues—a beautiful lass facing sure death. The brave and feisty beauty reminds him that there’s a life beyond revenge, but everything changes when he finds out she is Merrill’s wife.

First in a new series, this is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers.

My Review:

When I go on road trips, I love to listen to books on Audible.  I recently listened to another book by Keira Montclair and loved it, so when I saw that this one was available as well, I downloaded it.  Wow!  Oh!  Wow!  This one was even better!  If you even remotely like Highlander novels, you will love this book!

This is book #1 in the Soulmate Chronicles, but there is no cliffhanger.  It can be read as a stand-alone novel.  It is a quick read of around 230 pages, or in my case a 6 hour 35 minute listen.  But Keira Montclair packs a lot of story in those 230 pages!  Although some of the secondary characters were not as well developed as I would have liked, the main characters Graeme and Catherine were so lifelike and so fully developed I could almost imagine being right there with them.  And the little twist of soulmates in Heaven was beautiful.

The storyline details are pretty much explained in the description of the book, so I won't go into that, but the love that grows between Graeme and Catherine is outstanding... a bit spicy (just in case you need to know that)... but I enjoyed it!

My Rating:
