MY HIGHLAND LORD is a hilarious and an intriguing adventure in which all kinds of mysteries and romance surround our heroine.
Lord Ashlund, Kiernan MacGregor, kidnaps Phoebe Wallington, mistaking her for his friend's mistress, Lady Heddy Ballingham. He is only trying to heal a lover's quarrel for a friend.
Phoebe is outraged, for she is trying to clear her father of treason. She is working as a British spy with this goal in mind when this lunatic highwayman kidnapped her and took her off to Scotland. There seems to be others trying to kidnap her too, and a fierce gun battle and flight to safety ensue.
When Phoebe injures herself trying to jump out of the moving carriage, she finds herself being cared for by the handsome highwayman. Needless to say, sparks fly for he is a hot, sexy man.
MY HIGHLAND LORD is fast-paced and energetic. I loved all the characters, including the bodyguard/butler Mathers and the endearing Uncle Albery, just to name a few.
The whole story is very descriptive and you feel like you are with the characters along for the ride. The witty dialect is great fun. It is highly descriptive with loads of satirical comebacks and funny lines.
I must admit to one thing I found a little aggravating.There were some typos or mistakes in word reversals or word omissions but I think that was done in formatting. I don't see how it could be the author's fault at all. I wish it could have been rectified because I truly loved this story. I think it would have been a perfect read otherwise.
I still give MY HIGHLAND LORD five Stars out of five because it was supremely interesting and captivating. I think the addition of historical events added to the flavor of the mystery and excitement.
I look forward to more of these Highland Lords! Great job, Tarah Scott!
