HIGHLANDER'S HOPE is a merry chase of an action-packed, exciting escape into a lively enjoyable romance.
Yvette Alexandra Clarisse Stapleton is on the run, escaping a stepbrother bent on making her his wife. She runs from America to England to escape but Edgar follows her. She is running away from men when she was rescued by Laird Ewan McTavish, Viscount Sethwick, a spy and covert agent of the regent.
Her dire circumstances make it necessary to protect her and take her to her relatives. Ewan suspects her and her stepbrother of being linked to a traitor who is killing agents like flies. It is urgent that this man be revealed and imprisoned. More than this though is Ewan's desire for Yvette.
I loved the story, the beautiful descriptive prose and the intriguing tale. The characters had distinctive personalities that grew flesh and bone.
Yvette was smart and endearing, if naive and biased against men seeking her immense fortune. She was determined to only marry for love when all around her only saw her wealth, never her beauty. On the other hand, Ewan was determined to capture the elusive traitor but he wanted Yvette. He determined to protect her and try and win her heart. Sensual in his seduction of Yvette, Ewan never let up the action for moment.
They are surrounded by characters that make an impression, from Mrs. Pettigrove, her wagging tongue and obnoxious behavior to the maid that refused to ride in the carriage; all are made unique. I found all of Ewan's Scottish relatives and Yvette's English relatives superbly interesting, too.
I could not stop turning the pages in anticipation of the next excitement. I heartily recommend this book to romantic readers and adventurous ones, too.
I rate it five stars but wish I could make it more. It is a wonderful book.
