Highlanders are her weakness.
Hannah Dounreay has no time for suitors who only seem interested in her family’s land, which she manages as well as any man. If she marries, she wants to be loved for the educated, independent woman she is. But when a strong, silent—and spectacularly handsome—Highlander saves her from a violent attack, her heart is stirred. Who is this man? And if he asks for Hannah’s hand, will she be able to resist him?
Love is the most powerful weapon of all.
Alexander Lochlannach, Laird of Dunnet, has no time to lose. The Highlands are in an uproar as clans battle for land—without mercy—and Alexander can’t afford to fall for the wildly attractive, strong-willed Hannah. What’s more, he has a desperate secret, one that could destroy them both. But as their attraction turns into an all-consuming passion, Alexander has no choice but to prove to Hannah that he’s the only man for her—body and soul…
Hannah is almost a spinster. She considers herself the plain, plump spinster. She’s okay with that description and knows her suitors are interested in her dowry and not her personally. She’s also okay with the fact that she may never marry. She can run her father’s estate and live out her life. Not that she doesn’t want a husband, she just wants one that wants her for her.
Alexander is a Laird and he has his hands full. Neighboring clans and some higher ups want to change how lands are used. This change isn’t good for anything but pocket lining. Families are being evicted and fleeing to Alexander’s clan. He sees Hannah at an event and he’s instantly smitten.
I wanted to love this so much. I love historical romance and especially Scottish Highlander historical romance. I just never felt connected to the characters. I liked them and their story but I didn’t feel it. Maybe it was just me, maybe not.
