About this ebook

“A stimulating and emotionally driven romance of mistrust, anger, pain and we see the healing power of love and redemption. A SEXY PAGE TURNER!!” —Addicted to Romance

A Highlander is always worth waiting for . . .

Scottish Highlands, 1329. Sir James McKenna, second son of the powerful McKenna Chief, knows he has found his destiny when he falls in love with sweet Lady Davina Armstrong, niece of the Armstrong Chief. Orphaned in childhood, Davina has always felt like an outsider, and with James finally feels that she belongs. But their plans for a happy future are shattered after a brutal attack by a band of rogues. Horrified, Davina's overprotective family quickly shelters her from everyone—including James . . .

Five years later, James is a changed man. His fighting skills sharpened to perfection, he is hardened by the war and destruction he's endured as a Scottish knight—and by the loss of Davina. Weary, he returns home—and is shocked to find Davina there. Is it too late for them to start anew, or will the past dare to lay claim to their future once more?

The Highlander Who Loved Me is the first book that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading by Adrienne Basso and I really liked her writing style. The words flowed really well and the story plot was a pretty good one. But while the books was very well written, the issue I had with it was the personality of the heroine. You might be thinking, ‘DANG! You dropped the rating 2 stars just because you didn’t like the heroine??’ Indeed I did because it made it very hard to relate to the story even though it was a good plot. At the beginning of the book, the hero, James, and heroine, Davina, are attacked by brigands and she completely lets this situation run her life for 5 YEARS!!! And while I understand that something like that affects a person’s life, it was really hard to get past Davina’s pity-party when she wasn’t even certain what happened to her during the attack because she blacked out halfway through it. It was pretty hard to relate to her during the first 1/2 to 3/4 of the book when she acted as such. But as the story progressed, she finally started coming out if it and choosing not to let a bad doing in her life ruin it’s entirety. While the heroine’s personality wasn’t for me I loved James’ character. Yeah he ran off to the Crusade’s when Davina changed her mind about marrying him but at least he didn’t lock himself up like she did and become frightened of everything. I REALLY liked his brother Malcolm too! I will definitely give the next book a read if Basso writes another one in this story!

I enjoyed James and Davina I just wished it was more insight to Joan and her mother. But overall I liked this book.
