There’s something about a man in a kilt that will make me swoon. Kilts are sexy any way you cut it! Add in a Scottish brogue and I’m a goner! But the icing on the cake? A Scottish Highlander who’s fierce in battle, gentle with the ladies and playful with the kids. How could I ever resist?
Wee William is such a man. He’s dreamy, he’s sexy, he’s fierce and he’s a dreamboat with a wall around his heart. Wee William has his heart broken as a young man and as a result, he’s refused to shave his beard until he finds a woman worthy of his heart.
Nora married out of necessity. The man she ended up marrying is the worst sort of man. He’s cruel, he’s harsh, and he cares only for himself.
Wee William storms into Nora’s life one night. With these words “Would ye like to become a widow this night?” he alters her life forever. She becomes a free woman. She resolves to get her brother and sister from Firth and start a new life with them.
Wee William, being the honorable man he is, goes with her to Firth. And so it begins. Wee William doesn’t stand a chance.
This was awesome. I love how it ties back to the first story in the series, [b:Laiden's Daughter|13488738|Laiden's Daughter|Suzan Tisdale|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1336863884s/13488738.jpg|18490697]. It feels like coming home to revisit that story. It’s fitting. It’s perfect.
I must admit I was laughing so hard as everyone conspired to get Wee William to admit his feelings for Nora. That was awesome!
Suzan Tisdale does an amazing job of drawing you into the story. You feel like you’re there with the characters and can feel every heartbeat, every breath they have. I love the way she carries the Scottish Brogue through the entire story without missing a beat. It adds to the experience.
I get sucked in so much that when my DH asked me a question, I answered him with “Aye”. He looked at me, blinked, shook his head and muttered, “reading about men in skirts again.” “They’re kilts honey, and it’s sexy.”
I’m really looking forward to the next one in this series, Rowan’s Lady. I’m excited about each of them getting their happily ever after. They’re warriors, they’re fierce and they deserve some lovin’.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
