Highland Promise

The Sons of Gregor MacLeod Book 1

"Highland Promise" is a really good historical romance!

I loved the premise for this series, the rich storytelling, and also the endearing characters. Darach MacKenzie made a great Highlander hero. He tried so hard to keep from losing his heart to Caitlin but of course the lass was irresistible. She really was and such a sweeter heroine as I've ever met in a story. She might've been a wee bit impulsive and naive, though. Her adorable helpfullness caused quite a bit of trouble, and gained no few laughs from this happy reader.

Highland Promise was the first book that I've read from Alyson McLayne. It definitely won't be the last. I was captivated by the perfect balance of romance and light humor. I smiled a lot while reading it which always brings me back to an author or series. There was of course a villain or two thrown in to stir up trouble and liven up the plot. I felt it was a well written and very interesting book. I can't wait to read the next one in the series. I wouldn't wantto miss out on the next brother's story.
