Collette Cameron's book, "To love a Highland Rogue", had super sweet characters and a storyline that was out of the ordinary as far as historical romance goes. I don't think that I have ever read a historical fiction book with a similar plot. Basically, Mayra has been pledged to marry a future laird of a neighboring clan. However, Mayra doesn't remember meeting Logan. Logan has problems of his own, his dad has just died and left his evil stepmother behind and they spent all of Mayra's dowry entrusted to them which means that Logan cannot break the betrothal. Logan disguises himself as his cousin to get to know Mayra's character and drama ensues.
This book was quick to draw me in and probably took about two hours to read. The characters were well developed and they were realistic. As far as readability goes, the editing of this book was relatively smooth. I didn't notice any major hiccups. The POV did change between Logan and Mayra within the chapters, but was done with great finesse. However, the Scottish brogue was a bit inconsistent as the book went on. The plot was wrapped up nicely and this book was not a cliffhanger (Thank God!!). This was also a sweet historical romance with no smutty scenes. Definitely worth reading!
She’s determined to end her betrothal, but he must make her his, no matter the cost.
As an infant, Mayra Findlay’s hand was pledged in marriage to Logan Rutherford by order of the king. She’s only seen Logan once since; when they were still young children. Over the years, she’s written him several times, asking that he petition the king to end their troth, but Logan never responds. However, after a chance encounter with an irresistible rogue she can’t stop thinking about, nor stop secretly meeting, Mayra is resolute she’ll marry for love. Though it’s risky, she initiates a bold scheme that’s certain to force Logan to call off their union.
Until Laird Logan Rutherford returned to Scotland and inherited a near bankrupt estate, he had no intention of wedding the lass he was betrothed to as a wee lad. He’d planned to honor Mayra’s ever more demanding requests to dissolve their marriage contract, but now he must have her dowry to save his beloved Lockelieth Keep. One day, he prevents Mayra from taking a nasty tumble, and he’s immediately intrigued with the intelligent lass.
Mayra doesn’t recognize Logan, and after she reveals her utter contempt for her betrothed, he impulsively assumes his cousin’s identity. A decision that soon has Logan snared in a tangled web of deceit, because he’s fallen in love with Mayra.
