What a wonderful story! Vonda Sinclair knows how to draw you in with her descriptions of the characters and the surroundings and make you feel like you are there! I felt like I could visualize the story as it unfolded and feel the emotions. One of my favorite tropes is the emotionally or physically scarred hero or heroine who in the end finds happiness.
Lady Kristina has suffered tragically by the hand of a Highland Chief, Blackburn, who had mistreated her sister and left Kristina blind from a blow to the head. As her sister escaped him, Blackburn uses Kristina again to lure her sister out to him. Rescued by Colin Cameron, a braw warrior and future chief, Colin is indeed a hero to fall in love with. He is so kind and has deep feelings for being such a strong man. What follows is a whirlwind of suspense and romance. Brutal forces drive Colin and Kristina to extreme lengths to try to stay alive. Kristina is such a strong, amazing and caring person despite her disability.
This book is part of a series that I have not read, but the story can be read as a standalone. Still, I intend to go back and read every one. I'm going to put Vonda Sinclair on my favorite author list! I am looking forward to the next books in the series. I hope some of the secondary characters will appear!!! "Highlander Entangled" is well done and is an amazingly powerful tale!
Lady Kristina MacQueen suffered devastating injuries at the hands of a ruthless Highland chief, Blackburn MacCromar. Two years later, he kidnaps her for a journey across the chilly, windblown Scottish Highlands to flush out her sister, Anna—the woman Blackburn forced to wed him. Red Holme, Blackburn's second-in-command, is equally brutal and determined to possess Kristina.
A Highland warrior and future chief, Colin Cameron has no intention of becoming entangled in the whims of another highborn lady. However, upon witnessing Lady Kristina being held hostage by the enemy, a knife to her throat, he resolves to rescue her and bring her to safety. When Red Holme sees Colin Cameron, he recognizes his enemy from a decade earlier and craves revenge even more than he lusts for the lady. But he is determined to have both.
Colin is the most charismatic and heroic man Kristina has ever met, and he awakens her woman's instincts. He might be her only chance to experience a brief moment of passion. Even so, she holds no illusions about marriage, for no worthy man will find her blindness and scars appealing, or see them as beneficial traits in a wife. But she can't see how he looks at her. Though Colin has sworn to never fall in love again, he cannot defend his heart against the strong, spirited and lovely lass who is like none other he has ever met.
