"The Highlander's Promise" is entertaining from beginning to end. It included one of my favorite tropes of the scarred hero who finds love unexpectedly. In this case Highlander, Aulay Buchanan had a huge scar on his face from the war and had been rejected by his betrothed when he returned. But fate has a way of stepping in and while out one day with his brother, they found a mysterious woman washed up on the shore and in terrible shape. She had lost her memory, except she knew someone was trying to kill her and they began calling her Jetta. Of course, Jetta assumed Aulay was her husband and the story takes off from there. There is a mystery to be solved as far as Jetta's actual identity and who is trying to cause her harm.
Full of many twist and turns with a budding romance, "The Highlander's Promise" is delightful with moments of humor and a lot of wonderful characters with the Buchanan brothers and their spouses. Aulay was such a wonderful guy and he and Jetta fit well together. I have not read all of the books in this series, but this can be read as a standalone. I have always enjoyed stories by Lynsay Sands and this is no exception!!!
In a spellbinding new Highlands story from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands, the laird of the Buchanans finds the one woman who is his equal in passion and courage
Aulay Buchanan has retreated to his clan’s hunting lodge for a few days of relaxation. But the raven-haired beauty he pulls from the ocean puts an end to any chance of rest. Though he christens her Jetta, she knows nothing of her real identity, save that someone is trying to kill her. As she recovers, it will not be easy for Aulay to protect her and keep her honor intact when she mistakenly believes they are man and wife…
Jetta sees beyond Aulay’s scars to the brave, loyal warrior she’s proud to call her own. But as the attempts on her life grow more brazen, Jetta realizes that not all is as she believes. And if Aulay is not her husband, can she trust the desire flaring in his eyes, or his promise to defend her with his life?
