I loved My Brave Highlander. It was an excellent read. The characters were written extremely well, all of them. I fell in love with them from the beginning. Isobel and Dirk are great together; I was rooting for them from the very beginning. Isobel is a strong woman that is handling what has happened to her really well. I love the fact that she doesn't back down. The flow of the story is really smooth. The story moves at a good pace. I was drawn in from the beginning and didn't put it down until I finished it. There is plenty of action in this story to hold your attention. There is intrigue that keeps you guessing until the end. You are given some clues and know some of what is going on but you do not get all of it until the end. I can't wait for the next book in the series. This is the third book in the Highland Adventure series. It can be standalone without any issues, but I recommend reading the first two to get to know Dirk and his best friend, and for pure enjoyment.
Dirk gets a letter that his father is dying and so he leaves his friends lands to return home. He hasn't been home for 12 years, when someone tried to murder him. He was secreted away but is headed back to see his father, hopefully before he passes. Isobel is betrothed to a Highland Chief but her intended's brother tries to accost her. She fights back and runs so that he cannot take revenge. She escapes out into a snowstorm with her maid and runs into Dirk. Dirk cannot leave her to fend for herself and so persuades her to go with him. They recognize each other but neither is ready to trust the other with their secrets.
Battle-hardened warrior Dirk MacLerie isn't who everyone thinks he is. He's Dirk MacKay, heir apparent to the MacKay chiefdom and Dunnakeil Castle on the far north coast of Scotland. When he returns home after a long absence, will his clan know him and will the duplicitous enemy who tried to murder him twelve years ago kill him in truth this time?
Lady Isobel MacKenzie is a beautiful young widow betrothed to yet another Highland chief by her brother's order. But when her future brother-in-law accosts her and threatens to kill her, she is forced to flee into a Highland snowstorm. When she runs into a rugged and imposing man she thought dead, she wonders if he will turn her over to her enemy or take her to safety.
Dirk remembers the enchanting, dark-eyed Isobel from when he was a lad, but now she is bound to another man by legal contract—an important detail she would prefer to forget. She wishes to choose her own husband and has her sights set on Dirk. But he would never steal another man's bride… would he? The tantalizing lady fires up his passions, testing his willpower and honor at every turn, even as some of his own treacherous clansmen plot his downfall. Super Plus Novel - 100,000+
