My Fierce Highlander was an amazing read. I absolutely loved it and the characters. Gwyneth and Alasdair are very well developed. Gwyneth saves Alasdair's life at the risk of her own because she does not believe in the fighting. She wants it to stop and she sees the peace treaty that Alasdair was carrying. Alasdair is shocked that Gwyneth decided to save him. At first he is continually looking for the trick. Gwyneth and Alasdair are attracted to each other from the very beginning but Alasdair is seriously hurt and Gwyneth doesn't trust men. Gwyneth is forced to run to Alasdair's land with her son for their lives. Alasdair had been tracked back to her house. Alasdair takes them in without a problem and is grateful to do so. Alasdair fights his feelings at first for Gwyneth. He feels more than he thinks he should because of his dead wife.
Alasdair and Gwyneth complement each other very well. Gwyneth feels that she has to fight her desire because of what happened to her in the past. She has insecurities because of what society did to her. There is plenty of action in this story that keeps the reader guessing and intrigued. When I started reading this story I was immediately drawn in and didn't want to put the story down. The sex is somewhat explicit. There is not very much in the story but it is definitely there. There is emotion involved the entire time though. I loved the emotion involved and the dialogue between Gwyneth and Alasdair.
Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans--her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he’s left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family?
Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her--give up her son or the man she loves.
