In the dead of night with deliberate determination, a young mother gathers her toddler and flees her brutal past in hopes of securing a chance at a better future for her daughter.
On the journey through Scotland, Abigail and her precocious toddler, Jessalyn, meet up with a band of Highlanders led by the arrogant Laird Duncan MacDugal, known for his superior skills on the battlefield and ability to intimidate even his toughest rivals.
With Abigail’s fiery temper and Duncan’s difficult disposition, they find it impossible to agree on anything. However, their struggles can’t compare to the battle of wills between the fierce laird and the obstinate toddler. No one could have predicted the infamous, mighty warrior would find his toughest adversary in this pint sized opponent.
Will the laird, mother, and child be able to figure out how to become a family?
This was a sweet story, with sweet characters. But JESSA! Oh my goodness, I loved her! I was able to picture her cute little face and here her words chiming every time the author gave her dialogue. She's adorable. As with most Highlander books I've read, the warriors are "manly men", and I have a little bit of a crush on all of them! The bad guy in this is a truly evil a-hole, and I was quite happy with the ending of the book!
The only real issues I had with this were some minor editing issues (mainly comma misuse...not major, but something that always catches my attention), but they weren't bad, and certainly much less than I've found in many books.
Overall, I would recommend this to any Highlander lovers out there looking for a cute romance with a Scottish accent.
