Review: The Highlander's Heart by Amanda Forester

 
The Highlander's Heart
(Highlander #2)
by Amanda Forester

This book has been sitting on my bookshelf for so long. I had no idea what I was missing out on until I picked it out of my teetering shelf and opened it. There was a surprise waiting for me inside.

Before this, Amanda Forester was a new –to-me author and as a highlander romance fan, I knew I had to try her books out. Within the first ten pages, I knew this book was different. There was historical accuracy. There were great characters. And there was a handful of charm that went a long way.

Isabelle Tynsdale is running away from her abusive husband, who after the death of her uncle has the intention of killing her to gain inheritance to her lands. She escapes on her horse, fleeing her home and the man who has hurt her greatly. When her horse decides to leave her, letting her fend for herself alone, she stumbles upon three evil men with the intention of raping her. Scared beyond belief and wondering if she made the right decision running from her husband for more dangerous threats , she is rescued by a barbarian. Later, she finds out his name is Laird David Campbell.

Their chemistry is instant and palpable. What I loved about this book is the fact that Forester first develops strong character in the hero and heroine. David is the barbarian highlander while Isabelle is the English lass with some sass. Then, Forester puts them together and it’s absolute dynamite!

There is a mixture of adventure, passion, politics and charm. Perhaps my favourite parts of the book are the dialogue between David and Isabelle. Their banter is enough to keep me reading for days, as is the subplot of David’s sister, Cait. I can’t wait to see what is in store for her.

Overall, THE HIGHLANDER’S HEART kept me reading into the wee hours of the night, making me laugh and fall in love alongside the characters.
