This series is superb. The stories move from one to the next so seamlessly it feels like a tapestry of unfolding events that build upon each other. Lady Katherine Carew was rescued by Marcus MacPherson from the court of King James when he won his freedom and his wife. Marcus went one step further when he allowed the young girl to dress and train like one of the boys of the clan. Unfortunately for Katherine, this level of freedom wearing pants and fighting like one of the boys can’t last much longer now that she’s hit her twenties. The gown-clad Katherine unfortunately does not gain the same level of acceptance in her clan with her lack of womanly skills. Headstrong and used to running wild, she’s off in the Highlands creating mayhem in the name of helping her clan.
Rolfe MacTavish has been intrigued by Katherine from his first meeting, when she foiled their attempt to rustle some MacPherson cattle. On another occasion when Rolfe was in danger, Katherine put herself on the line to save him. Unfortunately for her, he repays her for her generosity of spirit by returning her to court and the guardianship of the Earl of Morton.
Can these two come together to forge a meaningful future? The story telling and level of detail is superb. If you enjoy Scottish historical romance, then this is a not-to-be-missed series.
