WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK
When Brandon Campbell captures Fiona MacDonald on his land with a newborn baby, he is surprised. Fiona used to be the woman he loved, but now she is his sworn enemy after her family killed so many of his clan. But if what she says is true, how can he ensure, as the new Laird of clan Campbell, she is justly punished.
The Highlander’s Secret Son starts on an intriguing note. Brandon’s capture of Fiona sets in motion all the events to come in the book thus, hooking the reader’s attention from the beginning. To her credit, the author kept my attention till the end through the various twists and turns dotting the plot. I couldn’t help but keep on turning the pages to find out if Brandon and Fiona’s love will triumph at the end.
I liked the romance in the book. It was believable and not over-the-top.
However, I found the plot to be formulaic. Nevertheless, it was well-executed. Since the female main character suffers brutal abuse at the hands of her father, I was expecting more empathetic treatment of this matter in the book. I also found the book to be repetitive at many points.
Brandon and Fiona’s love for each other shines through in the end thus providing a much-needed happy ending. Recommended for lovers of romance and historical fiction.
Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance
