Highland Surrender

2013 ©Desert Rose RWA® Golden Quill Award Winner – Historical Romance

To seal a fragile truce, Fiona Sinclair’s brothers trade her in marriage to their sworn enemy. Though devastated by their betrayal, she has little choice in the matter, for if she refuses, her innocent young sister must take her place. The spirited Fiona is willing to sacrifice her freedom to protect her kin, but she vows never to surrender her heart.

As the eldest son of a clan chief, Myles Campbell is accustomed to having his own way. But when the king of Scotland commands he wed a defiant Highland lass instead of a French mademoiselle, Myles must obey his royal duty. Meeting his bride for the first time on their wedding day, he is pleased to discover the lass is a beauty, but she quickly proves she’d just as soon kill him as kiss him.

When two such warrior spirits collide, sparks fly, igniting a fiery passion that strains against the bonds of family honor, clan loyalty— and the ultimate surrender—love.

The story is the age old tale of feuds between the Scottish clans but with a refreshing new style,…

  2. Very slow start, OK ending I found this book to be a frustrating reading particularly because of how long it takes for the leading lady of the book, Fiona, to budge in her hatred of he husband, Myles. It isn’t until more than halfway through the book that she even tries to meet Myles halfway in trying to at least make their marriage bearable. 

  3. This book has it all! It has intrigue, sibling rivalry and betrayal, love, and romance (complete with detailed love scenes). The storyline was gripping. I could feel the pain that the young and lovely Fiona Sinclair must have felt when her brothers forced her to marry Myles Campbell, the son of a bitter rival (whose father was thought to have murdered her mother). Naturally, she assumed that Myles would surely be the brute she thought his father to be. I was gripped by the back and forth emotions she felt, as…
