About the book

Aulay Buchanan has retreated to his clan’s hunting lodge for a few days of relaxation. But the raven-haired beauty he pulls from the ocean puts an end to any chance of rest. Though he christens her Jetta, she knows nothing of her real identity, save that someone is trying to kill her. As she recovers, it will not be easy for Aulay to protect her and keep her honor intact when she mistakenly believes they are man and wife.

Jetta sees beyond Aulay’s scars to the brave, loyal warrior she’s proud to call her own. But as the attempts on her life grow more brazen, Jetta realizes that not all is as she believes. And if Aulay is not her husband, can she trust the desire flaring in his eyes, or his promise to defend her with his life?

My Thoughts

I’ve been loving this series and have been looking forward to Aulay’s story and I loved it just as much if not more than the previous titles in this series.

I loved both Aulay and Jetta’s characters and the chemistry between the two was sizzling. Both characters were refreshing to read and caught my heart. Aulay while a strong laird, he’s not overbearing and shows some vulnerability over his disfigurement. Jetta meanwhile is sweet but isn’t simpering and I just love seeing the two of them fall for each other. I really enjoyed how the conflict in this book came more from outside forces than the two clashing with each other. Yes, there’s some misunderstandings but both characters behave pretty rationally and overcome the misunderstandings like adults rather than throwing fits.

The villain in the story did surprise me which I loved. In a lot of stories you can see guess the villain early on but this one had me guessing until the very end.

For fans of the series we get to see favorite characters from the earlier books and there are plenty of scenes that made me laugh out loud.

Lynsay Sands’ Highlanders series is a must read and you will definitely want to add The Highlander’s Promise to your reading list.
