Review: "Ravished by a Highlander" by Paula Quinn

FORBIDDEN LOVE

Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she’s been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown’s most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal–and a bold rescue–land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.

UNDENIABLE DESIRE

As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he’s not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire…and desperate for more. With Davina’s secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can’t live without.

When Paula Quinn asked me if I wanted to read Ravished by a Highlander, I jumped at the chance. I’ve been wanting to read Paula’s books and I love highlander stories. And let me tell you, this book did not disappoint.

I adored the characters of Robert and Davina. Robert is that fantasy highlander… powerful and strong, yet loving and tender and willing to do anything to protect his woman. Davina is a woman with a very important secret… and a woman with men hunting her. Even the secondary characters were interesting, all the way down to a very despicable villain.

The book is action packed from page one, with twists and turns abounding. I was immediately drawn into the story and didn’t want to put the book down until I read the last word. This is the first book in a new series revolving around Robert and his brothers. I am very much looking forward to the next book and hope it is another winner.
