Highland Lioness

Worth reading 😎

A spunky heroine who doesn't take orders lightly and keeps everyone on their toes, even when it comes to love.

Are you looking for a heroine who pushing against the grain and doesn't take life sitting down? Then this might be a book for you to dive into. She doesn't wait around for things to fall into place. This woman takes matters into her own hands.


The story started off a little slow as the stage was set. I like to jump right in, but the writers takes the reader along at a slower pace until the intrigue of court enters the picture. Nothing is too slow then as questions and mysteries arise.


I solved most of the mysteries early but found it fun to watch the others solve them as well. In my opinion, I think the story would have benefited from more encounters with the mystery legend on horseback. That would have added excitement. Most of the story is surrounding the young heroine and her feelings toward the rival clan and its members.


There are quite a few characters to keep you trapped at the Scottish court and plots aplenty. I enjoyed how the author takes the reader through different scenes of everyday farming life to deception within the court. The reader will not get bored with the scenery.


This is a sweet romance that explores historical time periods and allows for deeper character development. The fact that the heroine has a mind of her own and uses made me smile quite often. At times, she was reckless. Other times, she was brave and bold.


If you like historical romances that keep a sweetness about them, this is a book you need to check out. Will be see what others the author has and will be enjoying some time away from my not so exciting life. When a book can take you away, the author has succeeded. Give it a try.
