Highland Bride's Choice by Amanda Forester + Featured Freebie

Highland Bride's Choice
Release date: October 1, 2013
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Genre: Historical (Highlander) Romance
Series: N/A

First in an exciting new trilogy of short stories set in medieval Scotland, bridging Amanda Forester's medieval and Regency series. Three Campbell sisters find true love with the ancestors of the three heroes featured in the author's hot new Regency romances.

In this first installment, the clan has gathered for May Day festivities, and Laird Campbell is trying to arrange marriages for his younger sisters. Practical Elyne Campbell is pleased to marry whomever her brother has chosen for her. Unfortunately, she is more attracted to Tavish Grant, the cousin of her intended, than the prospective groom himself. When she is caught outside the castle gates during a siege and is forced to spend time hiding with Grant, the attraction grows beyond all hope of practicality.

My Rating: 4 Roses

Sweet, light, and lovely. Highland Bride's Choice was a wonderful historical romance novella. It was an absolutely lovely read.

Elyne was a good heroine. For the most part, I found her likable. She was loyal and determined to do her duty to her clan. My issue with her, though, was that she played victim to a situation of her own making. No one forced her to get engaged to the laird. Her brother even told her that he would break the engagement if she didn't want it. But, she decided to sign the papers. Then, she complained about her engagement, basically from the moment she finished signing her name and especially when she fell in love with Tavish. It was a little irritating. But, regardless, I liked her.

Tavish was a total sweetheart. He was just adorable. He was lighthearted, sweet, and just wonderful. I adored him. I thought he was perfect.

The romance was mostly sweet. I thought Elyne and Tavish were lovely together. There was a hint of spice, but that wasn't the focus of their relationship. I really liked this couple.

The plot was fast paced. I was kept interested the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Highland Bride's Choice was a wonderful historical romance novella. I really enjoyed reading this lovely book. Lovers of romance, if you want a quick, light, sweet read, then this is a book you'll want to check out.

Featured Freebie:
Today, I have a paranormal/fairy tale romance that sounds good: Loving a Fairy Godmother by Danielle Monsch. Go forth and get it for free!

Tiernan is one of a kind. Beyond the divine dimples, killer blue eyes, and hard muscled body, Tiernan is also the only Fairy Godfather. Most of the Fairy Godmothers have no problem with keeping Tiernan around, but Reina isn’t like most Fairy Godmothers.

Amongst Fairy Godmothers, Reina is the best. Organized, efficient, logical. So why is it when Tiernan is around, all those qualities fly out the window? Reina doesn’t like that one infuriating male makes her lose control, and just wants him gone. Circumstances arise that just might let her get her wish, though not in a way she ever wanted.

Tiernan is given an assignment and told either get a Happily Ever After for a woman named Cinderella or he will no longer be a Fairy Godfather. Reina is going with him to supervise, but if Tiernan gets his way, he’ll get her to admit Happily Ever Afters can also happen to Fairy Godmothers.
