My Rating: 5 Roses

How to Handle a Highlander was a wonderful historical romance. With steamy romance, sneaky manipulation, and a couple of psychopaths, this book is sure to be a hit. It was a fantastic read and I totally loved it!

Moira was a heroine determined to do what's best for her clan. Even if it means marrying a lecherous old man. And denying what she really wanted. I thought she was a strong character. She's dealt with years of being put down by her siblings and survived with her kindness intact. She was a likable heroine. I thought she was lovely and I really liked her.

Gahan was a highlander that was determined to have his way. And that, included stopping a clan war, taking down a corrupt laird, and marrying the woman he loves, who just so happens to already be married. Impossible, you say? Tell that to the stubborn highlander :) I adored him. I loved that he was so determined to do what was right, even if others didn't see it that way. He was super sweet and strong and absolutely adorable. I thought he was a wonderful hero.

The romance was very sweet. Moira and Gahan were adorable together. Because both of them had common roots, while they lived the nobility's world, they understood each other and I thought that was really sweet. And the sparks between them were hot, made even hotter by they very forbidden element of it. There were definitely some steamy scenes with these two. They were a lovely couple.

The plot was fast paced. I was kept interested the entire way through. The manipulations and secrets agendas that were going on had me on the edge of my seat, anxious to find out how all the schemes would turn out. The villains of this book, Felicity's siblings, were easy to hate and their ending was very satisfying. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.

How to Handle a Highlander was a fantastic historical romance. I really enjoyed this book. It was absolutely lovely. Lovers of romance, if you want some highlander fun and a brilliant read, then this is a book you'll want to check out.
