Bride of a Scottish Warrior by Adrienne Basso

Bride of a Scottish Warrior
Release date: July 1, 2014
Publisher: Zebra Books
Genre: Historical (Highlander) Romance

A union born of duty...

Newly knighted Sir Ewan Gilroy needs a dowry and a wife, in that order. Though the widowed Lady Grace plans to enter a convent, squandering so much lush beauty—and such a fortune—would surely be its own sin. Grace will not be easily wooed, despite her family's urging and Ewan's famed charm. She challenges him as no woman ever dared, proving his equal in spirit and in passions...

Forged by desire...

To atone for her past, Grace vows to never remarry—least of all a brash and reckless warrior. Yet whether defending her honor or stoking desires she hardly knew she possessed, Ewan is a man beyond compare. And as their fragile trust is threatened by treachery, Grace must decide whether to reach for the happiness within her grasp—and fight for the love of her bold Highlander...

My Rating: 5 Roses

A very sweet, delight of a read, Bride of a Scottish Warrior was absolutely fantastic. I loved this book! It was totally engaging, with lovely romance and thrilling danger, and I enjoyed every bit of it. Loved it!

Grace was a lovely heroine. She was stronger than she first appeared, though in a quiet way. Rather than outright defiance, she simply held on to her strong will and refused to let anyone force her into anything. And, she was a genuinely kind character. I really liked her. I thought she was a great heroine.

Ewan was amazing. I so adored this man. He was so sweet and utterly charming and just so endearing. He was a kind and sweet man, but one who was also very clever and formidable if you got on his bad side. I absolutely loved this charmer. He was wonderful.

The romance was great. Grace and Ewan were so lovely together. They started falling for each other from the minute they met, and it was very sweet. Not to mention the chemistry between them. Definitely some steaminess there. I thought they were a perfect couple.

The plot was fast paced and I was utterly hooked the entire way through. The threat of danger from Roderick (a man determined to use Grace to gain power) kept things interesting. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was absolutely lovely.

Bride of a Scottish Warrior was a brilliant historical romance. I totally loved this book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Romance lovers, this book is a must read.
