Summary: THE SWORD BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER...
Lady Aila Graham's dreams of a quiet life are shattered when her hand and fortune are pledged in marriage to Padyn MacClaren in exchange for the veteran knight's promise to protect her clan from a vicious threat.
BUT ONLY LOVE CAN BIND THEIR HEARTS
Hardened by a life of violence and betrayal Padyn believes a strong sword arm is all he needs to keep his new bride safe. But a devastating misunderstanding on their wedding night sets off a chain of violent events. Aila and Padyn must thrown caution to the winds if they are to forge the power bond they'll need to save the clan.
Thoughts: For many years now, Aila has been destined for the church, she knows nothing else. But on St. John's Eve she's summoned by her father. He informs her that she will be marrying Padyn MacClaren. Not only that... there will be no engagement period, for she will be getting married today, this moment in fact. Needless to say her world is shaken and her journey takes a different turn with this highlander.
The Highlander's Sword is a lighthearted page-turner. I had a hard time putting the book down. The story is lush in detail from the landscape to everyday life. Amanda Forester weaves an interesting tale. She brings the beautiful and rough Scottish Highlands to life. I thought this was an enjoyable read, I definitely recommend it.
Score: 4 Stars
