Highland Thief is a breathtaking, intriguing, sensual journey. Alyson McLayne weaves a heart-pounding, exciting escapade full of sensuality, action, and romance.
Isobel MacKinnon is the heart and soul of her clan. She has been in love with Kerr MacAlister since childhood. However, an encounter at fifteen when Kerr rejects her kiss and hardens Isobel’s heart. The only woman for Kerr is Isobel, and he is willing to do whatever it takes to secure Isobel’s hand. Through a reckless decision, Kerr and Isobel are thrust into an adventure full of danger and passion.
Isobel is feisty and passionate. She is a lovely character that enchants the reader. Kerr is a battle-hardened warrior with a heart of gold. His is a heart that belongs to Isobel. His strength and intensity are breathtaking. The couple’s connection is fire, and the push and pull between hurt and desire are palatable. Their passion burns brightly off the page; the sensuality is scorching hot. This novel is a story of a family; every character is well developed and unforgettable.
The plot takes the reader on an epic journey. There are twists and turns, fun at times, and an unforgettable ending. The story develops rapidly, following the ardent couple from mistrust and regret to electric heat and fiery love. Highland Thief is the fifth book in The Sons Of Gregor MacLeod. These novels tell the stories of each of Gregor’s sons. Kerr is the final brother; his tale reveals a series-long threat and leaves the reader feeling complete. The story is a splendid tale that excites and entices. It leaves the reader satisfied and happy with such an excellent read. I cannot recommend this novel enough!
