As a dutiful daughter and subject of King George, Lady Juliet Kingston agrees to travel to Scotland to marry the son of an important Laird in My Highlander Husband by Nancy Pennick. Unsure of what to expect, Juliet discovers similarities between castle McClaren and her home, making the idea of leaving the man she loves a bit easier. Then, when she finally meets Ross, the chemistry flares and Juliet becomes devoted to him and his family.
War breaks out between the Jacobites, supporters of the exiled King James, and George, the King of England. Unable to accept Juliet’s decision to remain in Scotland, her former beau, Lord John Alder, decides to trade her for the McClaren family’s peace. As the conflict continues, some family is lost and others must flee persecution for their role in past misdeeds, bringing sorrow to everyone concerned. Will Juliet ever be a real part of the family and have a life with her Highlander Husband?
My Highlander Husband by Nancy Pennick is a delightful historical romance without some of the graphic steaminess some might expect. The characters are strong with distinct personalities and they move through the action quite realistically. Descriptions of the scenery and settings are detailed, putting you right into the story with the characters. The history of the period comes alive with back stories and a broader description of the conflict and its consequences. Thoroughly enjoyable and interesting! This is certainly a book to be enjoyed by anyone who is partial to Scottish historical novels and it makes a wonderful first volume of what should be a successful series, The Clan McClaren. I look forward to the other books in the series.
