Lady Callie Whitcomb is running for her life. In a desperate attempt to escape an arranged marriage to Lord Huntington, Callie leaves her step-brother Archibald who has the intention of marry her off to the despicable man. She turns to the only man who can help her – Colin MacPherson aka Hawk.
However, Hawk has vengeance on his mind when he realizes Callie’s true identity. As the kin of his great enemy, Hawk seeks to exact revenge once and for all. But can Hawk continue to ignore Callie’s presence or will he succumb to his desires and fall prey to his passion?
While I wasn’t too keen on the main characters, I did think the story was good. For some reason, I could not relate to Callie. In the beginning, she seemed too overdramatic. I couldn’t follow why she was so desperate to escape until later on. Also, I did not like the fact that at one moment Hawk was admiring Callie from afar, but then suddenly he hears news about her identity and suddenly, he wants nothing to do with her. I wished for a little more consistency in the character’s personalities.
Highland Honor is a story filled with exactly what the title entails. Honor is the prevalent theme. If you enjoy highlanders and honourable men, then I suggest checking this book out.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
