Publication Date: October 29, 2019
Zebra Books
eBook & Paperback; 432 Pages
Series: Clan Kendrick, Book #2
Genre: Historical Romance/Scottish

In bestselling author Vanessa Kelly’s irresistible Clan Kendrick series, Christmas in the Highlands means family, celebration—and for one brother, the beginning of a passionate adventure . . .

Being thrown over by the man she expected to marry was humiliating enough. Now that Donella Haddon, grandniece of the Earl of Riddick, has also proven a failure as a nun, she has no choice but to return to her family’s estate. The brawny Highlander sent to escort her is brash, handsome, and the only thing standing between Donella and a gang of would-be kidnappers. But the scandal in her past can’t be so easily outrun . . .

Wealthy widower Logan Kendrick was expecting to meet a plain, pious spinster—not a gorgeous, sharp-tongued lass who can hold her own in any ambush. Though she’s known as the Flower of Clan Graham, Donella is no shrinking violet. In fact, she might be the perfect woman to bring happiness back to his lonely little son’s life, just in time for Christmas. But first he must protect her from ugly gossip and a mysterious threat—and convince her that their wild, unexpected desire is heaven sent.

Review:

The Highlander’s Christmas Bride is the second in a series but can be read as a standalone. It was entertaining. I really enjoyed the witty banter between the characters, the action and the realistically slow burning romance.

The characters are wonderfully written. They were immediately lifelike, and I absolutely loved the dialogue. Vanessa Kelly knows how to bring her characters to life and to keep readers invested in their stories!

The plot was clever and entertaining with enough action to keep me glued to the pages. I’m definitely going back to read the first novel, not because I feel I need to, but because I want more of Vanessa Kelly’s writing. If you enjoy historical romance, this is definitely a worthwhile novel!

Rating:

4/5☆
