Fantastic #Historical #RomanticSuspense – Her Accidental Highlander Husband by Allison B. Hanson

Title: Her Accidental Highlander Husband

Author: Allison B. Hanson

 

 

My Review:

This historical romance starts with Marian Fletcher Blackley, Duchess of Endsmere killing her abusive husband, running off to seek sanctuary with her sister in Scotland, about to be captured by bounty hunters who are chasing her when pleads with a stranger for help. That stranger is War Chief Cameron MacKinlay and, to protect her, he claims they’re chasing the wrong person as she’s his wife . . . . however, with the material around their wrists they are now handfasted and really married to each other in Scottish law!

This is a rivetting romance with great characters together with plenty of suspense and action. The danger from the English posed by Marian staying with the MacKinlay clan causes all kinds of rifts and tensions as Marian is determined not to make the clan suffer from her actions. As the romance between her and Cameron develops it portrays the difficulties experienced by victims of spousal abuse even after the abusive relationship has ended. Cameron may well be the fierce and determined War Chief, but he’s also kind, considerate, patient and loving – what a hero! As secrets regarding her relationship  with her first husband are revealed, Cameron is determined to help her feel safe and in no way threatened by him. He attempts to give her confidence to voice her annoyance with him  but these back fire leading to some lovely moments. However, it is the last few chapters that are the most moving in this story – but I’ll leave you to read it for yourself to discover just why!

This is a superb historical romantic suspense and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys this genre – or maybe would like to try it to see if they enjoy it!

Thanks to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
