My #Review for Her Reluctant Highlander Husband by Allison B. Hanson – brill historical romance!

Title: Her Reluctant Highlander Husband

Series: Clan MacKinlay #2

Author: Allison B. Hanson

Publisher: Entangled Publishing, Entangled: Amara

 

My thanks to Entangled and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed. This is the second book in the Clan Mackinlay series but it may be read as a standalone although characters from the previous book also appear in this one – and it was great to catch up on them!

Bryce MacKinlay Campbell, war chief of Clan MacKinlay, has never recovered from returning from battle to discover his beloved wife and young daughter dead from fever. He is ordered by his Laird to marry Dorie McCurdy, who has never met, to help forge an alliance between the two clans. He’s shocked when she arrives in an ill fitting gown, dishevelled and with bare feet. She’s also mute. Her family’s treatment of her shocks him and he agrees to provide for her but says he’ll never love again.

For the previous nine years Dorie McCurdy has lived in a single room, a prisoner, terrified of what will happen if she speaks again. Both have suffered enormous loss and heartbreaking pain. Can they help each other heal and find a new reason to live – together?

This story is packed with family drama and secrets. With the McCurdy clan plotting, Dorie’s life in danger and there’s a scruffy pup, Rascal, that grows into a huge protector. Dorie’s father is an intriguing addition to the story and his actions, motivations and plans aren’t revealed until the end. This is a fascinating addition to the series which I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into and have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys historical Highlander romance and drama.
