Ravished by a Highlander {Review}

Ravished by a Highlander

(Children of the Mist #1)
by Paula Quinn

Mass Market Paperback, 337 pages
Published May 1st 2010 by Forever (first published 2010)


Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she's been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown's most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal--and a bold rescue--land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.


As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he's not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire...and desperate for more. With Davina's secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can't live without.


First Line(s): High atop Saint Christopher's Abbey, Davina Montgomery stood alone in the bell tower, cloaked in the silence of a world she did not know.

My Review: Ravished by a Highlander was so full of anticipation and surprise. I found myself sitting on the edge with each turn of the page. Davina was so naive in the ways of the world but one can hardly blame her for the way she was raised away from said world. With that said, her being naive didn't make me cringe at the thought of her being weak because that thought never entered my mind while reading Ravished by a Highlander. Robert, oh my sweet Robert, he was what every main male character in a Highlander novel should be. Strong, sexy, a good warrior and protective of what is his! I loved that Paula Quinn kept us waiting for Davina's secret to be revealed ( although a part of you knew to some degree what it was going to be). While waiting for said secret to be revealed Paula Quinn wrapped us into other story lines that kept us on our toes and wanting more. The anticipation of waiting was rewarded with a fantastic story. I can't wait for the next in the series.

My Rating: 4 stars!!

Until next time...

Happy Reading!
