Highland Surrender By: Tracy Brogan

To seal a fragile truce, Fiona Sinclair’s brothers trade her in marriage to their sworn enemy. Though devastated by their betrayal, she has little choice in the matter, for if she refuses, her innocent young sister must take her place. Although the spirited Fiona is willing to sacrifice her freedom to protect her kin, she vows to never surrender her heart.

As eldest son of a clan chief, Myles Campbell is accustomed to having his own way. But when the Scottish King commands he wed a defiant Highland lass instead of the French mademoiselle who holds his heart, Myles must obey his royal duty. Meeting his bride for the first time on their wedding day, he is pleased to discover the lass is a beauty, but dismayed to learn she’d just as soon kill him as kiss him. 

And thus begins an uneasy alliance.

When two such warrior spirits collide, sparks fly, igniting a fiery passion that strains against the bonds of family honor, clan loyalty—and the ultimate surrender – love.

What an adorable love story!

It was so nice getting back to on my of my favorite reads, Scottish Highlander love stories!

Fiona Sinclair has been raised to loath the Campbell's. After the arranged marriage between her and Myles Campbell to set up a truce between the two families, she does everything in her power (in the 1500's mind you) to drive Myles mad and let him know she hates everything about him.

After secrets are revealed, Fiona starts to give in to her attraction to Myles and they quickly become that couple everyone envies because of their relationship.

Extreme attraction gives off to wonderful anticipation for even just a kiss in Highland Surrender. After reading so much more intense books, I've started to forget the power of attraction and what the simple touches could be like.

Tracy Brogan has done a fantastic job of getting me back into the traditional love stories. Fiona and Myles kept me on the edge of my seat wondering when her silly head was going to just give in and even wonder if Myles was going to just give up!

I really loved this story and I've enjoyed it more that I thought I would. It had been in my "to-read" pile for so long, and I finally gave in and read it. I guess I should say "gave in"...sounds like I didn't wan to read it. I love Scottish Highlander books, and this story didn't disappoint so I think I should say "I jumped at the chance and read it!" Hehe
