New Review: Brenda Taylor’s A HIGHLAND PEARL – Inspirational Highland Romance

Set in Ross Shire in the Highlands of Scotland in 1508, this is the story of Maidie Cameron Munro, widow and healer, who is called upon to tend the wounds of Laird Andrew Munro, the Black Falcon of Ferindonald.

Maidie and Andrew are caught in the middle of clan warfare that has her father at war with Andrew who she is coming to love. Along the way, Andrew ends up in a dungeon where he finds his faith.

I like the way Taylor writes. Very visual, very clear, and authentic to the era. Her descriptions make me I feel like I’m in the room with Maidie. She obviously did much research into the Munro clan for the book, too. I loved the developing romance between Maidie and Andrew and the fact that others wanted her, too. I did think Andrew’s conversion a bit sudden and then shortly after he kills a guard that he might have just hit over the head. There’s lots of action to keep you turning pages.

If you like sweet Highland romance with sexual tension (but no love scenes) and action, and some inspiration, you will find it in this one.
