Paula Quinn’s LAIRD OF THE MIST: A Classic Highlander Love Story
This may be my favorite by author Paula Quinn. And one of my favorite heroes can be found in Laird of the Mist, a worthy Highland romance and a great first in the MacGregor series. It introduces us to a fierce and proud clan, the MacGregors, who historically were officially denounced but eventually regained their position among the clans. Those MacGregor men who kept pride in their heritage and kept their name alive would be stronger than most and worthy of a woman's love.
Set in 17th century Scotland, the story begins as Kate Campbell, a feisty heroine, who is good with a sword, rushes into fight alongside her clan when attacked by their enemies, the MacGregors. Ironically, her life is saved by Callum MacGregor, the man they call “the Devil”, when he sweeps her onto his stallion. From there two enemies become lovers.
I loved the authenticity of this tale and the character development and the way Quinn built the attraction and love between Callum and Kate, who would otherwise be enemies. Quinn brings the Highlands to life.
I did not want to put it down. I highly recommend it.
