His Highland Rose was an easy entertaining read. I wasn’t ready for the ending when it came. It was over before I knew it. The synopsis pretty much tells the entire story so there weren’t any tense surprises or unexpected plot twists. Everything was nicely wrapped up with a happily ever after ending.
The romance between Lain Brodie and Annie was spicy and fun. Brodie’s eyes were set on Annie and no other sister would do. He just had to have her. Annie was set on never marrying so it was fun to see Annie fall under Brodie’s spell. Brodie was irresistible!
All the characters were well developed. I especially enjoyed the bond between the sisters. I know that this story is a prequel to His Highland Love which is a story about Annie’s sister Mary Catherine. I am looking forward to reading her romance with Kenneth who is Lain’s cousin. I also found the relationship between the father and his three daughters to be realistic and a bit humorous. I will say that the three sisters are quite clever. I don’t think the father really stood a chance against them, at least not when they put their heads together to achieve changing his mind.
This is my second book written by Willa Blair that I’ve read and I can say that her writing style makes for a pleasant romantic read. His Highland Rose was a simple yet fun, well-paced enjoyable read. If you haven’t read a book by Willa Blair than I’d suggest you give this one a try.
