Genres: Historical Romance
First in a new historical romantic suspense series by Keira Montclair!
An outlaw. A lass bent on vengeance. Together they are unstoppable.
Maggie Ramsay has never forgotten Randall Baines, the English lord who tormented her beloved sister when they were children. After her sister is injured in a senseless accident, she decides to make Baines pay for what he did…only she gets more than she bargained for. Her brother’s mysterious friend joins her as soon as she leaves her clan alone, insisting on keeping her safe, and when they reach Baines’s castle, she learns the lord is now an earl and his cruelty to women and lassies has only escalated. The discovery fills her with a fire that will not be banked.
Will MacLerie is a notorious outlaw known as the Wild Falconer, hunted for a past he cannot acknowledge for fear of death. His life is devoted to honing his skills as a warrior and anonymously helping those in need, but when he meets Maggie Ramsay, he begins to yearn for something more. A life in which the two of them can travel together freely and fight for the causes they both believe in.
When Will and Maggie discover the depths of Baines’s wickedness, they unite forces to stop the man, come what may. But can they bring down an English earl? Or will they become outlaws for good, forced to live and love in the shadows?
Unfortunately Highland Vengeance was not a win for our book club readers. The readers agreed that the plot was good and, thus, the story could have come together really well. But there were so many mistakes and errors, ranging from typos and language that didn’t flow to incorrect historical terminology. These errors got in the way of enjoyment to the extent that readers had to push themselves to keep going. Since the plot had promise, a really good edit job would probably bump this story up considerably. Readers said they would consider another Keira Montclair book in the future!
