Niall MacIan, a Highland laird, desperately needs funds to save his impoverished clan. Lady Katherine Ruthven, a lowland heiress, is rumored to be “unmarriageable” and her uncle hopes to be granted her title and lands when the king sends her to a convent. King David II anxious to strengthen his alliances sees a solution that will give Ruthven the title he wants, and MacIan the money he needs. Laird MacIan will receive Lady Katherine’s hand along with her substantial dowry and her uncle will receive her lands and title.
Lady Katherine must forfeit everything in exchange for a husband who does not want to be married and believes all women to be self-centered and deceitful. Can the lovely and gentle Katherine mend his heart and build a life with him or will he allow the treachery of others to destroy them?
As an avid reader of Scottish Romance, I am always on the lookout for new authors in this sub-genre. Ms. Giltenan did not disappoint! I could not put this book down until I had read “The End”.
Niall MacIan personifies the perfect alpha male hero. The horror and reaction to Katherine’s wounds was realistic and amazing. However, it was the moment he agreed to become Tomas’s father…that I was in love. What an amazing man! *Sighs*
Katherine was the epitome of strength that I love in heroines. Though she suffered horrible abuses at her uncle’s hand, she was a survivor and a protector to those in her care. Even though Niall’s character was an imposing figure, Katherine never cowered to his temper or accusations.
This story was wrought with danger, treachery, conflict and it was the ultimate page turner. The connection between the Niall and Katherine was tender and passionate. If you love Scottish historicals, then you do not want to miss out on reading Highland Solution by Ceci Giltenan.
