ON A HIGHLAND HILL by Kara Griffin is an exciting Scottish Medieval Historical Romance set in 1215 Scotland. WOW! Holly Highlander! Those Highland Hills will capture your heart and soul not to mention the men.  Fast paced and passion filled. Meet Kenneth McInnish, guardsman for the powerful Gunn Clan and Elisa. Reluctantly Kenneth marries Elisa, who was stolen by his clan from the King. A very tender albeit passionate story of grief, the powerful need of a Scotsman to protect what is his, a bit of danger, facing your demons, and finding happiness. From the first kiss to the last, Kenneth knows he is lost, for Elisa is his soul and the savior of his heart. Elisa will do anything to protect Kenneth and his clan, but things go awry. Oh yeah a bit of trickery was involved in Kenneth’s marriage to the sly, but sweet Elisa. A must read story with engaging characters and an intriguing storyline. This was my first read by this author and my first in this series, but I do plan to go back and read the….rest of the story or the beginning of the Gunn Guardsmen story! Well done indeed! There is not a lot of guts and gore in this Highland story but lots of love,passion, a bit of trickery, and a bit of danger.  Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.
