He is no man of honor…
To help his sister heal from a traumatic captivity, Logan Mackenzie reluctantly seeks the Bodyguard Corps’ protection. After so many years as a mercenary, he is resistant to live by their code—until he rescues a beautiful Englishwoman from a snowstorm. He vows to protect Helena, even though she kindles a desire that threatens to expose his shameful past. Now he must fight to regain the honor he thought destroyed years before—or risk losing Helena forever.
She is fleeing for her life…
When a foreboding vision warns Helena that her life is in danger, she escapes from her Borderland castle to the Highland wilds. Under Logan’s care, Helena begins to hope she can trust the scarred warrior with the secret of her curse. When forced to confront the past she abandoned, Helena must choose between surrendering to fate or having the courage to forge her own path with Logan. But will their love be enough to overcome the hidden truths threatening to tear them apart?

The Promise of a Highlander by Emma Prince is one of those WOW stories. While #5, in this highly anticipated series, “Highland Bodyguards”, it can be read as a stand alone. I would however, suggest reading #4, “Claimed by the Highlander” to get more on Logan’s backstory, but not necessary, to thoughly enjoy “The Promise of a Highlander”.
What a fast paced tale with a most enjoyable cast of characters. Well written with many twists and turns, secrets, passion, healing, danger and romance in a time of great Scottish turmoil, treacherous, intrigue and betrayal.
Logan Mackenzie, Helena and Logan’s beloved sister, Mairin, are the stars in “The Promise of a Highlander”, and what a cast they present. A heart warming, gut wrenching and delicious love story. Logan and Helena’s story will take your breathe away, as you learn more of their troubled past, their secrets and watch their healing process. I absolutely loved this story! I was not disappointed in Logan’s back story, nor has secrets and the hurt he carried, it helped make him the man he became.
Emma Prince has done it again! She never seizes to amaze me with her ability to tell a story and draw the reader into the story. Her characterization, her descriptions and her research of Scotland is magnificent. Another masterpiece! Highly recommended! ! Well done, indeed, Emma Prince!! I can’t wait for the next installment.
