My thoughts: 

Highland Flame by Mary Wine is another fabulous Highland Romance. #4 in her exciting “Highland Weddings” series, but it can be read as a stand alone.

Laird Diocail Gordon just inherited uncle’s run down castle and the rag-tag Gordon clan. He is anot impressive warrior but, can he prove himself capable of being a good laird, not just a good warrior, and will he be able help his clan prosper and re-build. Lady Jane Stanley, a widow, who is determined to return to England, at all cost, including tromping, on foot, in the cold, wild Scottish Highlands. Nearly , frozen and hungry, she comes into the midst of a troop of dangerous Highland warriors. And thus this captivating tale begins…..well there is more to it than that, but I don’t wish to give anything away….

Well written Scottish Romance with captivating, interesting and entertaining characters. The plot flows seamlessly and is well excuted. I loved “Highland Flame”! Put the feisty, determined,red-haired, beauty, Jane with the myterious, no non-sense, handsome, Diocail and sparks fly off the pages.

Ms. Wine definitely brings forth a story rich in history, Highland traditions, and one that captives as well as, keeps you glued to the pages of a fast paced tale of love, passion, treachery and determination. Mesmerizing! ! Another well done, Highland Romance by Mary Wine. Never a dull moment for sure!

This is a story of a flawed character, who must fulfill an Ancient Vow. Either become a nun or  if she can  find true love and marry before her eighteenth year she will be exempt from the Vow.
An interesting tale of knights, betrayal, fulfilling a vow, and the power of true love. Well written, with engaging characters and an unique storyline.
