Highlander's Prize by Mary Wine

Acclaimed author Mary Wine captures all of the raw, rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands, where tumultuous times bred a race of warriors who fought for country, keep, and kin, and loved as passionately as they lived.
Beautiful Clarrisa is sent to Scotland to marry the king, but is soon thwarted by the handsome Laird Broen MacNichols. For Broen, Clarrisa becomes far more than a kidnapped prize. Sparks fly as he enjoys sparring with the intelligent and independent-minded lady from York. Captive turns captor when Broen loses his heart and risks everything to keep Clarissa for himself.

Reviewer: Fashtiona
With a royal bastard as a lead character this book already has the makings to be an excellent read. I love when a character makes something good out of their life and we get a female royal bastard in the 15th century. I was only on page 17 and I was already falling in love with the book, the magic continued to the very last page.

The bantering of such shocking remarks
“I’ll bid ye a good night, lass.” Faolan pointed at two of his retainers, and the men pulled on their bonnets before starting toward her.

“I hope you choke on your cider,” she answered sweetly. “And wake up in a privy.”
turned this book into a fun yet exciting journey of a precarious time in the history of Scotland and England.

I have to give this book five out five stars. In my eyes, it was the perfect historical novel as well as a historical romance that didn’t hold anything back, I enjoy a book that doesn’t make concessions.
