Marian Robertson is known as the
“Robertson Harlot”, and while it is a name that she doesn’t
deserve, she also doesn’t do anything about people calling
her it either. She does it all to save the life of a child.
Duncan “The Peacemaker of the MacLerie
Clan” is drawn to the beauty that he finds in distress while
scouting the route to his next assignment. He never thinks
that the woman he sees could be the one called the
“Robertson Harlot”. He is further stunned when he is
negotiated (tricked) into marrying her to keep his peace
deal intact. But, what will he do when he learns that not
all is as he believed about Marian. More than that what
will happen when they fall in love, though others will try
and keep them apart?
What a fantastic concept. What one
will do for family love and the love of an innocent child?
Also what duty and clan loyalty would do to a family? There
is more than meets the eye, or in this case the “ruined”
lady, when meeting Marian Robertson as well as her clan
Chief brother. I found Possessed by the Highlander
made me take a moment or two to think how far I would go for
family and if I could withstand all the rumors and
shunning. I found the overall story to be a bit of a twist
on the classic tale of family loyalty and arranged
marriages. I also found that I wanted to smack Duncan a
time to two, but that might have just been me.
Possessed by the Highlander is definitely worth the
time it takes to thoroughly enjoy the story. I think Terri
Brisbin has some new and fresh ideas for this genre.
