takes a modern romance into the historical times of the
Scottish rebellion with nuances and actions that seem
irreconcilable. Sorcha is a strong willed woman out of her
time with her thirst for knowledge and sexual daring. Alan
seems, on the surface, to be a traditional man of his time
with the conflicts and traditional views of womankind and
their place in the world. Cam fits the mold of an out of
control rogue that will stop at nothing to gain what he
desires – even at the expense of his long-standing
relationship with Alan. The interactions between the three
of them feel genuine until the end when there is a ménage
scene that, while reconciling the characters, seems so out
of place as to jar the reader out of the story and
historical time frame. All in all, Highlander
Obsession is a romantic tale that would have
benefitted from a more modern time frame or a more
traditional interaction between the characters to deliver
what would have been a truly romantic historical read. Get
yourself Highlander Obsession when you are
looking for a romance that delivers plenty of angst,
passion, and emotional upheaval.
