Rurik Erengislsson’s childhood friends,
Magnus and Sven, have come to Lairig Dubh where Rurik has been
living with his uncle and the Clan MacLerie to tell Rurik that
his father wants him to come back home and take his rightful
place as heir. As a bastard son, Rurik has always craved the
acceptance and love of his father so he returns.
Rurik is sent by his father to fetch
Margriet Gunnarsdottir from the convent she has been living in
for years and bring her home. Rurik is fascinated by Margriet.
Although she dresses as a nun and even claims to be one, Rurik
is sure she is not. He intends to find out why she is
pretending. Margriet is hiding more than one secret. As she
journey’s home to her father she regrets her lies to Rurik but
Margriet is convinced that she has no other choice.
Rurik and Margriet have much in common
and their mutual attraction continues to grow. Is there a
future for them together when they return home and truths are
revealed and lies exposed?
Surrender to the Highlander
is an angst filled romance filled with forbidden love and
unfulfilled desires. I liked both Rurik and Margriet. I was
almost convinced there was no way for them to be together. The
story unfolds dramatically and romantically. Surrender
to the Highlander is a good story with a perverse and
cruel villain and many amiable characters.
