The Angel and the Highlander by Donna Fletcher


Historical Romance

ISBN: 9780061712982

Reviewed by Talia Ricci



Lachlan Sinclare has been sent by Lord Bunnock to return his daughter to her home.  Lady Alyce has decided to avoid marriage and has run away to an abbey.  She doesn’t want to marry the man her father has chosen for her and would rather assume the persona of Terese, a nun than of Alyce, a wife.  Lachlan just wants to return Alyce to her family – he never expected to fall for a beautiful woman of God.

On the blurb for this novel, Alyce is described as shrewish.  The blurb was being nice I am sad to say. She was not at all likeable as a character and more than once I just wanted Lachlan to leave her where she stood. Stubborness in a heroine is a great trait, stubbornness to the point that the female lead becomes a pain to read, then enough is enough. Lachlan deserved better. 

Donna Fletcher just didn’t satisfy my historical romance loving soul with The Angel and the Highlander.  I would suggest skipping this book and finding one where the lead characters actually connect.
