Dashing Commander Graham Grant is still riding with Robert
(the Earl of Argyll, brother-in-law to Callum MacGregor) as
was hinted at the end of Laird of the Mist.

never been so entranced by a woman as he is with the one
they come upon, who is tied to a tree.
He canít believe her fortitude and strength, or her
skill with arms.
When he finds out who she is, he is in further
conflict as helping her and making her his own might do the
one thing a highlander will not do Ė betray an oath and a
Claire makes him feel things that he has never felt with all

even bedded her.

leave her alone.

is going on she is so confused she seeks the advice of her

like a lady or not, she will not see herself or her
sister married by arrangement.
Will Claire and Graham finally work out their differences
and be together?

whose side is General Monck really on?
A Highlander Never Surrenders
is both the title of a fantastic new story by Paula Quinn as
well as a motto for both the male and female leads of this
story. You see
some favorites back in this book from Laird of the Mist
as well as many new charming, and not so charming ones.
Ms. Quinn continues to bring parts of history alive
for me, and makes me want to learn more about a time that I
don't have much knowledge in.
The way her characters come alive sends me off to see
which ones could be real and which ones she has added to the
story to make it flow.
Realizing that this is a fiction story with some real
life names, dates and places made this story come more alive
to me. I was
hooked from the first page until the last.
Ok, so on the last page Ms. Quinn made me want more,
now Ė not a year from now when the next one is likely to be
A Highlander Never
Surrenders for July 2008 and hope that you will be
one of the first in line at the story to get it, better yet
pre-order it online.
