TESS AND THE HIGHLANDER
Genre: Historical Romance
When Tess washed ashore 11 years ago, she was forced to adapt to island life. Fishing, sheep tending, and independence were all she knew. In the back of her mind, however, terrifying memories lurked, like missing pieces to the puzzle of her foggy childhood. When a Highlander washes ashore on her island, her life does a complete U-turn.
Incredibly handsome and lucky with women, Colin can't understand why Tess is
As Tess and Colin start getting better acquainted, they find they have much more in common then nearly drowning. Colin has fallen for her, and he will do anything to take her home with him. She is tempted to leave not only because of Colin, but because he is friends with a family she knew as a child. But Tess doesn't exactly receive the welcome she expected from them.
I genuinely enjoyed reading this book. The characters were good role models, and their situation was interesting. The villain was original and unexpected, and the heroine was strong and intelligent. Unfortunately, I felt like the author cheated a little bit by making the main characters a bit older then the targeted age group, but all in all, this was a good read. SWEET (Oct., 256 pp., $4.99)
