ARC REVIEW: Her Highland Rogue by Violetta Rand

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Errol MacRae’s days of gallivanting across the Highlands are nearing an end. His father’s health has taken a turn for the worse, and rumors are swirling that the crown intends to transfer ancient lands into the hands of the MacKenzies, the clan the MacRaes are sworn to defend. Errol expects to lead his men into battle soon. So he isn’t pleased when his father instead sends him to retrieve a beautiful flame-haired lass who has fled into the mountains.

Orphaned as a young girl, Aileana vividly remembers how the MacRaes rescued her and welcomed her into their clan. For ten years, she has served them loyally—until the night she’s nearly despoiled by one of the laird’s captains. Aileana risks her life and her reputation to seek refuge in the snowcapped peaks of the Five Sisters, the one place that has always felt like home. But after the strong-armed, strong-willed Errol tracks her down in a blizzard, she finds herself tempted to risk something even more dangerous: her heart.

Think Cinderella meets The Highlands...or Fairytale Smut!
I enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I would, although it did involve quite a bit of beliefs being suspended. Her Highland Rogue is an historical romance with a bit of a fantastical twist. Aileana, is found wondering near the MacRae keep and taken in by their Laird, her arrival is accompanied with suspicions of being a foundling and even a spy sent by the MacKenzies or was it the MacDonalds. Errol MacRae the future Laird and son to the current Laird is sent to find Aileana when she flees the keep because of unwanted attention from one of his men. And so begins the insta-love. Whew! Well that was a mouthful.

Aileana and Errol's love story is a whirlwind one, that is probably highly unbelievable but holey entertaining and I most definitely did not complain. My only complaint is that the story was paced a wee bit too fast. Back to my Cinderella reference, Aileana is a kitchen maid who falls in love with the bossy and broody future Laird. She's always had a soft spot for Errol and when he comes to her rescue... well how much more romantic can things get.

This was a light, sweet and slightly cringe inducing story (because of all the sexist comments), but it was quite addicting and entertaining. It you're looking for an HR with a lot of spice and sweet HEA's you should probably give this a go. Read it with a grain of salt and don't overthink it.

I will worship you forever. 

Love you forever.

Cherish you forever. 

And fill you with my seed forever.
