REVIEW · The Highlanders Hidden Heart

READ ☆ NATURAL-TREATMENT.CO.UK É Kathryn Le Veque

Extended Edition As a child Jackston Forbes made a promise to lovely and pushy Lizelle Menzies A man of his word Jackston never forgot that promise Through the years of experience and growth Jackston has become a powerful warrior now. As a 12 year old Jackston Forbes accidentally gets himself engaged to Lizelle a 9 year old spoiled little heiress 13 years later his father expects him to either uphold the promise he inadvertently made or show up talk to her father and get himself out of it honorably Jackston really doesn't want to marry but having not seen Lizzie in 13 years he decides to talk with her first Jackston uickly learns that she's a cruel mean woman who treats her servants like dogs He most especially notices her treatment to Rora a young serving woman that Jackston feels an attraction for and a connection to And while he finds himself contemplating the unthinkable and actually offering marriage to Rora he first has to get himself out of an engagement he doesn't wantThis was well written and a nice uick easy read but didn't really do much for me I'm sorry to be in the minority here It had an interesting and uniue premise of a guy having to get himself out of an unwanted betrothal and finding himself falling for someone totally unsuitable But I didn't feel like there was enough length in the story to really build a relationship between Jackston and Rora It relied very much on that instant connection they had and they barely had any time to actually interact before he was ready to take her home and marry him And I was far interested in how Jackston would put the smack down on Lizzie instead of their romance There was also a slightly uncomfortable moment as he's kissing her in a barn and realizes the power difference between them and he does the right thing asks her if she wants him to stop She doesn't give a clear answer though only that they shouldn't because she'll get in trouble before he's off and kissing her again I don't know that it was clear enough consent And because this was a clean romance I wasn't entirely sure if they'd consummated the relationship or notso I couldn't fully know if he abused his station especially since he hadn't yet decided to marry her But whatevs I understand that the epilogue is probably added on to this extended edition but it didn't really add to this story unless it was setting it up to be a series Rather than wrapping things up nicely this sets up a problem and a solution that feels like it's starting a story for their eldest son The epilogue did not feel like an epilogue

SUMMARY The Highlanders Hidden Heart

The Highlanders Hidden HeartAs become it becomes a difficult choice for him will he remain true to a childhood vow or will he follow his heart Note Originally published in The Forbidden Highlands collection 42017 this is an extended version never before publishe. This is a delightful novella and hopefully a preuel to stories about the Forbes family and their history As with all of Kathryn Le Veue's books the characters are strongly developed and their personalities are such that it's easy to become emotionally invested in them and their outcome This is the first time I believe that I've listened to Nick Cracknell as a narrator I must say I most definitely give him 5 stars for his wonderful performance in bringing the story and characters to life I look forward to hearing of his work This is an awesome audiobook and easy to recommend especially to any who are unsure if they will enjoy the audible experience
