Description from Goodreads:


Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she's been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown's most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal--and a bold rescue--land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.


As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he's not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire...and desperate for more. With Davina's secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can't live without.


My thoughts:

Davina Montgomery has spent her life hidden. When her enemies attack she is saved by a handsome Highlander named Robert. He alters his plans to meet his family in England, and vows to keep Davina safe. The attraction between them can’t be denied, but Davina is worried her true identity will bring harm to him and his entire clan.

I really enjoyed the first book in Paula Quinn’s Children of the Mist series. Packed full of sweet romance, beautiful backdrops, and men in kilts. I ate it up. I did have trouble keeping up with who was who and what was what at first. There are quite a few supporting characters along with possible villains. The large cast was a little daunting, but eventually I was able to keep them all straight.

Davina and Rob’s romance was a pleasure to watch progress. Davina’s playful nature paired with the stern and serious Highlander was a perfect combination. An excellent example of opposites attracting. I look forward to spending more time with the MacGregor men as this series continues.
