    Golf in the Highlands! - Great springtime read!

    I thought this was a fun book to read. On one hand, it was a typical Highlander romance with "star-crossed lovers", enemies and duels - but it also had a champion -- golfer. I know, golf is said to have originated in Scotland, but I never thought I would run into it in a historical romance! To me, this gave the book a sense of humor as well. Jossy and Drew had both been orphaned as children by the same war. Drew's father had killed Jossy's mother out of mercy on the battlefield. But he still felt guilty so went home and killed himself. Drew is raised by his 3 uncles, and Jossy is raised by the 3 men who found her mother on the battlefield and brought her home. She calls them her 3 dads. Years later Jossy and Drew meet in Scotland. Drew is posing as a Highlander so that he can play golf - at which he is very good. Jossy, by being in the right place at the right time, has been enlisted as a spy for the Queen. She starts working as a beer wench with a beer cart on the local golf courses. It is inevitable that their paths would continue to cross. Jossy was really headstrong, which I liked about her. It gave her some fire to survive in some of the predicaments she found herself in. She was also fiercely loyal to things she loved, regardless of the consequences. Drew was fun-loving and always seemed to deal with each situation with humor. He wasn't beyond setting up his golf partners by betting them drinks per hole, and then losing the hole, only to get them drunk enough that he won the game easily in the end. Where Jossy was all about revenge for her mother and war - Drew did not have a stomach for fighting, and even though was a master swordsman, rarely did he draw his sword. Opposites attract as they say, and these two were in a relationship before they knew what had hit them.
