Overview

Who can you trust? Betrayed by his brother and his childhood love, Brice Kinross needs a fresh start. So he welcomes the opportunity to leave Sweden for the Scottish Highlands to take over the family estate. But there’s trouble afoot at Rosyth in 1754 and Brice finds himself unwelcome. The estate’s in ruin and money is disappearing. He discovers an ally in Marsaili Buchanan, the beautiful redheaded housekeeper, but can he trust her? Marsaili is determined to build a good life. She works hard at being housekeeper and harder still at avoiding men who want to take advantage of her. But she’s irresistibly drawn to the new clan chief, even though he’s made it plain he doesn’t want to be shackled to anyone. And the young laird has more than romance on his mind. His investigations are stirring up an enemy. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what he wants – including Marsaili – even if that means destroying Brice’s life forever …

Editorial Reviews

Star Magazine
This sequel to Trade Winds is passionate and engaging, with some amazingly evocative descriptions of the rugged Highlands. A great winter read.
Lovereading
A fabulous setting - Scotland - coupled with some vivid characters that provide romance and heartache in equal measure. As with many of the books published by Choc Lit, this one is a real treat.
From the Publisher
Shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists' Association Historical Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2012
RT Book Reviews
Author Courtenay’s investment in Highland history pays off big time... Good historical romances allow readers to romp around and experience bygone days, allow you to sympathize and relate to the characters via past events and often gives a budding relationship that extra oomph of tension. Great historical fiction builds on all of those things while grounding each and every character’s motivations in the long past events. For the record, Courtenay’s Highland Storms is a great historical romance.
Historical Novel Society
Set in 1754, Highland Storms is the sequel to Trade Winds. While not awash with historical detail, the plot of the story itself, along with descriptions of the people and surrounding countryside, are captivating. Add treachery and romance to the mix, and you find yourself with a well written, fast-paced, enjoyable read.
Romantic Times
Like Diana Gabaldon, Courtenay brings the Highlands, following the Battle of Culloden, to life. Readers will almost smell the heather and feel Brice's emotional pain, and they will be swept up by the atmosphere and held captive by the quick pace and tense moments. Courtenay's gift for untangling threads, so that good will triumph, is what makes this a winner. 4 1/2 stars!
Long and Short Reviews
Christina Courtenay sweeps the reader into the story with tense moments for Marsaili then weaves a plot that looks like an impossible tangle of events and emotional hang-ups.. Her amazing untangling of it all, so that good wins over evil and the hero and heroine realize their true love holds the reader’s attention from start to finish.
The Bookbag
She tells her story well in light and uncomplicated but also entertaining prose. If you enjoy light romantic fiction with a nice line in Scottish Highland history, then this book should probably tick quite a few boxes.
