Overview

Defiant Highland beauty Fiona Sinclair is shocked by her brothers’ treachery. To seal a fragile truce, they have traded her hand in marriage to their sworn enemy, a man she has never met, a man she was raised to despise. With no choice but to wed, Fiona makes her own private vow: though she may sacrifice her freedom, she will never surrender her heart.

But Myles quickly realizes Fiona Sinclair isn’t some common wench: she has a warrior’s spirit and a fierce pride that only a fool would try to tame. And Myles Campbell is no fool.

Their marriage was meant to unite warring clans. They never imagined it would ignite a once-in-a-lifetime love.…

    Highland Surrender was a delightful read, and author Tracy Broga

    Highland Surrender was a delightful read, and author Tracy Brogan proves she can switch from contemporary to historical with more ease than changing out one's shoes. In Highland Surrender, Scottish clan warfare takes center stage for the developing love story. Fiona and Myles are strong individuals forced into a union by the king. Fiona things Myles' family killed her mother, and so she does not approach this wedding with anything close to bliss. Over the course of the book, she comes to realized her preconceived notions of Myles's family may be wrong... and that her new husband is someone worth loving.
    With a moderate heat rating, beautiful imagery, and historically accurate setting, Brogan's second book dazzles. Now if only she would hurry up and write a sequel already.

    Summary  Fiona Sinclair, is duty bound to marry the enemy of her

    Summary 
    Fiona Sinclair, is duty bound to marry the enemy of her clan, who was responsible for their mothers murder. The last thing she wants to do is marry the murders son, but King James has commanded it to happen, so in order to protect her clan. So Fiona goes ahead with marrying the enemy, never realizing that the enemy, Myles Campbell is not what she expected. Myles is frustrated that he is forced to marry a woman from an enemy clan, when he would prefer marrying a woman that he cares for. But when the King commanded this of him, he knew he must obey his King’s decree, no matter how much he doesn’t want to. his wife, Fiona, is infuriating, stubborn and willful. She has a pride streak a mile wide, and is quite resistant to him, but he can’t resist her, she is feisty and passionate. Two warriors of two separate clans, forced into an alliance, and a union that will test their loyalty and honor and will the matters of the heart win…




    The Hero 
    Myles Campbell is his father’s son, and as the eldest has always done what was commanded of him. He grew up with love from his parents who taught him honor and courage. Myles is a man who has been taught to lead, and takes command of every situation, and when he marries a willful lass, he is determined to reign her in. But he soon learns that his wife is not the typical highland lass, that she despises him, but there is a desire he feels for her despite her hatred of him and everything Campbell. Myles was a magnificent hero, and what a character he was. He was so patient with Fiona’s antics, and loved seeing him so patient and understand of her, despite her “willful” nature. He is hardworking and has integrity.




    The Heroine 
    Fiona Sinclair, has grown up with the hatred with the Campbells, even though she was once betrothed to Myles before her mother was killed. She is furious that her brothers are forcing her to marry a man she despises, and that they would throw her to the wolves. Fiona hates Myles and doesn’t hold back anything from him. She is full of pride, willful and stubborn, and sees a traitor around every corner. She is quite hard headed at times, but she is also honest to a fault and acts on what she believes is the right thing. I had some issues with the heroine, but her actions were quite entertaining, and her character is definitely very spirited.




    Plot and Story Line 
    This is the first book that I have read from this author, and I was able to read it in audio book format. It has been a little while since I have had the chance to read an audio book, and now that I have started it up again, I want to continue, I had forgotten how much I enjoy listening to audio books, especially since I do a ton of walking, but I decided to try this story out, and I just have an incredible weakness for a sexy Highlander. I had no problem reading this one, and it didn’t take me very long to get through it, and as a whole, I really enjoyed this one, but I did have some issues with it. number one is the heroine, she really bothered me quite a bit. Now I love angst romances, but this one I had a more difficult time with. She was pretty conceited, and not willing to compromise or work with Myles very well, and he was an angel compared to what she dished out. I just had so much sympathy for the hero, because he was trying so hard to forget about the hatred between the clans, and accept their marriage. He understood that it wouldn’t be roses and daisies, but he never gave up trying to make their marriage work. And even though he could get a bit impatient at times, he still came through as an honest and loyal soul that you just admire from the beginning. She does have hard feelings, and I understood why, but I had the hardest time fathoming why she could be so harsh at times, but don’t worry, she isn’t like this through all of it. She does redeem herself to me, and proves to be quite the heroine, and by the end I just ended up loving her character. What I found admirable about this story and the way that the author writes it, is the way she portrays human faults and attributes, how you see the positive and the negative. Other than this heroine, I had quite a fun time with this story. The narration was done really well, and she is very talented, and I loved the way she put in place the Scottish brogue, which was a delightful touch. Highland Surrender is a love story that is about facing your fears and finding love when you least expect it. A story that test the dedication and loyalty to ones heart. If you love a good historical romance, with a fresh voice, this is a story you need to put at the top of your list. I do hope this author plans on more historical romances,




    The Cover 
    I adored this cover, and ever since I first saw it last year, I wanted to pick up the story. I love her dress, so elegant and classy. And her hair is such a beautiful golden red, if only I could make my hair look that well done. I love the pose of the hero behind the heroine, and those shoulders–delicious.




    Overall View 
    Highland Surrender is a riveting love story with the passion and history of the medieval time period, a time of war and mistrust, and passion of a people wanting their freedom. This is a tale of fierce desire, with vibrant characters, and a plot that is packed with intrigue and a sensuality you don’t want to miss out on.  INTOXICATING!

    This was a brilliant highland romance.  Brogan takes the story o

    This was a brilliant highland romance.  Brogan takes the story of ‘marriage by order of the king’ and runs with it.  She mixes romance, history, and battle scenes together to create an intriguing tale.  She weaves together an intricate story and develops the land and scenery to support it.  

    The characters in this novel were well put together and developed in a manner that makes them seem real and believable.  I really appreciated how the heroine was able to stand on her own, rather than being a meek heiress with others waiting on her.  The male lead was also a well-rounded individual who was easy to like but that was not a pushover.

    All in all this was an awesome trip back in time and a brilliant escape from reality.

    Highland Surrender

    This is a wonderful historical romance story and I recommend it highly. To seal a fragile truce, Fiona Sinclair has been traded by her brothers' and her hand given in marriage to their sworn enemy, Myles Campbell, a man she was raised to despise. Commanded into marriage by the King, Myles Campbell is no more willing than his reluctant bride. Still, she is a rare beauty, passionate enough to warm even the coldest marriage bed. But Myles quickly realizes Fiona Sinclair isn't some common wench; she has a warrior's spirit and a fierce pride that only a fool would try to tame. And Myles Campbell is no fool. Their marriage was meant to unite warring clans. They never imagined it would ignite a once-in-a-lifetime love. There is a couple of surprises in the story dealing with secrets about Fiona's dead mother and another secret dealing with one of her brothers, but I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't read the book yet. Get the book and find out for yourself! Great love story and family drama in a historical setting. Highly recommend this book.
