Overview

Battle-hardened warrior Dirk MacLerie isn't who everyone thinks he is. He's Dirk MacKay, heir apparent to the MacKay chiefdom and Dunnakeil Castle on the far north coast of Scotland. When he returns home after a long absence, will his clan know him and will the duplicitous enemy who tried to murder him twelve years ago kill him in truth this time?

Lady Isobel MacKenzie is a beautiful young widow betrothed to yet another Highland chief by her brother's order. But when her future brother-in-law accosts her and threatens to kill her, she is forced to flee into a Highland snowstorm. When she runs into a rugged and imposing man she thought dead, she wonders if he will turn her over to her enemy or take her to safety.

Dirk remembers the enchanting, dark-eyed Isobel from when he was a lad, but now she is bound to another man by legal contract-an important detail she would prefer to forget. She wishes to choose her own husband and has her sights set on Dirk. But he would never steal another man's bride... would he? The tantalizing lady fires up his passions, testing his willpower and honor at every turn, even as some of his own treacherous clansmen plot his downfall.

Editorial Reviews

A.L. Snider
An intriguing tale of Love, Loss, Betrayal and heart stopping romance! A story you definitely DON'T want to miss! You gotta love those Highlanders!
Eliza Knight History Undressed - Eliza Knight
I REALLY enjoyed My Brave Highlander. Lots of action and sensuality--Dirk is so intense and yet when he's near Isobel the heat crackles and his defenses fall. The scenery is vivid and magical. I felt like I was in the midst of the Highlands, the snow falling and melting on my cheeks. Beyond the sizzling sensual tension (which Ms. Sinclair is an expert at weaving!) the adventurous plot had me on the edge of my seat. And Dirk's enemy--HATED with a passion. Ms. Sinclair has the unique ability...

4.5 Flames When I first picked this book up, I was surprised at how quickly it captured my attention and then I remembered that it’s a Vonda Sinclair book, and wanted to smack myself, because DUH! Of course it sucked me in, she’s a fantastic writer. I think the intensity of this book is increased because it’s not just a simple love story, it’s not just a simple rescue, and well, to be honest, NOTHING is simple in this book. I love this series!
Night Owl Reviews - Tigger9 -
5 Stars, Top Pick, I loved My Brave Highlander. It was an excellent read. The characters were written extremely well, all of them. I fell in love with them from the beginning. Isobel and Dirk are great together; I was rooting for them from the very beginning. Isobel is a strong woman that is handling what has happened to her really well. I love the fact that she doesn't back down. The flow of the story is really smooth. The story moves at a good pace. I was drawn in from the beginning...

    Loved it

    Wonderful story, well written and easily holds ones attention to the end! I read this as the 2nd in the series, but it would be just as enjoyable and spellbinding even if I had read it out of sequence. Love all the books I've read by Ms Sinclair... She pulled me into their world.

    Good read

    Enjoyed book very much. Since my family was from Scotland - the MacKay clan, I found it very interesting. Even the tartan shown on the cover is the plaid I have always associated with my ancestors. Made the book very personal for me but anyone would find it an exciting read.

    Amazing! I just finished reading "My Brave Highlander"

    Amazing!
    I just finished reading "My Brave Highlander" written by Vonda Sinclair!
    Wow, I loved her first 2 books and I devoured this hot and sizzling Scottish romance!
    It's her third book in her "Highland Adventure" series. It's intriguing! It's the story
    of Dirk and Isobel, two incredible and charming characters! I am addicted to Highland
    romances and cannot wait to start reading her fourth book "My Daring Highlander"
    which is the story of Torrin and Jessie. Ms. Sinclair is truly a great writer of Scottish
    adventure, it's fast paced, breathless, hot and sexy! If you love to read an amazing
    Scottish historical romance, then this book is for you! Sexual intensity that keeps
    you reading! When you start this novel, you won't be able to stop.
    I highly recommend this book. You won't be disappointed.

    A Great Trilogy

    This is te third book of Vonda Sinclair's. The first two books are My Fierce Highlander and My Wild Highlander. You should read all three. In My Brave Highlander, Dirk MacLerie gets a message that his father is dying. He has to admit to his friends that he is really Dirk McKay and that he ran away when he was 15 because his stepmother tried to kill him. He knows that he will be in danger when he gets home but hopes he gets to see his father before he dies. Along the way he finds Isobel MacKenzie who is running away from her betroth's brother who tried to rape her. Dirk claims his right to be Laird and refuses to let Isobel go. A very good story and great trilogy.

    Vonda Sinclair is a masterful storyteller

    My Brave Highlander is solid gold. Dirk & Isobel are perfect for each other. I hope to hear more of them as other stories unfold - I especially love reunions where you find out how other characters are doing.

    Keep the stories coming and I'll keep reading them. Cheers!
