The Highlander's Heart by Amanda Forester

She's nobody's prisoner...and he's nobody's fool.

Lady Isabelle Tynsdale's flight over the Scottish border would have been the perfect escape, if only she hadn't run straight into the arms of a gorgeous Highland laird. Whether his plan is ransom or seduction, her only hope is to outwit him, or she'll lose herself entirely...

Laird David Campbell thought Lady Isabelle was going to be easy to handle and profitable too. He never imagined he'd have such a hard time keeping one enticing English countess out of trouble. And out of his heart.

The Highlander's Heart combines intrigue, suspense, and pulse-pounding romance. From start to finish, the book takes the reader on an unforgettable journey with characters that come to life on the page. Amanda Forester has penned a novel that historical romance fans will thoroughly enjoy, with multiple twists and turns that will keep readers on their toes. The heroine, Isabelle, is the perfect balance of strong and vulnerable. Knowing she faces certain death, she relies on her wit and instinct to survive. Nothing in her world is black and white, and there is no one she can trust. Every moment reveals more about her past, which is dark to say the least. Likewise, the hero, David, is confronted with his own conflicts. Destined to lead his clan, he has no other option but to see to the welfare of his people. His loyalty is unwavering. However, he can't resist the alluring beauty that stumbles across his path. Although Isabelle is a woman he can't have, he fanaticizes of what might have been if circumstances were different. The obstacles standing between Isabelle and David, while enormous, only bring the star-crossed duo closer together. This is the beauty of A Highlander's Heart and what makes the book so memorable. There is no guaranteed happily-ever-after. Rather, the hero and heroine must struggle to come to terms with what they can and cannot change. Multiple plot lines add richness and depth to the plot, and all the secondary characters are well-rounded. The Highlander's Heart isn't your average romance. Instead you are plunged into the lives and experiences of those surrounding Isabelle and David. As a bonus, Ms. Forester's elegant writing style is enhanced with beautifully written dialogue and attention to detail. Enthusiasts of historical romance will undoubtedly enjoy this newest offering in the genre. Originally posted at The Long and Short of It Romance Reviews

I really enjoyed this one. The story was interesting, characters well developed. I don't read many historical romance where the lady is so comical? Not sure that is the word I'm looking for. I highly reccomend this book!

Nice story but it tends to drag. Religious undertones and no steamy scenes.

Loved this story!  A bit predictable, but it didn't detract from how much I enjoyed the book.  I stayed up well past my bed time to keep reading. Looking forward to reading her other books.

I really enjoyed this book! I love the Scots! I love the charisma between Isabella and David. I also enjoyed the concept of faith and trusting God to answer your prayers throughout the book. There were times throughout the book when it jumped to another group of characters, which threw me off at times, but it all came together towards the end. Read it!

Loved the book. I enjoy books set in ancient Scotland, and she did an excellent job describing the time and setting. Have read three of her books, and look forward to more. They are books I will read over more than once.

I liked this book but I liked the 1st book better. This one kinda' rambled around and got alittle repetitive. Loved the main characters and the humor. All in all I would reccomend this book.

What a fun story to read! Amanda Forester's The Highlander's Heart is filled with sweet romance, political intrigue, chivalrous and not so chivalrous characters, complex alliances, secrets, and possible wars. It kept me reading well into the wee hours but it was worth the lack of sleep. Lady Isabelle Tynsdale is desperate to escape her marriage to the violently abusive Earl of Tynsdale. Fleeing from him 5 years ago, she returned to her uncle for safety. But when her uncle dies, she knows not only will her husband come for her but for her beloved home as well. She travels to meet with the King to beg him to dissolve her marriage but is met en route by her husband's soldiers. Literally running for her life, Isabelle unknowingly enters Scotland where she encounters 3 ruffians. Just when she thinks she has met her end, she is rescued by a half naked barbarian. Could things get any worse? Laird David Campbell is in a fix of his own. In a dangerous and lawless time in Scotland, rumblings of discord and whispers of treason and war are in the air. The English brought nothing but ruination and poverty, and now he found himself betrothed to not one, but two women he didn't even like while struggling to pay ransom to England for the release of their Scottish King. When he realizes the lass he has rescued in the woods is not only English, but a countess, he knows ransoming her may be his only chance out of his situation. But trouble seems to follow Isabelle wherever she goes and David finds himself not just in risk of losing his life, but his heart as well. This was my second Amanda Forester book and my first introduction to this series. I am hooked! David and Isabelle are such charming characters. Their attraction to each other builds and soon the sparks between them are palpable. Their playful repartee was a delight to read. ( I loved the "kissing like Aunt Edna" references!) Isabelle was an English lady but she was tough with lots of sass. Sure, her endeavors often got her in even more trouble but she entered them with good intentions. David, though Isabelle drives him insane at times, can't deny he is drawn to her. In spite of the fact that every encounter with her brings more trouble for him, he can't seem to walk away from her. All the characters in this story are so clever, wonderfully written, and interwoven with each one's story affecting and hinging on the other. There are lots of layers and conflicts, not always physical, but often conniving and pulling strings. Readers will easily find themselves pulled into this delightful story. Though part of a series, it reads as a stand alone, but I will definitely be reading all of this charming series.
