TRUE HIGHLAND SPIRIT may be purchased here.
TRUE HIGHLAND SPIRIT
Morrigan McNabb isn't the usual Scots lass, because she dresses like a man and fights alongside her brothers for her clan. Morrigan's clan is very poor and in danger of starving and to make matters worse Scotland is at war with England. Sir Jaques Dragonet is one of the French knights, who arrived with the Duke of Argitaine to aid some Scottish in attacking the English. Because the Duke paid for their help, Morrigan's clan is among the other Scots clans. Morrigan, who knew Jaques as a minstrel, previously, is very attracted to him, and the feeling is mutual. Unfortunately, Jaques has secrets, that will get in the way to their path to true love.
Ms. Forester has become a must buy author for me and her books are on my keeper shelf. Ms. Forester seamlessly weaves historical events into a great love story filled with multi-faceted characters, action and adventure. Jaques is a great hero, who is honorable and fervently religious. It is great seeing him fall for the irreverent, head-strong, Morrigan. Morrigan is one of my favorite heroine's of all time. Any heroine, who at twelve, has the gumption to run the fat, elderly man, she is betrothed to, off at sword point, has my vote.
All in all, TRUE HIGHLAND SPIRIT is a wonderful read, which I highly recommend.
NOTE: I received this book in return for an impartial review.
