Review of To Wed a Wicked Highlander

TO WED A WICKED HIGHLANDER may be purchased here.

Victoria Roberts

Sybella MacKenzie, daughter to the MacKenzie Laird, is something of a tomboy, and she wants to prove herself as worthy as her brother to her clan.  When her father makes arrangements for Sybella to marry their enemy, Alexander MacDonell, Laird of the MacDonell clan, Sybella agrees to the marriage but isn't happy about it.  Sybella's father wants her to gain Alexander's trust and search for a treasure, that the MacDonells stole from her clan, but Sybella finds herself growing closer to her husband.

TO WED A WICKED HIGHLANDER is an entertaining historical romance with complex characters and some very amusing scenes.  Sybella is torn between her duty to her father and her clan and her love for her husband.  Sybella has a tough decision to make, and either way she turns may be considered a betrayal to those she loves.  Sybella is full of spunk and determination, and I quite like her as a heroine.  Alexander is a great hero, who dotes on his ailing aunt and clan.  Alexander doesn't try to stifle Sybella's independent nature, in fact, he is attracted to that quality in her.  The secondary characters are interesting and realistic.  I, especially, like Alexander's aunt.

All in all, TO WED A WICKED HIGHLANDER is an enjoyable read, which I highly recommend.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an impartial review.
