Lucas Murray has just spent the past year recovering from wounds that he suffered when a vicious attempt was made on his life. Now he is out for revenge.
Katerina Haldane has spent the past year in hiding from those who wish to destroy her and steal her inheritance. She is devastated emotionally by the loss of the man she loves and has physically suffered horrible injuries as a victim of attempted murder.
When Lucas enters Katerina’s life once again, they have both changed. Lucas does not trust Katerina, and she is deeply hurt by his mistrust. Together, along with some brave friends, they battle against Katerina’s evil sister, Agnes, and her despicable minions who wish to retain permanent control of the keep. In the meantime, Katerina and Lucas are drawn to each other, but if Lucas does not do what he can to make amends with Katerina, he may lose the woman he loves forever.
Highland Savage is a classic Scottish Highland romance novel. It tells the story of the requisite Highland hunk and damsel in distress. Fortunately, it soars above the usual stories contained in this genre. The heroine is not a damsel in distress, but a warrior in her own right. She also does not just fall into her hero’s arms, but is wary of his actions and does not allow her attraction to cloud her better judgment. The hero is a sympathetic character and quite romantic, despite his physical description. Hannah Howell has written another fascinating novel that gives the reader the gift of escape to sensual romance, true love, and swash-buckling excitement.
