Tracy’s review of Ravished by a Highlander (Children of the Mist #1) by Paula Quinn

Forbidden Love

Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she’s been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown’s most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal–and a bold rescue–land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.

Undeniable Desire
As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he’s not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire…and desperate for more. With Davina’s secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can’t live without.

Davina has been raised in a convent. She’s had an army protecting her, but it seems that it’s not enough to save the nuns when they are attacked. When Rob MacGregor and his friends and family come upon the convent they don’t hesitate to help out and try to save them. But the only one who truly needs protection is Davina, though she won’t say why. Rob decides that he will help her and then they’ll be on their way, but Rob and Davina end up having a connection that neither can deny. Rob decides to take Davina to his home Camlochlin, knowing that it’s truly the only place that she will ever be safe. Not only does their love grow, but it puts them in a very precarious position.

Though this is book 1 in the Children of the Mist series I’d say it’s a continuation of the MacGregor series. Rob is the firstborn son to Callum MacGregor who we first read about in Laird of the Mist. There seem to be quite a few children so hopefully this will be a nice long series.

The story was a good one and quite engaging. Both Rob and Davina are quite charismatic characters and the love story between the two was beautiful in its simplicity. Even though there were quite significant reasons to not be together they defied everyone. A lot of times that doesn’t work for me in a book but in this case I loved it. I can’t wait to read Seduced by a Highlander which comes out in September.

Rating: 4.25 out of 5
