Five boys destined to become Highland lairds are fostered together as brothers. Darach, Lachlan, Callum, Gavin and Kerr fight for their clans, for each other, and for their own true loves.

When forced to choose between duty and honor…
Darach MacKenzie vowed never again to let a woman near his heart after his betrothed betrayed him. It sparked an intense feud between his clan and the Frasers. With all-out war on the wind, Darach can’t be distracted—not even by a sweet and charming lass who desperately needs his help.

This Highland Laird will find a way to have both
When Darach rescued Caitlin MacInnes from the clutches of vile Laird Fraser, she vowed to never let men or misery rule her life again. With Darach and the MacKenzie clan, Caitlin finally feels safe. But when Laird Fraser shows up to claim what’s rightfully his, or go to war, Darach will have to use all his brawn and brains to protect Caitlin—even if it means losing his heart.

Highland Promise is the first book in Alyson McLayne new series, The Sons of Gregor MacLeod. Based on the title you will see that this is a Historical romance.
What caught my eye was the synopsis, but as I got into the story it was so much more than what was. The chemistry between the two main characters is what made the book enjoyable. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Highland Promise. The first chapter is just getting the introduction to characters. By the second is normally where I decided if the story is for me or not. I know for some that is not a good basis for judging a book. However, for me, two chapters is a good starting point. And for me to stay up late well past my bedtime to complete Highland Promise should say a lot.
With plenty of chemistry and fun dialogue, Highland Promise is one that any fan of Historical Romance should enjoy.
