Following the disastrous defeat of the clans at Culloden, Scottish Chief’s son Diarmad Ramsay makes his dying father a promise. Diarmad will play the part of Bonny Prince Charlie in an effort to help the true Prince escape the Highlands. With only the fiery Mara MacIvor for guide and with danger on his heels, he must risk all for a Cause in which he no longer believes.
Mara MacIvor considers Ramsay a poor substitute for her beloved Prince. Ramsay may be one of the bonniest men she’s ever met and a braw sight with a sword in his hand, but his disillusionment makes a wide gulf between them. Pursued through the Highlands by Sassenachs and ruthless Highland renegades bent on claiming the price on Prince Charlie’s head, their physical attraction soon becomes a conflagration. But will they ever be bound by more than Diarmad’s vow of honor?
My Review: Honor Bound: A Highland Adventure by Laura Strickland is set in Scotland 1419. Diarmad Ramsay sworn to do one last mission for his dying father. That of acting like a decoy, for Prince Charles Edwards. A mission that I thought was foolish, I am happy that Diarmad thought the same way. But a promise was a promise so with the help of Mara MacIvor they set off to help Prince Charles to escape.
The story was slow in some places, but steady as you are sweep into the life of Diarmad and Mara glowing attraction for each other.
What I like about Honor Bound: A Highland Adventure was Mara was ever bite the lady, but a fierce protector for Diarmad. who really didn’t need it, but I guess it would have looked funny for Prince Charles Edward running around Scotland without protection.
