Alyson goes on a voyage with her husband Niall so they can spend more time getting to know each other. Their ship is attacked by pirates, the heir to the Scottish throne, Jamie Stewart, is kidnapped and Alyson is left to drown on the sinking ship. Jacob Maxwell, on a nearby ship charged with following the ship and reporting the ship's final destination, boards the ship to save Alyson and a young boy. Later, Alyson believes her husband to be dead. Jacob also believes that to be true, and hopes that it is actually true because he wants her and dreams of her. Alyson doesn't know of his feelings, but is doing some wanting of her own.
Ms. Scott knows how to weave an intricate highland tale with adventure and intrigue, wrapped up nicely in a romantic package. She'll always leave you guessing what will be happening next which makes the tale that much more engrossing and entertaining. The romance is so innocent in the beginning, growing slowly and the anticipation will keep you turning those pages with voracious speed. Yes, the detail is within the book, but written in so smoothly you'll be totally interested in each word and soak it all up without even realizing it. I always love a highland romance, and Highland Lover is no exception. I had a great time reading it and would recommend it to all!
