Lady Catriona “Wildcat” Mackintosh is not afraid of anything, except her dad, grandfather, and her brothers’ tempers. She is a young woman who walks her own road and expects no one to get in her way. If they do, she will unleash her claws and show them why they call her “wildcat”. One day she is walking with her dog and discovers a wounded, incredibly handsome stranger. Once she laid her eyes upon him, her soul began to long for his attention and her body began to yearn for his uninhibited touch.
Sir Finlagh Cameron is the son of the dead Cameron war leader that made him swear an oath to destroy the Mackintosh chieftain. Here is the rub, he wakes up and is shown great hospitality from the clan he swore to eliminate. Catriona’s breathtaking beauty and high-spirited personality makes him regret the oath. Fin finds himself wanting to possess her and claim her as his own. Can he hold true to the loyalties of his clan and still capture the woman of his heart?
Highland Master is pretty good. The characters are interesting and the plot is obviously steeped in historical events making it a very pliable read. However, the constant talk of political loyalties and background of historical events takes away from the story at hand. Many times in the story it gets too wordy about what was going on with the chieftains and those trying to gain the throne. It was hard to get through those parts. For the most part, a good read.
