Claiming the Highlander’s Heart by Lily Maxton is the fourth book in The Townsends series. This book can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend reading the others in the series as they are enjoyable.
Georgina Townsend is the impulsive sometimes reckless sibling. Returning home from Glasgow after getting life altering medical news, she discovers her home has been robbed and her prized music box has been stolen. She decides to follow the thieves and get it back.
Malcom Stewart is the leader of a misfit band of robbers. Having lost his family while serving in the army, he is not afraid of the possible consequences. He is intrigued by the woman who joins their group and can’t resist his attraction.
How will he feel when he discovers the woman he is falling in love with is a member of the aristocracy. A group he holds responsible for the deaths of his family?
Ms Maxton crafts characters not typically found in historical romance. I preferred other books in the series, but this is still a fun read. I would have liked if the author had expanded on Georgina’s medical issue which added a twist that is not found in romance. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something a little different and is tired of the usual historical romance.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. For more reviews please visit my blog:
