The Highland Ruby by Brenda B Taylor
Marry for love or marry for family? Flora is torn between the two. Gavin is back from the New World, but is told he has to leave again. How can he win back Flora’s love if he’s gone all the time? Their faith in God and each other is tested as they are separated and must overcome difficult circumstances. When Gavin is forced to leave again, how can he prove to his brother, and to Flora, that he is home to stay?
I could feel Flora’s despair at Gavin’s leaving. Would he return? From a fight with a wildcat to evading a warrant for his arrest, Gavin’s plight made for an action filled story. Brenda Taylor subtly adds in historical facts and the Scottish era. As events kept turning against Gavin coming home, I couldn’t put the book down. If you enjoy historical romance, you’ll love this 16th century Scottish romance. This is Gavin’s story, from A Highland Pearl. These are stand-alone stories in the Highland Treasures series. At the end of the story is a glossary of Gaelic and other terms used in the story.
I am looking forward to the next story in the series.
