Highland Barbarian

The Murray Family continues with Highland Barbarian.

Sir Artan Murray was on a mission to get Angus’s niece, marry her and become the heir. It was going to be simple until he found out that she was getting married to another. Artan will charm his way in and soon will take matters in his hands and kidnap his soon to be bride. Things will not get any easier after that especially as there will be those who will want to take Cecily back.

Cecily Donaldson knew it was her duty to marry this man her guardians had picked for her. Then she  meets Artan and her heart betrays her. She will find herself falling for him until he kidnaps her. Cecily will fight for her freedom especially when she finds out what Artan gets when he marries her.

I definitely liked this story from Hannah Howell. Artan’s character was a warrior throughout but one that had compassion. He saw what needed to be done and did it. Of course kidnapping his potential wife was not the best way to do it.

Cecily was the perfect woman to many as she always had a smile on her face and said little to upset her clan. I loved that she became more when she was with Artan. She became stronger and more sure of herself yet there was still a part of her that had to please those around her.

The Murray clan is definitely one to read so far and I have to wonder who will be next in the ninth book in Howell’s series?
