RAVISHED BY A HIGHLANDER is book one in Paula Quinn’s new Children of the Mist Series. Davina Montgomery is a woman in dire straights. In the space of one day her entire world has been destroyed around her. But through the mists of chaos and destruction - love appears.
The only life Davina has ever known has been inside the walls of St. Christopher’s Abbey. But not for the reasons you might think…Davina is there to protect her from her enemies, for if they knew where she were they would have long since have ended her life. Davina carries a very dangerous secret…her very identity is the Crown’s most guarded secret. And when the Abbey is attacked and all the inhabitants mercilessly slaughtered it was only by a miracle that Davina survived, and this particular miracle came in the form of one sexy highland warrior!
Robert MacGregor was on his way to England to attend the Coronation ceremonies of the newly crowned King James when he happens upon St. Christopher’s Abbey. However it is not the peaceful sight of serenity and prayer that it should be, but a battlefield that meets his eyes. When one of the soldiers fighting in the battle begs Rob’s help to save the Lady Montgomery from a fiery death inside the Abbey - Rob is honor bound to see that the Lady escapes unscathed. He never expected that the beautiful innocent lass that he pulls from the ashes would end up firing his blood as hot as the flames that he pulled her from.
Davina is heartbroken at the loss of all of the nuns and soldiers who guarded her, for they were the only true family she has ever known. Rob is deeply moved by her trials, but he is drawn to her also in a way that he has never been drawn to another woman ever before. The longer the two are in each other’s company the closer they become and the more passion begins to grow between them. However the enemies that were searching for Davina have not given up and they will not stop at nothing until she is dead. Can Rob save her from the dark forces that are bound to see Davina and her closely guarded secret to the grave? Is there a chance for their budding love to be realized or will the secrets that Davina harbors keep them forever apart? Believe me you will want to read this one to find out the answers!
I really loved this story and it has it all - intrigue, desire, love, duty, and faith, plus much more all rolled into one. Paula Quinn has penned a story rich in drama and the things that make us human beings, with our passions, triumphs, faults, secrets, and our ties to those people and things we hold dear in this life. And for those of you who are fans of Ms. Quinn’s novels will see some familiar faces show up as well from her earlier novels such as Laird of the Mist and A Highlander Never Surrenders! :) I fell in love right along with Rob and Davina and I loved watching how their story and love unfolded. Those of you that know me know that I love a good Scottish story and this is truly one of those with just a little of the Tudors vibe thrown in there for good measure! This is truly a great read and I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2 in the series! Get your copy today and see what I mean you will be glad you did! :)
