Summary from Publisher:

It has been prophesied that four men, raised as brothers, will bring Scotland back to glory. The third one will first endure a lesson in humility—and passion.

Charlotte is as brave as any Highland warrior, but she can't rescue her father alone. Her sweet face could convince any man to come to her aid, but fate has a funny way of complicating things. For when she is lucky enough to land at the feet of the mighty Bryce MacAlpin, Charlotte is in disguise . . . as Charles.

Bryce can afford no distractions on his vital quest to restore Scotland's true king to the throne. It is madness to instead give his help to this desperate urchin— especially after Charlotte's secret comes to light! Now, caught between a growing passion and his dedication to the king, will Bryce turn away from love in order to fulfill his quest? Or will he discover that promising your heart is the bravest mission of all?

My Review:

This book was the cause of great frustration for me. I was in the middle of reading this book on my Nook and my copy expired. I have to admit to a rash of frustrated tears. But thankfully, I was lucky enough to be sent a copy in my Avon Addicts package. I may or may not have done a small dance of joy.

Charlotte has to be one of my favorite heroines ever. In the beginning, I couldn't decide whether to label her "awesome" or a Mary Sue (if you need a definition). I went with truly awesome because this woman was as much of a warrior as Bryce. I also liked her--which never happens when I find a Mary Sue. Bryce was a great hero and watching him attempt to control Charlotte was a great joy. He did take a bit of a backseat to the amazing that was Charlotte but I liked him nonetheless.

I loved so much about this book. Both Charlotte and Bryce were likable and had great chemistry. I also loved that both of them could have been the "warrior" in the title. Charlotte was not your typical simpering, distressed heroine and Bryce was not the typical he-man protector type. They both broke the mold in their own way. The only aspect of the book that really rankled was the whole girl dressed as boy thing. It always flummoxes me and it always leaves me rolling my eyes in disbelief but Donna Fletcher made it believable.


  1. Sounds like a great heroine!

    1. She was! I kept waiting for her to do something obnoxious but she never did :)
