Entangled Scandalous


The Scottish Highlands, 1815

Lady Sybil Lacey is every inch an English woman. She's horrified her best friend is wedding a barbarian Scot.  For aren't Scots naught but brutish, whiskey-swilling lechers? So to find herself secretly attracted to the tall and devastatingly handsome Scottish laird of Bedlay Castle is quite disconcerting...

Liam MacBride is convinced that English ladies are silly sassenachs who think of nothing but social events and clothes. So why is he intensely drawn to Lady Sybil? All they do is quarrel...until loathing turns into undeniable lust.

A tempestuous, fiery romance between an English lady and a Scottish laird cannot end well.

My Thoughts:
I have to say that I enjoyed The Highlander's Choice. Truly a wonderful story. I don't know where to beginning with my thoughts on this story. So, we have Lady Sybil and she has some personal prejudice against the Scots. She totally believe's that they are overbearing barbarians and her friend doesn't know what she's getting herself into. However, she comes to realization that they are just like her. They we have Liam who also has person prejudices against the English and that their woman are nothing but silly air headed women. Like Sybil he learns he's beliefs are incorrect. Okay, they make it over one hurdle and he wants to marry Sybil. Now this is where the story gets interesting. Oh boy, I would rather take my chances with wolves or even the Loch Ness monster than deal with Liam's mother. 

Prejudice starts at home. I personally think Sybil was just uneducated on other cultures, because her family is unique when it comes to differences. However, Liam's family has years of prejudice and his mother didn't help the situation. Personally, I wanted to strangled the woman. Oh my goodness, there are few characters I want to cause bodily harm and she's one of them. She was a bitch. She makes Cinderella's stepmother look like a saint. Awful person and she made no attempts to be nice. I have to give Sybil props because I would have said screw this I'm out of here. Sybil was trooper when it Liam's mother's torture. Poor Liam was walking a fine line he just wanted to keep the peace. 

Anyway, I enjoyed The Highlander's Choice, because it was good story that showed two characters overcoming prejudice and finding what matter most, love. Even though love is the answer to overcome prejudice, it's not always easy. I did enjoy Sybil and Liam's relationship because it didn't come easy, and they had to work through their issues before they found their happy-ever-after.
