5 Word Review: Family, love, betrayal, secrets, trust. 

When I picked this up, all I knew that I was in the mood for a highland romance. The Highlander's Secret Son ticked all of the boxes, and left me thoroughly satisfied.

I love a secret baby trope - and this one is revealed in such a dramatic way! Right from the start we can what Fiona and Brandon's personalities are, and I loved Fiona's sass.

Fi and Brandon have history - and it's messy. I loved to see them work through it and overcome the misunderstandings of their past. There had been a huge betrayal, and each resented the other, but the spark between them as still there and it was great to see it rekindled. I loved the slow rebuilding of trust and the acknowledgment that the love had never really left.

I enjoyed how the narrative switches between Fiona and Brandon - we get to see both sides of the story and the reasons behind the misunderstandings. We got to see the deeper side of the politicking and clan loyalties.

The setting is wonderful. It is sweeping and epic and grand, and yet it still felt intimate at times. The changeable weather brought the setting further to life.

The Highlander's Secret Son is a fantastic highland historical romance, where the setting came to life and the characters worked their way into my heart. It is definitely one I will read again.
