I have just finished reading Highland Storms.
I suppose there are a few stereotypical characters - the bad man, the beautiful girl, the handsome, well muscled hero who can ignore any injury, no matter how painful.
There's the boy meets girl but neither of them are willing to admit they have fallen instantly in love... boy thinks he's lost his girl; girl thinks boy doesn't love her anyway..... bad man ends up..... (well I'm not divulging that bit!)
But to bake a quality cake you need a favourite recipe, and I can assure you, Highland Storms is fit for a Baker's Masterclass.
It has all the right ingredients required for a scrumptious read - and the icing on the cake is Christina Courteney's wonderful ability as a writer of historical romance.
Highland Storms - highly recommended!

(Note: the author is known to me: however, this is a genuine personal review of a book I enjoyed reading)

Some years ago I read Diana Gabaldon's novel "Cross Stitch", and since then I've been searching for an equally well-researched historical novel set in the Scottish Highlands. "Highland Storms" has the same ingredients. The romance between Brice Kinross and Marsaili Buchanan is expertly woven in between the drama of the history - the punitive treatment of the Scots in the years after the Battle of Culloden, every day life at an 18th century Scottish castle, and all against the backdrop of the gorgeous Highland setting. I could almost smell the heather, feel the cool waters of the loch on my skin, hear the cattle lowing in the fields. Well worth it.

Brice Kinross - even the name just oozes hero status - travels back to The Scottish Highlands from Sweden to claim his estate, Rosyth, with his father blessing. The Jacobite family fled to Sweden during turbulent times, but now Killian is concerned that all is not well on the estate and it is time for his son, Brice, to take the reins.

Brice is such a strong man, kind and caring towards all of his townsfolk. He is not happy to find his family estate in such conditions and sets about improving standards for all who live on the estate and make Roysth thrive again.

Mr Seton - Estate Manager at Rosyth. Mr Seton is not going to give Brice a warm welcome. In fact, he is going to be trouble for him and is not going to let anyone get in the way of his plans. His sole control of the estate has seen the estate go into dis-repair and money troubles.

Marsaili - the young housekeeper at Rosyth. There is more to this young woman than her beauty and position in the household. She is not interested in the many suitors who try to win her over, but there is something about Brice.

I cannot forget to mention, Liath, another hero in this story. Loyal and faithful. I don't want to give anymore away about him.

This is the second novel by Christina Courntenay that I have read so I had high expectations from Highland Storms. Christina did not disappoint. She takes us back to 1754 in the remote Scottish Highlands, just as life is beginning to settle after the Jacobite uprising of 1745.

I enjoyed seeing how Brice went about winning the trust and support of his townsfolk, and Marsaili, after years of neglect at the hands of Mr Seton.

Plenty of romance and adventure in a remote location had me willing Brice to overcome the problems he faced.

This is a sequel to Trade Winds but can be read as a stand alone adventure.

Loved it!

5 out of 5!

Format: Paperback
This is such a thrilling twist on a well-loved plot!
The main character, Marsaili, is introduced to us when a pursuer comes knocking at her door. Although the phrase, "They never give up, do they, boy?" passes in the first few lines, after several pages you realise what a sweet and lovable character she is.
Then there is the dashing Brice Kinross, who was previously seen in "Trade Winds" as a baby, (but you don't have to read that to understand this novel), an affected, but independent young man with a clear head.
Almost naturally, the two connect when he comes back for the first time since childhood, to visit his debilitating family home, where she works.
This isn't just a romance story however, it also includes some historical aspects, introducing the political intrigue of the time, involving revolts and a Jacobite pretender.
Dangers are faced and...well you have to read on.
This book is brilliant! Definitely worthy of the five stars I have given it.

Highland Storms is the sequel to Trade Winds written by Christina Courtenay and the 3rd book that she has written.

We join this book with Killian Kinross's son Brice in 1754. Desperate to get away from the betrayal of his brother Jamie, Brice jumps at the chance to get away when his Father has the need for him to head from home to their Scottish highland family estate.

Upon arrival at Rosyth is clear to see that the Estate is not being run as it should and is falling apart around them and monies missing, Colin Seaton the Estate Manager has his own agenda.

The new Laird instantly notices the very beautiful red-headed and curvy House Keeper Marsaili. Spending half her time trying to move away from the advances of the local men folk she is somewhat surprised when she very much drawn to the Laird.

An unlikely pair as he's made it quite clear he is happy to be single, they quickly become allies which is just as well with so many enemies around desperate to get Brice to leave the Estate by any means.

Can Brice get control back of the Estate? Can he gain the trust of everyone that lives and works on the Estate. Can he second guess Seaton and stop him destroying him and everyone dear to him?

I was very excited to receive this copy of Highland Storms from the publisher Choc Lit as I really enjoyed Trade Winds and I wasn't disappointed. Christina has written a wonderful sequel following on with new family members but still weaving in old names and faces as the story develops and not forgetting a very devoted dog!

There is a gorgeous mix of adventure, romance and elements of humour in places all set in the Highlands of Scotland. Beautifully written with a very quick pace to the story (well I did read it less than two days!
