5.0 out of 5 stars A Stolen Birthright, A Missing Lover, 1 Sep 2013
This review is from: A Thistle in the Mist (Kindle Edition)
Meara's life is turned upside down when her wicked stepmother (Dierdre) uses deceit and worse to worm her way into the MacDonald clan. Dierdre and her brother's plot spreads like a poison through Meara's world in the Scottish Highlands. Meanwhile, the love of Meara's life leaves to go to war with Napoleon.

The story delivers dramatic and tense moments from the perspective of the feisty and loyal Meara in the first person. Dialogue and action balance well as the story develops, and Denby handles erotic sequences expertly. I found myself turning pages to find out what would happen next, and I'm happy to report that this book lends itself well to a sequel.

For your information, Denby composes her characters' dialogue in the Scottish dialect, and that forced me to slow my reading in order to "hear" the characters, but the narrator uses standard English.

Megan Denby has successfully crafted a highly despicable set of antagonists in Deirdre and her twisted brother Sloan, but our protagonist (Meara) is a worthy opponent.
