eBook & Paperback; 432 Pages
Series: Clan Kendrick, Book #2
Genre: Historical Romance/Scottish
In bestselling author Vanessa Kelly’s irresistible Clan Kendrick series, Christmas in the Highlands means family, celebration—and for one brother, the beginning of a passionate adventure . . . Being thrown over by the man she expected to marry was humiliating enough. Now that Donella Haddon, grandniece of the Earl of Riddick, has also proven a failure as a nun, she has no choice but to return to her family’s estate. The brawny Highlander sent to escort her is brash, handsome, and the only thing standing between Donella and a gang of would-be kidnappers. But the scandal in her past can’t be so easily outrun . . . Wealthy widower Logan Kendrick was expecting to meet a plain, pious spinster—not a gorgeous, sharp-tongued lass who can hold her own in any ambush. Though she’s known as the Flower of Clan Graham, Donella is no shrinking violet. In fact, she might be the perfect woman to bring happiness back to his lonely little son’s life, just in time for Christmas. But first he must protect her from ugly gossip and a mysterious threat—and convince her that their wild, unexpected desire is heaven sent.

My Review: 

The second installment from the Clan Kendrick series, The Highlander's Christmas Bride, is the first book I have read by Vanesa Kelly. It will not be the last. I enjoyed this book.  I loved this Donella and Logan’s chemistry. I found the story to be fun, adventurous and delightful.

I am giving The Highlander’s Christmas Bride four and a half stars. I would love to read more by Vanessa Kelly, including the first book from the Clan Kendrick series.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
