To seal a fragile truce, Fiona Sinclair’s brothers trade her in marriage to their sworn enemy. Though devastated by their betrayal, she has little choice in the matter, for if she refuses, her innocent young sister must take her place. The spirited Fiona is willing to sacrifice her freedom to protect her kin, but she vows never to surrender her heart.

As the eldest son of a clan chief, Myles Campbell is accustomed to having his own way. But when the king of Scotland commands he wed a defiant Highland lass instead of a French mademoiselle, Myles must obey his royal duty. Meeting his bride for the first time on their wedding day, he is pleased to discover the lass is a beauty, but she quickly proves she’d just as soon kill him as kiss him.

When two such warrior spirits collide, sparks fly, igniting a fiery passion that strains against the bonds of family honor, clan loyalty— and the ultimate surrender—love.

This is your traditional stubborn bride forced into marriage to bring about peace. Myles Campbell was a great Hero although I wish the author would have showed him more protective. While he was honorable I like when scenes show the H showing his protective, alpha side. Fionia Sinclair is oddly familiar as it was the same name from the book I read before this one, however, the last h was shy and lame where this one is driven by anger and pure old fashion stubbornness. I do agree with another reviewer who said she carried it on further than necessary but when she finally buries the hatchet it was a sight to behold. Another reviewer said there was too many graphic sex scenes I disagree. I believe with all the action, deception going on it was well balanced. There were only like 3-4 that remember and some was skimmed over. Fiona's brothers were unbelievably cruel and that includes John. In the beginning john actually strikes her a crossed the face before the two knuckle heads send her off with their sworn enemy. There is more to it but one thing was for sure they were not concerned with what happened to her. The author had a beautiful way of pulling you in the story with memorable characters that you don't want to leave. Enjoy!
. I wish Tracy Brogan would write another medieval romance. Seriously, I couldn't put this book down. Fiona Sinclair is married to Myles Campbell by order of the King who wants the clans to make peace.. She believes that her mother was murdered by a Campbell and makes Myles miserable but she eventually realizes he's a good man. Myles and Fiona are faced with scheming relatives. He has relatives who want to overthrow him and become the laird. Meanwhile, her brother is scheming against the King. The end is a big surprise.
Highland Surender is a good intriguing read with it's suspense. One finds themselves being drawn into the story and is never sure of the outcome until the last chapter. A nice romance surrounded with history and well developed characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and it's interesting characters. More involved in story than description of surroundings. I look forward to more books by this author. Wanted the story to continue and not end. I Wanted more of Fiona and Myles and John and Gen.
This is a fascinating story of the clans in Scotland and King James working to make a peaceful and united time. The Cambells and the Sinclairs have been enemies since Lady Sinclair was murdered. King James enforces the agreement of the marriage contract for Myles Cambell and Fiona Sinclair that had been made at the birth of Fiona. The king is thinking this would bring peace, but before peace there is always fights. The romance between Fiona and Myles after their marriage begins prickly and then blossoms. Then there is the mystery of who killed Lady Sinclair. It was a great story with twists and turns a plenty. There is also some explicit love making scenes, but this does help to understand other parts of the storyline. It was a book I could not put down.
The book starts off with the heroine being forced to marry the enemy (and former ally) of her families clan. She believes that leader of that clan raped and killed her mother, so you can see why she wouldn't want to marry his son. Her brothers force her to marry him anyway, threatening to marry her little sister to the man in her place. Of course she agrees.

What follows from there is every man the heroine comes across being seen as an enemy. Her husband forces her to sleep with him, and she feels violated by the act. Throughout most of the book the heroine is whining, melancholy, and depressed about her situation. Her new husband couldn't care less. All he wants is to touch her even though it's obvious everything about him disgusts her.

I think I'd be okay with the whole Enemies to Loves thing that the book has going on, but never once does the author give us something to like about her husband. Apparently he'd wanted to marry some French chick who let him have sex with her (because they both thought they'd get married) and the when he marries the heroine all he can think about is bedding her.

Maybe it's the language the author chose but the heroine can't feel complete disgust and hatred towards her husband and the acknowledge that little piece of her attracted to him. The extremes are two far apart and it makes the book maddening because I feel complicit in her suffering.

I got as far as the husband forcing the heroine to kiss him for bath water before I had to just put the book down.
I found some bits cheesy or odd, but overall I think it was well-written and a relaxing book to indulge in. Recommended if you enjoy classic romance stories. There were a few moments that were a bit too much for me, but it was not overly sexual, and I found other relationships were well-developed, not just the couple's. Some of it was cheesy with over-the-top description, dialogue, and plot. Though this certainly made it a fun book to read.
I read this in one day and enjoyed it. I didn't care for Fiona at first and thought she was hard on Myles for too long into the story. This has a lot on intrigue, many surprises and a nice lovemaking scene or two, that is within marriage. I was disappointed in their first time making love but it did get better. If you are an avid romance reader, the author doesn't write an erotica type sex scene.

I liked that the author included an epilogue and tidy things up nicely - no cliff hangers which I hate. No other books pertaining to the Highlands by this author, so enjoy this one. I was glad this is a stand alone book. I hate it when you have to buy many books for an author to tell the story of all the family members. It's nice to have everything wrapped up into one book and easier on your pocketbook too.(ljb)
Holy moly this was a great book. Fiona is a sassy won't hold what she's thinking back kind of woman. She's strong willed, doesn't back down and is immensely proud of who she is and where she came from. This was a book I couldn't put down. I was wanting more and left wondering where the book was going to next. I could go on and on about this book. I loved it so much I would reread it.
