Black Lion Tours: "Sound of the Heart" by Genevieve Graham Book Review

Well, I have my review now, so read it below.  And to read the awesome guest post and enter the giveaway, click here.

Sound of the Heart (The MacDonnells, #2)Sound of the Heart by Genevieve Graham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was the first "Highlanders" book I have ever read.  I have read the buzz about these great romances that people read from the Highlanders, and I have to admit that I somewhat dismissed this as a fad.  What could be so great about reading a book about the Scottish people?

Was I ever wrong!  This book was unbelievable!  I am so glad I took a gamble on it.  I love history, and I got to read about a part of history I knew virtually nothing about.  Not only that, but the romance was hot and steamy, and my emotions were on edge throughout the majority of the book.  Oh, and the author threw in a twist that I NEVER saw coming.  No spoilers on that--you have to read it yourself!  I found myself smiling for quite some time when I got to that twist because the author did not drop a single hint (that I caught, at least) concerning this twist.

I honestly have very little negative things to say about this.  There is some profanity, but I was not terribly perturbed by it.  The sex scenes were discreet and romantic.  I did not feel that I was invading on the characters' privacy.  Yes, the morals concerned may not have been what I would want, but I honestly was not bothered.

This book is well-written, and the romance is not sappy in the least.  The book is full of action, and it is very readable.  If you like romance and historical fiction, this book is for you!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
