Highland Shift by Laura Harner - Post #1 of my RNC Author Friends Books

Hello there - This is a follow-up to my time at the Romance Novel Convention. I picked up a few books while I was there and I decided I am going to post each of them as a Sunday Feature book of the week, along with a blog post about them. This is the first book I read from fellow author Laura Harner - a wonderful lady I met at the Romance Novel Convention in August, 2013 that took place in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This Week's Book is ....

  Highland Shift (Highland Destiny #1)

By Laura Harner

***I received this print book free from the author***

Elena MacFarland wonders what everyone else knows about her new farm that she doesn't, and whether she'll live long enough to find out. Betrayed by her fiancé and the powerful Worthington family, Elena fights back and negotiates a comfortable settlement with one small caveat: she must live in Scotland for two years. One kidnapping and two attempts on her life later, the darkly arrogant Scot, Faolan MacGailtry declares himself her new protector and moves into her farmhouse. Major problem? He was present at all three incidents. Elena decides to follow the adage to keep her friends close and enemies closer--but which is he? One by one, Elena uncovers Faolan's darkest secrets: his Druid heritage, his connection to her past, and finally, the deadly curse that is powerful enough to destroy them both.

A different kind of Druid Romance

This book had an interesting story line with the druids and the fae. I haven't read a good druid book in a long time so that was a refreshing change from my usual reading pleasure. I liked how she spun the love story; you could really feel the main characters attraction and heat. The chemistry was there and it was maintained throughout the entire novel. I do feel like parts of it were drawn out more than necessary. Some of the 'drama' that transpired was a tad repetitive. But I did want to know what happened to the couple as I was invested in their characters. Overall this was a good book - just a bit too long for me. Ms. Harner's writing style however was very easy to follow. It flowed very well and I really enjoyed the dialect she brought to life with her characters.
