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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love is in the air for this burly Highlander and ex-nun! Logan Kendrick has been sent to escort his potential business associates grandniece home from a convent. He is expecting an easy detour from his travels and then back to business as usual… He never envisioned the young beautiful and sharp-witted lass he was to escort would create so much chaos! Not only does he have to protect her from would-be kidnappers, he has to guard his heart from her! Donella Haddon has failed at being a nun. Add that to her list on non-accomplishments. Will she ever find a place that she belongs? Donella must now race against kidnappers and scandal, all the while trying to find her purpose. Can her Highlander hero also save her from herself? This was an action packed adventure through the highlands and the Christmas social season in Glasgow. It was a true delight watching these characters discover that what they had planned for their future is not what they need. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Zebra, Kensington Books through NetGalley.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from engaging characters I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this boo. All thoughts and opinions are my own. The Highlanders Christmas Bride, by Vanessa Kelly, is available at booksellers on 10-29-19. This story is book 2 in Ms Kelly's Clan Kendrick series. We pick up after book 1 ends so it's possible to read as a standalone. The characters from book 1 make an appearance and it's nice to know they're doing ok. I actually liked this couple more so it was a treat to read. Ms Kelly loves a handsome highlander character and it shows in the care she takes with his story. Mr. Logan Kendrick is member of THAT Kendrick family. Rogues, troublemakers, and big brawny handsome devils. After a horrid accident Logan was banished and wound up in Canada. He stayed for a decade, married and had a son. His boy is of mixed heritage so there's xenophobia to deal with, but it's handled splendidly. Logan is a bit complicated, PTSD of a sort, and like any tough Scot, he doesn't talk a lot. Makes it hard to know what he's feeling so we're told what's running through his mind. Good thing too, burly Scotsman don't get touchy-feely outside the bedroom. Miss Donella Haddon is a rip-roaring hoot of a heroine. I love this lass. Her family thinks she's quiet, biddable, all the things a young lady should be. Well they don't know anything, she's just been ejected from a convent! She's had 3 years and cannot make herself into a good nun. She wears her sassy pants everyday. Upon first look Logan sees the most beautiful woman ever. Then she speaks and the fun begins. They snipe at each other and try to pry information out of each other for the longest time, almost till the end. I loved it. I can get invested in a female character that can handle herself. If you haven't read book 1, The Highlander Who Protected Me, I suggest that you give it a try too. The characters are engaging. Ok Ms Kelly, what's next? Happy reading. #Netgalley #VanessaKelly #TheHighlander'sChristmasBride #ClanKendrek #KensingtonPress #Zebra #Romance
