She is considered the Mackintosh “Wildcat”, Lady Catriona Mackintosh is a woman with a temper and a loyalty to her family runs deep. When she stumbles upon a wounded man, she finds her life is about to change in ways she doesn’t anticipate. Sir Finlagh Cameron swears to get revenge against the man and family he considers an enemy and then he finds himself attracted to his enemy’s granddaughter. Now both have to deal with their growing feelings and Fin has to figure out if revenge is worth Catriona’s life.

I absolutely loved HIGHLAND MASTER. It was enthralling, had intriguing characters and a fast paced storyline that engaged me from the beginning. It’s a high octane adventure from start to finish. Ms. Scott is a talented author who really keeps her readers guessing as Catriona and Fin fall for one another. This was by far one of her best works to date and one I found highly enjoyable. Passionate, tautly written and fast paced keep the reader glued to the edge of their seat as the reader races along with Catriona and Fin as love blossoms amid a time of tension in the highlands.

Meet Lady Catriona Mackintosh, a woman who has a fiery temper and is incredibly loyal to her family. When she finds a wounded man, she convinces him to recover at her family’s estate. What she doesn’t anticipate is falling for him nor the secrets her family and Fin have kept from her. I loved Catriona. She was feisty, a tad independent and didn’t take anything from no one. A perfect heroine in my opinion. Fin is the perfect hero for Catriona. He is alpha enough to counter her independence yet still have that vulnerability that comes out whenever he is with her. These struck sparks the moment they met and I loved how there was some give and take between them as they dealt with everything standing between them. The characters are very enjoyable, interesting and had me intrigued till the very end. There were a few secondary characters that I am hoping this author explores deeper as their back-story sounded fascinating.

HIGHLAND MASTER is by far one of Amanda Scott’s better stories to date. It was tightly written, storyline flowed nicely and with a few twists I didn’t see coming, had me on teeter hooks as I came along for the ride as Catriona and Fin fell in love. Ms. Scott is a very talented author who knows how to hook her readers from the first moment they open one of her books. I look forward to seeing what else she comes up with in the future.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
