"To Dream of a Highlander" (Samantha Holt) Blog Tour & Giveaway!

Sent on a rescue mission, Finn Mac Chaluim is prepared to do his duty, hand over the lass and return home.

But fate has other ideas.

In the midst of a Norse invasion, Catriona barely escapes with her life. Masquerading as her sister, she finds herself in the hands of Finn who intends to hand her over to her sister’s betrothed, Laird Gillean. In the interests of bringing peace to her home, Catriona is determined to continue the ruse—even if it means going along with the marriage and denying her growing attraction to a man who keeps his hurts hidden behind a quick grin.

If the green faery, Tèile, has anything to do with it, Catriona and Finn will come together—but only at the right time. Thanks to her last attempt at matchmaking, many paths were changed and now it’s up to her to put it right. Can she help Finn— who learned the hard way that sharing your life with someone only leads to heartache—get past his doubts? And will the battle-scarred Catriona even accept him into her heart? When Laird Gillean’s attentions toward Catriona become dangerous, both Finn and Tèile will find they have an uphill battle on their hands.

Cat's Review
"TO DREAM OF A HIGHLANDER" by Samantha Holt.  Ms. Holt has done it again!  "To Dream of a Highlander" is an action-packed, romance-filled story that keeps you turning page after page.  Our Hero, Finn is wonderful - I fell in love with him right away.  He still struggles with the loss of his wife and child but can't deny his attraction and chemistry to Catriona.  Our heroine, Catriona,  is both strong yet vulnerable yet very brave.  She has seen much bloodshed during her life and is determined to help the people of Bute, doing whatever it takes. An additional bright spot of this story is Tiele, a green faeri. Tiele is a delight and so enjoyable and offers some amusement while she works at dealing with the humans.  Highlander fans and historical fiction fans and any romance fans - this is a MUST read!   ✔✔✔✔✔
