"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
So, I’ll admit it, the cover was the first thing that caught my eye. Then I noticed that this was a Highland Guard novel by Monica McCarty. While I’ll admit this series has been hit and miss for me, I’m intrigued by the premise of this book.
How could you resist this book? He’s the son of the castle blacksmith and she’s the daughter of a powerful lord, he knows that they could never be together but now she’s coming to him for help.
Yep. Sign me up for this one because it looks like it’s going to be a fantastic historical Highlander romance.
Title: The Rock (Book #11 of Highland Guard)
Author: Monica McCarty
Release Date: 12/29/2015
The first time he caught sight of Elizabeth Douglas, Thomas MacGowan thought she was a princess. To the son of the castle blacksmith, the daughter of the powerful Lord of Douglas might as well be. When it becomes clear that his childhood companion will never see him as a man she could love, Thom joins Edward Bruce’s army as a man-at-arms to try to change his lot. If he’s harbored a secret hope that he could close the gap between them, he faces the cold, hard truth when Elizabeth comes to him for help. She might need the boy who used to climb cliffs to rescue her brother from the hands of the English, but she would never see the son of a smith as a man worthy of her hand.
