Iseabail MacNaughton, the orphaned daughter of a Scottish laird, is forced to flee her home and seek assistance against her lecherous uncle, who has usurped her family’s land. When she meets Seumas, a strong and valiant mercenary, she cannot help wondering if he could be the one to stand with her against her uncle. But with a price on her head and enemies on all sides, her trust is not something she can afford to give lightly…
Seumas MacDonell is a man wounded in body and soul, driven by guilt. When he rescues Iseabail from one of his men, he cannot deny the attraction he feels for her, despite the wound that left him unable to act on it. In the hope of finding redemption for his sins, he agrees to help Iseabail…but will his feelings for her prove to be the ultimate obstacle to his salvation?
I absolutely adore my Scottish romance novels, and Ashley York’s The Bruised Thistle did not disappoint.
The author did a creative job coming up with a unique set of conflicts for the hero and heroine making this book very hard to put down. There were many twist, turns to the storyline and even some pleasant unexpected ones.
Both of the main characters have endearing qualities that will have you rooting for them to make it.
If you love suspenseful, action-filled Scottish historicals you will love The Bruised Thistle by Ashley York. It’s brilliant!
