Heart in the Highlands by Heidi Kimball is definitely going to be one of my top reads of 2021! It is amazing. I seriously loved everything about it. This story is much more than a romance. It’s a story of forgiveness, redemption, and hope and you will not want to put it down.
I loved Katie from page one! My heart broke for her and what she had to go through. There was a scene so beautifully written that I literally felt like I could feel her pain. I loved her strength, her honesty, and her kindness. Callum is charming, witty, flirtatious, and I was pulling for him the entire time! Even though he made his mistakes, you can’t help but feel for him and root for his redemption. Katie and Callum kept me glued to the pages! This is a story that I didn’t want to end.
The secondary characters are perfectly drawn and add so much to this story, especially Charlotte. I would’ve loved more scenes with her and the Duke of Edinbane. Finally, I loved the setting of Scotland!
This book is not to be missed! I will definitely be picking up all of Heidi Kimball’s backlist!
*I received a complimentary copy and I purchased this book. It’s a clean read.
An arranged marriage was never what Callum Darrington, future Duke of Edinbane, imagined for himself. But with the well-being of his uncle’s family hanging in the balance, Callum strikes a bargain with his father and reluctantly agrees to tie himself to a stranger. The reality of the lovely Lady Katherine is more than he could have hoped for, and their wedding heralds a bright new future for the couple—until Callum discovers his father deliberately deceived him. Callum lashes out, setting in motion heartbreak not even he could have foreseen.
Four years later, Callum is ready to piece together the marriage he so carelessly destroyed. But their years apart have hardened Kate: she is not the naive and trusting young woman she once was, and she has no intention of allowing Callum a foothold in her life or her heart. Despite her coldness, Callum works to regain her trust and rebuild their marriage, not realizing Kate harbors a secret that could change everything—and this time, there is much more at stake than just her heart.
