The Angel and the Highlander is the first novel of Donna Fletcher that I’ve read.The Angel and the Highlander is the third book in the Sinclare Brothers series .The four Highland brothers – Cavan, Artair, Lachlan and Ronan the search for the missing brother Ronan seems to be the theme of this series.
This story is of the third brother Lachlan Sinclare who is to escort the runaway daughter of a local clan leader Lord Bunnock home. Lady Alyce Bunnock flees from her home as her father wants her to marry a man of his requirement.She takes shelter at Everagis Abbey, donning a nun’s habit, and naming herself after Sister Terese who is dead.When Lachlan arrives at Everagis Abbey, he discovers there are only five of the nuns left and the others – including Alyce Bunnock – have died.
Terese(Alyce) is hiding quite a lot from Lachlan and his men – that the five women aren’t nuns, that her identity as Alyce Bunnock needs to be hidden and that she has struck a bargain with the mercenaries, despite not seeing their mysterious leader.In spite of all this the two of them fall in love with each other, Lachlan has to learn to trust her and give her freedom, where as Alyce must decide between her independence and the temptation she has for him.
This is an amusing story as the hero struggles between desire and sin while the sexy “sister” struggles between desire and independence.But what i found a bit unlikely was the fear that Alyce fears Lachlan won’t like her when he discovers that she is the shrewish Alyce, considering their passion for each other.The erratic behavior of her father – first treating her like a son and teaching her the leadership skills and then again assuming that she behave like a girl should, shy and obedient. Well all in all it is a good book to read, but I wouldn’t say that I didn’t put down until I finished the book. I think that it is an ok read.
