 My Review 

☆I was given a review copy by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!☆

Vow of the Highlander fell into the same thoughts I had with book one, Mark of the Highlander. It was enjoyable and easy to read and had a little bit of everything. From mystery, action, magic, romance and time travel to the Scottish highlands, this book has it all!

Sky Purington does a wondrous job captivating readers as she cleverly relays the time plot and plight of the characters in both an appealing and engaging manner.  I was impressed!

Those of you who don’t remember "Bralie," be sure to pick of Mark of the Highlander because they’re in there and will peak your interest. I know I was super curious when I picked up this read!

A very likable read that those who love historical romances with a splash of enchantment will enjoy!  Great follow up for The MacLomain Series, Ms. Purington!

Only five steps into the courtyard and already one clansman was circling her, a flirtatious grin on his handsome face. Somehow it was all infectious and as determined as she was to stay by McKayla’s side, she soon found herself in the arms of first one then another Scotsman. Some were her height, many taller, but none as tall as the man who she eventually ended up dancing with.
“I hear I had you worried.”
It took everything she had to look into Bradon’s deep, green eyes. She hated how aware of him she’d become. How her heart seemed to clench a little too tightly. “Don’t overthink it.”
“Ah, so I did have you worried. ‘Tis good,” he said softly. “Every lad should have a wee bonnie lass or two to welcome him home after a good battle.”
She arched a brow and found it easier and easier by the moment to look at him. “Or two?”
“Or three even,” he replied easily, an irritating grin on his face.
“What happened when you left us?” she asked, determined to steer the conversation away from him thinking her an easy target.
“They followed,” he said as if she should have that figured out. “And I evaded.” He shrugged. “Then I killed a few.”
“Why are you not covered in blood then?”
“Because I’m not brutal.” His eyes dropped to her lips before returning to her eyes. “‘Tis not a difficult thing to find water and bathe, lass.” 
He did seem rather fresh…in more ways than one. “So will the MacLeod’s be showing up at the MacLomain’s doorstep once more?”
His hand slid lower down her back and he pulled her closer. “Nay, lassie. ‘Tis time to relax.”
She pushed him back a fraction and frowned. “I can relax just fine without being up against you.”
“Can you then?” But he didn’t let her go too far. His hand cupped the side of her neck. “The muscles here.” His thumb ran around the back, giving her shivers. “As well as the muscles here.” He pressed slightly. “They are like stone.”
Her eyes dropped to his strong neck then the wide chest covered by his tunic. Being close to this man was a very bad idea. But for the life of her she couldn’t pull away.
