Lady Anice vows to flee the amorous advances of King Henry I, and return to her home in the Highlands, where she hopes to find a laird to wed, when she learns her staff has vanished. Premonitions of imminent danger warn her of foul play and she is certain she is cursed when it comes to marriage.

The king orders the Highlander Laird Malcolm MacNeill, seeking an English bride, to provide the lass safe escort and learn what has become of her staff. Escorting her home safely proves a dangerous trial in and of itself and keeping his heart out of the matter, when the king wishes her wed to one of his loyal barons instead, complicates issues further. Losing his heart to the lass means Malcolm could very well lose his head.


I have read a lot of Terry Spears’ Paranormal Romance books and I love them. So when she asked if I would like to read her Historical Romance books I was very interested. HR is not my favorite genre to read but since Ms. Spears wrote them I knew I could take a chance and read them. I am so thrilled I did because these books are now some of my favorite ones that I have read this year. I mean it; they just rocked my reading world!

This book was like an epic tale full of romance and adventure. The plot was fast moving filled with twists. This is one of the few books I have read that I would love to see made into a movie.

One thing I loved about this story was the slight paranormal aspect to it. Lady Anice has the ability to have premonitions. I just think that is an interesting aspect to her character. Laird Malcolm MacNeill is also a wonderful character and the perfect man for Lady Anice. I like the way he treats her throughout the entire story.

I am so happy that I read ‘Winning the Highlander’s Heart’ and I completely look forward to reading the rest of the series. I may just become a fan of Historical Romance after all!

(This book was received as an ARC from the author/publisher in exchanged for an honest review.)
