MY BOOK REVIEW

My Thoughts 
Ravished By A Highlander is the first installment in the Children of the Mist series written by Paula Quinn. Paula Quinn has such a talent for writing Scottish Highland Historical Romances and she definitely came out on top with Ravished by a Highlander. I truly loved this story and everything about it. Paula Quinn is such a story teller, and throughout this book, it was like falling in love all over again. The characters were telling and deeply driven. The plot was intense and full of adventure and dilemma, this story will captivate every heart. Definitely a Five blossom in my book!!!

My Favorite Quote:
  When he deepened the kiss, she had the feeling of falling deep into a chasm where only he existed, ready and waiting to catch her.
