to me and I am voluntarily reviewing Highland Defender is the second book in the Renegade Scots series by Julie Johnstone I have read the first book in the series and loved it, but you don t need to read that one first to understand all that is going on in this book It can easily be read as a standalone.It s been a long time since I have read a book that I couldn t put down and needed to read in one sitting This one was one of those I read it into the wee hours because I just had to know how it would all end.Lillianna de Burgh Highland Defender is the second book in the Renegade Scots series by Julie Johnstone I have read the first book in the series and loved it, but you don t need to read that one first to understand all that is going on in this book It can easily be read as a standalone.It s been a long time since I have read a book that I couldn t put down and needed to read in one sitting This one was one of those I read it into the wee hours because I just had to know how it would all end.Lillianna de Burgh comes from a family of seers, the women only A magical brooch, when worn by them, can give them the power to see into the future But they can also have the power naturally when they find true love Lillianna has seen how her mother was abused for her sight and has experienced herself how men want to use her too The brooch is missing, and Lillianna refuses to ever fall in love but men haven t given up trying to woo her with the hopes of gaining knowledge from her powers When her Uncle thinks he might have found the brooch he wants Lillianna captured and brought to him She knows she has to flee.Highland warrior Angus MacLorh has been tasked with both warning Robert Bruce s men that King Edward s men are on their way to find and kill them and to escort Lillianna to safety with her Scottish relatives Angus isn t pleased at all about the latter part of his mission, but he must obey orders and so their travels begin.During that time they discover that they at least like each other Lillianna usually never trusts men, and can t be sure she can trust Angus, but she can see past the gruff exterior that he presents to the world He has hardened himself to love after his love for a woman brought his family down He focuses purely on being a warrior But his softer side emerges during their journey and although he will never admit it Angus starts to fall for Lillianna He won t give in to his emotions, and she won t ever let herself fall in love Surely what she feels for Angus is just because he is her protector for the time being Apart from the fabulous budding romance between them and them constantly fighting it, the story was also captivating with the machinations of the various sides involved in wanting the Scottish throne Lillianna is in demand because thewicked people, including her Uncle, want to possess her and have an insight into if they are going to win battles There are some tear jerking moments and there are some characters that I just wanted to jump into the book and punch Was there a happy ending, of course, there was, but how it came about is definitely worth reading to find out You won t be disappointed But if you don t come away from this book wishing for your own handsome warrior protector I will be very surprised Angus was just amazing, Lillian brought out the best in him and visa versa and it was lovely to read.I absolutely 100% recommend this book because it absolutely has it all Highland DefenderI didn t think Julie could top her Highlander Vows series and then she wrote Outlaw King, well I thought nothing could beat that then she does it again with Highlander Defender I just love the tough, fierce, big hearted men and the incredibly strong women she writes about It also incorporates elements of
