Once Upon a Highland Christmas (Scandalous Scots 0.5)
by Sue-Ellen Welfonder
ONCE UPON A HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS
Warrior Grim Mackintosh understands why his friend Archibald MacNab has decreed there be no trace of Christmas in his castle. After a devastating attack destroyed everything-and everyone-in Archie's life, he prefers to stew in his own misery until the holiday passes. But Duncreag has seen enough tragedy. Grim decides to throw a grand Yuletide feast, one that the bards will sing about for years to come, one that will remind his laird how beloved he is. He can't do it alone, though. Grim needs an accomplice . . .
There's nothing Breena O'Doherty won't do for Archie, so she's thrilled to help Grim with his plan. Yet she has a Christmas wish all her own-to win Grim's heart-and this might be her only chance to make it come true. As Breena and Grim work together to bring the joy of the season to the cold, gloomy castle and to the heart of the cantankerous chieftain, an undeniable passion ignites between them. But when a shocking secret about Breena's past comes to light, threatening everything she holds dear, will it ruin Christmas in Duncreag forevermore?
Archibald MacNab has decided there will be no festivities this year at his castle. An attack took away more than things he loves and made him not want to celebrate. Breena tries her best to bring cheer back into the castle, but every time she does they disappear. She thinks Grim the sexy highlander is behind the missing things until she sees he is trying to bring the Yuletide cheer to the castle as well. Both want Archie to be happy and set out together to bring him out of his bad mood. The journey they take brings them closer together and make them see they are perfect for each other. They just have to get over their own feelings of self worth.
This is a cute story about two great people who clearly belong together. Both Breena and Grim want to make their friend happy and they clearly both want each other. It takes them going out of the castle to get a celebration planned for them to see it. I love how they both don't think they deserve the other. It makes them feel more real. It takes a lot to get them to see they are worth something. This book is full of love and a very charming read. If your looking for a good, sweet read I would say pick this one up.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
