    I DO Love Highlanders!

    I really loved the story and how much Ainsley grew as a person due to everything that happened to her. Royal was hard NOT to love! The story was awesome and I really enjoyed Ainsley's spirit and attitude. Have to admit that Angus is still my favorite! The only reason it's not a 5 star is because even though we have a HEA, the ending made me sad. I would have preferred Cringlewood have a different ending, but I'm hoping we'll get more information in the next book. (I was a little sad there wasn't information on the next book and who gets the next story!) Thank you NetGalley for the ARC!

    I love the crazy Kendrick clan.

    I love the crazy Kendrick clan. Royal is so great the way he protects his family and how he wants to protect Ainsley, even if it means he won't be with her. They argue all the time, but he loves her so much and wishes that she would love him too. Ainsley has problems and lots of secrets. Royal will help her and keep her secrets no matter the cost to himself. Ainsley has given up so much and so has Royal. Will they be able to figure out a way for them to be together, keep Ainsley's secrets and keep her safe? The whole family comes together to help them. Will it be enough?

    Truly, a great story

    Lady Ainsley Matthews meets Royal Kendrick at a ball. She is beautiful and has many admirers. Royal, the brother to Lord Arnprior was a soldier at Waterloo. He has the scars and nightmares that go with it. When they meet, it is instant attraction and fireworks as they both are very opinionated. The one thing that stands between them is Lord Cringlewood. He is obsessed and wants to marry her. Royal returns to his family's estate in the Highlands, but never forgets Ainsley. She is at her great aunt's home in Scotland. When Royal visits, he finds that she is pregnant and afraid. There is no one she trusts more and asks him to take her baby because she knows he will keep it safe. Royal is a real hero to all who know him.. He takes the baby knowing that he will never see her again. The Kendrick's take care of their own and the baby is safe. When Ainsley returns to Scotland, will be be able to keep her and the baby safe? Lord Cringelwood is still obsessed and dangerous. I really liked the story. I went back and re-read.several parts because they were very well written and swoon worthy. There are parts of this book dealing with abuse. I received this book from Net Galley and Kensington Books for a honest review and no compensation otherwise.The opinions expressed are my own.

    Very Satisfying HEA

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The Highlander Who Protected Me is the first book in Vanessa Kelly’s new series Clan Kendrick. I do think that you should read Improper Princesses book 3 The Highlander’s Princess Bride first though because you will meet many of the characters in this book and you will enjoy this one more as a result. Royal Kendrick is a second son with few prospects, a grievous war injury and his heart belongs to Lady Ainsley Mathews beautiful and spoiled way above his reach. The sparks that fly between these two are incendiary. The dialogue between them is everything and there is a line that I’m going to paraphrase badly ... but it resonates with me ... because they had no expectations of each other they were able to be their true selves with each other. Both of these characters grow because of their relationship with each other and so the HEA is very satisfying. Another thing that struck me was that although the author was quite realistic about how few options women had at the time, Ainsley was a strong character despite all of that without it being anachronistic. I enjoyed this story very much and look forward to reading the rest of the series. Mild to medium steam. Publishing Date October 30, 2018. #NetGalley #TheHighlanderWhoProtectedMe @VanessaKelly

    The battle is hard won, the fire is never-ending.

    There are no victims only survivors. Kelly dreams up a stunningly, captivating tale of heartache, bravery and romance. Royal and Ainsley are a little bit broken but no less heroes. Both are looking to find their place in a world judgment, cruelty and war. They find that place in each other's hearts. The Highlander Who Protected Me is a slow burn. Love kind of sneaks it's way into your heart. The battle is hard won, but the fire is never-ending.
