Scottish Highlands

Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she's been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown's most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal--and a bold rescue--land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.


As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he's not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire...and desperate for more. With Davina's secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can't live without.


Davina Montgomery is hidden away for her own safety, in a abbey. Only a few people know if Davina's true identity, but one has betrayed her. So seeing all those that she has come to love be killed, she is saved by Scottish Laird, Robert MacGregor. Robert has no loyalty to England, but seeing a woman in distress he saves her without fully knowing what he has gotten himself into. Determined to protect Davina at all costs, he takes her to his home and clan, and after sharing a sensual embrace with Davina, he wants to keep her for good, even though he suspects her secret, and knows that he will risk everything if he wants her in his life.

The Hero 
Robert MacGregor, will be a powerful Scottish Laird, as he is the first son, and feels no loyalty to England or the throne. Roberts is a powerful warrior, and as the oldest of his fathers children, he has learned to take control and responsibility for his actions. Robert saves a young woman, but didnt realize how much she would change his life, enough for him to risk his life to keep her in his life.

The Heroine 
Davina Montgomery bears a secret, a secret that if known to any of her or her family's enemies, could end up with her killed. She has spent much of her life in a abbey, and has devoted much of her life to God. However when someone close to her betrays her, and she finds the sisters dead and without a place to go, she is saved by Robert MacGregor, whose tender kisses tempts her to risk everything for love, but she wonders if she could choose between the path set for her or the path that has chosen her, the path of true love....

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.

My Grade On This Book
