Author's Website
As children three cousins made a wish for true love upon a magical dragon amulet, little realizing how daring their destinies would be as Highland Brides

Rachel Forbes had never wed, for none compared to Liam, the love of her childhood. But Rachel was high-born and Liam an orphan, so marriage was impossible. Now grown, a chance meeting unites Rachel with the man of her heart, and it seems their destinies are entwined once more, for Liam is her rescuer and she must keep him by her side if she is to stay alive.

Liam is tempted beyond all reason by Rachel. She has the eyes of a saint, the smooth skin of a princess . . . and lips he cannot resist kissing. He knows he has no name or family to offer --- but given the eternity he has endured without her, does he dare risk the consequences of claiming her innocence and promising her a lifetime of love?
My Review 
I haven't read much of this author, but I have read a couple, so I was hoping this would be a fun read, and I found I really liked it for the most part. It took a little while to get into, but once I did, I started to enjoyed the story. I liked the way the author takes the plot with the interesting variety of unique twists to the plot that gave it a certain dramatic flair. There is a bit of a paranormal aspect, that wasn't overly done, and it felt like it flowed smoothly along with the story line. The characters were lively and fun to see them interact. It takes places back in the early 1500's, so we see a side of a culture that proved evident that the author did some good research (which is a vital factor when writing historical's). There was such a witty and sensual side to Greiman's writing that made the story become alive. I enjoyed seeing the way this story is put together in such a way that it can appeal to any romantic heart. I lively read that can be enjoyed for the summer time. Definitely looking forward to reading more from this author.

First Line 
Lighting forked across the inky sky, slamming white light through the tower's arrow slits. 

Favorite Quote 
"Tis not meant to be."
She was breathing hard and fast and refused to understand him. "What is not?"
"This," he rasped.
But just then their fingers inadvertently brushed. 
The fire just doused was renewed. 
Liam clenched his jaw, and, seeming unable to help himself, he snatched her hand and moved toward the wagon. She could do nothing but follow him. Wanted to do nothing but follow him, to feel him pressed against her, to hear her name on his lips.
