About The Highlander’s Kilted Bride:
Publisher: Zebra (August 22, 2023)
Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
The youngest brother in Clan Kendrick has become a charismatic force in his own right—especially when the perfect woman gallops into his life—in the latest novel in USA Today bestselling author Vanessa Kelly’s sparkling Scottish Regency series.
Charlotte “Charlie” Stewart would rather don a kilt and ride her horse than simper in a ballroom. But with her younger sister about to be wed, she can’t escape the pressure to be next. A husband has been chosen, and Charlie’s fate seems set. Until an afternoon gallop sends her horse colliding with Kade Kendrick, the broad-shouldered Highlander who was once her childhood pal . . .
As a youth, Kade felt overshadowed by his older siblings. Now he’s a renowned musician whose fame provides cover for his other work—as a spy. Home from his latest mission, he’s annoyed to be roped into attending the wedding of a family friend—until it reunites him with the fearless tomboy who has become a breathtaking beauty. And though his thoughts should be on a new concerto, Kade is soon distracted by rival suitors, a dangerous quest—and the unconventional woman who fills his soul with music and his body with desire . . .

This is my fourth book by the author and like the others before it, I found the book to be a lovely diversion from my heavier reads. Our hero and heroine were childhood friends but are now all grown up and as it always goes in a romance, they don’t know they are perfect for one another until they do.
This is the last book of a series but don’t despair – you do not need to have read the others to enjoy this novel. I had not read all that came before and truth be told it has been a while since I read the others I have. Each book is its own story and doesn’t need the others – they enhance each other, not require each other. How’s that for perfect?
This is a lively read with delightful characters in a gorgeous setting. What more could one ask for a book to while away a few hours to take you away from all the ugh that is today’s news? Beautiful people, a little conflict, someone to hate and lots to love. Head on out to get your copy!
