Highland Savage by Hannah Howell (2007)

Description: Beaten and left for dead, Sir Lucas Murray is a man wounded in body and soul. He has brought himself back to becoming the warrior he once was – except for his ruined leg and the grief he feels over the death of the woman he once loved… the same woman who led him into his enemies’ hands.

Dressed as a masked reviver, it is Katerina Haldane who saves Lucas as he battles for his life – and for revenge. Shocked that she still lives, Lucas becomes desperate to ignore the desire raging through his body. And Katerina becomes desperate to regain his trust, trying to convince him of her half-sister’s role in his beating. Lucas is reluctant to let down his guard, but his resistance melts once Katerina is back in his arms… and his bed. Now he must learn to trust his instincts – in battle and in love…

Review: One mistaken look caused a lot of pain for both Lucas and Katerina. We spend much of the story waiting for Lucas to figure out the truth and then wait for Katerina to stop being bull-headed. A great match these two make. For the most part, I enjoyed the book. However, it seemed to take them forever to work their problems out. There was a lot of action and it made the story go by fast. All in all, not a bad read.

Score: 3 out of 5
