While Akira begins to forgive, and Bryce learns to trust, a series of murders leaves a trail of unanswered questions, confusion, and a legacy of hate that once again rises between their families. Clearly, a traitor is in their midst. Now the one man Akira loves no longer trusts her, and her own life is in danger. Can Bryce look beyond his pain and seek the truth? Will Akira discover the threat against her before it s too late? How will God turn a simple promise into bountiful Highland blessings?” – Amazon.com

My Review:

Highland Blessings is a wonderful story of adventure, love, and betrayal. It is the story of two clans, who have hated each other for many years, as they try to come together as one to make peace.

Akira MacKenzie is kidnapped on her wedding day by Bryce MacPhearson, a man from a rival clan. Although the two clans signed a peace treaty and agreed to have Akira marry the chief of the MacPhearson clan, Evan the chief of the clan had refused. Now that Bryce has kidnapped Akira, she starts to get to know more about the rival clan and about Bryce. When Evan the man Akira was supposed to marry dies, Akira must now marry Bryce against her will. Seeing her father is not going to stand in the way of the marriage, Akira finally comes to terms, and decides to make the best of being married to Bryce. But as people of his clan start dying, will betrayal interfere with the love they are starting to feel for each other?

Jennifer Hudson’s first book is a success, and I look forward to more books by her!
