Synopsis: Lady Isobel is a Norman laird’s daughter, living near the Scots border where her father, Lord Pembroke, is trying to keep the peace. But her mother was a Highlander and the man Isobel loves most of all is Laird Marcus McEwan, who has been bringing news of her mother’s people for years. But now Isobel’s father wishes her wed to an English nobleman, who will carry on his title. Isobel will wed no other man but her heart’s desire—and that is one braw Highlander from her mother’s homeland.
Laird Marcus McEwan has loved the feisty lass forever. For years, Marcus has tried to convince Lord Pembroke to allow him to wed his daughter. But the Norman lord will not allow it. Then ambushes and murders make it too dangerous for Marcus to reach a peaceful resolution.
Nothing goes as planned and keeping the lass for his own is fraught with danger, as they try to determine who was behind the killings. Isobel and Marcus will do everything in their power to ensure they are together as they have always vowed they would be.

Review Written: 8 September, 2014
Scotland seems to lend itself well to the romantic genre, and I must admit that I do hold a not so secret love of romance novels set in historical Scotland. To say the least, I sufficiently enjoyed Her Highland Hero immensely.
Lady Isobel is the daughter of Lord Pembroke, a high noble among the gentry of England being warded into a Scottish society. The world seems to be full of the greatest wonders… including a rather brawny highlander named Marcus McEwan, one of the highland Lairds. Drawing together by circumstances and love, Isobel and Marcus must find a way to keep their romance going while convincing Lord Pembroke that Isobel should be allowed to marry the man she loves.
Spear masterfully captures the time period and provides a romance that is well written and beautifully designed. The captivating notion of an English Lady and her Scottish Laird kept me entertained for hours. I highly recommend this novel for any lovers of the Scottish Romance Genre.
