Hannah and the HIghlander by Sabrina York

Author: Sabrina York
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Date of publication: September 2015

Hannah Dounreay has no time for suitors who only seem interested in her family’s land, which she manages as well as any man. If she marries, she wants to be loved for the educated, independent woman she is. But when a strong, silent—and spectacularly handsome—Highlander saves her from a violent attack, her heart is stirred. Who is this man? And if he asks for Hannah’s hand, will she be able to resist him?

Love is the most powerful weapon of all.

Alexander Lochlannach, Laird of Dunnet, has no time to lose. The Highlands are in an uproar as clans battle for land—without mercy—and Alexander can’t afford to fall for the wildly attractive, strong-willed Hannah. What’s more, he has a desperate secret, one that could destroy them both. But as their attraction turns into an all-consuming passion, Alexander has no choice but to prove to Hannah that he’s the only man for her—body and soul…

I absolutely adored this book.  I haven't read a historical romance in a while and this one was one of the best books I have read this year! Hannah and the Highlander is such a sweet romance that I read in one sitting! This story involves strong-willed  Hannah and Alexander who has earned the nick name of The Wolf..  They both decide that they must marry for political purposes as well as safety for Hannah.  She is a well sought after woman because she stands to inherit a lot of land.  Alexander needs that land.

From their first meeting, there is a pull between Hannah and Alexander.  The frustrating part for Hannah is that Alexander won't talk to her.  He has a speech impediment that makes it hard for him to get his words out quickly.  It was such a pleasure to watch these two fall in love.  What Hannah does for Alexander when she figures out his speech difficulties was just so sweet.  He is such a gentle giant who really cares about his people.

I won't give too much away because you really should experience their love story yourself.  There are other great characters as well. The next book, Susana and the Scot comes out in December.  I can't wait to read it!
