How to Marry a Royal Highlander is the last book in the Renegade Royals series, and I just about cried when I found. I love this series it’s not the kind of series you have to read but with this one it’s always it is helpful if read the previous book at least. Jumping back in to Vanessa Kelly’s series was like wrapping yourself up in a nice blanket. The Whitney sisters are as different as night as day and supportive of each other no matter what that’s why I love them. In the last book it was Evie, now its Eden’s turn.
Eden Whitney created a scandal, and now all her so called friends and suitors shunned her, her only hope is an extended vacation until the gossip dies down. Alasdair Gilbride has dreaded going home but when Eden needs some place to rusticate he offers his home in Scotland. Eden and Alec were always sniping at each other never guessing that it was because they were too afraid to admit they loved each other. The journey north spending so much time together they slowly began to realize what their true feeling were, but when Alec drops the bomb that his Grandfather expects him to marry the woman of his choosing upon his return. Alec wants Eden’s help to persuade his intended to cry off the wedding.
Alec’s family is dead set on him marring, it was a deathbed promise and to highlanders that’s a big deal. Alec and Eden love each other deeply but whenever one of them decides what the best course of action is the other does something to change their mind. Alec’s intended doesn’t help at all she has been convinced since she was sixteen that this is what she should want and won’t cry off until Alec and Eden are caught in a compromising position. Despite finally being relieved of his duty and marring Eden someone in his family isn’t letting go quite as easily.
I loved the slow realization of Eden and Alec’s feeling. I also love Mrs. Whitney she comes off so horrible in the last book but you see a different side of her and she comes off more likable by the end of this book. Also joyous news this maybe the last Renegade Royals but it’s not over the next books are going to be about the illegitimate girls of the royal family. YAY!
