The Arrow, by Monica McCarty, is a thrilling continuation of her Highland Guard Series. Gregor McGregor is a legendary marksmen with Robert the Bruce’s Highland Guard who’s been forced back home because his identity has been compromised. When he comes home Gregor realizes Cate, the orphan he helped save years ago, has grown into a desirable woman. A note about the series, each book can be read as a standalone novel, but I would highly recommend reading the other books. It will help understand who all the players and what is going on the whole series is amazing.
I loved Cate. From the very beginning she proved herself to be a feisty heroine, and I enjoyed reading about all the problems she causes Gregor, who isn’t easily rattled. Gregor is a man deeply devoted to his country, his duty, and his family, and you can’t help but respect him and his commitment to those he loves. Underscoring their romance is the action that is always evident in the Highland Creek Series, with a couple of surprises you don’t see coming, set in the backdrop of the Scottish War for Independence.
