Love can be the greatest possession.
Brianna Lindsay's grip on the inheritance that is rightly hers hangs by a thread. If the town finds out her father has died, Brianna will be forced into marriage with her loathsome cousin, Lord Robert, and will lose all of Edzell Castle and its lands. To protect her home, she'll have to trust a complete stranger, a brooding Highland barbarian who sweeps into Edzell with a small retinue and insists on replacing her Captain of the Guard. He proves his worth by defeating her men and she has no choice but to accept his offer.
Though his motives are suspect, Colin MacKinnon has nobility in his blood and good intentions in coming to Edzell. He seeks his own kingdom, one to rival his father's, and sets out to conquer Brianna in the best way he knows how-with seduction.
Brianna never thought of all the wealth she protects, the one thing she has left completely vulnerable is her heart. Colin never thought that of everything he stands to achieve, he might have to face the unexpected pain of loss. Together, they must navigate a treacherous world of spies and intrigue, of legacy and fidelity, of love and betrayal, to find what is truly worth possessing.

Martin’s second 17th-century Highland novel sizzles as a Scottish Highlander meets his match with a lady of the Lowlands…Readers will greatly admire Martin’s ability to capture their attention with the combined allure of romance and the swift-moving elements of suspense.

Possession of Highland is another page turner with lots of plots within plots with so many curves and turns was simply a joy to read!

This is the second book by Madeline Martin. I had a hard time putting this book down...I smiled and cried while reading this book and look forward to Ms. Martin's next.
There is a lot of conflict in this story...This is where Madeline Martin demonstrates her brilliance as an author. The conflicts never felt overwhelming to the reader, they were so tightly woven into the love story that it was natural.
