Guarding dreams

The Arrow: A Highland Guard Novel (The Highland Guard #9) by Monica McCarty

Just the right amount of action, reluctant love, a feisty young woman, a warrior with legendary 
skills, passion and tenderness all coupled with Scottish history (Robert the Bruce times) to make this a satisfying read on many different levels. 
The character of Gregor 'Arrow' McGregor, one of Bruce's legendary 'phantoms' is both complex and guarded, hiding the hurts of his boyhood and early manhood years.
The essence of Cate (Catroina) of Lochmaben is courage, truth and determination, yet she has her own dark secret. Gregor's ward, in love with him from the moment he rescued her from a well after being left for dead by English raiders.a warrior lass determined on vengeance.
Their story comes of age with startling revelations for both.
The storyline and the characters certainly held my interest. I read it in a few hours.
