My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There’s something about the Scottish Highlands that charms me. So whenever possible I do pick up highland romances and To Dance In The Glen was a really entertaining and captivating read.
The opening chapter of the book was totally painful and I didn’t want to give an image to the scene being described. But it sets the story so beautifully and shows the reader that true love can never be replaced. To Dance In The Glen has quite a few things going on, of course there’s the love between Ewan and Meg that is against the social norms but there’s also the intrigue about the games the English play to oust the clan from their lands and also there’s the father’s helplessness in trying to save his family and thereby commit treason, each and every segment of the story was wonderfully done.
Meg as a poor crofter’s daughter has spunk and determination, her courage to stand up to the Laird and talk openly about her stand was endearing and I loved how the romance grows between the two of them. Ewan’s character changes from the pleasing playish ladies’ man to the responsible Laird caring about his family and clan and becomes the able leader leading his people.
To Dance In The Glen has romance, action, intrigue and all fans of this genre are really gonna be happy reading this.

An exciting, tantalizing romance! Meg, a poor crofter’s daughter, finds her life taking a tumultuous turn when she is sent to the Laird’s castle for her own safety. English marauders, accusations of witchcraft, and treason are just the beginning for her.
Meg Lachlan is certain of her place in her clan. When English mercenaries plaguing the Scottish Highlands aim their attacks on Clan MacLeod and Meg herself, the Laird’s son takes up the mantle to protect the young woman.
Ewan MacLeod believes that bringing Meg to the castle will guard her against the English attacks, but when he finds his passions for the young lass growing, they begin a love affair that many call into question — most notably the daughter of a nearby laird who has her sights set on Ewan for herself.
As Meg and Ewan struggle against accusations of witchcraft, the English step up their onslaught, and it seems the clan is beset on all sides, until the discovery of a traitor in their midst threatens to tear down all that Meg and Ewan have worked so hard to build.
With the security of their clan, their families, even themselves at risk, can they rise above all the challenges that stand in the way of their love?
Bonus: This version contains an excerpt of the second in The Glen Highland Romance series — The Lady of the Glen.
