Highland Blessings is the story of a highland warrior who kidnaps the daughter of his greatest enemy and clan chief to honor a promise he made to his dying father.
Bryce MacPhearson, a highland warrior, kidnaps Akira MacKenzie on her wedding day to honor a promise he made to his dying father. While Akira's strength in the Lord becomes a witness to Bryce, she struggles to overcome her anger and resentment when he forces her to wed him, hoping to end a half-century-old feud between their clans. While Akira begins to forgive and Bryce learns to trust, a series of murders leaves a trail of unanswered questions, confusion, and a legacy of hate that once again rises between their families. Clearly a traitor is in their midst. Now the one man Akira loves no longer trusts her, and her own life is in danger. Can Bryce look beyond his pain and seek the truth? Will Akira discover the threat against her before it's too late? How will God turn a simple promise into bountiful Highland blessings?

I am a very avid reader and enjoy audible (unabridged) books when I haven't the time to sit and read a hard copy. This book/story was a waste of my time (first time I have ever felt that way about a book)The characters in this story constantly contradict themselves - one minute there would be absolute decision/conviction and the very next they would waiver - this happens over and over and over and over again - it seemed it was to just prolong the story.
Repetition - lack of follow through! Akira went from wanting Brice to give her time to consummate the marriage until there was love - too much turmoil - to then she is gonna have a bairn/child - seems Jennifer left out an important step - not that details where needed, but at least the fact that Akira finally felt secure in the love Brice and she shared.
That's just one of the examples of the inconstancy in this story.
Normally, in an audible book, I can identify with a specific character - but I due to the constant wavering of character - I did not find a character I could connect with in this story. I do not feel it is due to the Elle Newlands' performance, but to the lack of depth in the story.
The endless wavering of the character's convictions and decisions. Very wishy-washy indeed…..did not leave me with a feeling of committing ones life to Christ was portrayed in this book.
