REVIEW: Yesterday's Promise By Michele Paige Holmes

**Amazon Top 30 bestseller in Scottish Historical Romance**
YESTERDAY’S PROMISE: A Hearthfire Scottish Historical Romance, Book 1
In the year 1761--Scottish Highlands:
Nineteen-year-old artist Katherine Mercer dreams of selling her paintings to help support her struggling family. Before she has the opportunity, Katherine learns she is to be sold—or practically so—given in marriage to a lord she has never met or even heard of. In return, a much-needed settlement will be made upon her mother.
Katherine’s situation goes from frightening to surreal when her husband-to-be Laird Collin MacDonald arrives with an entourage of men, each heavily armed and speaking with a thick brogue. As if leaving all she knows behind and traveling to another country with strangers isn’t bad enough, Katherine soon discovers a Scottish heritage she knew nothing of, a brother-in-law who wants her dead, and far more at stake with her paintings than she had ever imagined. Forced to turn to her reclusive husband for answers, comfort, and even her very survival, Katherine begins to unravel the mysteries of her past and what it is to love and be loved.

Another amazing bOok by Michelle Paige Holmes and she definitely doesnt disapoint at all. I have become a big fan of this author as I have reviewed many of her books and I have fallen in love with each character and book she writes. She is truly one of the top authors out there right now.
THis is a wonderful novel about The Scottish/British termoil and how a young man gets through his father being murdered and ends up meeting a competing scotish family where he slowly grows up and his and a young girl fall in love.
Collin and Katie not a pair you imagine to fall in love but it works and they just fit and compliment eachother.
Collin is definitely a different character full of pride and family honor. In the begining he is utterly stunned that a lil child such as Katie would dare talk to him but at the same time he cant be cruel to an innocent young child.
I wont lie I have a big weakness for Scottish novels they just call to me and this one was no different absolutely amazing.
5 stars
