The romance was good but it felt a little cold I didnt quite feel the chemistry that I think I should have. I could see that Rolf had genuine feelings for Megan but she held back a lot and the romance didnt quite have the punch it could have.

An absolutely lovely highland romance! I love books set in this time period, when Scotland is waging its final rebellion. Megan was actually a tough woman that fought intelligently And she was smart enough to realize that what Rolf had in mind for her clan was what was best. As with Megan, he felt very real, his actions very realistic. Megan and Rolf were each other's perfect match. And both had the same goal of bringing peace to the area. I LOVED this book.

Another great Scottish vs English novel with a strong young woman leading the clan. Can she pull off the great responsibility required to join the clans to join forces against a horrible English landlord while also helping end the bloodshed. Great read.

Over the course of the story, Rolf came to see Megan as his equal and that was a feat for the time period.

The Thorn & the Thistle is a historical romance that really wraps one up in the plot. Stubborn characters have the tendency to come across as being horribly over-the-top or spiteful, but Moffett balances Megan's stubborn streak with her fierce loyalty and ability to think and understand. Though the romance was a little slow, or more so interrupted by the drama between the Scots and English, Moffett deserves an A+ for the passion readers will see ignite.
