Elena has spent her entire life hiding her family name while walking the thin line between lady and servant in a Protestant household. She has kept the secret of her lineage for years, but with a new, fiercely Catholic queen on the throne, Elena's Protestant caretaker is being targeted. And when Bloody Mary discovers Elena's true identity, she must flee to Scotland to save her life.

Highland warrior, Searc Munro, has secrets of his own. In a family of healers, his dark, killing magic must never be known. When his father's life is threatened, Searc unleashes his lethal power to save him. With his clan's suspicious glances and whispers plaguing him, he sets off alone, only to find another use for his magic in saving a beautiful lass being attacked in the forest.

Teaming up as exiles, Elena and Searc head toward Edinburg to find refuge. Yet, with a series of ritual killings haunting the city and a traitor attempting to assassinate Scotland's regent, suspicion turns to Searc. As word of another British heir reaches the country, the two must learn to trust each other if they want to live.

The Highland Hearts series is best enjoyed in order.

Originally reviewed for Tea and Book.

There is always magic in the Highlands and Heather McCollum does a wonderful job of explaining how those who have been steeped in their history and accept the magic must often walk a fine line between the church and the gifts that God gave them. Ad... ...more

I'm a sucker for kilts and they are my naughty indulgence when it comes to books. Those and pirates but those do not play in here. For me This book was good and I really enjoyed it, but the magic aspect for Searc and his family felt a bit lacking. Now don't get me wrong it's a historical romance... ...more

Okay, I'll admit it. The shirtless guy in the kilt is totally the reason I picked this one up in the first place. Yep, I'm that shallow...even though a teensy part of me is concerned that this might be slightly inaccurate. (Shirtless? In Scotland? Isn't it a wee bit chilly up there? Elena often c... ...more

Crimson Heart is the third book of the Highland Hearts series by Heather McCollum, but can indeed be read alone. If you love a great historical, highlander story with just a touch of magic and fantasy you'll love this book!

Review Courtesy All Things Urban Fantasy

CRIMSON HEART marks the first time I’ve read a book in a series without having read the ones that came before – but kilts and magic? Then adding in the bonus of a historical bent? Come on. It’s a complete home-run, book wise. For me, anyway.
