Her Highness and the Highlander - Tracy Anne Warren

While journeying home from Scotland, Princess Mercedes of Alden's coach is set upon and her personal guard is killed. Barely escaping with her life, Mercedes seeks help at a nearby inn. But since she has no money and looks little better than a beggar, her claim that she is a princess is dismissed by the townsfolk as a far-fetched tale. Utterly forsaken, Mercedes wonders what is to become of her.

After years of soldiering, dispossessed Laird Daniel MacKinnon is finally coming home. While at an inn, he is confronted by a bedraggled young woman claiming to be of royal blood. Daniel doesn't believe her wild tale, but when she asks for his protection, he agrees to serve as her bodyguard; in turn she promises to reward him handsomely once they reach London.

But Mercedes is still being pursued by ruthless hunters whose motives remain unclear. The danger increases, as does the desire that she and Daniel feel for each other, until the two of them must face the greatest danger of all: falling in love.

My thoughts:
Cute, fluffy, passionate. The end.

But ok I will say more. A princess who escapes those who want to ransom her? Kill her? Rob her? She does not know. And no one she meets believes she is a princess. But then well who would? She looks like crap after a night in the woods. Still why she just didn't go back to school beats me. Instead she heads for London, I would think that would be farther away.

Anyway, in comes a hunky Highlander to the rescue! He may not believe her, but he is a kind man who sees a woman in trouble.

Onward! Kind strangers. Kisses in the dark. And what will happen when he does realize that she IS a princess...*music of doom*

It was cute. I also liked that they sort of waited for the smexy times. A quick historical romance.
