Review: A Sword Upon The Rose

Available June 24: A Sword Upon the Rose (Hqn)

***** 5/5 starsA Sword Upon A Rose by Brenda Joyce

A Sword Upon the Rose is impossible to put down with the perfect mix of history, romance and intrigue.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like a solid plot of war and politics tied in with your romance
  • If you like historical romance with Highland heros

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4.5/5 for characters
  • 4.5/5 for plot
  • 5/5 overall
  • Note: Steamy factor (3 of 5 … little steaminess)


In this captivating Highland romance, Alana, a bastard with elite  family ties meets Iain, a formidable Scottish leader for Robert Bruce. The two are swept away into a romance but stuck in the middle of war, Highland politics and ambitious men and women. The intriguing story kept me up until 2:30 a.m.. With characters so wrapped up in the Scottish politics and ambitious leaders, Brenda Joyce makes this story more than a romance and a thoroughly alluring read.
