Review: Binding Vows

Friday 31 January 2020

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to say, time-travelling Scottish druids who have come from the 16th century to meet present-day druid virgins was a bit too close to my limit with a book theme but I actually did enjoy the story and the characters.

As always, the story was very well written. It was a bit too close to insta-love but if you remember the pull of the druid magic then you can almost believe it possible.

The story started off almost comical with Cassy and Tara bumbling their way through a renaissance faire but when the gypsy Gwen correctly determines Tara to be a virgin, Tara and Cassy find themselves at the forefront of the celebrations. Tara, becoming increasingly unhappy with the amount of unwanted attention from the men looking to deflower her, finds herself hiding from the festivities and that's when Duncan finds her.

Duncan is challenged with making sure Gwen or Grainna is unable to lift her curse through Tara but in trying to stay ahead of the witch/gypsy, he finds himself hand-bound/married to Tara which means she must return to his home in 16th Century Scotland with him.

Once in Scotland Tara is devastated to find out she will not return home or see her friends and family again but with time, she finds herself beginning to fall for Duncan and his family.

As expected, the drama doesn't end with Tara's arrival in Scotland as Gwen/Grainna sets about tracking Tara down once again and Tara turns to the druids for help.

As I said, this is a bit far-fetched but it is a nice story with a little bit of humour, some drama and a healthy dose of romance.
