My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Set in Scotland in 1599, Dawning is a historical romance. Triona MacAlastair fell in love with Ronan at a tender young age. Now they are older she has eyes only for him. But Ronan wants land, money and respect before he will feels worthy of Triona.

She must let Ronan go and waits everyday day for his return, but after 4 years of waiting she begins to wonder if he’ll ever come back. Triona finds comfort in another, but still yearns for her man.

Rumours spread of a warrior known as Blackhawk and Triona’s father seeks him out to protect Triona when her life becomes endangered. The path to love is never smooth and Triona battles with herself and the men in her life, will she ever be able to capture and keep the one she truly desires?

This was a well written love story and I enjoyed all the battles of strong wills and frustrations that the characters went through. There was some lovely settings and I could almost smell the Scottish heather myself.
