A HIGHLAND RUBY by Brenda B. Taylor was a well written romance that featured Flora Vass and Gavin Munro. I have to say that I really enjoyed the story as well as the romance and tension between the two of them. Having the two be apart for so long and yet still having that spark was a perfect part of the romance between them. It struck me as a real true love sort of story. The author did an amazing job in developing both Flora Vass and Gavin Munro as individuals and as a couple. I really enjoyed the book and found the adult content to be tastefully written!
