Publishers Description
It is 1568 and Mary, Queen of Scots, is imprisoned in Lochleven Castle. But her supporters, including noblewoman Heather Gordon, are planning a rescue.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointing  Jan 25, 2008
This book is sold as inspirational fiction, but it should be more accurately billed as historical fiction. It was previously released under a different title before the author began writing Christian fiction. It shows. In one description of the hero Duncan, she describes him as 'one fine piece of man flesh.' That is hardly a work of Christian fiction in my opinion. If you took all Morgan's references to God and grouped them together, they might take up 3 pages in the entire book. The books she has written recently are much more spiritual in nature and very good.

She is very good at her research and her Scottish descriptions of life in the sixteenth century, however. I truly enjoyed the historical aspect of the books. But Christian fiction it does not really meet the criteria. At times I was ashamed to be reading it.
Super storytelling  Jan 18, 2008
This is an inspirational story and historical romance.

Although she is betrothed, Heather Gordon knows she will never love the man she plans to marry. And that's just fine with her. Because of other betrayals in her family, Heather vows never to fall in love.

When her father's plan to rescue Mary, Queen of Scots, requires Heather's help, she gladly agrees-until she meets the braw and bonny highlander, Duncan MacKenzie. Duncan's raw masculinity and tender compassion towards his parents threaten to undo the chains around her heart, much to Heather's chagrin.

Duncan can't imagine a scenario that would allow him to marry the lovely heiress who is acting as his tutor. His strength, forged by working alongside his father in the highland hills, is no match for a simple smile or kind word from Heather. She proves impossible to resist. Duncan protects Heather from outlaws, bad weather, and meddling relatives. But who will protect him from the pain of her impending departure?

Secrets are revealed. Betrayal, danger, and interfering fathers threaten to keep Duncan and Heather apart. Will the love they share be strong enough to survive?

Kathleen Morgan's fiery characters take on a life of their own, thanks to the wishes, hopes, secrets, and hurts that the author gives them. Well-crafted and likeable, the hero and heroine fight for what they believe in, even when the odds seem impossibly stacked against them.

The sixteenth century brogue used by the characters takes a bit of getting used to, but Morgan keeps it consistent throughout the novel and it does add to the feeling of being in the highlands of Scotland.

Morgan's research into this time period shines through by not being obvious. Her gentle touch with the book's setting and fine details are refreshing and draw the reader even farther into the story.

Armchair Interview says: For those who love historical fiction, romance, suspense and sparks, this is a must read.
engaging sixteenth century Scottish romance  Jan 1, 2008
In 1568 illegitimate James Stewart claims the Scottish throne when he imprisons his half-sister Mary Queen of Scots in Lochleven Castle. Mary's loyal supporters are outraged by this affront and plot to rescue the woman they feel is the rightful English queen.

One of Mary's most ardent defenders Lady Heather Gordon concocts a daring but dangerous scheme to liberate her Queen. To enter Lochleven, which is strongly guarded by usurper loyalists, she must persuade Duncan Mackenzie, who has lived his life in the wilds of the Highlands to masquerade as foppish Colin Stewart who has access to Castle. Pretending to be a tutor, she struggles to convince the rugged Duncan to abet her cause; instead he wants nothing to do with the plot except that enables him to spend time with Heather who tries to teach him to be a fop.

AS HIGH AS THE HEAVENS is an engaging sixteenth century Scottish romance in which the male lead provides a fresh face. Heather is a heroic loyal person, but it is the outdoors craggy Duncan who makes the tale as she tries to polish the diamond in the rough by turning him into an aristocratic fop. Fans of the sub-genre will appreciate the tale of love between the tutor and the student with the royal intrigue in the backdrop.
