Tess Lindsay has spent most of her life on the remote Isle of May, uncertain of her identity. Raised by the two sole inhabitants of the island, she is left to fend for herself after their deaths, until a stranger washes ashore in a storm. Tess pulls him from the surf, not knowing that in saving the Highlander, Colin, she is saving herself.
Tess and the Highlander was one of the few Avon True Romance For Teens that had characters I really liked; characters who seemed very real and believable. I love how Colin and Tess help one another, depend on one another without losing who they are. The beginning is pretty interesting, but once Tess returns to the mainland, the novel becomes pretty predictable. Predictable and distracting at times.
