This romantic highland tale is a very simple story that starts out slow (for character development & interest) and ends nice. Laurel and Conor are b..Show More »oth very stubborn which gives this love story spunk and chemistry. Although the first half was a bit slow it did pick up and kept me interested. All the other characters are interesting and well developed which I appreciate.
Also, I have to say, although I enjoyed this book it seemed to be another Cinderella type romance novel rather than a highlander story. There weren't many struggles or battles.....just toward the ending. So, if you go into this book knowing its not a typical highland warrior tale but more of a spunky romance......I think you will enjoy this one.
Any highlander book that has a strong skillful woman as the heroine has got my attention. This second book in the series introduces the heroine, Maken..Show More »na, as a strong willed woman who is more of a tom-boy type than a girly girl. She is well trained with a sword but lacks the social and hospitality skills of a Laird's wife. As the story progresses she has to learn how to be a woman in more ways than one. The hero, Colin, who is also a strong warrior, has deal with being a new Laird and controlling his lust for Makenna, The story is made more interesting because of the return of Laurel and Connor from book one. This really added to the depth and appeal of the story.
This book is adventurous, romantic, lusty, passionate, steamy, intimate and has a good storyline. I liked this one and am looking forward to book three.
There's so many of these Highland Series out at the moment that me thinks that I'm not the only one drooling at the thought of a big brawny, claymore ..Show More »wielding, handsome hunk in a kilt (sigh).
Cole, the handsome hunk, is however cold, full of anger and is set on revenge and he hates the English (as to why you'll have to listen to it). He's given a mission by his manipulative sister-in-law to go to England a fetch 'a package' which is going to have far reaching consequences in his life. Ellenor's a smart, feisty, no nonsense, capable kind of woman but she too has demons in her closet and all men frighten her - but as soon as she sets eyes on Cole she feels drawn to him and safe, but there's a catch .... she's English.
Good romantic plot with a few sub plots, it was funny, had likeable characters, a villain or two, kidnapping, murder and, of course, a touching tender romance. However, I did slightly feel the plot peaked then dipped a wee bit and seemed to go on and on then suddenly there's a climatic abrupt ending and bang you're jumped straight into the Epilogue. But despite this, it was an enjoyable and entertaining listen.
Worth a credit? For anyone who's into men in kilts this series is a must - so AYE 'twas a gid book.
Another good story. I adore these McTiernay brothers. They're mighty and strong and sexy but mostly I love how they fall for their women. Such a roman..Show More »tic story written well and narrated well.
