Loved this series. It is very well written and holds your interest throughout. The characters are all interesting in their own right. THE NARR..Show More »ATOR...was excellent. Her narration was very well done and voices excellent.
MY ONLY comment on this series is I would like just a little more steam in my romance books. Just a wee bit more!!!
This book is historically detailed with added mystery and light romance. The story reminds me of the (USA) Hatfield and McCoy rivalry but with a Highl..Show More »and twist..
I enjoyed the story and the characters I just wish there was more "spark" between the two main characters (Rory and Diana). There was romance - it just seemed a bit disjointed because the sensuality was limited. Because of this I give this book 3.5 stars.
Overall, this book is NOT a total disappointment. I still really liked it because of the adventure, mystery, and the family struggles. If you enjoy interesting historical stories that are light on steamy romance then this will be a winner for you. If not, you might want to skip this one and go on to the next.
When I read the publisher's summary for this book I was a little apprehensive about a love story between Black Duncan and Mary because of Duncan's rep..Show More »utation in the previous books. But I have to say that the author did a great job developing their relationship and allowing it to grow gradually. Both Duncan and Mary are strong characters who challenge each other both personally and socially with determination and light humor.
The minor characters are all written with vivid dimension. Duncan's parents, the children, Serena, as well as Ewan MacCrichton and Allan Breck are all memorable and distinct. As expected, some I loved and some I hated.
This story is adventurous, romantic and worth a credit.....especially if you can get it on sale.
This book was no where near as good as books 2 & 3. There was no adventure or excitement until the end. I had to back up a lot to see who was talking,..Show More » mostly because the narrator had no voice pitch differences between the male and female characters and when they switched from one to another I couldn't tell at first. I will say The ending was great, it almost made up for the rest. ALMOST BUT NOT QUITE.
