5.0 out of 5 starsRedemption Removes One's Sslf-Doubt
Reviewed in the United States on August 8, 2017
Emma Prince knows how to tell a story! Robert the Bruce sends Garrick and Burke Sinclair on an information gathering mission to the Borderlands. These two individuals are as different as night and day when it comes to personalities-- Garrick, the almost sullen introverted warrior and Burke -- the smooth talker and charmer. On the journey to Dunbraes Garrick nearly runs overs maiden, Jossalyn Warren, as they near the town. The incident is important because she vouched for the two warriors when Jossalyn took them to the blacksmith where they found work. Jossalyn, sister of Raef Warren, wants to get away from her brother. Her brother does not want her to use her healing skills. More importantly, he is a vicious, self-centered and dangerous man. How desperate was Jossalyn to get away? She hid in the wagon when the Sinclairs left for the Highlands. The story includes a cat and mouse game between Raef and the Hughland Bodyguard. The ending is a positive one that beautifully ties together a beautiful story of love, adventure, and minds that see some of their adversaries in a very different light.
4.0 out of 5 starsHighlander's Redemption: The Sinclair Brothers Trilogy, Book Two
Reviewed in the United States on February 6, 2015
I really wanted this book to be better than the first one......and I think it is. Either I've become used to her writing style, or it truly is a better book. There are numerous grammatical errors in this book, which causes you to stutter somewhat when reading, and Ms. Prince still tends to use too many modern day phases that just don't go with the timeline.
However, with that said.....I love the story. Garrick Sinclair is a tough, no nonsense highland warrior fighting for The Bruce and Scotland's freedom. Jossalyn Warren is an abused sister of an English boarder lord, who is cruel, mean and everything that makes a bad guy so easy to hate in a story. Raef Warren has been a thorn in the Sinclair's side for a long time......he has attacked the Sinclair family holding.....he's murdered innocents, women and children and is a coward to say the least. He has tormented his sister Jossalyn, for being a healer and has physically abused her to the point she's desperate to find her freedom. Enter Garrick. He was sent on a mission by The Bruce to Dunbraes, where Warren is, as a spy along with another highlander, Burke.
Jossalyn sees her chance with Garrick and the fun begins. The transformation in Jossalyn is very interesting, from English to Scottish rebel healer along with her confidence and self esteem. Garrick undergoes a few changes himself and between the two of them, there is plenty adventure, passion, excitement, lust and love.
Good story and I do recommend this series even with all the issues I had with both books. Enjoy and happy reading....Cheers! 🍻

Great book! The only reason it took me two sittings to finish it was because I started it late at night and actually had to sleep. Otherwise I would have read it straight through. What I loved best was the respect the characters had for each other. The way their love grew out of their admiration for each other as people, not just because they wanted to sleep together.
One of the things the author did best, and which so few manage to do, is write a strong female lead who doesn't resort to being a shrew, unreasonably hard-headed or obnoxiously argumentative. She does an excellent job of drawing a likable, confident, strong female lead, one I could identify with and cheer for.
Highlander's Redemption picks up right at the ending of Highlander's Ransom bk 1. Garrick Sinclair is a Expert Archer and Mercenary for King Robert the Bruce. He is brother to Laird Robert Sinclair of Clan Sinclair. Garrick and his cousin Burke have been sent to spy on Lord Raef Warren there mortal enemy. We meet Raef in bk 1. He is cruel to his sister Jossalyn and often physically abuses her with beatings and chocking her near to death. Raef is a real piece of sick work. Disgustingly cruel.
Jossalyn is a healer which her brother Raef hates and forbids her to do. She often sneaks off to aide the Scottish villagers with her healing. Which results in her brother beating her. Sneaking out of the castle on her way to the village she runs into Garrick and Burke. They are posing as Blacksmiths to spy on the happenings of Longshanks through watching Raef.
Garrick and Jossalyn have an immediate connection. Raef has gone off visiting the dying King Longshanks Edward I to push is ideas of starting a war with King Robert The Bruce and to see if he can gain a barony.
Jossalyn decides she will escape her brother and his cruelty by hiding in the wagon with the departing Garrick and Burke. Once she is discovered she is taken back to her village. But when Garrick and Burke see the physical cruel treatment her brother is inflecting on her alongside the roadway. They decide to intervene and grab her. The battle was a bloody one, but they get Jossalyn and make a run for it. Jossalyn soon finds out that Garrick and Burke are no Blacksmiths but Highland Warriors spying for King Robert.
They fall in love as they travel through the Scottish Highlands to the Private Camp of King Robert. Once there she tells the King of her wanting to aide them with her healing skills and how badly she has been treated by her brother.
The Sinclair Brothers Trilogy, reminds me a lot of the Brilliant and Excellent Highland Guard series by Monica McCarty, which is just Awesome!! I think maybe the idea for The Sinclair Brothers Trilogy came from the Highland Guard series. With that said I think Emma Price held her own and reinventing her own views of Specially trained Highland Warriors and there love interest. I really loved Garrick and Jossalyn. They were the ideal couple. Both intelligent caring and willing to build a relationship. There romance was sexy and very sensual. My only complaint is there was no real depth or character building. The love scenes while erotic enough seemed scripted and generic. There was a Lack of Passion.
If You like stories like this I would Highly Recommend The Highland Guard Series by Monica McCarty!! However I do Highly Recommend Highlander's Redemption too!!

Not as good as the previous book though it was a good read. The plotline continues on, Scotland's fight against the tyranny of the English. Deception, betrayal, passion and love this book has it all, brutal men, battling enemies, a poisoning and more. However the book lacked the humour, depth and romantic tension of the last one.
The main characters were well written, though I didn't feel captivated by them, unlike Robert and Alwin's story. Disappointed that the author did not include information about them in this sequel, updating their progress. Burke was a welcome addition, he played an important part in both books.
An easy read. Will probably buy the novella, 2.5 which is next in the series.

A very well written love story, without dramatics or tragedies but simple and beautiful! The main characters feel real and their love is refreshing! Well done Emma Prince I can't wait for the next book!
