What did you like best about When a Highlander Loses His Heart? What did you like least?

I listened to Book 1 and 2 of this series in a matter of days. I am in love with all the characters and the enthralling plot. I couldn't wait to learn of Graham's romantic fate. I'm sorry to say though, his love interest is not very interesting. She's actually pretty dumb. As the reader, I am having a difficult time trusting her because of her poor actions and whining. After being in love with Bridget, a strong loveable character, how can he be attracted to this woman?

An example of Isobel's stupidity****SPOILER ALERT****: She tries running from Graham (again), even with the enemy close behind. Then she gets captured and is surprised. Duh! Then she stabs Graham and then says, "OH You're bleeding!" Again, DUH. I understand that she has had a sheltered life, living in the convent, but still her naivety was too much. Her character is not very focused. One minute she is meek, the next overly stubborn and for really no apparent reason. Her stubbornness leads her to make irrational decisions, which puts the characters THAT I LOVE in danger.

Because I love this series I am determined to finish this book to see what happens to the characters. I really hope Cameron has better luck in the next book. The narrator's performance made this book somewhat tolerable.

Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Johnstone? Why or why not?

Only because book 1 and 2 were so well done, I will try another book; however, if it fails me like this one did I probably won't pick up another by Johnstone.

Which scene was your favorite?

I haven't come across a good scene yet.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Absolutely not.

This was my first J.J. McCoy book and I am in love. It had the right balance of steaminess, romance, and storyline. Everything made sense. The narrators did an exceptional job too. I wouldn't mind reading more books read by them either. This book is defini tely credit worthy!
