Highland Rose by Celeste Barclay

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 What I love most about Celeste Barclay’s writing is the detail and organic feel her relationships showcase.  The couples in these romances take their time getting to know one another before plunging into marriage, even when it would be prudent to rush.  Blaine and Rose start rough, but it is beautiful to watch their burgeoning loveContinue reading “Highland Rose by Celeste Barclay”

Rebellion’s Fire by Mary Lancaster

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I adored Mary Lancaster’s Regency and Victorian-era books and was delighted to read a medieval-era book from her.  I am conflicted about this book.  The plot is exciting and moves quickly. The characters are vivid and intriguing.  Two things held this book back for me.  There are multiple points of view throughout the book, which I found distracting.  Also,Continue reading “Rebellion’s Fire by Mary Lancaster”

Highland Honor by Hannah Howell

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 Highland Honor is the second book in The Murray’s series.  Highland Honor was first published in 1999.  This is a long series, twenty-two books.  I quickly discovered that the synopsis did not match the actual story.  Gisele is running from a murder she didn’t commit.  Nigel is a knight who takes her to Scotland to escape the bounty onContinue reading “Highland Honor by Hannah Howell”

Highland Reckoning by Willa Blair

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2I enjoyed Drummond and Morven’s journey; it was full of action and moved swiftly. I loved Morven’s connection with her son; she placed his well-being above everything. Drummond’s loyalty and strength were impresive. The secondary characters were well thought out. I missed the spark between Drummond and Morven. I can’t pinpoint it exactly, but IContinue reading “Highland Reckoning by Willa Blair”
