My Highland Rebel

Delightfully shocked is all I can say about this well plotted and executed story. I never suspected the way this story would unfold and I enjoyed Cormac’s unfortunate chain of events that lead to him taking Jyne’s castle and later his heart.

This is a story that is entertaining and though Jayne is very naive in many ways it was intriguing watching her become a confidant women through all the trials and tribulations. Her character is a prime example of how one can become more then what others think they are or allow them to be because of fear and/or love.

Cormac was a little harder to figure out because he spent his whole life hiding his feelings so he became a puzzle to me that I needed to put together. The further one gets into the story the more of the puzzle pieces fall into place. This author’s strategic plotting allows for unsettledness in the reader because they are not sure how this can possibly be resolved without death. Thus, I sat on the end of my seat to the last page.

The secondary characters of Luke and Isabelle added another dimension to the story. Luke’s history was quite a surprise and feisty Isabelle added a little extra spark to this already interesting story.

I give this 4 STARS for how Cormac and Jyne evolve throughout the story.

Waiting For an Earl Like You

This books cover is amazing. It is very dynamic much like the story within the pages. December is a month of reading new authors to me and I am excited to add the Author Alexandra Hawkins. This story drew my attention with the blurb about twin brother’s but what kept me reading was the tension between the twins over Olivia.

Having always loved watching the interaction between twins this book stands out for the tension between the two which Thorn was at a loss to understand. Filled with animosity between these two brothers it adds just the right amount of tension to make the story very interesting. Thorn is a typical first son. Always in charge and it was fun watching how the author expanded his stiff personality to accommodate Gideon and Olivia’s relationship.

Incorporated in this story is the drama between Olivia and her future stepmother. Lets just say I loved the solution to this relationship and all the drama around these two woman.

My heart was full at the end of this book when Olivia finally understood the dynamics between the three of them. Though this book was amazing throughout I was still left wondering why Gideon disappeared years ago. I am hoping it will be explained in the next book which I will definitely read when it comes out.

I give this 4 STARS for the amusing interaction between Thorn, Gideon and Olivia as well as the ending to this book.

Highland Sinner

Way before I wrote book reviews I feel in love with Hanna Howell’s books but unfortunately I haven’t read any recently, though I keep buying them and adding them to my To Be Read Book List. So I was excited to read this book and see what was up with the Murray Family. Author Hannah Howell continually surprises me with the variety of her stories. I can never get bored and this is why she is on my Must Read Authors list.

Morainn Ross was perfect. Her strength of character and how she survived ostracization shows women that it it possible to be strong and stay true to oneself against all odds. Throughout the book she keeps her wits about her and though she becomes afraid she remains strong to her core. This is truly a women to admire and exemplify.

This book had a little bit more violence than I like to read but it was so well written that I couldn’t quit reading it. It wasn’t the main focus of the story but it did a great job of setting up the plot. Sir Tormand Murray sure ah….liked his women and there was a part that had me laughing at his lack of control when they were around. But it was enduring to see how his family members and friends ribbed him about this and how the chain of events changed his life.

I give this 4-1/2 STARS for it’s ability to keep the reader on the edge of their seat throughout the book and it is quite a ride.
