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.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

The Trouble with Dukes

Great introduction to a new series and written in an uncommon way. I loved my first book by Grace Burrows, in fact she in on my authors to watch list. This story had a lot of characters from other books to the Windham series and it was highly entertaining to see where these relationships stood and how the siblings and family members protected each other. Additionally the Author does a phenomenal job of giving the reader a taste of other books to the series and draws them into wanting to read their stories.

This story is chock-full with robust detail and scenery descriptions that draws the reader into not only this story but the stories of the other characters. I will admit that I was somewhat confused by all the characters in this story but the author saved the day with her beautifully done family trees.

Megan, I love love love her! She is so real including the fact that she wore glasses. Her characters rich detailing will endure the reader and instantly create a bound of wanting her to have everything she desires. Gifted with compassion and the ability to see below the covering of Hamish to who he really was , she won my heart.

Hamish, poor Hamish. I mean really such an interesting man portrayed or thought of as a barbarian. This is where the author excelled in opening up his character slowly like peeling an onion. Slowly as the layers disappeared the reader is treated to an amazing misunderstood man. Well done!

I really look forward to the next book to this series and hope that you will give this book a read…..

I give this 4 STARS for being delight and written in an uncommon way.

Jillian's Touch

Once again the author Jax Jillian writes a beautiful emotion packed story that will make you cry while feeling warm and fuzzy inside. This author is the queen of feelings and love letters and she did not disappoint me with this beautiful written love story created within a tragedy.

There is not much I can say that will not give away this story so I will talk about how it made me feel. Sad, fearful, hopeful and finally heartfelt thanks.

As I read the story I admired Jillian for her dedication to Nathan and her desire to make sure he lived. Nathan struggled so much and at no time did he appear pathetic or not believable in his actions. There was a mystical feel to Nathan and Jillian’s relationship which does get explained further in the book but it works so well that the reader will start to feel pained by the turn of events and want so desperately for this story to have a happily ever after.

It was written with deep emotions and the flow of the story was executed with a beautiful finesse.

I give this 5 STARS and will always read any book by this author because she knows how to make me cry is such a beautiful emotional way.
