    Love the Series!

    I agree with the other reviewer, you really need to read the whole series, to fully enjoy all the crossover character's. There were some surprises that I wasn't anticipating, and a different story line. Would like Rob to have more back bone, not your usual strong laird. Still a good read. (Ljb)

    I¿m always thrilled to find a new Highlander book, so I had high

    I’m always thrilled to find a new Highlander book, so I had high hopes for this one.  I thought the plot was an interesting one with a twist I had not seen before. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by the two main characters themselves.




    My favorite couples in Highlander romances consist of a strong, alpha man and a strong, independent woman.  I realize the entire Highland cannot consist of lairds, but these are romances, so I get to choose what I love.




    Rob is the bastard son of the former laird and and although he has been selected as laird, he is not accepted by his entire clan.  In particular, his cousin Simon challenges him because he believes he should have been chosen as laird.  Rob does little to nothing to control Simon and the clan is in turmoil because of this.




    The Highland lairds I love would have smacked Simon down at the very onset of his troublemaking.  They certainly wouldn’t have allowed him to continue to challenge their decisions.




    Lilidh (pronounced Lily - I had to look it up) has become a widow after only a few months of marriage. She is returning home to her family so that they can find her a new husband.  And that’s what I didn’t like about her.  She rarely seemed to stand up for herself.  Where are the feisty heroines of my favorite Highlander romances?  She doesn’t have any opinion regarding who she is to marry and where she is to live.  She leaves all the decisions up to her father and clan.




    This book is a spinoff of Brisbin’s MacLerie series.  Lilidh’s parents are the couple from the first title in the series: Taming the Highlander and make regular appearances in this book.  If you are a fan of The MacLerie’s, you really do need to read this book.  It’s always fun to visit couples from books you love and find out how they turn out.




    Maybe I would have enjoyed this one more if I had read the previous books.  I did feel like I was missing the backstory on occasion.  Then again, I really think Rob’s lack of backbone would have disappointed me no matter what.

    Great story

    I love this series and found myself yelling at Connor. As always, Teri does not disappoint.
