    Highly Recommended

    Wow Paula has done it again folks. This story might be short but it is filled with the Family MacGregor and why they have stolen our hearts in all of Paula's books. Of course our lovely Finn is a Grant but he is every bit a Mac Gregor in Passion,Loyalty and of course song. What a wonderful evenings read. Left my heart filled with happiness. Can't beat Paula Quinn for an early Christmas Present. PLEASE KEEP THEM COMIN PAULA.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    This was an historical romance set in Scotland in the late 1600′s and is part of Quinn’s Highlander series which I didn’t realize when I started to read it. There were references to past stories that I didn’t feel I had enough information about so, for me, I wouldn’t consider it a stand alone story.




    The characters were mostly big, brawny Scotsmen (or Highlanders). The woman were feisty in their own right especially Leslie who knew what she wanted and went after it but also felt loyalty to her family that needed her to go home with them for reasons not always known to her. The interactions between the characters did keep my interest although I was not familiar with all the Scottish words that were used.




    The plot itself was jumpy. One minute there was a rescue and the next chapter there were references to a wedding the night before. The ending didn’t give closure but it could be since this book is part of an ongoing series and I’ll learn more when I read the next book. My ereader showed there were 114 pages, so I was surprised when the story abruptly ended on page 81. Then there was an about the author page as well as an excerpt from the first book in the series. After that there was an excerpt of how the MacGregor clan began, titles of other books by this author, reviews of some of those books and info on other books I might be interested in. I personally don’t like this tactic that that leads me to think I’m reading a longer book and it turns out not to be.




    This book is part of the Highlander series which I have not read before but the characters did pique my interest enough to want to read the others in the series and hopefully fill in some blanks. I’ve always liked books set in Scotland so will add other books by Quinn to my TBR pile.




    Favorite Quote: She giggled like a shy virgin, which, thanks to him, she was no longer. He already was everything and more. She would stay with him. Her heart gave her no other choice. Her family would have to understand. Finn was the joy and the love of her life. She wouldn’t leave him this time.

    A wonderful light read!

    I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the story line and characters. I have recently fallen in love with Highland themed historical romances, and Paula Quinn did not disappoint. A perfect read for the holidays!

    One of a series

    Obvious from the first page that this story is one of a series based in medieval Scotland. Story too short for character development, so not much connection to any of the characters. About a third of the book devoted to exerpts and previews of other books---a blatant marketing ploy. (Didn't work.)

    very good must read

    This was a sweet romantic story where a Finley, a Bard one not prone to fighting but telling history of his clan and others in song., and how he comes through to save his sweetheart that was promised to another by her brothers. Finley saves her and her family from the fiancé that is not a good person. I really did enjoy this short story.

    Great -- read it!

    I Highly Recommend this book, you simply have to check it out. I read a LOT, and I was pleasantly surprised at how GOOD it was for a freebie! Usually if something is free, it lacks a little something - like a plot. And usually you find things that are not quite right, like misspelling, however that was not the case here. The action keeps you reading. The character makeup is sensible. If there are other books out there by this author, I'd pay money to read her other books.
