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.

WHAT A TALENTED WRITER! I have read 8 or more books by Ms. Quinn, and love them all. What she does with this Novella, is amazing, she pulls you in so quickly, that the character's feel like HOME. There is passionate lovemaking, somewhat descriptive, and we have HEA, which I love in my Romance Novels. You do not need to read the rest of the books to enjoy this one, but it would make your experience richer. I am not going into the premise of the story, as the author has described it,but is a wonderful journey reading this. (ljb)

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.

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!

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.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
