Overview

A desire that defies all limits...and a love that was meant to be...

Scotland 1502. Akira Neish has been raised as a peasant, her belly often empty and her family subject to the cruel whims of her clan's laird. To the clan's children, the horned shaped birthmark she bears means she is a witch. But she is neither peasant nor witch-and now the man who knows the truth has returned to claim her for his own.

Calin MacLeod has kept Akira's secrets and to avenge his father, the sensual young laird must marry her. He is more than a match for the fiery nature of the woman he adores. Yet the passion they share-and truths that can no longer remain hidden-could rip all of Scotland apart...

"Fascinating...well-crafted romance. The appeal of Killion's characters comes from their honor, intelligence and humanity." -Romantic Times, 4-star review

I hate comparing books and authors, but for some reason I feel I just have to with Highland Dragon and Ms. Killion. I would have to say that any fan of Lynsay Sands historical romances will love this book. Highland Dragon brought to mind one of my favorites, The Brat.

Raise your hand if you love men in skirts.........OK, OK kilts! Does it really matter? They are all sexy as hell and I do adore a brutish alpha male with a sensitive heart in a kilt. Oh and that lovable Scottish brogue. How can I contain myself. Well, it was hard I tell you, damn hard reading HIGHLAND DRAGON by Kimberly Killion, because I fell in love. In love with a wounded Scottish Highlander with a heart of gold, a heart that has been tormented by tragedy and death and war so much loss. A Scottish Highlander who's heart is under lock and key due to being blinded by his quest for vengeance of his father's death. A Scottish Highlander who is now the MacLeod Laird and must protect his clan more than ever against a tyrannical and murderous Beast. A Scottish Highlander who falls in love unexpectedly and allows the steel cage his heart has been locked away in to shatter and break free as he discovers life and love have more value than his vengeance. There is something to live for and her name is Akira, Akira Neish. I was so excited when I finished this book because it was just THAT good, it has taken me a few days to right this review and gather my thoughts. I truly loved it so much that I feel like I want to tell you EVERY detail so you too can fall in love with Akira & Calin. And I know you won't regret adding it to your TBR List.

Strong characterizations and a totally gripping premise will draw you into this remarkable story, but it is the interaction between the hero and heroine which keeps you devouring every word. Kimberly Killion has crafted a most satisfying story set in early sixteenth century Scotland featuring the spirited individuals who lived and loved during this turbulent period in history.

    GREAT BOOK!

    I absolutely loved this book. I do not read romance novels a lot, but this one and her previous book "Her One Desire" were amazing. I am a fan already and CAN"T wait until she releases another novel. I recommend this book!

    I thought the story was a bit predictable with familiar Highla



    I thought the story was a bit predictable with familiar Highland romance tropes, BUT the hero is sooo sweet and romantic I can forgive the author for that. The heroine, at times, got on my nerves and I had a hard time believing she could go from innocent virgin to sex kitten in a scant amount of time the story takes place. The initial love scene left me wanting but the author makes up for it later in the book with some scorching romance between the H/H. The ending was truly romantic and wrapped up all the loose ends nicely. Despite the highs and lows of the story, the writing is solid and overall an enjoyable read.

    Read it!! Very Good.

    I loved the characters, Akira and Calin make this highland romance perfect. Akira the heroin in this story is stong, brave, stubborn, and believes in her true soul mate. Calin is like all highlanders handsome, strong and brave. He brands Akira with his fathers ring when she is born and claims her as his and will do everything in his power to keep her.

    Not Recommended by me!

    I felt the writer spent more time trying to put violence in this book. I actually found it depressing and very stressful. I read books to uplift my spirits not to drown myself with despire. Rape or any torturous violence is something I don't like to read about. The brief summary deceived me. If I had known this book was written so poorly and vile I would've moved along and not consider this book.

    This is an Absolutely Great book and story

    I cant tell you how much I enjoyed this book. It was a long book and worth every page. There wasnt I time I wasnt totally pulled in. I read it in a day. It was romantic, believeable, intimate, everything a great romance novel should be. If this is a new author she has quite the career ahead of her. Thank you and keep up the great work.
