    A Very Sweet Highlander Book

    This is a well written and nice Highland laird and English down trodened high born girl romance. The characters are well devolped and there are more than a few laughs along the way. So no matter if the plot is well used, authors who like Garland and Maya Banks and others can certainly afford to have this lady try her hand and suceed.

    Scotland 1118- Laird Iain MacKinnon married Mairi MacLean hopin

    Scotland 1118-

    Laird Iain MacKinnon married Mairi MacLean hoping it, and the birth of their son, would bring the clans together after many years of feuding. She despises him. After the birth, while he's holding his son, she tells him the thought of his touch again or bearing him more children is the reason.... as she flings herself out the castle window before he could stop her.

    Balfour Castle, Northumbria 1124-

    Page FitzSimon had slipped out for a nightly swim and finds herself kidnapped by a group of Scots. No one would miss her because no one knew she was gone and actually no one would even care were they to know. Her father only wanted sons and she feels he despises her.

    (She's standing there after running from them barely covered, soaking wet)... ~ She cast a glance at the others and found them all staring. mouths agape. Damnation, but she hoped their idiocy wasn't contagious - they were all bloody halfwits! Every last one of them! "Catching glowworms perchance?" she asked them. A ridiculous sight, the lot of them; their brows drew together in unison and they cast surprised glances at each other, then snapped their mouths shut.~

    Someone has taken Iain's son, Malcom, and handed him over to the English, all in the name of David of Scotland, to be a ward in the English court. Iain has plans to trade Page for his son. Rumors are that Iain killed his wife and beats his son. When Iain goes to barter for the exchange, Page's father hands over Malcom but tells him to keep Page. He doesn't want her back. To keep from hurting her with this information, he tells Page that he isn't going to give her back. That he's keeping her. And so the story begins.....

    Full of deception, betrayal, hope, acceptance, and love, this is a story that will wrap you within it's pages and pull at your heart.

    I read this years ago and it called for me to pick it back up. This entire series is one of my favorites. The next in the series are Lyon's Gift, On Bended Knee, Lion Heart, and Highland Song.

    Loved it

    Page is a girl who is unloved by her father. She wanders out alone one night and gets kidnapped and held to be traded for a Scots son who was also kidnapped. This is a story about the many different kinds of love and heart breaks. With that being said there were a couple of times I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes, and my husband asked me if I was alright. A must read!

    TAKE ME AWAY IAIN!!! What a wonderful, intriguing, suspenseful

    TAKE ME AWAY IAIN!!! What a wonderful, intriguing, suspenseful story!! I didn't find the character of Page nasty, but endearing. She suffered a lot at the hands of her father, and this obviously made her have self-esteem issues. Iain, was a dream, my heart ached for him too. The secondary character's are written so richly that I felt I was part of the story. The lovemaking, had just the correct amount of passion and descriptive to make you swoon. I didn't find the lovemaking trashy at all. If you are a Highland/Regency Romance reader, the lovemaking is slightly above mild. I highly recommend this unique storyline, and any other book by this amazing author. I am not going into the story, as other's have explained it, but just want you to know the amazing time you will have reading it. (ljb)

    Captivating I just finished reading the MacKinnon¿s Bride writte

    Captivating
    I just finished reading the MacKinnon’s Bride written by Tanya Anne Crosby.
    I found this story captivating and filled with high emotions, passion and intrigue!
    It’s also a Scottish historical romance as I love them! Once, I started to read it, I could not put it down, I fell in love with Iain. I felt drawn in the story of her characters Iain, Malcolm, his son and Page. Ms. Crosby wrote some beautiful scenes filled with humour and charm.
    This author is a fantastic medieval writer! I love her style of writing. This author has got me hooked to her Highlands stories and I’m looking forward the next book in this series.
    I highly recommend this book specially if you love Scottish romances from the Highlands!

    I like the way Ms. Crosby writes! I'm a romance junkie and Highland romance tops the list. Ms. Crosby's descriptions, knowledge of terms, language and history, plus her tender romance scenes make this book a delight, makes you feel you are really there with the characters. I would heartily recommend this book and probably the rest of the series (haven't read the rest yet myself, but intend to do so). Jan H
