A highlander romance that I enjoyed, Black Raven's Lady was a lovely read. It had its flaws, but it was a great romance. Raine was a likable heroine. Strong-willed and clever, she was definitely a force to be reckoned with. She could be frustratingly impulsive but, in general, she was a lovely character. Keir was good as well. He put on a gruff face but he was really quite sweet. I liked him as well. The romance was good. Keir had had feelings for Raine for a while but thought she deserved better and didn't act on them, while Raine finally realized that she felt more for him than exasperation. They were sweet together and definitely had chemistry. I had a few minor problems with the book. First, I wish that I had seen more of Raine actually realizing the good qualities that Keir had and falling for him based on those. As it was, her feelings only flipped when she thought they had been spelled together by faeries. It took down the book a bit because I didn't get a sense that she loved him for him. Second, both of the issues that Raine and Keir had with their parents were a bit odd. Raine thought that a man she saw in a vision with her mother was her birth father and Keir believed the rumors that his father had kidnapped and raped his mother. It was strange because both issues could easily have been resolved if Raine an Keir had actually asked their mothers about it. They had their reasons but I just didn't buy them completely. These issues did bring the book down for me. I still liked it but I just didn't love it. The plot moved steadily and I was kept interested the entire way through. There were plenty of thrills along the way as Raine got herself into one scrape or another. I enjoyed the story and the ending was great. Black Raven's Lady was an enjoyable historical romance. It was a sweet read that I liked. Romance lovers, you might want to check this book out. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Kathleen Harrington's highland series have been wonderful, heroic, funny, steamy romances set in one of the most romantic historical settings, and the final book surpassed all my expectations. Kathleen wove detailed, accurate, and fantastic settings, characters, and myths in the Black Raven's Lady. A superb book, and entertaining story.

OH how I love my Scottish historicals: even better if they are set further back in time.  This sixteenth century romance from Kathleen Harrington ticked all the boxes and was a fun, action-packed read.  Scotland at the time was a mass of warring clans and struggles for supremacy, and this story takes place mostly on the water surrounding the remote Hebrides Islands. (To this day, these islands are not tourist meccas or heavily populated). I had not read the earlier titles in this series, and while it wasn’t difficult to grasp the story or set characters into place, I do think readers will benefit from reading all of this series in order.   In this book, Laird Kier MacNeil is captain of his ship the Black Raven. Known as a fearsome and ruthless captain and warrior, he has his own plans and watching out for the young woman, no matter how beguiling, who hopped aboard his ship really isn’t high on his to do list.  Fortunately for us, and for Raine, Kier is honorable and does plan to do the right thing by her, and keep her safe throughout the time it takes to conduct his own business before returning her to her family.  Raine is headstrong, occasionally thoughtless and heedless of the dangers of stowing away on a ship, no matter her intentions or desire for answers.  Far from knowing or understanding the dangers she could face, Raine’s time on board seemed to push all of Kier’s buttons – intentionally and not so, and their interactions were wonderfully detailed and amusing.  We do get a solid sense of their growing attraction as Harrington insets interior monologues and points of view from each to help us solidify the connection, and the romance does build slowly and with care.   Plenty of action, battles and chances to meet several secondary characters added depth and fullness to setting, action and tension, and the flavor of Scotland was maintained with small phrases and dialect that filled out the picture.   If you like kilted alpha men and not-so-distressed damsels, this is a great story for you – and I can only believe it would be better to retreat with the complete trilogy and start from the beginning.  Harrington has a smooth writing style where each new element builds on to or establishes a start point that makes characters, settings and interactions richer and easier to visualize. It was not at all difficult to picture the characters, the setting or the action: and the time flew past as I read.  I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
