From New York Times bestselling author Paula Quinn comes a sweeping Scottish historical romance between a dashing MacGregor highlander and his English bride.

They tried to resist a marriage of convenience . . .
As the clan chief's son, Adam MacGregor is duty-bound to marry a royal heir. Yet when he meets his bride---a beautiful but haughty young lass who thinks he is nothing more than a common savage---he realizes she's more than he bargained for. But the more Adam gets to know his new wife, the more intent he is on proving her wrong about him.

But can they resist each other?
Sina de Arenberg wants nothing to do with the unsavory MacGregors, especially the fierce Highlander she now calls husband. But the more time she spends with the man she married, the more she sees his honor and courage. Just when she thinks there might be a future for her and Adam, Sina is called back to court. England isn't the place she remembers, though, and soon she'll be forced to choose between the life she once knew, and the Highlander who has captured her heart.

1712 is an interesting time in England and Scotland's history. Queen Anne is dying with no children and her nephew George is the next in line because of the Protestant/Catholic fight between the two countries. This story is about Queen Anne's protecting a dear young relative in her court, Melusina, from court intrigue and tying her to Stuart connections in Scotland ensuring they stay loyal to England. In 1712, Sina de Arenburg is a royal bastard, raised by an aunt & uncle and unrecognized by her father George of Hanover, prince elector of England. His aunt, Anne is Queen and Sina is now one of her ladies-in-waiting and dear friend. Sina is betrothed to her long time friend, William Standish, son of the Earl of Chesterfield. He's a cowardly, wimpy man she protected and friended as a child. He's been gone 3 years on his "Grand Tour" and has returned with cruel sexual tastes. Without warning Queen Anne has her sent to Scotland's Camlochlin to be married to Adam MacGregor, elder son of the MacGregor Clan Chief. Adam has run from his responsibilities of becoming the next clan chief planning it to pass to his very capable sister Abigail Marlow, wife of retired English general Daniel Marlow. By marrying to the next King of England's daughter he ensures his clan is safe from England's proscription laws and ensuring he's the next clan chief. This is an unwanted marriage for both of them and it's fun watching them fall in love. We get a fabulous visit with everyone we've come to love in Camloclin during the journey. Then it all shifts to Kensington Palace when the Queen dies and King George calls his daughter home. The marriage is still unconsummated, although they'd decided just before the summons comes. Now Sina is unwilling to return home but must and Adam walks away. It takes him a few weeks to figure out he's unwilling to let her go and dear Great Aunt Maggie cooks up the idea for him to pretend to be the grandson of the Duke of Hamilton, a lowland Scot so he can safely go to court and bring her home. Wow such action, adventures and intrigue. I loved the switching of the settings in this story so I got a taste of both of their lives. Sina must make a choice, which life does she want? Read the exciting story and decide. Thank you Forever Romance and Paula for this delightful story to review for you.

I loved Adam and Sina's story!! Commanded by the Queen to marry, neither Adam nor Sina wanted anything to do with the marriage. Adam was not ready to marry and Sina was in love with someone else. But as they spend time together, but realize that their initial impression of the other was false. But just as their feelings start to change, Sina is called back to court when the Queen dies. Now her father will decide what her future holds. Will it be with the man that she is starting to fall for or the one that she thought she wanted? This was a great addition to the Highland Heirs series. It was fun watching Adam and Sin get over their animosity and come to care for one another. I'm excited to see what Quinn has in store for us next!

“Highlander Ever After,” is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I greatly enjoyed reading this story from beginning to end. The author uses such vivid descriptions and imagery, that you really believe that you are in the Highlands of Scotland. I felt like I was watching the sunrise with the characters. The characters have such rich descriptions that you want to cheer them on. The tension in the book is palpable. You feel the love, heartache, and mixed emotions of each character. This book was a pleasure to read. I would definitely read it again. My only complaint about this book is that it had to end. I wanted to read more and to know more about the characters. I was given this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. If I had not been given this book I would have purchased it myself because I enjoyed it that much.

Adams' secret heritage puts him in an awkward position when he and Sina de Arenberg are forced to marry. The duty he never wanted could threaten his chance to live happily with Sina, but when he has to travel to England to get her back he realizes how much he is willing to risk. This story is a classic romance. It's what every hopeless romantic dreams to read about. Adam and Sina do not have the easiest relationship but the sacrifices they make to get their HEA is very inspiring and will definitely put a smile on your face. Highlander Ever After didn't engage me as much as Lord of the Black Isle (that one took my breath away!), but I still enjoyed diving back into the lives of the MacGregor clan. They're fierce, loyal, and the kind of family you'd want to have your back. I recommend this story for fans of Amy Jarecki and Grace Burrowes. *ARC provided in consideration for review*

Great characters and entertaining plot made for yet another great MacGregor story in a long line of great stories following several generations from the same family.  This one follows the heir to the chieftain, Adam, and a woman sworn to marry him by the machinations of the Queen and future king of England. They definitely had a rocky start to their marriage but Adam is persistent and doesn’t give up on trying to make Sina feel welcomed on Skye, until they receive a letter from the new king demanding her return. At first he doesn’t seem inclined to fight for a woman that from the get-go told him she loved another, but distance does help the heart grow fonder and weeks after her return to London he comes to win her back. I enjoyed their story and I am glad that it does work out among all parties involved in the end. Sweet. Passionate. Exciting. And enjoyable all around.

This was a perfect end to an epic series. Three generations of love stories balanced beautifully culminate in an exciting and comforting end. If you enjoyed any of the previous novels, this will give you all the closure you need. It was most similar in feeling to my favorite of the series-Ravished, which I still reread every year. The story was intriguing from the first page, and the romance was spot on, along with enough mystery and danger to keep you turning pages into the night. Great read!

Being that this is the 8th book in this series. You would think that you would need to read the previous books to get this one. But this is a good standalone. Basically, two people were forced to get married and coming from different lifestyles it was a rocky road. Only when she returns to her old life does she realize how petty she has been. This is not my favorite in the series but it has strong characters and a good plot. I was furnished a copy of this book by NetGalley for my honest opinion.

Paula Quinn has written some of my favorite Highlander books. She is actually one of the first historical romance authors I read. For a bit I wondered if I would enjoy this story at all, as I detested the heroine at the beginning. Sina and Adam were forced to wed at the direction of the Queen. Neither wanted this marriage, but you don't tell the Queen "no". Adam dealt with the situation stoically; Sina, however, did not. There was much crying, stubbornness and self pity. However, I began to understand her, knowing more about her past. She was taken from all she ever knew and was thrust into an entirely new world. I loved Adam from the start. He wanted to avoid being clan chief, but accepted his destiny when it caught up with him. His presence, together with that of his tightly knit clan, could not fail to pull Sina in. When she was summoned home by the King, I felt my heart break along with hers. How could they possibly overcome their separation? Adam had a plan... I loved Adam's entire clan. I do think that I would have been better served by reading the previous books first, as many references were made to past events. But it still stood alone okay; you won't be lost. Don't give up on Sina; she won't disappoint in the end. And Adam will make you sigh from the start. I received an ARC of this book courtesy of NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

I’m always on the lookout for a new romance series to read and I really liked the premise of this one. I liked Sina and Adam. They’re more alike than they think and it was amusing to watch them get to know each other. I loved all of Adam’s family and the tight knit loyalty. On Sina’s side, it was Poppy I loved the most. Plot wise, it was a bit slow. Scenes started to feel repetitive and unnecessary and at one point I did skim sections of them while at court. Overall, it was a good story with characters I liked. I am mildly intrigued about the previous books and just might to back and read some of them. **Huge thanks to Forever for providing the arc free of charge**
