Overview

Kilgannon by Kathleen Givens

A place where love and war collide—and she would be possessed by the Scottish chieftain they called . . . barbarian

Enter a world of breathtaking romance and rugged adventure. Enter the world of Kilgannon—an unforgettable story of love and treachery in a great Scottish clan. Kathleen Givens's magnificent novel sweeps from Queen Anne's London to the Highland wilderness . . . and into the hearts of one proud, passionate family: the MacGannons of . . . Kilgannon.

Mary Lowell wasn't interested in marriage despite her aunt's determination to find her a husband by the end of the London Season. Then Alex MacGannon, Earl of Kilgannon, strode into the ballroom and commanded her heart. They called him a barbarian, a rough-hewn Scot—chieftain of clan MacGannon. They said no woman could hold him, as he set sail on the high seas. But Alex returned to claim Mary Lowell as his own, to carry her off to Scotland, to his magnificent ancestral castle, Kilgannon. And as the Highlands are torn by rebellion, Mary will find passion—and danger—in the rugged land she would now call home.

Watch for the next book in the magnificent Kilgannon saga: The Wild Rose of Kilgannon, coming in November 1999 from Dell.

Kathleen Givens yanks you from your seat into the pages of her story. She tells the story in a unique way that forces you to become personally involved with each of the characters. I have read many historical romances of this time-period and region, and find that one usually runs into the other after a while. Often when I try to remember a character that I particularly liked, I can't remember the book because unfortunately, one is very much like the other. This is not so with Kilgannon. I distinctly remember each character, the setting, and most of all, the emotion evoked from this very well-written book. I still get teary-eyed when I think of the heroine, Mary Lowell, cutting her husbands beautiful blonde hair so that it will not get in his eyes when he heads into battle. I lived in Scotland for many years and miss it very much now that I live in the States again. A book like this brings me back home again and reminds me why I love that proud and beautiful country. Great job Kathleen! I can't wait to read The Wild Rose of Kilgannon.

I was so absorbed in the story and the characters. I really could not put it down. The passion, adventure, and story line through this book will have you anxious and in need of the finish, which will keep you guessing until the last. After finishing the story I wanted more.
This is a must read and I have also bought her other books which are good but not to compare with this story.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. I love all things Scottish. This book helps you see why the Scots fought so hard for their own land and their own way of life. The characters are realistic, people you might actually meet if you lived in that time. The love between Mary and Alex is deep and true, not a happily-ever-after kind of fantasy, but real ups-and-downs, love-in- spite-of-disagreements type. Both Kilgannon books are wonderful. If you believe in love, read them.

I didn't love it. I thought the story was pretty good, but I was irritated buy the dialog. Page after page of no you don't, yes I do, no you don't, yes I do.... with every misunderstanding! Also, the Nook version needs some serious editing. on some pages the typos were so bad that I had a hard time following the story...

I loved Kilgannon and the follow up The Wild Rose of Kilgannon , they were beyond fabulous and I was sad when I read the last page today. I was taken in from page one and could not put either book down. What a beautiful love story set amongst the ravages of war. I will remember these books for a long time.

This book had me from page one and just got better. Reads like a historical autobography and draws you so you can feel what the characters are experiencing.

I love Scottish romance, however I also read ramance for 'happily everafter'. Ms. Givens has picked up the trick of the trade to sell books, leave them hanging. Unfortuneately, I've already purchased the second book. If it is left hanging, I will not buy the third. On a positive point, she writes in first person and does it well. But I was left with the feeling she was trying to imitate Gabaldon and failed if that was her attempt. I do not recommend this piece of work if you do not wish to get 'sucked in' to a drawn out series of books. There are better ways to sell books then Ms. Givens has chosen. If this is her way, she can sell her books elsewhere.
