I absolutely loved this story!! When I saw that Grace was the heroine of this story, I had to wonder what McCollum would do with her. We met Grace in the first book of the series, The Beast of Aros Castle, and I wondered how the story would play out because Grace had been kind of a weak persona in that story having been poorly treated by her step-brother. But her time in Scotland had made her into much stronger person and I fell in love with her!! She definitely needed to have a strong personality to stand up to the Devil of Dunakin Castle! Keir... he just broke my heart! You could tell that he didn't want his role as the Devil to be the only thing about him that people saw and it wasn't until Grace that someone did. I just loved the two of them together!! I've really loved this series and I hope that McCollum is not done with it!!

The Devil of Dunakin Castle by Heather McCollum is Book Four in the "Highland Isles" series. This is the story of Grace Ellington and Keir MacKinnon. I have read all the books in this series (and LOVED THEM!) but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Grace is the daughter of the Earl of Somerset and has inherited an Estate down in York England but she prefers to live at a cottage on the edge of Aros village near her half sister Ava. Grace has taken to learning to heal people and with that comes some independence. But between the village people, her sister and even the blacksmith Thomas thinks she should give in to her suitors like Gavin and marry. But Grace wants more than that. Grace is looking to overcome some of her fears and go on an adventure. Also Grace would like the passion she sees with her sister Ava and her husband along with Mairi and her husband. Grace decided to travel to help Mairi with the birth of her child. Thomas elected to escort her there but along the way he started getting sick and when they stopped in a Village, Grace went to get something to help Thomas she meets Keir. Keir is traveling to find the famous healer to help his sick nephew. Keir is the youngest brother of the Chief of the Mackinnon clan on the Isle of Skye. Keir is a strong man who brings discipline to his clan members and fear in his enemies. But he does stop to help Grace when she is trapped by wolves but get hurt in the end. So Grace helps to heal him which gets Keir to thinking that she could help his nephew and he will bring a healer to his nephew by any means possible. I am so happy to read Grace and Keir story, it just added a little more love I have for this seires!

Oh, what a fun, passion-filled book! The Devil of Dunakin Castle is book four in Heather McCollum’s Highland Isles series. I’ve come to expect lots of passion and intrigue, danger and romance, and this book highlights Ms. McCollum’s talent for sweeping readers away into the rugged highlands. I highly recommend this book. Grace Ellington wants to prove herself, and she decides to help her friend during childbirth. Along the way, however, a snow storm sweeps in and brings her right to the door of a scarred highlander. Keir MacKinnon was given the duty of finding a healer for his sick nephew, no matter the cost. When one falls right into his lap, he doesn’t know whether it’s a curse or a blessing. These two were spectacular together. I could feel the sparks and was instantly enthralled into their story. So, right off the bat we have two different people trapped together. Grace, a gentle healer looking for adventure, and The Devil of Dunakin Castle who has seen enough bloodshed and adventure to last a lifetime. And yet, Grace keeps the devil on his toes, so to speak. There were some parts where I had to grin ear-to-ear cute! But then Grace would do something to bring the heat and then it would boil over, and dang...was this journey just completely epic and parts downright romantic. That’s before another side plot opens up and everything gets so complicated. Keir has scars on top of scars. He's called the Devil for a reason, and the etchings on his soul present one problem after another. He doesn't know quite how to take the saucy, but sometimes angelic Grace who begs to differ. The dialogue crackles, and the tension snaps like a rubber band. I think I held my breath throughout the entire book. Anyone who loves a good highland romance will definitely find something to satisfy here. 4.5 stars!

I loved this highlander read! Grace wants people to stop meddling and realize she doesn’t need to marry this very minute. She decides to escape by heading north to help with a childbirth. Keir is the younger brother to the clan chief and a warrior, Grace and Keir end up trapped in a blizzard together and with Keir realizes that Grace is a healer he kidnaps her in hopes she can heal is nephew. The story is fast-paced with lots of drama. The characters are great and the chemistry is intense and off the charts steamy. A loved it!

I loved it. It's an amazing adventurous read. I think the story is quite thrilling with a hint of mystery. Grace is a lovable character, she is courageous, funny, and has the habit of saying whatever is on her mind. Keir is not bad either. He is living behind the mask of "Devil of Dunakin" but have a kind side which only his closest friend sees, and now Grace can too. Keir saves Grace from wolves and then she saves him from dying. They both feel attracted to each other but there are things that Grace doesn't know about him. To her it's just a grand adventure. To Keir it's a mission to save his nephew. I liked how the story unfolded, not to mention all the characters. Romance part is also quite interesting, both Grace and Keir have explosive chemistry which made it all the more fun to read. I definitely recommend this book if you like historical fiction.

The Devil of Dunakin Castle by Heather McCollum Highland Isles #4 Grace Ellington and Keir McKinnon meet when he saves her from voracious animals in the midst of a snowstorm. She returns the favor by healing his wounds from that battle only to have him kidnap her and take her to the Isle of Skye to heal his ill nephew. Keir is “The Devil of Dunakin Castle” raised to put fear into all for the heartless horrible deeds he visits on all but usually at the bequest of his chieftain – or perhaps he does what he does just because of who and what he is. As Grace gets to know Keir she sees another side of him, cares for him and wants more from him that he believes is possible. As the two do their best to thwart evil, try to heal the ill will and people around them and find comfort in one another they both wonder if perhaps…just perhaps…there might be a future for them together. This book made me feel, care and want. I loved the way the backstory of the characters unfolded. I came away wishing the book had not ended and wanting to know what happens to more than one of the characters in the future so am hopeful there will be another book soon in this series. Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

This was the first book I have read by this author, but will definitely not be the last. This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone book. Englishwoman, Grace Ellington, has made a home for herself in Scotland. She has honed her skills and become proficient in defending herself but yearns for adventure. Everyone seems to be trying to get her married off, so to get away, she sets out to help a friend who is about to go into childbirth. On her way, she gets caught in a blizzard and ends up saving a a warrior, Keir MacKinnon. Keir , called the Devil of Dunakin, is known as one of the strongest warriors of his clan (or always has been until he meets Grace!) Grace is in trouble and becomes lost and in need of rescue but in trying to help her, Keir is knocked unconscious and Grace ends up saving him! They get to a deserted cabin nearby and Grace takes care of the warrior until he wakens. Needless to say, they become attracted to each other in such close quarters, how could they not? Keir ends up taking Grace to his home so that she can heal his deathly ill nephew. Along the way, they get to know each other and Grace becomes upset at how it seems his clan treats Keir Arriving at the castle, Grace is shocked to find out what is making the nephew ill. Secrets, mystery and intrigue are all woven together and a killer is on the loose. Can Grace and Keir find out what is happening before it is too late? The author is a master at making the characters come alive and keeping you turning the pages as fast as you can. The descriptions and emotions are deep and have you guessing until the end. This is a wonderful story that should not be missed!
