How far will he go to belong?

Fierce, famed Highland warrior Broch MacLeod has always been a bastard—until one day he isn't. And now that he's discovered his real family, he intends to do whatever it takes to carve a place for himself in it, including wedding the lass known as the Hellion of the Highlands.

What will she do for vengeance?

When strong-willed, independent Katreine Kinntoch is forced to wed her sworn enemy's son, she vows never to surrender her body or heart to the wickedly handsome, too-cocky Scot. Instead, she intends to make him dislike her so much that he'll gladly send her back to her home.
How long will it take them to see they are each other's only hope?

Danger and treachery unexpectedly bring Broch and Katreine closer, but can they trust each other enough to choose love over the ties that bind and the revenge that burns all around them?

Broch McLeod, the King’s Right Hand, has been tasked to find Katreine Kinntoch and see that she is married to Lord Blackswell’s heir, Brodee. The Kinntochs and the Blackswells are sworn enemies. There is a land dispute between them, but the more important reason for the feud is that Katreine and her family believe Brodee murdered her older sister who was his betrothed. No sooner has Broch found her and rescued her from a band of thugs sent by the Blackswell to find her, he found out that the nickname Hellion of the Highlands was deserved. Getting her back home included chasing her through rough water, battling a pack of wolves, and spending a night in a cold cave – not exactly the way or place to begin to fall in love. When Broch goes to the Blackswells, he does not find answers to the raiding on Kinntoch lands or the murders, but he learns who he really is. He returns to tell the Kinntochs Katreine must marry the Blackswell heir, but she won’t be marrying Brodee. Who is the Heir (any guesses)? Who is Broch? Who murdered Brodee’s betrothed and his mistress? Is there an HEA in here somewhere? This is such an exciting story, a fast-paced unpredictable Highland Adventure. There’s danger, murder, suspense, and a good dose of humor. Broch is a warrior through and through, tough, brave, protective, and loyal. He has a tender side, too, but he doesn’t show that to everyone. Feisty is not a strong enough word to describe Katreine. She is petite and beautiful, and fierce, courageous, determined, and loyal. She rarely shows her tender side to anyone. The interaction between these two is humorous, entertaining, and poignant. William was hilarious, kind of like a sidekick to a super hero. Julie has another winner with this one. The latest story in the Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts Series is not to be missed. I think it might be my favorite in the series.

Be still my heart. Oh yes, needless to say, Julie Johstone has outdone herself again! She is a master at at creating a tale with an enthralling, fast paced storyline that will not let you go until you turn the last page. Even then I wanted to go back and read a few parts! Thought a bastard, Broch had fought his whole life to prove himself. He is sent by King David to find the fiesty Katheine, who is know as the Hellion of the Highlands (yep and she is that!). He is to make sure she marries Brodee Blackswell which will help join their clans. But what he finds is something he cannot tolerate and finds out some truths about the Blackswell clan. He ends up being wed to her himself and the action begins!! Humorous at times with a mystery, murder and some wonderful moments between the two. The characters come alive with some amazing secondary characters that hopefully will appear in future stories plus a cat names Sheba!! What more can you ask for? I highly recommend this latest installment in the Highlander Vows series. Although it can be read as a standalone, I urge you to read the entire series! Lori Dykes

When A Highlander Weds a Hellion is book 8 in the Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series by Julie Johnstone. I have enjoyed every one of these books. They can be read as stand alone works, but they are so much better in a series. The richness of the characters is better tracked in reading them in order. I liked this book, but it wasn’t my favorite in the series. Outlaw still holds that place quite firmly. I did like the hero Broch MacLeod. But I wasn’t a huge fan of the heroine Katriene. I grow weary of “strong Scottish females” who actually are just stubborn, misguided and needy. Overall a good book with complex characters and some twists and turns that I didn’t expect. Johnstone is one of those talented authors that I follow without hesitation. I was gifted a copy of this book.

I liked the character development of who Katreine is becoming, and how she is shaped by her family’s tragedy. Her family harbors hatred, presumptions and prejudice against another clan, for good reason. They killed her sister. When she finds herself married into the said clan, she relies on her past beliefs only to find they may be wrong and struggles to change what has been her reality for so long. Broch MacLeod is an amazing hero. He is where he is today, right-hand to the King because he needed to prove his worth, more to himself than others. In a land where clan is family, he knows not who fathered him. He must be a bastard. He recognizes the same determination and powerful need of Brodie, son of the Blackswell laird, to prove himself, disguised in belligerency. Brodie is an interesting character. I hope Johnstone writes his story. Broch’s present mission is to bring together two clans, filled with animosity for each other, by marriage. Broch follows orders, but not blindly, even when destiny changes his life. He is a fair and just man. His run-in (literal) with the hellion Katreine, the woman who must marry into the Blackswell clan, not only garners his admiration but interest. He hears her pleas and vows to respect them before he enforces the king’s command. In his search for her protection, he finds his own destiny and discovers the truth of Katreine’s sister’s death. The story from its inception had my attention, dialogue carried the plot forward with character actions making this story a page-turner. If you enjoy braw Highlander men, women who can defend themselves and the bond and strength of family, shrouded in a hard-won love, author Julie Johnstone’s story is spot-on.

As an avid reader of this series I waited a long time for Broch to have his story. He started out as a secondary character who grew throughout the books, almost like he was calling out for his HEA. Thankfully Julie heard him and has written a story worthy of him and as always given him a heroine who is bold, fierce and brave. Broch has spent his life trying to prove his worth not realizing he is worthy, he has also been searching for a sense of belonging. In this book his mission for the King takes him to a place he never thought he would find. Katreine, our fearless heroine is determined not to marry the man she blames for the death of her sister and forever be tied to the family she hates. Enter our cocky hero, as you can imagine sparks fly instantly between these two. Together they fight to find the truth while resisting their attraction to one another. Ultimately the truth is revealed and love wins out. What makes Julie’s stories so good is that although they are set in medieval times her characters are believable and you become immersed in their lives. Her females characters are always strong, independent women who may want love but lose nothing of themselves in the process, which is so true of us Scots. I love her use of language and attention to detail. I cannot recommend her series enough. Even if this is your first read you will enjoy it and want to go back and read them all.
