Dialogue is written in Scottish "dialect". Ach, nay! I canna tell ye how it pained me! I willna suggest it to anybody, as I found it verra annoying. I suspicion that it will be found pleasin' to those whose hearts trip a little faster around kilts, though I canna remember a single mon wearin' one.

Ach, aye! Toss it in yon bonnie bankes and yon bonnie braes!

Wasn't so crazy about this book. I was really tempted to skip parts cause it just got soooo redundant and dragged out. It was hard to finish. I felt the same conversations were brought up over and over and it took forever to draw to a conclusion. I felt the back drop of the story was kind of convoluted and the hero and heroines 'misunderstanding' of each other just got to be really tiring and idiotic. The author managed to make both of them come off so oblivious and stupid at parts by dragging o ...more

I love the Murray stories and this one doesn't disappoint. Can read in any order as all are stand alone stories which I like. I'm slowly working my way through the lot of them :)
Lucas Murray (Artan's twin brother) has fallen in love with Katerina Haldane, until he is brutally attacked and told it is at her direction. He literally crawls from the area an eventually his brother finds him and brings him back home to heal. What Lucas does not know is that Katerina was also attacked and thought dead. He returns when he is strong enough, and finds her in hiding from her half sister, who actually instigated the violence against them both. He accuses her of ordering the beating ...more
After a year of recovering from grievous injuries, Lucas Murray returns for revenge on the one he thinks responsible: Katerina, his true love.

This was a darker book, with insidious plots and perceived betrayals. The undercurrent of betrayal lurked throughout, causing many issues with Katerina and Lucas. Like Highland Barbarian, the climax comes fairly early, leaving a good portion of the book to deal with cleaning up the emotional messes. They are a great couple, however, after the first 100 pag

Great character, interesting story line, and entertaining.

Usually love this series but this book I didn't like a lot. I really liked the female lead but there was something missing when I read the book to get engaged and invested in their love interest. It's weird because I really love this series. I have read so many of the other books and had no trouble with them at all. Anyways this series is great so I won't stop reading just because of this one book but if you're only looking for a single book to read from the series don't choose this one!
One mistaken look caused a lot of pain for both Lucas and Katerina. We spend much of the story waiting for Lucas to figure out the truth and then wait for Katerina to stop being bull-headed. A great match these two make. For the most part, I enjoyed the book. However, it seemed to take them forever to work their problems out. There was a lot of action and it made the story go by fast. All in all, not a bad read.
I think I have read one too many books where the hero is tongue-tied around the heroine, and everyone is afraid of his/her own shadow. The story was different, but just not believable even for a romance, where most rules fly out the door. If you want the whole series, it's worth reading. If you need to skip one or two, put this one on the "skip" list.
Lucas Murray is one of my favorites in the family, which is why i rated it the way i did. He seemed 'out of character' in this book though. I expected more witty remarks and a bit more arrogance from him than there was. The story seemed to drag on and even went in circles at times. Even with all that said, I still LOVE the series.

I did it again ... I had such high hopes for this story after reading a teaser from Artan's tale. It was a nice story - but not gripping or heart-wrenching or sigh- or weepiness-inducing. Perhaps I'll take a break from Ms. Howell for now.

3.5 stars. Pretty cute book. A little too long with the hiding part. And the romance between Lucas and Katerina didn't gel until the end of the book but overall a really good book.
i am glad i read this straight after "highland barbarian" it is a totally different story , but because the two heroes are twins it completes the stories better.
This book just dragged for me. I was alittle more than 3/4 finished, and didn't care anything about the characters. I ended up never picking it up again to finish.

I hated this book. The book just drags, and the author spends so much time explaining even the obvious. I will never read another book by this author!

Overall, a sweet story and easy read w/ Howell's typical humor, romance, and plot twits. Would def recommend this book and the series to other readers.

It was the typical highland warrior romance. It was a good, quick read but not a keeper.
Book was a little slow to me. Didn't enjoy it as much as the others in the series.
Hannah Howell is a talented Author who consistently delivers a great story!
