Preview — Only With a Highlander by Janet Chapman
Only With a Highlander (Pine Creek Highlanders #5)
As soon as Pine Creek's new mystery man steps into her art gallery, Winter MacKeage is intrigued. This sexy stranger, Matt Gregor, wants her to do some drawings of his dream house. And with his tiger-gold eyes and masculine charm, he's impossible to resist. But so is Winter's Scottish heritage. As the seventh MacKeage...more
This series is still going strong for me 5 books in, despite the fact that the focus is no longer on the original Scottish warriors, but rather their adult children. Although this book takes place exclusively in the modern day, there is still a strong paranormal focus, mostly centred around magic and time-travel.
Winter MacKeage, 7th daughter of Laird Greylan MacKeage, is the reason why most of the events of the previous four books occurred. It was her birth that was foretold in the prop ...more
This story is full of interesting, richly written characters. I enjoyed the verbal banter as well as the building of the tension between the two main characters and with the family members. There is humor in abundance as well as a finely crafted storyline. Several different mysteries pop up through the book and will all come together in the end ...more
Sooo... Winter, the seventh daughter of the seventh daughter of the seventh son, meets a hottie highlander who happens to walk into her gallery. She ...more
I must at least say this book aced the features I most look for in a novel:
Credibility in characters: (I should 'feel them'. Their emotions and reactions as well as the plot must fit the person. I should forget its fiction.
Pace: Don't put me to sleep waiting for something to happe ...more
Matt, the male lead of the story, it is captivating how confident he holds himself and yet on the other ha ...more
The main character, Winter, is supposedly 25 years old, the youngest of 7 girls and has lived away at college. Her parents are very strong characters who have exposed their daughters to a wide variety things in life. Her emotional maturity was more in line with a 16 - 18 year old. The story would have been better with Winter being less naive and insecure.
I would liked to have them both kill the druid but heck we cannot have everything LOL
the 4 stars are because of Tom... I didn't like it the ending so much.
Onto the next one!
We skip ahead from Book 4 (Robbie's story) to Winter's story... We know from Book 1 that Daar (Pendaar) needed to bring Greyland MacKeage forward in time from the 13th century so that he could find his true "mate" in Grace Sutter. Daar knows that their 7th daughter (all daughters born around the winter solstice) is to be his druid replacement -- that he is to teach her how to use her magic to keep their clans alive and healthy. But Daar has always maintained that Winter won't come into ...more
The heroine is Winter MacKeage, the seventh daughter of Grey and Grace MacKeage (whose story was told in the first nove ...more
The last three chapters are just weird. A little convaluted and TOOOO easy of an ending. The conflict that started up several books before ends in a nice package of ho hummness. Not that I was wanting major conflict in a romance novel. The conclusion just came so fast it felt rushed and put i ...more
And then you realize the author managed to hoist herself from her own petard with the timeline...again. This is some 37 years after the original 10 TT'ed, as was noted in the book. In the first book, supposedly the H/h met in 2003 or so. And yet... there's no sign that technology has ad ...more
Light and frothy - for me it was just okay. 24-year-old Winter McKeage meets Matt Gregor and is struck speechless at his gorgeousness. After two weeks, she knows that she loves him with every fiber of her being.
While wizards, druids and magic are mentioned throughout the book, none of that is really displayed as a part of the story.
