I think this was my favorite of the series. This was really interesting and i could really relate well to the character. And i love Iain!


Wings of Morning is a fantastic book for any time. It is a Christian book, but most importantly a touching story.
Scottish heiress Regan MacLaren was married for a day before she lost her husband. Her husband’s brother, Walter, claims that he was shot by Iain Campbell. As a result, Walter plans revenge and the way he will gain it is by shooting Iain. Just after

I found it was predictable, and also because of that reason it was boring.(view spoiler) The mystery was okay.(view spoiler) But there didn't seem to be enough action and the main character tended to droan on and on about how she felt to the point where you wanted to slap her and say, "shut up woman, ...more

I liked the first book of the series but this book was even better. It kept me riveted to the pages with its page-turning action and plot. Loved it..

This was really more 4.5 stars. I didn't get pulled into the story until near the end.

The story begins two years after the events in Child of the Mist. The story focuses on Regan, a Drummond woman who grew up in the MacLaren clan's home after her parents left her there - and then died while away. Regan married Roderick MacLaren, but after a rough beginning to their wedding night, she fought him, he fell asleep from drinking, and she hid. Roddy tried to find her, but failing to, left on his wedd

Sadly, I didn't like this one as much as the first. It's a stand alone, but with the same characters from the last novel. The language was very much the same. A lot of awkward Scottish jibber which got old fast. Iain didn't feel like the same character as he did in the first book though it was good to hear his story and get his happy ending. I skimmed the last 100 pages of this book just to finish. Oh well. I have the last in this series ready to read, but after this one, I'm not sure I even wan ...more

As a fan of Kathleen Morgan's writing, I didn't think this was nearly as good as book 1 but it still had plenty of adventure, villains, and a remarkably patient hero. I thought Regan was too mixed up most of the time, flip flopping between believing creepy Walter and her husband. I enjoyed the backdrop of the story and the time period. The story was pretty predictable but not boring. I thought there was more religion than romance.

I loved Wings of Morning from cover to page to chapter through the entire book. Kathleen Morgan's best written novel yet! It's full of mystery, adventure, hope, passion, commitment and God's grace.

The story begins with a lovely and spirited young woman, Regan MacLauren whose husband is suddenly and mysteriously murdered. The plot thickens when lightening scares Regan's horse and she hits her head on a rock during the storm. She awakes in the home of the laird and warrior Iain Campbell, but she

Such a good book. It took me two weeks because school started and I had to go back to work. Easily done in a day if I had found this book before work started back up. Such good storytelling. And, I really liked the Scottish history backdrop. Very well done!

A great Christain story. I read Ms. Morgan first Highland book a while ago and after reading this story I remember why I enjoyed so much. It is a simple story of faith in God. No bells and whistle just people up against tough times in life and love. And them relying on their faith in their Lord for forgiveness and strengthen to overcome troubles. It was a great reminder for me.

I really enjoyed the second book in These Highland Hills series- in fact I enjoyed this even more than the first! After reading Child of the Mist I desperately wanted to find out more of the handsome, wonderful Iain Campbell! (I am a sucker for a sexy Scotsman) At times I felt the book to be a bit to preachy- But I have come to expect that in Kathleen Morgan's books, after all they do also fall into the category of christian romance. I continue to read her novels because of the rich details, her ...more

Thoroughly enjoying my journey in 1564 - 1568 Scotland in the Highlands Hills series by Kathleen Morgan. The characters, romance, and suspense are very compelling.

If Child of the Mist moved a bit slowly at first, this one takes off and doesn't slow down! Morgan tells another story of love and betrayal, and the book takes some unexpected twists and turns. I absolutely fell in love with Iain as I was reading. This is a very good read as well, and Morgan's highly effective storytelling makes it all the more interesting. Her characterization in this one is also great, making the characters seem to come alive on the page--a truly difficult thing to achieve. I ...more

I really liked the first book in the series, but wasn't as impressed with this one. I loved the character of Iain, but thought that Regan needed to redeem herself a little bit more after what she did. One thing I will give the author is that she doesn't recycle story lines. All three of the books in the series have completely different characters with completely different motives. One of the redeeming points of this book is the religious feelings of the characters and how frequently they express ...more

I loved this book! I was able to get passed any of the small things I didn't like because the plot and history it brings with it is just great to read. Iain was so amazing to read about, too bad there is no such guy in the real world, but Kathleen Morgan really brings him to life as she does the other characters and the story. It is an easy read and I would probably have finished it in a day if I wasn't so busy!

4.5/5 stars
This, the second book, was a bit slower to start, but quickly picked up the pace. It was far less predictable than the first, but still had many edge-of-seat moments that left me wondering, "What now?" I should mentiong that this series is a Christian series, full of religious talk, which was great. Especially because that leads to a great romance that is clean.

I was a tad apprehensive to start reading this book, the reason being, I loved book one so much I didn't want this one to not live up the first. It was just as good! I'm holding off from reading the last in the series for now, and have started reading Kathleen's other series. Overall this one would be highly recommended, captures you just as much as book one.

This story is one of my all time favorites. I got sucked in and couldn't put it down. There's just something about it that obscures the pesky annoyances that (unfortunately) this book still has. It's not the most well written book but the writing is above average and the story compelling. I love it and hope to read it many more times.

Took a while to get into the language. A fairly solid Christian theme throughout. I didn't realize it was a Christian book. However, this did not detract from a good little read. Not one to flip through, otherwise you may miss some of the more intriguing character personalities. A good little read.

I loved the first book, but wasn't as impressed with this one. I really liked the character Iain in the first one and was excited to read his story. However it fell really flat for me and I didn't like his love interest at all. It was an ok read but a little disappointing.
