Jillian Hunter creates very complex characters for the hero and heroine, accompanied by multiple secondary characters including a pair of ghosts. It is busier than a Shakespeare comedy with the minor characters providing diversions, creating scenes and generally carrying the lovers towards a satisfying ending. The heroine is a reluctant magician with a colorful family and clan connections. The dark brooding warrior finds love and happiness upon multiple confrontations with the heroine. Rather ...more
This book was hilarious! I laughed all through it. There is abit of paranormal in this Scottish historical, too.
Loved the falcon! Nice, gentle romance.

This is my first time reading a novel by Jillian Hunter. This is an older book within her collection that was given to me by a friend when I attended RomCon in 2010. It’s a relatively quick read for the size book that it is, and it’s historical, if that’s your pleasure. Plus, there are men in kilts, which is always a good thing.

Duncan MacElgin is a soldier returning to his home in Scotland after serving in the military for a number of years. He’s a reluctant chieftain for a bumbling clan in a cr

This was like picking back up with an old friend. It's sat on my keeper shelves since '98 and kept begging me to pick it back up and revisit this story that touched my heart so many years ago. When I would think of this story over the years, one thing kept coming to mind and that was laughter... chickens...a woman who was such a free spirited lass and a man who was continually trying to keep up with her and keep his sanity in tact. HUGE smiles here.

Duncan has life long scars that haunt him each

"Fairy Tale" by Jillian Hunter was a fairly enjoyable historical romance with comic and fantasy elements. It seemed to struggle with knowing what it was and the plot and characters kept taking rather strange turns. I've read other books by Jillian Hunter and I will probably read more, but I don't think I would recommend this book because there are so many other really great romance novels.

My sister bought this book for a thrift store. So my sister finish reading the book and about to throw away the book. I asked my sister if i can have the book. And I read the book and I just thought the book was ok but I will be reading it again because it have been a long time since I last read the book.

It was just... okay. I don't think it was written very well, there were a lot of spelling errors that took me out of the story. The story itself seemed to drag on and I found myself skimming through pages and skipping parts all together.
Her books usually only take me about a couple of hours to read but I had the hardest time getting into this one. I had to keep putting it down as it just felt boring to me. Also Jamie talking about himself in the third person was quite annoying.

I really did not like this. I read it because of a good newspaper review, but it was just a tiny virgin story with an especially dense hero.
