This is another book that my sister had "pestered" me to read for ages until I finally caved about 2 years ago. I didn't remember much about it anymore, which meant that I neither loved or hated it, so I decided to reread it this weekend and see whether I should become a Hannah Howell fan like my sister...

Sigimor Cameron, a Highland Laird, goes to England to help Peter Gerard, an Englishman who saved his life years ago. But when Sigimor and his clansmen arrive at Drumwich Castle, it's too late:

It was a great first book to Howell's 'Camerons' series.

Jolene, no matter how petite and delicate she looked, she gave back as good as she got - and then some. The more I read, the more proud of her I became. She made tough decisions, decisions I would never want to make. She had a backbone, didn't take crap from anyone, stood up for herself and listened to her common sense when arguing wouldn't solve anything. She is a female character one can admire without feeling guilty.

And Sigimor... (sigh)
This was a great book and begins a set (that does not need to be read in order) with the Cameron family. This is Sigimor's (the oldest) tale. He's been "in charge" of the massive family for years. He's a crazy Scot! Hunter, predator, but down to earth.

There are many books that follow this with other members of the Cameron family and Sigimor appears in and out of them. He's still a riot!

Ааааах Сигимор Сигимор, дълго го чаках, дочаках го и съм много доволна. От първата до последната страница не ме разочарова нито за миг. Беше сладък и забавен. Историята започва как Сигимор, заедно няколко от старите ни познайници отива на помощ на англичанина Питър Джерард, който някога му е спасил живота. За жалост се оказва, че пристига прекалено късно, Питър вече е убит, а Сигимор и хората му се оказват затворени в тъмница очакващи да бъдат обесени.
Тогава обаче на помощ им идва Джолийн Джерар

Ahhh this was a sublime reading experience for me! It's the second Hannah Howell novel that I've read, and I absolutely loved it! When I started reading reviews for Ms. Howell's various novels, so many reviewers compared her to Julie Garwood, who is my all time favorite author of Medieval and Highland romance novels. I didn't see any similarities in the first Howell novel I read, "Beauty and the Beast" and was a bit disappointed--although that was a really good read for me.

However, as soon as I

I loved Sigimor. A super tall, handsome, red haired highlander, with a sense of humor? How could i not? He wasn't your typical brooding, dark past, type of hero and I loved that. Sometimes i like a light-hearted hero.

Unfortunately, i didn't like Jolene. Now, i didn't out right hate her, she even started out ok... but as things started to progress she turned into that annoying, "im gonna think and do stupid things because of stupid reasons", getting people and herself into danger when she should

This is the first Hannah Howell book I've read and I didn't expect much. All I know is she has this Highland series and this book is the 10th. Her novels are stand-alone and characters may recur but the stories aren't intertwined as she mentioned in her website.

It was a light read with a decent plot, characters were well constructed and they gradually developed. I only gave it a four because I wasn't really riveted with the suspense, the hero and heroine running away from the antagonist, but sin

***BE ADVISED: I am a Hannah Howell fan de la ultimate. My opinion might be a tab bit one-sided.***

AUTHOR: Historical Romance author. Series is ongoing. Hannah Howell connects characters from one book to the other very smoothly

How dare he be a clan leader rescuing a Sassenach; bringing her from England into Scotland for protection. But okay, her cousin has killed her brother and wants to get it on with her. She is a threat and so is her brother's heir. Now READ!!!

OK, I'm rating many books in this series at 4, because I think they're above average, but they don't rank among my all-time favorites. That said, this one is probably my favorite so far in this series, entirely because of the hero, Sigimor Cameron. This is a guy who does not take life, or himself, too seriously. I've known and loved people like this guy, who love to poke you when you're down, just to make you mad instead of sad. LOL.

So here's the basic story: Sigimor and his companions rush to

Lady Jolene is a great heroine. She isn’t used to roughing it but doesn’t complain. She just puts on her big girl panties and deals with it all. I loved how selfless she is because she was willing to sacrifice love for her nephew. She is a tiny little thing but has no problem going toe to toe with Sigimor.

Sigimor is a very loyal man. He cares for his family deeply no matter how close they are related to him. While he didn’t have much of a choice to help Jolene, he went above and beyon

Another Howell romance in the Murray family series that doesn't actually involve a Murray. In fact, I don't think you even see a Murray in the book. Gillyanne might be mentioned a couple of times but the closest you get to her is Fiona and Nanty. This novel tells the story of Sigimor, Ewan's cousin and Ilsa's brother (and Liam and Gregor's cousin but their stories are told in novels that take place after this one). Howell once again brings up the woman from the past to make the female protagonis ...more

As I have liked the other books in the series, I was looking forward to reading this one. Especially to see where the author would go next. And although I liked it and found it an enjoyable read, it was only okay for me; and I did not think it was as good as some of the other books I have read in the series. Don't get me wrong, I loved Sigimor's character in the previous book, and was happy to see him get his HEA. I also loved the independence of the heroine. However, it was just missing somethi ...more
Dec 07, 2014 Annie rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
All of these books tend to feel the same. Kinda dumb and foolish heroines with heroes unable to say "I love you" unless the heroine says it first and sexual pasts that cause trouble for them. It's tiresome. And there are so many characters that it's hard to keep them all straight, though I don't really care that much to try. Most likely the last book of Ms. Howell's that I'll read.
Sigimor is a favorite character from many other books. His sense of humor is odd and he acts out in the strangest ways, but I really love him. That he ends up with an English lass who isn't the least bit afraid of him or willing to stay where he puts her is perfect.

The intrigue is silly and didn't do much for me, but their relationship was entertaining and fun to read about.

Sir Sigimor Cameron the oldest of 14 boys and 1 girl. I have really enjoyed Hannah Howells Highlander series and it doesn't matter what order you read them in. Just read them as they interest you.

Jolene rescues Sigimor and several of his men from a dungeon in a castle in England. Jolene is an English lass, small in stature with fair skin and dark hair. Sigimor has always been attractive to more buxom and tall women. He is well over 6 feet, but he soon learns he desires this pretty English rose,

I really enjoyed the first of this series. The main characters were both interesting and fun. Serious trials they had to overcome but this book still held romance and even some great humor. Looking forward to continuing the next in the Cameron legacy.

muy divertido y con las ocurrencias de Sigimor .... la pobre de Jolene no sabe si agarrarlo a besos o golpearlo con lo que tenga mas cerca.

Found this book in the library. I didn't realize that this book is part of a 19-book series but I really enjoyed the book anyway. The family tree is a little confusing for me since I haven't read any of the other books yet. Jolene and Sigimor are great characters but not as developed as I would like. I felt myself wanting to know more about the characters. With that being said, I really enjoyed the plot line in this book. The chase between Jolene/Sigimor and Harold kept things interesting and th ...more

Un libro apasionante, como casi todos los de los highlander. Me encantó Sigimor y sus hermanos. Por supuesto me seguiré leyendo el resto de la saga. Promete.
I enjoy these books but they are eminently forgettable. After reading them, I don't remember the book. Howell has one formula plot and varies it enough to be worth reading, but not worth reading twice. In this one, Jolene is hiding in her own home fortress with her toddler nephew, after a relative poisoned the boy's father and attempted to take over the keep. Before his death, Jolene's brother asked the Cameron's for help but they arrived too late and were imprisoned in the dungeon.
