I must say that I REALLY liked this book from beginning to end. The story line kept me very interested as did the characters. The love scenes were very sensual and very well done. I shed a few tears along the way but the story ended with the HEA that I always' crave.
I'm very glad that Connie Mason seems to be on track again. I have read almost ALL of her book's and have loved too many to c...more
If you love romance, suspense and the premise of an eye for an eye, then you are sure to love this book. The story line is one that you see time and again but don’t let that sway you, this book had me on the edge of my seat the complete time. The authors spun the tale so well you felt like you were in the scene with the characters. I screeched when the wolves attacked them, I cursed when Elspeth was hit with an arrow, I cried for Rob and the loss of his wife...more
Well, except when it comes to Lachlan Drummond, who stole his brand-new, love-match bride two weeks after the wedding, and whatever he did to her… well, let's just say she didn't want it to happen again. She was locked in a tower, with a window…
He went a little nuts (hence the nickname). And now he wants to even the score, he's challenged Drummond, but the man keeps ducking him. Which is why he shows up, horseback, in the church, to bride-nap Drummond's bride-to-...more
The characterizations were very simplistic but I really liked both the H and h. Lately I’ve been reading Highlander books with TSTL heroines so it was very refreshing to find a heroi...more
To start off, I really enjoyed this book. It was a refreshing, gloriously paced, savor-the-writing-in-your-mouth kind of read. It's something I would definitely recommend to fans of highlander books.

Okay, I’m going to be brutally honest. I was bored with Sins of the Highlander despite a kidnapping, wolf attack and siege. I was also slightly irritated with the heroine. She couldn’t seem to make up her mind about what she wanted out of life.
Elspeth begins the book as a young woman determined to be a good daughter. This means she is willing to enter in...more
From this point the story becomes, still continues to be interesting and exciting! I was impressed by the book's contents: the expressions, the myths and legends fro...more
