Picked this up because it was at the local (UK) library and I recognized the author's name.

I couldn't finish it because it uses the lack-of-communication plot device to keep the hero and heroine apart. Duncan was in love with and engaged to Isabel. She left him a week before their wedding to supposedly become the mistress of an earl. He hates her because of this, but promises her brother to save her when she's thrown into the dungeon for aiding William Wallace (who is forever Mel Gibson in my mi

Through the wonderful world of Facebook, I learned of Ms. Cosby’s MacGruder Brother series. Her websites boasts ‘Romance Edged With Danger’ and I must say like her daring Highlanders, Ms. Cosby delivers full force.

His Woman is the second book in the MacGruder Brother series. Ms. Cosby weaves captivating Scottish history and an alluring epic romance story into a powerful, page-turning ma
I didn't realize this was the second book featuring the MacGruders. I should have done my homework better. And I have the first one hidden in my room somewhere! Humph. Though I didn't realize it until after I read it, so I guess they don't need to be read in order. Anyhow....I loved this book. This is the first I've read by Cosby, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Duncan had been betrayed by Isabel in the past, but had never gotten over it. Isabel had her reasons - good reasons! - but she could not t ...more
I liked the book and had to start with #2 since #1 isn't in ebook format for my reader. In a way I'm disappointed but also there is a certain...formula. Each female gets placed in the same room and that's how they can tell they're supposed to be with the guy. There is magic but it's not really explained much, just that it is there. So they're not true historical paranormal romances but there is a paranormal vibe that is used to put the people together. Otherwise they're just regular people. I th ...more
No complaints. No real highs either. It wasnʻt a bad book, just not terribly exciting either.

This is my favorite of the MacGruder brothers so far. The backstory between the two allowed the fiery bond between the hero and heroine to be multi-leveled, delving beyond pure sensuality - though there's plenty of that to enjoy.
I also love that Diana embroils enough historical tidbits about the Scottish rebels to make this genre fresh and authentic - there are a lot of men in kilts books out there. That said, I will continue to read and really enjoy D. Cosby's highland rebels. They're highly en
Diana Cosby writes beautiful love stories set in historical settings. This series is three brothers who find their true loves while fighting for Scotland’s freedom. With a touch of passion, love and magic it has all the components I love in a good read. I highly recommend the series and don't worry you don't need to read them in order to enjoy the series, each one is a stand alone great book.

Good story, written around the time of William Wallace and his famous conflict with Edward Longshanks. Given that we do know how that story ended, some of the hopes and expectations of the characters are particularly poignant. It's good too, the way the author created a natural conflict between the characters that, though it should've been easily solved, was understandably allowed to fester far too long.
This was a story that I wanted to really love but lacked something. It is set in Scotland in the 1200's, during the rebels bid for freedom from England, led by William Wallace. (Forever known to me as Mel Gibson from Braveheart) The story started to lagg for me half way through but picked up again near the end. It was just okay for me. Not the best and not the worst
Each book in this series is similar but different. The author pulls you into each plot by weaving a scene that makes you feel that you are there. They are page turners that hold my interest. I like a strong male and female lead.
This book was good although towards the end I found I started skimming through the pages to finish. I will still read the rest of the series though as the books are good.

Most people think of retirement as a time to relax. For me, retiring at 36 from my job as a Navy Chief Meteorologist/ Oceanographer allowed me to pursue my passion—writing romance novels. With 29 moves behind me and having traveled through many more countries, I was anxious to create characters who reflected the amazing cultures and people I’ve met over the years.

I’ve written ten novels to date.
