Make that 4.5. Once again Debbie Mazzuca has written a story that I truly enjoyed. I'm surprise more people are not reading her book's here at goodreads.

This story held my interest right from the start. It had a bit more heat in it than Lord Of The Isle did. This is a series but you can read this as a stand alone with no problem. This book also had paranormal elements to it which I thought added to the story. It had some OH NO moments, made me cry at times and oh my what a fantastic HEA ending t

Aiden MacLeod’s half-brother Lachlan was born half fae. Aiden has spent most of the boy’s life protecting him from Aiden’s father who wanted to kill Lachlan when he was born. After one attempt on Lachlan’s life, his father falls off a cliff and dies.

When Princess Syrena’s father is murdered and then comes to her in a vision, he tells her of his half-fae son born in the human realm. She is to bring him back to the Enchanted Isles and make him his successor. Vowing to avenge her father’s death an

A Fae princess on a quest in the Highlands looking for her half-mortal brother (Fae father, Mortal mother) and falls in love with his older full-Mortal Highlander brother.

At first, innocent and clumsy, she then takes a turn in the middle of the book and becomes a warrior princess with the help of a Merlin-like wizard and a magical sword.

Ok read but I feel the storyline is just a tad all over the place.

This is the way Highlander's are done! There may only be on Karen Marie Moning but she has put down her pen and left the Highlands so a girl must look elsewhere for the needed fix. Debbie Mazzuca is a fix and more.

I loved everything about Aiden and Syrena's lovestory -- kilts, swords, magic, fae, and rich, thick brogue. Did I mention there is hot sex too. It's not perfect but it's so close that I didn't have the heart to take off a star for the one or two irks I found. Aiden is a clan leader who

2.75 - 3 Stars

After meeting Aidan in book one, I was very excited to read his book. I was a bit disappointed and didn't really care for all of the magical part of the story. I felt like Aidan was ripped off from having a great story. I do recognize he needed to have some Fae aspect added to his story due to Lachlan, however, I really didn't like how it played out. I didn't like some part of the epilogue either when he's bedding his wife.

What I did like about the story
1. The humor
2. Rory, Callum

I have read a few historical highlander books over the years, not enough to be an expert, but enough to know what I like with my Highlanders. Debbie Mazzuca hits the mark with Warrior of the Isles. I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end and I couldn’t put it down.

In this story we have two main characters: Syrena a Fae Princess and Aidan a Scottish Laird/Warrior. Syrena is basically from Fae (another place) and after things that happen in the beginning of the book she’s forced to go to

Loved this book, it was just as wonderful as the first one if not more. I can say one thing, Debbie knows how to write suspense. I was intrigued from the beginning learning that Syrena is Princess and what all that entails, and then the twist at the end was perfect. I loved reading more about Aidan, and Lan, as well as Rory Ali and the rest of the gang, I am anxious to read more about them in the third book. I was completely into the Fae aspect that was much more present considering Syrena is Fa ...more

What a great read! I thought I would've missed Rory but Aidan MacLeod and Princess Syrena took over in no time. As Aidan forced to deal with his hatred for Fae, he found out his brother, Lan, is half-fae, the love of his life, Syrena, a Fae princess. As a warrior with the responsibility to protect and serve his clan, his mind overrode his heart, even though everyone else saw the truth.

I loved the chemistry among the characters, especially Rory's twin boys. They were a joy and added so

"Once I adjusted to the old Scottish dialect, this read was a heart stopper. It has all the elements I look for in a book: A wonderful love story that makes you angry, happy, weepy, and all down right warm, and fuzzy inside. With strong, passionate, and dutiful characters; what more could a hopeless romantic ask for!"

Laird Aiden Macload & Syrena the Fae Princess....This seemed really long. Full of adventure and getting over long held prejudice Mortal/Fae issues. This goes with her other book Lord of the Isle a time-travel with Allienne (Ali) and Rory who are also in this book.

Not as good as the first book. Syrena is really annoying, had higher hopes for Aidan. It's one thing to have the Fae play background to the book (like in Lord of the Isles), but when ones comes out and plays, I'm not really into it. Syrena is too weak for me and not the "oh the poor girl" kind of weak, the kind of girl you just want to smack upside the head and tell her to get over it.

Really, don't think I can continue. After the deep hatred Lan has for everything and everyone Fae, he forgives S

I have mixed feelings about this book. I was hoping it was as good as the first, Lord of the Isles. I felt Aidan was too hard on Syrena and allowed his hatred of the fae to cloud his judgement too much. I also felt the love story took a back seat to everything else going on. I loved the first half. The love was beginning to develop then, I almost stopped reading about half-way through when (view spoiler) ...more

This was the second novel of the series I have read. Very good, great characters and lots of love between the two main characters.
Syrena is treated unfairly a lot! She starts out as a weak, self-questioning woman.
She tries desperately to reunite with a younger brother that wants nothing to do with her and in turn, finds she is in love with his mortal brother, Aiden.
Many times, I wanted to reach through the book and shake Aiden. He is a good person but blames himself for pretty much everything.

Hay partes en las quise matar a Aidan (bastantes!) me gustaron los cambios que hubo en Syrena, y sobretodo Nuie.

DNF. I didn't like the worldbuilding and the heroine had a slightly "helpless" trope going on that irritated me.

Buku ini jauh lebih bagus daripada buku pertamanya, meski kali ini gak bertema time travel.

Aidan MacLeod adalah Laird yang sangat protektif kepada adiknya, Lachlan, dikarenakan adik tirinya ini berdarah campuran--setengah manusia dan setengah fae. Konon, hal inilah yang membuat ayah mereka jadi gak waras dan sampai berubah jadi abusif, bahkan hampir membunuh Lachlan dengan cara melemparkannya ke tebing. Untunglah, justru si ayah yang tewas secara tidak sengaja. Maka dari itulah, Aidan benci buk

Debbie Mazzuca always dreamed of becoming a published author, and thanks to the encouragement of her grandfather, author Dudley Copland, she never doubted her dream would come true.

Because her grandfather not only instilled in her a love of reading and writing but a passion for everything Scottish, she took a trip to Scotland in 2006. A slight detour had her touring the Isle of Skye instead of her
