Author Hannah Howell is a master of the pen. She creates such astounding novels that continue to entertain me. I am a big fan of her highlander novels. Ms. Howell's latest, HER HIGHLAND CHIEFTAIN captivates from page one. Unfortunately, I lost a little bit of love for the lead characters, Bethoc and Callum, as the book went on. I actually found myself more interested in what was going on with secondary characters because of the same old same old situation going on between Bethoc and Callum. However, I felt that in the end, they redeemed themselves so I am glad I stuck in there. ...more

Heloise has been in love with William forever, but ever since he shot her down for professing her feelings, she has avoided him as best as possible. Unfortunately, she needs his help.

That turns out to be a lot harder than expected when he keeps finding her in dangerous situations. And when all is said and done, can he really let her go?
I loved A RAVEN'S HEART. Everything about it stood out... the beautiful cover, the characters, their pasts, the plot... all in all a wonderfully written novel. Heloise and William are a perfect match. Both are strong-willed and determined to get what they want and aren't afraid to fight for it tooth and nail. From the moment the cross paths at William's scandalous masquerade, sparks fly. It would be so easy for both to just give in to the obvious love they feel for one another, but where is the fun in that! I had a blast reading all about their adventures. A RAVEN'S HEART is my first book by author K.C. Bateman and won't be my last. ...more
