A LOVER'S PROMISE

Well...I didn't really care for this book. The narration was pretty much its only saving grace. I loved the hero and heroine, but the plot fell short. Big time! Basically...I was bored throughout much of this story. Still, Paula Quinn is one fantastic author. Tamed by a Highlander, unfortunately, IS NOT romance at its best. Not for me, anyway.

You know something’s wrong when you’re 39 pages from the end and you seriously contemplate DNF’ing the book because you just wish it was over. The heroine was already killing the book for me, but then the last 100 or so pages were drawn out for no reason. It was so frustrating!

The book was pretty cute in the beginning. The heroine and hero were childhood sweethearts, but Connor abandoned her to fight for the English and Mairi never forgave him. They’re forced into each other’s company when Mairi

I'm reading the series slightly out of order…I jumped to this book after reading the 1st one because I really wanted to know more about Connor Grant & Mairi McGregor's love story & pronto!

This series has provided such a wonderful cast of characters--families who are renown from generations for their courage, leadership and passion. This series gives you the fierce McGregor warriors (including Mairi) from the Highlands, the Grants (who are the combination of royal English and Highland fa

If you like highlander series, this one is a really good one to try. I have found it much more interesting and better written than some of the new highlander series I have runs across lately. It does have some good historical detail which took a little bit of focus to figure out who the characters were and how they were connected. The stories are really good though I loved the romance between the hot highlander and their strong heroines.

hm... I can't decide if I liked this book or not.. I really can't stand the reason they stopped talking. I can't stand that Mairi gave up on the love of her life because he wanted to fight for his king. Connor even asked her to go to England and she refused and yet somehow it was all his fault that they "broke up". I hated Mairi. I like highland books with strong willed heroines but Mairi was just obnoxious. There is a time to be outspoken and crazy and then there's a time to act like a freaki ...more

I really like Paula Quinn's style but the last 3 books I read from her "Mist" series were rather disappointing. None of which lived up to the first book Laird of the Mist. However, Tamed by a Highlander convinced me again that this is one writer to follow.

The story is about 2 childhood sweethearts who fell in love with each other early in life. Connor, left Scotland at 18 to serve in the King's army. By that time Connor and Mairi had already known that they were for each other. Mairi being th
