Well this was.... hmmm... don't know hahaha

I was expecting it to be a good, safe, short choice about HIGHLANDER!
Obviously my expectations were high... too high...

"He’d built up his stamina over the years which had earned him the name Devil of Dunrobin."

The book started... well i didn't mind the start so much (his whoring with maids) as i found really disgusting what followed.

When his betrothed arrives, he discovers the chieftain has two sisters. One is in the bloom to deliver him lots of
...Ye've bewitched me body and soul

AYE! me too I'm bewitched by the book...Its like melted chocolate with a pinch of salt...which make it all the more sweet:)
the chocolate would be the love scenes and passion and the great chemistry between the H/h you just want them to be together forever and the salt would be the deep pang feeling I felt when something is totally wrong you gonna cry which make you hook up with the story...I wish this would have been a novel yet it still affects me in grea
Um... Okay...

Not really sure what to say about this novella. It's not really all that well written and the "hot" factor is not particularly "hot" IMO, nor is the romance even all that believable. All in all, pretty darn forgettable!

I usually don't care much for short stories but I LOVED this one. I clicked 5 stars but really it's 4 1/2 because at 65 pages it was just not long enough for me. This could have been an Amazing book, I wish Kimberly would have spent more time to make this a longer story. What I did get from this book was a fast HOT easy read that kept me very interested. I liked both of the H&h in this story and it had a HEA.

If you read this review Kimberly please write your fan's another regular sized roma
Oh.My.Laird. This book was so hot, I needed an oven mitts just to hold it.

I loved Magnus the sexually advanced highland Laird. Well what not to love considering he was very wicked and very creative.

This was just a short story, but I felt that it was very sufficient. Don't wanna ruin it by being too much..

3.5 "I like it but don't love it" Stars!

For a novella, I thought Kimberly did a great job in ensuring equal parts plot and smut. Sexy time started right on the first page but before the end of it, I was much more intrigued by the story itself. Having said that, since it's a novella, things had to happen fast. Meaning to say, insta-ttraction and falling in love after talking for a few hours. If finding love was that easy, I would h

I need to read a full length historical romance book. Taming a highland devil made me realise that. This was set in 1480 (or somewhere mear that time). I disliked that the book started with a threesome (Magnus and two maids) and then Magnus had sex with Vanna, Effies sister. If I put aside that I have to say that the book was hot
A spicy little tumble in bed with a laird? Yes please! Short quickie read, with just enough heat to warm those tootsies.

OH yes!!! This will be a book I'll read again and again

The first chapter had me shocked! I wasn't expecting such a hot scene. I did not like this over sexed Hero :(. Then the sisters (one is his betrothed) come in and meet this "Devil". He finds out the brother was hiding one of the sisters and he kindof likes her....boobs that is. Then he demands to meet with each sister one by one.

I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, this does not affect my opinion of this book or the content of my review.

It looks like this is a story that was previously published by Ellora's Cave and the rights have since reverted to the author and she is now self publishing it. I don't know, but maybe if I had known it was previously published there, it might have set my expectations a little better. Because, this was not what I was expecting.

Don't get me wrong. This wasn't

The Devil of Dunrobin, Highland Warrior and Laird has finally met his match!

To choose between two such stunning sisters as Vanna and Effie, to be his Lady Sutherland, should be simplicity itself. Yet if his Mother, and her brother have their way, it will be to the younger, lush, black-haired beauty, to whom Magnus has been betrothed to for the last six months, that he’ll wed. But when the elder red-haired, green-eyed sister catches his eye too, Magnus decides he will not be rushed, that he’ll t

I received a copy of this book from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.

This book was originally released by Ellora's Cave Publishing in 2011. I wasn't able to read it then. However, I am glad I got to read it this time. It's a quick, short read that you can easily finish in a few hours. It's also a steamy historical romance. See, those people from yonder days may actually be filthier than modern society.

I should start off by saying I love me some historical romance. I mean, really, I love this genre so much. I went through high school reading only historical romance novels so yeah. The overview made me want to read this so I was a bit disappointed when the book was more of a novella than a novel. For the shortness and lack of growth the book lost one and a half stars which leaves it with 3.5 stars.

I liked the characters and the way the story unfolded. A known rouge finally needs a wife and doe

Read this book practically while I worked on my elliptical machine this morning. I had been wanting to read it for some time so I decided to buy it and overall, because it wasn't too bad, I don't regret that decision. Though I was disappointed in the length, 163 Nook book pages, and the price, almost $6 bucks for such a short read! I liked Effie and I really liked Magnus (Maggie as his mother called him!), but how could I not like a Scottish man-whore who excelled in the bedroom!! The book was r ...more

Magnus doesn't like when his orders are not met, he becomes like a woman and takes offense, “leave us,” he cut Sylvie off sharply, and Effie might have thought him a tyrant for being harsh had he not wrapped his own fur around Sylvie’s shoulders before sending her out into the cold. He closed the door and turned his scowl on Effie . “I sent for ye two days past, and ye did not come. I sent for ye again yestereve, and ye ignored my request again. I would know why?” This was a quick read I liked i ...more

This book was ridiculous beyond words. I can't believe she would take him after he was with her sister. Her sister is a bitch and her brother is a nuisance. This book was a mess of epic proportions. I can't even begin to say.

Okay, just so we are clear, there was no "taming" of Highland Devil. He is just your usual male who, because of his status, wealth, character and looks, gets more action than your average guy. And due to that fact it is surprising he hasn't fathered any children so far.

And he is not a "Devil" at all. He is kind and considerate. He cares for his land and his people. But he is led by his dick - that is true. He just can't keep it under the kilt.

I received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I am a big fan of historical romances. I tend to prefer the Regency era, but after watching the first half of Outlander on DVD, I am definitely not opposed to the Scottish/Highlander genre. Taming a Highland Devil takes place at the end of the 15th century, so almost 300 years before Outlander, but a rogue in a kilt is a rogue in a kilt.

Laird Magnus Sutherland particularly enjoys the carnal pleasures of the women. Known as the Devil of Dunrobin castle, he fi nds his duties in the bedroom more to his liking than war.

The Taming of the Highland Devil is the first book I’ve read by Kimberly Killion and it will not be the last one. I normally do not read short stories because they do not have enough time to develop the characters and I simple like longer books to read for a few days not just a couple of hours. The story was about a battle scarred warrior who is marring to provide his clan with added protection with an alliance with Clan Mackay. The Laird Magnus Sutherland, is the Devil of Dunrobin, he’s quite t ...more
