Regency propriety and Scottish boldness clash in this Regency romantic suspense flavored with a liberal dose of humor and a dash of inspiration.

Here's a short blurb:

Not a day has gone by that Ewan McTavish, the Viscount Sethwick, hasn't dreamed of the beauty he danced with two years ago. He's determined to win her heart and make her his own. Heiress, Yvette Stapleton, is

I'd give this debut author a 3.5 for writing a good, but not great, book. There is romance, adventure, angst, and humor, and the plot moves along briskly from London to the Scottish Highlands. The characterization is quite good, and the author did a very nice job with a variety of secondary characters, especially the odious Mrs. Pettigrove. I liked the hero and heroine and found them to be engaging and fairly believable.

But -- here is what kept this from being a four-star book for me: the accent

This was Collette Cameron’s debut novel and the first book in her Castle Brides series. I enjoyed it immensely.

I loved Ewan’s playful nature and wit but also how strong, protective, caring and loyal he is. It was also refreshing to see him in love with a reluctant Yvette rather than the more common scenario of the heroine hopelessly in love with the hero. I understood why his fear of losing Yvette compels him to conceal the truth about their marriage and I felt he genuinely thinks he is doing hi

Highlander's Hope delivers a HEA love story with the intrigue of spies and danger added in. Yvette is on the run from a dangerous suitor. Ewan is determined to keep her safe and ferret out the traitor that threatens the war office. I enjoyed the chemistry between Yvette and Ewan and the added suspense of peril. Overall it was an enjoyable and satisfying read.

I really enjoyed this eARC provided to me by the author. I felt it was hard to put down as well. One really comes to enjoy these characters and wants the best for them. We want a happy resolution to all matters.

I too would not have thought of this as a typical "Highlander" novel as mentioned in the other review. It does meet the definition I believe with the traditions and loyalty of described actions as well as Ewan's family. It truly is London meets American meets Scottish type flavoring.

I wa
Spies, traitors, attempted murder and abduction, heiress in peril, handsome Scottish hero and a secret marriage all rolled up into one wild Regency Romance adventure. Sign me up! I eagerly dove into this story with anticipation.

Yvette escapes Boston just ahead of her greedy, crazed step-brother who will do anything to get his hands on her fortune. However, London proves to be no safer as she is again pursued and this time by strangers. The man from her dreams- and yes, I mean literally- arrives

This book surprised me on several levels. Though it takes an approach that appears typical for many historical romances these days—Scottish Hero, Regency Historical, and Virgin Heroine. However, nothing is completely as it seems. This very independent heroine is escaping a determined and violent suitor, and she has had persistent and sensual dreams of the hero for years. Both of these elements play into a nice mystery plot for the reader to unravel. Bravo to author Collette Cameron for carrying ...more

I really enjoyed this book! It had mystery, political intrigue, humor, and best of all a sweet love story with characters I liked very much.

Miss Yvette Stapleton is on the run from her step-brother Edgar, who will stop at nothing, including murder, to get her inheritance now that her father is dead. Forced to travel in secret and alone, she leaves Boston and returns to England. As if constantly looking over her shoulder isn't bad enough, she has a thoroughly irritating and gaseous bunkmate who I

Oh. My. Gosh. I loved this story! Highlander’s Hope is an engaging read that I couldn’t put down! This Regency romance is full of action and smoldering romance.

I was hooked from the beginning of the story as Miss Yvette Stapleton is sailing to London from Massachusetts. She is being chased by her step-brother, Edgar Marquardt, whom she suspects is responsible for the death of her father and step-mother. Edgar is desperate to get his hands on Yvette’s fortune. Once in London she is still not safe

Though Collette Cameron's debut novel, Highlander's Hope, references highlanders in the title, it truly is a Regency mystery, and it's all the better for it. Attempted murder, spies, traitors, a beautiful and vulnerable heroine, and a handsome Scottish hero, all set against the backdrop of the Regency era, this story is a fun adventure mystery romance.

The heroine, Yvette, escapes Boston and her step-brother, who wants nothing more than to get his hands on her fortune. When Yvette is once again

*chuckle* What a fun ride!

Evvy is a sweet character full of spunk. It is fun to read the story from her POV. She has heart and hope and is delightfully opinionated. She is rescued on occasion, but she’s not just a hopeless heiress in pretty dresses! She wields a knife with deadly precision!

Ewan is intelligent and quick. Having half the story from his POV really takes everything to another deeper level. He is hot, which is important, coming from a handsome family (I love why's!) His character is
