Not surprisingly, this trilogy has virgin heroines and alpha heroes:/
But. but. but it has a seamless blend of highland romance, and strong characters who have hearts of gold. The storyline grabbed my attention from the start and I pretty much read these books in a row:D

One of the best highlander series!
Nadine Bookaholic
Great box set, each of these stories were enjoyable and either a 4 or 5 star read

In Bed with a Highlander

Seduction of a Highland Lass
I was not prepared for what happened later on in the book, fair warning TISSUES are a MUST!!!
Alaric McCabe and Keeley McDonald are my favorite of all the couples. Alaric is brought to Keeley's cottage by his horse after he is ambushed and severely injured. I guess you could say that the horse was the matchmaker with this couple. ;) Alaric was bound to marriage with
AMAZING!!! The entire series was great, thus this book was the best by far!!!
Since I got my hands upon a box set I unfortunately cant rate each book of the McCabe Trilogy.
So Ive given the entire series an average 4 star rating.

Individual Ratings are as follows:
In Bed with a Highlander: 3.5 Stars
Seduction of a Highlamd Lass: 4.5 Stars
Never Love a Highlander: 4.0 Stars

Seduction of a Highland Lass was my favorite. I wasnt really looking forward to it when I started it, I was sure Id find Caelans book (03) more enjoyable but Keeley and Alarics book blew me away. I m not

I've read all of Maya's KGI series, and I really enjoyed them, but I've avoided her historical romance ones (mainly I confess because they are a bit pricey, and with so many good romance books available free or for 77p my budget, or lack thereof, couldn't justify it!). But I got a price alert that this bundle was on sale, and having overdone it recently on samey types of contemporary romances I was looking for a change, so I went for it.

I have to say, I am glad I did. While I still think her

Loved it and probably mainly just because of Mairin! Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoyed the whole book. It was really good. But Mairin was fierce, loyal, has a big heart, not easily subdued and she speaks her mind often without meaning to. It's so funny when things pop out of her mouth that she thought that she was only thinking. She's often horrified and at times Ewan is amused by it as he gets used to her ways. She'd been warned by Mother Superior that

This book includes all three books in the McCabe Trilogy.

In Bed with a Highlander is the story of Ewan McCabe, the eldest McCabe brother and laird of the McCabe clan, and Mairin, the illegitimate daughter of the king. Mairin has been hiding most of her life in order to avoid marriage with someone who is only after her inheritance. She marries Ewan after being abducted by and escaping from an abusive laird who wants to marry her to gain that inheritance.

Seduction of a Highland Lass is the story

The McCabes are Highlander brothers struggling to rebuilt their clan following a devastating slaughter 8 years ago, perpetrated by a woman, related to one of the nastiest men in the Highlands, who'd seduced the youngest brother. Each of the books dwells on one of the brothers and how they managed to stay strong warriors yet still manage to find equally strong women who actually made them even stronger and more human.

Others have said that the men degraded the women. Truth is, this is the way it

I liked this trilogy a lot! The women were strong! The men highlander worthy 😉 and they were easy reads. (I didnt feel a strong need to throw said book across the room because the characters were being completely stupid) I read all of these in just over a day (wouldve been less than 24 hrs if I didnt sleep, eat, or work) but, alas! Life isnt perfect. The audio version was also well done I listened to part of it when working, and read it when I wasnt! Overall Id definitely recommend it! ...more

These books were amazing and I really enjoyed them. Maya Banks does an amazing job of giving you the hot and steamy scenes but also the action and plot that you might also want. While to steamy moments will get you there, the love stories that she includes in these books will leave you wishing for your own highland warrior.

Each of these 3 books is the story of one of three brothers. Each story tells a tale of danger, hard life of the times, and the finding of love. Each brother is a warrior to be reckoned with. Each woman is strong in her own way and stand by their men with courage and strength. I love all 3 of these stories and wish there were more. Good wins over evil yet again.

These three brothers have another thing coming to them when they come across the paths of their ladies. Each lady is just what each brother needs to bring them great joy and happiness. Their clan gets completed and made while once more. After 8 years of uncertainty this is just what the doctor ordered.

One of the best series EVER! Suspense, romance, drama, battle, intrigue, plot, love...all that and more. It's one of those you can read over and over. In fact, I wouldn't mind re-reading these this coming year. They were fantastic.

In Bed with a Highlander, the first installment from Maya Banks McCabe Trilogy, is the very first Scottish historical romance novel Ive read, and consequently, also serves as an introduction to several more of the same genre that would burn my midnight oil thus far. I admit not being well-read about Scotlands mores and history, although I have always been fascinated with the place and its castles and William Wallace (the latter thanks to Braveheart).

Somehow Ive already surmised that the

In Bed with a Highlander - Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior ready to take back what is his clan'suntil a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin is the llegitimate daughter of the king and quite possibly the answer to his clan's survival.

Where can I find me a Highlander that wont mind the differences? I am so in love. I will continue to read much more.

I absolutely loved this series! The three leading female characters were wonderfully written. All three of them we're magnificently brave, fiercely loyal, incredibly strong, and passionate heroines. And theyve found the perfect leading men to complement them. Men, whom after many trails and errors, have learned to open their hearts and find that missing piece of themselves...
all three novels had brilliant storylines! They were captivating!

Maya Banks has blown me away again with the three books all wrapped up in one book. Maya Banks weaves such an interesting tale that you literally find yourself transported to the highlands of Scotland. Impossible to put down. The books flowed so well and kept my attention. It made me laugh and cry during some parts. If you want to read a great story. Read this trilogy. At parts of different stories I laughed so hard I cried and at other parts I cried (but they were not tears of joy).

Highland or bust

I've read many a trilogy and really wasn't expecting much. Honestly I just picked the series because I needed something to read. And I'm so glad I did. Maya Banks weaves such an interesting tale that you literally find yourself transported to the highlands of Scotland. A must read!

I still give it 5 stars. I loved it for a second time. all of the brothers were hot and married strong women. I only wish she could do a spin off on Crispin and Isabel when they grow up and who they end up with.

I loved this series. What better than a strong woman who loves her warrior! Caelen learned a lesson through Rionna, that a woman wants all of her man body and soul. A great read. Wish this series were longer!

Impossible to put down

I was quite surprised how quickly this series of books captured my attention and kept me thoroughly engrossed. The fast paced action as well as the realistic characters and plot were rivaled only by the modern romance which never disappointed.
Oh my, way to go out with a bang! I love that this series simmered over the first two books and then boiled over with the star of the show- Rionna. Fantastic historical/romance/fiction novel. I'm so glad I gave it a chance.
Brenda Margriet
I don't read much Highlander romance, but enjoyed these. The only other MB I've read is her contemporary erotica, and I can certainly see that influence. Enjoyed the strong women/stubborn men storylines, and my favourite was #3 with Caelen and Rionna, because she's a warrior princess.

Read the trilogy in 3 days. Was a good, easy read since I was not looking for anything too deep, so some smutty romance novels fit the bill perfectly. Definitely a little predictable, but aren't most smutty love stories?

I enjoyed this series of romance novels deals with the McCabe brothers and the strong women who came into their lives. However, these books are geared more for the romance...a bodice-ripper story. A quick read and I appreciated having access to all three books to read in one place.
4 stars. Read all 3 books in 2012. My favorite book of the series remains book 2, Seduction of a Highland Lass.
Ugh. I only made it of the way through before I gave up. I'm not fond of works that primarily depict women as sexual objects or helpless nurturing motherly souls. I had hoped for better. So disappointed. I'm too much of a feminist for this. ...more

I truly enjoyed this trilogy. I hope Maya continues with this genre. The books flowed so well and kept my attention. It made me laugh and cry during some parts. If you want to read a great story. Read this trilogy.
