I’m really enjoying this series....

I liked both characters a lot.

This is a forbidden love story. A tale of two brothers and for all you modern women, sheath your claws story, lol.

When you’ve been promised by a King to your enemies clan and you’re a woman with no rights but fall in love with someone else story, lol.

I really liked it, and loved seeing The whole tribe again.

Recommend.

Medieval Romance is not a genre that I usually read. That said this book by Julie Johnstone was a addictive read that I enjoyed very much. This is also the first Julie Johnstone book that I have read. EBooks have opened up a whole new world to romance readers in that we can now read many different authors that we have never read. Ok on with my review.

Brigette Maclean is a highland lass who would rather be a lad. She wants to help her brother protect her Clan from the English and rival Clans. She

Oh, man! I was so disappointed to go from 5 stars for the first book in this series to 2 stars for the second book. This one didn't work for me for several reasons. (1) Love at first kiss when the heroine was 15 isn't much to go off of as a reader. (2) I wasn't vested in this couple because Lachlan avoided Bridgette for the first half of the book and then she avoided him. (3) The author went to great pains to develop a feisty, independent and strong heroine and then had her do two really stupid ...more
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Sorrow, pain, heartbreak. Test, trials, tribulation. Family, honor, respect. This one took me on a journey through it all and then back again. I did not think that I could love a highlander more. Lachlan has my complete and utter devotion. This man. This highlander has vowed to love. The one true love that will take him to the ends of the Earth. This one love tests the bonds of family, honor and respect.

Bridgette was no slouch of a heroine. Lachlan could not have chosen a better woman to love a

Sooooo..... this was really awesome but it made me nauseous. You know how the hero always gets there just in time to save the heroine? Not this time.

I actually wanted to give this like 1-2 stars because I was so upset you know? I mean, I read romance for happy stories and I avoid sad, gross or angsty books like the plague. This was like all three. I swear it was like welcome to ansgst city for most of the book then... oh good I'm gonna vomit.

Ugh. Some parts were really great and the book was as

Lachlan goes to extreme measures when it comes time for one on one with his woman, "he shook his head. “I threatened them with death if they simply thought of coming outside.” Bridgette chuckled as she ran her hand down his chest and over the hard muscles of his stomach." I enjoyed this book, I really loved Lachlan.

Bridgette Maclean is living with the MacLeod clan. Her best friend Marion is married to the Laird Iain. Bridgette wants to be seen as an equal to men, but this isn't very common. She is very good with a bow and arrow. Not many men will best her when it comes to accuracy. When the men are heading out to hunt a boar Bridgette wants to show them that she could be a valuable asset. During this hunt she is ambushed by a rivaling clan and it's Lachlan who saves her from getting hurt.

Lachlan MacLeod loved the lassies and they loved him. While boar hunting at MacLean Castle, he rescued—unless you ask the lass, who claimed she was doing fine on her own—Bridgette from their enemies. They shared a moment. When his brother said his heart belonged to her—Lachlan did what was best. He backed away.

Bridgette MacLean is a very independent young woman, determined to prove she is equal to any man. In the highlands of Scotland in 1354 that is not an idea the men are agreeable with. King David's reign is shaky, with some of his nobles acting against him. A woman is often used as a pawn to secure alliances.
Lachlan MacLeod is brother to a powerful Laird and knows that he must put the needs of the clan above any personal wishes. When his King orders him to get information by any means necessary ,

I continue to be enthralled with Ms. Johnstone’s medieval romances. This one is about another of the MacLeod brothers, Lachlan, who is involved in a private feud with his brother Graham, who has declared he will marry Bridgette MacLean only because he seeks to win her from his brother Lachlan’s regard due to his jealousy. There are a couple of other intrigues going on in this Highland romance, including a long lost sister and a vengeful man who wishes to marry Bridgette as well as Graham and Lac ...more

Wonderful story couldn't put it down, it has all the elements you could want but be prepared for a sad part, well I thought it was sad. But at least it wasn't at the end of the story.

Bridgette MacLean always believed that just because she is a woman it shouldn't stop her from doing things the men did like hunting but her brother Alex the Laird believed otherwise. Just one person, Alex's friend, Lachlan MacLoad thought differently.

Lachlan wanted Bridgette, but because his brother said he also wa

Julie Johnstone has done it again! I was instantly attached to the character Bridgette MacLean for her fierceness and spirit. Her heart has belonged to Lachlan MacLeod, brother to the laird, from the moment they shared her first kiss in the woods. She can't get him out of her head nor her heart all those years ago. Lachlan is the type of man every woman would love to have, either as their lover or husband, but he can't deny the fact that there is something special about Bridgette. Loved the way ...more

A heartbreaking love story between Lachlan and Bridgette that managed to grasp my attention from the moment I read it. This story took me on an emotional and rocky journey that made me laugh, cry, scream with frustration, and showed me that whatever happens, if two people are meant to be together, nothing will keep them apart.
This book lived up to be everything I had hoped for and didn't let me down. A must read! Enjoy!

This book had me laughing and crying. There are some dark places, but love shines its light to warm your heart. I loved Bridgette's strength from the beginning. I held my breath at times when she did as she pleased. Lachlan was a very caring man with a big heart. The history behind the story was intriguing. I highly recommend this story, part of a series but does standalone.

I received an ARC of this book. I am voluntarily reviewing this.

Wicked Highland Wishes is another fantastic read by this author. She weaves a tale of romance possibly unfulfilled, jealousy, twists, danger, scheming and some serious heat. The book will keep a reader riveted with it's story. The characters are lively and real with their thick Scottish brogue and the way they can make the reader feel empathy.

I'm sorry I couldn't help myself. Why is it when it's a highland book it's all och and braw. Almost the entire book is written in venacular so, if you just skim to get the gist it's fine but to actually read it hurts your brain. The plot twist of something bad actually happening to the female mc was a good one. But the idiocy that led up to the bad thing was typical author "where do we go from here?" Its almost a one star book but the hero failing to make it in time gives it a boost.

It’s nicely written, good plot and sensible characters. but you know how romance novels are meant to keep you in a safe, happy bubble with their happy ever afters?.. yeah this one will burst that bubble and taint the perfect picture a little bit!! Very good book though!

Slowly, she turned her head toward him and their gazes locked. “Because he risked his life for me and sustained a terrible injury in doing so. But Marion made me see how wrong that reason was. Even greedy. I was marrying him to ease the guilt his selfless act caused me. But I ken I dunnae love him, and I dunnae believe I would ever love him the way he deserves to be loved—with all of a woman’s heart. It’s nae anything he’s done.”

If you have not read the previous book in this Scottish Medieval series, (When A Laird Loves A Lady, Marion and Iain's story) you will find this an easy to follow stand alone but you don't want to miss the adventure and history of each book in this 5 star series. This is Bridgette and Lachlan's story.

If you enjoy historical fiction and adventure romance, you'll love this series. The action keeps the plot moving forward quickly and you'll soon be hearing a wonderful brogue as you follow the diale

Wicked Highland Wishes (Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts Book 2) by Julie Johnstone is a fantastic Medieval/Scottish Romance. While, Book 2 it can be read as a stand alone, I would suggest reading Book 1 "When a Laird Loves a Lady", as well.

WOW Highlanders! I loved Book 1, but "Wicked Highland Wishes", was even better, if possible. I was enthralled and an awe from the first page to the last. This story will stay with you long, after the last page.
Fast paced, heart-pounding, emotionally charged

It's rare in a movie when they make a sequel and it's actually better than the first movie. The same holds true with books. They might be very good stories but sometimes that first book is the one that keeps you coming back to read it time and again. For me, this book is that rare sequel, like Empire Strikes Back, that will keep you coming back to it because it's JUST THAT GOOD.

Love, love, LOVE Lachlan! He is what I love most about a hero. He's loyal, fair, fierce, honorable, funny, sexy, loves

This book has it all -- young love, betrayal, trials, tribulations, treachery, heartbreak, honor, respect, torture, healing, trust. Historic Scotland - such barbaric times, yet such enthralling heroes and heroines.

I loved the hero (Lachlan MacLeod) in this book from the very beginning. He never needed to be redeemed, he was a good and honorable man from the very beginning. He falls in love early - and never falls out -- even through long separations and although he tries very, very hard.

This is book two of the series. The writing gets better and better with each book. I've said it before but it is really true. This story and its characters held my attention and allowed me to go on their journey with them. I enjoyed seeing characters I already knew from the first book as well. I am able to see things clearly as I read along. I enjoyed this book more than the first book and already looking forward to book three. I like a strong female lead but one who still has her weak moments. ...more
