Book Review For: 'Love with a Scottish Outlaw" by Gayle Callen 'Love with a Scottish Outlaw" by Gayle Callen is Book Three in the "Highland Weddings". This is the story of Duncan Carlyle and Catriona Duff. I have read the previous book but feel this is easily a standalone book.

I've given this a C at AAR.

I said, somewhere in a review in the dim and distant past, that I’m not a great fan of Scottish-set romances because the plotlines are generally so formulaic.  You know the sort of thing – Girl from Clan X meets Boy from Clan Y and they fall in love even though their respective clans are deadly enemies.  Girl from Clan X is usually all flashing eyed, flame-haired feistiness; Boy from Clan Y is a kilted hunk who is filled with lust in spite of his distrust of Girl from

I don't read many highland novels so it's refreshing to do so from time to time, especially when the story is written by an author like Gayle Callen. She paints a vivid picture of setting, characters and the rough life people endured in 18th Century Scotland. I loved the earthiness of the story, devoid of lavish balls and expensive embellishments. This was real, the love that develops a struggle between trust and forgiveness.

Duncan is a serious, honorable and stern man with a plan when he discovers the daughter of his enemy, fainted in front of his horse. When Catriona awakes, she claims no knowledge of her history or her father. He cannot leave her to fend for herself in the rough country, but her presence could endanger those he loves and cares for – BUT, stuck between a rock and a hard place, he takes her in for careful observation, never letting on his true identity or why he is bent on helping her.

Catriona Duff awakens outside, wet and cold, with a painful throbbing in her head. There are two dead men beside her, and she doesn’t know who they are, or who she is. Duncan Carlyle, outlawed Chief of Clan Carlyle is riding to his encampment when Cat faints in front of his horse. While the woman sounds English, after a few minutes Duncan realises who she is: the daughter of the enemy, the Earl of Aberfoyle, the man who forced Duncan to go underground.

Jude Deveraux got me hooked on highland books, which means my kindle and bookcase are stock full of them! So when I found out that I could review this book, well, I jumped at the opportunity.

I love the camaraderie with clan members and how much they look up to their Laird and work together to keep peace in their home, whether it be a keep or a cave.

While reading this book, I felt as if I was transported in time to the crisp Highlands, gossiping with clan members as we did the laundry, prepared

This is a fast moving tale of romance and intrigue. The author has captured the spirit of Scotland and its people in this era. Her characters are so realistic, I expected them to walk right off the page. The plot hooked me from the very first page and I read the entire book in one sitting. I can definitely recommend this book to all readers of historical romance and especially to those who cannot resist a man in a kilt.

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This is the third book that I read from Gayle Callen and coincidentally, this is the third book in the Highland Weddings series. I had started reading the first two books in this series and then abandoned them.

It does seem like I do know why I had abandoned them. I really had a hard time getting into Love with the Scottish Outlaw

I have to say that Love with a Scottish Outlaw was an interesting read. The main reason would have to be the heroine has amnesia, and the hero decided to out vengeance on his enemy by using his daughter. Okay, now if you have been following the series, you would know that the heroine's father is dead. If you didn't you need to go back and read the previous books, because it happen some time in the series. However, Duncan has no clue, and neither does t

I had a difficult time warming up to the romance between Duncan and Cat. Maybe it was the huge lie Duncan kept from Catriona? Although his anguish was real and allowed for positive character development. Maybe it was the setting of a dark, damp cave for a majority of the novel that made the beginning of the story drag for me? Individually, Cat and Duncan were interesting enough, but the spark between them wasn't strong enough to pull me in early.

A beautiful continuation of the Highland Wedding series. I have been wanting the second Catriona’s story. I just never imagined that it would be with her being more or less held captive and used to bartering. I am disappointed that her father still has not learned his lesson or just don’t care. Here I thought he was dead. I liked Catriona from the first book in this series and now it’s her turn to find love. She was not prepared to find it the way she did.

I love this series! <3

Duncan and Cat's story is just so good. I haven't read a lot of amnesia stories--it always seems to me an awfully convenient plot device--but here it works, and OMG it creates one heck of a story. Even though Duncan starts out their relationship...well, lying to Cat and to his people...he does so for the same reason he's been doing just about everything since taking over as head of his clan--in an attempt to keep the Carlyle clan safe. And yeah, he takes a big risk keeping

I absolutely loved this book !

It was a totally seductive story. I always go for the flawed outlaw types. Hands down they are always my favorite. I guess you could say that Duncan Carlyle was a tarnished hero. When he rescued Catriona, who had lost her memory and very nearly her life, Duncan recognized her as the daughter of his great enemy. He seized the chance to get revenge upon an her evil father. He started lying to her right away, and of course, they were inescapably drawn to each other. Y

This was a pretty cute fun Scottish highlands romance. I really enjoyed it. I liked that even without her memory Catriona was a good person, and she didn’t come across as whiny. The author did call this out several times, which was mildly annoying, but overall I did appreciate the fact that she just dealt with her situation. Duncan was a harder character to get behind, because he did know her. Initially I liked that he was lo

It is a couple of months (though it seems like a year) since I read the first 2 books in the series. It was in my bowling bag, and as we are not bowling, I forgot about it. Finally I remembered to get it, and when I started I didn't remember the preceding books and went OH, CAT. And it all became clear. Her cousin had been kidnapped by her betrothed, Hugh. thinking it was Cat. After Hugh and cousin married, Owen, Cat's brother married Hugh's sister to prevent a feud.

I truly loved this book. It is so well written and you just fall in love with the chacters and deeply care what happens to them. The relationship between Cat and Ducan isn't an easy one but one you will enjoy reading about. It's very much a romance book but has so much more elements to it then that. Apprently it is the third book to a series but I have only read this one and read like a stand alone. It did give me a lot of Outlander vibes but is still very much it's own story.

I really dislike the heroine's dad. He has almost ruined Riona and Hugh future so as Hugh's clan. And then Duncan's clan is also suffering because of the late earl, good thing Owen isn't like his father. Anyways I was not sure if I will read this book at first. Revenge isn't my thing, good thing Duncan's version of revenge isn't that cruel but it hurts Cat nevertheless tho the hero's real target of revenge is the late earl. Duncan is a good man despite his action and I like him for it and Cat is ...more

This was my first Gayle Callen book and won't be my last. This is the third book in the series but I wasn't lost at all.

Duncan and Catriona were great together!  My heart went out to them both for the deception Duncan was pulling off, knowing he was falling for her and she for him and what would happen when she learned the truth.  Thankfully, all ended well :)

Got this book from a second hand store. Sat down to start at midnight and finished it a 4 am. Could literally not put it down. I haven't read any other book in the Highland Wedding series and as such this story makes complete sense even when reading it as a standalone. I'm excited to find the fist two books in the series and read them. I would recommend this book to any of my friends. Lovely read, I hope to read more soon. ...more
Much like the previous books in the series, this is a fun and romantic read about a Scottish clan leader and the woman he wasn't expecting to claim his heart. It's sweet and the amnesiac kidnapped element gives it a bit of difference. I liked the characters. Cat is as fierce as her cousin and her sister in law. Duncan really cared about his people which made a nice change. I had a few issues with certain plot points which didn't really seem quite right. But a fun lazy day read. ...more

Duncan couldn't have expected that finding an hurt Catriona in the middle of nowhere. He was on a mission to rescue the kidnapped children. She would be a means to bring drown her father.

What made me dislike this book is that the heroine was set to be angry with the hero with half the book left. It just took a while to get through the rest of the book when the heroine is constantly talking about how she'll never be with him despite how much he's trying to make it up to her. It made the rest of the book drag on and it made the romantic scenes less substantial. ...more

I felt that the ending was a bit abrupt but this was otherwise a lovely read. Being a forbidden romance with the amnesia/forgotten identity trope, there was plenty of angst and yearning, and the plotting was decent overall. I spent a lot of time wondering how the H/h would work everything out in the end to get to their HEA.

I enjoyed reading this book in the Highland Weddings! This is about Cat and Duncan Carlyle. Duncan is the laird of Clan Carlyle but is known as an outlaw because he tried to stop the kidnapping of children. Great story to read.

Like the others in the series, it could have used a better editor. Name changes for Cat/Catherine/Catriona was annoying when it was clear she was "Catherine" to herself sometimes but called herself "Cat" and vice versa. The journey of the story was good, the ending predictable. Overall enjoyable. ...more

3.5 Stars: One star for kilts. One star for a Scottish outlaw hero who saves children. One star for broodiness. And a half star for a good story from start to finish.
