That is, until Patrick sees her-a raven-haired beauty with eyes as dark as midnight. Patrick swore never to fall in love. Not even with a lass as wild as he...especiall

Sweetest Romance!

I didn’t think romance could get any sweeter than this installment. What makes this installment better than the rest you may wonder – well let’s just say Paula Quinn got the formula of Love just right. We all know Love changes a person and builds them into caring and irresistible human beings, but in this installment, Paula gives us a clear vision of a Highlander that’s a wild rogue who only cares for himself until the challenge of the chase becomes boring and a denial from a be

Patrick is a rogue, a warrior, and a magnet for trouble–in the best sense of the word. Paula Quinn immerses the reader in Scottish History right from the first page. From the thick brogue that you can hear in your mind as you read, to the sound of water splashing in the loch, the story’s setting almost rivals it’s storyline. Almost.

Darn I can’t believe it! This is the first Paula Quinn book that I didn’t just love and never want it to end. The book still had all the great qualities of a great character development and a journey to a better person. I just wasn’t feeling the plot. Patrick also didn’t catch my fancy. He just loved himself too much in the beginning and I never warmed to him.

Not my favorite book

Received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

Another great addition to the MacGregor/Grant family of stories!

Charlie has an otherworldly aire.. the way she dresses… the way she dances around. Patrick refers to her as a sprite and a nymph. She's a born leader, caring and has some serious fighting skills including being crazy accurate with a sling.

Patrick is a free spirit, not wanting any responsibilities to stifle him. He prefers fighting with his fists rather than a sword which ,to me, is unusual for a Highlander.

I thoroughly enjoyed this

Patrick MacGregor has avoided responsibility just as Charlotte Cunningham has carried the mantle of responsibility for most of their lives. When the two meet their attraction is undeniable but the futures they have chosen do not include each other. As hearts take over and secrets emerge can the two overcome the challenges their unexpected love presents?

All you have to do is meet Patrick MacGregor to see that Paula Quinn's Highlanders are irresistible and just keep getting better! Book six in the

Paul and Charlie are awesome. Charlie is in a tough situation. Her dad and brother Hendry are horrendous and just so vicious. You want to take her and her sister away. She is angry with Duff but still loves him and see his good. She is on a mission and a man in her life is not wanted. I love how she doesn't fall for Paul's charming ways but makes him earn her respect, trust and love.

So what happens? Paul enters her world and tips it on its axis. He is brash, rakish and charming. He at first see

The Scot's Bride is book 6 of The MacGregors: Highland Heirs series. This book in particular can be read as a standalone. Patrick MacGregor likes his life as is and unlike his many family members falling in love is the last thing he wants, he enjoys traveling from town to town fighting for money seducing a pretty woman when the need strikes. Charlotte "Charlie" Cunningham doesn't want to fall in love either, she fell in love once already only to have him taken from her at the hands of

The Scot's Bride (The MacGregor's: Highland Heirs) by Paula Quinn  
A thrill seeking adventure of lust, love and rivalries.  Paula Quinn is continuing the tradition of authors like Johanna Lindsey, Judith McNaught, Karen Hawkins and so many others.  With roguish warriors and spirited heroines, Ms. Quinn sets about laying siege to more than just the heart.  She infiltrates the imagination.  The Scot's Bride is a welcome edition to any romance lover's bookshelf.

Paula Quinn has done it again. She has given us another irresistible scoundrel, who has met his match with a strong desirable young woman, who knows her own mind. Charlotte Cunningham knows that Patrick MacGregor is trouble the very minute she sets her eyes on him. Patrick likes his life just the way it is, until he lays eyes on Charlotte. Neither want marriage, any marriage, but the summer has long days and sultry nights, enticing Patrick and Charlotte to crave each other. Can they find a life ...more

Patrick MacGregor is a charming rogue with a warrior spirit who has no interest in love and commitment, though he has seen and believes in both. Charlotte “Charlie” Cunningham is a strong, feisty, willful young woman with no desire to be any man’s wife or the object of interest for some rogue with no intention of sticking around.

The Scot’s Bride is a beautiful, well-written historical romance tale filled with adventure, deception, love, and romance. Patrick and Charlie share strong chemistry and

Endearing, well-developed and relatable characters populate this book. It is definitely a nice read. I did notice a couple of what I guess I’d call ‘plot holes’, but, if those had been done differently, I would have been reading a different book – and I liked this one.

Great characters in a messy plot

I would like to thank Paula Quinn, Forever/Hachette Book Group, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Charlie Cunningham has one goal: find a cure for her sister’s affliction and get the heck out of Pinwherry. She can barely stand to look upon her father and brothers since the day they murdered the boy she loved. They stole from her the love of her life and taught her no man is trustworthy.

As the MacGregor/Grant Family Tree grows, so, too, does my interest in this Scottish family, with its myriad of personalities journeying through life’s ridiculous/dangerous moments.

Patrick MacGregor, considered to be the Devil of the Highlands, is solely about Patrick, uppermost, the number of women he can bed. But the chase isn’t in him anymore, hasn’t been for a long time, yet he continues. Women are unable to resist the lure of the Devil of the Highlands. He comes to realize that women are ju

An intriguing Scottish romance with similarities to the historical past.
This is book #6 in The MacGregors: Highland Heirs series penned by Paula Quinn. If you ever watch the movie “Hatfield & McCoy” and enjoyed. Then you’re in for a real treat. Because The Scot’s Bride to me seems slightly similar to the drama that went on with the family.
But instead of the Hatfield & McCoy, we get the Cunningham & Fergusons/Macgregor, and this story has a happier ending than those two feuding fami

Quinn takes readers back to Scotland for another fast-paced, heart-tugging, second-generation MacGregor story filled with action, romance, and twists and turns aplenty. Patrick and Charlotte "Charlie" are both characters who captured my interest and tapped into my emotions. I was in Charlie's corner from the beginning and enjoyed the push and pull of her relationship with Patrick. I like that Quinn took her time with these two, giving both their relationship and Patrick necessary time to realist ...more

I loved Patrick and Charlotte's story. Quinn's MacGregors series is one of my favorites and she hits it out the the park with her latest once again!

Determined to never fall in love again, Patrick didn't count on falling for someone from an enemy clan. Having seen Patrick with another woman, Charlotte is determined to not fall under the spell of a rake. But as they say, the heart wants what the heart wants and these two couldn't do anything to spot it.

Definitely one for your must read pile!!

As usual Paula Quinn weaves a tale of complex characters and plot. As I said before, she is a master at storytelling and I truly enjoy the way she takes me into the Scotland of long ago and while guiding me through these intriguing plots she never fails to introduce me to the most interesting characters who are fully fleshed out, real and always total opposites.

There's nothing more fun than watching a strong, confirmed bachelor fall for the innocent and beautiful but never the less strong girl s

Warning: not completely safe, there is that opening scene, but the rest did make up for it with good wit and banter.

This is my first Paula Quinn book and I loved it. Heroine is fiesty and loyal, doesn't just fall for the good looks and becomes blind with lust. She notices him but she also knows his character.

Patrick our hero starts out completely opposite in character, a charmer who's always traded on his good looks and smiles but grows a lot in the story. The banter continues even as th

Patrick MacGregor loved the ladies and loved his life just the way it was, answering to no one and charming his way through life. He vowed no woman would tie him down until he lays eyes on Charlotte Cunningham. Charlotte knew Patrick was like every other scoundrel she has met and vowed she needed no man in her life.

Paula Quinn can write a Highland romance like nobody else! The story moves very quickly from page one until you get to the end. Every scene is very descriptive and you feel like you a

It was so much fun watching Patrick MacGregor fall to the "curse" of love that all of his relatives before him fell. He has run from the ideals of his childhood and revels in his rogue and wandering lifestyle, so when he meets Charlie he knows he should run for the hills and not look back but he can't for the life of him leave. He knows what is happening and knows what she could mean to him but he keeps deluding himself into thinking he can handle it and leave once he has won her as a conquest. ...more

A Reader's Opinion: Author Paula Quinn pens sexy Highlanders and witty dialogue! THE SCOT'S BRIDE is book two in the author's Highland Heirs series. I haven't read book one, and didn't feel lost going into this story. Patrick MacGregor lived a good life as a rogue and rake. He didn't need love and didn't need responsibility . . . until a woman from a rival clan enters his life. Charlotte Cunningham is a strong match for Patrick, only she and Patrick are trying to avoid the same things. Except at ...more

Having Patrick, the hero, getting frisky with his hands and lips on a beautiful random OW intent on taking things to the next level in the opening scene, had me almost giving up on this one before it really started, folks. You see, I don’t care what genre or year the storyline takes place. I simply do not want mental images of the hero with anyone other than the leading lady, even if they had not officially met yet. Knowing this was a frequent occurrence for him and having Charlotte, the heroine ...more

Note first that this book is apparently part of a large series that I've not read. It stood alone just fine, though I could feel some history was there that I was missing. But I don't think it effected me too much. It seemed to mostly centre around the male MCs family's sense or honor and therefore I should know what kind of man he really was, even as he acted a rogue.

Note also that this whole Historical Romance, Historical Highlander Romance (which seems to be its own subcategory) is new to me
