Sissy's Romance Book Review
When a Highlander Loses His Heart 'When a Highlander Loses His Heart' by Julie Johnstone is book Four in the "Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts" series. I haven't yet read all the book in this series so for me this was a standalone book. This is the story of Graham and Isobel. Isobel has been in a convent since she was a baby and her father didn't plan on getting her out until she turns 18 years of age. Isobel's grandmother had left her a castle which has made her a target for clans wanting to c ...more

When a Highlander Loses His Heart (Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts Book 4) by Julie Johnstone is a wonderful addition to this series. It can be read as a stand alone. However, I'd suggest reading, "When a Laird Loves a Lady", as well, this series is simply to amazing to miss.

This is the story of Graham MacLeod, a Highland warrior with many doubts and his jealousy causes him to react before thinking things through, which comes from his past insecurities and causes him much distress. Isobel Cam

He was the enemy of her family.

Isobel Campbell may have grown up in a convent but she was sure of two things – 1) her father loved her and 2) the MacLeod clan were the enemy. Now she is free of the convent, of an age to marry and take control of the castle she inherits from her grandmother; what she soon learns challenges everything she’s believed.

She was his means to revenge.

Graham MacLeod grew up feeling like he had to prove himself; a fact that almost destroyed him. Now he’s learned from his

OMG, I LOVED THIS BOOK. Yes I know am shouting it but come on what an amazing story, it left me wanting some much more of Isobel and Graham. I just didn't want it to ever end, this is definitely a book you wont want to put down once you start. So here far warning and go ahead and call in sick. This is book 4 in Julie Johnstone, Highlander Vows: Entangled Heart series, and what a great edition it has made, they only keep getting better. However no worries if you haven't found the time to read the ...more

Julie Johnstone has quickly become one of my favorite authors writing Medieval romance and the MacLeods, one of my favorite families. I wasn't too sure about Graham in the previous books but in When a Highlander Loses His Heart, Johnstone does an outstanding job of slowing peeling away the layers of this proud warrior to reveal the vulnerable and wary heart of a man who believes himself unworthy of love, allowing the reader a better understanding of his actions, past and present. Why and how he ...more

I definitely lost my heart to this story! I'm so glad I read the first two books in the series because I don't think I would've enjoyed this book as much without having known Graham's background so well. It's one thing to be told someone was horribly selfish and quite another to experience it. I was so curious to see if Graham could win me over. He was a major JERK in the second book of the series.

The story of Graham and Isobel really gripped my attention. I loved both of these characters. Even

This has been my favorite Julie Johnstone book to date. I have read the three previous books in her Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series and they were all great books, but this one had that something more that I don't know if I can put my finger on it. It was engaging from the very beginning. I haven't enjoyed a book so much as I have with this one. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it in one sitting. The story itself was completely engrossing. I was a full participant in the happe ...more

When a Highlander Loses His Heart is a wonderful addition to the Highland Vows: Entangled Hearts series. It can be read as a stand alone, but the preceding books in the series provide a rich background for this story. Graham MacLeod has a huge inferiority complex. Since youth he has been racked with jealousy of his brothers and guilt at failing to protect his sister Lena. Isobel Campbell was raised in a nunnery and is finally free and returning to a family she believes loves her, only to find sh ...more

Isobel Campbell has spent all her life in a nunnery. She is an heiress with a very valuable castle to come to her from her grandmother.
To inherit she must be over eighteen and married. Unfortunately that makes her a target to be used to gain the castle.
Colin MacLeod has been ordered to steal Isobel from her father and bring her to the king so that he can choose her husband.
There are a lot of reasons for bad blood between the two clans and our heroine has no clue who is good or bad.

What happens when Graham MacLeod abducts Isobel Campbell, because he's set on revenge, only to discover something much more powerful and life-changing?

This book is packed with action, intrigue and emotion. It kept me on the edge of my seat and made me crave for more. It was exciting and fast-paced. It had a strong and courageous heroine that I love so much. It had a hero who lost sight of his worth at a very young age who was in dire need of realizing he was worthy all along.

OMG Great Book

Graham and Isabel come together as a perfect tag team. The way Graham struggles with his past pull at the heart, as well as the pain it brings her. Speaking of pain this book tells how one can forgive another for wrongs brought about by the others family. I don't want to give away too much. Clan MacLeod s rule again in this fourth book. Love Julie's Medieval stories!

Steeped in intrigue and betrayal, this love story was not easily resolved. The characters are all well defined, each with their own baggage and unfulfilled needs. This story is definitely for anyone wanting sword play, flawed heroes and intrepid female characters in their romance books!

I gratefully received an ARC of this book to read and review and I enjoyed every minute of doing so!

Author Julie Johnstone is just one of those writers who stays with you the more you read her tales of love and adventure. This fourth story in the Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series, WHEN A HIGHLANDER LOSES HIS HEART, is delightful tale and a must read.

Highland warrior, Graham MacLeod has many times allowed his emotions to overrule his actions. Abducting Isobel Campbell, who has been convent raised since she was a girl, begins a domino effect of mishaps that will prove to cause trouble for

Okay Read

I have read several books in this series and I am glad that the main characters in this book were not subjected to rape/physical abuse (unlike one or two books in the series). It started out interesting enough then somehow the plot sort of plateaus and then picks up the pace only towards the end.

The hero is sort of tortured by his past. The innocent heroine struggles to deal with deceitful family and being married to the hero who claims he cannot love her. The characters of the previou

Good read!

I love the whole series. Graham had intrigued me from the earlier stories and I was waiting for his complex character to bloom. The author does not disappoint - this story has everything that she puts in her stories - the emotions, the beauty of nature, the deep characters, above all love. I just gave it 4 star because the earlier book in this series has me enthralled still, and if I can only give 5 stars to that book, I thought I would restrict myself to 4 for this story.

Lovely read in general!
The book felt like it was in two parts. The first part of the book moved so fast I could hardly catch a breath - or more like Isobel could hardly catch her breath! I loved her character because she was both firm and soft. I almost cried a few times. I’d read book 2 and was happy to see all the women unite. Marion is always a dear!
I liked how Graham transformed from book 2. I really enjoyed his character and I’m so glad Findlay is gone . Looking forward to reading book4!

I would have liked so much more if the H was not the Graham we met in the previous novels of the series. There he was weak, whiney, and wicked and I couldn't stand him. I know he repented, as he keeps repeating throughout this book, but you can't become a Hero just like that, after you purposely ruined your own brother life! (Not to mention Bridgette!). I'm sorry but somebody that was a selfish monster for years and years is not my idea of a Hero. And between me and you, if I were Lachlan I woul ...more

Wonderful Medieval Romance with the Grants once again. This time Elshander Grant with a party of knights, who are escorting King David’s mistress to see him. At the same time Joya was rushing to warn of the ambush. The escort was ambushed and the knights tried to save the mistress. Joya’s horse panicked and threw her off causing head trauma and unconsciousness.
I thoroughly loved this book. I love all of Keira Montclair’s novels. They are all a must read.

Good story

This was the perfect book to start off the new year. I really liked Graham and Isobelle. From previous books I knew it would take a strong and special woman to capture Graham. All of the characters are well-written and I look forward to reading more books in the series. I am moving on to Cameron's story now.

So good

This series is so good. I liked this one better than the 2nd one. Graham has a very hard head and took a long time time to tell his love but you can pick it up from the very start. That’s what I like about these books. Can’t wait to read about Lena but Cameron’s is before her story.

Another lovely read

This series of Highland warriors is just amazing. Graham and Isobel story just flows from brother to brother stories. The writing of their love, fierce fighting, of those they love, and for the family clan. This is what captivated my joy in reading. It is a delight to also learn some Scottish history and their beautiful language.

What a great story. I loved reading about Graham and isobel ,I wasn't to certain of the outcome of the story would be a good one or not for isobel but it ended perfect. I love it when a female lead takes matters into her own hands, she just seemed to have great handle on the situations around her except when it came to graham at times. Graham was just so hard headed ,took him long enough to see the error of his ways but he sure put in one heck of a fight. Men,am I right? Definitely loved having ...more

The Highlander saga continues....

A heart rendering continuation of the saga that introduces a soul mate for Graham. Isabel feels the attraction to Graham when he enters a room. She doesn't have to see him to know he's there! The struggles they face along the way.
