Sweet Home Highlander was a very enjoyable read and a great start to the Tartans and Titans series, a spin-off of the Lords of Essex series.

However, after six years she must travel to Scotland to seek a divorce, meaning she will be forced to face the life and man she fled. Niall is shocked to find Aisla has returned and even more so when she asks for a

Sweet Home Highlander by Amalie Howard and Angie Morgan
Tartans and Titans #1

Historical romance set in Scotland with a second chance at romance theme for Niall and Aisla proved to me that what is usually wrong with a relationship in the beginning is often a problem later on or should the two get back together again.

Both hero and heroine seemed a bit lame brained at times and had me scratching my head thinking they must be daft or not have thought things through before saying or doing what they

Received in exchange for a honest review.

What I like most about this book is how Aisla isn’t what you expect for the time this takes place in. She is strong, independent, smart,feisty and mischievous. You can see that her heart is still hurting from her past with Niall but she is also frustrated at what is happening as well. She guards herself well and is very wary of Niall and really doesn’t believe he has changed. I love the deviousness of Niall’s mom.

Niall long ago had his heart broken. He

How often do we get a second chance at love? For Alisa and Niall, it could happen. Married young and then separated for six years (why you ask? will have to find out!) Aisla has been living in Paris and decided she wants to remarry, but has one problem. She must divorce her husband first. Returning to Scotland to confront Niall, she finds he is not as willing as she thought. The only way he will grant her the divorce is that she live with him as a wife for six weeks and then he will give her the ...more

I adore resurrected marriage stories and this one goes to the top of my list. Lady Aisla Montgomery has lived the last six years the toast of Paris while her husband, she assumes, continues to drink and wench at his castle in Scotland. She married for love the first time. Perhaps marrying for friendship would work better the second time. But first, she must return to Scotland and ask her husband for a divorce. Little does she know, Niall Maclaren has cleaned up his act, but he is bitter and ...more

Sometines Niall needs to be shut up by the only way his woman knows how, “all this time, I thought…” Aisla kissed him, so he wouldn’t have to finish his sentence..." Niall loves to tease his lady, “what do ye expect looking the way ye do, lass? I’m only a man after all.” His voice had gone low and husky. “Dunnae fash, we’ll be doing a different kind of dancing later.” I liked this book, I loved Niall.

I was lucky enough to read an early version of Sweet Home Highlander. Howard and Morgan are off to a great start to a new series. Though slightly darker than the last book of theirs I read, I enjoyed every page of it. I adored Aisla and Niall and rooted for them the entire time. Looking forward to book 2 in Tartans and Titans.

This was not a “happy” sort of story. The antagonism, and mistrust between Aisla and Niall is prevalent throughout the story until the end when all is finally resolved.

I actually liked both their characters. Aisla’s leaving him is a waking up call to Niall who then buckles down and finally mans up. He learns responsibility and turns his efforts to improving the lives & livelihood of his people and finds that he has talents that he never realized before – a skilled craftsman and inventor.

Set in 1800s in Scotland, this is a second chance romance with treachery, jealousy, misunderstandings and love. Lost and found!

Niall and Aisla were introduced in the previous book where they were teenagers and madly in love. However, six years has passed since and things are very different.

Jealousy and conniving pulled this young couple apart and they went their separate ways. Aisla went to Paris whilst Niall has become a responsible and respected Laird.

Although, they are so far apart, they

I really wanted Niall and Aisla to get back together because it is so very obvious that those two are in love despite everything that happened between them and I must admit that their lack of communication or sometimes even their malcommunication made me a bit mad. Fortunately, before they really made me mad, they started to talk and ...well.

This book pulled me in and kept me reading despite their lack of proper communication. I loved Niall and Aisla and hated those that tried to tear them

This is the first story in the Tartans and Titans series and I can't wait for more!!! There are so many people that I hope are written about...but...

This story is about Aisla and Niall. They were married quite young but have been separated for six years. Aisla has been away in Paris and has become more "refined" and finds that she enjoys Paris over Scotland. Niall, meanwhile, has been trying to make something of himself with the land that he has.

Aisla needs a divorce to carry on with her life,

I love historical fiction and this book is simply amazing. It's well-written and has some very interesting characters. Especially, I loved both Ailsa and Niall. The story is emotional, full of angst, romantic, and quite humorous at times. I quite enjoyed reading it and would recommend it if you like historical fiction, especially those set in Scotland.

Lady Ailsa hasn't been to Scotland in six years. After her husband told her to leave she just never could return. So she lived in Paris

The story of the one hand highlander and his deserted wife, wagering their future.

Yeah. I had no idea what to expect of this book other than the fact that it would have some lovely push and pull. What i din't expect was for that push and pull to last for the entire book. Well, until 80%, more or less. I really wanted to punch Niall in the face a couple of times. He was a typical male for being fooled by a pretty face. Because a pretty woman can't be wicked at all, especially if she has been a

These were new authors to me, and I'm glad to say that I'm not the least bit disappointed. I love a good Highlander story, and this was one. Niall and Aisla were married young, and things did not end well! They've been apart for six years, but are reunited when Aisla needs to obtain a divorce from Niall in order to marry her best friend, Julien. Things between our Hero and Heroine don't look too good now, either!

Both Aisla and Niall are strong willed people....perhaps stubborn would be a better

Lady Aisla Maclaren has been living in Paris for years. Her best friend has suddenly asked her to marry him. There is a big obstacle to that, a certain Highlander she left behind in Scotland.
Laird Niall Maclaren has spent the last few years dragging himself out of the bottle and rebuilding his life. His family keep telling him that he needs a woman, but nobody can take the place of the one that he sent away.

I have really enjoyed this writing duo, so I was super excited that they were writing another historical romance series. And I was especially excited this spin off started with Aisla and Niall. They were both so great and were fire together.

Aisla and Niall are both great but they are both incredibly stubborn. Neither one wants to be the one to back down and admit their faults and they were both at fault. What I loved was watching them grow and come

Not read a book by these wonderful authors? That will nevaaaaaaa happen!

This book is no different from anything else delivered by Howard and Morgan in that they give us storylines that are rich with history, lovable and engaging characters, plenty of chemistry, filled with twists and turns, and sprinkled with the right amount of intrigue. Ooooh yea that’s what I’m talking about...

Sweet Home Highlander is Book 1 of the Tartans and Titans series which is a spin-off from the Lords of Essex series.

Good job, Aisla!

I absolutely loved the story.
There’s only 1 reason why it didn’t get 5 stars from me and that is the fact that the timeline doesn’t match. I’m not so ignorant to expect historical accuracy from a historical romance but I would expect at least the right time period. This story happens in the 1860’s, however; the clan lifestyle in the highlands was extinct in the mid 1700’s, after the Jacobite risings. There would be no laird or clans as described, also the use of kilts and tartan at this point
