Her Vengeful Scot
Her Vengeful Scot (The Highland Warrior Chronicles Book 2) - Christina Phillips

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

I just finished book 2 of Christina Phillips’s fabulous The Highland Warrior Chronicles, Her Vengeful Scot. Have to admit I’m loving this series a LOT. This book also had its share of drama and intrigue, much like book 1. The stories are well-written and, as far as I could tell, well-researched too.

The Highland Warrior Chronicles is set during the time of Kenneth MacAlpin, arguably the first king of the Scots, around 843. He makes his appearance in both books, though less in book 2 than book 1. He wasn’t really someone I cared much about. You’ll find out the reasons in my review. He was also the king of now extinct Pictland. The author’s website has a short intro about the Picts and Pictland which I found fascinating.

Book 1, Her Savage Scot, takes place a few months prior to book 2. Connor and his men travelled to the Kingdom of Ce, a segment of the Pictland, with a proposal for the King of Ce from his own King Kenneth MacAlpin. Recently, MacAlpin , the King of Dal Riada has had this notion that he should be the reigning king of Pictland seeing his mother was a Princess. The Royal Lineage, in the case of the Picts, comes via the mother and not the father, so MacAlpin was determined to grab what he deemed was his. The kingdom of Ce, Circinn and the others were being ravaged by the Vikings. MacAlpin asks that the eldest Princess of Ce be married to one of his warriors with Royal blood, in this case Connor’s elder half-brother, Fergus. In return, he’s willing to be allied with the Picts and help them fight the Vikings. Quite a lucrative offer no doubt. Connor was tasked to make sure the elusive Princess and the King, with other nobles be brought back to Dal Riada to discuss everything. If all agrees, the marriage will take place posthaste.

Her Savage Scot
Her Savage Scot (The Highland Warrior Chronicles Book 1) - Christina Phillips

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Her Savage Scot, book 1 of The Highland Warrior Chronicles, had been in my TBR for a while now. Recently, when I felt the urge to check out some medieval Scottish-Highlander romance, I thought why not?. This was my first novel by Christina Phillips and it definitely won’t be my last because I enjoyed the book more than I thought I would.

Her Savage Scot is set during the time of Kenneth MacAlpin, arguably the first king of the Scots, around 843. He makes his appearance here too, but not really as someone I cared much about. You’ll find out the reasons in my review. He was also the king of now extinct Pictland. The author’s website has a short intro about the Picts and Pictland which I found fascinating.

Princess Aila, the eldest daughter of the current King of one Pictish segment called Ce, is introduced almost at the beginning of the story. A widow since 17, Aila’s life had not been the same when her young husband Onuist died saving her life from the marauding Vikings. At least that’s how the story is told all around Ce, where Onuist is revered as a hero. Just as her maternal grandmother and maternal cousin Elise, Aila has the same power of seeing visions and sensitive towards a coming incident through their Goddess Bride’s blessings. However, on that fateful day, Bride didn’t come to her rescue or Onuist’s for that matter. Since then, Aila had decided to abandon Bride and embrace the ‘new’ religion AKA Christianity. She’s also become a recluse, so much so that people outside of her closest kin aren’t allowed to see her. She doesn’t go out much unless the very close circuit of the castle and she has no interest in being introduced to the strangers who come to visit Ce. Hence no one sees her in attendance of any feast or celebration. She’s become some sort of a myth. It’s been 9yrs. but she’s not going to forgive Bride for her betrayal.

good story and characters
Every Breath You Take - Christina Phillips

Piper was a good rich girl. Mason was a bad boy who wanted Piper was seventeen  and  was with his brother. But Piper wanted Mason to. Piper and Mason had not seen each other in a long time. Mason’s brother Colton died five years ago Piper knew why Colton was out recklessly driving and it eats at her. Mason felt guilty as he knew Colton shouldn’t have been driving the motorcycle but he didn’t stop him and Colton was killed in a motorcycle accident. Piper had always felt guilty when   Both Mason and Piper feel guilty but they believe that if they have one night together now it will get each other out of their systems. Every year on the date of Colton’s death Piper meet with Colton’s and Mason’s parents but this year Mason was there. Then Piper’s car wouldn’t start and Mason offered to give him a ride home.

I felt this was great book and a good fast read . I liked the plot and the pace of this story. I felt bad for the guilt both Piper and Mason felt as as Colton went through. I loved how Mason is portrayed. I liked the characters a lot and the ins and outs of the story and I recommend.

Guys always seem to think that Amy was dumb until she put them straight. But this time she would take it if it helped. Her bring down the man who was behind the murder of her dad. Amy reminded herself about one hundred times since Rex told her about one week ago about this job, this is a once in a lifetime a chance for payback. Until Amy  was thirteen she grew up around  tough bikers she thought they were a part of her extra family [ Silver Wolves M C ]. Since leaving school Amy had several part time job of waitressing during the day and tending bar at night and occasionally fast food. Aidan has owned Odin.s for five years and keeping the books up to date drives him nuts. Gage has a no screwing  the  staff rule for everyone. Gage  sees Amy and feels he has to fire her. Any girl that can get him hard just by  looking at her. Has to go. Amy had given a guy the eye and it turns out unfortunately it’s her new boss Gage was the son of the man- Axel Reynolds- who killed her dad. Rex told her the Viking Bastards - M C. are involved in large scale gun distributors and since Amy’s dad was put inside for handling illegal weapons for the wolves , it’s a trigger so all Amy needs is proof she can pass to Rex and he can let  his police contact Gage turns Amy on just by being near. Gage was everything I never wanted in a guy since she was thirteen. Gage and Amy end up in the apartment above the bar and she decided to kiss Gage and be alone with him. But Gage said it wasn’t more than just a kiss for him. Amy said it didn’t matter what she wanted. A kiss was all  he would get. Amy had been the daughter of the Silver Wolves Enforcer . Amy loved writing stories that crowds her head and fall in love with guys who’re never going to break her heart or crush her world. Gage’s older brother Zach said he had seen Rex Abbott hanging around outside Odin’s earlier that night. For ten years the Wolves and the Bastards had been allies Gage was fifteen when Rex’s father was President for the Silver Wolves and ordered Gage’s dad murdered while he was in prison. There was bad blood between Rex’s father and Gage’s family and Rex was crazy. Gage showed up at Mama’ Coco the diner where Amy worked. I was rooting for Amy and Gage. I loved the way their romance was built and I felt bad the way Gage handled  her being who she was. I just loved this story. I loved the ending.  I loved how Gage’s brother stood by him and Amy’s sister stood by her. This choked me up at times and made me chuckle at times. I loved the characters and all the ins and outs of this story. I highly recommend.

Very Hot
Hooked - Christina Phillips

Grace was a rich girl from Malibu that always did the right thing. Until she didn’t she was tired of her life being controlled by her family and now ex fiance. Grace was on her way to her sisters after she had broken her engagement and she got lost when she had to take a detour. Then grace’s car broke down there was a storm and her phone was dead. Grace ends up at a lo;cal bar called Odin’s and a lot of bikers are there one in particular catches grace’s attention as well as grace catches his attention. The biker’s name is Zach who is a Viking Bastard of the Viking Bastards MC. Zach was raised in the MC and is very loyal. Zach doesn’t believe in commitment or love but he loves his sex down and dirty. Zach and Grace have instant hot chemistry and Grace decides to go for it what can one night on the wild side hurt.  
I liked this story a lot. It was a quick enjoyable read but I really wouldn’t call it an MC book . Zach was a biker was in an MC but that is all there really is about the club no meetings or business or anything like that. Really just about Zach and Grace mainly.I don’t think Grace’s character would have just have sex so quickly with a stranger especially one so opposite her. But i loved the plot the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
