Book Review For: A Chance to Love a Highlander
A Chance to Love a Highlander (Highland Chance Series Book 3) - S.R. Mitchell

'A Chance to Love a Highlander' by S. R. Mitchell is book Three in The "Highland Chance" series. This is the story of Elle and Mikel. I have read the other books but feel that it did help me to enjoy this one better but you can make this a standalone book. Also note this is a time travel type of story.
Elle and her sister Anna were separated and Anna thought that Elle had died. But Elle made it to MacDavrett Castle where Anna is with her husband Hamish. Mikel lives there too. Although they have never 'met' in person Mikel and Elle shared dreams. There they both got to know each other but when Elle shows up in the physical form it gives Mikel a shock. Mikel at first didn't seem to want to claim her but he couldn't stay away.
Exciting Story!

ARC Review Copy

 

Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringes using her supernatural abilities and street smarts. Freedom—sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar—is all she’s ever needed. But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey must submit to their training or be stripped of her gifts and her memory. Audrey knows better than to trust anyone, and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned a withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor. Even more disturbing is her desire to tear through his brooding façade and bare the man beneath when she should be focused on escape.

 

Corvin Wright values the solace of his duties and only finds peace among the birds entrusted to his keeping. But the council no longer sees a use for his unique gifts, and his sanctuary is in danger unless he can earn his place by babysitting a fledgling witch. The task becomes daunting when his apprentice turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for. Her fiery spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he’s built. As Audrey wrestles with her captivity and the bonds of responsibility laid upon her, Corvin must find a way to tame her wild heart before she breaks his.

This is my first experience with Gwen Mitchell. I had a delightful time diving into her Zyne Legacy. It was different and unique. 

 

To Tame a Wild Heart is book one in the Zyne Legacy series. It’s a fast-paced adventure into a witchy world. 

 

Empathic powers, evil sorcerers, animal characters, and witches are just a few of the things we are treated too. I enjoyed both Corvin and Audrey. We get to learn about their past and their magic. As for their romance it was sweet. I really loved Corvin. He understands Audrey, that she is as wild as the animals her cares for, and so he knows how to win her over. Their where also several secondary characters to enjoy and the plot was fascinating. We learn of the dangers in their world; both from mundane and the magical beings. As for the witch society I’m not sure how I feel about it, yet. I need more time in this world to fully decided. 

 

As I was reading I did have some questions pop up and they did get answered, but I also had more questions by the end that where left un-answered. 

 

To Tame a Wild Heart was a satisfying read and I’m curious to read on. 

 

Rated: 3.5 Stars

magic and meyhem!
To Tame A Wild Heart - Gwen Mitchell
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Audrey escapes from the asylum holding her and lands right into another kind of jail. Faced with getting free and losing her powers, or staying in the coven to learn all about her powers and the Zyne, Audrey decides to bide her time, learn what she can, get fit and healthy and THEN excape and go back for the child she needs to save. Corvin's mother is head of this coven. He tends to the birds and is happy, for the most part. Being given a novice to train, or losing his precious birds is a bit of a no brainer, but Audrey is almost as broken as eagle currently under his care. He's gonna need to tend this wild one very carefully. The overwhelming feeling I have for this book is this: Harry Potter for grown ups! I found myself comparing, at many points along the way, details that while not EXACTLY from the Harry Potter books, they have obviously been INSPIRED by them. BUT!!! This is not a bad thing, Its just what I need to say, and its all about saying what you thought of a book, and this is what I thought! Getting over that, though and I really REALLY loved it! Audrey is a free spirit who knew she could do things others couldn't but didn't know why. Corvin is a bit of a recluse and thinks more of his animals than anyone else. An odd pair, but since Corvin's mother is an Oracle, I'm sure she saw this coming. I loved Audrey's fight or flight response to most things, but having got this far alive, its to be expected. She does tame it a little as the book progresses but it never fully goes away. Once Corvin is made to see the error of how he'd been treating Audrey in his care (oh, not badly, not at all, just enough) he begins to see the real Audrey, the one who he falls in love with. There is much going on, and not all is sorted. That Huhlwen (I think that's how it was spelt!) has a hidden agenda, getting Audrey to tie to him. Corvin won't be happy when he finds out. I'm assuming that there are other sorcerers out there, and enslaved witches. Just deadly enough and sexy enough, with all the major players having a say, and you know how happy that makes me feel! Oh, and special mention to the side kick crow, who really should have had a say, cos his antics did make me chuckle! This is billed as book one, and I can't wait to read the next one! First I've read of this author too. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
