Highlander Ever After - Paula Quinn

Great characters and entertaining plot made for yet another great MacGregor story in a long line of great stories following several generations from the same family.  This one follows the heir to the chieftain, Adam, and a woman sworn to marry him by the machinations of the Queen and future king of England. They definitely had a rocky start to their marriage but Adam is persistent and doesn’t give up on trying to make Sina feel welcomed on Skye, until they receive a letter from the new king demanding her return. At first he doesn’t seem inclined to fight for a woman that from the get-go told him she loved another, but distance does help the heart grow fonder and weeks after her return to London he comes to win her back. I enjoyed their story and I am glad that it does work out among all parties involved in the end. Sweet. Passionate. Exciting. And enjoyable all around.

Highlander Ever After (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs, #8)

The MacGregors: Highland Heirs #8, I jumped into this series at the halfway point but it was okay because each book pretty much reads as a standalone. I love Paula Quinn's writing style it's part of the reason I keep coming back to her books, whatever trope she's using she has the MacGregors make it their own. Another reason I keep coming back is that I love this family. The MacGregors' are warm and welcoming to friends and are just as fierce warriors as they are fiercely loyal to those who prove they are worthy. The family also has very close, very secret ties to Queen Anne so when she orders Adam MacGregor, the reluctant heir of the clan, to marry one of her ladies in waiting they have no choice but to follow her orders. Melusina de Arenburg was raised for court life she was a trusted Lady in Waiting and the bastard daughter of the heir to the throne; part of keeping her safe was keeping her unclaimed. Sina looked upon Queen Anne as a best friend and an almost mother like figure so she couldn't understand it when Anne orders her to the Highlands to marry someone from a very infamous clan rather than the man she wants to marry.

Sina is pretty much a spoiled brat when she gets there, acting like she's the only one who had her life disrupted, once she realizes they aren't the barbarians she thought they were and that her new family isn't all that bad she starts to open her heart to Adam, who she finds attractive as much as she hates that she does. Adam is nothing but patient with her, he gets aggravated and pissed off but he sympathizes with her and he likes her. Eventually they start to warm up to each other and fall in love unfortunately Queen Anne dies not to long after the wedding and soon enough Sina's father sends for her and she has to go back to London where the marriage will be annulled.

The second half of this book takes place in London where Adam tries to prove he's worthy of staying married to Sina, but under the disguise of someone else. Sina also along the way learns some very disturbing news that makes her long for Adam all the more. Normally I don't care for the books that take place in the King/Queen's Court with all those people and their power hungry machinations and backstabbing not knowing who to trust but there are a few exceptions and this is one of them.

Overall, this was such a good book. I hate to see the MacGregors go I really hope this isn't the last of them and that maybe the next generation will be up to a few adventures.

Laird of the Black Isle - Paula Quinn

Paula Quinn’s story telling is always epic, passionate, romantic, and the dialogue with its hints of the Scottish dialect always makes for a great read. I love her characters and her plot lines, and this one is just like all of the rest in the MacGregor series, epic and entertaining. Lachlan has scars, but they reflect more of what is damaged on the inside more so then what is on the outside. He couldn’t protect his wife and daughter two years ago and after going on a rampage of vengeance, he secreted himself away in his castle in the Black Isle with no intention of ever leaving. However, a messenger arrives on his door and says that his daughter is alive and if he kidnaps a MacGregor lass, then he will be told who has his daughter. He doesn’t know whether to believe it or not but the chance that she is a live is a chance he has to take; so he kidnaps Mailie and brings her back to his home to await the arrival of the man who wants her. What he doesn’t expect is a strong-willed, spirited girl who fights him every step of the way and has a sharp tongue that won’t leave him in peace. Mailie sees only a monster until she begins to see beneath his exterior gruff and cantankerous demeanor. When she finds out what motivates his actions, she can’t help but want him to find his daughter, though she doubts Sinclair told the truth. As they await a response to his message that he has her, they get to know each other and she doesn’t let him be. She forces him into the light and forces him to love again. I loved every second. Loved the characters and the storyline. The conflict and antagonist where strong and well developed. Paula Quinn paints a magical adventure set in the highlands of Scotland with characters that jump off the page and a plot that stays with you even after you set the book down. Loved it.
