A Scot to Wed (Scottish Hearts #2) by: Callie Hutton
A Scot to Wed (Scottish Hearts #2) - Callie Hutton





A Scot to Wed by Callie Hutton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love reading Callie Hutton. Not because of the dashingly, virile, yet rough around the edges hero. My fascination lies in the heroines who refuse to be anyone's damsel in distress. It's that fighting spirit that left me in awe of Katie Sterling. She's no wilting flower and her fierce determination is what shines through from start to finish. A Scot to Wed is a tale of passion that does not surrender until it lays claim to your heart.

Loose plot threads with some sweetness
Claimed By A Scottish Lord by Melody Thomas (June 07,2010) - Melody Thomas

I was pleasantly surprised with how sweet the hero was in this, pretty gone for the heroine once meeting and getting to know her.


Had some magical elements trying to tie in Arthurian legends but was ignored for most of the middle of the book. Some other mystery murder, hidden villain threads that were too loose to make a lot of sense and care about. The last 15%ish was about wrapping those up and I felt it killed the HEA good feelings a bit.


Wish this had focused on the couple more because they were so very sweet and good together. There was a scene towards the end where the hero arrived home after weeks of being away that nailed the emotion and heat perfectly.


Definitively worth a read if you can find it

Highland Sword by May McGoldrick
Highland Sword (Royal Highlander) - May McGoldrick

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Uprooted from her home after her father's murder, Morrigan has fled to the Highlands. There, with her step-mother, step-sister, and their husbands, they continue to fight to get out from under the yoke of the English.

Aidan has soldiered for England and now as a barrister, he fights to bring justice to his fellow Highlanders. With his brother at his side, he works to establish rule of law in this turbulent time.

Politics, entrapment, spying, blackmail, and love come alive in the highlands.


Her insides burned with sadness, and rage.


Highland Sword is third in the Royal Highland series and would work best read after the first two. The connecting thread in the series is Cinaed Mackintosh (Highland Crown), he is the secret son of Queen Caroline and looked upon by rebel Scots as to be the true king and savior of Scotland against the harsh treatment of England. In book one, Cinaed marries Morrigan's step-mother and thus begins her connection to the plot thread. The beginning of this and a lot of the story focuses on the turmoil of Scotland at the time. Morrigan's father was killed in a raid where rebels were thought to be meeting. The authors center the misdeeds of the English on the character Sir Rupert Burney to help draw a clear picture of what was happening at the time. Sir Rupert appears in all three books and works as a spy master for the Home Office and abuses his power by blackmailing and orchestrating entrapments.


Her feelings for Aidan Grant were beginning to confuse her. She wanted some distance from him, but at the same time she enjoyed having him near. She was attracted and yet still afraid. Not afraid. Cautious.


Our hero comes into the picture as he is chasing down a man he thinks has worked for the Home Office and Sir Rupert and can give testimony against them, therefore saving his current clients from the noose. The man, Robert Sparrow, ends up being Morrigan's uncle and the source of a childhood trauma, he raped her when she was twelve years old. After a scuffle in an alleyway, Aidan and Morrigan meet and Aidan is intrigued by this woman who gave him a black eye. When Sparrow is moved to the castle Morrigan is staying at, he's dying of cancer, she is forced to confront her past.


The political climate and historical setting is done very well, you're going to have to enjoy stories leaning heavier on the historical part of historical romance. I loved the character of Aidan and how calm, strong, and easy he was with Morrigan. Unfortunately, we don't get a lot of him and the political threads did steal away from their romance; they just didn't spend enough time together for me. Aidan was constantly on the move trying to build his case for his clients and Morrigan was stretched thin herself. While Aidan was working to defeat Sir Rupert in the courts, Morrigan finds allies and turns a blackmail situation against her to her favor.


With one sweep of his hand, he cleared the desk. Books and papers crashed fluttered to the floor. He lifted her onto the edge.


The emotions between the two were felt, even though their time on page was too fleeting and left me wanting more. Morrigan's struggle with facing her past was dealt well in that it wasn't the center point of her character, it shaped her but didn't define her and I wish such villains were done more in this way. Her thoughts and feelings regarding not wanting to burden her family with knowledge of her pain and not be a detriment to Aidan's budding political career provided some deep emotional moments. There was a lot being said in this series, governments utilizing the law and courts in underhanded ways was the main message in this one, and I appreciated the historical details and weaving of real people, places, and events. This had an exceptional hero who I wish had more time to shine with the heroine as their relationship was sweet and flaring at times. If looking for a historical series that will give you plenty to go off and learn about on your own, Royal Highland does that, along with compelling and loving heroes and heroines.

Why are there so many different Tartans?


Plaid is a truly and socially noteworthy example that is made of up intersection level and vertical groups or strings of hues. Scottish Tartans were truly made with woven fleece; be that as it may, today they can comprise of most different materials. The example is most vigorously connected with Scotland because of its numerous utilizations in the midst of war, and Scottish kilts quite often will highlight plaid designs.

This makes one wonder: for what reason are there such a significant number of various types of plaids?


The various types of plaids can be separated by shading into three classes: current, quieted, and old. These classifications just mirror the sort of color or shading specialist that was utilized to make the plaid. The hues themselves can run the whole way across the rainbow and have implications, for example, blue, symbolizing waterways, green for backwoods and prairies or yellow for crops, contingent upon the territorial foundations.

The enrollment and naming of authentic faction plaids started in April of 1815. Huge numbers of the individuals during that time had no clue what their plaid may be or what it implied yet were prepared to conform to the enlistment. Today, the plaid and "tribe plaid" is a pivotal piece of a Scottish family. Most Scottish families will have a wide range of plaids associated with their name, and a few factions even have official plaid designs. More plaids can be made and added to the rundown of faction plaids, however they should be endorsed by the group boss, and the Lord Lyon King of Arms, and afterward at last the Advisory Committee on Tartan.


Different plaids are accessible that have no connection to Scottish groups. There are plaids for families, people, regions, organizations, foundations, ethnic gatherings and memorial plaids for different occasions from the beginning of time. texture Tartans has a long history with the military, particularly with the Commonwealth, consequently managing numerous military units plaid dress garbs.
