Review: A Protector in the Highlands by Heather McCollum
A Protector in the Highlands - Heather McCollum

4.25 stars - Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Betrayed, sexually assaulted, and threatened by those of the highest power, Scarlet Worthington does the only thing she can do to protect herself: flee her home. With the help of her brother and sister, Scarlet has found peace, safety, and purpose in Scotland, where she and her sister are running the Highland Roses School. Scarlet is determined to never again be someone’s victim and she wants her students to be able to protect themselves as well. With her new brother-in-law away, the best candidate to teach Scarlet and her students self-defense is the oh-so-handsome (and stubbornly closed-mouthed) warrior Aiden Campbell. Scarlet and Aiden strike sparks off one another immediately, but each has a past that makes them wary of trusting the other. However, some passions are simply impossible to deny…

A Protector in the Highlands grabs your heart and doesn’t let go. Heather McCollum has delivered an emotional, satisfying romance with two incredibly strong leads who are impossible not to root for. Scarlet saved herself from a horrible attack once, but she knows she cannot rely on luck should she be threatened again. I loved her strength, spirit, intelligence, and her determination to learn how to protect herself. She’s clever in coming up with ways for her students to arm and defend themselves and by the end of the book I really wanted a pair of the hair sticks she designed. Her confidence has been badly shaken, but I really enjoyed watching her find herself again. As for Aiden, he’s a fantastic hero. He’s strong, protective, and handsome, to be sure, but what melted my heart was how he acted around Scarlet. He doesn’t even blink when Scarlet asks him to teach her and her students how to defend themselves, even when others are scandalized. He doesn’t know what happened to Scarlet in the past, but he’s always clear that he’ll never make her feel pressured or unsafe and that’s a sexy as hell hero right there. Aiden has ghosts of his own, ones that make him reluctant to trust his heart to Scarlet. But it’s clear that these two are made for each other and I just loved watching them fall madly, passionately in love.

Politics, intrigue, and danger are woven into the story, though to say exactly how would spoil the tale. I liked how these elements rounded out the story, slowly adding intensity until the action-packed climax. All in all, A Protector in the Highlands is a truly satisfying historical romance. Scarlet and Aiden make this story shine and their romance was wonderful to watch unfold. I cannot wait to see what comes next for the brave Highland Roses!

Hyperspace Shunt: "Protector" by Larry Niven
Protector - Larry Niven



(Original Review, 1980-07-29)



Some apparent anomalies in Niven's "Protector".

I am reasonably comfortable with Larry Niven's "Known Space" universe, however I have just finished rereading "Protector" for the umpteenth time and I am somewhat disturbed by the apparent incompatibility with other "Known Space" stories.

The Sheikha’s Unexpected Protector (Desert Sheikhs Book 2) by Leslie North
The Sheikha’s Unexpected Protector - Leslie North

 

 

Past hurts meet present danger when emotions get in the way. The Sheikha's Unexpected Protector is the dance of two hearts. Salari and Kalif are proof that every true love deserves a second chance. North spins a tale of dirty deeds, mending fences and moving on. Young love finds mature redemption, A highway of dangerous curves that will keep the twists coming and the heart pumping.

Audiobook Review: Persuading Her Protector (Napoline Royals #2) by: Allison Gatta (Author), Audra Cook (Narrator)
Persuading Her Protector - Allison Gatta

 

Audiobook Review: Persuading Her Protector (Napoline Royals #2) by: Allison Gatta (Author), Audra Cook (Narrator)


Luca and Ellaria are the definition of love. Gatta does it again. Persuading Her Protector goes beyond the fantasy of the fairytale and shows the power of love. Gatta and her Napoline Royals prove that love is not based on a title, but the strength of emotion. Cook lends her voice to a captivating tale of sacrifice and romance. I left my heart behind.

Release Week Review! Cowboy Protector (The McKenna Legacy #6) Patricia Rosemoor!
Cowboy Protector (The McKenna Legacy) - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Rancher Neil McKenna Farrell has none of the psychic gifts his sister and cousins had inherited. But when he meets Annabeth Caldwell, a worker at the Chicago rodeo where he’s competing, he “sees” her in grave danger! Then he and Annabeth are taken hostage in a robbery attempt, and she’s nearly killed. He’d inherited the McKenna legacy, after all.


When Annabeth becomes entangled in something sinister, Neil has no choice but to protect her. Annabeth falls under Neil’s spell, making her long for family and a love that would last a lifetime.

 


Neil McKenna is a rancher who discovers that he has the inherited the McKenna Legacy after all when “sees” danger facing Annabeth and he has no choice but to protect her. Annabeth Caldwell is just trying to make ends meet by working at the Chicago rodeo when she becomes entangled in something sinister and falling under Neil’s spell, making her long for family and an everlasting love.

 

This delightfully sweet and thrilling romance brings readers enjoyment by combining a suspense, cowboys and a touch of the supernatural with romance. Neil and Annabeth are strong characters that captivate readers with their ‘avoid the relationship’ romance that has lots of emotional turbulence and readers can easily relate to and understand where the characters are coming from while they reach for their happily ever after.

 

The story progresses at a steady to fast pace and keeps readers glued to the pages with the intrigue of not only the romance but with the danger that Annabeth is facing and when the couple work toward keeping Annabeth safe, readers become more entangled with the mystery of who done it as surprising twists keep them guessing.

 

This is only the second story that I have read in the McKenna Legacy series but so far I am quite intrigued with all the McKenna characters and the fascinating Legacy that has each one finding true love while amongst danger and intrigue, so I will continue to catch up with this series.
