The Reluctant Highlander: A Highland Romance (The Highland Series) - Amanda Scott
The Reluctant HighlanderThe Reluctant Highlander by Amanda Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'The Reluctant Highlander' by Amanda Scott is the story of Lady Fiona Ormiston and Sir Adham MacFinlagh.
Fiona has been ordered by the King to Marry Adham. Fiona has been comfortable with the life she has but goes along with the Marriage. Although Adham is totally different than any one she is used to being around. Adham is finding that he is starting to have feelings for his new wife. This was a story of strangers marrying as requested and slowly starting to learn about the other as their days go on. Each thinking something of the other when meeting and going into this marriage...but then that previous preconception starting to change. Later though they are put to the test again when it is thought that Adham family might have ties to the enemy.
Overall found this book to be very good.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Comical & Heartfelt Highland Romance
Kill or Be Kilt (Highland Spies) - Victoria Roberts

What fun! Kill or Be Kilt was a Highland novel with intrigue, fun family dynamics, and a romance that had been simmering away for about three years. Elizabeth and Ian finally dealt with their chemistry head-on and the results were well worth the wait.

“Gradh geal mo chridhe.”
She have him a look of amusement. “Gaelic, Laird Munro?”
He briefly closed his eyes and prayed for strength. “I needed to say the words in my own tongue first because I needed to find the courage to say…” He lifted his hand and gently brushed his fingers against her cheek. “Ye’re the bright love of my heart, Elizabeth.”

Although this can be read as a standalone, if you’ve read any of the other novels in the Highland Spies series you’ve undoubtedly seen the attraction between our hero and heroine. Grouchy Laird Munro and lovely Lady Elizabeth had been circling each other for a while so here we finally got to see how things would pan out for them.

The Pack is growing.....
Snow Wolf: A Highland shifter romance (Volume 3) - Ruby Fielding

I received an ARC of 'Snow Wolf' from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

I couldn't wait to start reading this book, I wanted to find out if Billy, Jenny, Iain & Skye find peace. Once again, I was quickly thrust into the Scotish highlands & into the lives of some characters I remember from 'Rogue Male' & 'Last Alpha'. This is book 3 in the "A Highland Shifter" series, I strongly recommend reading this series in chronological order.

Set in the same small town, we get to see how Iain & Jenny are slowly getting used to being shifters now, Billy is coaxing them in their training, Skye is still in college, but travelling to Iain whenever he has a particularly bad day. I was drawn into how their lives had changed since the pack became 3 & not just 2. I especially liked how you could read the struggle with balancing your human & your wolf. One moment your wolf wants to shift & the next, you feel like if you do...something bad may happen. Such a confusing time, when just recently there was only ever one. I really don't want to give anything of this storyline away.

I really loved what was going on in this story, & can't wait to read what comes next from Ruby Fielding.

Another wicked book in the Highland Shifter series!
Rogue Male: A Highland shifter romance (Volume 2) - Ruby Fielding

I received an ARC of 'Rogue Male' from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

Upon starting this book, I was quickly thrust into the Scotish highlands & into the lives of some characters I remember from 'Last Alpha'. This is book 2 in the "A Highland Shifter" series, I strongly recommend reading book 1 'Last Alpha' before you start 'Rogue Male'.

Set in the same small town, but meeting new characters, listening (well in my head) to that Scotish brogue.... I was drawn into the book, experiencing the akwardness of that first kiss, the wondering if a certain someone likes me... What turns out to be a weekend surprise visit to a friend, turns into a whirlwind of possible love, new friendships, learning a towns secrets, changes... I'm not going to spoil anything for you, so you'll just have to read it your self.

I really loved this book, can't wait for the next in the series!

Historical Accuracy in Romance novels - Love it, Hate it or Don’t care?

I’m a huge fan of Historical Romance fiction with a particular penchant for the Scottish Highlander.  That’s just me and I’m not ashamed of it.  Gruff and manly and written with a scottish brogue are my absolute favourite hero's.

Putting the Hero’s looks aside, I mostly enjoy a novel if the historical accuracy is pretty much there.  Like framing a sentence a certain way, or the characters sensibilities should acknowledge events/actions be done a certain way for the period.  I don't mind if the date an event happened is 25 years later than when it actually happened, but I do like to read about how life was while I imagine the romance between the 2 main characters.

A few of my favourite authors who do this really well are Diana GabaldonSuzi Love and Tea Cooper.  Their respective websites and blogs are littered with interesting tidbits of their research or extracts from their books and where they found that bit of info from to give more insight into their stories.

My current novel, Undercover Highlander, started out as a contemporary romance and then quite quickly morphed into a part historical, part paranormal, part contemporary romance.  The present day is impacted very strongly by the past which started in the Scottish Highlands around the time of the celts and picts.  

I began to research the time period and ended up on a very exciting journey through the Scottish Highlands to a small remote Scottish Island, Orkney.

My story has earth magic, evil who want the magic Jade Trio (a ring, amulet and wand) and the clan that moves to Orkney in the hopes of keeping the Jade Trio hiding places secret until Seraphina can locate them again.  Seraphina is a strong witch destined to save the Jade Trio from the hands of evil, who would use them for well, evil.  She is transported to the present day when the fates have deemed the time is right for her to be reborn and find the Jade Trio from their hiding places.  With the help of her twin sister, Merida, the Jade Coven was formed to ensure the legacy and secret hiding places were handed down through the centuries until the time was right for Seraphina to find them again.  The guardianship of the Jade Witch is also a position within the coven that is handed down through the centuries to a warrior descended from the clan.  He must find her in each of her incarnations and protect her through her mission to find the Jade Trio.  Unfortunatley Blaxor, who tried to steal the Jade Trio originally, the seriously evil guy, also ensures his bloodline will continue through the centuries to search and find the Jade Witch and then the Jade Trio.  He knows only she can lead them to the Jade Trio and only she can bring their magic to life again.  Then they can be his ....

 

 

 

How about you?  Do you like to know that the style of dress is exact for the period, or just something that seems like it is.
