Her Vengeful Scot
Her Vengeful Scot (The Highland Warrior Chronicles Book 2) - Christina Phillips

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

I just finished book 2 of Christina Phillips’s fabulous The Highland Warrior Chronicles, Her Vengeful Scot. Have to admit I’m loving this series a LOT. This book also had its share of drama and intrigue, much like book 1. The stories are well-written and, as far as I could tell, well-researched too.

The Highland Warrior Chronicles is set during the time of Kenneth MacAlpin, arguably the first king of the Scots, around 843. He makes his appearance in both books, though less in book 2 than book 1. He wasn’t really someone I cared much about. You’ll find out the reasons in my review. He was also the king of now extinct Pictland. The author’s website has a short intro about the Picts and Pictland which I found fascinating.

Book 1, Her Savage Scot, takes place a few months prior to book 2. Connor and his men travelled to the Kingdom of Ce, a segment of the Pictland, with a proposal for the King of Ce from his own King Kenneth MacAlpin. Recently, MacAlpin , the King of Dal Riada has had this notion that he should be the reigning king of Pictland seeing his mother was a Princess. The Royal Lineage, in the case of the Picts, comes via the mother and not the father, so MacAlpin was determined to grab what he deemed was his. The kingdom of Ce, Circinn and the others were being ravaged by the Vikings. MacAlpin asks that the eldest Princess of Ce be married to one of his warriors with Royal blood, in this case Connor’s elder half-brother, Fergus. In return, he’s willing to be allied with the Picts and help them fight the Vikings. Quite a lucrative offer no doubt. Connor was tasked to make sure the elusive Princess and the King, with other nobles be brought back to Dal Riada to discuss everything. If all agrees, the marriage will take place posthaste.

Her Savage Scot
Her Savage Scot (The Highland Warrior Chronicles Book 1) - Christina Phillips

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Her Savage Scot, book 1 of The Highland Warrior Chronicles, had been in my TBR for a while now. Recently, when I felt the urge to check out some medieval Scottish-Highlander romance, I thought why not?. This was my first novel by Christina Phillips and it definitely won’t be my last because I enjoyed the book more than I thought I would.

Her Savage Scot is set during the time of Kenneth MacAlpin, arguably the first king of the Scots, around 843. He makes his appearance here too, but not really as someone I cared much about. You’ll find out the reasons in my review. He was also the king of now extinct Pictland. The author’s website has a short intro about the Picts and Pictland which I found fascinating.

Princess Aila, the eldest daughter of the current King of one Pictish segment called Ce, is introduced almost at the beginning of the story. A widow since 17, Aila’s life had not been the same when her young husband Onuist died saving her life from the marauding Vikings. At least that’s how the story is told all around Ce, where Onuist is revered as a hero. Just as her maternal grandmother and maternal cousin Elise, Aila has the same power of seeing visions and sensitive towards a coming incident through their Goddess Bride’s blessings. However, on that fateful day, Bride didn’t come to her rescue or Onuist’s for that matter. Since then, Aila had decided to abandon Bride and embrace the ‘new’ religion AKA Christianity. She’s also become a recluse, so much so that people outside of her closest kin aren’t allowed to see her. She doesn’t go out much unless the very close circuit of the castle and she has no interest in being introduced to the strangers who come to visit Ce. Hence no one sees her in attendance of any feast or celebration. She’s become some sort of a myth. It’s been 9yrs. but she’s not going to forgive Bride for her betrayal.

Ten Days With the Highlander (Love Abroad) by Hayson Manning
Ten Days With the Highlander - Hayson Manning

 

 

Georgia is out of her element and in over her head.  Business brought her to the Scottish Highlands.  Beautiful scenery, a brooding Scotland and a fiery attraction are just an added bonus, but when her heart becomes involved, she's forced to rethink her priorities.  Callum serves as the perfect guide for a romantic adventure. Easy on the eyes, fatal to the heart and addictive to the sweet tooth.  Ten Days With the Highlander is a trip worth taking.

Very gritty, must read story
The Highlander - Kerrigan Byrne

I got pulled into the story from the get go! With the previous books in this series, it is a gritty and dark read all leading up to an HEA. The pain of both Mena and Liam had me crying and cheering for them. As this was an audiobook, I found it hard to turn off my car. I needed to know what was happening next. I loved this story. I look forward to more from Kerrigan Byrne.

I received this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review. This is also s Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team selection.

Book Review For: 'To Love A Highlander' by Donna Fletcher
To Love A Highlander (Highland Warriors Book 1) - Donna Fletcher

'To Love A Highlander' by Donna Fletcher is book One in the series " Highland Warriors". This is the story of Espy and Craven Laird of the Clan MacCara.
Espy is the granddaughter of the clans healer and her father was a doctor of sorts. When she cannot save Craven's wife and child during the birth he is enraged. Craven almost kills her but turns to banish her from the Clan. Espy is heartbroken for the lost and for any hurt that she might have done. But now that time has past and with greater evil after her she goes back to the Clan in hopes that time has healed Craven's hatred.
Time has soften the blow some of his great lost but Craven was slow after first to accept Espy back. But with her being back has brought new feelings to him...will he trust her and his feelings again?

There is no question for me when I see Ms. Fletcher's name on a book. I know I must have it! Ms. Fletcher draws you into the story and you go through the emotions of the story with the characters as it happens.
Loved it!
