Great Story and Characters
The Highland Outlaw - Heather McCollum

Shaw Sinclair, chief of the outcast clan of Sinclairs of Caithness in northern Scotland, has made a deal with the devil. Despite his strength and lethal skills, he needs help—specifically from a woman—to accomplish his mission to bring a bairn to safety to the coast. When he meets the brave and beautiful Alana Campbell at a Samhain Festival, he decides she's the one. Alana Campbell is ready to show the world she's just as skillful with a sgian dubh as any man. Attracting the attention of the brawny chief who coerces her to join him on his journey to the coast of Scotland gives her that very opportunity. Sparks flash between them as they're forced to act as husband and wife to accomplish the deadly mission. However, when secrets threaten to tear them apart, they have to decide if their differences outweigh the reality of their feelings.

This was a really great story with plenty of action that kept the story moving. I really enjoyed Shaw and Alana’s story and look forward to the next one. I highly recommend.

5 Star Wyvern's Outlaw
Wyvern's Outlaw - Deborah Cooke


He’s pretended to share the Gloria Furore space pirates’ views and has worked his way up the ranks, but Ryke wants nothing more than to escape and go home to his young son. The capture of Princess Anguissa and her ship is a moment of triumph for his superior, except Anguissa never plays by anyone’s rules and she’s soon in command of the Armada Seven. Ryke’s not sure why he’s been spared or what plans the beautiful dragon princess has in store for him but surely he can manipulate things the way he wants them to go, right?


This ‘Dragons of Incendium’ story is one non-stop, thrilling adventure of a story with lots of sizzling chemistry, flying sparks and feisty attitude that readers cannot put down. Anguissa and Ryke are vibrant characters that stand out and really spark the imagination with tons of chemistry and feisty attitude that keeps readers very entertained throughout their fiery relationship. They are enemies and are forbidden to have anything to do with the other but that doesn’t stop the attraction between them from getting the upper hand even if they aren’t sure they can trust the other so there is lots of emotional angst and red hot passion to spare.


The plot is fast past with lots going on at every given moment, ensuring that readers never experience a dull moment and the thrilling suspense and nail biting excitement has them hanging on to the edge of their seat. Some new and unique story elements introduce another fascinating alien culture to this world as another dragon princess defies tradition does things in their own spitfire way.

Spirit of Christmas Past
O is for Outlaw - Sue Grafton

This book was a great look into Kinsey's past. We have heard offhand via the books that Kinsey was married twice. Her first marriage was to an ex-cop Mickey Macgruder and we know that Kinsey and he parted on bad terms. This book gives us even more information than what we were given before. Mickey was accused of murder and Kinsey bounced. She never talked to Mickey again after the divorce, but you start to see some glimmers in the man which probably is what led her to getting hooked up with her long-time lover Robert Dietz. This book does such a great job of developing Kinsey. She's like a pit-bull this entire book. Once she realizes that someone hurt Mickey and is setting her up to take the fall for it, she doesn't let go and her investigation leads her all the way back to the Vietnam War. 


"O is for Outlaw" has Kinsey at a bit of loose ends. When a storage vultuer (no idea what else to call the guy) calls Kinsey and tells her that a storage locker he bought has her stuff in it, he offers her cash for some of the belongings. Through that Kinsey realizes that her ex-husband Mickey has kept a ton of her things in this locker, but has stopped paying on it. When Kinsey gets her belongings back (l loved how she does that) she finds a letter sent to her which implies that Mickey was having an affair and was with his mistress at the time when Mickey was accused of killing some man. With that Kinsey starts trying to track down Mickey and get to the truth, which has her in the police's cross-hairs since someone out there is trying to make it seem as if Kinsey is part of whomever gunned down her ex.



Kinsey was great in this one. I think Grafton did a great job of showing that Kinsey was wrong about Mickey, and that her jealous over realizing the guy was cheating on her while married was actually understandable. You see her still feeling territorial over him, but also realizing that a lot of tricks she now employs she learned from him. At one point I did wonder was this book going to lead to Kinsey getting arrested, cause she seems to be dancing on the local police's nerves through this whole thing.

Other characters are fascinating to read about as well. Though we don't get any one on ones between Mickey and Kinsey, you get very good insight into him and what made him tick. You realize though the guy wasn't the greatest husband, he was actually a very good cop. 

Other people that Kinsey knew back in the day pop up in this one and that also helps you get a better sense of Kinsey too. She's kind of a prude is what someone says about her and I had to laugh at Kinsey's sense of outrage about that.

The writing actually moves at a fairly big clip. I wondered how Mickey's shooting could tie back to what happened years earlier and then when you find out what Mickey was up (investigation wise) I got even more hooked. It's a really fascinating story and there are a lot of moving parts in this one. The flow works from beginning to end and I really did feel a sense of sadness on how things ended in this one. Kinsey gets to the truth, but doesn't get to do a verbal amends.

Review: The Highland Outlaw by Heather McCollum
The Highland Outlaw - Heather McCollum

Reviewed for Wit and Sin


Shaw Sinclair grew up under the brutal thumb of his wastrel uncle who sold the Sinclair lands to the Campbells. Shaw takes his duties as chief of the Sinclair clan seriously and is determined to protect his people at all costs. His fears for their welfare are well-founded so when the chance to reclaim his lands and guarantee health and safety for his people is offered, he jumps on it. All he has to do is deliver a very important newborn to the coast where she’ll be taken to France. But when the baby is delivered to Shaw, starving and clearly in imminent danger, Shaw knows he and his trusted warriors are going to need help. Chance throws him in the path of Alana Campbell and when her problem-solving skills and kind heart show she’d be perfect to help with the baby, Shaw kidnaps then bargains with her to gain her assistance. Their journey is fraught with danger as they work together to care for and defend the child in their care. Threats they expect, but their mutual attraction is something neither could anticipate. Sinclairs and Campbells are enemies, so there’s no way anything could happen between Shaw and Alana. Is there?

The Highland Outlaw is an exciting, engaging ride thanks to its two leads. Alana and Shaw have great personalities and fantastic chemistry, making the pages of their story fly by.

Alana has a generous heart, a spine of steel, and a deadly aim. She’s exactly the kind of heroine I enjoy and I liked her resourcefulness and spirit. As for Shaw, he’s a chieftain desperate to save his people and will go to great lengths to do so. He’s also as protective as they come and has more honor than he gives himself credit for. He and Alana clash, then become allies in the name of protecting the baby in their charge, and then they become something much more. Their dialogue made me smile, their romance made me sigh, and the way they cared for their vulnerable charge absolutely melted my heart. I loved every bit of Alana and Shaw’s journey and hated it whenever I had to put The Highland Outlaw down because I so wanted them to get their happily ever after.

Feuding clans aren’t the only problem in Shaw and Alana’s way. There are also the men hunting the child they’re sworn to protect, whose origins I’ll leave readers to discover. Alana and the Sinclair warriors with her are outgunned and outnumbered, but I’ll put my money on these fearsome Highlanders any day of the week. And though I must be purposefully vague so as to avoid spoilers, I enjoyed how the secrets, questions of loyalty, and various plots unfolded over the course of the book. Author Heather McCollum balanced the action and the romance perfectly there was never a dull moment in this book.

The Highland Outlaw is the fourth book in the Campbells series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. I’ve adored every single outing with the Campbell clan and the Highland Roses School, where women are taught everything from reading to self-defense. Alana and Shaw’s story is no exception and I dearly hope Ms. McCollum has more adventures in store for the Highland Roses. Ms. McCollum’s strong, compassionate, and skilled heroines and the brave, protective warriors who love them are always a draw for me.

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

Mercenary And His Outlaw (Twisted Iron MC) - Kayce Kyle,Liberty Parker

Let's start off by saying this is a new authors for us and a brand New MC series and although I liked the character's I didn't love them.


The story itself for me did not engage my attention enough quite frankly I found it boring and even put the story down for a bit an picked it back up to read it.The story did not have enough romance,drama or excitement for me and for Mercenary being an assassin I found him to be pretty tame he didn't scared me one bit although I did love his humor an teasing as well as his sense of humor.


This story was just an okay read for me.Although I did like parts of the story in the fact that this nomad biker found the one women enough to put his wandering ways to rest and look forward to putting roots down.I also like that fact that Outlaw had a strong personality but, from the moment I met her her mouth just turned me off because she treated the guy saving her butt like the scum just like scumbags that kidnapped her although for Mercenary it was a turn on. Go figure? I would like to get to see more of Edge as he seems like he is going to be an interesting character and I would like to read his story.


Would I give these author's a try again yes but, I really think for a season MC reader like myself I need more alpha,drama,romance and MC member engagement in a story.For someone new to the gene just getting their feet wet this might be a perfect read for them.Bottom line is I think overall for me is that I just didn't feel a connection between these two characters or their chemistry.


3 stars from us
