Review: Tempest in the Highlands

Tempest in the Highlands Tempest in the Highlands by May McGoldrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'Tempest in the Highlands' by May McGoldrick is book three in "The Scottish Relic Trilogy". This is the story of Miranda MacDonnell and Rob Hawkins AKA Black Hawk. I have read the previous books but feel this is a standalone book. The other couples do make an appearance to help take Sir Evers down. Miranda has been helping her mother who had the 'sight' to see things in the future. But her mother saw that Miranda was now in danger. and made her leave her home. Miranda's mother and father was killed just days after she left. Once her mother died the gift of 'sight' was past to Miranda. Miranda is on a mission to find her twin brother and to try to stay alive. Sir Ralph Evers is out to kill her and get her powers. . Hawk has been set to find Miranda who he thinks will help him lead him to Sir Ralph Evers who he is to kill per Tudor king. Miranda takes to cut her hair and take on the life of a boy on Hawks ship to use it to transport her to where her brother is. But the ship runs into a story and Miranda ends up saving Hawk. At first Hawk thought Miranda was a boy but shortly learned who she was. This starts their journey in finding love and taking Sir Evers down. Very exciting, funny and so enjoyable.

Review: The Rebel of Clan Kincaid

The Rebel of Clan Kincaid The Rebel of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'The Rebel of Clan Kincaid' by Lily Blackwood is book two in the "Highland Warrior" series. This is the story of Magnus and Tara. I have read the previous book but I do think you can read this as a standalone book. We did learn in book one "The Beast of Clan Kincaid" that Magnus was really Faelan Kincaid the second son of the Kincaid family. Magnus was lost when his family was taken over and killed by enemies. Magnus didn't remember his previous family and only thought of himself as a bastard son of Laird Alwyn. When he learns from his brother who he is he joins in taking down Laird Alwyn to revenge his family death who Laird Alwyn was a part of. Tara has been taken by her guarding who is a very mean man to Laird Alwyn clan. Tara is to marry Laird Alwyn older Legitimate son who is also cruel.. in addition he was to marry her sister who now is dead. So Magnus and Tara are drawn to each other and both wanting to solve the mystery of her sister death. In addition Magnus wants to save Tara from marring his 'half brother'.
Another great book by Ms. Blackwood

Review: Devices & Desires

Devices & Desires Devices & Desires by Pamela Sherwood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'Devices & Desires' by Pamela Sherwood is book one in "The Lyons Pride" series. Please note that there is book 0.5 called "The Advent of Lady Madeline" in this series. This is the story of Lady Margaret Carlisle and Lord Gervase Lyons. I feel that this can be a standalone book. This is the story of second chance at love for Margaret and Gervase. Margaret at one time about eight years ago was engaged but he died. Gervase has always loved Margaret and thought to go forward with his love but finds that Margaret now has left and ran away to be married. Gervase did go forward with his life and became a very well known lawyer. But not all these years later he meets with Margaret again to find she is a widow and asking that he go with her to the family holiday gathering. Which he does but when they arrive it seem not all is what they thought it would be.
Can their second chance be more that a fling together?

Review: Naughty Little Gift

Naughty Little Gift Naughty Little Gift by Angel Payne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'Naughty Little Gift' by Angel Payne is the first book in the "Temptation Court" series. This is the story of Cassian Court and Mishella. This reminded me of a new twist on the Cinderella story line. But with a few hotter and more emotional scene. Cassian has some issue to work out but when he sees Mishella he feels drawn to her. In addition he doesn't like how he sees her being treated and feels she needs to get away from what she knows. So he adds in a contract that she must come with him for six months. Mishella is also drawn to him but sees also that there is more behind Cassian than he letting on. I enjoyed this book and plan to read more by Ms. Payne.

Review: The Rogue

The Rogue The Rogue by Allison Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'The Rogue' by Allison Butler is book two in the "Highland Brides" series. This is the story of Adair and Keila Fearn. I have read the other book but strongly feel this is a standalone book if you choose to do so.
Adair has traveled to try and find out information of his birth parents. Adair was left by his mother around age 4 and thought she didn't love him. But Adair is attacked and some how placed near Keila house. There she take him in to help heal him. Within a few days Adair is back on his feet but finds that he has feelings for Keila. Keila too had a sad childhood and had to be moved around from place to place until she is given Drummin House but with the speculation that she doesn't marry or it will go back to the previous owner. Which doesn't seem an issue until her feelings for Adair start to grow.
Will these two find what they are looking for? This was a good story and was easy to read!
