Feb 24, Rachel rated it did not like burrroughs Shelves: I’m apparently completely in the minority with this book, but I absolutely hated it.
The leannf itself was stilted and formal. The research is hit and miss – the general historical outline is correct, but for some reason, all of the inhabitants of the Scottish highlands speak English fluently The characters were irritating and utterly unlikeable – and their actions were nonsensical.
Her Highland Rogue
Tory is running away from her abusive father when she is conveniently picked up by Scottish warriors w I’m apparently completely in the minority with this book, but I absolutely hated it.
Tory is running away from her abusive father when she is conveniently picked up by Scottish warriors who will take her far away – only to spend the next months fighting tooth and nail to escape back to the family she was running away from in the first place. During that time, she hides her identity, convinces the laird of the castle to fall in love with her even though he thinks she’s just a whore, and turns nearly the entire population of the castle to her favor even though they’ve been bred to hate the English.
How she makes everyone love her is beyond me – she’s haughty and dense most of the time. Grant is the same – he treats Tory awfully and she thinks he’s her protector. She doesn’t seem to realize that as laird, he can tell everyone to stop making her scrub the floor and clean the kennel, and it obviously never occurs to him either. And all of this within the first pages. I kept putting the book down and picking it up later, hoping it would get better, and it just didn’t.
There was one very disturbing aspect of this book that bothered me tremendously. Others may not be bothered by it, but it was distasteful to me. I do not find the humiliation and degradation of the heroine at the hands of the hero to be enjoyable reading. While I understand fully the history between England and Scotland and the intense feelings of hatred shared by both countries at the time, I have read other similar Highlander books set in this time period where those sentiments were expressed There was one very disturbing aspect of this book that bothered me tremendously.
While I understand fully the history between England and Scotland and the intense feelings of hatred shared highlanc both countries at the time, I have read other similar Highlander books set in this time period where burruoghs sentiments were expressed in far less offensive ways.
That being said, and after getting past that part, I found the rest of the storyline qishes reading. I love reading about Scotland’s history albeit in this formatand the research undertaken by Ms. Learning about the Scottish hero, Andrew de Moray, and his significant role in Scotland’s history, was a plus.
I found this book delightful. I emotionally connected to the characters and sobbing through the story. It’s a very quick read, quite enjoyable and writes in old style historical. I loved how Grant keep protected Tory whenever danger is near. Apr 10, Karen rated it really liked it. If you enjoy Scottish Highland romance then certainly have a read of this one.

Esse livro me deixou com um sabor amargo O resultado foi um Shrek mal clonado. E como estamos falando dela Tanto que torci para a peste chegasse logo e arrasasse com tudo de uma vez. E justamente por esse dois pontos positivos que ganha as duas estrelinhas May 17, Red burrouyhs it really liked it. I honestly am not a historical kinda gal, but I really liked this story.
It is a little long but it didn’t stop me. I really loved the Hero. I kept falshing to Braveheart in my head. The only thing I can say was the Heroine kinda got on my nerves a bit because she kept running away.
That could very well just be me. Like I said I am not used to historicals and I know the ideals and what is proper was different then. I have already purchased the next book and I plan to start I honestly am not a historical kinda gal, but I really liked this story. I have already purchased the next book and I plan to start it soon! If you like historicals give it a try! Chocolate in Scotland in ?
Chocolate came from the “New World” to Spain in the 16th century. In it wasn’t rare and costly it was nonexistent. That said, I did like the book, it was an interesting and touching story.
I laughed, I cried, I felt anger.
The characters were interesting and relative. I would recommend this book to a friend, and would read another book by this author. This author is a good story teller. May 29, Ann rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Historical romance fans, Outlander Series fans.
I just finished reading this book. I enjoyed it and it was a good fix for me since I love the Outlander series. Got my fill of all things Scottish. It is a quick read too since it is only a few hundred pages.
