Format: Mass Market Paperback
A book of magical enjoyment. Karyn Monk weaves an excellent story round the two main Characters Alex and Gwendolyn both of whom a scarred emotionally by previous events in their lives. Alex is a man who will do anything to prevent his young son from dying. He is so desperate he saves a witch from being burnt at the stake. Gwendolyn is the young woman who everyone is convinced is a witch and who has been abused by their suspicions all of her life. Together they try desperately to save Alex's son David and in the process heal their damaged souls.
The description of 13th century Scotland is a bit iffy, but that little niggle is only because I'm Scottish and live in Scotland.
I have one request, could Karyn Monk write a sequal to this book and make David it's central character. He is such a sweet gentle boy and I would love to know what happens to him when he grows up.

This story is about a Scottish Laird who is desperate to save his dying son. When he lost his wife he also lost his sanity for a time, earning him the title Mad Alex MacDunn. She is a young lass who is an outcast from her clan, her mother was burned as a witch and she is also accused of being a witch by her clan. Alex hears about Gwendolyn Macswen and knows that she is the last hope for his son, so he saves her from burning. The problem for Gwendolyn is that she is not a witch and she knows nothing about healing but if she does not save Alex's son she will die at his hand instead of at her clans hand. This was one of the most entertaining books I have read in a long time with lots of humor and also a little twist at the end.

When I picked up this book, I didn't think that I'd enjoy it so very much. I've read a number of romances and I get bored easily if the few opening paragraghs don't capture my attention immediately. But that's not the case for the Witch and the Warrior. I was HOOKED right from the first to the last pages. Re-read it 2 more times before I'd to return it to a friend. It's that spellbinding! The heroine was fragile and yet strong and protective to her loved ones. The hero was everything I ever hope he would be...real, tough and vulnerable. And I love all the secondary characters (especially the MacSweens) who add lots of humour to the story. This is the first Karyn Monk's book that I've read and I really recommend it to other romance readers. Will try to find her other books while waiting for the next one (I sincerely hope so). Keep it up Ms Monk!!!

Mad Alex MacDunn, along with 'side kicks', Brodick, Ned and Cameron exemplify what's good in mankind and they do it in 'normal' ways, that any man could do. It's wonderful to see men portrayed as real men instead of god like creatures, as many romance novelists portray them. They have common conversations, and the wit and humor of Karyn Monk is great. Heroine, Gwendolyn, was also portrayed well, but can't we have a little less fraility among the romantic heroines, very few women out there are actually so frail that the men in their lives are afraid they will hurt them if they hug them too tightly!

Ms. Monk's last book "Once a warrior" was good enough for me to order this book. This one, however, is just FABULOUS. Romance novels, by their nature, are much the same. The difference is in the details. You are never bored with this book. I'm about to re-read it. The humor is utterly endearing, and I laughed out loud several times. Just a wonderful book. I hope there are more coming.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Suspected of witchcraft, Gwendolyn MacSween has been condemned to being burned at the stake at the hands of her own clan. Yet rescue comes from a most unlikely source. Mad Alex MacDunn, laird of the might rival clan MacDunn, is a man whose past is scarred with tragedy and loss. His last hope lies in capturing the witch of the MacSweens – and using her magic to heal his dying son. He expects to find an old hag…instead he finds a young woman of earthly beauty. There’s only on problem: Gwendolyn has no power to bewitch or heal. Now she must pretend to be a sorceress – or herself perish. Bun can she use her common sense to save Alex’ son, and her natural powers as a woman to enchant a fierce and handsome Highland warrior – before a dangerous enemy destroys them both?
A romance with warmth and humour – I could not put it down.
