5.0 out of 5 stars Nora's Run, 16 Oct 2003
This review is from: Taming the Scotsman (Avon Romantic Treasure Avon Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
When I picked up Kinley MacGregor’s book ‘Taming The Scotsman’ I expected a run of the mill historical romance. I was wrong; this book is anything but ordinary.
In the prologue we are introduced to the huge brooding Scotsman Ewan who blames himself for the death of a beloved brother. This tormented soul has turned away from the world and taken refuge in a highland cave. We learn of the reason why he is branded a murderer and are half-repulsed and half-drawn to the pitiful man.
Nora, unlike the dark brooding Ewan, is a bright sparking character who, like the birds in spring, chatters constantly about everything. In fact she does not know when to keep quiet. Chapter one starts with Nora, who has run away from a fate worse than death, hesitating outside the door to his cave... and that is the start to a well executed story.

The secondary characters give body to the story without detracting from the two main contenders and, as the novel is part of a series, you know that some of them will have stories of their own to tell. Fortunately the books are stand alone and you do not need to have read one of Kinley’s ‘McAllister’ novels to understand the characters in ‘Taming The Scotsman’.
Get this book and read it. My only regret was not starting earlier in the day, the humorous writings had me burning the midnight oil. I just could not put the book down.
