First book in the the Highlanders series about three brothers. This first story features the eldest brother and the McCabe clan's laird Ewan McCabe. He's a widower with a young son, his clan is still recovering from a brutal attack 8 years ago by his sworn enemy. His young wife and his father were both murdered. His main focus is to rebuild his home and work to eventually have revenge upon the man responsible. He has no plans for a woman in his life. But all that changes when a young woman called Mairin falls under his protection in unusual circumstances. Mairin has spent her whole life up till now hidden away in a convent. With no experience of the outside world especially men she's determined to live her life on her own terms, and there's no way she's taking orders from Ewan McCabe.

I love this particular genre, and this story held my attention from the first page, filled with fully rounded characters and a fast moving plot I loved it. Mairin drives Ewan to distraction defying his orders at every turn. She hides her identity from him, no one can know who she is. When the truth does come to light Ewan has no option but to keep her from leaving his keep.

I really liked the relationship between the two of them, Mairin is feisty and brave, Ewan is not used to having anyone challange his authority. But when they eventually come together the love scenes are passionate and sensuous. It was easy to feel the connection between them. I am definitely reading the next two books featuring the other two brothers.

this story is set amongst the feuding clans of 12th Century Scotland. The plot is a strong one with strong captivating characters. Mairin Stuart is the illegimate daughter of a king and Niece to King David. Neamh Alainn is her inheritance which would give great power to any clan into which she marries. Abducted by the cruel Cameron laird she escapes and takes with her another captive, Crispen the son of Laird Ewan Mc Cabe. Ewan Mc Cabe is a powerful man who is repairing his army and home. He really needs the legacy. Ewan is strong, with a short temper. Aislinn is fiery and independent. Can a marriage between them be possible? Is Aislinn what the clan needs? Is she more trouble than she is worth? The story is exciting, sometimes brutal and also at times amusing. There are some scenes when I wished ****** had been used but I suppose it lives up to its title. I really enjoyed it.

I've not read many highlander books but if they're anything like this one I'll definitely be reading more in the future. Mirian was so headstrong and determined in everything she did that you can't help but love her. Ewan was such an engaging character and so fierce, protective and loving all at the same time. They made a brilliant couple. I liked all the characters and the story set a good pace. Great ending too. Recommend.

Arrived promptly, in good condition, reasonable price. This set of books is a really good read and I would unreservedly recommend the set to anyone who loves history and romance. The authoress has done her research and they all slot together perfectly. You need the entire set to appreciate the work that has gone into these books but they are so good you can't wait to read the next one. Just get them in the right order though so as not to confuse yourself. Absolutely loved reading them and was so sad when I got to the end

Having seen nothing but glowing, usually 5-star, reviews for this trilogy from my fellow book buddies, my expectations going into it were through the stratosphere. I thought it was set to be the best Highlander romance I'd ever read (and I've read one or two). And I have to say that although I wasn't quite as amazed as I anticipated, no doubt due to my overly high expectations, it is one of the better ones I've read and will join the handful that I would recommend as a good examples of the genre.

The characters were nice which is the first and most important thing to contend with in any romance novel for me. You just can't enjoy a romance if you dislike one or both of the main characters, or if you like them but then they do something you find unforgivable- that's often even more disappointing. Obviously, this being a historical, you have to make allowances for the accepted social behaviours of the time. The way women were treated and viewed by men and vice versa. And also, our male lead here is the Laird of the clan, which brings in a whole 'nother heap of responsibilities and a requirement for obeisance from the lady.

I am so glad I was born when I was. I would NOT fare well in 12th century Scotland. This is a simple, undeniable fact.

I really liked Mairin's character. Her stubbornness, her fierce protective motherly instincts to a child that wasn't her own and that she'd only just met. And she made me smile with her misguided attempts at telling Ewan about the do's and don't's of "loving" from the wealth of knowledge she'd garnered from a nun during her decade long sequestration.

"She said nothing the entire time she was with you? Let nothing slip? Think, Alaric. She had to have said something.
