Editorial Reviews

Review

"Highland Surrender features plenty of action, romance and sex with well-drawn individuals — a strong, yet young heroine and a delectable hero — who don't act out of character. The story imparts a nice feeling of 'you are there,' with a well-presented look at the turbulent life in 16th-century Scotland." —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars (Scorcher)

"Brogan's first historical, and it makes for a dazzling debut. If you think the cover is gorgeous, wait until you check out what's behind it. Brogan's writing weaves a 16th-century Scottish spell that long outlasts the final page. She provides a fresh and endearing slant on the arranged marriage plot, the history laced into the story intriguing and never intrusive. But it's the well-motivated, well-rounded and pleasantly unpredicable cast of characters that makes this book wholly absorbing." —Kathy Altman, USA Today, Happy Ever After

"You know a historical romance is a keeper when you daydream about time traveling back to that setting and meeting the characters. I adored this lush, panoramic love story and didn't want it to end. Myles and Fiona and their sexy yet dangerous world of medieval Scotland kept me spellbound all the way to the heart-stopping, thoroughly satisfying conclusion. I want more from this fabulous author—the sooner the better!" —Kieran Kramer, USA Today best-selling author of Loving Lady Marcia

"Treachery and political intrigue provide a well-textured backdrop for a poignant romance in which a young girl, well out of her depths, struggles to reconcile what she thinks she knows with what her heart tells her. A classic sweep-me-away tale of romance and daring-do!" —Connie Brockway, New York Times best-sellling author

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm a long time fan of Julie Garwood's Scottish Historical novels, especially "Ransom" and "The Prize", and find little else in that genre that's well written enough to be enjoyable to read. I received my Vine copy of Highland Surrender last week and loved it. It always takes me a few chapters to get into the flow of the story and the authors voice but when I did I was slowly but surely hooked. The story is the age old tale of feuds between the Scottish clans but with a refreshing new style, cleaner, more straightforward, and interesting. The story revolves around the romance of Myles and Fiona, their characters are well defined with depth and interest as well as great secondary characters, and the whole story rings true. I would love a follow up book about the very interesting Vivienne. The chapters are short and story moves along well. The writing style, as I previously said, is clear and straightforward and doesn't burden its reader with endless and mindless subjective ramblings as most Highland romance novels do. One reviewer mentioned that this book was similar to the style of Hanna Howell's, which I respectfully disagree. While it's a no brainer than few can write as well as Julie Garwood once did with her Scottish Historical's, this author's skill at story telling is superior to Hanna Howell's. A delightfully entertaining story and I hope Brogan can write her next one quickly as I'm a fan!

Format: Kindle Edition
I found this book to be a frustrating reading particularly because of how long it takes for the leading lady of the book, Fiona, to budge in her hatred of he husband, Myles. It isn't until more than halfway through the book that she even tries to meet Myles halfway in trying to at least make their marriage bearable.

Her initial blinding hatred of Myles, despite the fact that he was being extremely nice to her, bothered me so much. Because of that, the majority of the story, I wasn't even sure I liked Fiona and we're suppose to be rooting for these two to get together.

And in terms of Myles, who I did like quite a bit, it annoyed me that at the same time that Fiona is behaving horribly towards him that Myles is constantly being turned on by her because she's beautiful.

In the end, I enjoyed the ending and all the twists that were involved a lot, but for me they had come a bit to late. By then, all that I didn't like about this book outweighed what I did like.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It has intrigue, sibling rivalry and betrayal, love, and romance (complete with detailed love scenes). The storyline was gripping. I could feel the pain that the young and lovely Fiona Sinclair must have felt when her brothers forced her to marry Myles Campbell, the son of a bitter rival (whose father was thought to have murdered her mother). Naturally, she assumed that Myles would surely be the brute she thought his father to be. I was gripped by the back and forth emotions she felt, as her experiences after marrying Myles would seem to indicate that she didn't have the entire story.

The author, Tracy Brogan, weaves an intoxicating story, and I could feel the emotions of the various characters through Ms. Brogan's words. The storyline was intense, and I found myself staying up late into the night to learn what would happen next. And the romance! Oh my, it's been forever and a day since I've read of intimacy that stirred the loins as Ms. Brogan's words do in this story. It made this older woman feel young again!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm not a big romance reader but I really enjoyed this one. I can't say there's really anything new or groundbreaking in terms of either plot or steamy scenes, but it's a really sweet story anyway.

Fiona is forced into marriage by her brothers seeking to gain a truce with an enemy clan. After some time and some really affectionate scenes from her husband she warms her heart to him. There were plot parts which were predictable and a few that totally caught me off guard (that's rare). I found the book really hard to put down and even found myself wanting to re-read a few scenes because they were either very touching or quite interesting.

If you're a fan of Highland fiction you will want to include this in your collection. I do wish there had been more detail making it feel like more of a historical story. Parts of it almost felt modern or even like a manor England setting. I don't know how to accurately describe what made me feel that way, but it seemed to be less about Scottish clans and more about a Lord and Lady...if that makes sense to anyone.

I enjoyed it enough to look for more from the author, so that's a pretty high commendation from me.

I'm wary of arranged marriage plots. Sometimes they're done wonderfully and sometimes they're done not-so-wonderfully. I like Tracy Brogan enough so the fact that she was an author I'd read before, coupled with the mostly positive reviews I'd read, caused me to push away my doubts and go ahead and buy it anyway.

I regret it. Like others, I'm the sort of person who is compelled to finish a book, no matter what. I literally couldn't finish this one. I've never been so bored in my life. I drudged through half of the book in three days, a positively snail-like pace for me, since I can normally read a book this size in about five hours. I just put the book down and I literally cannot tell you who the hero's name was. I think it started with an M... maybe. I remember the heroine's name was Fiona, but that's only because she was such a shrew and so opposite in temperament to the hero, who said that he wouldn't take anymore of her shenanigans and then completely crumples underneath her harrowed visage at every turn when she does something stupid and he has to rescue her. He feels guilty for something that usually is never his fault and I couldn't read long enough to get past their antagonism towards each other in order to find if I'd like their relationship together when they do like each other. I haven't read a couple so unable to coexist together in years and that says something for me, considering how many books I read in a year.

This is one story I wish I hadn't picked up and I'm sorry to say Tracy Brogan will not be going on my automatic buy list. I'll be returning this for my money back. It's not worth the 4 dollars I spent.
