Book Description

Bridget Campbell has a peaceful life in the Scottish lowlands living in her parents' home with her sisters and training to be a piano teacher. Her life is turned upside down when her wealthy grandfather, Robert MacDonald, invites her to stay with him at his castle and become the lady of the house.

But moving to the castle means living under the same roof as Aidan MacLeod, a handsome highlander recently brought to the village to be her grandfather's right hand man. Although there's a mutual attraction, Bridget senses something sinister about the outlander, and if the rumors are true he's not to be trusted, especially with her heart.

As strange noises fill the night and then a frightening attack nearly sends her from the keep, Bridget considers returning home. Her grandfather needs her, but Aidan and the housekeeper would surely rejoice at her departure, leaving them in a better position to inherit the property. Bridget needs to discover the source of the threat and whom she can trust.

Resisting the Highlander is a sweet romance mystery set in the 19th century appropriate for teens and adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good clean mystery and romance September 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author has asked for reviews if we have read the book. I just finished the book. It is a short book and I really enjoyed it. The heroine lives in a small village with her parents. She has two sisters. Her grandfather lives close by in a castle and he has asked her to come live with him. There is a bit of romance and some mystery too. What I find with most first novels is the book is good and the author writes great stuff. Usually by the second or third the trash comes out. This short story is good clean story and can be read by all ages. Lets hope the author doesn't disappoint us and keeps up the great literature without the trash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irresistible Romance August 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Surprisingly good. I enjoyed this historical novel from beginning to end. It is well written with likeable characters and an innocence I wasn't expecting but enjoyed. I read a lot in this genre and look for details. I could tell the author did her research.

1.0 out of 5 stars Treacherous October 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Poorly written. The main character made no sense half of the time. There were typos in the book and the story was just awful. Sometimes they spoke in character and often times not. Did they even have morphing tablets in that century? I don't mean to hurt the author's feeling, but this was awful. I felt like it was written by someone that needed to take more writing classes. She could have spent more time fleshing out her main characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet love story! September 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A sweet love story between two likeable characters, Bridget and Aiden. Strong Scottish setting, replete with castles and fascinating historical details.

A fun, page-turning read that will find you rooting for Bridget and Aiden. Lovely story -- hope to see more from this author soon!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not an irresistible story, but good. September 3, 2014
By Pamuel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3 1/2 stars. It's a good story, but not great. The story starts with her love of music, which somehow got lost in the story. There were loose ends regarding that in my mind. What happened to her commitments to the students and the church -- did she just leave everyone hanging?

It is a romantic story, not graphic sex which I appreciated. It was hard for me to determine the time period.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lackluster, predictable plot November 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Characters need more development. Background details and character connections are sparse. Plot is disjointed and predictable progressing from major theme to major theme with limited detail or connections. Proofreading is deplorable, lots of missing words in sentences and several misspellings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wow... is the wrong word October 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can hardly believe I actually finished this book. There are too many errors in this book. They are very distracting. The story ia okay I guess. But the interaction and conversation are just SOOO bad. It feels very childlike written. I'm sorry I can't recommend the book, because I don't like to give bad reviews. Perhaps I just don't understand how this author's mind works!!

More About the Author

Marian McBride is an American author of Scottish descent. When she feels like honoring her roots, she plays her Celtic harp, but not as well as she'd like. Occasionally, she sings along, usually when she wants to punish her family.

Marian is not a particularly great Scot. She doesn't enjoy haggis or bagpipes, but she does love a good Highland Games, especially when men in kilts do the caber toss. She hopes by showing some Scottish pride in her writing, her clansmen will forgive for not visiting home often.
