I first heard of this author and this book when I was in a discussion about another book. At first, I was annoyed that the author was self-promoting in a discussion because this is my pet peeve. But then something made me take a look at the book and boy am I glad I did. I purchased it immediately and began reading it that same day. Now two weeks later, I have bags under my eyes from lack of sleep, my house is a mess, my errands are mostly undone, I blew off my friends 2 weekends in a row and been late to work. But I have read all 5 volumes and all I can say is "I want more !!" This series is awesome and I could not put the Kindle down. I feel like I have lost friends now that I have finished the 5th volume. This entire series as a whole is so wonderful but because this review is about this Volume, I will attempt to keep my remarks to this book.

When I first purchased this (Volume 1) and started reading, the book did not grab me because I could not really see where the story was going. I felt like the author rushed the story to get to the ending. Quite often, something happens or a character has knowledge he or she should not have. It was like the author was so excited to get the story out that she skipped some steps or becasue the story was so clear in her mind, she did not realize we might miss something. Also, the editing is pretty bad and there are lots of grammatical and spelling errors. These sometimes brought me out of the story. And, the heroines seemed to do alot of giggling even when this was not appropriate to the situation. These are the reasons for the loss of a star for this awesome book.

I was not impressed with Anna's story. It seemed silly and unrealistic.

I did not expect too much from this book. I got it for a discount and was looking for something easy to read that I didn't have to think too much about. Even so, this book is a disappointment. The dialog is choppy, the characters mostly bland and formless, and the book is filled with unnecessary scenes. By this I mean that a scene should show some plot progression. Half of the scenes in this book don't even do that.

Another annoying part of this book was the pacing, which was too quick when developing the main plot and too slow when getting through tedious scenes as though the idea was not properly edited or planned out. Half the time it seems like the author forgot there was meant to be a story. Random characters switch points of view from paragraph to paragraph which leaves you fed up of the story before anything has happened.

The story is also ridiculously unbelievable, from a man being allowed to keep his wife chained to a bed forever to the King of England miraculously appearing for no good reason in the flesh and seemingly alone somewhere in the Scottish highlands. It takes characters seconds to travel long distances but pages to tackle a set of stairs. And of course there is the love at first sight, but its underdeveloped and poorly handled here.

There's the potential for some good stories from this author, but the delivery is so bad the story hardly exists at all. I hope in the future for some better storytelling because the story that should have been told here got lost somewhere along the way. Even for a book that was meant to be a mindless read it was tedious to get through.

This review will really encompass all of the Highlander Series because I think you will find it quite difficult to stop at just one! These are wonderful stories that instantly pull you into the life of the characters. You will outright giggle at times and will literally cry at others. I tend to typically not enjoy short "novella" type stories, because it never feels like there is enough time to tell a full story, but that is not the case here. Each story is beautiful and complete on each own and they flow together easily. I loved being able to know what all of the "old" characters were doing as they were revisited in many of the following stories. You will love these people and will find yourself hurting when they hurt and wondering what creative solution they will have to each problem they face. You will miss them when the series is over. There is only one other author whose books I can say that about!
The series does need an editor - what should be "patience" is often "patients", "being" was often "begin", etc. It is mildly distracting from the flow of the stories, but don't let it stop you from reading them.

Fiction, romance,Christian, historical- I would definitely recommend this book. From a distance Kevin MacGreagor, laird of the MacGreagor Clan, sees a beautiful girl with long, dark hair in a meadow with the most magnificent black horse he's ever seen. It looks as if the huge horse is about to run her down and at the last moment she grabs the horses mane and swings up on his back. She rides into the woods and Kevin tries to find her. Will he ever find the mysterious woman on the horse or will he be forced to marry someone he's never met in order to have sons? The novel is broken down into 3 short stories that progress through generations of MacGreagor's. I loved the romance in this story and it's great to read a romance without a lot of R rated details. This is the second time I've read this book. I loved the entire series and couldn't put them down.
Read The Viking first and then read Book 1 in the Highlander Series.

More About the Author

www.martitalbott.com

After I retired in 2010, I had lots of time on my hands, so I started writing ANNA and just for fun, posted the story on my website for people to read free. ANNA, typos and all, was a huge success, so I wrote the story of Anna's little sister, Rachel, and a third story called Charlet. Charlet was the most fun to write, and after her story, came seventeen more stories of life, laughter and love in the MacGreagor Clan.

I then divided the twenty stories into five volumes and published them as Kindle books. Like my readers, I could not say goodbye to my characters, so after the first five, I wrote nine more novels, bringing the total to fourteen. The Viking is a prequel to the series. Now, and to my amazement, my Highlander Series is being read all over the world.

Before my grandparents passed, they wrote a journal about their courtship in the early 1900's. Thus, Marblestone Mansion (The Scandalous Duchess Series) was born. There are now ten books in that series.

Seattle Quake 9.2 was written years ago and since then I have added two more books to the Jackie Harlan Mysteries. The Carson Series was already written before I retired.
