I love discovering new authors and their books. The Honor of a Highlander is April Holthaus's debut book!
The story is fast paced, I really liked the time period! I loved her characters Rory MacKinnon and Annella;
the intrigue was well developed! It is a good Scottish adventure full of suspense and romance. Again, since it is a Scottish adventure, the story is about a beautiful heroine and an alpha male warrior! It's a good highlander read!

Review from Joe's wife: I knew this was April's first book so I wasn't expecting a lot from it. It also is not my usual genre. But I was more than pleasantly surprised! April writes in a way that pays so much attention to detail that I felt I was watching a movie. It was a quick enjoyable weekend read. After, I found myself speaking with a Scottish accent. Looking forward to the next in the series! Bravo April!

loved the book. I can't wait until the next one comes out... when is it coming out? The story was not too long and not too short just right.

I probably would've given this book 3 stars but then saw it was the author's first book and decided she deserves some encouragement. I really liked the story about a highlander who is on his way to join William Wallace when he meets the h. She is the daughter of a Laird who is determined to marry her off. She is a romantic and wants to marry for love but her father won't hear of her waiting. She meets the H when he comes to see her father and there is an immediate attraction. The H doesn't want to marry before going to war because he doesn't want to leave a widow if he gets killed. Despite all of this the H and h enjoy each others company and the H tells her that he won't take her virtue because that is for her future husband. So the H leaves the h's father's castle and soon after that the h's castle is attacked by the English, the h's father is killed and she is captured. She is to be tried for treason. The H hears about it and goes after her. There is a villain, there is a trip into the highlands and some hunky Scots. All a recipe for success.

+++Spoilers+++
I truly liked the fact that this author decided to honour the times and the only sex scene occurs after marriage. I liked both main characters. What detracted a little from this book is some sketchy grammar and incorrect use of words plus a few implausible scenes. I've never been a fan of h's doing reckless things like singlehandedly going off to fight the villain.

Good debut Ms Holthaus, I look forward to reading the next in this series!

I know this author must have been writing for years,even if this is her first "official" release.It is just too good . I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The characters were real, and the writing was terrific- I felt what the characters were feeling. Can't wait for Ewan's story ..
Thanks , April !!

I got this book last month. I won a gift card at FB party and decided since it was April who gave It to me I should get her book. I was so not disappointed after reading this book. It is action, romance, chivalry, funny, and lots more. I loved it from beginning to end. The characters are spot on, I can't say enough about this book. Why am I praising it so? Well because I honestly didn't think it would be a great book. So I was so surprised by it. I couldn't put it down, The book had me from the beginning to end. I enjoyed Annella, she is female but has a little tom boy in her. Rory is Alpha male but is so gentle when it comes to Annella. You will love this book.
