There were however a few things that disappointed me. I enjoyed the first story (Highlander's Hope) more than the others. It seems to come alive more than the sequels. It is professionally written with only one typo that I noticed.
In the 2nd book (A Highland Home) I had hoped to see at least a bit of the characters from book one, but they were rarely (if ever) seen. I forgot to make a detailed notes about this book but I found one thing quite strange in that there were 10-15 typos. Most of them were in a very short section of the book leading me to believe that the editor forgot where she was in the book and skipped about 5 pages or so... still an enjoyable story.
The third story (A Highland Heist) does have the characters from the first 2 books put in a cameo appearance, but again, this book is a story based on the expansion of one of the characters from book # 1. My primary complaint about this book is that I feel that the author should have gone into more detail about the kidnapping and the crooks, and what happened with those folks at the end of the book.
In all of the books, they seem to end quickly, fall in love, end of story. I wish the author had either expanded the endings more in each book to see a bit of how their lives went on, or at least did it in book 3. There are more books in the series, but it does not look like the previous characters are going to be in them at all either.
I would have preferred if the author would have given all the characters from all of the books a bit more attention. When you buy a book in a series you are hoping to see what happened with the characters after the ending (at least I do)...but each book is totally separate from the others, which to me was a disappointment. I wanted to see more about the characters from the other books interwoven into the books that followed. I suppose I was spoiled by Diana Gabaldon in her Outlander series which tells you from book to book what is going on with everyone. (It is also a Highlander series, and one that you cannot put down).
So while I enjoyed these books, I feel the writer could have done better....but then Diana writes books that are about one thousand pages long or so as opposed to a few hundred. You definitely get some "bang for your buck".
I wish more writers would take after her, and write intensive and long novels that totally bring you in and let you know the characters and read about their lives as they interact over a prolonged period of time.
Many writers these days seem to churn out short books, never giving their characters and their stories the intensity and thorough treatment they deserve.
I enjoyed these books, but I suspect the writer can do much better. She shows a lot of promise. I hope we get to see her grow and become a great writer...I think she has the potential.
Basically our h is a specialist security systems consultant and has been brought in to do the security for the jewel called The Highland Hope (the foundation for the story in the first book). The main characters from that book are building a museum to display the jewel and other stuff and need top class security. The H is a computer genius and has to work with the h to get everything in order. We met the H in the last book and he was intriguing enough from that book, in that he was gruff, a loner and badly burnt by a previous relationship.
The h initially is light hearted, a flirt and keen for a casual relationship with the H. I'm not sure why she grated on me from the beginning. I think maybe it was her whole approach that came across as men usually do, in for casual sex but no lasting commitment. She came on to the H pretty strong and was forward. It all changed when the H became interested in her too and he decided to get involved even though he was wary of getting hurt again. They both fall in love very quickly and it gets serious after a short time. They share their past hurts and disappointments in previous relationships.
Of course then it all goes to hell when the h's brother gets kidnapped and the h decides to shut the H out. Despite everything she knows about the H, she decides to deliberately hurt him. From then on I knew that the book wasn't going to redeem itself from it's rocky start. They break up and when the h eventually tells the H what's happening, he tells her he'll help but it's over between them. He won't risk another chance on their relationship. I eventually skimmed through the last 35% with more of the 'I love you but I can't risk it' crap going on and on an on and on. OMG I though it would never end. I'm not sure who I disliked more, the h or the H. In the end I simply didn't care and I swear that a relationship like theirs had no chance for an eventual hea.
As is my habit, I gave it 2 stars instead of one because it wasn't riddled with grammar and spelling mistakes.
Read at your own risk.
This is a warm love story set in the picturesque Coastal Highlands with plenty of local dialect and witty banter between a fun, sassy female lead and , sexy introvert Conall Stewart.
The story lagged a bit in the middle when both parties were so stuck in their past that they could not open themselves up to love. I think the author could have enhanced the story with some action sequences or chance scenes befitting the treasure hunt feel of the story. Also, the foreshadowing of the villain was far too obvious.
