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.
Rowan is an artist, mainly a photographer and has moved to her mother's childhood home after her mother passed away. She's looking for her father and has nothing to go on. She's been talking to Angus via email for a while as she made the move and he helped get the house ready. He's smitten with her and she's not looking for a relationship.
After asking around he discovers her mom left without ever coming back because she was terrified. He's torn between helping her and protecting her.
It's a nice read. Not one you couldn't put down if yo had to but still very enjoyable. And the sexual tension is hit!! Recommend this one as a great weekend read. I want to read the next one that I think comes out in April 2013. This is the second in the series and I am going to go back and read the first. The characters from the first book do make an appearance in this one :)
