I've written over 150 reviews on various romance novels. I've never had my reviews removed for any other book. Each time I write a negative review on this book, someone complains to get it removed. I've seen every other negative review on this book removed, except one. I'm so mad that I was fooled into spending $17 on a book because of the all the glowing reviews. Readers have a right to read all of the reviews, not just the positive ones.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

This book was terrible. It has tons of editing errors that are so bad, there are times when you can't understand what is happening. When you can understand, you wish you couldn't. The story is BORING and REPETATIVE. The characters are annoying. The heroine spends the entire book balling her eyes out. ("Tears streaming down her face", "Her tear streaked face", "choking on a sob", "swallowing a sob"....) She turns psycho and hides from her husband, because she thinks he is her dad who abused her as a child. The "hero" finally turns her over his knee, in front of everyone in the castle, and spanks her for misbehaving. This was his way of showing her that his discipline will not be as harsh as her dad's was. There was nothing "romantic" about this story.

I know this is a work of fiction, but to say it is 'historical' is a HUGE stretch!! The way that the author portrayed life in 1296 is not realistic. The lead male character, Grant, is the 'Dr. Phil' of the 13th century. Grant should be a busy laird responsible for his clan at a time Scotland was preparing to fight against the oppression of England. (An ineffective representation of William Wallace is depicted in this book as the legendary freedom fighter appears briefly.) However, Grant seems to have all kinds of free time for therapy sessions with his English prisoner turned wife, encouraging her to 'share' her feelings/experiences. The leading lady, Tory, made repetitive dim-witted decisions that made it hard to respect her character. About 1/8 of the book was dedicated to dragging out every Christmas tradition ever heard of and boring the reader as scenes played out in words. After spending $16.95, I felt an obligation to read this book. If you are a history buff and enjoy works from authors such as Diana Gabaldon, skip this read. IT WAS PAINFUL!!!

I have never in my life read a book with so many grammatical errors. It was unreal. It may have been easier to overlook if the story actually went somewhere...

Well, this is the first romance novel I've read where the hero is just a horrible person. After kidnapping her he brings her to his home and continually humiliates her, setting food down and telling her to eat like a dog, he gives her disgusting chores like cleaning up after the dogs but gives her no tools so she is doing it with her hands ( gee-great romantic visual there), he allows men in his clan to nearly drown her in the frigid loch, and another time throw her against the wall causing her to become unconscious, he makes her wear a revealing outfit and watches her serve his friends who nearly rape her in the main hall during supper, but then announces, hands-off I've decided she is my lady-wife. The wedding night is special--he rapes her, then is surprised she is a virgin as he always thought she was a whore. This is not my idea of a romance novel. I wish I had my money back.

Newer author Leanne Burroughs sets HIGHLAND WISHES, her debut historical romance novel in Scotland and England, 1294. Along with an intensely passionate and sensual love story filled with memorable characters you will both love and hate, you'll find a plethora of historical particulars focusing on some of the famous battles fought for Scotland's independence.

Our hero, Grant Drummond returned to his home after learning of his father's murder and was determined to slay the man responsible. That raid led him to the castle of Gerald Blackstone, where he slaked his vengeance - then unbeknownst to him, kidnapped the man's daughter, Victoria (Tory) Blackstone, thinking her a servant of the manor.

On the that fateful night, Tory was attempting her own escape from the cruel father who detested her so much, he'd gone ahead and betrothed her to an equally vile man who'd already killed two of his wives. Determined to find true love she was thwarted in her escape by falling into the hands of a `dreaded Scot'. Sworn off of love, Grant would often in the coming days question his unusual decision in taking so lovely a captive - a captive who both exasperated him and was slowly but surely capturing his heart.

--- Written with an undeniable love of Scotland, and her history, this author gifts the reader with a passionate tale of love between two people who the fates graciously brought together. Tory was a seriously wounded young woman and the authors treatment of the healing love Grant brought into her life was positively brilliant. You'll laugh, you'll cry in this deeply moving, and fully robust tale of the many struggles towards happily ever after. This is a fantastic Scottish historical romance that fans of the genre should not miss!!!

I love Sue-Ellen Welfonder, one of the best Scottish Historical writers, but I was tickled to get this book as a gift for my birthday. Burroughs captured my attention and kept it from start to finish. This book has the style of old-fashioned saga historical romances. I hope this is a trend coming back. It's so hard to find these.

I am eager to read this author's other works.
