Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Highlander's Woman created a challenge for me. As it's the third book in the Reckless Rockwoods series, I had a couple of things that needed to happen. When I wrote Obsession, I knew that not every Rockwood would get their HEA. This posed a problem for me when it came to the epilogue of Obsession. I showed Louisa still in mourning, but at the time I wrote that epilogue, I didn't realize how problematic that would be.


The solution was to create an event that impacted every single member of the Rockwood family. It had to be harsh, poignant, and frightening. But most of all, it had to be something that would push Patience and Julian apart so they would have to find their way back to each other again. I believe I managed that while offering up the possibility of stories from the younger members of the Reckless Rockwoods.


Some authors plot out their books, and their series. Some are like me. We're what they call pantzers. We write by the seat of our pants without any thought as to how something is going to turn out. We're the rebels, the loose canons in the book world. We're cowboys pulling our weapons and winging our mayhem over all our characters. Suffice it to say, I'm pleased with my resolution to a number of questions about the Reckless Rockwoods. I hope you enjoy my solution, and enjoy Patience's and Julian's romance.

From the Back Cover

Enjoy one of the best Highlander romance books of 2015. This book is the third in a series of Victorian historical romance books that are filled with suspense, the paranormal, villains, and alpha males who hold sway over the women they love. The Reckless Rockwood series is a family saga about men and women whose motto is to never refuse a challenge no matter what the reason. Whether it's scandalous seductions, wild, wanton pleasures, suspenseful intrigue with ghosts or psychics, or tragedy of one sort of the other, each book focuses on one family member's relationship with their search for that love everlasting HEA.

I will start off by stating a fact, Monica Burns is one of the most talented and treasures of an author I have had the pleasure of reading. I mark my calendar for any future releases and try to have them the day of their release. The Highlander’s Woman was such a book. This is book three in the Rockwood series. If the reader doesn’t find this intense fast paced story filled with romance, mystery, hot passion, and magic more than satisfactory, there will be something wrong. This is one of the best heart felt romances I have read in a while.

With the heroine and the hero experiencing drama, forgiveness, and overcoming tragedies, the book will connect with almost anyone who has suffered from misunderstandings and heart break. I will not go into detailed information about the book other than to say these strong characters are eventually up to conquer any challenge life offers them. This story is not your run- of- the- mill fall in love and live without burdens happily ever after, but offers circumstances that many people will actually connect with.

Julian MacTavish and Patience met, fell in love, and married. But then certain circumstances and promises made makes it difficult to be completely honest and hold fast to vows made to other persons. Tragedy strikes and drives the couple apart leaving each one to deal with different types of scars that mar the perfectness. One faces death and the other faces a tragic accident that leaves them, in their own mind, less than whole.

Forgiveness to each other and themselves must happen to bridge the gap that grows ever wider between two people who love each other beyond measure. I will say that this is one of the best romances I have read this year and most assuredly looking forward to more from this author. I highly recommend this and any other release written by Monica Burns. She has earned a place on my auto buy permanent keeper shelf list.

Julian Mactavish sees Patience and falls in love right away. They marry quickly but soon he has to leave her for several months for business for his father. His father does not like her she is only half Scottish. Julian returns and to protect and keep a secret for a friend he has to lie to Patience. She knows that he is and before things can be made right between them. She is badly burned in a fire. She keeps turning Julian away she is badly scarred and does not want pity.He finally gives up on her . He is in an accident and loses his sight.She returns to take care of him at his sister's request but still loves him. His heart has hardened and a HEA does not seem possible. The secret will finally have to be told will it help or hinder them getting back together? The author is such a good writer you feel their pain and you want them to be finally happy. I have read many books by the author and never one that I didn't like.

I laughed, I cried, I worried about the characters! This book made me feel as if I were living the story with them. Strong yet tender, both characters showed how desperately they loved each other, but like life, it is sometimes hard to express your feelings. Monica Burns brought these characters to life for me. In a way that hadn't happened in a long time with a few other books I have read recently. I highly recommend this book! It is a book about 2 wonderful people, their love for each other and their discovery of how deep that love goes.

Monica Burns' books count among my favorites, and this one is no different. A hero that is the perfect book boyfriend and a heroine who is the perfect foil for him. A villain, or villainess in this case, that isn't a mustache twirling, mua ha ha type (which is probably a good thing considering she's female) but bad enough that you want her to get her comeuppance. The story is solid, and sometimes tear worthy(make sure to have a box of kleenex handy!). The only bad thing I have to say about it is that I wish it was longer. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Julian and Patience. Hope to see them again in the next Rockwood installment. So to sum up...I highly recommend this book.

The Highlander’s Woman is the third in The Reckless Rockwoods series but can be read as a standalone. I was looking forward to reading this novel having previously read and reviewed Ms Burns’ Mirage, which I loved. While it was no hardship to read The Highlander’s Woman and I enjoyed it, Mirage proved a hard act to follow. I admit to being a little disappointed, but I suspect that is more because my expectations were so high. This book does have some darkness and angst (which I really look for in a novel) but lacks the meatiness and intensity which initially attracted me to Monica Burns’ writing .

The story begins with the two protagonists already married and deeply in love, which is fairly unusual. But external factors start to sow the seeds of discord, and although they do not fall out of love, they begin to doubt each other as a result of the events that follow.

Patience Rockwood and Julian MacTavish meet, fall in love at first sight and after a whirlwind courtship, they marry. They enjoy a very sensual and sexually satisfying relationship but despite this, Patience fails to conceive in the first year of marriage and it becomes a matter of great concern to her although Julian isn’t half so hung up about it as she is. Among other things, her failure to conceive causes problems with Julian’s father. The Laird of Crianlarich is an autocratic and dictatorial man who took a dislike to Patience before he had even met her because he had already picked out a wife for his son, the young and beautiful daughter of a friend and neighbour. Although Patience is half Scottish and of good birth, she would never have been good enough for the Laird.
