Best Scottish Historical/Highlander Romance

Regan
The list author says: "Among my very favorite historical romances are the Scottish and Highlander stories. I read continually so I update my lists on an ongoing basis. I created this list only from my 5 and 4 star reviews."
On a Highland Shore
On a Highland Shore
"One of my all time favorites, this is the 1st in a 2 part series (Rivals for the Crown is the 2nd).  Givens sweeps you into the historical drama of Scotland and begins in the early history of a family that continues 9 generations later with Kilgannon and the Wild Rose of Kilgannon which I also recommend. You won't regret reading this one!"
Without Honor
Without Honor
"A REAL Scottish historical by a RITA award winner set in 16th century Scotland."
The Magnificent Rogue
The Magnificent Rogue
"Set in 16th century Scotland it is the story of Robert MacDarren, laird of castle Craighdhu and Kathryn (Kate) Kentyre, supposedly the illegitimate daughter of Queen Mary. Queen Elizabeth has kept Kate hidden but now commands MacDarren to wed the 16 year old girl. He will obey but he intends only a year's handfast. This one's a keeper!"
The Pride of Lions
The Pride of Lions
"Canham is a writer in the style of Kathleen Givens--well researched, sweeping historical sagas of the Scottish Highlands.  There are 2 books in this series, the Pride of Lions and The Blood of Roses and a third, Midnight Honor, related.  The stories involve the Jacobite rebellion of 1745 and the last two, the Battle of Culloden.  Unparalleled romances!"
If You Dare (The MacCarrick Brothers, Book 1)
If You Dare (The MacCarrick Brothers, Book 1)
"The MacCarrick Brothers trilogy is one of my all time favorite Scottish historical romances. Each tells the story of a brother and the family shadowed by a curse that suggests true love may never be had.  They include wonderful pictures of of England, Scotland and France at the time."
A Kingdom of Dreams (Westmoreland, Book 1)
A Kingdom of Dreams (Westmoreland, Book 1)
"Set in Scotland (and the last bit in England), it tells of Scottish clans and a powerful warrior who marries a Scottish laird's daughter.  It's a wonderful romance and well written set in the 15th century.  I think you'll love it. Though not Scottish romances, I also recommend the two related tales, Whitney My Love and Until You."
Beloved Rogue
Beloved Rogue
"Set in the late 16th century in the Scottish-English borderlands where feuds and rivalries went on for hundreds of years, it tells of Alexia, an English girl, and Jamie Maxwell, a Scot whose clan has been her family's enemy for generations. He takes her as hostage, ostensibly to ransom her but it is not clear he will give her up. A good read by a great author."
Laird of the Mist (The MacGregors)
Laird of the Mist (The MacGregors)
"This introduces us to a fierce and proud clan, the MacGregors, who kept pride in their and kept their name alive despite government denouncement. The next in the series is A Highlander Never Surrenders.  Well worth the read!"
Outlander: A Novel
Outlander: A Novel
"1st book in a totally unique and absorbing Scottish historical series that is told with great detail and richly woven characters.  Claire, a British WWII Army nurse on a 2nd honeymoon after the war, falls through a crack in time to 1743 and meets Jamie Fraser a wonderful hero whose love for her rends your heart. Highly recommended. Suggest you might read my full review."
McClairen's Isle: The Passionate One
McClairen's Isle: The Passionate One
"1st in the trilogy involving post Culloden Scotland and a clan trying to regain its castle. This is followed by The Reckless One and the Ravishing One. Highly recommended."
Rivals for the Crown
Rivals for the Crown
"This is the sequel to On a Highland Shore.  It is equally good and will definitely tear at your heart."
Kilgannon
Kilgannon
"1st in 2 book series, it's a tale of England and Scotland as a young Scottish earl courts an English girl of the nobility and takes her home to become a part of Scotland's history. It follows On a Highland Mist/Rivals for the Crown but generations later.  It's a keeper."
The Bedeviled Heart (The Highland Heather and Hearts Scottish Romance Series Book 2)
The Bedeviled Heart (The Highland Heather and Hearts Scottish Romance Series Book 2)
"Wonderful love story from 15th century Scotland...a keeper."
The Legend
The Legend
"Based in 17th century Scotland and England, this is the first of two books (2nd is The Destiny) about the MacCurrie twins, Jamie and Neil who live at Torridon on the Northwestern shore of Scotland.  This is Jamie's and Ellen's story...and of the legend that speaks of a time of war and 50 years of peace.  It's a keeper. Read The Destiny for the sequel."
A Year and a Day
A Year and a Day
"Simply superb storytelling from this master of historical romance."
Come The Morning
Come The Morning
"1st in series set in 12th century Scotland, tells of a young knight of King David I, Waryk de Graham, who won the "prize" Blue Isle and the fair Viking daughter, Mellyora MacAdin.  A tempestuous romance, it gives the history of Scotland at the time and the coming together of all who made the Scots.  Written by Heather Graham under the pseudonym of Shannon Drake."
Tempted

"First in a 2-book series (the second is THE BORDER HOSTAGE). Both are excellent!"
Highland Rebel: A tale of a rebellious lady and a traitorous lord
Highland Rebel: A tale of a rebellious lady and a traitorous lord
"Rich in history (late 17th century) it takes place in Scotland, England and Ireland. Wonderful heroine, Cat Drummand, who is an adventurer and a hero of many faces, Jamie Sinclair who has to learn to love one woman. Great read."
Conquer The Night (A Zebra historical romance)
Conquer The Night (A Zebra historical romance)
"2nd in the Graham Series...13th century Scotland the story of Sir Arryn Graham and Kyra.  I rated it 3 stars for some disturbing elements (to me) but include it since it's a part of the series to which I've mostly given 5 star ratings."
Knight Triumphant (Zebra Historical Romance)
Knight Triumphant (Zebra Historical Romance)
"4th in Graham Series...14th century Scotland.  It tells of Eric Graham who we met in Seize the Dawn when he was by the side of Brendan. Eric is now an outlaw, a follower of Robert Bruce who has been named king of Scotland but who still battles Edward, king of England, for the right to rule.  He has lost his wife and is ordered to wed Igrainia by the Bruce."

My Wicked Enchantress (Five Star Romance)
"Set in 18th century Scotland and America, it tells of a noble Scottish lass who, through the treachery of others, escapes to a lowborn life, living for the day she can return to Scotland."
Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, Book 2)
Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, Book 2)
"2nd in amazing series, this one at over 900 pages continues the leisurely saga of the love story of Jamie and Claire Fraser and includes the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Well worth the read!"
Desiring the Highlander
Desiring the Highlander
"7 books are planned (one for each of the brothers) but only 3 are out (The Highlander's Bride and To Wed a Highlander and this one). This is the best yet. While I still think the books are not yet at the 5 star level, the books are truly enjoyable."
Highland Warrior: A Novel (Campbell Trilogy)
Highland Warrior: A Novel (Campbell Trilogy)
"I have read all three in this the Campbell Trilogy (Highland Warrior, Highland Outlaw and Highland Scoundrel) and loved them all. They are better than her MacLeod Trilogy (see my other reviews). All three of these are strong Highlander reads. They take place in early 17th century Scotland."
Seize The Dawn (Zebra Historical Romance)
Seize The Dawn (Zebra Historical Romance)
"3rd in the Graham series...set in late 13th and early 14th century Scotland.  It's the story of Brendan Graham and Lady Eleanor of Clarin."
The Lion In Glory (Zebra Historical Romance)
The Lion In Glory (Zebra Historical Romance)
"5th in the Graham Series; early 14th century Scotland when Robert the Bruce is king, this is the story of Sir Jamie Graham and Lady Christina.  We met Jamie in Knight Triumphant.  This tells well the history of Bruce's rise to power over Scotland and the romance is a good one."
A Gentle Feuding
A Gentle Feuding
"Set in 16th century Scotland, it tells the story of the feuding Fergusson and MacKinnion clans and two strong willed young people who love each other but must deal with the enmity between their families as well as treachery from others. A good read."
The Queen's Lady
The Queen's Lady
"A tale of two Queens, Mary Queen of Scots, and her cousin, Elizabeth, and two people, Lady Gwenyth MacLeod and Lord Rowan Graham in 16th century Scotland and England.  Set against a tumultuous time in Scotland's history, this is a story of true love that never waivers.   Author is Shannon Drake (pen name for Heather Graham)."
Knight of Fire
Knight of Fire
"Sequel to Princess of Fire (see my Medieval list) set in 11th century England and Scotland, it tells of Bret, son of Alaric and Fallon, and a warrior knight like his father. King William wants Bret to marry Allora, the Lady of the Far Isle in Scotland in order to give him security among the Scots. But Allora will have none of the Norman. A great romance!"
Devil of Kilmartin (Highland Fling)
Devil of Kilmartin (Highland Fling)
"Excellent debut novel tells a worthy tale set in the 14th century in the Scottish Highlands."
A Dangerous Love (Border Chronicles)
A Dangerous Love (Border Chronicles)
"Unique historical romance. There are 5 in this "Border Chronicles" series set in 15th century Scotland. This is the first one. I highly recommended them notwithstanding some of the Amazon reviews. Small captures the time perfectly and the stories will draw you in."
Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband (The Daughters of the Glen, Book 1)
Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband (The Daughters of the Glen, Book 1)
"There are several books in this series. She developed the characters well, the clan/castle/keep life was believable and the romances enchanting. It's got the whole time travel, fairy magic thing throughout (which makes it less serious for me), but she weaves the mythology in well."
White Knight
White Knight
"Set in 1820, this is 3rd in a series and involves an arranged marriage in Regency England but the 2nd half takes place in the Scottish Highlands and shows the effects of the "clearances" that deprived the Scots of a way of life following the after effects of the Jacobite uprising and the Battle of Culloden in the late 1700s."
To Conquer a Highlander (Hot Highlanders)
To Conquer a Highlander (Hot Highlanders)
"1st in Highlander series set in 15th century Scotland. Good stories, great action and sexy love scenes. I recommend all three."
A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, Book 1)
A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, Book 1)
"The only paranormal romance on this list. Set in Scotland, Paris and New Orleans. Emmaline, half vampire, half Valkyrie while in Paris is attacked by a handsome Scot, Lachlain MacRieve, who is the Lykae Clan leader. Imprisoned for 150 years by a vampire, he claims Emma as his mate and takes her to his home in Scotland. She has no idea he will never let her go. A very Scottish paranormal."
Lord of Fire
Lord of Fire
"Set in 7th century Scotland, it is meticulously detailed and rich in the life of the times."
