Oh, I admit the beginning of the book draws you in but then it reaches the middle of the book and everything fell apart. Throughout the entire book I wanted to shake her until her head pop off and stuff a sword down her throat. I know, kinky. She lives in this glass house full of tinted roses and can see no fault with her father and brothers whereas she nit-picks everything about Jaime. Jaime is one of those guys you like to have sex with but at the same time you probably don't want to live with him.
These two lovey dovies—hint the sarcasm—probably do deserve each other. They distrusted each other, can't seem to have a decent conversation without fighting and getting their panties in a bunch, and only needed each other for sex. The plot was so boring and predictable that it had me wanting to read my math textbook.
It amused me that McCarty made them confess that they love each other while they were fighting over not trusting each other. Oh, that's funny.
I thought "Love means trust. You can't have one without the other. If only you and your little girl listen to your advice. Oh yeah, Caitrina said she'll try her hardest to trust Jaime's and not jump to conclusion and vice versa. I can see why the love each other! Keyword: TRY. Ah, hello Ms. Blah, waste of two hours I want back with a vengeance. View all 6 comments. Apr 16, Laura rated it it was amazing Shelves: highlander-books.
She is fiesty, intelligent, a tad naive, and super cute. I love how she meets our hero Jamie Her brother takes off with his kitten, leaving Caitrina stuck up the tree with no help in sight A mysterious man on horseback who is at the clan gathering for the games rescues her and leaves her breathless Jamie Campbell, the Earl of Argyle's Henchman and cousin has few friends and a reputation for being the monster in the closet.
Really he's a very honorable man who happens to be related to the infamous Earl of Argyle. He has no friends among the clan Lamont, and yet seeks Caitrina's hand in marriage.
She is repulsed by her response to him. She cannot believe her father actually likes the henchman. Until she gets to know him. But will her pride keep them apart? He saved her from a rape and a fully engulfed castle fire, but she doesn't remember it. It takes a lot of sweet seduction and gentle patience for Jamie a supposedly emotionless man to woo Caitrina, but even towards the end she can't give him her trust.
When it finally happens, though, it is sweet, and so worth it. This is one of my favorite Historical romances of all time. I loved it. View all 8 comments.

He fell for Caitrina from their first meeting and she had been quite spoilt and rude to him. He asked her father for her hand in marriage but she hadn't wanted to get married and refused his initial proposal. Caitrina was like a shrew in the first part of the story, but to be fair to her, she did have an excuse: because she believed her entire family had been murdered by the H's brother. I had not expected to like Jamie as much as I did because when he was initially introduced in Highlander Unmasked he had not seemed very alpha then.
But the author revamped his entire character in this novel and I must say that I grew to love him more than Alec the hero from Highlander Unmasked. What makes this even more interesting for devoted fans of the Highland Guard series by the same author is that Jamie is a descendant of the studly Arthur Campbell from The Ranger.
I love this about Monica's highlander novels. I really enjoyed how the hero broke down the heroine's defences gradually until she came to love him as much as he loved her. It was nice to see a hero who was totally besotted with insta-love. Jamie also saved Caitrina from being raped by one of his brother's soldiers.
The aftermath of that experience had left her a bit scared to have sex with a man and Jamie was wonderful about that entire situation. Their initial sex scene was so well done: Jamie sublimated his aggressive masculine desires and was patient with Caitrina.
He allowed her to take the lead in bed because he wanted her to feel comfortable. It's rare to come across an alpha male H who is this caring and patient. Jamie also tolerated Caitrina's initial bitterness because he put himself in her shoes.
He knew that she was hurting because his brother had engineered the massacre of her entire family and he was never rude or demeaning to her. Jamie was the perfect combination of alpha and beta qualities in a H. This was a novel filled with love, lust and plenty of highland intrigue. View all 7 comments. Mar 13, Shawna rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Fans of hot alpha highlanders.
Still, hot highlanders and hot sex are reasons enough for me to read the rest of the series. Heroine is a bitter bitch. Not interested! Why is it that every book I see that has "Highland" in the title has to have a half-naked man on the cover? Not that I object to half-naked men in principle, but they're all starting to look the same The story is simple, but well told.
Caitrina Lamont is the daughter of the chief Why is it that every book I see that has "Highland" in the title has to have a half-naked man on the cover?
