    HEA for Now.

    The story idea was pretty awesome, especially with actual history included in the story. Cinaed was a strong hero who would do anything to protect his people. Isabella slowly developed into an extremely strong woman who knew what she believed in. What I was disappointed in was how the story ended. It's not a cliffhanger exactly, it's a "Happily Ever After-for now" ending with unresolved major parts of the story. The part after the book says we'll get the rest of the story in the next 2 books which are about the girls. Sadly this is my biggest pet peeve when reading. Thank you NetGalley for the advanced readers copy.

    Love that Scottish accent

    The narrators for this are outstanding!! HIGHLAND CROWN by May McGoldrick is an fascinating historical Scottish Romance with well-developed character including a strong woman and a devilishly handsome, fierce hero. There’s plenty of drama and suspense to keep readers in the edge of their seat, reading straight through to the end. 5 Star

    I Loved It

    Dr. Isabella Drummond is on the run from just about everyone. Her husband was a revolutionary and since his death the authorities want to catch her to find out who his accomplices are, and the revolutionists want to kill her to make sure she never talks. She managed to send her younger sister and her stepdaughter to safety with a friend and is now hiding until she can safely get them all out of the country. Captain Cinaed Mackintosh smuggles arms into Scotland from Canada several times a year, but this time a storm changes his plans. This is a very exciting and dangerous journey through a Scotland that is suffering under tryanny. The people are broken and starving. Nobody can be trusted to look after anyone except themselves. Our brave heroine will always put the safety and health of others over her own. Our hero is a born leader and incredibly strong. An action packed story I couldn't put down. I loved it.

    Scottish historical romance

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Many thanks to the author and for this opportunity. I rarely give out a 5 star rating, for me a book must be outstanding and riveting to achieve high praise. Highland Crown by May McGoldrick has moved into that rare category. An astounding amount of research must have happened to mix fiction and history so seamlessly. I'm interested in learning more about "The Rising" thanks to the author. Highland Crown refers to a ships name and also a mysterious part of the plot. We start with a dying Sir Walter Scott lamenting his part in the downfall of an autonomous Scotland. His reminiscing leads us into this heartrending tale. Set in 1820 Scotland we're in what is called "The Rising", protests across the country for freedom from England. Pockets of activists, called reformers, stage work stoppages which makes the British very angry, it's considered treason. They ride in with guns blazing to "contain" the rable-rousers which really means death. We have our hero, Cinaed MacKintosh, something of a privateer and loyal to his country. He's referred to as the "Son of Scotland". He loses his ship and cargo along a costal town where Isabella Murray Drummond is hiding out. Thanks to her late husband, our heroine is fleeing not only the British but also the reformers. The bounties on her head are astronomical. These 2 are thrown together by circumstances, there's strength in numbers. The attraction is instant, you know fate has brought them to each other, ah cupid. I'll not include any spoilers so you can enjoy this wonderful tale yourself. Highland Crown is the first in a trilogy and is available April 30,2019, Highland Jewel will be next up. I'll be waiting. Happy reading. #HighlandCrown #MayMcGoldrick #StMartin'sPress #historicalromance #NetGalley

    Not the best introduction to the author.

    I received an eARC at no cost from the author, in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. Thank you. 2.25* This was the first book I’ve read of May McGoldrick (whom is actually two people) and, sadly, it just wasn’t it for me. I really wanted to like the characters, but I found myself annoyed by Isabella, and a bit confused by Cinaed. The book has a great premise, and the story is interesting – I love stories that have not only the romance, but something that ties everything together, and this book had that, even if it is sometimes confusing. I really wanted to like Isabella, but she just didn’t rise to the expectations. She was a physician, and that was the most interesting part about her. I liked Cinaed, but sometimes he was a bit confusing – completely trusting, and then suspicious, but always ready to protect Isabella… It seemed a bit forced. Also, I’m not a fan of insta-love. And even though this was more of an insta-attraction for Isabella, it felt like insta-love to Cinaed. There was a lot going around and sometimes it became confusing and the actions of the characters didn’t seem completely faithful to whom they were. Sadly, I just didn’t connect with the book. It was the first book I read in 2019, and it took me a whole month to read it. Not the best introduction to this author.
