    Fabulous Historical Romance!

    Highland Sword is a spectacular historical romance by May McGoldrick. Ms. McGoldrick has once again produced a well-written book populated with an outstanding cast of characters. Morrigan is wanted but continues to do what she thinks is best, often putting herself in danger. Aidan is a barrister and will be defending 2 innocent men. Morrigan and Aidan share a secret. Their story is packed with drama, humor, sizzle, action and suspense. I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next book by May McGoldrick. Highland Sword is book 3 of the Royal Highlander Series and reading books 1 & 2 would help you understand the back-story, it can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Great entry to this series

    Highland Sword is the third book in the Royal Highlander series after Highland Crown and Highland Jewel. No matter if you haven’t read those two books, because you can pick right up with this one and thoroughly enjoy it. But if you have read Highland Crown and Highland Jewel, you’ll be thrilled to be back in the land of the heart-pounding Scottish historical, with characters you grew to love, characters like Maisie, Naill, Isabella, and Cinead. They’re familiar and it feels good to catch up with them and their continuing stories. And to focus now on Morrigan Drummond and Aidan Grant, two characters who will delight you, make you laugh and make you swoon, and make you fear for their lives because of the danger they are in. Both Morrigan and Aidan are honorable, loyal, proud, fierce. But they don’t know that about each other and their first encounter is dangerous and unpleasant, and when they find themselves unexpectedly throw together a little thing called trust is missing. But a not-so-little thing called attraction is not. Morgan flees to the Highlands to avenge her father’s death, and to be with those she loves. Aidan is a barrister working to free innocent people in a time of danger and treachery. They must decide if they can work together, and what, if anything, to do about the pull between them. Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for providing an advance copy of Highland Sword via NetGalley. All opinions are my own. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it without hesitation.

    Historical Scottish Romance

    A man with royal blood hidden as a child by his mother Unwilling to take the throne as an adult Machinations Evil-doers AND As usual Some are caught in the crossfire Will they do well OR Will they not? This is a great book! I love this author’s books that are filled with historical settings, wonderful characters, delightful plots and of course…the splendid romance they provide in every book. This story caught us up with Cinead but went directly into the story of Aidan Grant and Morrigan Drummond. Morrigan is a woman who was wronged as a child and the wrong has festered for years. She has become adept at fighting and deals with her emotions by working on improving her skills as a female warrior. She is the daughter of a doctor who was killed in a previous book and though she has skills as a healer it is not her calling to be a doctor. Aidan is a superb sought after lawyer who has been to war, lost family and wants to see wrongs righted. His brother Sebastian is a character I would love to have find his HEA in a future book. Morrigan and Aidan should have nothing in common but they soon realize that perhaps they do. They both are on the same side politically and have the same vision for Scotland. In their “meet cute” he is pummeled, bruised and battered…by her. Meeting strangers in alleys is not always a pleasant experience. As the story progresses we find out more about both characters and a bit about what makes them tick. There are secrets exposed, bad men to deal with, political intrigue, family and clan events and the slow wooing of Morrigan by Aidan. So often in reading historical romances I get caught up in the costumes or what is going on with the people and lose sight of the historical time period and what is going on in history. I know, my bad. This author wove into this story just enough information from previous books to remind me what happened in the previous books in the series and thus helped me remember why I care about the outcome of THIS book. And care I did. What I liked: * Morrigan: smart, strong, daring and caring – loved that she was also unbending and in some cases unforgiving * Aidan: intelligent, has a vision, strong and heroic – loved the way he knew just how to handle Morrigan * Sebastian: an interesting man I want to know more about * the political issues taking place in the background * The characters, plot and writing * The closeness of the women in the story * That evil was thwarted – at least a few times What I did not like: * The spymaster…a horrible person who deserved much more pain than he eventually received * The Sparrow…another horrible man that got just what he deserved * Having to say goodbye to the characters when the story ended Did I like this book? Yes indeed Would I read more by this author? Without a doubt Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Fantastic historical romance for history lovers!

    This entire trilogy has been absolutely wonderful, rooted in historical accuracy and loosely based on historical facts and figures, yet filled to the brim with amazing detail and fictional characters that bring the history to life. While each (including this one) is a standalone romance, there are quite a lot of interconnected people and events that tie all the books together to make one epic historical adventure. In this final book of the trilogy, we have a warrior maiden named Morrigan, a woman with her own plans for vengeance, and a brilliant lawyer, Aidan, a man who will risk everything for truth and justice. These two at first seem to be on opposing sides (their "meet cute" is most definitely anything but cute) but their shared passions soon have them fighting together against a common foe. As a history buff as well as a romance enthusiast, I love the way this series mixes fact and fiction. I absolutely adored the way Aiden arranged things for Morrigan once she made up her mind. His tender insight into what she needed was beyond sweet, and proved just how perfect he was for her. Their pairing brought out the best in each of them, and together they're a truly unstoppable team. I want to warn sensitive readers that this story contains the brief description of a sexual assault on a child, told in retrospect. It was handled delicately and respectfully, but it was crucial to the overall story and therefore could not have been omitted. Highlander romances is one of my all-time favorite genres, and I especially love this book (and the entire trilogy) because of the ring of authenticity wrapped around life-and-death adventure and a legendary romance. It's everything I could want in a historical romance. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
