    Fierce and Loyal

    Sarah makes a fantastic heroine. She is fierce, loyal and determined. Will has finally come into his own and made a place for himself in the clan. This is another great highland story that highlights the fierce loyalty of clan and kin. It intertwines nicely with the others in the series that have come before and makes for a great tale.

    Good Historical Romance

    How to Forgive a Highlander by Michelle McLean is book four in her MacGregor Lairds series. Though this is part of a series, it is a standalone, as are all the books in the series. Rose Thatcher, maid to Lady Alice Chivers, is mistakenly kidnapped by Scottish highlander, William MacGregor, who’s been spying on his clan’s sworn enemy. The two begin a contentious relationship, which makes perfect sense, since he did kidnap her. Soon their bickering becomes more than either will admit to wanting. How will this work when Rose wants to return to England and William can’t imagine leaving his beloved Scotland? I only had one major issue with this story. William talks out loud to himself and to Rose, even when she is unconscious. Admittedly much of this dialogue is humorous and this may be a clever way to impart backstory and character details to the reader, it just doesn’t seem like smart behavior for a spy. Overall How to Forgive a Highlander is a fun, easy read that I enjoyed. I rate it 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it to readers who enjoy historical romance. My thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    Fast Paced - Action Packed

    Series: The MacGregor Lairds #4 Publication Date: 7/8/19 Number of Pages: 214 ** 3.5 Stars Rounded Up ** This was a fast-paced, action-filled read and I enjoyed it. I haven’t read any of the other books in the series and felt perfectly comfortable with this one. There was a bit of ‘repeat’ of things from previous books, but only to add to the context in this book. I don’t feel as if I missed anything by not having read the earlier books. One thing I have noticed from discussions of the series – the couples are all into bickering. This book takes place at the same time as book #3 – How To Blackmail A Highlander – and features the heroine’s lady’s maid and the cousin to the hero. Rose Thatcher, lady’s maid to Lady Alice Chivers, loves her lady, England and her life in London. Her family is all there and she loves living in the Chivers household. Yet, she is standing on the dock in Dover watching a ship, with her lady on it, sail away. Her lady has a plan and now Rose has to carry out her part of it. She must return to the family’s lodgings and pretend that Lady Alice is in her room – indisposed. She has to do anything she can to prolong the discovery that Lady Alice is missing. William MacGregor is also on the docks seeing off his cousin Philip. He has to be very careful not to let anyone see his face and recognize him because he has been deeply embedded in the camp of the MacGregor’s mortal enemy, Ramsey. He’s acting as a spy and feeding information back to the MacGregor’s. Ramsey also has spies everywhere and if one of them spotted him, his life would be forfeit and they would know that Philip had left the area. As William is surveilling the dock area, he notices a woman – just standing – watching the ship on which Philip just sailed away. Can she be a spy for Ramsey? He can’t afford for anyone to report that Philip has left the area, so, the only option that William can see is to take the woman someplace where he can then question her. That gives Philip time to get further out to sea if she is a spy, and if she isn’t – well – no harm is done. Yes, we all know how that is going to end. In a set of blunders, one after the other, the woman ends up back at Ramsey’s camp with him. Now, he has to keep her protected from the lascivious hoodlums working for Ramsey. As Ramsey gets word that Lady Alice has flown the coop, he announces that they’ll all be leaving the next day. William must now manage to glean information on Ramsey’s route, manpower and plans as well as keeping Rose protected. They have quite a journey – both on the trail to Scotland and to their HEA. There were a couple of things that left me wondering. For instance, Will kept dispatching messengers – many of them. Where did he get messengers? He was in the middle of an enemy camp with no friends around anywhere. Also – why would they send for a ‘Reverend’ to perform a marriage ceremony when all of Scotland and England were Catholic at that time? I think I had a love/hate relationship with the main characters. I loved that each could be protective and caring toward the other. But then… He had to have the lowest of low self-esteem. He blamed himself for everything that went wrong in the world whether he could have prevented or changed it or not. I really got tired of that. For Rose, the constant ‘I must be with my lady’ just drove me insane. It is a nice read whether you’ve read the previous books or not. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I Loved It

    Rose Thatcher is a ladies maid who is worried over and furious with her lady. Her Lady Alice has run away from home on board a ship to chase after a man. Rose's job is to try an cover for her to give her time to get away. William MacGregor has just seen his Kinsman off on his way to Scotland. He is staying in the enemy camp to find out all he can about the expected attack. Someone on the dock is behaving suspiciously, time to go to work. This is a very amusing story even though it's full of danger. Our heroine is incredibly brave, our hero is strong and brave as well but also a little too impulsive. A fabulous adventure with great characters. I loved it.

    How to Forgive a Highlander

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it. While this is the fourth book in this series, it is the first for me. I could tell though that prior characters from the first three books were either discussed here or made appearances. It was not necessary for me to read the prior books as the author did a wonderful job in lightly relaying pertinent facts to me, the reader, so I would not be lost and to understand the story-line. I loved William. He is a wonderful male protagonist. He followed through with his actions but when he knew he was wrong, he did apologize and he truly felt the ramifications deeply. Rose was a strong lady's maid and the perfect foil for William. Both felt deeply for their individual cause but she was able to also see the "big picture" and adapted easily to the different situations that she found herself in. This book was also written in a dual POV format. I could easily identify with both characters and relate to their actions. I recommend this book.
