Tamed by a Highlander

Tamed by a HighlanderThe story line was ok, but it didn t have enough men actually wearing kilts which is a major part of my attraction to the highlander genre.I felt that the sex scenes dragged on for too long and detracted from the story. Cynthia s review belowMairi MacGregor grew up in the shadow of her three brothers and Connor Grant As a young girl, she was right there with them, getting into trouble As the years passed, the relationship between Mairi and Connor blossomed into love The night Connor leaves Scotland to serve in the king s army, Mairi feels betrayed and vows never to trust him again Connor had sent letters to Mairi asking her to join him in England, only for a short while, but she had refused.It s been seven long years since Mairi last saw Connor and now she finds herself stuck in London amid the lords and ladies, a guest at the court of the king and queen The last thing she wants to do is run in to Connor To make matters worse, Connor s parents are among the guests It doesn t take long before Connor and Mairi are at each other s throats At times, Mairi s tongue is as sharp as the blades she keeps hidden under her skirts, but Connor is no push over either Now, Connor is a different story Of course, he is alpha all the way and he never stopped loving Mairi, but won t admit it And he does not want anyone else to have her The scene where the Queen summons Connor to her chambers to discuss Mairi s future is fabulous Mairi is a very strong, independent heroine, and she doesn t like anyone telling her what to do Unfortunately, this shrew was getting tiresome Thankfully, her attitude gets an adjustment Connor was wonderful He would claim one minute Mairi was his, and then deny it with his next breath He would want to pummel someone for looking at her the wrong way He does get his chance, but the repercussions are unexpected Yet, he doesn t give in that easily to Mairi.Throw into the mix a real slime ball, Lord Oxford, who is courting Mairi and his equally creepy sister Lady Elizabeth The Queen and Lady Claire Connor s Mom add their two cents to get Mairi and Connor moving along in the right direction Of course, all entwined within the intrigue of politics and religion

Highlands, Mairi Must Make A Leap Of Faith And Join Forces With Connor Even If It Means Losing Her Heart To Him Again Reviewed at Bitten By Paranormal RomanceMairi MacGregor grew up in the shadow of

to get Mairi and Connor moving along in the right direction Of course, all entwined within the intrigue of politics and religion TAMED BY A HIGHLANDER is a very appropriate title as the bonnie lass Mairi is indeed tamed by Connor hm I can t decide if I liked this book or not I really can t stand the reason they stopped talking I can t stand that Mairi gave up on the love of her life because he wanted to fight for his king Connor even asked her to go to England and she refused and yet somehow it was all his fault that they broke up IhatedMairi I like highland books with strong willed heroines but Mairi was just obnoxious There is a time to be outspoken and crazy and then there s a time to act like a freaking lady You have to have balance and she didn t She was all crazy. Tamed by a Highlander took me 4 days to read, which doesn t bode well for a story Thus 2 stars review We have a very annoying heroine Mairi MacGregor Mairi has been in love with Connor Grant since she was 6 years old and he was 11 and he loved her too You could call them soul mates and the backstory indicates that with there childhood attachments There childhood love grows into an intimate love when Mairi is just 15 years which is acceptable for the time period Connor is called away to fight for his cousin king Charles and now must live in England Mairi takes this as some kind of rejection even though Connor tries to get her to follow him so they can be wed and continue there lives together The idiot girl refuses to leave her home, because she can t bare to leave Camlochlin This made no sense It was not a good enough reason for Mairi to stay separated from Connor and despise him for 7 years They meet again 7 years later at Whitehall and the English court of King James Mairi acts foolish and is childish with her contempt and temper tantrums around Connor I just wanted to slap her By the time the couple reconciles I really didn t care As far as I am concerned it was a one sided love far to long into the story There are plots and suspense aplenty but the annoying Mairi ruined most of the story for me. If you like highlander series, this one is a really good one to try I have found it much interesting and better written than some of the new highlander series I have runs across lately It does have some good historical detail which took a little bit of focus to figure out who the characters were and how they were connected The stories are really good though I loved the romance between the hot highlander and their strong heroines. Finally Great book, but blasted, it took me many fortnights to finish it. You know something s wrong when you re 39 pages from the end and you seriously contemplate DNF ing the book because you just wish it was over The heroine was already killing the book for me, but then the last 100 or so pages were drawn out for no reason It was so frustrating The book was pretty cute in the beginning The heroine and hero were childhood sweethearts, but Connor abandoned her to fight for the English and Mairi never forgave him They re forced into each other s company when Mairi and her brother are temporarily left behind in England while their family traveled home I was anticipating some lovely frenemy sparring and was eager to see the charm that was so apparent in the last book in the series, Seduced by a Highlander Unfortunately, I didn t get that.The I got to know the heroine, the less I liked her especially when I found out that although the hero did leave her to go to fight for England, it wasn t as black and white as she would have liked to imagine, and she was hardly a victim The hero asked her to go with him He wrote to her again and again asking for her to join him, telling her that he was going to build a house for them He didn t callously abandon her He wanted to marry her and was only leaving for England because it was a family duty that he was obligated by honor to fulfill She claimed that he gave up too easily even though it was four years later before he admitted defeat and that he wasn t sincere because he didn t beg her She criticized him for expecting her to be willing to leave her home and blamed him for choosing England over her All I can say to that is what was she doing if not choosing Scotland over him In addition to that, her bloodthirsty attitude toward getting rid of the Protestants really rubbed me the wrong way I know that the tension between the Catholics and the Protestants was real, but it made the heroine hard to like It s not that I don t like historically accurate religious attitudes in my romances I loved Flowers from the Storm after all it s that I was extremely turned off by heroine s genuine bewilderment over the hero s tolerance toward the Protestants After talking to the hero about his remorse over the Protestant massacres she did eventually agree that wiping out whole shires of people was wrong, but I wouldn t be lying if I said that she ever really learned any tolerance She was always freaking out on the hero and accusing him of betraying Scotland The hero is the only thing that kept me from rating this as an F He was practically a saint with how patient and forgiving he was of Mairi s spaz attacks She would make wild accusations and fly off the handle constantly, but he always ended up forgiving her for doubting his devotion Mairi was the only one keeping them apart The minute Connor saw Mairi again he was desperate for another chance He had finally given up hope three years before and had moved on, but nothing could keep him from trying again now that she was close enough for him to make her listen A driving force for this plot beyond Mairi being Catholic and disliking the Protestants was her determination to fight I didn t mind her desire to battle, but I did dislike the modern attitude she was given At one point she said Mayhap I would mind being a lass less if I spent time around a man who was at least aware of his knuckles when he tripped over them Seriously Connor and Mairi finally get back together and admit their love and their desire to stay together, but that was page 235 and I was baffled over what the author was going to do with the next 116 pages As it turns out, there was a whole lot of nothing and the extra pages existed for no other reason than to throw ridiculous roadblocks in their path to keep the relationship from being resolved At that point my patience was spent and it was a chore to finish I just wanted it to be over.Favorite Quote How did I ever survive ye, woman Do ye remember that time when we were babes ye were barely five summers old, I think I had snatched the doll ye had been playing with and ye chased me and then began to cry when ye couldn t catch me Och, damn him to Hades, why was he bringing up their childhood If ye dinna mind, Connor, I would prefer not Feeling terrible fer what I had done, I walked back to ye and handed ye yer treasured doll Ye took it gently, kissed its head and then whirled it around yer shoulder and smashed it into my face I never struck ye with a doll, she insisted, refusing to drift off into the past with him You are a liar and have always been one I lost two teeth So Ye grew , didna ye I was sent to bed with no supper because of ye Review posted on Fiction Vixen.
