Cali (Cali) - reviewed Highlander Unbound (Lockhart, Bk 1) on
Helpful Score: 5
Here is how I rated this trilogy:
"Highlander Unbound" (Book 1) 3*
- Two reasons: One, I didn't like Ellie's constant betrayal of Liam. Especially after having Liams declaration and words of love that he would do *anything* for her. Ellie just didn't have the depth of character that Mared and Anna did in books 2 & 3.
- And two, while I enjoyed Liam in general, I thought he came across as a little to muchâthe bigger they are the harder (or dumber) they fallâ type guy especially when he continued to let Ellie dupe him.
"Highlander In Disguise" (Book 2) 5* Grif and Anna's story had just the right amount of everything! My favorite of the 3 books! =)
"Highlander In Love" (Book 3) 4 1/2* Payton and Mared's story was very well done also. And while it was predictable, I was still in there rooting for them and teary eyed in places.
All in all a very enjoyable trio! And of course the covers are yummy! =)
Not as good as the second book (Highlander In Disguise) but still pretty good. The plot and storyline were inventive, but I felt as if something was missing. The characters had chemistry but they way they were written just seemed "off" (for lack of a better word).
It was nice to see a woman in a romance novel actually take control of her own fate for once.
Book one in a trilogy....Liam's story....funny, sad, romantic...Waterloo hero Scot Highlander of the Royal Army Liam tries to survive London with little money while trying to retreve an heirloom that will save his family....So what's all the fuss about a little hunting in Hyde park,a man's gotta eat donna he???
This is a historical fiction novel set in London and parts of Scottland in the 1800's. The characters are lively and as the story unfolds, it contains passion, pride,vengence and betrayal, to make it "juicy" and entertaining to read.
Honestly, I hated this book and I don't use that term lightly. I started this book and managed to read three other books before I came back to it. I know everyone else loved it and thought it was great, but I thought it lacked depth. It was a very superficial book. I didn't feel like I ever got to know the characters all that well and it was soooooo predictable! Poor family, strong man, must steal to rescue family, falls in love with girl with her own issues, she hurts him, blah blah blah. I could have handled the plot if it wasn't such an awful book. I have read other books by this author and couldn't believe how much I didn't like this book. So, I apologize to everyone who loves this book but I can't help how I feel. I just wanted potential readers to be aware that this book isn't exactly 5 star material. I know I was disappointed and I don't want you to be as well.
