Good Highland romance. Part of the MacAllister series.
Very simple, feel good love story. The moral of the story was basically opposites attract or beauty is found in the eye of the beholder. The heroine Nora although beautiful drives everyone insane because she never shuts up, I found it funny. She is so inquisitive about everything, she doesn't want to be married to who her father promised her to so she runs to the feared and tormented hero, Ewan MacAllister. Ewan was a fierce bear with a heart of a teddy once it is touched by Nora. He lives in a cave in silence and wants nothing to do with the outside world, he feels he is responsible for his favorite brother's death. Nora is on a mission to get away from her betrothed and she wants Ewan to take her to her aunt, the queen, for help. Ewan thinks she is nuts with her constant chatter and silly mission, yet she grows on him as he opens his heart to her. There wasn't anything shocking or new to this story, but I loved it because the H/h were the perfect match for each other and no one else would have had them. I related a lot to this book because I do feel people are puzzles and sometimes they only fit one way to form the picture. There was a line in the book that was touching and I am going to list it in my favorite sayings. "A jovial person can be happy with anyone, when a sad one laughs he treasures the one who brings him sunshine." I have read a few books from Kinley MacGregor and I will read more when I need that light, easy going read.
anything this lady writes is great
Outstanding series- Ewan's story
Desperate to advoid her impending marriage to a man she does not love, beautiful Nora decides to seek the protection of her aunt, Eleanor of Aquitane. Braving the wrath of her father and her betrothed, she implores the one man feared by both of them to help her reach England and safety.
Ewan MacAllister is a bold rogue with a shadowy past, and he agrees to be Nora's escourt only because the journey suits his own purposes-or so he tries to convince himself. But he's beguilded by the lass' beauty and courage in the face of peril. And once she relixes there's nobility beneath the fierceness Ewan shows the world, there's no turning back.
Drawn to each other by a passion they cannot deny, the spirited Lady and the proud Highlander unite-willing to chance all for a love that's true.
There will always be a soft spot for my first. McAllister, that is. Ewan is most brooding. Can't wait for Lochlan's story and more impatient to hear more of Kieran.
Not as fun as the other ones just because there was too much of the "I want him/her but he/she is not for me" attitude. It got a little bit old but I loved Nora's nonstop talk and Ewan's reactions to her. That saved the book for me.
i loved Ewan's character! a fun read. D:-)
Love all of her books & this is no exception. Very well written & keeps you reading to end. Could not put down.
This is a really fun book to read! This is the story of a hard headed Scot heroine and a misguided and oddball hero. They are intense and realistic characters with good chemistry.
Great book! Lots of action and funny too!
another sweet love story with an endearing hero and a strong heroine...with just the right amount of humor and steam
Another great Kinley MacGregor tale!!
Publisher: No one can tell the hot-blooded Scottish lass whom to marry! But the much-feared man Nora runs to for protection may be more perilous to her heart than any unwanted groom...And much more difficult to tame!
Like this author. Fun easy read!
Excellent book and a must read for anyone who likes their romance with a bit of history. Liked the book so much i bought it in hard back to put on my keep forever shelf.
I am a big fan of Kinley Macgregor and read it when it first came out. Now want to share with someone else thought they would enojoy it.
Another great MacGregor book! This one tells Ewan's story. I couldn't put it down.
Book 3 MacAllisters
Really really boring. oh my goodness it was boring. I made myself finish it. It took me 3 days to read it when I could have finished a good book in less than a day. Horrible.
I thought the book was good and the characters were great.
