Highland Warrior by Monica McCarty Mini Review and Book Giveaway

Posted March 19, 2009 by Tracy in Reviews | 54 Comments

The ruthless enforcer of Scotland’s most powerful clan, Jamie Campbell is the most feared man in the Highlands. Raw physical strength coupled with cunning political acumen make him a powerful force with whom few men will dare to reckon. Determined to see the Highlands tamed of its lawlessness and unrest, Jamie’s objectives are clear: under the guise of seeking the Chief of Lamont’s daughter’s hand in marriage, discover whether the Lamonts are harboring any outlawed MacGregors. But guise turns to desire when he meets the beautiful spitfire who rules the household with a dainty iron fist. The fierce Highlander never expects that the woman he wants above all others will test his duty and loyalty to his clan to the breaking point.

Cosseted and adored by her family, Caitrina Lamont has no intention of abandoning her beloved father and doting four older brothers for a husband—especially a Campbell. But Jamie Campbell is nothing like the parade of suitors that Caitrina’s father usually traipses across their hall. His raw masculinity threatens her in a way no man ever had before. But when Caitrina’s idyllic world is shattered, could the man she blames for her tragedy become her only hope for the future?

I love a good Highlander romance and this was a good one. I loved Jamie – he knew who he was, what he wanted, who he was loyal to and didn’t waver from that. Caitrina I didn’t like quite as much but she still had a lot of spirit and loved her family dearly. There were some points toward that the end of the book where I wanted to slap her silly but I have to say she did learn, eventually, from her mistakes. I’m pretty sure Jamie carried this book, IMHO. That being said, I’ve already bought the next book in the series, Highland Outlaw, and look forward to reading it.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Book Giveaway: I haven’t a clue how I ended up with 2 copies of Highland Warrior but I guess that just works in your favor, doesn’t it?

Go ahead and leave a message on this post up until 11:59pm on Saturday, March 21st and I’ll pick 1 winner and post it on Sunday in my “What I’ve Been Reading This Week” post. Oh, and I don’t have a problem shipping out of the US so anyone can enter. Good luck!

  1. I’m in for this one *g*. I read the first book in her previous series and really enjoyed it. Only not enough time and too many books has kept me from reading the next two.

  2. I <3 BG – I'm backed up too! lol My tbr is taking over!

    MM – I love men in kilts as well!

    Barbara – neither had I but I liked her writing!

    TBQ – I've not read her other trilogy – good to know it's good.

    Kristie – I'll have to look into her other series as well.

    Good luck to all!

  3. My TBR pile is staggering, but I am always ready to add another one! I have been working my way through Robb’s ‘in Death’ series, interspersed with others so that I don’t get overdosed.

  4. I just started reading “The House on Tradd Street” by Karen White. But I can always make room in my TBR pile for a good Highland romance. ~swoon~ asthenight at gmail dot com

  5. I love just about anything with those lusty Highland warriors, in fact, I’m reading one now. This would be a great addition to my kilty collection!
