Publisher's Summary

1684, Scottish Highlands

Englishwoman Evelyn Worthington is resolved to build a school for ladies in her brother's newly purchased Scottish castle. But when she arrives, not only does she find the castle scorched by fire, but a brawny Highlander bars her entry.

Clan chief Grey Campbell would rather die than see his family home, Finlarig Castle, fall into English hands, so Grey must win the battle of wills with the beautiful Sassenach who flashes a bill of sale before him.

When the war between Evelyn and Grey escalates, passions flare. But outsiders have their own plans for Finlarig. After secrets are revealed, and muskets are lit, the fates of the Campbell Clan, the school, and a possible future for Grey and Evelyn are in as much jeopardy as their lives.

Good story

I would’ve given 5 stars all the way but the seduction was a little flat from others I’ve read and I love Justine as a narrator but her male Scottish voice fell flat for me. Otherwise pretty good story. I’ll probably get the next one in series.

Loved It!

Perfect balance of story, steam, and performance without taking itself too seriously. An enticing listen.

A Rose in the Highlands

You just can't help but love a sexy highlander! This is Book 1 of this series, I unfortunately didn't realize that until it was too late, and I listened to book 2 first. Lol. Justine Eyre does a fantastic job as narrator and the guys even sound sexy. 😀 Heather McCollum gave her such well developed characters to carry the story. I loved listening to this audio book and b believe both Author and Narrator deserve 5 stars for their contribution to this collaboration. Don't miss this one!

If you want your Highlander’s rugged, better skip this book.

This whole book irritated me to no end. If you want a milksop for a Highlander and obnoxious English chit as your “champion“ with no sense of justice whatsoever, then this book may be for you. Our “hero“ is unable to do anything without being told - including think. In fact, he is the perfect “woke” man WITHOUT any “toxic masculinity”. I have no regard for him and absolutely despise her. I couldn’t wait to see how our “heroine” was going to master HER life and get herself out of every situation. I found her without any redeeming qualities at al and he was no more than a prop so you could call this a ”romance” book. I have only returned one book, in over 10 years but this will most definitely be the second.

I couldn’t finish it

The storyline was just dragging too much. I just couldn’t finish it man... I wanted to know more about Evelyn’s sister and her story instead. Maybe the second book will be more eventful.

A Rose the Highland

My first book by this author. Really enjoyed listening to this story. The women in this story were strong women, love the romance between the two countries. Great read and enjoyed the voice of the narrator.

Loved it!

I loved this story. I am a huge fan of Justine Eyre so that played a part. But the story was terrific. Exciting and very romantic. Both lead characters were easy to love and it was SO satisfying that Evelyn was the one to get her justice in the end. Strong women characters and men with enough angst to be fun to read but not whiny. I highly recommend this series.

Another Scottish Favorite For Sure!

Absolutely loved this book. Would have given it more than five stars! Love all the intrigue and misunderstandings in this book. Each page was perfectly balanced with description and dialogue, and I found it hard to do anything else other than listen to this story. Evelyn is perfectly head-strong, and Grey sounds rough and gruff, but turns out to be the biggest softie in the world. One of the best Scottish romance authors I've found, and I've already started more of her books. Lily S. Thomas - Author of the Ice Age Alphas series and the Galactic Courtship series
