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.

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.

Entertaining tale, wonderful narration.

This tale had action, heartbreak, witty banter, and danger. Evelyn left England for Scotland to try to support herself while running a school. Her good intentions met the wall and menace of Grey. It was entertaining as Grey fought his feelings for the English woman taking over his home. He was so protective when not growling. Despite his attempts to stop her, Evelyn was a force unto herself, doing things to change the castle to suit her needs, and except for a moment or two of weakness, she was strong enough to stand up to Grey as well as the English soldiers threatening the clan.
Justine Eyre did a wonderful job with the narration, and she kept me wanting to listen.

This is my unsolicited review.

Restores my interest in highland romance!

I haven’t read a good highland story in a while so I gave up on them. I decided to try this one. I am so glad i did. THIS book is why I used to LOVE these stories. This has a strong male lead (Grey) who isn’t too strong when it comes to his female. He has a dedication to his clan and doesn’t trust the bloody English. Evelyn is a quite reserved English lady...until she meets Chief Grey Campbell. He just seems to push all her wrong (or is it right?!?) buttons. Then she become loud, brash and daring. They clash...OH so Well! I LAUGHED out loud at the antics these two got up to.

I read this fairly quickly and even looked into audio to see if it was a dual read. I really really wanted a male to read Greys part. So I could listen to that lovely Scottish accent for the whole book. But alas it is only one reader. Anyway I am sure this will be on my re-read list for years to come. It is very enjoyable!

I also listened to this on audio and the narrator does a great job! Loved listening to her

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.

Good story

Terrific story, the narrator was good at English accent, even Irish, though there were no Irish characters... But for the love of God, do not let that narrator anywhere near a Scottish accent again, the story was good, so I listened on... It would have been great if not for the terrible accent of Grayson Campbell took away from the magic,
