I love this one evenPlus this book tangled a sensitive subject close to my heart Also this book brings back Laird Tadhg Matheson from Highland Solution, the nice laird that had abducted Catherine and was being blamed for things his clan did not do I always remembered a line in the book where Tadhg tells Niall he just wants a sweet and biddable wife after seeing what a handful Catherine was I believe Niall snickered or did an eye roll at that comment if I remember correctly Hmm, I wonder if Laird Tadhg Matheson will get one this time I recommend you read Highland Solution first the debut book of this series as there are characters from Solution that make appearances in Highland Courage plus I think readers will have a better understanding of the type of man Tadhg Matheson our hero really is Of course you can also read this book alone as well it s a personal choice I find it itcomplete and fun to read books that are connected in series order.Mairead Mackenzie is the heroine in this book, but yes she has issues like being afraid to leave her home and being around people Seven years ago at a fair where she was to watch her young brother, but as a game he hid from her As little lads will be little lads she tries to find him, but something horrific happens to 14 year old Mairead and since then she has never been the same Mairead has never shared this dark shameful secret with anyone but a priest who also was a witness to this horrid event in her past.Mairead s parents have no idea what happened to their daughter all those years ago which made their daughters personality and outlook on life change so drastically They have let her live this life of solitude for a very long time, but her father Cathal Mackenzie thinks it high time she get married and have bairns of her own and makes an alliance with a nearby clan.Mairead s brother is now a squire for Laird Tadhg Matheson and only wants his sister to be happy and does some match making of his own, as he is not happy with their father Cathal s choice and tells Tadgh not realizing Tadgh had his eye on his sister already Thinking it s just shyness thinking Mairead is the perfect biddable wife Of course Cathal realizes Tadgh is an even better alliance to side with as the betrothal and marriage contracts are not signed with the previous arrangement, yet he still luckily has an out and agrees to this Of course a marriage to any man has Mairead terrified Even if she did have a crush on Tadgh for years and recognizes the good and honorable man he is, plus she decides he won t want her once he finds out the truth about her and will break off the betrothal agreement It must be done she decides she must tell him the truth from all those years ago which will be the hardest thing she has ever had to do being her most darkest horrifying shameful secret and as introverted she is and uncomfortable around people it won t be easy for her To put it mildly she is not looking forward to this conversation, but feels it s the only way and also feels Tadhg should know the truth and be free of her Of course with her low self esteem she feels he is way too good for her soiled self as well.Now what will this honorable man do kick her to the curb or realize what happened all these years ago was not her fault, but was the buggers who abused her all those years ago This book is actually about Mairead and how she finds the strength and courage to stick up for herself and not blame herself for the violent actions of others and finds courage and how she starts believe in herself with help This story was so touching and yes it will pull at your heart strings too I absolutely loved this story and I know anyone who reads this that has a heart will love it too Again Ceci Giltenan weaves a beautifully written and touching story and this is only her second book she has written and yet she writes like a pro who has been doing it for years Yes Ms Giltenan blows me away once again with this

author didn t add any unnecessary drama to the story I also loved that there was a bit of a suspense mystery aspect to the story, which was created and carried out perfectly 3.5 stars It was good but not great I expectedfrom the book The first book has a strong plotline but failed to build a strong personality for a hero Whereas the second book plotline was not that strong The book was based on a rape victim child of 14 years Concerning the book timing which is the 14th century, I believe it would have been a very strong plotline But It failed because of the plot holes And the middle part of the story was a bit dragging for me But then the last part o 3.5 stars It was good but not great I expectedfrom the book The first book has a strong plotline but failed to build a strong personality

Matheson admires and respects the MacKenzies While an alliance with them through marriage to Mairead would be in his clan s best interest, he knows Laird MacKenzie seeks a closer alliance with another

HIGHLAND SOLUTION and I really enjoyed this one too It all started when, Maired s parents arranged a betrothal to Laird Tadhg Mastheson, who accepted her, because this alliance would benefit his clan But, she didn t want to marry him, at first, because she felt safe at home surrounded by her family He was quite aware that something terrible had happened to her, but didn t know what Will she find the courage to trust him and find the strength to face the challenge of being his wife But once, she met him, she found him friendly and handsome She tried her best with the staff and still felt she had not been welcomed at Cnocreidh, let s say she was a little bit bossy She took her role as Lady Matheson a bit too serious, I just felt like telling her to relax Tadgh tried to please her, but simply couldn t understand why she felt so sad Their relationship will have their ups and downs but they will do their best to be happy together She just needed to believe in herself and have the courage to face the biggest challenge of her life Ms Giltenan wrote an amazing Scottish story that I devoured A real page turner Lots of powerful emotions will pull you into Maired s touching story I highly recommend HIGHLAND COURAGE The release date is March 3 Lllooovvveeeeddd this book It had it all I read the first book in the series Highland Solution and liked it well enough, I decided to read book 2 Now I know I have erred I still have book 3 on the shelf and I am not sure I can convince myself to read another book from the writer The writing itself is actually pretty good It reads rather well I have however, major issues with how the story progresses This book, despite being well written, is BORING To write a story about sexual assault, such an emotionally charged theme, the boo I read the first book in the series Highland Solution and liked it well enough, I decided to read book 2 Now I know I have erred I still have book 3 on the shelf and I am not sure I can convince myself to read another book from the writer The writing itself is actually pretty good It reads rather well I have however, major issues with how the story progresses This book, despite being well written, is BORING To write a story about sexual assault, such an emotionally charged theme, the book is shockingly bland In the first half of the story, we read about how the heroine deals with a clan who is not exactly welcoming to their new lady We read about the steward, the bitter maids, and stupid villagers We read about how a maid tried to embarrass her by entering the master bedroom when principal characters were naked in bed We read about a too good to be true hero who seemed way too soft for me I am all about men treating women well and especially handling their special ladies with extra care But the way the hero is portrayed, he might be as well her older brother, or even older sister The interactions between lead characters are weak All that there ever was, was sex With such a softly written hero and a timid heroine, I really had trouble picturing heaven and earth rocking sex I decided to stop reading the book at about 50% I would venture to guess that the second half of the story would feature 1 how the heroine wins the hearts of her new clan and 2 the heroine s confrontation of the men who assulted her at a young age Throw in a few boring sex scence, there, you have a book I have the utmost respect for writers who tackle the sexual assault topic in their stories As aversed as I usually am from suffering in my romance novels, I am willing to read about how a female slowly works her way through and rises above such horrors and I am pained at the face of their struggles and humbled by the emergence of their triumph This book, cannot claim to have tackled this topic It is a wanna be romance novel which resorted to discussing details of how a woman fits in her new environment after marriage Rape or attempted rape in this book , romance, love, even lust, are poorly explored in this story I beg for forgivness if my review seems harsh to the writer As a reader I really had to push myself to muddle through 50% I would have given 1 star if it wasn t for the attempt to address sexual assult and the ok writing The writing is not the problem Plot and character developments are This is an Awesome book Mairead MacKenzie is being married to Laird Tadgh Matheson She
