Ually worth 6 stars but 5 is the highest I can go I oved everything about this book and read it in two sittings This is the Scottish version of Romeo and Juliet except this story is FILLED with honor oyalty sweet romance clean action and a WONDERFULLY happy ending This debut book is sooooo underrated it s one of the best reads I ve come across this year This is historical what i considered medieval times fiction but everything about the story is unconventional the characters LOOOVE LOOOOVE LOOOOVE Akira the two warring families the betrayal and the ove I highly recommend this book I m fortunate to have gotten a print copy The reader will be sighing with satisfaction during and after the story has ended yay for Highland Blessings I go weak in the knees at the thought of a Scottish warrior Not only is Bryce strong but he has their characteristic oyalty to family he s sinfully handsome and wants to fulfill his dying father s wish The problem ies with carrying that out His elder brother is chief and has no intention of tying himself with a rival clan to make peace The Megaman Battle Network 3 White and Blue Official Strategy Guide lady in uestion Akira is just as strong willed as she is beautiful He can t help but admire her and regret the actions that may have placed her in harm s wayThe rivalry between the two clans has beenong standing and many would ike to see Bryce fail It s hard to overcome so many years of hate and prejudice Trust is hard won and easily broken Plus someone is working hard to inflame the tempers of both "ClansBryce Is A Terrific Character "is a terrific character feels bound by his father s dying wish and yet drawn to Akira himself Her strength and courage are something he admires and he enjoys their verbal battles He s first angry at Eva Very enjoyable so far I enjoyed the use of the Marriage by Proxy aw made me Soy Sisters laugh it s so sneaky This was well written and Iooked forward to picking it up at the end of the day Akira was such a Tacar Dánta/Selected Poems loving compassionate character it would have been impossible not to care for herIt was a really nice read The only criticism I have is that I had not realised that the marriage had been consummated until the end when Akira stated she was pregnant There just was no indication of intimacy between her and Bryce Aovely book and I d certainly pick up another book by Jennifer Hudson Taylor This was an freebie It is really not well written for example the gratuitous highland accent in a book written about a period when modern English did not exist is distracting rather than charming with too many yers and dinnas and it has a very preachy Christian overtone any novel about this time would contain religious references but this book has an overtly modern Christian theme that doesn t fit with historical religious beliefs of a time 2 centuries before the Protestant ReformationThe plot is predictable and the pacing speeds up when it should be plot is predictable and the pacing speeds up when it should be for example during the death of a major character and slows when it should speed up The characters are basic Romance clonesShe gets 2 stars because at Sybil least she didn t put them in contemporary clan tartans I just wish she had done research on other themes as well such asanguage and religion This is a Christian romance This book had a nice flow to it and I did want to finish reading it to find out all that happens But I found myself A Womans Guide to Fasting less andess interested I have the second book but won t be reading itI was really hoping there would be a Hermann Zapf and His Design Philosophy lot to the romance but it almost seemed a side story And that was disappointing The action was not really actiony the violence not really violency and the drama not dramaee There was just somethingacking about all of it The main character really believed in God and talked about it non stop and that bugged just a I Know Who You Are little This book was very clean Even the violence was clean.

Plot afoot to sabotage that peace Akira "S LIFE IS IN TROUBLE AND "life is in trouble and die as the murderer draws closer and closer to Akira This book will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering how it will end and what happens next most definitely edge of your seat wondering how it will end and what happens next most definitely book you will want to read and add to your ibrary Discussion uestions for book clubs at the end 298 pages US 1399 5 stars In the 1400 s when this book was supposed to take place everyone was Catholic Catholics didn tdon t pray No Apology Necessary like Protestants There is no praying to God or Jesus directly you pray to the saints and Mary to intercede with God on your behalf The plot was stupid pacing dragged and the characters were generic Using ye ye re in your speech doesn t make it a Scottish book I hate how inspirational books throw a prayer in every chapter and think it covers the fact that there is nothing going on in the story and unless someone is sobbing hysterically I don t feel any tension reading a prayer Technically speaking this would rate a 25 star but the sweet story warrants rounding up instead of downHere is the perfect example of the difference between a good storyteller and a good writer The story telling is wonderful in this book both Akira and Bryce are basically good honest and compassionate people trying to do what s right for everyone while striving to maintain aevel of happiness for themselves The reader grows to The Secret World of Fluffy Ratbag love them both as they struggle with other s expectations and their own growing feelings amid the backdrop and barbarity of medieval Scotland The Christian aspect is obvious but presented in a very unthreatening but uplifting way making it part of the tale rather than an aside from itIt s in the actual writing of the story that it falls apart The sentences often seem elementary the transitions very basic the dialogue bordering on kitschy and the overall flow somewhat clumsy It feelsike a novice writer trying to tell a great story If one doesn t mind or is able to overlook all the shortcomings in the writing style this could be a very enjoyable read Highland Blessings is a fresh gently romantic intelligent read set in ancient Scotland Akira MacKenzie and Bryce MacPhearson are caught between their two opposing families To bring peace Bryce vows to his dying father that his father s heir Evan will marry the MacKenzie s daughter Akira Bryce kidnaps Akira on her wedding day and whisks her away to the MacPhearson castle But vengeance follows close on their heels and a member of Akira s family murders Evan Bryce s elder brother To keep his promise to his father it now falls to Bryce to marry Akira But can a marriage begun on mistrust and the hatred of generations succeed The young couple contends with the difficulties of being married to someone they re not sure will ever truly care for them They Awakening (The Guardians Heart Series Book 1) live under the constant threat of the two families rearing up in war And asove begins to flower the awareness grows that there is a traitor in their midst who will commit murder to keep the clans apart I Whoops! love it when an author knows their historical setting This is true of Jennifer Hudson Taylor This author breathes the Scotland of warring clans castle ramparts clays and swordplay Yet she weaves her vast knowledge of the history into a fast paced story in such natural ways you are transported to that era You can hear the rolling r s within the dialogue and smell the Scottish pines and heather You can feel the soft highland mist against your skin I highly recommend this book For several nights I tucked myself into bed with it This story unfolds with easy to follow twists and turns And if youike a gentle ove story and an inspirational read in a book that isn t going to jar you with unpleasant images and about 300 pages then this is one you l enjoy This book is act.
