  • Anne
    2.5 starsUm.It seemed a bit too much like a cheesy Lifetime Movie for it to be any fun. The dialogue was just too overblown & dramatic to seem real to me.He called her Angel, & she called him Warrior...Plus, they were both sooo horny when they were sick and/or injured.Reeeeeeally? Tell me more about your magical sex drive.Because, see, I don't know if you have ever been violently ill with a high fever, but I haveinjured.? 2.5 starsUm.It seemed ...

    His cock slid over her entrance and then stabbed deep.Stabbed? STABBED?! Okay, listen... When I am reading a romance book I expect some things. For instance, I expect the sex between the hero and heroine to be romantic. Loving. Like two human beings who care about each other trying to make each other feel good. I really don't feel like this is too much to ask.The sex in here is just horrible. It's atrocious. I was disgusted and revolted and recoi...

    Wowee! I absolute ADORED this book, more so than the first installment. It's so romantic and it definitely tugged at the heart strings and made me grab the tissues on occasion. Alaric and Keeley are just so good together. This book definitely put a big smile on my face. Oh how I love the McCabe warriors *sigh* Now the agonizing wait for Caelen's story.Maya Banks you've done a wonderful job in creating these beautiful characters, that I've grown t...

    OMG OMG OMG!!! This book had me crying! I loved these two equally (that rarely happens to me), I loved Keeley so much, she loved Alaric, and more then once puts his needs and the needs of the clan before her own. All she wanted was to belong somewhere, and once she did, she was loyal to her clan. And Alaric, never expecting to meet someone who captures his heart the way Keeley does before he is to marry someone else. but of course he knows he can...

    Seduction of a Highland Lass: 5 Star book that everyone should read, amazing Unfortunately, I have a problem. I am no where near good enough to be writing a review for such a perfect book. I mean, seriously, I am unworthy. Here are some facts1. I've only actually reread about a dozen or so novels. I don't generally reread2. I don't do series, and not back to back. There are some exceptions like Kresley Cole. And while i do read books in series, I...

    Did I love this book? Lordy, yes I did!!! Is it deserving of the 5 star rating? You betcha! Did I read this book just to get to the awesomeness that is Rionna McDonald's story? Ummmm...well...YES! And I'm not even a little bit sorry, and I was in no way disappointed. Keely and Alaric's story was 5 star worthy all on it's own!
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    The only reason this book is not 5 stars is I just couldn’t get over how they had an easy solution to Aleric getting out if his marriage to better the alliance. However, I loved everything else about their story. It was filled with really good angst. The narrator was fantastic and I recommend the audiobook!
  • ♡Karlyn P♡
    This series just gets better! I love an ‘ injured hero being saved by a heroine’ plot, and this one delivered. But what I really love are romances where the hero and heroine must overcome impossible odds, and that is what made this one such a winner for me. Of course you know these two will get their HEA, but how they will make it work was a huge question! Alaric McCabe is betrothed to the daughter of a neighboring laird, and this vital allia...

    I am really not happy! I cried ALL DAY reading this book!!! How did all of my GR friends love this book?! I guess people love to have their heart ripped out for 95% of a book. I may have been that way in the past, but not anymore. Not that I regret reading it. I want to complete the series and it was important to me to read this middle book. The book was good, but so very angsty. Even though I knew fully well that it would have a happy ending I s...
    Now this is what you call an epic love story!!MaCabe trilogy was my very first Adult/Historical Romance. Didn't care much about the first book, it had a week heroine, a doucheface hero, and a very frustrating "love story". The only character i cared about was Alaric McCabe! He is sweet, he is funny and he is not an "alpha male" (whatever does that mean). I didn't know each brother gets his own book, i still decided to pick this up jus Now this ...

    Story Rating 4 starsCharacter Rating 5 starsRomance Rating 5 starsHeat Level 4 starsOverall Rating 4.5 starsThis was a very good read for me and I am crazy with want of the next book, LOL. I certainly hope that Maya Banks continues writing historical's because she writes them just the way I love them most.The Characters in this book all deserve 5 stars. The heroine Keeley was so selfless and honorable. You could not help but love her. The Hero Al...
  • Mirjana **DTR - Down to Read**
    ***4.75 Stars*** "Isn't any time better than none at all? Isn't a taste of sweet better than a lifetime of bitter regret?" Alaric and Keeley stole my heart, made it ache, broke it and then beautifully put it back together again. This series just keeps getting better! Review to come, because first, I must with haste read Caelen's story!
  • Somia
    Keeley is a healer who lives alone in a small cottage, after being unjustly banished by the McDonald clan. When she comes across a severely injured Alaric and aids him, she finds herself kidnapped my Alaric’s brothers, who demand she continue to help Alaric, and aid Ewan’s wife when her time to give birth comes. I liked the fact that Keeley didn’t take any nonsense from Alaric’s brothers. She’s strong, independent and has a good heart. ...
  • Buggy
    Opening Line: “Alaric McCabe looked out over the expanse of McCabe land and grappled with the indecision plaguing him.”Whoa, hello sexy Highland Warriors. I guess I should have listened to all the rave reviews; I’m sorry now I waited so long to discover this series. This is the second book from the McCabe brothers trilogy and what an epic love story it turned out to be. I’ll be honest, it took me a bit to get into the story but Alaric and...
  • Mei
    I must say that I don't get the titles of these books... The titles seem cheesy; this one particularly. One could think that there was very much seduction involved, but instead I felt much more love, angst and romance!Alaric... *sigh*... soo seemingly stern and cold, but inside... ahhhh!!! That man has a way with aord that made me melt! His love words were so delicious and romantic that I was sighing constantly! He was hot and possessive too! I l...
  • Rowena
    Oh man, this book was so good. Full of angst and so much goodness. I started this book off wanting to punch all of the MacCabe men in the junk but they more than made up for their earlier behavior over the course of this book. So much so, that by the end, I loved them all. Keely is probably one of my favorite heroines EVER and Alaric was a fabulous hero. I cried a lot because so much happens. My body is ready for Caelen and Rionna's book.
  • KatieV
    I liked this, but 'tis the truth, I didn't love it. I wish I had a count of how many times that phrase was used, 'tis the truth.I was tempted to give this 3.5 stars for the angst at the end with the h's injury and the impending marriage of the H, but overall it really was a 3, hence the rating. Nothing wrong with a 3. It's not that I wouldn't recommend it. It just lacked something to take it from like to love.It was less campy than the first book...
  • Michelle
    After so many rave reviews I really expected a lot more from the book, unfortunately it fell flat... VERY flat. I will say, I did not read the first book in the trilogy and just started with the second book. I don't know if I would have enjoyed the book more feeling as though I knew the other characters better... but I'm going to venture and say I would not. I guess for me the biggest problem was the whole love at first sight connection they had....
  • Mariana
    ***SPOILERS***I almost did not finish at 70%. Only because I have a policy to not stop so far through did I force myself to finish this book.I know I am in the vast minority here, but I just did not buy it! As best I can tell, Alaric McCabe did not love Keeley McDonald nor did she love him. They lusted for each other. He has no problem taking any woman he wants to bed. She decided that since she has already been labeled a whore, she might as well...

    OMG, that cover. Inauthentic Kilt Lad meets Inauthentic Nightgown Lass.Keeley MaDonald was unfairly cast out from her clan; now she lives on the outskirts, surviving through gifts from those she helps as a healer. When wounded warrior Alaric MacCabe collapses outside her cottage, she takes him in and nurses him, finding herself beguiled when the feverish Alaric holds her close and calls her his angel. But Alaric is forced to make a clan alliance,...

    3.5I really don't have time to write a complete review, but I can say that it was decent.I mean, it was really really insta-lovely.Alaric was unconscious for a long time and they were already making out while Keeley was healing him! wut!I really liked their relationship though! I love that Alaric doesn't represent the typically manly man.He is unashamed to show emotions and cry and stuff. I love that. He doesn't feel the need t...
  • Gretchen (About That Story)
    This was so amazing. I was so caught up in everything between Alaric and Keeley. I was on the edge of my seat with all the tension, longing, and passion happening and I was pretty much dying for my HEA. So freaking fantastic!I loved Alaric and Keeley, these two had major chemistry. I loved how challenging they were to one another. Keeley is seriously feisty. I loved how caring and wonderful they were and how their feelings were growing in the mid...
  • Pamela(AllHoney)
    A wonderful continuation of the McCabe Trilogy. The second in the series about the three McCabe brothers. The middle brother, Alaric is attacked on his way to the McDonald's clan, where he is to become formally betrothed to Rionna McDonald. Somehow he manages to get on his horse and the horse ends up near Keeley's small cottage. Keeley, an outcast of the McDonald clan, cares for Alaric while his horse goes for help. lol Well, he does. Anyway, Kee...
  • Ryan - Sweet Red Reader
    Here's the thing... I sort of knew the solution to the big problem because I read the blurb to book 3, but I was still enthralled in the whole plot to how they got there which is a miracle because the ending was basically spoiled (by me - my bad). I effing loved every page of this book. Alaric and Keeley are everything. I didn't think Ewan and Mairin's story could be topped, but darn it, it was! Plus, I love the McCabe clan and as soon as I finis...
  • Heather
    I am plowing through this trilogy by Maya Banks and loving every minute of it. I thought the last book was the best...I was wrong, this one is. Can I give more than five stars? I loved this. While each of this books could potentially stand alone, I would highly recommend that you read them in order. There is a lot of back-story to the political intrigue that goes on. You would be slightly lost if you weren't up to speed.I am plowing through this ...
