Can the fiercest master of battle conquer a woman’s heart?
They call him the Demon Highlander. The fearsome Lieutenant Colonel Liam MacKenzie is known for his superhuman strength, towering presence, and fiery passion in the heat of battle. As Laird to the MacKenzie clan, the undefeated Marquess has vanquished his foes with all the rage and wrath of his barbaric Highland ancestors. But when an English governess arrives to care for his children, the master of war finds himself up against his greatest opponent. . . in the game of love.
Defying all expectations, Miss Philomena is no plain-faced spinster but a ravishing beauty with voluptuous curves and haughty full lips that rattle the Laird to his core. Unintimidated by her master’s raw masculinity and savage ways, the headstrong lass manages to tame not only his wild children but the beast in his soul. With each passing day, Liam grows fonder of Miss Mena—and more suspicious. What secret is she hiding behind those emerald eyes? What darkness brought her to his keep? And how can he conquer this magnificent woman’s heart . . . without surrendering his own, in The Highlander by Kerrigan Byrne.
“Romantic, lush, and suspenseful.” —Suzanne Enoch on The Highwayman
Kerrigan Byrne has done it again. I have read and reviewed all of this series by this amazing new author. This, the 3rd book in the series has all of the elements that made the debut novel, The Highwayman so unforgettable. After reading that one I just didn’t see how she could get any better, but I found The Highlander to be the best yet.
The characters are well developed and the storyline is nothing short of amazing. . I highly recommend this book and this series. If you’re a fan of Edgy and Explosive Historical Romance this is one of the best ones I’ve read lately.
I gave this book a 4.75 star rating. The only reason it’s not a 5 star is that some of the language is a bit strong. and some readers may find this offensive.
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I also received a paperback ARC which I won through Goodreads.

How is it that these two are immediately attracted to each other. You’ll have to read the book to find out.
This is a book that had me HOOKED from Chapter 1!! I found it totally engaging and had a hard time putting it aside when I needed sleep. The characters are well developed and make you fall in love with them right away. The book is full of surprise, twists and turns. You never get bored. I had not previously read anything by this author but when invited to read an ARC of it from the publisher through Netgalley, I couldn’t resist. This is a book well worth your time to read. If you’re a fan of Edgy, Raw and Explosive Historical Romance this is one of the best ones I’ve read in a while. If you like your Romance on the SWEET SIDE this will not be your cup of tea. Be prepared!! It’s going to knock you socks off!!!
Synopsis of “The Hunter”
They’re rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards-dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster…
A scandalous proposal.
Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire’s most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, cold-hearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London. But when his latest target turns out to be London’s own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher’s whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission. She has made him feel again. Now, he will do anything to save her life, so that he can claim her as his own…
A perilous passion…
When Millie learns what Christopher was hired to do, she is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this notorious hunter’s arms may be her only path to safety-even if doing so could be the deadliest mistake she’s ever made. But how can she resist him? As the heat between her and Christopher burns out of control, danger lurks in the shadows. Is their desire worth the risk? Only the enemy knows what fate has in store…
The story of these flawed heroes continues from the debut novel The Highwayman.
Much like our flawed hero in the first novel, Christopher Argent comes from very tragic and humble beginnings. Like the Highwayman this is a not to be missed read. Although it starts out with the brutal and tragic death of our heroes mother, this tragedy is what builds his character and is a very important part of what makes him who he is.
I truly loved this book and would give it a solid 5 stars. Like The Highwayman before it, the characters are well thought out and the story line is nothing less than spectacular.

In the days before the Civil War, there lived in New Orleans the gens de couleur libre – copper-skinned half-castes, liberated by their “owners,” but confined by their color to a life of political non-existence and social subordination. Still, an aristocracy would emerge in this society: artists, poets and musicians, plantation owners, scientists, and craftsmen whose talents and reputations would extend far beyond the limits of their small world. Best selling author Anne Rice’s probing, lyrical style sweeps you into their midst as she introduces Marcel, the sensitive, blue-eyed scholar; Marie, his breathtakingly beautiful sister, whose curse is to pass for white; Christophe, novelist and teacher, the idol of all young gens; and stunning Anna Bella, whose allure for the well-to-do white man would become legend. Here is a compelling and richly textured tale of a people forever caught in the shadows between black and white.
