NEW RELEASE REVIEW of
Taming the Highlander
The Scottish Relic Trilogy
by May McGoldrick

Pub Date 06 Sep 2016
This new historical romance from May McGoldrick pits one spirited lass against her biggest challenge yet: a Highland lord who has no desire to lose his heart.
Innes Munro has the ability to “read” a person’s past simply by touching them or something that belongs to them, but her gift comes with a price. When her normally quiet life is upset by a dark force intent on stealing her gift and her life, Innes is spirited away to the place where her family believes she will be safe. But the desolate castle of Conall Sinclair holds terrors of its own, for the master is a scarred and bitter warrior who has seen too much of war and cruelty. Isolating himself from his clan and the rest of the world in a secluded holding on the coast of Fife, Sinclair is reluctant to let the spirited Innes close to him, but as his feelings for her grow, the dangers that pursue her will force the two of them to forge a bond that will save them both.
This is the second book I’ve read by this husband/wife writing team and I am looking forward to more.
This second book of the series was much less confusing to me than the first one “Much Ado About Highlanders”.
In this case the storyline sticks mostly to the main characters and doesn’t jump back and forth at will from the villain’s story to that of the Hero and Heroine. This made the story flow so much better. The paranormal elements are much more easy to follow than in book #1.
The characters are well developed and as I said there is an even flow to the storyline.
I look forward to book #3 of this series.
I gave this book a 4.75 star rating.
I received a digital ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review
