Highlander Ever After (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs #8) by Paula Quinn [arc review]

I don't often read historical romances, but I am most definitely reading the other 7 books in this series now! This was phenomenal- Enchanting from beginning to end!
It will definitely go on the list of favorites for the year (working on that post at the moment). I started reading this beauty while my kiddos where taking a nap and I proceeded to ignore them for the rest of the day 🤣 I just needed to know the rest! (on my defense I work from home and my kids usually get a lot of my attention)

The Blurb:

They tried to resist a marriage of convenience...
As the clan chief's son, Adam MacGregor is duty-bound to marry a royal heir. Yet when he meets his bride—a beautiful but haughty young lass who thinks he is nothing more than a common savage—he realizes she's more than he bargained for. But the more Adam gets to know his new wife, the more intent he is on proving her wrong about him.

But can they resist each other?
Sina de Arenberg wants nothing to do with the unsavory MacGregors, especially the fierce Highlander she now calls husband. But the more time she spends with the man she married, the more she sees his honor and courage. Just when she thinks there might be a future for her and Adam, Sina is called back to court. England isn't the place she remembers, though, and soon she'll be forced to choose between the life she once knew, and the Highlander who has captured her heart.


5 Stars is not Enough!

I don't even know where to start! Everything about it was perfection. The writing was flawless, the pace of the story was just right, the main characters had chemistry and were easy to connect, the side characters were interesting but did not monopolize the story, the setting was on point... everything was just right! I am a newbie to Paula Quinn (yes, I know that is a crime. My fellow romance lovers remind me of that constantly) but needless to say I have already added the whole series to my tbr on GoodReads and will be looking at her other books soon too.

Sina was very annoying to start, but she had every right to be, who wouldn't in her shoes? Being forced to marry someone you never met when you were in fact promised to a man you are in love with is a difficult thing to come to terms with. Annoying however does not mean unlikable, she was a character that even though often got on your nerves you couldn't help but love. As she comes to terms with her new reality her attitude towards the wonderful people around her change and the story unfolds into a beautiful, romantic, and enchanting tale!

Adam was likable from the very start. He did not want this marriage either but he accepts it a lot faster than she does. It is easier for him, he didn't have to leave his home and family and can for the most part carry on as he was before. He tries to be understanding and caring with Sina, even when she does not deserve it. He is respectful, honest, noble. It is impossible not to fall for him, and Sina eventually comes to terms with that last bit too. 

The side characters were all wonderful and I am looking forward to reading some of their stories. It is good to point out though that although I want and will read the previous books in this series I never felt like I was missing something, you can most definitely happily read this book without having read the other 7. I sure did! :)

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an
