Highlander’s Golden Jewel: Beasts Of The Highlands Book 6

She spent her life hiding from her past. She will only get one chance to change everything.

Kaithria Zarah Keith has been alone and on the run her whole life, hiding the secrets of her past. She is known only as Kaithria; a quiet, mysterious, beautiful woman with black hair and exotic golden, tawny eyes that no one in the Highlands has ever seen before. 

Kaithria’s world is about to change when she travels with Lady Catriona MacKay to her new home at Kinbrace, the residence of the renowned warrior Keir Maxwell Gunn. Keir is the most attractive man Kaithria has ever laid eyes on. Strong and confident as no other man in Scotland, he immediately gives Kaithria a sense of safety that she had not felt for years.

But even if Kaithria’s horrendous past had not made her avoid contact with all men, suspicion and disapproval await her, the moment she sets foot on Kinbrace. To her utmost disappointment, the Gunn Clan and her own, the Keiths, might be neighbors, but are also sworn enemies!

At Kinbrace, she is mistreated by those who wish her dead, yet, Keir does not care that she is from an enemy clan, or that she looks different. He seems to take a liking to her, and his unexpected support makes her for the first time in years question her choices;

Does she stay to fight and reveal who she really is, or does she return to a life of hiding?

Loved this as much as the other ones from the Brough Castle ladies! Another feel good, great adventure full of romance, mystery and great characters with a heroine and hero you will love! This one is Kaithria's story. She is mysterious, quiet and exotically beautiful. She has been secretly in love with Keir Gunn since she first saw him. She is afraid because she is a Keith; the Gunn clan's enemy. She has been on the run since the day her father murdered her mother. I will not spoil the whole story line since it is sooooo good, but her past comes back with a vengeance and she is in trouble! I love the characters in this one. Great Aunt Agnes Gunn on her huge draft mule smoking her pipe is a great touch, and I love the inclusion of the support of INA ROSS!!!! as well as Lady Catriona MacKay and a new character- Lady Gillis Ross! Kaithria was used to being alone and defending herself, but these women all came together to help and defend her. Keir never gave up on her either, he did not care that she was from an enemy clan, or that she looked different, he knew he wanted to make her a Gunn, -his wife.
Great scenery of the area and Kinbrace with a little history mixed in! Loved, loved loved the ladies fighting their battles with fiesty Cat MacKay helping. A wonderful romance where Keir was patient and loving, waiting for Kaithria to trust him. All put together with a super HEA ending that was just perfect.. sighhhh.... Now I want to read Cat's story or Gillis Ross' story next please!!!!! Really love these books! Thank you for these!!!!

In the prologue a desperate mother is CARRYING her little girl while she runs from her beastly husband and his men. To fool him, she hides her daughter and then takes a satchel from her back and holds it as if she is carrying a child and continues to run. In reading this, I am assuming that the child is small, not more than four, possibly five years old. In chapter one, that takes place FOUR YEARS later, the child is a fully grown woman!! I went back and reread the entire prologue again and then started chapter one again and ...what the heck is going on here??? It made no sense and took me out of the story entirely because I kept trying to figure out the age of the girl, Kaithria. However, it was pointed out to me in a comment that it took place 14 years later. I went back and looked at my kindle which says 4 years later. I then checked the online portion that we can read and it IS 14 years later. This would make a BIG difference in the book. So, if you are reading a kindle that says 4 years, it is actually 14. (I still didn't care for the book.)

This wasn't the only thing in the book that made no sense. So much of the plot is ridiculous that I just kept shaking my head in bewilderment. Kaithria's entire backstory was lacking in coherence, too. And the dialogue...whoo. Just plain bad. The characters are supposed to be larger than life and heroic, I guess, but I found them to be comic book quality. I take that back. I love comic book super heroes, but not these women. I love my Highland warrior stories and I love the strong, fierce women who find their HEA with them. This is definitely not one of those stories.

There is an abrupt, non-satisfying ending to this story and you must download an app to get the epilogue. To do this, you give your email and permission to have the author send material to you. To me, that is holding the epilogue as hostage and I refuse to do that...especially for a story that I don't like!

I absolutely love this series and Alisa Adams has done it again! The Highlanders Golden Jewel is about Keir and Kaithria who met in the previous book and developed a friendship. Kaithria is a mysterious and unpredictable character. Keir is protective. Ms. Adams characters are so real that they easily allow me to enjoy the story. As the story unravels, clues about Kaithria are revealed. Will Keir and Kaithria have an HEA? Definitely read this book to find out.

This book like all of Alisa's books was sensational. This story was so enjoyable and compelling, I hated when it came to the end, just would have liked for it to go on and on. It holds your interest from beginning to the end and I loved that it included members of the Ross Sister's book series. I'm hoping there will be one or more of these written. We need to know Cat's story. If you love these Highlander books, like so very many of us do, this is a writer and her stories you will love.
