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.

Keys and Kisses (Untouchable Book 3)

When the year started, I had one goal—make my AP classes count and keep my grades up. Both my focus and my grades started wobbling. Dating my best friends came with perks like hugs, kisses, and invitations to dances, but it also came with cons in the form of vindictive posts, hate mail, and vandalism of my car.
I asked if it could get any worse, and I guess I got my answer.
My college essays suck.
My mother and I are racing toward a collision.
My secret admirer might turn out to be a real friend.
My dance partner wants to walk away to preserve our friendship.
My best friend demanded I keep no more secrets.
My first offered to move in with me.
My second… he’s got my back.
They all do.
But what brought us together seems to be tearing us apart and I can’t jeopardize those friendships.
I won’t.
I thought losing them was the worst thing, but losing even one… it might be the change we can’t survive.
The real key here isn’t what do I want… it’s am I willing to fight for it?

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This is such a great example of how a reverse harem might evolve naturally. The situation is treated with respect as are the individuals. Again, Heather has taken on a sensitive subject and done right by it. And Heather, if you need it, I’ve got a Master at Arms Chief (E-7) and a Special Ops Colonel (O-6) I can bring with me to help out!

USA Today bestselling author, Heather Long, likes long walks in the park, science fiction, superheroes, Marines, and men who aren’t douche bags. Her books are filled with heroes and heroines tangled in romance as hot as Texas summertime. 

From paranormal historical westerns to contemporary military romance, Heather might switch genres, but one thing is true in all of her stories—her characters drive the books. When she’s not wrangling her menagerie of animals, she devotes her time to family and friends she considers family.

She believes if you like your heroes so real you could lick the grit off their chest, and your heroines so likable, you’re sure you’ve been friends with women just like them, you’ll enjoy her worlds as much as she does.

Heather is best known for her 20-book paranormal romance series Wolves of Willow Bend, which begins:

Between Ice and Frost: Paranormal Dragon Romance (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 17)

Raven Casino loves solving mysteries. So it was only natural that she take to the Alaskan wild to find her missing friend, Juliet. She is ready to take on the world to figure out where Juliet could be. But she wasn’t expecting to meet not one, but two hunks in the icy small town of Antler, Alaska. These two were so sexy they radiated enough heat to melt the polar ice caps. Hot damn!

Frost and Ice were hired to make sure Raven was safe, but the minute they saw her, they knew she was the missing piece to their triad. Now to explain to her that she was meant to be with them both. Shared by both. And not freak her out. That was going to be harder than stopping her from getting herself killed in their little town.

There’s something going on in Antler and Raven’s out to find out what they’re hiding. With a missing friend and clues at every corner she turns, she’s taking this bull by the horns. The fantasies with Frost and Ice are a side effect of being so close to them, but she’d get over it. Right? Uh… When she solves a puzzle that’s bigger than she realized, it’s going to take two very alpha dragons to keep her alive long enough to get her freak on.


“Just answer the question. Your lack of response leads me to believe there is a sexy man helping you out.”

She groaned and dropped on a chair, leaning her body back. “Try two. Both these guys are hot enough to raise the water levels of Alaska by melting the polar ice caps.”

“Good god. Really?” her mother asked, excitement and curiosity plain in her voice.

WInged Solution: Paranormal Dating Agency (Heads N’ Tails Series Book 1)

Burn me once, shame on you. Burn me twice…shame on me

Her car never slowed as she came closer to the intersection. Headlights were coming from the left and right. There was nowhere for her to go. Pumping the brakes, she honked her horn hoping to alert other drivers. She braced herself for the impact that was no doubt coming. Tires squealed. The first car clipped her back end sending her spinning. Before her car could come to a stop, another impact slammed her against the window. Gripping the steering wheel as tight as she could, she planned to ride it out. It was all she could do other than scream. Seconds seemed to take minutes as she was whipped from side to side. Finally, her car stopped. She was alive; she couldn’t believe it. Opening her eyes, she was scared to see the shape of her car. Her car had spun her away from the crash site and down the road 20 feet. As she reached for the door handle, a set of lights appeared in her window. It wasn’t slowing down. Did it not see her? Panicking, she tried to open her door so she could get out. It was jammed, and her leg felt strange. She didn’t have time to register what was happening as the vehicle slammed into her car sending it rolling across the street.
