WHAT AN AMAZING COLLECTION OF BOOKS!
A Ghostly Tale Of Forbidden Love:
5 Stars for Madeline Martin!! This novella was so good I read it in one sitting. If you have not read one of her books you are truly missing out! She has a way of making her character come alive with Gavin, Senara, Edana, a ghost named Balthasar and even the horse named Norbert.
Gavin only gave his first name when meeting Senara for the first time on their way of Castle of Park. Senara is going there to be the wicked Aunt Edana maid as Gavin is the Laird. Can Gavin keep his promise to his father to watch over Aunt Edana? Can Senara help Balthasar find peace? Can Gavin and Sarana find each other? So go back in time to 1604 Banff Scotland and read this wonderful story.
The Madam’s Highlander:
Madeline Martin’s writing keeps getting better and better, not that I thought that was even possible as her prior books are amazing. The storyline was wonderful and the visual was so descriptive I could just picture it all in my mind. The Madam’s Highlander has ambitions, pride, kindness, a love for family and a trust that is put to the test, hard work, desertion, traitors, evil, rape, battle and duty, even a brothel, in other words it has it all. I highly recommend this Novella as you won’t be disappointed. So travel back in time to 1746 Edinburgh, Scotland to Molly’s Brothel with Ewan and Freya on an adventure like no other.
Another great by Madeline Martin. Madeline’s writing is just amazing and her stories are so original. The Highlander’s Untamed Lady, book 3 in the Highland Passions series, is no exception. What so intrigues me in this story is the use of 2 wolfs and her descriptions are so clear I can picture them both in my mind. This wonderful story is both exciting and sad at the same time and I love her use of strong women figures. I just loved how feisty Lady Diana Stuart is and the kind and understanding Evander MacKenzie. I cannot say enough about this book! This story has escape, abduction, forced marriage, kindness, cruelty, abuse, starvation, patience, understanding, trust, a fight, pain, rape shame, love and so much more. You must read this book if you are like me and love historical highland romances.
