Marti Talbot's Highlander Series 1
I usually prefer books to short stories, but this set that were linked worked well. The characters are likable and the stories had interesting twists. I liked the role played by the English king. I will probably read more.
This story is a collection of three different romances from the same family. Each are very similar and reads the same as the last. Female protagonist is desired by male lead character but doesn’t want to get married. She is injured and has to be cared for by the man and carried on his horse with him for a while and the she quickly shifts to be madly in love with him usually within one chapter. Lacks character development. This would have been better is more time and care would have been taken with the Kevin and Anna romance and if this would have been properly developed.
I enjoyed the characters and the story.
