Product Description

Cullen Duffie, a Highland warrior and charming rogue, is the new chief of Clan MacDonald. Determined to prove he’s not his father, Cullen works to secure his clan against the English. When a woman washes onto Islay’s shores, Cullen protects her from his uncles’ schemes.

Waking up not knowing who she is or where she comes from, Rose is at the mercy of the man who found her. Unable to speak from the swelling around her throat from a rope tether, she learns as much as she can about the new world around her and the powerful, sword-wielding Highlander who has sworn to protect her.

Through dreams and flashes of her past, Rose begins to rebuild her memories. But the more she recalls about the horror she escaped, the more she realizes the jeopardy she is bringing to Islay, Clan MacDonald and the Highlander who has captured her heart.

Each book in the Highland Isles series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

5.0 out of 5 stars #CANNOTGETENOUGHOFTHISYUMMYSCOT 24 May 2017
By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really want to start out by saying that this cover is absolutely 5 stars on its very own, and I wish that it was a blanket so that I could curl up with this drool worthiness, as I can't stop looking at it. Now that I got that out of my system, on with my thoughts, and opinions! Cullen Duffie is a Highland Warrior, charming rogue, and the new chief of Clan McDonald. And he's bound and determined to prove he's not his father, so he must start with securing his clan against the English. Things take a weird turn when a female washes onto Islay's shores, and now Cullen must keep her safe against his uncles plots. Madeleine wakes up not knowing who she is, or where she come from, and is unable to speak due to throat issues, so she's at the mercy of the Highlander who rescued her. As her memories start to surface, she's realizing that she's bringing serious danger to Clan McDonald. So the hero and heroine are completely awesome, as I became attached to them quickly. Cullen may carry a heavy weight, but his protective instincts made him totally drool worthy (not to mention the whole kilt thing), in my opinion. Madeleine is a female to look up to, as no matter what she's going through, she never fell into self pity. It's been a long while since I read anything about a yummy Scot, but this story reminded me why I was so obsessed with them for years. Especially since I fell in love with Heather McCollum, and her very talented writing style that instantly transported me to Islay Isle, where I never wanted to leave! My obsession has been renewed, so I cannot wait to read more by this awesome author, (and Ms. McCollum, please think about blankets of this hot as hell cover, so I have it to cuddle everyday with)! Anyway, I'll cut to the chase and just HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this fantastic story!

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of passion and emotion, this romance certainly justified my love of highlander romances 30 May 2017
By Artfullee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Set on Islay Isle in Scotland, The Rogue of Islay Isle is a sweeping love story that transcends borders and political affiliations, language, and cultural barriers. It is one to warm the cockles of your heart, illustrating the power of love and its ability to conquer all. It is a story of trust and of lovers who risk everything for the deep visceral connection they feel, and this author is now on my watch list.

Our story revolves around the newly named clan chief, Cullen Duffie, and Rose, the woman who washes up on his land, unable to speak, without memory of who she is or where she came from. With tensions high between the Scots, The English and the French, Rose’s appearance causes anxiety within the clan, but also invokes a deep protective streak in Cullen, that has him doing everything in his power to discover more about Rose and keep her safe.

Cullen had jumped the queue ahead of his uncles when he became the new clan chief, a fact they did not let him forget with their barbs and snide remarks regarding his suitability for the title. But Cullen was more than capable to become the new MacDonald, personifying what I would envisage a strong Chieftain to be. Decisive and firm, compassionate and loving, his loyalty and responsibility were to his clan, and his intelligence and quick wit made him the perfect leader. Cullen loved fiercely and completely and he felt a deep connection to Rose that went way beyond the physical, seeing into her soul and to the woman behind her eyes.

I felt so deeply for Rose. As her memory begins to return, her terrifying story unfolds and she consistently proved her mettle, facing those horrible scenes in her mind head on, determined to never go back to where she came from. She held on to her convictions when those intimidated and scared by her presence, tried first to intimidate her and then, put her life in jeopardy. She was one tough cookie and there was much to admire about her. When revelations of who she used to be surface, she doesn’t let it define her, but rather, embraces the lessons she had learned, while vowing that she will never return to her old life. I really liked Rose and she was more than a match for Cullen, both blessed with wit and smarts, cool-headedness in the face of danger, and deeply passionate nature in and out of the bedroom.

The characters surrounding Cullen and Rose were complementary to their story, each an integral part of the narrative. I particularly enjoyed Cullen’s mother and his closest friends, always there to lend support, or give advice with dry wit, when called for. Their dialogue flowed well, portraying each character’s personality with ease.

From start to finish, the author took me on a journey, visually and emotionally, so evocative that it became almost corporeal it was so well written. It was easy to imagine myself in the castle’s keep or standing on the shoreline of Islay Isle. I felt the betrayal and heartbreak down to my bones when Rose’s past confronts them and her freedom is threatened. My heart was in my throat and my eyes were wet as Cullen and Rose made their way to each other’s heart. I really enjoyed this book. Definitely another historical to add to my favourites list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Historical Sexy Romance 28 May 2017
By angelswithattitudebookreviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a new author for us and I have so say I really enjoyed our first read by them.

I loved both Cullen and Rose as he called her they were perfect together both fierce and both strong willed.This story was not to involved with all sorts of drama but was a sweet romance with a cast of character filled with humor.

I loved Rose from the beginning even suffering with amnesia I always thought she was strong willed ,confident,smart sweet and kind and definitely had a keen mind.

Cullen on the other hand fierce,loyal,kind,protective,and sexy as sin.His attraction toward Rose was apparent and the sparks where there between them whenever they we in the same room.One thing I loved the most about Cullen as he gave Rose his protection and his word to protect her without even knowing who and what she was.Although the entire clan went from a spy to Courtesan .

I enjoyed the story from beginning to end and would definitely read books by this author again.I love when you able to connect with the characters that you read about and I was able to do that with Rose and Cullen they we just so love-able you could not wish for a happy ending for them.

The story was filled with romance,hunky highlanders,deceit,lies,mystery,with an amazing cast of character that added humor into the mix causing you to smile and laugh more than once.We loved it as it was love at first sight for Cullen but he was tamed by a French lassie....Who met his match!

5 stars from us Arc copy for honest review Full review @angelswithattitudebookreviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved This Book 30 May 2017
By Angel Hatfield - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Cullen Duffie, the new MacDonald is determined to prove he’s not like his father and that his grandfather didn’t make a mistake in picking him over his uncles in being the next chief. He’s determined to protect his clan against the English that want to overrun them. One morning, after a terrible storm, he finds a woman has washed ashore. When she comes to, she has no memory of who she is and what she’s running from. Cullen must decide if she’s worth going against his clan to save her or if he should just give her up and turn her over.
This book captured me right from the beginning. The story really pulled me in. I loved both Cullen and “Rose”. I loved how Rose’s identity slowly unraveled but none of it mattered to Cullen. The interactions between him and his cousins, Errol and Broc where hilarious. They had me laughing out loud as I read them. I can’t wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars A reformed Casanova meets a "Helen of Troy" type heroine .... 15 May 2017
By FromTheSouth - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Cullen’s career up until becoming laird seemed to be loving the lasses, and I’m not talking with his heart, folks. At least that is what is often implied here. It seemed all the clan’s lovely ladies were lining up outside his bedroom door hoping to audition for a chance to be considered for the role of the next Mrs. Laid of the castle.

With a deceased father that left behind a gambling and not so stellar legacy, Cullen already feels like he couldn’t do anything right. His overly critical, jealous uncles constantly have their eyes and ears on full alert, judging his every move, just waiting for him to make a mistake large enough to be ousted as head of the clan. But no trouble they could dish out comes close to the havoc and unexpected tenderness unleashed on his heart by a mysterious bonny lass that washes up on his shores.

Rose (aka Madeleine) is bearing bruises and barely breathing when Cullen comes across her. Neck rope burns and amnesia lead everyone to speculate whether she will ultimately be friend or foe. Upon regaining her voice, her first word leads many to fear the latter. Yeah, her accent definitely gives her away. When her past and the monsters she was running from come to claim her, Cullen must face down a formidable enemy to keep his “Helen of Troy” like lady love safe.

The writing flowed and kept me fully engaged. However, Rose’s bizarre circumstances and what was intended to be her future occupation did not quite set well with me. It just all felt rather disturbing. I personally wish it had been something different.

Having read and absolutely loved the first book, The Beast of Aros Castle, I was glad to see cameo appearances of that main couple. They did come across as mere bystanders though and didn’t overly factor into this storyline.

The next book’s details have not been released yet, so, my fellow Scottish romance book loving friends, I don’t know what the author has in store for us next. I am looking forward to it, however. I do definitely enjoy this author’s writing style.
