    review posted on Demon Lover's Books & More 3.5 I have got to stop reading Hannah Howell books. I just don’t enjoy them. All too often I find the same story or plot device just in a different book. I think this is one of those authors I’m just going to have to part ways with. For those of you who like Hannah Howell, this is one of her better heroines. I really liked Gilly, which is funny since I didn’t care for her in Highland Knight. Gilly has grown into a realistic and intelligent woman. When ap review posted on Demon Lover's Books & More 3.5 I have got to stop reading Hannah Howell books. I just don’t enjoy them.

For those of you who like Hannah Howell, this is one of her better heroines. I really liked Gilly, which is funny since I didn’t care for her in Highland Knight. Gilly has grown into a realistic and intelligent woman. When approached by 3 different lairds whose lands bordered the small keep and land she was given, she outwitted them time and time again. BUT she also realistically knew that she was being given an option to choose her husband, which is far more than most women were allowed. This is where my issues came into play. I didn’t really care for the hero. I did understand why he was the way he was, I just didn’t like it. All of his reasons really just made me like him less. I think that the plot with Gilly and the mistress was a good idea, but I didn’t like how oblivious the men were. Which I know is part of the Hannah Howell sense of humor-men need a good woman and are completely clueless without one, but still... Not my cuppa. I think I’ll just leave this at if you like Hannah Howell, you’ll like this one. ***Review copy provided by Kensington Publishing

    Loved reading this book. You will fall in love with the fun characters. Gillyanne is a little fireball, and sweeps Conner away with her love and strength. Conner is hansome and fierce, but needs a guiding hand in thier relationship. Have fun reading this one.

    I have always loved Gillyanne's character throughout the Murray series, her book did not disappoint. Gillyanne Murray has dower lands gifted to her from her father's kinsmen and she decides that she is going to go visit them and the keep there. Gillyanne has always felt that men never paid any attention to her and she was wanting the romance that her cousins had found. Afraid she will never marry, Gillyanne decides she'll just become the laird of her dower lands. Unknown to her, the three lairds I have always loved Gillyanne's character throughout the Murray series, her book did not disappoint. Gillyanne Murray has dower lands gifted to her from her father's kinsmen and she decides that she is going to go visit them and the keep there. Gillyanne has always felt that men never paid any attention to her and she was wanting the romance that her cousins had found. Afraid she will never marry, Gillyanne decides she'll just become the laird of her dower lands. Unknown to her, the three lairds that surround her dower lands have their eye on the land and after not knowing who owned the land, they go to court and are told by the king that an unwed lass holds the lands and 'suggests' that one of them marry her to gain the lands. This sends the three lairds to the small keep's gate seeking her out. As with Murray tradition, they are allowed to seek out someone they love and marry them instead of the standard treaty/arranged marriage. She advises the lairds that she will not accept any of them. The lairds decide that they will each take a day to try and storm the keep and capture the lass and wed her and get the lands. Gillyanne defeats each of the attempts with Murray flair and gains the ire of the lairds. To avoid a joint attack by all three lairds that would lead to the bloodshed she has worked to avoid, Gillyanne agrees to wed the least bruised ego and the one who seemed to find her victory over the lairds almost hilarious -Sir Connor MacEnroy. After surviving and rebuilding from a devastating feud that decimated the MacEnroys, Connor has kept the rigid wall up between himself and his feelings as he has been led to believe that as a laird he needs to be stern and if he were 'soft' his kinsmen would think less of him. Behind closed doors (and away from his kinsmen), Connor's relationship with Gillyanne is fine but he is unable to verbally express his feelings for her and Gillyanne cannot sense his feelings. Gillyanne wants more than a sexual connection with her husband and she's willing to leave him if she doesn't get it. This is a great Hannah Howell book and lives up to the fireball Gillyanne.

    This is Gillyanne Murray (daughter of Eric and Bethia Murray in Highland Promise) and Connor MacEnroy--his siblings have stories (Fiona of 11 knives/Highland Warrior, etc). Eric and Bethia didn't follow tradition of the time period and made sure EACH of their children had their own "lands."

    This is the first book I have read by this author, and I am disappointed. I did finish the whole book, though, so I could write a fair review.

She had spunk and she was quite amusing. Otherwise, it would have been an easy one star rating. I found two major turnoffs for me in this novel. First, I thought the hero, Conner, was a dud. His character started off well, being amused and appreciative of Gillyanne's efforts to stall him and his companions from whisking her off and marrying her for her land. After marrying her, glimpses of Connor's feelings were few and far between. Not knowing how to treat a woman has been used before in historical romance, but here it just doesn't work. If anything his character seemed to regress into a neanderthal ignorant oaf, an alpha male wannabe, and close to one-dimensional. Wow, that sounds really harsh, but I haven't run across such a total unlikable hero in a long time. Maybe I need to read more. Anyway, this leads to beef number two. Despite his lack of expressive feeling towards her she falls in love with him anyway, and way too soon in the story. Ironically, Gillyanne is supposed to have a gift that lets her sense what another is feeling, but she cannot sense his. Could it be he doesn't really have any? I think it would have been a lot more interesting if she could sense them, and then maybe falling for him so fast might have been somewhat believable. I'd like to end with a positive note, so as to balance the review out a little bit. I liked some of the other characters very much, and her family has some dimension and appeal. Since this book is part of a series, perhaps the others are better. I'll be taking a pass, though.

    4.5 stars. I really enjoyed Gilly and Connor. I remembered her as this precocious girl in the previous books and she didn't disappoint as an adult. I found her initial defence of her property against her three supposed "suitors" quite inspired. Connor seems a bit dour and cold at the beginning but you can see how much he had to take on as a half-grown boy when all the adults were killed in his clan. Especially when the only adult example was his misogynistic uncle. I am looking forward to reading 4.5 stars. I really enjoyed Gilly and Connor.

    This book Rocked! I loved the humor she added to her book. It reminded me of Lindsay Sands writing. Gilly is a spirited Murray that I enjoy reading about, not one bit afraid of how big her husband is to tell him how she feels (both verbally and physically). It was comical to read about Conner and his lame ass attempt to bed his virgin bride. It was even more enjoyable when Conner's whore tried to tempt Conner in front of Gilly at the dinner table.

I tell I'm with Gilly had I lived in those days and my man had a whore let alone one that chose to rub her nasty tits against him and for him to think nothing of it I would of handled just as she did. I have been so disappointed with other books not giving me this, "Walk away good feeling," lately. For me this book had the excitement in it you want to read about, it had the neanderthal male who once again a woman had to train to be a real husband, it had humor, love, a bad ass woman willing to fight for what was hers, but above all it kept both main characters figuring it out together and lately the books I've chose have the couple apart with ridiculous misunderstandings that frustrate me. If your looking for a book to make you laugh and just let go of the day to day BS and feel good look no further than this book.

    This is, I admit, a reread for me. This was the first book that I read by this author and I was very eager to go back, once I realized that it was a part of a series, and read the previous ones in the series. This was so loosely connected to the previous books that it was almost like a standalone, which was good the first time I read it, and even to a point, this time.

This book is about a couple that is learning to overcome their differences, their misunderstandings, and learning to trust each other, and grow, not only closer to each other, but closer to their families. This is a slower paced book, but it flows evenly and well. A lot happens, but the plot is very much character driven and it needs to be understood that while it seems to be mostly romance, there is some intrigue involved, and learning more about family members and their past.

Gillyanne owns property that Connor and three other lords want, they force her to choose one of them after a brief siege. Connor is remote and has funny ideas about how to treat a lady wife and Gillyanne quickly disabuses him of most. Lots of fun moments, especially her ability to let the keep know when dinner is about ot be served from her vocalness in the bedroom. It's not a smooth ride as people plot against them and Connor's funny ideas trip him up, but a great read.

The book is about 3 clan leaders(laird), fighting to marry Gillyanne just to get her dowry land, which is between their lands. She eventually chooses one,Conner, to prevent bloodshed. Once Conner finds out she was chosen he quickly and forcefully marries her. He also quickly consummates the marriage(which I think lasted 30sec-terrible I tell you and she complained of no pain...I am not convinced). Soon when she is in Connor's land she learns of his leman,Meg. The book is basically about Gyllyanne and jealous Meg. Gyllyanne is not typical goody girl especially to Meg. They bitch fight in the whole book. I don't know where Conner is or who he is because Gyllyanne character overwrites his and he pretty much ends up listening to whatever his new wife says or wants. Gyllyanne has some special abilities...ooohhh woow...not really because they are called 6th sense!Oh and she heals quickly...big deal. I honestly stopped reading after like 80% of the book.I couldn't continue especially when there are so many juicy books out there, that have a far attractive storyline staring at me on my e-reader.I just don't care about the ending!

    I am very new to Hannah Howell's writing, but i've read about 10 of her books in the last 2 months. Though I was entertained enough by the plots to keep reading them, I continued to buy them to see if I was going to finally see some originality from one story to the next.

Not that I care, but the redundancy was extremely annoying to me. The sexual experience was exactly the same in all the books i've read with all the women being "bold" and the men doing "that one thing" for the first time to their brides. And, I am still trying to understand what is up with the cats? Maybe I should keep reading, but so far.... not a big fan. Like I mentioned earlier, it is entertaining reading but not impressive at all. And, some stories are better than others, of course.

Very enjoyable read and I would definitely recommend this book.

The dialogue was written phonetically according to the accent (e.g. doesnae instead of doesn't) and it was irritating to read in the beginning--I very nearly quit--but either I got used to it or she lightened up with it further along.

    Another Howell historical romance about the Murray clan, with all the similar plot devices that can be expected from that.

    This has it all. A manly man, a heroic woman, and romance. I really enjoyed this story. I have always loved the tartness of Gillyanne and was glad to see her have a most interesting story. Although, there were many times I wanted to smack Connor, the overall story was great. It was nice to see that she was able to show him the error of his ways and work her way into his heart. This is a story that you can read over and over again and find more to like about it.

    Highland Humor Gillyanne is a Murray lass. These lasses are blessed with a family who embraces them with love and worth. They are taught many things and can marry for love.

Gilly was forced to choose one. He did not know how to treat a woman. I was just as angry as Gillyanne in many circumstances of how Connor, her husband, treated her. There was a kidnapping, a traitor or two and a whole clan of people who loved her. She was a fortunate person to have all the people she had to love her. Loved reading.

    Love this book! I have read all of the books in the Murray series at least twice. This one is my favorite. I love the Gillyanne! Opening a book is a commitment and I always force myself to finish even if the book sucks or has terrible spelling errors in it (those are the hardest). Every so often I will read a few books that just don't grab me and I feel like I've just wasted a few hours of my life on them. When that happens, I pick up this book and flip to one of my favorite parts. Then I'm ready Love this book! I have read all of the books in the Murray series at least twice. This one is my favorite. I love the Gillyanne! Opening a book is a commitment and I always force myself to finish even if the book sucks or has terrible spelling errors in it (those are the hardest).

    I read this years before. But to reread it now was just as good as then. Conner and Gillyanne have a courtship after the marriage and lots of suspense. He and two other knights basically corner her and made her decide which one to marry. Her lands was dab in the middle of all three others. And to control it one had to marry. Now he and she must find a middle ground without giving up on what they grew up believing was right. But with intrigue of someone in the clan wanting her dead he has his han I read this years before.

But in the end will she stay or leave?

    It's always a win win when I smile as I turn the last page Gillyanne and Connor had the most unusual courting I've read especially in this series so far. I will not give away too much of the play of this book as it's so unique with several twists and turns. Look for the word "bellowing" and you'll laugh out loud; also look for Gillyanne's father, Sir Eric towards the end "mumble bellow" in a soft tone. Well done Hannah, you hit a home run from me.

    It was bittersweet. I really love the strong heroine, but too much ow drama for my taste and I almost dnf the book because of the almost cheating thing by H. I wanted to read the others books, but learning the others H had bastards with his mistresses tainted the wish of reading their stories, and I realise with this author is a common thing, so I guess I got lucky with this book where H did not had a bastard with his whore.

    A quick read. Not a bad story. It drug in places and there is NO WAY that men actually have conversations like the men in this book. And the endless psycho-analyzing got old really quickly. I skipped a lot of dialogue that was a repeat of the same thing. Other than that, it was a good lite read.

    One of my Go to Books.... I have this in paperback and have can't count how many times I have read this when I want a good laugh in a love story. This Murray clan is something in this series, I am either laughing or crying. Finally got this on my kindle, am working on getting the rest of the clan. Great highlander love stories that will definitely get your emotions going. One of my Go to Books....

    Great! I was hoping for a romance between Gilly and the older knight Leirgan (sp) from the previous book. That would have been interesting!!!
