Midnight Honor

Midnight Honor (Highlands, #3) Midnight Honor by Marsha Canham

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this book, and indeed all three books in this series. If you have a love of the Scottish Highlands and its people then I would strongly recommend you read these books. Midnight Honor could be read as a stand alone read, but you will get so much more from it if you read "Pride of Lions" and "The Blood of Roses" prior to this book, as there are cross overs with characters. "Midnight Honor" tells the story of Angus Moy and his wife Anne, who are on opposites sides leading up to the battle at Culloden, she leading her husband's clan for the Jacobites and he a chief that has pledged to fight for the English. This book is full of emotion that left me with goosebumps and almost reduced me to tears on a few occasions.

The Blood of Roses

The Blood of Roses (Highlands, #2) The Blood of Roses by Marsha Canham

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well I owe my dear friend Jenny a huge thank you for getting this book for me. I had just read "The Pride of Lions" and was left hanging as I did not have this book in my possession and through the various places I order my books, it was not available. She waved her magic wand and was able to provide me with the book.
Well I really enjoyed "The Pride of Lions" and I just loved its sequel "The Blood of Roses".
I have read books before surrounding the lead up and events of the Battle at Culloden. The Cross Stitch/Outlander series being my favourite.
I will even admit that at various points in the book I found myself shedding a tear or two.
I would highly recommend this book if you enjoy a romance set in Scotland.

The Pride of Lions

The Pride of Lions (Highlands, #1) The Pride of Lions by Marsha Canham

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Romance novels set in the Scottish Highlands are a particular favourite of mine. I had just finished reading all of Julie Garwood's novels set in Scotland, I found myself wanting more. So I did a bit of looking around on Goodreads and came across Marsha Canham and thought it sounded right up my alley and promptly ordered all three in this series.
Well I was not disappointed.
I found myself flying through "The Pride of Lions" and trying to catch 5 minutes wherever I could to sit and read a few more pages. There aren't many books I find myself absorbed in whilst stirring the dinner on the stove, and this series was just like that.
A good combination of romance and history.
I recommend if you decide to read "The Pride of Lions" that you also have the following two books ready to go, because once you get to the end of "The Pride of Lions" you will want more....
