Her Highland Rouge (Wild Highland Guardian, #1)

Her Highland Rouge (Wild Highland Guardian, #1)
By Violetta Rand

Errol MacRae’s days of gallivanting across the Highlands are nearing an end. His father’s health has taken a turn for the worse, and rumors are swirling that the crown intends to transfer ancient lands into the hands of the MacKenzies, the clan the MacRaes are sworn to defend. Errol expects to lead his men into battle soon. So he isn’t pleased when his father instead sends him to retrieve a beautiful flame-haired lass who has fled into the mountains.

Orphaned as a young girl, Aileana vividly remembers how the MacRaes rescued her and welcomed her into their clan. For ten years, she has served them loyally—until the night she’s nearly despoiled by one of the laird’s captains. Aileana risks her life and her reputation to seek refuge in the snowcapped peaks of the Five Sisters, the one place that has always felt like home. But after the strong-armed, strong-willed Errol tracks her down in a blizzard, she finds herself tempted to risk something even more dangerous: her heart.


Much better then the other time period book I read from this author. I loved her contemporary books so I tried another historical romance by her.

I liked it it had a twist that I haven't read before. I did guess the secret reveal...well part of it. The Aileana description reminded me of the character from Brave! She was a tad wimpy but seemed to find her voice along the way.

Errol was hot and sexy. A tad in love with himself, but what man isn't. It was kinda insta-love or it was in front of my face and I never saw it love. It happened really fast. Errol did take advantage of Aileana in some sense. I am glad I didn't live back then with no choices.

Good read nothing serious or soul wrenching and that is ok!

Received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley for a honest review.

Unholy Code

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley exchange for an honest review

Unholy Code
Thomas Whaite


The “Summer of Blood” explodes. The U.S. is under siege from foreign jihadists and domestic terrorists. When a brilliant exploit strikes at the heart of the National Security Agency’s own network, former NSA operative Lana Elkins discovers that it came from within the United States itself. More surprising still is the attacker: “Steel Fist,” a cyber-savvy radical white supremacist whose legions feed on his anti-Islamic exhortations. His popularity only grows when a jihadist team carries out a bold, but baffling, attack on the Louisiana coast, bringing ashore a lethal invader no one can see.

Most mysterious of all are Golden Voice, a hacker of unparalleled skill with a murderous agenda and a secret past, and Tahir Hijazi, a Muslim refugee from Sudan with his own shadowy history. When Tahir’s young nephew starts dating Lana’s daughter Emma, Steel Fist calls upon his fans to embark on a new mission: assassinate the entire Elkins family.

As extremists battle each other—with Lana fighting both ends from the middle—the conflict becomes deeply personal, the stakes tragically high.


I really wish I could give this book a higher rating than I am.  The plot and characters are complex and feel real. The only problem with this book is that throughout it. there are many sentences that seem to be missing words, so it makes it hard to read. To me, there is nothing worse than grammatical errors.  It shows that the editing job is incomplete.  
If I was going off just the over all plot this book would be a four point five star book.  I love how the over all story flows. The dialogue feels and sounds so real as you read the story.


Would I recommend this book to others? Yes, but I’ll tell them there are grammatical errors, and if you’re the type of person who can over look them, then this is a great read.

Would I read other books written by this Author?  Yes, I’d love to check out other books believing the editing process will be complete.

Is this book a Novel or Novella? Novel and a very nice length.

Is this book priced correctly? The paperback copy is a little pricey for me because I’m a budget book buyer, but the eBook is priced correctly.
