Review:   Mary Wine’s Highlander books are a really good series. I hate that I’m starting with the fifth one, The Trouble With Highlanders.

Daphne needs all the help she can get. Her clan has lost everything. She doesn’t know how they will survive the winter. Everyone knows that she gave her virginity to the overlord Norris Sutherland. Everything is up in the air because there is no male to take over and she steps in even though she is a woman.

Norris is a very strong and just Overlord. He can’t get Daphne off his mind even if she was the one that walked away. He decides to go see her because her dowery is in question. Also because he wants to see her.

It had a slow start to it and I didn’t know if I would be able to get into it. I’m glad that I decided to give it a chance and kept on reading. That’s when things started getting very interesting. I couldn’t put it down after that.

I enjoyed watching Daphne and Norris banter back and forth. It was so exciting to watch and really you could say they were both the winner. The sex between them could’ve set the sheets on fire but they didn’t always have sheets. Norris wasn’t ashamed like most men would be. He knew he was hooked and he didn’t care who seen.

Of course Norris being a highlander he did let his temper get away from him. I loved when he would pick Daphne up and put her over his shoulder for everyone to see.

You know out of every romance nothing is ever smooth sailing. You have a spoiled little witch. Well that’s the nice word that I will call her. Sandra Fraser is her name and she is after Norris. Will she get him by whatever means she can? I guess you’ll just have to read to find out.

I enjoyed this story and loved how the characters interacted with each other. I hope that I get to learn more. I just know that some of them has to have their own stories and can’t wait to find out which.

I have never read a book by Mary Wine but, I just want to say that I truly like her writing style. I felt the fear and the love that Daphne was feeling and that takes a lot for an author to do. So I want to thank her for pulling me into the story and letting me experience everything that her characters where doing.

So now I’m ready for the next Highlander that will come into my imagination. I highly recommend this book to everyone because the sex was out of this world. What would you expect with a Highlander.
