Summary

Diana of Drummond is frantic. Tired of waiting for her to choose a husband, her ailing father has selected one for her. Unfortunately, the man he's chosen could not be further from her childhood fantasy of the perfect knight. From the instant she meets him, she knows that her betrothed would make a frightful partner. Luckily for her, the handsome, intrepid Micheil Ramsay is part of the group that escorts her to her betrothed's home. He spirits her away and promises to save her from the ruinous marriage by helping her find the knight of her dreams.

Too infatuated with all women to select just one, Micheil Ramsay is determined never to settle down. But when he rescues Diana of Drummond and brings her to Edinburgh to snare a husband, he finds himself swayed by her beauty, her bossiness, and her bravery. Now he finds himself in the position of trying to help the object of his affection woo another man.

As they embark on a rapid-fire quest to save Diana from her disastrous situation, Diana and Micheil find themselves battling their own hearts. Will they manage to overcome their preconceived notions and recognize the love that's right in front of them?

Medieval Melodrama

Sword fights, kidnappings, tantrums, and tyrants: this novel has all the ups and downs to keep a reader hooked. As with most romances half the fun is yelling from the sidelines things like "Get a clue!" And "you idiot, you love her!" Imagery and characters are developed beyond the superficial; I just wish the peril felt more dire. I was too certain he would save her every time. I liked that the plot had many twists and turn and that it didn't just end when the initial conflict was solved. It felt more like a full slice of life, albeit a rather improbable one. The only annoyance for me was the "innocence" of the protagonist; sometimes it just felt like pathetic airheadedness. Thankfully Diana was endearing in other ways.

How did he fall in love with her?

I try not to give bad reviews, but really, Diane is a spoiled brat brainless ninny. I admit that this has not been my favorite series. There are too many places where I just have to eye roll. Men are constantly referred to as “Lads” or worse “Laddies “ and women as “Lasses”. At least in the previous books the women act mostly like grown ups even if they do stupid things. In this one she acts more like she’s 12. And honestly, the author makes them contradict themselves all the time. One minute they say or think one thing, the next it’s the complete opposite. I think I’m done. This was the worst one yet, I just can’t go on. Sometimes a series will start with that kind of stuff but improve as the author continues the series, but this one is not getting any better.

Clan Grant Book 6

I really enjoy all the books in this series however this story is my least favorite. The story line is just silly. I could not feel much compassion for Diana. For a girl who is supposed to be strong and intelligent she sure makes some very stupid decisions.

Disappointed

Diana was so naïve. Some explainable, but at times it was ridiculous. I almost returned the book. However, about halfway through, it got a little better.

Another Excellent Read

Where does My Desperate Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved this story!!! awesome storyline, just the right amount of action adventure and romance.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Still love Logan and Gwyneth, Alex and Maddie, and all my other favorite characters, Brenna, Lily, Torrian, and all the other Grants and Ramsays. I have a bit less of a mental image of Michiel from this book which is a wee bit disappointing. I wish I knew how tall he is.

What about Antony Ferguson’s performance did you like?

Excellent narration as always.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, had my box of tissues at hand as always.

I like the continuation of this series.

It's always a pleasure listening to this narrator; he can be a bit "quirky" at times but it adds a bit of unintended humor to the books.

Not up to the same standard

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is the only book in the series I did not enjoy. The female lead made me want to scream. I felt like Keira was bored with the series and didn't give her characters enough thought. Almost didn't buy the next book but I'm glad I did it was back up the the standard and I enjoyed it.

Average

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The plot felt like an after thought... not as griping and the other books in the series

Has My Desperate Highlander turned you off from other books in this genre?

No - I will try the next in the series..

Would you be willing to try another one of Antony Ferguson’s performances?

Horrific.... no more words required
