[ Read Online The MacKinnon's Bride (The Highland Brides, # 1) Ü challenged-books PDF ] by Tanya Anne Crosby ☆ One of the downfalls of reading books in the same genre for a little over twenty years, is the repetitive feel they sometimes get This wasn t bad but it definitely had a been there done that feel to it it had faint echoes of a Scottish Garwood Along with the nothing new feeling I had, the insta lust and the immature heroine had me skimming some pages The story arcs of the villain feeling wronged and Page s father not wanting her were ok along with the developing romance between Iain and Page but again, not particularly original There was never an anticipation or feeling of fun to their journey This was a kindle freebie for me and because the writing and grammar was good, I d say if you re not an old hat to romances, this is definitely worth the free download. I bought this becausehad it for 0. 99 and you could get the accompanying audio for a very cheap price if you bought the Kindle version I m glad I did, because I really enjoyed it, although I did have to readthan listen due to the narrator I think he did an excellent job overall, but I can t abide listening to a male narrator voicing the heroine It s always a silly falsetto and I can t help viewing the heroine as a big dude in drag and then I giggle during the love scenes yes, I m secretly a 12 year old boy It may just be me, because this narration was rated highly by others He did do a great job with the H and all the other parts which happened to be 99% male This is the 3rd Tanya Anne Crosby novel I ve read also read Kissed Viking s Prize I enjoyed this one This book is a novella length story stretched out into novel length by a lot of silly stuff and redundant inner monologues I personally cannot enjoy fiction that contains characters who do dumb stuff that makes no sense while the author goes on and on with a lot of neurotic internal monologue in an attempt to justify the stupidity of what the character says and does In this case she was very unsuccessful since a lot of the dumb stuff e. g the idiotic singing just gag the shrew and get your sleep already was just too dumb to be justifiable Really, if the characters are genuine and the story authentic, the lengthy detours through the rumination swamp are unnecessary in this case the author could probably cut away 3 4 of this nonsense and save the reader the trouble of having to skim through so much wasted

Their romance would have been a sweet getting to know ride, but it becameabout the villain and when he would strike next But I l Overuse Use of the word mayhap should not be allowed Ever. Two Wounded People Looking for LoveFirst in a Scottish historical series, this story is set in 1118 prologue and 1124, and tells the story of Iain, laird of the MacKinnons, and Page Fitzsimon, daughter of an English earl in Northumbria Iain lost his wife when she committed suicide following the birth of their son Now, six years later, his son Malcolm has been abducted and is being held in Fitzsimon s castle Iain kidnaps Page thinking to exchange her for the boy only to learn her father doesn t want her back Still, when the earl gives Iain back his son, Iain takes Page with him to Scotland.

What s with all the in this book Are we 5 years old A heroine who wanted her father s approval but never got it A hero with his young son met heroine Abduction, rescue the young one, then abduction again then hero and heroine were attracted to each other but I couldn t figure out why I started re reading romance when I read this book over a year ago and can honestly say that I didn t know what a 5 star story was then This book isn t bad, it just has a very juvenile feeling to it Maybe it was a YA What can I say It s a bit of fluff It s true that the internal dialogues are redundant, but seriously, who would pick this up expecting to find the next Booker or Pulitzer within its pages And just because I found some of the other reviewers comments funny, I ll repeat their concern Warning there are a couple of mildly described SEX scenes in this book Likewise, I feel compelled to also warn you, there are ONLY a couple of sex scenes and they are MILDLY DESCRIBED It was a sweet story, the cover is pretty, and it s free onright now.
