Overbearing Chief meets Romantic Lass

I listened to this book later than many of the other reviewers so I had the opportunity to read the reviews before I listened. Because the reviews seemed mixed I didn't know what to expect. As anyone who reads my reviews knows.......I love historical romances, especially ones with Highlanders, so I eventually would have gotten to this one.

The Chief is a well written story and is a cross between historical fiction and a harlequin romance. History is intertwined nicely within the romantic story along with action, spies and a mystery. At times this book was predictable but it didn't take away any delightful moments of the story.

A few negative reviews of this book unfairly compared it to 'The Outlander' and I don't understand why. 'The Chief' is not paranormal and not 33 hours long. It is an entertaining romantic historical romance set in Scotland and that's where the comparison ends.

Overall, it was quite nice to escape to Scotland to visit an overbearing, stubborn, handsome highland chief and his curious, beautiful dreamer of a lass. Hope to visit them again in book 2.

What happened after "Braveheart"

This book (Book 1 of the third series of McCarty's historical romances) begins about two weeks after William Wallace was executed by Longshanks. It tells a very possible reconstruction of the events in Robert the Bruce's efforts to regain the Scottish crown. McCarty has woven a wonderful set of tales that are both entertaining and educational for anyone who is interested in the history of the Scots' efforts to regain their country and their freedom.
