    The Devil of Kilmartin By Laurin Wittig


    I m partial to this book it was my first

    I was willing to overlook how corny this cover is because I know that there are many good books hidden behind crappy covers I was even okay with the premise of the story itself I haven t read any historical romances in a while and I thought it would be a fun read I love having two characters thrust together under dramatic circumstances All that said, I didn t like this at all I tried I really did, but I just couldn t get into this book The romance wasn t the best I wanted to feel the passion of [...]

    This book.I don t know what to sayFirst of all it is a book with some paranormal elements This is not usually my thing so I winced whether the heroin healed someone by rubbing her hands together The paranormal elements are however, written nicely and fit in the story well I did not mind the paranormal thing too much in this book I read other reviews and have to agree with them about the heroin Sometimes she really comes off as selfish because she was always thinking about how to protect herself [...]

    I resisted Lauren Wittig books because, IMO, Highland romances tend to be a bit schlocky Since reading Diana G s Outlander series, I tend to hold all romances esp about Highlanders up to her strong stories and characters.Wittig surprises me, yet again, weaving a tale of two lost souls who haven t a clue how much they need each other resisting all the way It sounds schlocky, but it s not It s well done, with a good touch of prophecy, healing, and Highland life in the 1300s.I truly enjoyed this st [...]

    Absorbing Highlander Romance This was Wittig s debut novel and it s a good one It won the National Readers Choice Award for short historical romance, though at 263 pages, it s not too short to interest me.Set in the Highlands of Scotland in 1307, and mostly at the Kilmartin castle, it tells the story of a beautiful auburn haired woman, Elena of Lamont, who has great healing power in her hands Her own clan s leaders would use her for their own purposes and, at her father s death, a ruthless man, [...]

    For the most part, the story was good Not over the top great but it kept me reading to see how it all played out I really liked Symon and his patience and strength when interacting with Elena As for Elena, she was torn between doing what was right and wanting to be as normal as she could She could have trusted Symon way sooner because it got old having to read about her second guessing him when it was clear he was one who could be trusted.What I didn t care for was the author s frequent explanat [...]

    All her life, Elena s healing abilities have been exploited by her clan She has been forced to heal warriors who would have otherwise died, giving her clan an edge that allowed them to continue fighting long after they should have fallen But now she s had enough Her father is dead, and a brutal outsider named Dougal has taken over the clan, even though Elena is the rightful heir Dougal tries to force Elena to marry him to give his claim legitimacy, but she flees into the night She is rescued by [...]

    view spoiler The perceived bitchiness of the heroine and the dud stud did not make me hate them I empathized with Elena when she had to be selfish to stay alive Sometimes in life, especially after a hard upbringing, it is second nature to look out for yourself when no one else has been for most of your life She is a survivor, and they are usually self involved to some degree, simply because they had to be Plus, her clan had been at odds with the clan she was among at the time, which would make i [...]

    I love historical romance for a couple reasons I enjoy being transported back to a time I never knew, to see and feel the costumes of the day, to hear the language spoken and to immerse myself in an unknown culture And of course I love love stories With Devil of Kilmartin, Ms Wittig delivered on all counts, plus a touch of fantasy I kept wondering what it would be like to have the kind of healing powers the heroine holds, to step inside a circle of grass to find magic within, and when I clicked [...]

    I cannot believe I never reviewed this The story was intense and daring I can t tell you how many times I gripped my kindle tightly when I thought something bad was going to happen, and there were times it almost did The Devil of Kilmartin is an excellent novel Special note It was the first Historical Romance novel I first read and what got me into reading Definitely worthy of reads.

    This was the first book I ve ever read by this author I got it on sale in a bundle pack which was designed, I believe, to introduce people to new to you authors.It worked very well I very much like this book I liked the characters, especially I found the mystery to be a bit easily solved and predictable pound cake sized breadcrumbs , but nonetheless, I enjoyed reading the story and I m excited to read by this author.

    This is the story of the chief of clan MacLaughlin and Elena I had already figured out the the villain was the chiefs half brother by the time it was revealed Elena was a healer however it was never explained who was the healer before her for her clan Was it her mother as I suspect Also I would have liked to know where the nickname of devil of kilmartin came from it was never explained.

    She is a healer running from the man who would make her his wife and be Laird of the Clan after her father dies She meets the Devil in the woods and he saves her from her would be husband She grows to love him in his clan and uncovers mysteries about the man who would be larid of her old clan There is a bit of sluthing involved and it is interesting.

    This book surprised me I like a good Historical Romance for light reading, but I wasn t expecting the almost super natural bent to it I did think I had the mystery solved and was pleasantly surprised that I didn t have it 100% figured out The end was a little bit sudden, but did not diminish the appeal of the characters or the story Definitely picking up from this author.

    I hate to be bluntly negative, but I barely got to the end of this book I found the main characters incredibly neurotic as well as self absorbed Couldn t develop any affection for them I m not a writer and can truly appreciate all the writers out there for the enormous amount of commitment and time they take to publish a book, however, I won t be coming back to this particular book.

    The Devil of KilmartinT was a formula type romance mystery But then,formula type romances work well for a reason They sell They sell because, for me anyway, they pretty much guarantee a happy endingter much soul searching and trials tribulations, of course Pure fun and entertainment.

    Enjoyable historical romance diversion with elements of magic Feels lite in the Diet Coke sense a quick, refreshing treat that won t be mistaken for a prize vintage Beyond the hero and heroine, the characters don t pop into the third dimension and the plot comes together too cleanly without much in the way of subplot Reads fast.
