Pressestimmen

Like Diana Gabaldon, Courtenay brings the Highlands, following the Battle of Culloden, to life. Readers will almost smell the heather and feel Brice's emotional pain, and they will be swept up by the atmosphere and held captive by the quick pace and tense moments. Courtenay's gift for untangling threads, so that good will triumph, is what makes this a winner. 4 1/2 stars!

Shortlisted for Historical Romantic Novel by the Romantic Novelists' Association's Awards 2012

Author Courtenay s investment in Highland history pays off big time. Brice s reclaiming Rosyth as its laird, especially as he is a stranger and potential adversary to the clansmen, illuminates a dark and struggling period in Scottish history, as well as provides evidence for the emotions and reaction Brice s return elicits. Good historical romances allow readers to romp around and experience bygone days, allow you to sympathize and relate to the characters via past events and often gives a budding relationship that extra oomph of tension. Great historical fiction builds on all of those things while grounding each and every character s motivations in the long past events. For the record, Courtenay s Highland Storms is a great historical romance."

This sequel to "Trade Winds" is passionate and engaging, with some amazingly evocative descriptions of the rugged Highlands. A great winterread."

A fabulous setting - Scotland - coupled with some vivid characters that provide romance and heartache in equal measure. As with many of the books published by Choc Lit, this one is a real treat."

Set in 1754, "Highland Storms is the sequel to "Trade Winds." While not awash with historical detail, the plot of the story itself, along with descriptions of the people and surrounding countryside, are captivating. Add treachery and romance to the mix, and you find yourself with a well written, fast-paced, enjoyable read.

Kurzbeschreibung

Winner of the 2012 Historical Romantic Novel of the Year Award (RoNAs)
Who can you trust?
Betrayed by his brother and his childhood love, Brice Kinross needs a fresh start. So he welcomes the opportunity to leave Sweden for the Scottish Highlands to take over the family estate.
But there’s trouble afoot at Rosyth in 1754 and Brice finds himself unwelcome. The estate’s in ruin and money is disappearing. He discovers an ally in Marsaili Buchanan, the beautiful redheaded housekeeper, but can he trust her?
Marsaili is determined to build a good life. She works hard at being a housekeeper and harder still at avoiding men who want to take advantage of her. But she’s irresistibly drawn to the new clan chief, even though he’s made it plain he doesn’t want to be shackled to anyone.
And the young laird has more than romance on his mind. His investigations are stirring up an enemy. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what he wants – including Marsaili – even if that means destroying Brice’s life forever …

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fantastic tale of romance and adventure! 19. November 2012
Von Confessions of a YA and NA Book Addict - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed Christina Courtenay's Trade Winds and was even more intrigued when I read the excerpt of Highland Storms, so I had to get this book. This book has a lot going on in it. It's set in Jacobite times, after the Scottish had lost and been treated brutally to break their spirit so another uprising would not be possible. Brice Kinross has suffered his own personal Culloden, when he returned home from a trip to China to find that "the love of his life" Elisabet was pregnant and married to his younger brother Jaime. Killian, his father, tells Brice to sober up and go to Scotland to check on his holdings, as he suspects something is wrong. Brice goes and does not like what he finds.

Marsaili Buchanan is the illegitimate child of Killian's cousin, who he left behind to recognized, not out of the goodness of his heart, but because she might have been the son he wanted so badly. She's been working as the housekeeper since she turned 18, for about four years now. She's also been fending off the unwanted advances of men since she started getting curves. Brice and Marsaili rub each other wrong, and don't realize that they are attracted to each other. Matters are further complicated by Seton the acting steward, and the man who has been robbing and stealing from the laird (Brice & Killian) and the addition of a rabid English soldier who hates Scottish people and revels in cruelty.

Trust me this book is great. It's a wonderful sequel to Trade Winds. I only wish that a reconciliation between Brice and Jaime was shown after Brice forgave him and moved on. But that may also be the possible opening to another Kinross story or a sequel, so I'll keep my fingers crossed!
2.0 von 5 Sternen I had high hopes but found too much cliche vapid garbage 9. Dezember 2016
Von I. Manni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

The book should have a warning for a "fiery" heroine.

A woman looks more attractive when she is enraged. While literally on the same page a man is described as someone who would have been quite handsome if he wasn't enraged. Because enraged men are scary and dangerous. Enraged women are harmless and super-pretty to look at.

The hero harasses the heroine and says reprehensible things to her, but its OK because he was just TEASING. Thats right, the fact that this man is simply having fun at this woman's expence makes it all better.

Men and women are referred to as "males" and "females" constantly.

A man is mad because a woman he "always knew he'd marry" (but wasn't engaged to) chose someone else. He decides that all women are evil bitches. And that "females" are just vaginas put on this Earth by God for men to enjoy. No really, this is the thought process of the HERO of this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very good story 19. Oktober 2012
Von Sandy Milan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book and the fact that there was a credible story to follow.

***Spoiler***
I eventually forgave the heroine for sleeping with the H even though being illegitimate, she swore she'd never do the same thing as her mother. It is an annoying feature of historical romances these days, that the main characters sleep together so easily despite possible consequences.

Anyway the story was really good and she did feel remorse and we did get to hear her feelings on the subject. Also we realise that the H had every intention of being honourable and marrying her, even though he never said anything to her until the next day,

A good read

I did not read book one of this series. I thought the writing style was childish and immature. She did not research the time period to enable her to write historically correct dialogue and a mature well developed story. I was looking for a well crafted series to read and this was not it. Vera disappointing. Kate W.
3.0 von 5 Sternen It was just OK. 13. Mai 2012

I bought this download because of the (mostly) great reviews. I should have listened to the one other review. I've been reading Historical Romance fiction for decades. It was defintely not one of my favorites. It was just too simplistic and way too much modern language for a period piece.

I do agree with the other reviewer about the heroine. She bored me. There was little depth to her character and, especially in the beginning, I didn't like her attitude very much. While she may have been kind, she also came across as overly critical of Brice, the new laird, and self-serving at times.

I also have a problem with how easily some of these heroines fall in love with the laird. C'mon, he's rich, handsome, and the laird. Considering the time period, he's their ticket to a better life. No ordinary guy will do.

Brice's character was pretty good, although I felt that walking away from his brother, his best friend, without so much as even talking with him, a little too incredible and childish.

The action throughout the book was interesting; the best part, really, and kept me reading. Another problem, which I keep finding with the most of the kindle fire books, is an apparent lack of proof-reading way too many times throughout the book.
