I found Alasdair to be very engaging, a strong and somewhat mysterious, stoic man who knows what he wants and is willing to fight for it. Juliana, I felt, was a bit too idealistic and much too quick to jump straight into bed with Alasdair without a second thought or any promises from him.
An enjoyable read nonetheless. The Forbidden Highlander by Terri Brisbin The MacLerie Stories, Book 9 James and Elizabeth accept the risks and embark on an elopement to seal there forbidden love before they can be torn apart by James's impending nuptials to a betrothed that loves another herself, only to be caught in a Tess of the D'Urbervilles scenario, when James realizes that Elizabeth comes to him previously deflowered.
The Rose and The Warrior
Luckily James quickly comes to his senses, on a renewed course of determination to see them bound together irrevocably before anyone can stop them. Great story with a bit of humor sprinkled here and there! I had a really hard time relating to or liking Celeste, her motives often not what I thought they should be and it took her plenty of time to finally see reason.
I felt bad for Dougal, feeling he had been yanked around enough already and didn't need any extra aggravation, but eventually I just wanted his happiness even if it had to be with her.
Overall book rating
I guess everyone deserves a second, and perhaps third, chance if they have truly seen the error in their ways and I wouldn't begrudge Celeste that in the end, and I was pleased with the way things turned out. Really surprising how good the first 2 reads are in the package. The first story, was really good, and someone had commented the second story was ok.
But I have to say I couldn't get into the 3 rd story, but I like Michelle's writing usually.
The Rose and the Warrior
But Brisbin, gets the Blue Ribbon with this. Tht 2nd story was just so sweet, how they cared for each other. I kept expected one of them to get burned by the other, and was so pleased to see their dedication, and loyalty to one another. Just touched my heart. I purchased this for the first story because the characters related to a series I had read.
I loved the first story, the second was okay, the third was very good. All three are real novella length stories not glorified short stories.

The only problem with short stories is they end too soon! All three of these authors are master story tellers these shorts are a great introduction to each if you haven't read them before you are in for a treat. The first story by Brenda Joyce was my first story by this author.
