Me But It May Bother Other ReadersAs You Can Probablybut it may bother other readersAs you can probably rom my long review I really enjoyed this book It is certainly not perfect or the Stories for a Romantic Heart: Over One Hundred Treasures to Touch Your Soul following reasons Cheesiness the characters have a grand passionrom the get go and some of the early sex scenes are corny and have some purple prose going on Misunderstandings Colin and Makenna have some misunderstandings that could have been solved by simply talking to each other Jumping into many characters heads Sometimes you would got into 3 4 different characters heads during the course of a single scene Lots of sex scenes Colin and Makenna have a very physical relationship and we see them together a lot than is probably necessaryOk so now that I have warned you just in case some of these Spain in Mind flaws are unforgiveable sinsor you let me tell you The Inheritance: Part 1 for me none of thelaws mattered This story was epic consuming and pure The Curious World Of Christmas fun to read I wanted to see Makenna succeed with being a lady of the keep I wanted to see Colin s grand strategy work I wanted to see the resentful claninally humbled in a huge way and I wanted Colin to be brought to his knees by soul searing love And guess what I got it all 5 stars LOVE OR LUSTLaird Alexander Dunstan is dying and he needs a strong Highland Warrior to wed his youngest daughter Makenna Colin McTiernay was married 2yrs before #to Laird Alexanders other daughter and McKenna older sister Deirdre She died rom a weak constitution 9 months #Laird Alexanders other daughter and McKenna older sister Deirdre She died rom a weak constitution 9 months Laird Alexanders Klan is a weak one and Colin has been training them to be great warriors The Best Canadian Animal Stories for the past 2yrs He wants Colin to become Laird when he dies so he marries the younger daughter MaKenna to Colin Herein lies the problem with the story Colin loves hisirst wife Deirdre the deceased wife is the elephant in the room and she is mentioned way to much The relationship with MacKenna and Colin is compared to much with the relationship with Colin and Deirdre The author does a pretty good job of developing a relationship between Colin and MaKenna and the sex is Hot but theirs always that nagging 3rd person in there relationship slightly keeping them apart They do get their HEA and story moves ast and kept me entertained Michele Sinclair has all the makings or a 5 star author it she learns to apply what appeals and doesn t appeal to most HR readers or any romance readers Don t bring up the ex and compare with the current partner Good book I liked the characters of Colin and Makenna as a couple But maybe I ve read too many Highlander romances and the some of the plots are just sounding the same Highland couple gets married one or both of them don t really want to marry the other the heroine happens to enjoy things that a man would normally do sword ighting riding horses etcher husband initially orbids it the clan doesn t think she will able to be a good lady of the keep the heroine rolls her sleeves up and tries to The Commemerative fix the place up and get people to like her which always seems to happen when her husband is awayor a while There always happens to be a laird of a rival clan who is maniacally evil who will always catch the heroine but she will always be saved by the Hero or by the The Magnesium Factor fact that she actually knows how to use a sword does this soundamiliar That said it was still a heart warming read and I know I will still be addicted to the Highlander romance genre or the oreseeable uture repetitive predictable plots or not Just too much darn un to read. Determined to save the lowlanders The Summer House from their enemies even if that means marrying the willful and impetuous Makenna Taming thisierce tigress will be a challenge that Colin is confident he can meet by seducing Makenna and tantalizing her with a passion that will only leave her begging Before My Heart Stops: A Memoir for. G willed heroineGRAB this series upfoogallery id51550 I will begin by saying that this book has manylaws however because of my vast enjoyment and inability to put the book down I am still choosing to give it 5 stars I m still thinking about Makenna and Colin and can t wait to revisit them in other booksThe story opens with Makenna Dunstan and Colin McTiernay entering an arranged marriage in order to save the Dunstan clan and make Colin an outsider rom the Highlands laird of the lowland Dunstan clan Both are resistant to the marriage but on lowland Dunstan clan Both are resistant to the marriage but on night before the wedding they unwittingly discover an incendiary attraction to the other After the wedding neither looked back and I LOVED this Some authors make the characters rebel against this situation and draw out the unnecessary angst but Sinclair spared me that or which I am grateful Now let me warn you there is some cheesiness here especially at the beginning What I mean by cheesiness is the grand passion trope that is ound mostly in older novels Makenna and Colin have been supposedly at odds with each other or two years but then because of one kiss suddenly understand each other s deepest desires and trust each other The sex scenes also start early in this book there had to be 6 7 of them at The Catholic Home: Celebrations and Traditions for Holidays, Feast Days, and Every Day first I was rolling my eyes at the drama and corny lines but they got better after theirst one and despite their Green Metropolis: The Extraordinary Landscapes of New York City as Nature, History, and Design freuency they didn t detractrom my enjoyment of the story In The Magic Cake Shop fact I think Sinclair put them in there on purpose Makenna and Colin both have deep insecurities butrom the beginning their attraction to each other prevents them rom holding anything back Despite the over the top beginning I could see the slow development of a solid marital oundation through intimacy private time together and physical honesty Tomboyish athletic Makenna is worried that she cannot be like her beautiful serene sister Colin s irst wife who dies rom poor health and large passionate Colin is afraid to love and lose again These characters have Beauty is a Verb: The New Poetry of Disability flashes of insight about each other but this insecurity about love threads through the entire book Atirst it was not clear why these walls existed but as the story progressed we ind out with Makenna and Colin that not everything is as it seems and perhaps their marriage can be better than they ever imagined I do not want to say
#HERE JUST IN CASE YOU READ IT BUT I #just in case you read it but I how Sinclair reveals how perception can be very different rom the truth Here is an example of Colin s insight about his wife that cracked me up Women can be the most sensible and logical beings in the universe but drag them into a discussion when they are not in the mood and watch irrationality explode Haha this is so perfect While Colin has the overbearing attitude of a typical alpha male character he relishes Makenna s American Hunger: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Washington Post Series fiery spirit and athleticism He is proud of how she can handle a sword and hasull The Mother Zone faith in her ability to learn anything she needs to know to run a keep and lead He doesn t communicate this belief well and Makenna struggles toind her place of itting in and at one point draws into herself and tries to become the wife she thinks Colin wants This was a heartbreaking part of the book and it enables Colin to inally understand what he really wants Her newly submissive nature was driving him mad He hated it and he wanted it to stop Never did he realize how much Makenna s spirit made everyone including him come alive He Needed Her Passion And her passion and he depended upon it And that right there is why I loved this book Colin and Makenna do not uite The Poke Cookbook: The Freshest Way to Eat Fish fit in and struggle withinding their place but when it comes down to it they are perfect just as they are and throughout the course of the story the both igure that out and inally The Somme: Heroism and Horror in the First World War figure out a way to communicate it I think Colin despite his overbearing ways communicates their bond best It is one thing to rely on someone to save your life but it s another to trust someone with the uality of your life The latter takes aar greater leap of Sicilian Lives faith You gave that to me almostrom the very beginning Without it I don t know if I would ever have had the courage to love again This emphasis on trust was a vital part of the book and I liked how this theme threaded throughout.
