I love passion! I write a lot of scenes in my books that inspire that tumble in your tummy. But, I also like when your tummy tumbles, BUT there's actually a plot.

Now, I have no problem with religion. They were both reluctant to put the clan MacGregor in whatever danger might follow her, yet she was not forthcoming with information on the situation and he didn't insist on knowing what they were up against. As a result, for years he has put aside his own pleasures, honing his swordplay and making decisions for the clan alongside his father, all the while knowing that any weakness of body or mind could destroy everything he holds dear. Thanks for telling us about the problem. About Paula Quinn. It was good but kind of predictable and pretty much like a lot of other highlander books.
This book keeps you guessing from the first to the last page, never knowing which way the story will turn or how it can possibly end. Quinn's descriptions are so vivid that you have no problem easily picturing them in your mind or feeling them in your heart. Her characters are rich, well developed, and multi-layered. I loved the interactions between Davina and Rob. Like all Highlanders, Rob can take a man's head from his shoulders in a blink of an eye, but he was so gentle and patient with the secretive and emotionally-guarded Davina.
This book is filled with adventure, danger, tenderness, passion, deep intrigue and mystery. Quinn also weaves historical figures seamlessly into the storyline which enhances and adds a fascinating spin to it. It was also great to re-visit characters from Ms. Quinn's previous books.
Callum and Kate play significant roles in "Ravished by A Highlander. I always enjoy visiting with characters I came to love from an author's previous books and finding out how their lives turned out. Obvious now who the Children of the Mist are. I thoroughly enjoyed "Ravished by a Highlander" and highly recommend it. As a final note, my first encounter with the work of Paula Quinn was in December of A friend of mine who knows my passion for Highlander romances gave me "Laird of the Mist" as a Christmas present.
By the end of the book, I was totally hooked on the work of this wonderful author. Since that Christmas in , I have acquired all of Ms. Quinn's books. Each one, without exception, has drawn me in from the first page, has kept me on the edge of my seat and has taken me on an emotional rollercoaster, all the while never knowing where it was going to take me or how it was going to end. Oh, I always knew the guy was going to get the girl in the end.
But was a ride it has always been! If you haven't read Paula Quinn, I strongly suggest you pick up one of her books. You won't be disappointed! View all 4 comments.

Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye sounds somewhat like "Kill-ock-in". Kyleakin, Isle of Skye, Scotland The characters are interesting, well-developed, and all left with a bit of mystery about them. Even at the end, I was unsure at times how the plot would develop and was waiting for betrayals to occur by those we were conditioned to trust, or by acts of martyrdom by those we came to love.
Lady Davina Montgomery has been hidden away in a convent in Scotland after the death of her mother when she was a child.
Her true identity is unknown to most and she is presented to the world as a young novice. She is now 24, and with a small army sworn to protect her, her life is torn apart by an act of betrayal which causes the deaths of nearly everyone around her. She is rescued at the last moment by a Scottish highlander, who just happens to be traveling near the convent with a few of his men when they hear the clash of swords, women's screams, and the smoke from the burning abbey.
Although Davina is reticent about exposing her identity, her rescuer, Robert MacGregor, knows she is of some importance, but is unable to leave her protection to anyone else now that he has met her, so he brings her to his home on the Isle of Skye, a castle hidden away among the mists in the higher reaches of the hills. By the time his suspicions of her parentage are confirmed, it is too late. He already loves her and is sworn to protect her, knowing that doing so could bring war to his clan.
Il tanfo di catrame bollente e di carne bruciata le pungeva le narici e le irritava gli occhi, ora rivolti al prato oltre le porte, dove alcuni uomini a cavallo si stavano ancora battendo con furia, animati da un odio implacabile. Eppure quello non era odio: Nessuno sa della sua esistenza, eccetto le suore e il capitano Edward Asher, che veglia su di lei con un reggimento di soldati.
Sedotto dal fascino della ragazza, Rob decide di offrirle la sua protezione. Durante la battaglia, i difensori vengono aiutati da Rob MacGregor, figlio di Callum e Kate, personaggi che abbiamo avuto modo di conoscere nel libro Il diavolo delle Highlands, pubblicato nella collana Passione.
Asher che sembra in fin di vita, lo supplica di salvare Davina e di portarla al sicuro. E poco importa se si sia pentito.
Anche la politica ha un posto importante, e spesso vedremo i due protagonisti parlarne, infarcendo i discorsi di avvenimenti storici reali e personaggi realmente esistiti. Nonostante questo, si legge con piacere, la coppia riesce ad essere interessante ed ho trovato piacevolissimo rivedere Il Diavolo e la moglie Kate.

Ravished by a Highlander is mysterious tale of forbidden love and desire. Forced together by betrayal, a secretive English woman and a strong Scottish Warrior must fight to keep the truth of her birthright hidden for it has the power to change the structure of the Crown. Robert MacGregor is a fierce highlander. The oldest of the MacGregor clan, he prepares himself for his destiny to take over the clan. Assuming the leadership role, he never once questions if this is the life he would desire if given a choice until he rescues Lady Davina Montgomery.
Davina Montgomery lives a very sheltered life. Davina hides out at the Abbey, waiting for the day her life will change once she is revealed to society. Holding her secret identity dear to her, she embarks on an adventure to the Highlands with Rob and his men. Scared for her future, Davina tries so hard to hide her secret from Rob but slowly the pieces are put together and once the truth is revealed, they realize their love will be denied by all. It was truly fun to watch the characters fall in love with one another.
Rob is a true alpha in every sense of the word. I found myself laughing at his brooding ways as he fought his attraction to Davina. When he finally falls, boy there is nothing that could stop him from being with Davina.
The choices he makes to be with her, moved me. He is willing to turn his back on everything he loved. I felt the attraction from Davina immediately. I shared in her delight as she is finally able to taste a bit of freedom while she is with Rob on their journey. Though she knows the risk, her desire to be with him is much stronger and she finally puts her trust in him. Paula Quinn provided a gang of sexy Scots as secondary characters.
The men are each likeable and distinguishable in their own rights. I really enjoyed the story.
Discovering that there are previous books, I immediately put them on my list of books that I must buy. I recommend this book for true historical romance fans. Trust me. It was honestly a treat to get the brooding Robert MacGregor as the obstinate and loyal hero, who made me swoon a little, even with the medium steam, PLUS his brothers and cousins, especially Colin MacGregor and Connor Grant, whose charm oosed from the words.
In this tale, I got the mystical description of the Isle of Skye and the castle of Camlochlin. I got the brutal fights between highland "Trust me, Davina. I got the brutal fights between highlanders and treacherous traitors of the crown.
I got a sweet heroine, Davina, who went to mush over her highland protector and believed in his love so confidently. I got the intrigue of the Callum MacGregor, Rob's father and the famous clan laird. The wonder of his love for his wife, Kate, his sons and his clan, was such that he wouldn't budge for even the highest royal in England. I got the doting Maggie, the MacGregor aunt who is an added balm as well as a shadowed lady. It was all so entertaining, with the imitated burr of the audio's narrator and the "doonas," "willnas" and "bairns".
I found no fault with the way the story was told or with the simple, common plot of a king's secret daughter. All' tis well! A solid 4 stars Happy reading. View all 5 comments. At first I was a little squeamish about seeing Robert as a fully grown and drool-worthy man. In the book I read before this he was a baby hanging on his mother's hip. I never had gotten the chance to see him as a grown up before, so I almost felt a bit "cougarish" reading about his rippling muscles and his low-hanging kilt.
But, being the great author she is, Paula Quinn helped me overcome my awkwardness. I will say that I loved that she still gave Robert moments of panic at the thought of his f At first I was a little squeamish about seeing Robert as a fully grown and drool-worthy man.
I will say that I loved that she still gave Robert moments of panic at the thought of his father disapproving of his actions. Good to see Callum is still a force to be reckoned with, even to his own sons.
I really liked this book. It brought tears to my eyes towards the end. I won't ruin it for you, but really I felt the anguish.
Then I felt the love. Then more anguish, then more A really good read. One thing I want to see in the next one though: I want to see that Claire's cussing has survived through the years. I kept waiting for one of her kids to yell out something about Satan's Balls.
Come on, please? Just once, for me? View all 3 comments. Mar 11, Lela rated it liked it Shelves: I've had this on my shelf to read forever and I can honestly say I'm sorry I waited. Davina Montgomery was given to the convent at birth to protect her, although she knows her true parentage. For years her only companions have been the nuns and an English captain who guarded her.
Even though she kept her true identity a secret, one day the convent is invaded and everyone is viciously murdered. But before it is all over Robert MacGregor and his brothers ride up and quickly dispatch the soldiers a I've had this on my shelf to read forever and I can honestly say I'm sorry I waited. But before it is all over Robert MacGregor and his brothers ride up and quickly dispatch the soldiers and rescue Davina.
It takes most of the book for her true identity to be revealed but Rob doesn't care and neither does Davina. She loves Rob above all else even if it means defying her father until that comes to pass and suddenly it isn't that easy to defy a man whose love you have always wanted even for a man who completes you in ways you never knew you were empty.
It was a terrific story with a very happy ending. Carrington McDuffie was a marvelous reader and really enhanced the story. Mar 23, Megan rated it really liked it. Great highlander book.. I feel like I need to read her other series first. I think it's about Rob's parents. Sigh I need a reading order that combines everything. I tried to figure it out but I was at work and I was attempting to work It was good but kind of predictable and pretty much like a lot of other highlander books.
Rob was adorable.
I think he is one of my favorite highlanders because he didn't try to hide his affections. So thats it Great highlander book.. So thats it. Jul 30, Nevena Pejcic Neca rated it it was amazing.

I've read a lot of romances, particularly a lot of highlander romances, and was prepared for a cheesy, unrealistically wanton portrayal of testosterone and damsels in distress.
I was pleasantly surprised to find both of those elements, but in no way were they cheesy. I think they could have easily crossed that line, but something kept it on the sensible side of ridiculous. I must note that I listened to the audiobook, and Carrington MacDuffie did a fantastic job!
Her Scottish accent was excellent, and she did male voices very well, even varying the tones and inflections to distinguish between them. Ironically, it was her narrative of Davina that gave me trouble.
The only way I can describe how she made the heroine sound is to bring to mind a man taking on a falsetto and pretending to speak as a woman in mockery.
Davina's "voice" was so high and fake that it made me cringe at times. Otherwise, she simply brought the story to life. There were only two issues I had with the story. The first is that I didn't buy the evil guy just taking a brief look at Edward on the ground and being satisfied he was dead.
He didn't seem the type to leave survivors, so I was amazed he didn't have his men checking each body for signs of life, especially an English captain. Even back then they had to know what pulses were. And it sounded like they stood near Edward and mulled around for a while--I have a hard time believing no one noticed him breathing in all that time, or the fact that he hadn't turned gray or rigor mortis hadn't begun to set in.
But I understand that Edward's survival, while not integral to the plot or even the subplot, did change how the story unfolded. While he wasn't an evil character, I seriously disliked him, and--don't judge me--was glad when he died. Secondly, I found it a bit odd that Rob didn't insist on an explanation from Davina as soon as they were out of immediate danger.
They were both reluctant to put the clan MacGregor in whatever danger might follow her, yet she was not forthcoming with information on the situation and he didn't insist on knowing what they were up against. I can't imagine a smart and cunning warrior, leader, like Rob allowing himself and his men to go about blindly.
It's one thing to protect against danger, but to fight and win you have to use strategy, and strategy will only work if you know exactly who the enemy is. I'm not sure why Quinn delayed the information with excuses of distrust and fear, my guess would be to build suspense and drama, but I don't think much, if anything, would have changed timeline-wise if Davina had divulged her secret sooner. I kept expecting Rob to get high-handed in the interest of responsibility and act like the laird's first born that he is and demand answers.
I'd never read Paula Quinn before, but if all her books are this good, she will be joining my keeper shelves. I'll start by finishing this series! I really, really hope the following books are just as wonderful, though too often the quality of subsequent novels declines. Fingers crossed!
I just checked out Ms. Quinn's website and learned that most of her books revolve around the MacGregor clan, in generations. Knowing that, I think I'll wait to read more of her until I can start at the "beginning.
I've never really gotten into the series that span generations The concept sounds creepy. Idk, we'll see. Can the ashes of his heart be stirred into flame by his enemy? Already have an account?
