How to Handle a Highlander (The Sutherlands)
Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2014
I struggled between a 4 and a 4.5 stars on this. Decided on a 4. I liked Gahan and wanted him to have a good story. I guess part of that was taken away because Moira and Gahan never really speak to each other. The only time they spend together is a few quickies basically. Also as in most all her stories there are things that do not make sense. She also brings up things, and then never references them again, so a lot of times you have no idea why she brought it up. SPOILER: In this one she has Moira running from her supposed husband Achaius Matheson, because he said, she didn't bled since she had been home, so he was going to let her have Gahan's baby, then kill Moira, and then claim the child as his so he could get Fraser land, when her brother Bari died. She ran to Gahan and told him this. A fire interrupted them after she told Gahan this, and it is never brought up again that she is probably pregnant. If she was I think they both would have been happy about it, and it would have been talked about. However it is ignored the rest of the book, even though her husband died. So they are free to marry. END OF SPOILER. She also makes a reference that the King notices that a page slights him, because he told him to rise, but the page doesn't do it until he looks over at Lord Holmes and he tells him to rise. That is all that is said. I do not know what the point or that is unless later in the series the King is going to get rid of Lord Holmes. I was happy that she is going to actually do another book about Saer and Naveen. Her Other series she sets up for other books after the third one and then never did anymore. I was not happy about that. This series she is also doing to quick of endings. She does about a page where they are finally together, and then writes stuff to set up for her next book. I would have rather had more to do with the couple in each book instead.
Anyway all in all a decent book if you do not want them in-depth, or care if she leaves stuff out, or writes things occasionally that do not make sense. It's a quick fast read. I enjoy most of her writing, and she does seem to be getting better at not writing so much that doesn't make sense anymore. I like Moira and Gahan, but I do not really like stories where the one of them are married to someone else, even if it is to an old man that can't perform in bed. I really do not care for them going behind someone's back to get together. Even if they try to say the marriage was never consummated so they weren't really married. That also accounted for only making it 4 stars.
