      5 stars – Historical RomanceWOW! I loved this! What an awesome start to an enthralling new highlander historical romance series about an elite fighting guard of warriors handpicked by Robert the Bruce to partake in a secret mission to free Scotland from English tyranny by overtaking the throne from King Edward’s rule.Robert the Bruce’s elite force, the Highland Guard is made up of the best of the best, warriors from the Highlands and Western Isles, selected for their exceptional skills and [...]

      Pues la verdad es que me ha gustado, tanto la historia como los personajes. Tengo que confesar que me daba un poco de 'miedo' leer este libro, porque pensé que sería como todos los de los Highlanders, pero no es así. En cada página se nota el proceso de investigación que ha hecho la autora y la historia tiene su punto de originalidad. Realmente este inicio de saga promete!

      Beautiful pictures of Isle of Skye.I think the there is something about the lighting in that part of the world.★★★½☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Hmmm. I don’t know about this one. Several of the people I did a “buddy read” with in the GoodReads Western and Medieval Romance Lovers Group LOVED this highland romance (with several 5★); however, they read it while I listened. I certainly had to get used to Robert McNab’s narration. He did great job on the men. Nevertheless [...]

      Basic set up: Robert the Bruce needs an elite guard of highlanders who don't fight by the *knightly code of honor* who can go in and do the dirty work that the *true knights* won't do and send the awful English King Edward back south of the border where he belongs. They want Tor MacLeod to train and lead the elite force, but he's not interested so more devious means are contrived and Christina Fraser is the bait. Christina is happiest spending her time reading romance novels (I loved how it was [...]

      4 starsThe Chief is a well written and informative book that in many ways felt more like an historical fiction (the quality of the author's research is very apparent) than a romance novel. However, when the hero and heroine were together they certainly steamed up the pages. Their love story was captivating, heartwarming, and at times heartbreaking. Their much deserved HEA warmed my heart. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

    7. ♡Karlyn P♡ on said:

      Smoking hot Highlander historical, reminds me of the best of Julie Garwood but with more heat. I really loved this one. It begins a new series, and I think it will be required reading for this series too as it really sets up the premise of a highly trained group of warriors fighting to free Scotland from King Edward and give Robert the Bruce his kingdome. Wonderful and fasinating as it wove real history into the story. My only niggle with this book is that the dialog seamed a bit contemporary be [...]

      WOW! Monica McCarty, you earned a follower for life!This book managed to push all my buttons I'm a sucker for a Highlander!! There, I admit itSet in the magnificent Isle of Skye, off the West Coast of Scotland,Try resisting thisin the year of our Lord 1305. Edward Plantagenet has crushed the Scottish resistance. William Wallace has suffered a traitor's death and Scotland, Highlands and for the first time in their history the Isles are under the rule of the English Crown. The land is savaged, peo [...]

      Highlanders make my barfy tummy feel better, apparentlySo I tackled this thing today whilst home sick and enjoyed it. Don't feel much like going in to deets. Just telling you that I will read the next in the series. I'm giving it 3.7777777 solid fist bumps.

    11. Laura the Highland Hussy on said:

      Wow, what an amazing first book! This is book one in the Highland Guard series, and I was more than impressed. Sometimes an author comes along who puts so much history into a novel that it is like reading a textbook. Monica McCarty is NOT one of those, in fact the history of William Wallace and the time of the Bruce was inserted so seamlessly that it hardly felt like I was reading history. It was part of the story, and part of Christina and Tor's romance.Christina's father is a noble who hates K [...]

      Just what I needed, a tough Scotsman, unable to love, at least he thinks that is the case. Christina - you can get in trouble reading romantic novels - real life is not all Lancelot and Guinevere. but you did get your HEA after plenty of passion, power struggle, deaths, fighting etc etc. etc. First time reading this author but will definitely check out some more of her books. I am heading to Scotland at Easter - Skye was not on our list of places to visit but might just add it in now. Hopefully [...]

    13. Ashley the Magnificent™ on said:

      The Chief features a codependent heroine and a fierce, distant hero. They very rarely converse. It is actually 2 books in one. The first takes place from about pages 1-300. Let's call this story "What Tor's Balls are Doing". The second takes place from pages 300-end. We'll call this one "Actual Interesting Plot". "What Tor's Balls are Doing" (aka pages 1-300) was not my favorite part of the book, but the nudity kept me goin'. The chick here, Xtina, goes from strong female to lovey man-worshiping [...]

      Highlander and historical - these two words always got meI was expecting something easy to read without too much past, but this was too much for me!I'll read the next book because I want to know if something would be different and I have nothing more to say will see!

    15. Kathleen on said:

      I must say that I LOVED this book. Monica sure knows how to write a great story with steamy love scenes and a to die for hero. I'm looking fowards to the next book in this series.

    16. Duchess Nicole on said:

      I really like this book. It's sort of a classic story of woman loves man, man is too manly and warrior-like for her, doesn't know how to love. They have a great bedroom relationship, though. But the characters were likeable, and the guys are yummy. The author fully admits to having some sketchy historical facts throughout the book, but I think it's great that she really did some research on Scotland's history and tried to incorporate some real people and events. It's sort of her version of how t [...]

    17. Tinsoni on said:

      What a great way to start my year of reading. Monica McCarty is hands down an amazing writer. I was really impressed by her in depth research of the period and her ability to fictionalize King Robert's wars to reclaim Scotland. The hero of the story was likable as well, but I did not like the heroine. She was too much of a doormat for me to appreciate her character in any way. I still enjoyed the story and all secondary characters. Great start to the series.

      Between my obsession of UF, Paranormal and Dystopian books, I LOVE me some historical romances. Highlanders, smexy times and heaving bosoms are my perfect trifecta in a good romance.The Chief is the story of Tormod MacLeod. Chief of Clan MacLeod and Scotland's "Greatest Warrior of All". The story begins shortly after the death of William Wallace, prior to the crowning of Robert the Bruce as King of Scotland. Tor has remained neutral in the rising tensions between England and Scotland. His first [...]

      I don't really know what to say about this one. I guess I'm a little baffled because I didn't expect such a detailed history lesson, but basically that's what I feel I got from this book. Oh, and a detailed(ish) instructions about how to train a highlander special ops team, aka. the highlanders navy SEALs.Our hero, clan chief Tormod MacLeod does his best to stay neutral and to protect his clan from Scotland’s war against the English. You see he's an Islander and up until a few decades ago the [...]

      Big sexy highland warrior, and a sweet, determined heroine. What's not to like? Wanted to smack Tor upside the head a couple of times, but loved their romantic journey. Their story as well as the action, danger and mystery made this hard to put down. Already downloaded the next audio-book.

      Now this was a great story!!! And loosely based on actual historical figures but Monica McCarty put her own romantic spin on things and gave us a rich detailed story that I thoroughly enjoyed. I'm going through a bit of a Highland phase right now and this was perfect!

      Wow!!! This book is a pleasant surprise! I didn't expect to love it as much. I thought the story would be serious and full of historical facts. But it turns out to be a sexy, romantic read. I really like the writer's style of writing. She painted the picture vividly just by using the simplest terms and adjectives. I really love the way Christina was first introduced in the story; a young girl eating sweet plum while sneakily reading a love scene between Lancelot and Guinevere. I immediately take [...]

      12/12/15 * Update. I've been thinking of this books for the last week and decided to read it again. It's just as wonderful as I remembered. I loved it. My favorite of the series so far. I love the whole series. but this is by far my favorite. I have read it 4 times and will read it at least 3 more. And, that's saying alot since I don't normally re-read books. I highly recommend the whole series! They are all great books.

    26. Wendy on said:

      Wow, I'm grinning like a loon! Great writing, plot and characters, that made me feel like I was on the sideline watching the story unfold in front of my very eyes. Tor MacLeod, what a hero. *sigh*

      Dare I say this??? But this is perhaps one of the best highlander books EVER!!!!! Most of the characters are based on actual historial people!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!

      I really enjoyed this first-in-the-series. I'll definitely be checking out the others in the series.What I liked:- No messin', this hero is one hunky mass of gorgeous muscles, foul temper, bad attitude and general meanness. He is the Chief of his clan, driven by duty and absolutely focused on avoiding the politics surrounding the crown of the King of Scots. His day job is training others to be as hard and mean as he is. He is also a jerk, with the romantic instinct of a pelican and the social sk [...]

To do so, he chooses Tormod ‘Tor’ MacLeod who has no interest whatsoever in the war of these two countries. All he wants and considers is about his clan’s growth and piece.
