    One thought on “Highlander's Hope

    1. Lady Wesley

      I'd give this debut author a 3.5 for writing a good, but not great, book. There is romance, adventure, angst, and humor, and the plot moves along briskly from London to the Scottish Highlands. The characterization is quite good, and the author did a very nice job with a variety of secondary characters, especially the odious Mrs. Pettigrove. I liked the hero and heroine and found them to be engaging and fairly believable.But -- here is what kept this from being a four-star book for me: the accent [...]

    2. Carol *Young at Heart Oldie*

      This was Collette Cameron’s debut novel and the first book in her Castle Brides series. I enjoyed it immensely.I loved Ewan’s playful nature and wit but also how strong, protective, caring and loyal he is. It was also refreshing to see him in love with a reluctant Yvette rather than the more common scenario of the heroine hopelessly in love with the hero. I understood why his fear of losing Yvette compels him to conceal the truth about their marriage and I felt he genuinely thinks he is doin [...]

    3. Karen Lopp

      Highlander's Hope delivers a HEA love story with the intrigue of spies and danger added in. Yvette is on the run from a dangerous suitor. Ewan is determined to keep her safe and ferret out the traitor that threatens the war office. I enjoyed the chemistry between Yvette and Ewan and the added suspense of peril. Overall it was an enjoyable and satisfying read.

    4. Sue

      I really enjoyed this eARC provided to me by the author. I felt it was hard to put down as well. One really comes to enjoy these characters and wants the best for them. We want a happy resolution to all matters. I too would not have thought of this as a typical "Highlander" novel as mentioned in the other review. It does meet the definition I believe with the traditions and loyalty of described actions as well as Ewan's family. It truly is London meets American meets Scottish type flavoring.I wa [...]

      Spies, traitors, attempted murder and abduction, heiress in peril, handsome Scottish hero and a secret marriage all rolled up into one wild Regency Romance adventure. Sign me up! I eagerly dove into this story with anticipation.Yvette escapes Boston just ahead of her greedy, crazed step-brother who will do anything to get his hands on her fortune. However, London proves to be no safer as she is again pursued and this time by strangers. The man from her dreams- and yes, I mean literally- arrives [...]

    6. Maggie Lynch

      This book surprised me on several levels. Though it takes an approach that appears typical for many historical romances these days—Scottish Hero, Regency Historical, and Virgin Heroine. However, nothing is completely as it seems. This very independent heroine is escaping a determined and violent suitor, and she has had persistent and sensual dreams of the hero for years. Both of these elements play into a nice mystery plot for the reader to unravel. Bravo to author Collette Cameron for carryin [...]

      I really enjoyed this book! It had mystery, political intrigue, humor, and best of all a sweet love story with characters I liked very much.Miss Yvette Stapleton is on the run from her step-brother Edgar, who will stop at nothing, including murder, to get her inheritance now that her father is dead. Forced to travel in secret and alone, she leaves Boston and returns to England. As if constantly looking over her shoulder isn't bad enough, she has a thoroughly irritating and gaseous bunkmate who I [...]

      Oh. My. Gosh. I loved this story! Highlander’s Hope is an engaging read that I couldn’t put down! This Regency romance is full of action and smoldering romance.I was hooked from the beginning of the story as Miss Yvette Stapleton is sailing to London from Massachusetts. She is being chased by her step-brother, Edgar Marquardt, whom she suspects is responsible for the death of her father and step-mother. Edgar is desperate to get his hands on Yvette’s fortune. Once in London she is still no [...]

    9. Meggan Connors

      Though Collette Cameron's debut novel, Highlander's Hope, references highlanders in the title, it truly is a Regency mystery, and it's all the better for it. Attempted murder, spies, traitors, a beautiful and vulnerable heroine, and a handsome Scottish hero, all set against the backdrop of the Regency era, this story is a fun adventure mystery romance. The heroine, Yvette, escapes Boston and her step-brother, who wants nothing more than to get his hands on her fortune. When Yvette is once again [...]

      *chuckle* What a fun ride!Evvy is a sweet character full of spunk. It is fun to read the story from her POV. She has heart and hope and is delightfully opinionated. She is rescued on occasion, but she’s not just a hopeless heiress in pretty dresses! She wields a knife with deadly precision!Ewan is intelligent and quick. Having half the story from his POV really takes everything to another deeper level. He is hot, which is important, coming from a handsome family (I love why's!) His character i [...]

      Regency romance full of mystery and intrigue! 5 starsI just finished reading Highlander's Hope written by Collette Cameron.Ms. Cameron's debut novel, Highlander's Hope, is truly is a Regency mystery, rather than a Scottish romance. The author skillfully blended a world of scandal, treason, intrigue and mystery. She also weaved her characters Laird Ewan McTavish and Heiress, Yvette Stapleton into a charming romance. I enjoyed the chemistry between Yvette and Ewan! Sparks flare the moment they met [...]

    12. Tracy Emro

      Ewan was pretty close to perfect and I loved him. Yvette, not so much. I don't know precisely what I didn't like - I just know I didn't really think she deserved Ewan. And I find it more that just a little hard to believe that a twenty year old unmarried woman in 1817 had no guardian and was able to do whatever she wanted with her money. I did like the story and enjoyed seeing familiar characters from the first book. I think the action moved along at a good pace and nothing was completely over t [...]

      If this book is a good indication, this author has a brite future ahead of her! I fell in love with both her hero and heroine. They were both so totally likeable and so well matched. The story line was well developed with just enough adventure and romance to keep you turning the next page. There are a few other characters introduced that I am sure will inspire future stories of their own. I can't wait to read about their adventures! A sweet romance that inspires and epitomizes the best kind of l [...]

    16. Violetta Rand

      Collette Cameron's debut novel, Highlander's Hope, gifts the reader with mystery and love. There's nothing better than an evil step brother mixed up with corrupt government spies and Transatlantic intrigue. The vibrant protagonists, Yvette and Ewan, have some obstacles to overcome before they find (and admit) love. Stylistically, Ms. Cameron writes with clarity and an innocence I enjoy in certain stories. It worked very well in Highlander's Hope. I look forward to more!

    17. Fiola Faelan

      Collette grabs the reader from the first page, and it just gets better and better from there! A sexy Highlander, a sassy, vulnerable but strong, beautiful woman, intrigue, sensual romance, and twists and turns will make you unable to put this book down. I'll be looking forward to each everyone one of Collette's books! Very well done!

    18. Ella Quinn

      Yvette and Ewen will capture your heart. Originally only interested in Yvette because of a traitor, Ewen quickly finds himself falling in love with the independent Yvette. Miss Cameron weaves a wonderful tale that stretches from London to Scotland.

    19. Yvonne Griffin

      My Favorite Collette Cameron So FarLoved it. Loved it. Loved it. I finished this in one sitting, and for me that is the hallmark of a good book. Ms. Cameron is my new favorite romance author. Highly recommended.

Yes, this is an honest review.The characters:Yvette and Ewan are very interesting characters: Yvette is a heiress with special skills in weapons and fluency in five languages.

      There's a lot going on in Highlander's Hope and for the most part Ms. Cameron keeps tight control over the action to create a satisfying story overall. From the controlled high society of Regency England, to the high seas, to the wildness of Scotland our protagonists set out on a journey full of danger, suspense, and surprising humor on their way to their HEA. This journey is vividly depicted which makes it easy to fully immerse yourself into this intriguing world Ms. Cameron has created and has [...]

      I'm adding to my review that this is really a regency mystery romance. I believe the author references the name Highlander because the Hero is Scottish.Loved this book! Was captivating right from the get go. The tension that builds during the mystery and intrigue made the romance that was budding, wonderful and I fell in love with them immediately.Hunky, tall, dark, and handsome Scottish Aristocrat!

      I'm reading this (and the second book Viscount's Vow) because I'm reviewing The Earl's Enticement (book 3) for a blog, however, I'm reluctant to bother with book two after this rather staid and lackluster romance. The not so good:1. The hero and heroine are just not very interesting; there isn't enough "screen presence." I was never sure whether Yvette was a strong woman or not because sometimes she'd be brave and stick up for herself and other times she would act helpless. And Ewan isn't a hero [...]

      Another great storyI really have been enjoying this series by Colette Cameron. She's a great writer and this story is fabulous. Yvette was just the right amount of stubborn and Ewan is a dream! Once he knew what he wanted he set out to get it!

    30. Ceri

      This is a rollicking adventure, set in the early 1800s, and we are immediately in the thick of the action; Yvette is an heiress, her father and stepmother recently dying in very suspicious circumstances, and her stepbrother Edgar has made an attack on her. She has fled from Boston, where her family had been living for the past few years, back to her hometown of London. There she is pursued at the docks and finds herself saved by Ewan, the very man she's been having some rather saucy dreams about [...]
