    One thought on “Highlander in her Bed”

    1. This was a fun, light, romantic fluff piece with some steamy, sensual scenes. It is not a story to be taken seriously as there are some real big holes in the story. Mainly, the hero/heroine fall madly in love without ever having a lick of meaningful dialog between them. They simply lust after each other, have sex, and fall in love. Plus a lot of "mystical" stuff goes unexplained. But the story is meant to be fun and sexy, which it is. If you can deal with that you may well enjoy it. However, if [...]

    2. Wow, the ratings on this book are pretty much all 1 and 2 stars. Wish I'd checked before I read it.My reason for the low rating was that Mara was an idiot. I liked Alex, but he basically cursed himself to haunt his bridal bed for 700 years because the MacDougalls betrayed him and killed his men. His bride set it all up. Then Colin MacDougall (the one who kills him) takes his bride and the bed. Then he screws up Alex's reputation and history has him down as a rat and an all around bad guy. So I'm [...]

    3. Loved it! And I was shocked that it received so many bad reviews! It was light, fun, cheesy, sappy, and dirty romance! With kilts! I mean, come on, what is better than an angsty Scot in a kilt?? An angsty dead Scot in a kilt! Maybe more: an angsty, lusty, dead Scot in a kilt guarding his bed!!Come on people, you don't pick up a book like this and expect Les Miserables, you pick up a book like this and expect something like Devil in a Kilt.I'm going to go into that corner over there and giggle so [...]

    4. Loved the premise: Unlucky in love girl with a thing for history finds herself haunted by a cranky, yet very sexy, Highland ghost. Unfortunately, this book just didn't click for me. Don't get me wrong, Ms. Mackay's love for the subject is clear. She is able to evoke the beauty and mystery that is Scotland with highly immersive detail.Why I gave this book two stars:•I just couldn't connect with the characters. This chick inherits a Scottish castle--one in great shape and with a fantastic staff- [...]

    5. This is my first by this author and the story had a unique twist I haven't crossed before.I liked most stuff but more often than not I seem to be more confused than engrossed. - The prologue was sad and and tore at my heart, but there was a part I felt that it was weird, somewhere during the conversations they seemed more interested in the bed than anything else, I found it weird and an awkward conv to have before a person dies.- The unique twist I mentioned before wasn't the ghost aspect I cros [...]

    6. It's a good paranormal romance book, most of these reviews are ridiculous. You can not expect life altering from a little romance book and if you do then you should switch genres.

    7. Spectacular and imaginative! You won't be able to put this one down! Another beautifully written breath taking, knock your socks or kilt off magical read! Loved it.This is the second time for me reading this spectacular Scottish paranormal romance in "Highlander in Her Bed" by the multi talented Allie MacKay. Which is book one of "The "Ravenscraig Legacy Series". You can read this outstanding book alone or in series order. It was even better the second time around as I absolutely love love loved [...]

    8. A self employed tour guide in London, Mara McDougal comes upon a beautiful antique bed that she absolutely has to have. Mara doesn't believe in ghosts and when she goes to Scotland to claim her late aunts castle, there is a very hot and handsome visitor that comes to her. Sir Alexander Douglas has hated the McDougal name for centuries. So seeing his bed being lied in by a McDougal, burns him to the quick. He is determined to scare the little wench away and out of his bed. This is a wonderful and [...]

    9. I have to say that half the time I had no idea what Mara was talking about and it seemed like things jumped out at you abruptly. It also seemed rather unlikely that this “ghost” and this woman would fall in love the moment they met considering Alex already knew she was a MacDougall and hates her clan with a passion.Some of his ghostly haunts were fun. Though this strong confident man seemed to turn weak the moment he decided to “love” Mara.Then there are the “extra” characters. They [...]

    10. I admit. Highlander romances are sure to get me going. This one was no exception. Combine it with a ghost and I'm sold. There was not much that annoyed me reading this novel, but one thing was that I found the writing a bit simplistic. It did however not take that much away from the enjoyment. And then there was the way the Scottish burr got annoying. I like the burr, but it was a bit over the top. Other than that the story was really good and the characters were really likable. I will certainly [...]

    11. Putting this on the "read" shelf is not quite true. I did not even finish it.I picked this book up because of its title. I read all Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" and enjoy the stories set in Scotland and the chivalry and honor thing. This book was basically a porno. There was no character development, nothing other than the two main characters lusting after each other. It got really old. I love me a chick book, but I like to know more about the characters other than their "measurements".

    12. 3.5 to 4 stars This book has very mixed reviews but i personally liked it very much it is fun sexy lighthearted a different take on the highlander theme.Nothing overly dramatic or too deep If you want a fun sexy read this could be for you. My first book by this author and i will definitely read the next one in this series i loved her characters and hope some of the side characters in this one are in future books in the series.

    13. I've had some crap luck with books lately. This is another one. I could care less about either one of these main characters. There were no supporting characters to speak of. I just didn't care what happened to them. Alex was an ass and Mara was an idiot ("History books don't lie!") Blech. This one's going right back in the bag for the used book store. Next.

    14. Allie Mackay always writes great highland romance novels! Mara and Alex have great chemistry starting where they butt heads down to the hot steamy scenes that are so good, you may look up airline tickets to fly to Scotland just to find a highlander of your own

    15. 2.5 stars. A bit uneven. Some cute stuff, some over the top fluff, but also some stuff that really annoyed me.

    16. Highlander in Her Bed (The Ravenscraig Legacy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)Awesome, utterly romantic, touching story! The story, the author, and the narrator all deserve five stars. I listened mesmerize to the entire audio in one sitting. David Monteath is an amazing storyteller who brought the characters to life with his amazing narration. Amazing, must experience, audio book!

    18. Alex excepcional durante 700 años dando alegríasNo es un viaje, es un fantasma pero a mi me ha gustado ;-)

    19. This is a nice book. Although there were some things in this book that I did not like, I still think it was a pretty nice book.This was my first book by Allie Mackay, Highlander In Her Bed is a nice book and I hope her other book will be even better.I liked Mara and how she deals with all the shit life has given her, how she reacts to being stalked by a vengeful spirit. But I am not sure how I feel about Alexander. I know that he was deceived by a MacDougall, and because of that treachery he los [...]

    20. I saw this book and thought "why not give it a try?" I mean, I love Highlanders, so a ghostly one should be fun, right? Well, it could have been. Sadly this book just didn't do enough with it. The potential was there, but it wasn't really utilized.Alex Douglas is a knight who was killed by a clan that he was supposed to be marrying into. But his bride-to-be's cousin Colin MacDougall sets up a trap to kill him and his men, frames them to ruin his reputation and even steals the very bed he carved [...]

    21. 4 1/2 stars!West Highlands, near Oban, 1312Sir Alexander Douglas is on his way to claim his bride when he and his men are set upon by MacDougalls. His intended has betrayed him, he and his men are dying and with his last breath he curses the carved four poster bed he had made for his new bride."You will rue the hour you e'er laid eyes on my bed. I shall haunt you and your issue until the end of all days, that I swear." His curse on the MacDougalls etched onto eternity.Present day, London and the [...]

    22. Tour guide Mara MacDougall stops at a London antique shop-and spots perhaps the handsomest bed ever. Then she bumps into the handsomest man ever. Soon Mara can't forget the irresistible-if haughty-Highlander. Not even when she learns that she's inherited a Scottish castle.Spectral Sir Alexander Douglas has hated the Clan MacDougall since he was a medieval knight and they tricked him into a curse-the curse of forever haunting the bed (the very one that Mara now owns) that was once intended for hi [...]

    23. This is a trashy romance novel. I've read trashy romance novels before, even medieval-era stories of knights and damsels in distress, and while they're formulaic they at least usually have some kind of plot and character development to go along with the naughty bits. Sadly, this book was about 88% naughty bits and 12% ridiculous plot, the kind in which I just kept yelling at the main character for her stupid behavior. So a modern woman buys a 14th-century handmade bedat's haunted a medieval Scot [...]

    24. Campy romance about a highland knight cursed to haunt a bed and the modern descendent, Mara- of the one who killed and cursed him. Pure fantasy and fun.

    25. Mara MacDougall udah kesengsem banget sama tempat tidur yang keliatannya kunooooo banget dan kemungkinan besar ada dari jamannya scotland para highlander. dan dia selalu dibisiki suara bariton, rendah nan seksi seorang lelaki. dan akhirnya dia ketemu Alex. alex ini ternyata nyimpen dendam sama macdougal dan mengutuk keluarga itu selama-lamanya. dan alex ini ngejaga banget tempat tidur yang ternyata miliknya itu. menolak mentah-mentah kalo ada yang nempatin apalagi seorang macdougal.otw,btw, mara [...]

    26. A pleasant change from the standard romance fairThis is a sultry little book, with an American woman for a heroine, and a Highland laddie long since gone as the hero. While I personally think this is a bit unbelievable, it does make a good story, and the author put obvious effort into making it believable - in part by making some of the characters refuse to believe in ghosts.A bed of contention between the lady and the lad is an antique bed, which he was transporting to the castle the king had g [...]

    27. I was actually looking for Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband, but couldn’t remember the title and bought this one instead. This was a mess. One of the biggest problems comes from the hero, Alexander, being a ghost. It didn’t appear as though the author thought up any rules for her universe. One second, a ghost can decide whether to be corporeal and choose his location. Then, the next second, he has no control over being transparent or being whisked away by some unknown power to some unkn [...]

    30. This was a most amusing and enjoyable story about Sir Alex, a Highlander ghost from way-back-when who is doomed to protect the bed he had intended to gift to his betrothed all those many 100's of years ago and Mara, a young lady and modern day tour guide who inherits a Scottish castle.Of course they get together, did you doubt that? But it's how they get together and all the bits in-between that makes this such a clever and entertaining story, well worth the read.You will also meet Hardwick, a c [...]
