    One thought on “The Highlander's Choice”

    1. Who doesn't love a good man in a kilt?Another solid book by Callie Hutton. Easy read. Predictable but comfortable. I don't know why but I love the bitter mama turning into loving mama trope and this one delivered.

    2. Beautiful adventure between an English lady and a Scottish man! 5 starsI received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!I really enjoyed Callie Hutton's fifth story The Highlander's Choice, in her Marriage Mart Mayhem series. I liked her characters Sybil, Liam, Margaret and Duncan.Lady Sybil Lacey, a very English woman, is horrified that her best friend Margaret, is betrothed to a Scottish Laird. Since, she is invited to her wedding in Scotland, she decides to accompany her. But [...]

    3. There is so much to love about this book! The characters, the setting, the plot are all excellent! This could have been a novella, but the author takes the well laid out plan and takes the story through to a complete ending.Both lead characters have such strong preconceived ideas about what defines being ‘English’ and ‘Scottish’ that it was so fun to watch them realize just how wrong they are. Stereotypes exist today and we have all heard ones bandied about that never seem to make much s [...]

    4. 3.5*I love this series so much. Callie Hutton has such a way with historical romance, whether it be Regency or Western. Her words take you to that time and place and your totally wrapped up in the story. While this is not my favorite book in the series so far I did truly enjoy it. It's was a good story of not judging a book by its cover and getting to know the person for who they are not what they areScottish vs English. Sybil has grown up being told the barbarian ways of the Scots and Liam the [...]

    5. I received an ARC of this book for my honest opinion.Callie Hutton writes a great regency story about an English lady and a Scottish laird. Both have animosity and preconceived notions about the other. But they must get along for their friends mutual wedding. Throw in an angry mother and things escalate quickly. Can a love grow and survive in this climate?I really enjoy Ms. Hutton's regency series. It is not my usual genre but I couldn't put this story down. A job well done!

    6. I'd say 3.5 stars. It is a nice quick read and I enjoyed the story. The Scottish hero and English heroine both have preconceived notions about the other one's country. The attraction between them is strong enough to overcome all odds. I'm not sure if this book is truly a novella, but it is a nice read. I enjoyed it.

    7. I read this book prior to the release. Regency romance at its absolute best. Callie Hutton does it again and only gets better. I can't wait for the next book!

    8. Vikki’s MusingsThe Highlander’s Choice is not the first book I have read by Callie Hutton. I read A Baron’s Betrayal and enjoyed it a great deal. When I received a request from the publisher to read and review this book in exchange for an honest review, I agreed immediately. This is a lovely romance novel set in the beautiful highlands of Scotland.When Lady Sybil Lacey accompanies her friend to Scotland for her wedding to a Scottish laird, the last thing she expects or wants is to be attra [...]

    9. Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley.I've recently started reading Scottish Highlander-type romances. I can't really remember why I never wanted to read them before. I guess I just thought that English Regency romances were so wonderful, that there was no room for improvement. It's books like this one that has changed my mind about that and that have opened me up to trying even more new stuff!Sybil was a pretty decent hero. The Scottish and English really don't like each other ver [...]

    10. Something I learned from reading romance novels and history books is that the United Kingdom had a lot of internal political issues that spanned generations. Sybil is British to the core, and was secretly horrified when her best friend, Margaret, agreed to marry a Highlander. Sybil's family believes in love and, after four successful seasons, Sybil is still hoping she would find her one true love the same way her siblings have. It comes as a surprise to Sybil when she feels an instant (and inten [...]

    11. When prejudices you gave grown up with clash with your heart and the possibility of love, what do you do? You go for the love and learn that your prejudices were misplaced and you should not have generalized. Lady Sybil Lacey is the daughter and sister of the Duke of Manchester and is venturing into Scotland to attend the wedding of her best friend. She has been waiting for the “one” to come along and has been through four seasons waiting. Along comes this Scot, this very handsome, smart, an [...]

    12. Why I have not heard of Callie Hutton's work is beyond me! This author needs more exposure to all historical romance reader fanatics. 'The Highlander's Choice' is the fifth book in Hutton's 'Marriage Mart Mayhem' series, and the story revolves around Lady Sybil Lacey, an Englishwoman, and Laird Liam MacBride, a full-bred Scotsman. Both have their own reservations and opinion about the English and the Scots. Who could forget the historic battle of Culloden where many Scotsman lost their lives arm [...]

    13.

    14. Sybil and Liam face an uphill battle if their love for each other is going to survive and progress to a happy marriage. Both have to overcome their own prejudices about the other's heritage. They also have to contend with Liam's mother who has no liking for the English. The teasing and witty banter between Sybil and Liam was cute and funny. They disliked each other on sight but they also found themselves attracted to each other and their way of dealing with that was to spar with words. But inste [...]

    15. The Marriage Mart Mayhem series has been a hit or miss for me but Highlander's Choice was a Big Hit!!Lady Sybil Lacey has traveled to Scotland with her best friend Lady Margaret Somerville. Lady Margaret is marrying The McKinnon Laird Duncan. Over the two weeks before the wedding Lady Sybil begins to overcome her prejudice and dislike of the Scottish people and there ways. She learns through her gradual romance with Liam MacBride The Laird of the MacBride clan that all she has heard about Scotti [...]

    16. I received a copy of this story through NetGalley from Entangled Publishing for an honest review (thank you!). I don't read a lot of historical romance books, but when I do I prefer the highlander/Scottish genre. This was a great story told from Sylvia and Liam's perspectives. I have not read the previous books in the series (this is book 5) primarily centered around her siblings, but I had no trouble following along or feeling like I missed something. Both characters were strong and independent [...]

    17. Since I can not go to Scotland right now, on occasion I like to read a book that will take me there. The dialect also has to be part of it which this author does have. In this novel this author takes you along with Sybil who has went with her friend Margaret because she is to be married. Sybil though has a preconceived notion about men in Scotland that will change in the course of this novel. Her friend's intended has a guest that will do the changing of the mind and the heart. He though also ha [...]

    18. A quick, enjoyable read. I have a real soft spot for Scotland (and for Scottish men), so I was sold from the moment I read the blurb. I really loved Liam, and although it's set in a different era I couldn't help but picture Sam Heughan, aka Jamie Fraser from Outlander. I suspect that this was written with that particular fan base in mind. There's real chemistry between Sybil and Liam from the start, and the battle of wills between Sybil and her future mother-in-law made for interesting reading. [...]

    19. My favorite book by Callie Hutton to date. Lady Sybil is holding out for love but she won’t find it at her friend’s wedding—only those barbaric, whiskey-swilling Scots will be in attendance. Oh, but the sexy, strapping, tallness of a Scottish Highlander will win even the most pro-English lass out there.I started reading this on the beach over the holiday weekend and was instantly transported from the sand to the chill of the highlands. Great writing—you actually felt that you were in att [...]

    20. This is the fifth book in the "Marriage Mart Mayhem" series. I have not read the previous books, so for me this was a stand alone book. This book is about 200 pages also which for me made it the right size for a quick read. The heroine, Lady Sybil Lacey is a very English lady and is put off by Scottish Men, but her friend is marring one and Lady Sybil will be going with her friend to the wedding. There she meets our hero, Liam MacBride a Scottish laird of Bedlay Castle. Liam too is put of by Eng [...]

    21. They come from different worlds. A rush to judgment can lead to stimulating results. She's English, he's Scottish. No good could come of mixing the two. In Sybil's eyes all Scots are barbaric brutes that care for nothing more than themselves. So why is she so drawn to Liam? In Liam's eyes the English are superior snobby and opinionated individuals who want everything their way. So why does he let Sybil get under his skin? I adored this story. Liam and Sybil are so wrapped up in their preconceive [...]

    22. A beautiful historical romance love about an English lady and a Scott Laird. Story line is very good and well executed. All characters are well-developed and will keep readers interested. I couldn't put it down once I started reading. It is full of humour and romance between two very unlikely people. Sybil has very low opinion about Scottish "barbarians", she did not expect that she will like let alone love one of them. Things weren't so different for Liam either. He was brought up with hatred f [...]

    23. Liam and Sybil's story, a Scottish Highlander and an English Lady:Callie Hutton has done it again. This is another book in this wonderful series that made you laugh and love the characters in it.You could just picture the big Scotsman, Liam and his harsh, but understanding ways about him.Sybil an English Lady,was a strong willed woman that will make you love her caring feelings for all involved.Will the two different backgrounds come together or will they be torn apart by an angry Mum?I love thi [...]

    24. Set in 1815 Scotland. A page turner. One that will keep the reader turning pages, engaged and wondering what's next. The characters are realistic, engaging and flawed. Well written with vivid descriptions, and an intriguing storyline. I adored the H/H. Once again, Ms. Hutton has delivered an amazing story. A must read. An enjoyable and satisfying read!* Received for an honest review from the publisher *Rating: 4.5Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

    25. A great read. Both Liam and Sybil have preconceived ideas about Scots and Englishmen, but when these two meet they are soon to find out how wrong they are. Soon this English lass starts to develop feelings for the Scot and vice versa. Could they make it work? One bug hurdle in their way Liam's mother is NOT a fan of the English. With Liam's making life a nightmare how could they possibly make it work. I like how Sybil is so unexpected and not the norm. Liam is one yummy hero. Every time I read t [...]

    26. A wonderful story to get completely immersed in. Two very similar characters, stubborn and strong with powerful attraction and sarcasm aplenty throughout the book. As the story gains momentum so too does their desire for each other. Add to this twists and shocks in the story keep readers fixed to the pages. Sybil and Liam's interactions were often hilarious to start and heartfelt throughout. The Highlander's Choice by Callie Hutton was another delightful read in the Marriage Mart Mayhem series.4 [...]

    27. Very sweet and enjoyable read. Liam and Sybil were great together. My only disappointment was that Liam mother was not given three slaps. But I am a very bloodthirsty person, so there is that. She was a horrid woman who tried to drive away the love of his life. The fact Sybil even allowed his mother to get away with her rubbish, showed Sybil gentle strength, dignity and grace. I loved her for it. I would recommend to lovers of historical romance.

    28. I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a romance with a twist. Two people have to over come their differences to make things work. I loved that. I think this was very well done. It was a good read and if you want a good highland romance give this a shot.
