    2. I've given this a C- at AAR, so that's 2.5 stars rounded up.One of my friends commented on an update I made while reading this book and asked me: “Why do you carry on doing Scottish books to yourself?” I responded to the effect that, in my eternal optimism, I pick up a Scottish-set historical every so often in the hope that I’ll find a good one with a plotline that isn’t a repeat of 97% of the other books in the genre. While I’ll admit that Highland Flame doesn’t offer the standard [...]

    3. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceHighland Flame is a story that I have been highly anticipating for quite some time. Ever since I read book three of the series "Highland Hellion" and we saw the courage and strength of this one man, Diocail. I just knew that his book would be great and you know what it WAS!! This book worked for me in so many ways probably even more so than the previous two books. I don't think that I could pin point one certain aspect that just made this b [...]

    4. Delightfully exciting read with one of the strongest heroines I’ve read in a while. The hero is just as strong as the heroine and both are too stubborn for their own good.Diocail Gordon has just become Laird of the Gordon clan. His uncle, the last Laird was a selfish, miserly man who grossly mistreated his clan and his home. Diocail plans to change all of that, but there are a few in his clan who do not welcome his leadership. His uncle had let the keep fall into such disrepair that the roof, [...]

    5. I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Read 4 Stars. I began reading the Highland Weddings series starting with book #3, having no issue jumping right into the story. New readers shouldn't have any confusion reading Highland Flame as a standalone. With that being said, I did promptly go purchase books 1 & 2 and will read them in my free-time. Mary Wine created a mixture of fast-paced storytelling with a guilty pleasure vibe, with a healthy dose of angst. Jane is newly [...]

    6. Romance the Highland way!Jane Stanley's husband had been a feckless excuse for a man who sought to sell her favors to pay his gambling debts. When she refused and he was killed she found herself newly widowed and in the depths of the Highlands. After she refused the inn's owner the same liberties she found herself thrust from the Scottish inn wearing only her chemise.Which is how Laird Diocail Gordon and his men found her some days later, trudging barefooted and determined towards England--sort [...]

    7. Highland Flame is the fourth book in the Highland Weddings series by Mary Wine. It can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.Laird Diocail Gordon has recently taken on his title, clan and castle after his uncle's death. He is shocked to discover the state of the castle and realises what a harsh miserly man his uncle was. He sets about making changes for the better, but without the help of a good woman to take charge of things he's struggling. He's a warrior, not a house-keeper.Jane Stafford is r [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this book - Mary Wine is such a great author, she is able to draw me in from the first page and hold me captive until the last.The story opens with Jane being cast out of the inn she was staying in with her husband in just her shift. Her husband was killed and the innkeeper took all her possessions as payment due, he cast her out when she refused to sleep with him to cancel the debt. She is determined to return to her father's house in England, so she sets out walking, but unbek [...]

    9. I have enjoyed this series so far and when we met Diocail in the previous book I was curious to know more. The Gordons have caused a LOT of troubles in previous books. But Diocail is new to the lairdship and he will hopefully bring some order to the land. But the keep is in ruins and no one is doing anything to fix it. Good for them that he is persistent. Jane had a crappy marriage and is now on her own and trying to get back to England. She had courage and would not back down. A spine of steel. [...]

    10. Some of you may have followed my reviews for the previous books in this series by Mary Wine on the other blog. If you don't know, I'm totally in love with this series. It's my first highlander series and Mary Wine has done nothing but impress me with the way she weaves together romance and politics. I'm always eager to read the next book in the series, so I jumped on Highland Flame with a lot of excitement. Right away though I could tell that Highland Flame wouldn't be as good for me as the prev [...]

    11. I love historical romance, and highland stories always have a special place in my heart, probably because the rough terrain and climate and the hardships of the time usually make for strong willed characters and interesting plots. In that sense, Highland Flame is no exception.In my opinion, however, there were a few holes in the plot, and they are the reason Highland Flame gets four stars instead of five. First, the writing is a bit repetitive in places and there's too much going back and forth [...]

    12. Highland Flame by Mary Wine is another fabulous Highland Romance. #4 in her exciting "Highland Weddings" series, but it can be read as a stand alone.Laird Diocail Gordon just inherited uncle's run down castle and the rag-tag Gordon clan. He is anot impressive warrior but, can he prove himself capable of being a good laird, not just a good warrior, and will he be able help his clan prosper and re-build.

    14. 'Highland Flame' by Mary Wine is Book Four in The 'Highland Weddings' series. This is the story of Laird Diocail Gordon and Jane Stafford. I have read the other books in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book.Jane was forced into marriage someone how gambled and drank away everything they had. He was beaten to death for cheating someone and she was glad he was gone. One of the men that he owed money to tried to make her into his 'whore' but she would rather die walking from the Hi [...]

    15. Laird Diocail had just inherited his uncle's run-down clan. Lady Jane a widow, who had just been turned out without anything, but her pride. All went to pay her husband's debts. These two proud people will travel straight toward each other and a flame, a spark between them is immediate. Surely a lasting love will follow.

    16. Review copy courtesy of the publisher via .Oh I loved this book! I think I read the first book in this series, Highland Spitfire, probably over a year ago and I loved that one too. I haven't read Books 2 and 3 but when I saw that this was part of the same series, I knew I'd have to try it. And I was NOT disappointed!OMG! The heroine, Jane, was ahhhh-mazing! She's a widow but she's not super upset about that. Her late husband sounded like a real prick. Jane was a fourth daughter and her father ch [...]

    17. Highlander Flame ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ written by Mary Wine(Highland Wedding #4)Laird Diocail Gordon inherited this title from his dead uncle Colum through his mother. Diocail had not lived his life at the Gordon Clan. Many in the clan resented him as laird and he had to work to prove himself. Colum the former laird was a bitter miser of a man and did not provided adequate substance for his clan. Diocail despised the way he saw the clan had been treated and vowed to improve conditions for all [...]

    18. I LOVED this book!  Mary Wine has brought her A game with her Highland Weddings series!  All feature strong alpha males and equally strong females!  This story grabbed me from the start and I couldn't stop reading!!Jane has been thrown out of the inn where she was staying with her husband.  Only her husband was killed over his gambling debts, and the innkeeper took their stuff as settlement of payment.  He threw her out when she refused to work off the remaining debt on her back!  She need [...]

    19. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley and the publishers.This book was very much my kind of book. I've been wanting to read more about Highlanders before the Jacobite rebellion because there are more kilts to enjoy and there's a certain ruggedness about that time which draws me in and this was just what I had in mind.This is the story about a Scotsman named Diocail Gordon who becomes Laird, inheriting a rather rundown castle and a mixed bag of servants as well as c [...]

    21. Another great Scottish romance by Mary Wine! I love her style of writing which is very descriptive and provides clear visual images of the characters, castle-life, and the beauty of the Scottish countryside. She manages to weave together historical facts with romance, resulting in exciting adventures! Highland Flame is no exception.We first met Diocail Gordon in Highland Hellion as he challenged and ultimately inherited the lairdship from his uncle, Colum Gordon. Lady Jane Stanley is a newly int [...]

    22. This is a charming, thoroughly researched, character driven romance set in the Scottish Highlands. If you read it as a stand alone (which it absolutely can be read as) you will hopefully find it as charming as I did: A cool under pressure Laird whose house and clan are in disarray. A heroine in distress who somewhat implausibly wanders straight into the hero's clan while they our out collecting rents. She wants to be useful. He wants a wife to put his house in order. Their relationship isn't nec [...]

    23. Diocail Gordon is now Laird of clan Gordon, but he's inherited a rundown castle in desperate need of repairs. His miserly uncle starved his people and Diocail is determined to set everything right. On his tour of his tenants he finds Lady Jane Stanley, stranded, barefoot and only clad in her shift. His honor does not allow him to leave her on her own. Thus begins the back and forth of their arguing and Jane's determination to return to her father's home now that she's recently widowed. However, [...]

    24. Lady Jane Stanley's husband is murdered outside an inn in the highlands of Scotland. Because he owes the innkeeper money she is stripped of everything she owns, including most of her clothing but she sets off to find her way back to her home in England. In the meantime she runs into the new Laird of the Gordon clan and his men, who are out collecting rents from their tenants. Half starved and freezing they take her in and she eventually, through no fault of his or hers, finds herself married to [...]

    25. I like the way this book was written. It was not too much that is was over powering, but it has this sense that there is a certain theme into it. It did not dwell too much with the way the sexual tension was building, but more on the trust one person must give to each other. Jane is English, and Diocail is a Scottish Highlander. And yet, some of his clansmen do not care where she came from. In every book Mary Wine wrote, you can see how each individual is given a situation where it seems uncomfo [...]

    26. Yes just so much YES! Diocail and Jane are phenomenal and their banter is both humorous and adorable. Their give and take and fight for control was once of the most believable relationships I have seen in a while. The story flowed at the perfect pace and was full of enough twists to make it one addicting read. I did like that depth was given not just to the primary characters but to the supporting cast who will be featured in the next installment (that I am putting on every notification availabl [...]

    27. Bhaic and Ailis (Spitfire), Helen and Marcus (Vixen), Rolfe and Katherine (Hellion), and now Diocail and Jane (Flame)--- I LOVE all of these characters!In this particular book, Diocail's captains and confidants were a lot of fun.For a highland historical romance series, I have to say, this is one of my top favorites :)I really hope there will be more in this series, but the way it ended, it seems it could go either way.I will probably be re reading this series in the future because they are very [...]

    28. The heroine was a spit-fire English lass who kept the hero and his men on his toes. Since I didn't receive an ARC, I don't have time to write a detailed review. Just know I enjoyed it and look forward to the next in the series.Title: Highland Flame, Author: Mary Wine, no cheating, no love triangle, no OW/OM drama, feisty/sassy/widow heroine, good guy Laird hero, some violence, scoundrel/loser deceased husband, eventually some very smexy/steamy scenes.(These comments are based on a library editio [...]

    29. Highland FlameThere is another wonderful story by Mary Wine. It's about learning to trust each other but finding it hard because of past experiences. I enjoyed reading this book but hated that I finished reading it because I didn't want it to end. I can't wait until Mary Wine next book comes out. I hope it is about Brenda and Bothan. I would love to read about Brenda. I hope you will enjoy reading this book as much as I did.

    30. Another well done book by Mary WineGreat romantic story. Love Diocail all and Jane's characters. Diocail is a true highlander fierce and loyal. Jane maybe English, but she is tough. Supporting characters are humorous. Great plot. Would like to have books with Symons and Brenda story.
