The Wolf of Kisimul Castle

What They're Saying...

5 Stars – Talking Books Blog: “This book series from the very first story, has been truly rapturous and exhilarating to read, and The Wolf Of Kisimul Castle by Heather McCollum has the outstanding series continuing. Focussing on Mairi and Alec’s characters, the story has action, cheekiness, romance and scorching moments that manage to ensnare readers attentions and hold them captive to the dialogue in the story. A complete draw-card of a read. The Wolf Of Kisimul Castle is the third instalment in the Highland Isles series – a series not to miss.”

So, I’ll just be here…waiting to be carried away by a rugged highlander.

I just loved this book! The writing captured me right away. Heather McCollum’s The Wolf of Kisimul Castle, Mairi Maclean is about to be wed when a highlander comes into her room and spirits her away to his cursed fortress. But Mairi is no shrinking violet, and if Alec MacNeil thinks she’ll just show up at the church like an obedient bride, he’s got another think coming.

“Ye free dogs, but bind women?” she asked, inhaling deep draughts of air.
“Aye on th dogs. Not usually on the women.”

Let me start by saying these characters popped right off the page. Mairi’s widowed early and she’s been through hell. But she’s such a strong character—not only in mind, but in spirit. She kept surprising me by things she’d do or say. Willing, obedient captive, she is not. And yet, there’s something about the clan chief, Alec MacNeil, that just makes her stop and take notice.

Gosh, the things this girl does! It was an uproarious journey and battle that slowly develops into something extra. I didn’t want to stop reading.

Then there’s Alec MacNeil himself. Total swoon material. He tries so hard to be this “captor,” he truly does. Alec’s a single dad and after the murder of his wife, he’s in the market for a new one. That, and no woman dares step foot into the fortress everyone considers cursed. But he’s got Mairi now. He just needs to find a way to keep her…

There was so much humor and wit packed into this delightful novel. I was so invested. I think my favorite side characters, too, have to be Alec’s children. Be prepared to be charmed and to lose a little bit of your heart to them. There’s also another part of the plot that opens up too, and nothing was taking me away from this story.

I’m going to go back and read the rest of the Highland Isles series because I’m addicted. A new go-to author for me for a sweet and sexy highland romance.

“I loved this book, it really made me laugh.
The children are really funny along with a strong heroine and a surly hero whose friends make constant jibes at. 
Very entertaining.”
