Product Description


"This fast-paced addition to the Murray clan chronicles is loaded with action as two people with demons help each other slay them. The strong prose and well-drawn backdrop, along with recurring characters adds just the right touches to more than satisfy Howell's legion of fans." ---RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

Book 18 of the " Murray Family Series " Arianna, with a ship bearing down on the ship they're on, throws empty kegs into the water as she throws Michel, Adelar and herself into the water to hang on to the floating kegs. The 2 brothers French parents have been killed and Arianna is taking them to her family, the Murrays. Brian MacFingal, on his way to get the cargo coming in on the ship that has sunk, finds some cargo and a few living crew members as well as Arianna, Michel, and Adelar. Brian decides to split up into 3 groups and go different ways to Scarglas so that the men who are pursuing the boys are confused on which direction they have headed. I liked getting caught up again with Jolene and Sigimor Cameron. I love Sigimor. And I love all the MacFingal boys. The battle of the French with the Murrays, MacFingals, and the Camerons, all making sure those young boys were safe as well as the traveling was all done very well. Great storyline and characters. So nice to meet Cullum all grown up now - Book 7 Highland Angel. The only confusion I had was - How many Brian MacFingals were there?? There was a Brian MacFingal that ran away with Gregor 's faux fiance ( Mavis ) and married her in Book 12 Highland Lover. Then again it is the MacFingal clan - so there could be 2 brothers called Brian.

HASH(0x9ea9900c) out of 5 stars Major faux pas! Did the author forget her previous plotline??? Sept. 22 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the first review I've written on Amazon--I just couldn't believe the author made such a major mistake and none of her editors or proofreaders caught it! At the end of "Highland Lover" she had Gregory and Ewan's brother Brian MacFingal elope with and marry Mavis Kerr. She had a rich dowry and he was a poor younger son so he pursued her boldly. Mavis had wanted to marry Gregory, but he loved Alana Murray instead. Later in "Highland Avenger", Brian (who'd remained single???) became the main character who fell in love with Arianna Murray but tried to give her up because he didn't want to marry for a rich dowry. Even his basic character changed! I've read almost everything Hannah Howell has written over the years and I've thoroughly enjoyed her books. They're imaginative, funny, and full of adventure and romance. Unfortunately, some of her later books lack chemistry, like this one. That's one of the reasons I gave it a low score. Sorry, Hannah!

HASH(0x9ea99f78) out of 5 stars How far the reach April 3 2012
By Kathleen M. Jund - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
An exciting romance set during 1480 Scottish times in which Brian MacFingal one of the younger sons in the large brood of the notorious MacFingal finds more than he bargains for when searching the beach for his lost cargo that is washing ashore. Upon finding the ship's captain along with some of the crew shipwrecked, their story of a forced sinking in the high seas leaves him wondering why. A discovery within the rocky shoreline by Brian's younger brother leads to two young boys and protecting the body of one beautiful young woman. Fearing the beauty is dead; Brian rushes to her side finding proof that although battered, Lady Arianna Murray Lucette is quite alive. The tale she tells sets Brian on a heroic mission to protect the trio and deliver them to safety before pursuers close at their heels, intent on their death, make an appearance. A trail of false leads through the cross-country forests and fields of Scotland challenge all of Brian's instincts to keep the enemy away, but will his instincts prove strong enough where Lady Arianna is concerned? While carrying her many scars of the past can Lady Arianna trust this handsome avenger with both her life and her heart?

HIGHLAND AVENGER by Hannah Howell is another interesting historical romance set in 1480 Scotland. When Sir Brian MacFingal,finds Arianna Murray Lucette he has no idea the trouble she will bring to him and his clan. While, they race across Scotland to get to his clan's castle, they not only encounter danger,but must fight they growing passions. Arianna is on the run with her two charges from the men who want them dead.They has traveled from France,the ship they where on destroyed and sunk. They washed up on the Scotland shore where Sir Brian finds them. He and his small clan will do anything to save them,especially the beautiful Arianna. Ms. Howell has done it again,with this fast paced,action packed story full of danger,and sizzling passion between the sexy highland hero and the meek Arianna.The men from France can not hold a candle to the Scottish warrior. Ms. Howell is another great storyteller who draws her readers into the story with her characters.Received for an honest review from the publisher.

HASH(0x9ebc9bdc) out of 5 stars strong Highlander romance March 27 2012
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1480 off the coast of Scotland, a large ship plows into a smaller vessel. Arianna Lucette knows her vicious brother-in-law Amiel, who she believes murdered his sibling Claud and Claud's legal wife Marie Anne, and the vicious DeVeaux clan seek her two stepsons (Adelar and Michel). She and the boys use barrels to make it ashore.

Smuggler Brian MacFingal and his brothers were waiting for Captain Tillet to deliver cargo. They rescue the captain and four others and find the lads protecting Arianna. She tells him she is a Murray trying to take her husband's children to safety while an evil army comes for them. Brian directs his brothers to separately take the lads to their keep Scarglas while he escorts Arianna in order to split the adversaries into three groups. Arianna tells Brian that her husband was a bigamist as he was already married before he wed her. She cannot explain why the DeVeaux are involved. He admires her loyalty and love for someone else's children. As the enemy pursues them, they fall in love, but she was burned once and apparently abandoned by her clan so is wary of relationships.

The latest Murray Highlander romance (see Highlander Protector) is a strong entry starring two fully developed protagonists with the female lead an interesting heroine. The story line is fast-paced and filled with suspense as the enemy is like the Energizer bunny. Although some of the hero's actions are inane for an intelligent leader like their stopping for a tryst or his rejecting a scout while in peril from adversaries hunting them down, fans will appreciate the return of Arianna Murray from her horrible French "marriage".

HASH(0x9ea782d0) out of 5 stars Even the sex is boring. Dec 4 2014
By Tabby1249 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Basically, I found Highland Avenger boring. There was a lot of tramping around in the woods as our H/h ran from her brother-in-law who was out to capture two young boys who are the heirs of his brother's estate. My chief complaint is that very little seemed to happen beyond our hero's diligent efforts to help our heroine overcome her sexual hangups. Day three and on the run, she decides to see if her now deceased husband's assessment of her sexual prowess is accurate by having sex with a relative stranger. Had this happened a bit later in the novel it would have made much more sense. Couple that with the substantial repetitiveness of the trials and insults our heroine suffered at the hand's of her husband's family and the reader is left with a novel short on action or anything else of much interest.

Bottom line: I found this novel to be a stretch of my credulity and I didn't have the patience or the interest to continue as I simply did not care about either of the main characters. The two stars are given as benefit of the doubt as I stopped at the 40% mark.
