Every few years, the carnival takes up residence on the Munro lands. Logan Munro cannot see the appeal...until he meets Katrina, the dark-haired, green-eyed granddaughter of the carnival’s fortune teller. Logan has never met such a beautiful woman—nor does he understand the peculiar fortune her grandmother delivers to him.

When Katrina is the only carnival performer to escape an attack by the treacherous Gunns, Logan takes her under his protection. He vows to look after her while his brother’s army takes on the Gunns, and to set right the wrongs that have been done to her people. When the Gunn army surrounds the Munro keep, trapping Logan, Katrina, and a handful of others inside, the vow begins to look like a fool’s errand.

Will true love transform a confounded Scot into a Highland hero ?


My Thoughts and Review

This is the 3rd book in this series about the Munro brothers.This author created a short story in three parts.Each brother was reluctant to wed not because they did not what to find love but, because of the ongoing feud with the Gunn's which posed a death threat to the entire clan.

This was enjoyable read and the conclusion to the Munro brother series.


The story concluded with last and final battle with the Gunn's. After a tribe of Gypsies were kidnapped and taken off the Munro lands they are forced to do battle and end this feud once and for all.

This is Logan and Katrina story.Katrina a gypsy lass who is beautiful and a caring person. Then there is Logan the youngest brother and a bit of a rogue.The two meet a feel a connection to one another.Is it fate or coincidence? Katrina's gypsy fortune teller grand-mother saw this in a vision many years ago knowing that Logan was destined to do a great many things.

This short story was a very pleasant read.Little bit of romance with a twist of fate and a bit of mystery.I enjoyed all the characters in these short stories as the were funny and engaging and kept you entertained.All so different but as a whole very formidable cast.


I think the author by creating these short stories is just getting her feet wet.There looks to be much promise in her future books. I would love to see a full length novel at some point.

Other reviews I have read there only complaint is that they wished the book/story was a little longer and I have to agree would have like to explore these characters a little bit more.But, we have to remember it was a short story to begin with.

Who doesn't want to read about a sexy Highland Warrior?It was nice to see Logan and his brothers find there true loves among the rugged and dangerous Highlands and finally have someone to love and who loves them back creating a whole new generation for there children in a brand new world without waring clans.

A light and fun read ! Be sure to read about the other brothers as well.

If he does, will he be able to set her free…or will the Outlaw Scot take a Stolen Bride all the way back to the Highlands?

My Thoughts 

I love stories about Highlanders so I was excited to read this story.

This is the first book in this series about the Munro brothers.This author created a short story in three parts.Each brother was reluctant to wed not because they did not what to find love but, because of the ongoing feud with the Gunn's which posed a death threat to the entire clan.

This was and enjoyable short Read .The main character Ramsey struggles much with his conscious over his love he bore Sabrina. They grew up together and formed and strong attraction that never bared fruit.

Many years late Ramsey has encounter Sabrina again and his heart still feels the same as it ever did.As he continues to deny what he wants but, Sabrina is kidnapped and now his hand is forced.

Love the characters Sabrina and English lass and Ramsey a rough and tough warrior. Two opposites yet they compliment each other and need one another .You could see the love they held for one another but, life just got in the way.We see a little spunk from Sabrina you would never suspect.

Ramsey a Highland Warrior makes some hard choices in this story weather to take the bull by the horns and take what he wants or lose the one thing that has been a constant bright light in his waring rough life as highlander always forced to do battle in order to protect his clan.

I think the author by creating these short stories is just getting her feet wet.There looks to be much promise in her future books. I would love to see a full length novel at some point.

Other reviews I have read there only complaint is that they wished the book/story was a little longer and I have to agree would have like to explore these characters a little bit more.But, we have to remember it was a short story to begin with.

My Thoughts

This is the second book in this series about the Munro brothers.This author created a short story in three parts.Each brother was reluctant to wed not because they did not what to find love but, because of the ongoing feud with the Gunn's which posed a death threat to the entire clan.

I think the author did a good job.She tried to create a story of one brother trying to find love in a trying time.Both characters in this story had strong individual personalties. Cara the feisty one.Alec a warrior who is hardened shows his soft caring side.


I think the author by creating these short stories is just getting her feet wet.There looks to be much promise in her future books. I would love to see a full length novel at some point.

Other reviews I have read there only complaint is that they wished the book/story was a little longer and I have to agree would have like to explore these characters a little bit more.But, we have to remember it was a short story to begin with.

And Enjoyable read with likable characters !

This is Book 1 in The Immortal Heat series.

My Thoughts and Review


All I have to say it wow what a very erotic hot read this story turned out to be.This book is the first and a new series and Debut book for Britt Bury.This story was engrossing right from page one.

Something fresh and new to read about.

Kelvin is on a mission to kill the last Campbell who turns out to be Izel Campbell a female clan member and not a male.Although Kelvin senses something from the get go about Izel that she is special and there is not way her will be able to go through with his initial task what more is he recognizes that Izel is his chosen mate .

The couple take is on a journey where we experience love, hate, betrayal, friendship with the combined couple and clan. I found myself laughing and crying quite a bit throughout this story and at one point toward the end I thought I was going to have to get the tissues out.

I loved the story from beginning to end. All the characters we engaging and engrossing. Izel was full of fun whit and had and outspoken personality that had you laughing like a loon at some of the things that came out of her mouth.

The book took you into a new realm of fantasy and magic something as a reader I have not read before.Have to say I loved the story .This couple didn't have a easy road to find ones true love and there mate for life. The past is not easily put aside to enjoy what may be.The book was a page turner from beginning to end for me waiting to see what happened next.I am a sucker for love and happy endings. There was quite a bit of sexual banter and crude words used during there love making scenes making the story more intense and playful.

This was a keeper in my book.Hoping this is not the last we hear of Izel and Kelvin hopefully we will here from them again in the books to come.A recommend read to those looking for something new a fresh. Looking forward to reading more of Britt Bury's book in the future.
What a enjoyable read !
