    1. Overall I liked this book, though I wasn’t 100% sold on why the hero and heroine fell for one another. Throughout the story, Niall doesn’t treat Ana very well. Their mistrust of one another seems to be present for most of the book and the somehow, they are in love. I didn’t quite buy it. Despite this, I am intrigued and will continue the series to see how the mystery unfolds!


    2. Taming A Wild Scot is a romance set in the medieval time period of Scotland around the 1200's. This is one of my all time favorite historical time periods to read in. Many prefer the regency era, however I find this time frame full of passion and a zeal that is hard to find in other time periods. Taming A Wild Scot I found to be the perfect title for this style of story. I was able to obtain this book through my local library, which was really surprising considering it just came out a couple mon [...]


    3. Amanda‘s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsReview copy provided for an honest review.5 STARSI’m so excited to bring to your attention a new author with her debut novel, and in my opinion, a new voice in historical romance. Taming a Wild Scot by Rowan Keats was an enthralling story of intrigue and romance in medieval Scotland. The writing was superb and the plot was wonderfully creative. It was a perfect blend of mystery and love, but also had a unique twist of a paranormal aspect [...]


    4. Posted at TBR Mountain Range amongst other books I've read this year.Escaping from prison with Black Warrior Niall's help, healer Ana must face evil personified before her happy-ever-after is within reach. Engaging, similar to the Knights of the Round Table of Arthurian legend or Robin Hood's merry men, TAMING A WILD SCOT is filled with quests.Healer Ana Bisset finds herself in a hopeless situation when accused of witchcraft. Left without food or water for days, deep in a hole in the dungeon of [...]


    5. Rowan Keats' debut was powerful, intense, and thoroughly engaging. Ana has been wrongfully accused of murder and has lost most of her spirit and soul during her ordeal, yet the dangerous radiating from her rescuer Niall was enough to spark the life in her again. Then, as they set out on a journey as treacherous as her past, they will confront adversities in politics, love, and face enemies with their life. This was thrilling, adventurous, and a book I would recommend to all lovers of Scotland an [...]



    6. My editor sent me the manuscript for this one after I tweeted that I wished someone would write a new medieval. Proving that if you ask (or tweet), you will receive. LOL


    7. I enjoyed this book however I feel like it does not bring the reader in as much as some other books. The romance is cute and it does a good job with the characters but I felt that there is something missing. The story about the necklace is a little confusing and it takes some time to understand by the end it makes more sense though. I liked Ana's character and the way Niall comes in her life and makes her claim to be her husband worked well. I did find it interesting when he seemed to take it mo [...]


    8. Debut author Rowan Keats brings readers a new voice in the Historical Romance genre. Taming a Wild Scot is the first book in the Claimed by a Highlander series and the readers first look at the author's writing style. With a lush highland setting and a whisper of the paranormal this a novel that transcends a few boundaries and will keep the readers interest with ease. This isn't your typical highland romance, as the hero isn't the Laird and the heroine isn't the daughter of an opposing clan, whi [...]

    10. Reviewed hereThis book starts in the midst of a pretty dramatic situation. We meet Ana, the heroine, stuck in a prison, seemingly just hours from her death. She hasn’t eaten in days and her body is starting to shut down. Ana is a healer and had been wrongly accused of witchcraft and murder. Lucky for her, when a group of men help to break out the man sharing her prison cell, one of the men takes pity on her and helps her to escape as well. Yes, you may have guessed it – this is the hero, Nia [...]



    11. Ana Bisset was once wrongly accused of murder. She was starving to death until a man came to her rescue. Niall, the man who rescued her was there to save a family member, and took piety on her. Years later Niall finds her when he’s looking for a necklace to clear his family’s name. He uses her, posing as her husband.Taming a Wild Scot is the first book in the Claimed by a Highlander series. As is typical of historical romances, the story switches between Ana and Niall. It also switches to Ni [...]


    12. 4 stars.It is uncommon to meet the heroine of a romance in prison, but that’s where we meet Ana. She’s been confined in an oubliette - a hole in a dungeon, basically used for prisoners their captors plan on forgetting about. Rarely are these prisoners fed or given anything to drink, and Ana’s case is no exception.Why is she here? How does she escape? Fantastic beginning for an historical romance.★★★ This, the first book in Rowan Keats’s Claimed by the Highlander series, takes place [...]

    14. Breaking into a prison to free his half brother, the hero also stumbles upon an emaciated female whom he also frees as well. But once outside the prison, the hero's loyalty to his brother forces him to make a hard choice to leave her behind. The fact has plagued him a year later when he once again stumbles upon the enchanting woman. She's in better health now and has employment as a healer to the pregnant wife of a baron. When the man from the prison walks right up to her and declares himself to [...]


    15. Taming a Wild Scot takes place in 1298, the oldest time setting I've read so far. Accused of witchcraft, Ana is held prisoner awaiting death when she is rescued by Niall. He is there to rescue his older brother Aiden since he is awaiting execution for the theft of a royal necklace. The plot is pretty straightforward - clear of the name of Aiden and take back their land.I thought a lot of time was spent with Aiden and his quest early on in the book. His story is set for book two and it looks like [...]


    16. This books starts in a hole in a dungeon and ends on a cliff, and the adventure in between was filled with mystery, angst, magic, passion and intrigue. Niall MacCurran saves Ana Bisset on a whim, and is happy to find her in a place where he can use her to aid his quest.Niall is definitely not a hero in the traditional sense, he blackmails, pushes and wrangles Ana into helping him with no qualms about how it could affect Ana that is until he falls for her. I enjoyed watching him redeem himself an [...]

    18. Captivating Scottish romance 4.5I love to read a medieval romance set in Scotland’s Highlands. Taming a Wild Scot was perfect for me! This Scottish story is the first one of Rowan Keats’s new debut in her Claimed by the Highlander series. It has everything, a medieval reader, needs; Niall, a strong alpha male hero, a warrior, a hero for Ana, a delicate heroine, a healer. I knew the moment that I started to read it; it would keep my interest until the end, which gets you in the mood to watch [...]

    20. Rating: 3.5/5Taming a Wild Scot is a solid start to this new highlander series, delighting us with a heroine who can more than handle herself and surprising us by adding a paranormal touch to the historical setting. It's not difficult to guess the basic path this story is going to take when we pick it up–any lover of romance well knows the overall plot arc in advance–so what truly matters is the journey our couple takes in order to be together, and a few small niggles and flaws aside, Ana an [...]


    21. Scottish historical romance is my absolute favorite. They can't be written fast enough to feed my addiction so I'm happy to have a new author to add to my list.Like many others, I was put off by the hero being so single-minded about his quest. I understand he was in a very tough spot balancing the need of many with the need of one but a difficult decision can still be made with care and honorable behavior. He failed to do so and therefore is not hero material in my opinion. I don't believe he ev [...]


    22. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book through the First Reads giveaway program.I wasn't sure what to expect out of this medieval themed romance. I'm very much a feminist, so a lot of the older 70s and 80s romances that were set in medieval times really bothered me due to the weak role played by women. I'm glad I decided to give this book a try, because Ana Bisset is a great female character! She's a strong woman with her own mind, but her character is extremely appropriate for the med [...]


    23. On a whim, I picked up a couple hetero romances from the grocery store — and this was the first of them. And I was quite surprised! Everyone sort of talks down about grocery store romance books, but I think a lot of people secretly read them. Romance books are, after all, the largest selling genre, I believe.This being my first historical Scottish romance, I have to say that I don’t know what the genre conventions are. I don’t know what’s been overdone and what’s new and exciting. So, [...]


    24. I received a copy of this book for free from a contest. I was pleasantly surprised how good this book was. I read it in a day, it kept me curious as to what would happen next. The trials/ action weren't over done. I was very wrong about who the culprit was, which always pleases me when I'm reading.When I finished reading I was a little bummed that it ended, I wanted it to continue. I am looking forward to the second book!Why 4 stars not 5? Only thing lacking, in my opinion, was a little more de [...]


    25. Strong heroine, strong hero. I like that the hero wasn't really a hero. He was a good guy and all, but the author didn't spend the whole book taking about how noble he was, how honorable he was, how much he struggled with his desire, etc. He was a guy and pretty believable. I also like how the heroine had suffered some stuff and had some baggage (don't we all) but it didn't rule her, she didn't wine about it and she also want made out to be equal to an angel or a paragon of all that is light and [...]
