Review: Enchanted by the Highlander by Lecia Cornwall

Review: Enchanted by the Highlander by Lecia Cornwall Enchanted by the Highlander Author: Lecia Cornwall Reviewer: Una Rating: A I absolutely love Ms. Cornwall’s Highland Fairy Tale series.  This latest installment, Enchanted by the Highlander, is another delightfully romantic and compelling tale. In this story, we have a retelling of Cinderella.  But like the other stories in this series, it is a fresh retelling with twists and turns that make it wholly its own fairytale.  Gillian (Gilly) has always gone along with what her sisters and father have wanted, so much so, most of the time they even speak for her.  Gilly may be shy, but she is not unintelligent.  She is actually quite observant, intelligent, and...

Review: When a Laird Finds a Lass by Lecia Cornwall

Review: When a Laird Finds a Lass by Lecia Cornwall When a Laird Finds a Lass Author: Lecia Cornwall Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: As much as I enjoyed the previous novel, Beauty and the Highland Beast, I truly loved When a Laird Finds a Lass.  Sadly though, Vampbard isn’t able to review this book with me as she is nursing a minor injury so you are stuck with just my thoughts. Just as with the previous story, this novel is based on a fairy tale.  When a Laird Finds a Lass is inspired by The Little Mermaid with a little bit of West Side Story thrown in. I loved how the essence of the fairy...

Review: Beauty and the Highland Beast by Lecia Cornwall

Review: Beauty and the Highland Beast by Lecia Cornwall Beauty and the Highland Beast Author: Lecia Cornwall Reviewer: Una & Vampbard Rating: A What We’re Talking About: A special treat for TWITA fans, a joint review from Una and Vampbard (VB)! Una picked up Beauty and the Highland Beast, simply because Beauty and the Beast is one of her favorite fairy tales.  That it is in a highland setting – win-win (one word: kilts)!  Though she didn’t know what to expect, she was pleasantly surprised by how gripping and compelling this novel was. She thoroughly enjoyed it.  The setting is fascinating; the fairy tale is woven within the story in such a way as to be a subtle...
