In the Scottish Highlands, two warriors are about to clash over a woman of passion...They were the unlikeliest of friends debauching their way through London: The Earl of Camdonn, a nobleman of vast wealth and power, and Scottish laird Alan MacDonald, a respected Jacobite with ambitions of his own.But their friendship is destroyed when Alan marries the beautiful Sorcha Stewart—only to witness Cam kidnap her from their bedroom. Then Alan learns the truth: his bride was not an innocent. She took a lover before him—his friend—who taught her the ways of pleasure.Now, Alan will do anything to get his wife back. Cam fights to redeem his honor, even as he refuses to give up his desire. Torn between love and duty, Sorcha must watch as the two men she desires go to war over her. And when the battle lines are drawn, all three lovers are lured into a triangle of forbidden passions...… (mehr)

Oh, I do love my highlanders! Highlanders were everywhere when I was reading just romance, but when I started venturing into erotica I’ve had a hard time finding them. So when I came across this one I was pretty excited. Unfortunately, I didn’t end up liking it as much as I thought I would.I really felt for Alan and Sorcha, betrayed as they were by Cam. I was so wanting them to work things out and have their HEA, I loved both of them and really felt their pain, but I was really disappointed in Alan and his set up/handling of the ménage with Cam. That wasn’t cool. And Cam. Cam was just spoiled. I can stand a guy who throws a temper tantrum. He felt like a child stomping his feet to get what he wants. I mean really guy…man up a little. I just could not relate to him.The book was good, it was well written, well developed, but this one just didn’t do it for me. ( )

I was looking forward to the heights of romance but did not expect to be enmeshed in the action, triumphs and tribulations of the main characters, yet with this book, that is exactly what happened. I eagerly await the sequel and not just for romances sake. Hike thee off to a book emporium and allow yourself to sink into this delightful saga. I promise you will not be disappointed. The setting is the Scottish highlands., October 1715. Two warriors who are heretofore friends, come into conflict with their passion for the same woman.

Sorcha MacDonald is a delightfully feisty as a heroine with deep convictions and little life experience to prepare her for the love of two men. My personal favorite is Grainne, a red-headed whore who helps Alan and Cam discover just what it is they are looking for in a woman. This struggle for heart and soul takes place against the backdrop of battle between the Duke of Argyll, who has England’s backing and the Highlanders.

I felt sympathy, concern, anger, repulsion and romance in one very heady mix. This book deals with the loss of love, the desire for truth, the struggle to be honest with those you love and all with a pinch of faith thrown in. It is very readable and quick read that begs you to go back and start again from page one with more to be gleaned at each reading. It was more than I hoped for which is wonderful and gets a big thumbs up. ( )

There are not enough words in the English language to describe this book. I'll keep it simple: I LOVED it! Easily one of my favorite books I've read this year! Highland Obsession had everything-- passion, lust, love, and even a bit of action.

And boy, was the sex hot, hot hot! Warning: if you are not into explicit love scenes and threesomes, then tread carefully while reading this book, because it's full of it! I personally didn't mind it, and in fact I found myself enjoying it, even though I'm not usually one for a romance novel with multiple partners in the bed at one time. But in HO, it was handled wonderfully, and instead of reading like a cheap porn (which some authors, unfortunately, end up doing), it still had all the great components of a true romance.

And it's all thanks to Dawn Halliday's amazing writing skills-- the characters were very well developed, and they connected, not only during the sex (no pun intended, of course!), but also during every day conversations. They worked through their problems, of which there were a few along the way, they didn't just let it go and then suddenly "make up" a few days later with sex.

Even though I knew from the very beginning that Cam wasn't meant for Sorcha, despite the fact that they'd had a great friendship...and later became lovers, I realized that what they had was important for the development of the rest of the book. They cared for each other, of course, and the passion was there, but they were meant for someone else. Because they already had that deep connection, it didn't bother me when Alex (Cam's best friend) decide to share Sorcha one night. I knew that even though all three of them weren't going to be together, it still meant something-- to all of them, in a way. Alex and Cam had been friends for so long, they were practically like brothers. And even though Sorcha was Alex's, Cam was a part of her past, and to a point, her future, even if it would only be as friends. That's what made this whole story so good-- because Dawn knows how to show the different kinds of loves, and how trust is really needed in a relationship.

As for the rest of the story...well, it was pretty good as well! I would hate to give too much away, so I won't go into specifics, but let me assure you-- if you love a good historical romance, and you don't mind the erotic undertones, Highland Obsession should be at the top of your list for this year! Halliday has captured my attention as an author, and now whenever I see her name on a book, it's instantly going into my cart! They say that you can only get better with practice....well, HO was already pretty close to being a perfect read, so I can just imagine how good her future books will be! One thing's for sure...I can't wait until Cam's story, but I just wish I didn't have to wait so long (2010!).

5/5 STARS! Utterly delightful, sexy, and romantic, Highland Obsession is only the beginning of what I'm sure will be a great little series. And be sure to look out for more of Halliday's books, published by Ellora's Cave, along with the wicked historicals written under her real name, Jennifer Haymore (A Hint of Wicked is out now!). ( )
