    1. I loved this author If you like historical Scottish romance, you should try this author out! she was excellent in her descriptions, but not so descriptive that it took over the book! The feelings and attitudes of people were described as well as charater detail, landscapes etc with enough visualisation that you could see it and feel it as the story unfolded.Nicholas is sent to Scotland to steal the "Highland Targe" from the clan MacAlpin. It is the magical shield preventing King Edward from marc [...]


    2. I must say that no matter what sort of caffeine drink I dosed myself with, whenever I picked this book up to force myself to finish I ended up falling asleep.I tend to love all things Scottish (I would love my own man in a kilt!) and when I looked at the reviews of this book I was happy to pick it up. It had gotten such glowing reviews. What, I wonder, did they read that I missed?This could have been an interesting story - Nicholas, a spy is commanded by his king (English of course) to go toScot [...]

Rowan's Aunt Elspet is in ill health. She is the guardian of the Highland Targe. Without a replacement being named, Rowan is becoming nervous.

    8. Wittig is a very talented author, showing us the growth of feelings and the emotional issues that couples work through, even as she takes us on a political and magical journey through Scotland’s rocky past. Nicholas and Rowan were set up from the beginning to fail, only overcoming the odds due to their own stubbornness and belief that their love is the most important thing for them and their clan. Though Nicholas takes a while to come back to his true nature he is, in the end, a real highlande [...]


    9. THE HIGLANDER BETRAYED is a vibrant, fast-paced, and moving Montlake Romance set in fourteenth-century Scotland. Rowan, the gutsy heroine, falls in love with Nicholas, a braw English spy sent to steal the mythic Highland Targe. Nicolas's growing love for Rowen creates divided loyalties making it difficult for him to complete his mission for King Edward I.

    11.

Her niece Rowan MacGregor, the rock of the family, is doing everything she can to hold her clan together when she meets Nicholas fitz Hugh.Handsome and charming, Nicholas quickly joins clan life — yet he is not what he seems. A cunni [...]


    12. MacAlmostThis was a very sweet tale with very nicey nice characters and a somewhat chaste romance. The story was well-written but dull, especially considering the potential. You have a betrayal that could have wrought a lot more heartache than it did - it was all too easily brushed aside. You have paranormal stuff with the guardianship of the targe that's over before it gets going. And you have a villain who is off page too much to present any real sense of danger.I'm going to recommend this to [...]


    13. Highlander Betrayed by Laurin WittigI love reading about the Highlanders, and the stories about the Fey! This starts out as a typical romance, yet the author reels you in with with great characters and imagination. With a touch of history, SNAP, you've got me! I'm anxious to move on to the second book, give a more detailed review when I've read more. This is an easy book to read and I'm on to the next book!


    14. I did not ken that I would like this book so much.Historical romance with a dash of espionage plus a smidgen of paranormal? Yes, please.Yeah, I'm pretty much hooked now & ready for the rest of the trilogy!


    15. Luckily my grandpa was Scottish Luckily my grandpa was Scottish along with other relatives so I could get into the flow of the book with it's Scottish terms. I had bought the audio version to go with it, but it has a download issue, so I just read the book, standalone. I do have the next book in the series so I will go to book two after a break, but if I hadn't already bought it, not sure I would buy it now. It was ok, nothing more, nothing less. I will get to book two, just not right away


    16. 3.5 starsThe story was good and the characterizations well done --certainly a different slant on the typical fantasy of Scots or Irish lore. I lowered the rating from 4 to 3.5 because of several grammatical or proofreading errors, although not so many or so egregious that it would keep me from continuing to read the series.


    17. Good storyThis was slow getting into. I was afraid that the hero was going to blow it. The story got really interesting.


    18. Do you ever start reading a book and know within the first chapter that you are just going to LOVE the book? That all your fantasies of adventure, magic and love will be met? Seriously, reader, I was not disappointed. This is book 1 of Laurin Wittig’s new series Guardian of the Targe. I’m delighted that I’m catching this series at the beginning. We’re soon to have another sequel in June, 2014. Yes, Laurin Wittig, you have made my day. There is something so, so – well scrumptious about [...]


    19. DNF - I had vowed not to read anymore by this author but accidentally started this one because it was in my queue and didn't check the author. Right away! Right away I could tell because it was the same boring crap in the previous two books I read by her. I do not click with this author at all.


    20. Fantastic storyThe writer, Ms. Laurin Wittig has brought forth a beautiful story about the Scottish Highlander way of life. I truly enjoyed the historical accounts of how life was during these very hard times. Also, I love how Ms. Wittig displays the extremely protective lifestyle of the Highlanders and why. Ms. Wittig also shows the values and love within the clan and how true love can happen in the strangest of ways. I can't wait to read what happens in the next books of this awesome series.


    21. Laurin Wittig’s Highlander Betrayed is the first installment of her newest trilogy set in the medieval Scottish highlands during the tumultuous reign of Edward I. Wittig is an engaging writer with impeccable attention to detail. Her story is well crafted with rich characters and swoon worthy leading men that artfully blends in paranormal elements and highland myth. It is a passionate tale of love, honor, duty, clan and country. Rowan MacGregor and Nicholas fitz Hugh met under false pretenses [...]


    22. Highlander Betrayed is a story of an English spy, Nicholas, who seeks out Scotland’s Targe (“a shield”) for King Edward. Nicholas’s father was English who forced himself on a Scottish woman. Nicholas grew up for 12 years in Scotland before he left to live with his father. Nicholas eventually becomes the most trustworthy and successful spy for King Edward. When King Edward wants to conquer Scotland, he sends Nicholas to retrieve the Targe – a shield that Scotsmen believe protects Scotla [...]


    23. 8/10This story is a mix between a paranormal, highlander, and spy romance. I actually had no idea that this book had some paranormal aspects before I started reading, so I was pleasantly surprised. If you don't like mixing some magic in with your historical romances. a little! Or just be forewarned. This was an interesting story about a Scottish clan that has the power to protect the passage to the Highlands with a shield known as the Highland Targe. Since this shield inspires hope in the highla [...]


    24. The king's most trusted spy is sent to steal a targe from the highlanders. He is to work with his sort of friend, Archie. However, when a wall falls down, he immediately rushes to save the people under it even though he is not usually the type of person to be a hero. For his help, the clan allows his to stay with them in the castle for a while. He falls in love with the chief's niece even though he had initially planned to just use her. He saved her when the wall fell. They would be together but [...]


    25. I’m a sucker for a man in a kilt—I can’t explain it. I hardly have any Scottish blood in my Heinz-57 blend. Spy novels are a love of mine as well. So when I received an uncorrected proof of Highlander Betrayed to read, I was kind of excited.The story line and writing are good, and I enjoyed the characters and setting. There’s enough of the supernatural here to feed the superstitions and folk-lore of the day.Nicholas fitz Hugh is swoon-worthy enough for a romance, but he lacks the necessa [...]


    26. I received this book as a First Read.This is the first book I have ready by Laurin Wittig and, to be honest, I may have passed it up had it not been given to me by GR. But I'm glad I read it, and I'm glad I had the chance to become familiar with a new-to-me author.First, I'll start with what I appreciated and liked about the book. First, I think Ms. Wittig did an excellent job portraying real human emotions in her characters, and not falling back on attempting to make her characters fit an unre [...]

    28. 3 stars / 2 flamesThis was an enjoyable historical romance set in the Highlands during the reign of Edward Longshanks, Hammer of the Scots. I got this book off Kindle Unlimited, and it offered free audible narration with the download. I haven't tried any of the audible narration on Kindle Unlimited yet, so I thought I would give it a try. I started off reading the book, then switched to the narration when I had to do some mindless computer work. Unfortunately, I did not care for the narrator. He [...]


    29. Ever since I saw Braveheart when I was a little girl, I've been fairly obsessive over Scottish historical romances, so when I saw this book available on netgalley for review, I jumped at the opportunity. I am certainly glad that I did. This is a fantastic story of magic, love and betrayal that will enrapture your heart and entrance you in Scottish mythology. The characters are well developed and loveable, even the ornery Scotia won a place in my heart. Nicholas and Rowan are a powerful couple wh [...]
