    1. 9/14/16: This is an AWESOME series and this one is on sale for $1.99!So, for any of my friends that had this on their TBR, I would grab it while it lasts! One of my favorite Highlander romance series.


    2. 4 to 4 1/2 SHINING STARS!!!I'm going to make this review short and to the point. ILOVEDTHISBOOK!!!This story was fantastic. The writing was superb and the plot marvelously creative. The characters were multi-layered, endearing, and wonderfully human. Unlike some of Banks's other books, the sex scenes were tastefully written and only moderately graphic. I love when authors include delightfully written children within the plot, and I found myself eagerly looking forward to the interactions between [...]


    3. a really entertaining read,though the end for me felt sudden and quick. can someone tell me what happened to the bad guys cause i felt really like they didn't answer what happened to them.


    4. *** 4 1/2 stars ***In Bed with a Highlander was a great surprise! I really enjoyed reading this sweet and sexy Highland romance.Mairin has spent years at a nunnery because she is the illegitimate daughter of the former King of Scotland and has a generous dowry that would tempt men to force her into marriage. She is abducted from the nunnery by bad men loyal to Duncan Cameron, who tries to get her to marry him then beats her when she refuses to say her vows. Along the trip to Cameron lands, her k [...]


    5. When she was his wife, he'd take great delight in advising her of her duty to him and, most important, her obligation to obey him without question.Sigh. What a disappointment. I was so eager to read this book because I adored (ADORED) Banks' "Montgomerys and Armstrongs" trilogy, Never Seduce a Scot and Highlander Most Wanted. I loved Banks' kind, honorable, compassionate, and patient heroes. So I dived into In Bed With A Highlander expecting a real treat.Instead I got stuff like this:Misogynisti [...]


    6. Here are the things that happened to our heroine in this story:Multiple kidnappingsBeat-up Shot with an arrowPoisonedPunched in the faceBackhanded a couple of timesStabbedShe's the original Bad Luck Brian.This story was really eventful, obviously. It was also cute and funny.Mairin finds herself married to Ewan after another man had tried to force her into marrying him. She's got one hell of a dowry. It brings all the boys to the yard.hasn't worked for me. Stupid old curdled milkshake!Ewan is hap [...]


    7. I'm in the mood for a Sexy Laird in a Kilt!!Ewan McCabeLaird McCabe's son is missing and he's ready to go to war in order to get him back!! Only when he finds his son, he's with a bruised and battered woman. When he discovers that she is the illegitimate heir of the King, he knows me must marry her to secure the future of his clan!!His gaze narrowed and she could see his hands twitching again like he’d love nothing more than to throttle her. She was beginning to think it was an affliction of h [...]


    8. 2.5 starsIn Bed with a Highlander had that B movie sort of feel to it. <--my opinionIt wasn't bad. It just wasn't superduperamazing, either. I'm not really sure I have any real complaints, but it kinda left me with a bland taste in my mouth when I closed the book. And maybe that's because I like my romances to have a little more humor in them?I saw this one, and was hoping for a good Men-In-Kilts romance to sorta tide me over till I found my Next Big Read. shrugsAnd it wasn't awful! I read it [...]


    9. ★★★✩✩ I guess I’m in the minority on this one. Lots of my GoodReads friends that I am so often in synch with loved this one. I couldn’t get past a couple of things. Still, I’m willing to give this author another try. I’ve just requested the next book in the series from the library instead of purchasing it this time. Lost interest at a crucial point and had to force myself to go back to it. (Really needed the “I” in the title for a challenge!) Never a good thing. So, conside [...]


    10. A Fun, Romantic, Sexy Tale!In Bed with a Highlander is the first book in the McCabe Trilogy, a sexy, romantic, fun historical romance written by the very talented Maya Banks. I thoroughly enjoyed this story with its twists and turns, wonderful characters, sweet romance and the steamy sex that Ms. Banks writes so well.The StoryThe story opens with Mairin Stewart being kidnapped from the nunnery she’d spent most of her life hiding away in. The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin is heiress [...]


    11. 4.5 stars.LOVED IT!!!I do not read much historical and this started a little rough for me. I was worried. Ewan lost a 1/2 point for their wedding night. But it was smooth sailing after that and I stayed up ridiculously late to finish it. Mairin was funny, brave and sweet. In the beginning she was so brave that I knew I was going to love her. While she skirted around a couple of "stupid" moments, I found her cute and was not frustrated.I loved that the nuns taught her about sex so she thought she [...]


    12. View my ARC review on Under the CoversIn Bed with a Highlander is the first in a new historical romance trilogy by Maya Banks. First off, the covers of this trilogy are amazing, not to mention they all feature the hottie that is Paul Marron. Cue swoons.But there is more! Banks introduces three McCabe brothers who are simply delicious. In Bed with a Highlander is Ewan McCabe’s story. Ewan is the laird of his keep, where his brothers Alaric and Caelen are his second in command. While Ewan himsel [...]


    13. ***4.25 Stars***How do I feel about my first Historical Romance and my first Highlander book??I loved the McCabe brothers and their family dynamic. Each brother brings something different into the fold, but at their core they are unselfish, loving and deeply loyal. The plot was engaging and had me breaking a sweat towards the end there. The secondary characters were nicely developed and I thoroughly enjoyed the family dynamic of the keepeven though Mairin did have her moments. Overall, a great i [...]


    14. What a great start to a highlander series! I’ll be honest, until now I instantly dismissed any Maya Banks book. After reading, (and not really liking), her erotic ménage book ‘Colters’ Woman’ a few years ago, I just knew she wasn’t an author for me. But, never say never, right? Right. Despite so many of my online friends repeatedly saying her new series are great, that they are nothing like her earlier erotica stuff, I still held off reading them. But I love a good steamy highland nov [...]


    15. In Bed with a Highlander: A DAZZLING historical romance sure to leave you sated yet hungry for more of Maya Banks stellar writing!Honestly, it is quite ridiculous how much I enjoyed this here book. I've surpassed fangirldom and have nothing but pure appreciation for this book. It's 5:03 AM and though I have a busy day ahead of me, given I had even an iota of a chance, I would wholeheartedly start the next in the series. 5 Reasons everyone should LIE read In Bed with a Highlander1. The Heroine: M [...]


    16. After reading this entire book, I would say the comparison to Julie Garwood's Highland romance books is apt. Yet, it's good to have a new author who writes Highland romance with a lovable heroine and a fierce hero who is not quite tamed, but definitely gives his heart to her. If it works, why not do it?Favorite aspects of this novel:*Hands down, I really like Mairin. Who doesn't like a heroine who is genuinely kind and good-hearted? One who is also tough and determined but sweet and innocent as [...]



    17. I don't know about you, but I'm starting to think that if you've read one highland romance, you've read them all. I'm not knocking on Ms. Banks in particular because she writes very well. There's just absolutely nothing new or special here. And I think I've read this same plot line in at least half a dozen romances: A pretty little Scottish heiress, hiding out from an evil chief/laird/lord who wants to force her into marriage to claim her lands, ends up in the hands of a rival, gruff yet good, c [...]


    18. Arranged marriage is one of my favorite tropes in romance genre so obviously, I was looking forward to reading this book. However, romance-wise and plot-wise, this story is pretty simple, straightforward and full of clichés (brooding confident overbearing hero and fierce independent heroine prone to cause difficulties). Moreover, I don’t have patience with heroines who always blurt out everything they are thinking. It may happen once but repeatedly through out whole novel? That’s one annoyi [...]


    19. I love the KGI series by Maya Banks, but when it came to reading her historicals I balked. In the past, I’ve found that when I like books of one genre by an author I don’t normally like books of other genres by the same author. So I put off reading this book. Even the description didn’t sway me. It just didn’t appeal. However, Alyssa kept bugging me to read this book. She promised I would like it. Every time I was looking for a book to read she would beg me to read this. And every time I [...]


    20. It had cute and hilarious moments, but to be honest I wasn't much impressed with it like everyone else.I would have enjoyed this book more had we not been reminded of hero's experience during each intimate scene. Like no names or going back in thoughts, but comments like ''this is marvelous experience'' when he explains new position, well I don't want to know how good it was in the past for you dude. Adding to it him having dead wife and kid from her, needless to say it all felt meh to me.(wife [...]


    21. Simply said: I actually, surprisingly, liked book. It was quick, hot and filled with love. I really had the hots for Ewan McCabe. He wasn't all that bad. Nor was his brothers ;) Mairin was alright. She was stupid at time, though I do know it is because she is naive and didn't understand how to do things correctly as she had been on the run for most of her life. Ewan and Mairin was cute together, and were good for each other. Oh, and the McCabe Clan was awesome (most of them). I'm not sure if I'l [...]


    22. As the illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin Stuart new one day she would marry, but she wanted it on her terms. With marriage Mairin holds a large dowry as well as a prominent piece of land, making her a target for those who would rather use her for the power they would gain then treat her as a proper wife.An abduction from the abbey where Mairin has been hiding thrusts her into protecting a young lad who is lost. Wanting to escape from her abductor who plans to force her to wed, sets Mairi [...]


    23. The first book in Maya Banks' McCabe series, set in Medieval Scotland. Googling in the information provided in the novel I believe this story is set around the year 1134. The heroine, Mairin, is stolen from an abbey where she was hiding. Mairin escapes and ends up with hero, Ewan McCabe. While a bit spicy in places I did find it sweet. Some have compared this to Julie Garwood's historicals and I did find a similarity here and there. Mainly with the stubbornness of the heroine and the alphaness o [...]


    24. Mairin was a kick-ass character and she was perfectly matched with Ewan. I really loved the back and forth banter of the two. They were a really good match.Re-read June 2017It's still one of my favorite highlander book. Love how both characters are a tough pair but also love just as tough.


    25. Mairin is tenacious and witty and she needs it to confront her arrogant, stubborn highlander."In bed with a highlander" surely makes for a good start to a highlander series. It was recommended to me by a friend and I'm not disappointed in the least. I really enjoyed these 2 characters as well as the sensual sparks between them.


    26. 3.5 starsLovable characters and great writing.Especially the heroine,Marian.Loved her character the best.An Enjoyable read.


    27. I absolutely adore Maya Banks historical fiction. She created an amazingly realistic backdrop and provides characters with depth. This one is no different. I felt like I was part of this world and got so sucked into the story that I read until almost two in the morning without even realizing it.Mairin Stuart is a young woman in hiding. She is the bastard child of the former King of Scotland. She is set to inherit a large plot of land upon marriage. The land is highly sought after. Her hand in ma [...]


    28. 1 Stars.Not a favorite of mine I won't review the book because I wouldn't have much to say in all honesty. It just wasn't good in my opinion


    29. DNF-ing this one. I'm so bored that I've been stopping my reading randomly like, in the middle of a chapter or even in the middle of conversations within the book because I simply don't care anymore. I had this same issue with another book by this author I'm certain it is simply a case of me not meshing with her writing.
