    1. I know with all the good reviews something is wrong with me, but I didn‘t care for this book. I read to page 150 and found the hero and heroine still wasn’t on what you’d call real conversing terms, they knew each other and really have the hott’s for each other, but they are not getting together yet, even just to talk I kept reading and got to page 190 and found now they had some hot sex, but wait they are still not on good speaking terms or together (so, I am bored now! Although the gho [...]


    2. I loved the supernatural element to the story and Scandia, the ghost, had a much more interesting and romantic love story than Catriona did. However, I did like how Catriona wanted to help Scandia and felt sympathy for her.For me, this book would have been better if I had liked the hero more and if the story had been more romantic. I just didn't feel like the hero and heroine felt anything more than lust for each other. James kept saying he loved Catriona, but he didn't show it. He always pushed [...]


    3. When the King's man comes to 'Glen Of Many Legends', to inform three clans that have been warring for years, that the time has come to resolve all matters. He informs all three Lairds of each clan that they will have to meet and battle and fight for one clan to reign over the Glen. When Lady Catriona hears along with her brother Alasdair, of these summons, so is full of rage. Catriona is very passionate about her home and her clan and views the other two clans as enemies. But she also knows that [...]


    4. Would you believe I just won this book through FirstReads? My luck is definitely not good enough for this to be remotely random; obviously my ridiculous level of activity on the site is being rewarded! I may never have to go to the library again!!! Anyway, as one reader labeled this book, I'll enjoy reading about "highland hunks in kilts."Okay, now that I've finished reading This book was a bit different than my usual fare - I typically stay away from covers sporting bare-chested men, because (a [...]


    5. A three clan fued for one piece of land, known as the Glen of Many Legends, that is connected to all three. James and Catriona have had a forbidden interest in each other, unknown by anyone, for years and their fueding clans would see it as a betrayal to them. King Robert makes an appearance, a planned and public battle ensues between the clans, Innocence is lost in more ways than one, and ghosts and magical foretellers help win the battles. Love and passion blossom, and we see that other romanc [...]


    6. I tried to read this as my first honest-to-goodness bodice-ripper romance. I gave it more than a hundred pages. I don't know whether books in this genre normally have characters spend so much time thinking about the object of their affection, and get hot and bothered, but not actually doing anything or the plot moving forward an inch, but that was really to much for me. I couldn't finish it. There wasn't even a real sex scene until page 175 or so, which maybe was too long of a wait for me.


    7. My Synopsis:The Glen of Many Legends has housed 3 feuding clans for years. The Clan MacDonalds, Camerons, and Mackintoshes all lay claim to parts of this Glen and each feel they are the rightful sole owner of the Glen. Bad blood and many deaths all lay between the clans. More recent years the bloodshed is less and they have all learned to grudgingly tolerant each others presents but all are still sworn enemies. With a death of one woman this sort of truce is shatter. The woman in question is bir [...]

    9. I have been in sort of a "historical slump", a slump I thought included highlanders. Oh, boy, was I wrong!As the book opens, the last owner of the Glen has died, leaving descendants in each of the three Clans that live in the Glen. The King has ordered the three Clans to each put up 30 men, who will fight to the last one standing. The victorious clan will own the Glen. Alasdair MacDonald has just received the messenger bearing the news and he is not happy. Catriona, his sister, can't believe her [...]

    11. Just sixty-some pages into the book James had smoke rising from the pages just by his words and I was totally in love with him. This couple definitely have chemistry! I see him as my sword tossing hero. :) I see myself in Catriona with her hellcat ways and she's always at any given moment ready to jump into the fray with dagger raised to protect those she loves and herself if needs be. What fire this woman has! As always and one of the things that I love about Sue-Ellen's stories is that the lor [...]

    13.

    14. Sins of a Highland Devil is set in 1300s Scotland, in the Highlands. It tells of 3 clans - the MacDonalds, the Camerons, and the Mackintoshes - who all grudgingly own the Glen of Many Legends together. However, they are constantly fighting over the property of the Glen, so much that it has attracted the attention of the King, who sets up a fight to the death to see which clan will ultimately win the Glen.The "Devil" of the title is James Cameron, the chieftain of the Cameron clan. He and Catrion [...]


    15. Ok, first things first. Get rid of any preconceived notions that you may have about this book! Right off the bat I can tell you that almost if not all of them are wrong. This is NOT a bodice ripper, this is not a hot and heavy romance with the H and Hr sneaking around for face time, and the pack that the three women make does not come at the beginning like you might think. This book IS the first in a series of three books, it DOES have a romance but said romance is not the most important thing i [...]


    16. This is a delightful story of Scottish lads and lassies that will make you wish you were standing in their place. A story of love, lust, longing, ghosties, hatred, rivalry and honor. A story that will talk to your soul of times long past when adults actually knew how to act like adults while chivalry stands tall and bright as a beacon in the night.Catriona MacDonald is the epitome of the red headed Scottish woman. Daring, proud, fearless and loyal as any clanswoman could possibly be. Only proble [...]


    17. Sins Of A Highland Devil is the first book in Highland Warriors Trilogy After reading this book I can't wait for more to follow. I was captivated from the beginning and was drawn to every page all the way to the end.The author writes with such passion and description that it makes the characters leap right off the page. I love a book that I can get lost in and this one I was transported back in time and was able to lose myself in the story for a while.Historical romance is one of my favorite boo [...]


    18. “I have seen that peace will be had when innocents pay the price of blood and gold covers the glen.”This is Gorm’s prophecy to James, the laird of Clan Cameron regarding King Robert’s writ that the three clans of the Glen of Many Legends compete in a trail by combat to determine which Clan will be the sole inhabitant of the glen. Concerned over the king’s orders, two members of feuding Clans, a fiery redhead, Catriona MacDonald and proud, handsome James Cameron are drawn together. In t [...]


    19. Sins of a Highland Devil by Sue-Ellen WelfonderThis book is absolutely wonderful! Love, Desire, Intrigue, and a battle to the death! I could not put the book down.The first in a trilogy about 3 clans feuding over land, the book is non-stop suspense and thrill. I could not wait to find out what James Cameron, chief of his clan, would do next. He must deal with a King, lowland interlopers, betrayal by other highland clans, menacing weather, and a woman who will not let him be.This is a must read f [...]


    20. Sins of a Highland Devil lays the foundation for what will certainly be a fun romantic trilogy. We meet all three romantic leads and each character comes across distinct and clearly different from the others. I admit that I particularly like James Cameron with his longstanding "feud" with the young and feisty Catriona MacDonald. Their shared highland pride and the unreasonable demands of the Stewart king make them natural allies, even if they allow the longstanding feud to stand in their way. Fu [...]


    21. If you like the Scottish/historical/romance genre, you will without doubt like this one. The hero and heroine are a bit slow getting together -- no thanks to her -- but finally give in to lust, then eventually to love. A good start to the trilogy -- one lass down and two to go. All the men sounded yummy, but not much talk of baths or hygiene. Well, it was 1300 and something, so I guess hygiene came later. The hero was hardly a "devil", but I guess the title just implies that he is. I enjoyed it [...]


    22. Catriona and James have a wonderful love story. The author spins a tail about the Land of Many Legends. There are three books in this series, all containing a different legend that is revealed.There is magic and other supernatural parts weaved throughout the novels.There were times when I felt that the books would drag and I would find myself just skimming through the pages. I wish there had been more conversation amongst the characters.Once I start a book or a series, I have to finish them.The [...]


    23. Finished this one on the bus this morning. What I LOVE about Sue-Ellen Welfonder's writing is the way she describes the glens and mists and the bodies of water is you don't just imagine them. If you close your eyes and picture what she has described, when you open them you are surprised you aren't really there. She doesn't just carry you away in your imagination -- she takes a part of you with her characters. You can feel the mist rising above your ankles, see the white deer and feel the magic.


    24. First Reads Winner!! Thank you !!This was an interesting story. I loved the magic and ghosts. Made it so different from the other highlander stories that I have read. Its did feel like it took forever for them to finally get together. The battle at the end was intense. I hated that they had to fight at all. The cloaked figure was a disappointment for me. I thought there would be more to it than that. But that is ok because the rest of the story was delightful.


    25. Harriet says: "However, none of the lairds are aware that their sisters have plotted a different gender outcome in the battle for who will be the last man standing in the Glen of Many Legends." "Sub-genre fans will be hooked into a one sitting read of Sins of a Highland Devil while anxiously awaiting the middle tale of what looks like will be one of the best medieval trilogies in years."A "one sitting read" from forty books a day Harriet :p


    26. The leaders of three clans must battle to the death on the order of the King to determine who will reign over the Glen of Many Legends. James Cameron is one of these men. Catriona is the sister of one of the other men supposed to fight. Catriona and James fall for each other but must fight against their clans being rivals and the fact that James is supposed to face Catriona's brother in a fight to the death.


    27. I enjoyed this book. It set up the series quite well and the characters started to take shape. There were quite a few small things that touched me. I am definately looking forward to the rest of the series. I have never been disappointed by a Welfonder book and I am glad to say that the trend continues.


    28. The perfect Highland romance to use as an escape from boring reality. Sins of a Highland Devil takes romance to a whole new level. Devilishly delightful and intoxicating, the characters come to life and you can't help but be swept away by Sue-Ellen's writing talent. Five stars!


    29. This was a first reads winner that I very much enjoyed. It's an HR that has a bit of the mystic/fantasy thrown in. I'm looking forward to the remainder of the series (which don't even have release dates yet).


    30. Good start.The first book in this series was a pleasure to read, even if your eyes couldn't read it fast enough to make you happy. Very interesting characters and love, hate, hope and huge battles. Can't wait for the next one.
