My Thoughts 
Highlander For The Holidays was just an amazing read and once I returned from the library it was the first book that I could hardly wait to pick up….Janet Chapman has to be one of my favorite authors now especially since I think I have read all of her books now…I think….Highlander For The Holidays was so firmly packed full of everything that makes a great romance and even though it wasn’t my favorite it definitely was a fantastic read. One of the things I truly loved about this book was how Jessie is amazing in the inside and even though she is scarred on the outside Ian still thinks she is sexy and beautiful and I just love that. And any of you that have read this book know exactly what I mean. Although the ending wasn’t what I expected and disappointed me a bit….it still had a great romantic effect. A Winner!!
