    1. Review Courtesy All Things Urban FantasyCRIMSON HEART marks the first time I’ve read a book in a series without having read the ones that came before – but kilts and magic? Then adding in the bonus of a historical bent? Come on. It’s a complete home-run, book wise. For me, anyway.Truth told, if I were reading this for my personal collection, I’d probably have rated it higher, but since the focus of ATUF is urban fantasy and paranormal works, I have to factor that into the review. Don’t [...]

    4. With magic, secrets, and a lovely romance, Crimson Heart was a fantastic historical romance. I really liked this book. It was a wonderful addition to the series and I really enjoyed reading it.Elena was lovely. She was strong and determined to live her life away for all the political battles that her parentage could have gotten her caught up in. She was clever, tough, and a likable character. I thought she was great.Searc was so wonderful. Because of his killing magic, he thought he was evil. Bu [...]

    7. Rating: 4 1/2 starsI received a copy of this book from the Entangled Publishing and the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.This is not a story that you will want to skip around on. The author includes a mystery and if you skip around you may miss something and you will want to know what happens between Searc and Elena. There are scenes that may have you laughing and the author has an ending that will have you smiling. Highland Hearts has been a great series [...]

    10. Better and betterThis series of Highland romances just gets better and better. Searc and Elana were ment to be. Both hiding secrets that could destroy many lives come together to find love everlasting.


    11. Heather McCollumDo you love a land of mysterious legends, magical powers and let's not forget, the sexy and yummy men in KILTS? Then this book is for you.Elena Seymour is the illegitimate daughter of King Henry VIII and has always felt like a burden on others. She has been hidden in Scotland, as a glorified and cheap governess, for Lady Suffolk.

    12. Originally reviewed for Tea and Book.There is always magic in the Highlands and Heather McCollum does a wonderful job of explaining how those who have been steeped in their history and accept the magic must often walk a fine line between the church and the gifts that God gave them. Add to the fact that life in the Highlands is never easy and peace is often hard to find. In Crimson Heart Book Three of her Highland Hearts Series, Ms. McCollum shares a story of magic and faith, politics and power, [...]


    13. I'm a sucker for kilts and they are my naughty indulgence when it comes to books. Those and pirates but those do not play in here. For me This book was good and I really enjoyed it, but the magic aspect for Searc and his family felt a bit lacking. Now don't get me wrong it's a historical romance with drama, action, adventure, and of course damsel in distress. But I feel like it kind of took a backseat. Other than that little bit it was a great read and i really enjoyed it.


    14. Okay, I'll admit it. The shirtless guy in the kilt is totally the reason I picked this one up in the first place. Yep, I'm that shalloweven though a teensy part of me is concerned that this might be slightly inaccurate. (Shirtless? In Scotland? Isn't it a wee bit chilly up there? Elena often complained of being on the cold side, soHang on. My mistake--he's a Highlander and therefore impervious to cold. Right? ;) But I digress)Fortunately, there's plenty of story awesomeness to give credence to m [...]


    15. seh-bookblog/2014--Crimson Heart, third installment in the Highland Hearts series, heats up the spring whether, with its warming romance and dramatic family excess.

On his trave [...]


    16. I really enjoy a good historical romance and mix that with a little magic then definitely even better. This is the first time reading this author for me, the cover and title drew me first-highlanders being ones that have a special place in my heart love to read them. Once I begin I was soon swept away to the time period with a strapping highlander Searc who has been hiding a secret from his family but thanks to circumstances it is brought out front and center. Thinking they will not accept him a [...]

    24. CRIMSON HEART by Heather McCollum is a intriguing Historical Romance set in 1554 Scotland. #3 in "A Highland Hearts" series, but can be read as a stand alone. However, I would suggest reading the others in this amazing series. CRIMSON HEART is the final book in this series. See,"Highland Heart"(Novella),"Captured Heart","Tangled Hearts", and "Untamed Hearts" (Novella).This is, Searc Munro, a Highland warrior with a dark,lethal secret and Elena, who is running from her linage and her powerful sis [...]


    25. First of all, it has been a long time since I have read a truly well written historical romance where every aspect is true to the time period of the setting. Searc and Elena come together accidentally in the forest during an ambush where Elena is the prey. This novel takes place amidst political intrigue, mysticism, murder and escape. Searc and Elena, each guarding secrets that are life altering. As Searc provides his protection to see Elena safely to her destination, they are blown off course b [...]


    26. have to start out by saying, that I did enjoy this story of Searc and Elena, but I did not love it as I did all of the others in this series. The other books were much more descriptive in reference to their love scenes. These were descriptive, but not as good as the others. I guess if you have readers who are offended with "too descriptive", then this book should be o.k. I want every detail in the books I read. This is book 5 I believe if we count Alex and Rachel's story. Would like to see more [...]

It’s a complete home-run, book wise. For me, anyway.Truth told, if I were reading this for my personal collection, I’d probably have rated it higher, but since the focus of ATUF is urban fantasy and paranormal works, I have to factor that into the review.

    28. Crimson Heart by is an excellent read if you like a side of history to go along with your fiction. I do so it was just perfect. Searc is the classic, noble, flawed male who leaves home to protect his clan form himself, or so he thinks. I love the way he changes in how he views himself over the course of this story. Elena is the courageous type of heroine that I love. Only if -- she had truly been able to change some of England’s history at this time. Together they are better and stronger than [...]
