Peek Inside The Highlander's Choice

Lady Sybil Lacey is properly horrified to attend her best friend's wedding in the Scottish Highlands. For Sybil is quite certain that Scots are little more than brutish, whiskey-swilling lechers. Yet she's secretly attracted to Liam MacBride—the tall and devastatingly handsome Scottish laird of Bedlay Castle, who believes English ladies are silly sassenachs. All they can do is quarrel, until loathing turns into sweet, undeniable lust...but a tempestuous, fiery romance between an English lady and Scottish laird cannot end well.

When a Scottish laird meets an English lady…

The Scottish Highlands, 1815

Lady Sybil Lacey is every inch an English woman. She's horrified her best friend is wedding a barbarian Scot. For aren't Scots naught but brutish, whiskey-swilling lechers? So to find herself secretly attracted to the tall and devastatingly handsome Scottish laird of Bedlay Castle is quite disconcerting...

Liam MacBride is convinced that English ladies are silly sassenachs who think of nothing but social events and clothes. So why is he intensely drawn to Lady Sybil? All they do is quarrel...until loathing turns into undeniable lust.

A tempestuous, fiery romance between an English lady and a Scottish laird cannot end well.


" of the best highland romances that I have ever read." --Fresh Fiction

"This book was just so well written and the story itself I totally loved. I believe that a sign of a truly great book is one where the author can transport someone to another place without leaving home, and this one fits the bill." --Romancing the Book

"Moments of humor are well set, keeping the animosity at a slow simmer, rather than boiling over despite the dissenting opinions and desires. Fast paced, cleverly set twists and turns truly set tests for Sybil and Liam, if they survive it all, their burning attraction just may be something more." --I am, Indeed Book Reviews

"A fast paced story of intrigue and romance. Highly recommend to those who enjoy the historical genre." --Morgan's Musings

"There is so much to love about this book! The characters, the setting, and the plot are all excellent!" --Kilts and Swords

"A wonderful story to get completely immersed in." --Talking Books

There is so much to love about this book! The characters, the setting, the plot are all excellent! This could have been a novella, but the author takes the well laid out plan and takes the story through to a complete ending.

I love this series so much. Callie Hutton has such a way with historical romance, whether it be Regency or Western. Her words take you to that time and place and your totally wrapped up in the story.

Very sweet and enjoyable read. Liam and Sybil were great together. My only disappointment was that Liam mother was not given three slaps. But I am a very bloodthirsty person, so there is that. She was a horrid woman who tried to drive away the love of his life. The fact Sybil even allowed his mother ...more

The Highlander’s Choice is not the first book I have read by Callie Hutton. I read A Baron’s Betrayal and enjoyed it a great deal. When I received a request from the publisher to read and review this book in exchange for an honest review, I agreed immediately. This is a lovely romance ...more

Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley.

I've recently started reading Scottish Highlander-type romances. I can't really remember why I never wanted to read them before. I guess I just thought that English Regency romances were so wonderful, that there was no room for improvement. It's bo ...more

By Tin July 07, 2015

Something I learned from reading romance novels and history books is that the United Kingdom had a lot of internal political issues that spanned generations. Sybil is British to the core, and was secretly horrified when her best friend, Margaret, agreed to marry a Highlander. Sybil's family believes ...more

Sybil and Liam face an uphill battle if their love for each other is going to survive and progress to a happy marriage. Both have to overcome their own prejudices about the other's heritage. They also have to contend with Liam's mother who has no liking for the English.

I received a copy of this story through NetGalley from Entangled Publishing for an honest review (thank you!). I don't read a lot of historical romance books, but when I do I prefer the highlander/Scottish genre. This was a great story told from Sylvia and Liam's perspectives. I have not read the pr ...more

Since I can not go to Scotland right now, on occasion I like to read a book that will take me there. The dialect also has to be part of it which this author does have. In this novel this author takes you along with Sybil who has went with her friend Margaret because she is to be married. Sybil thoug ...more

A quick, enjoyable read. I have a real soft spot for Scotland (and for Scottish men), so I was sold from the moment I read the blurb. I really loved Liam, and although it's set in a different era I couldn't help but picture Sam Heughan, aka Jamie Fraser from Outlander. I suspect that this was writte ...more

My favorite book by Callie Hutton to date.

Lady Sybil is holding out for love but she won’t find it at her friend’s wedding—only those barbaric, whiskey-swilling Scots will be in attendance. Oh, but the sexy, strapping, tallness of a Scottish Highlander will win even the most pro-English lass out th ...more

By Sissy's Romance Book Review February 13, 2016

This is the fifth book in the "Marriage Mart Mayhem" series. I have not read the previous books, so for me this was a stand alone book. This book is about 200 pages also which for me made it the right size for a quick read. The heroine, Lady Sybil Lacey is a very English lady and is put off by Scott ...more

They come from different worlds. A rush to judgment can lead to stimulating results. She's English, he's Scottish. No good could come of mixing the two. In Sybil's eyes all Scots are barbaric brutes that care for nothing more than themselves. So why is she so drawn to Liam? In Liam's eyes the Englis ...more
