    ARC received for review Another great book by Ms. Howell. Murdering cousins who try to pin the blame on a wee lassie. Gybbon falls for Mora slowly without any extra bells or whistles. He protects her and helps her get to the bottom of all the lies. Loved all the secondary characters in Gybbon's wide range of family.

The plot was tightly written and the characters were likable and relatable. The romance was such a slow burn that I began to wonder if it was there at all. They finally slept together, but neither of them had any thoughts of love or marriage – just lust. Then, all of a sudden – they were in love and didn’t mind if they were forced to marry. I also had to wonder why the title was Highland Devil – unless it was named for Robert, the villain of the story. He was certainly a devil and worse. This was more an ensemble cast rather than having an outstanding hero who does heroic things to save his lady. Sir Gybbon Murray doesn’t command a large force of men or have his own large keep, etc. However, he is the brother of Harcourt Murray who is Laird of his clan. He is also good friends with Sigimor who is laird of his clan and a kinsman of Mora. Gybbon works with and follows the lead of these two lairds in order to protect and rescue Mora. Mora was preparing to flee her family home when her four cousins break into the house. She manages to get her younger brother out the window so he can run to a nearby friend for protection. Mora isn’t so lucky. Her cousin grabs her, hits her and taunts her with the fact that he has already murdered her parents and that her two older brothers won’t be returning home. Mora knows she has to escape and when her tiny runt of a cat claws her cousin’s face, she knows that is her chance. She grabs her kitten and heads out at a run, but not before Robert’s knife manages to scrape down her side. She gets out and finds a place to hide, but she knows her cousins will be hot on her trail. Mora heads to the home of her mother’s kinsman. She stays on the road as much as she can but hides when horses are approaching. One rider passes on a beautiful horse – and – to her good fortune, she sees that same rider camping out further down the road. If he’ll just leave the site for a moment or two to relieve himself – she can ‘borrow’ his horse. When he finally does leave the area of the campfire, she sneaks in and saddles his horse, then awkwardly climbs aboard – only to find herself promptly tossed on the ground by the horse. The horse’s owner, Gybbon, feeds her and gets her story out of her. Then, when her cousins stop in at his campsite, he hides her from them. Gybbon tells her he will take her to Sigimor’s keep and that he was planning to stop by there anyway. They ride along hiding when others approach and finally make it to Sigimor’s keep. After they rescue her young, seven-year-old brother, Sigimor decides she’d be safer at Gybbon’s brother’s keep and they devise a plan to get her there safely. I was really proud of Mora – she was being so strong, smart, and brave. I was just thinking, hey, this is going to be good because she isn’t going to do any of those TSTL things. She’s really being smart – and then, of course – comes the TSTL event. I did enjoy the read, but if you are looking for gripping excitement and swashbuckling heroes, then you will probably find this book a little slow. I kind of like the ensemble approach and the fact that the hero can and does take advice and direction.

He kills her parents and sets his sites on Mora and her young brother Andrew and even his own brothers cannot stop him. Mora sends her brother off to their Aunt Maggie and runs to her mother's cousin, Sir Sigimor Cameron for help. Failing to kill Mora and Andrew, Robert tells the sheriff and his father that she killed her parents, his father's aide and poisoned his father (the Laird). Mora is now wanted and running for her life, but her escape attempt is hindered by the fact she is injured and on foot. When the opportunity to steal a horse arises, Mora will get more than she bargained for. Sir Gybbon Murray is a "roamer", he drifts from place to place and has no desire to set down roots. But Gybbon is a man of honor and instead of condemning Mora for trying to steal his horse, he offers to help her reach Sigimor. They make their way to Sigimor and upon arrival, Mora is ill from the injury Robert inflicted. Instead of leaving her, Gybbon becomes her champion, promising to find Andrew and help them clear her name. He uses his considerable contacts to help Mora and her brother, reasoning she has no one else, her parents are dead and her two older brothers haven't been heard from since they left for France almost 3 years ago, Mora believes Robert had them killed too. Once she is recovered enough to leave, Gybbon takes her to his brother's keep. Upon arriving, Mora suffers a relapse and Gybbon cares for her. He and Mora become closer and Gybbon thinks that he may be ready to stop wandering. When his brother offers him land, he decides to go and take a look. He tells Mora he will return in a few days and then they will see what can be done about her problem with Robert. Mora decides that she can resolve her problems herself by simply talking to her uncle and when Gybbon leaves, she sets out alone. But things will not work out the way Mora planned and Robert will make sure she pays for his crimes. When she is imprisoned, help comes from an unexpected source and may well save her life. Gybbon returns to learn Mora is missing, he is sure he knows where she has gone and will need help to save her. He heads out with his brother to see Sigimor and form a plan to rescue her. At Sigimor's he learns what happened to her and meets her two brothers David and Niall, who have returned from France after several assassins sent by Robert, failed to kill them. They want to save their sister and want to know who Gybbon is to her. They manage to save Mora, but Gybbon still has hurdles to jump before he can claim Mora as his own. This is a well written, steady paced novel with likable characters, cameos from Sigimor/Jolene and Hartcourt/Annys, an odd little cat, a really, really vile villain, steamy-ish love scenes, some tense moments, some amusing interchanges and finally a very sweet HEA complete with an epilogue. *I am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC that was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher.*

So to recap we have a bordering on insane, murderous villain, an attractive, hunted young woman, a handsome highland hero, and a host of others giving a well rounded story that fits so well with Howell's Murray Family series.

    Overall I really enjoyed this book! It was my first book from Hannah Howell and I will definitely be trying out more. I loved Gybbon and how protective he was of Mora! Mora was such a fantastic character and I loved how resilient she was. The two of them together made a great couple and really fit well. I have to say though some of my favorite characters were the side characters!

As a cat lover Freya also stole the show, what a loyal companion! The only thing I wish had been a little different was the way Gybbon and Mora got together. It seemed a little quick to head to the bedroom and then Gybbon wasn’t sure of his feelings after. I mean it made since it just seemed a little different especially for the time period it takes place in. Over all a super fun and entertaining read!

Not a lot and that is why I was sorry to turn the last page. Love those wonderful Murrays!!

    You know that feeling you get when you come home from a long vacation? Like it was really nice to be away but as soon as you walk through the door to your home, it was like you never left. Instant comfort. That is what reading about the Murray clan is like. If you have ever read any of my reviews before, you will notice that I am a hardcore thriller reader. I love the dark side of life and am not a big romance reader at all. Once in a while, sure, but not all the time. However, I will NEVER miss You know that feeling you get when you come home from a long vacation? Like it was really nice to be away but as soon as you walk through the door to your home, it was like you never left. Instant comfort. That is what reading about the Murray clan is like. If you have ever read any of my reviews before, you will notice that I am a hardcore thriller reader. I love the dark side of life and am not a big romance reader at all. Once in a while, sure, but not all the time. However, I will NEVER miss a new Hannah Howell book. Especially the Highland series and here’s why; it never changes. Each new release follows a very similar pattern to the ones before it and there are really no big surprises. It is perfect. I continue to read these books after years of following this series and each time I get that instant comfort of the familiar. Each time I get to fall into a new chapter of the biggest family I’ve ever met (seriously, they are everywhere!) and because the basic structure is pretty much the same I can just fall into this beautiful, historic world that Howell has created and lose myself there. Here’s what I expect when picking up a Highland book: (view spoiler)[1. The male protagonist is going to be a large, attractive member of the family. He may or may not be an Alpha but he will be incredibly jealous, protective and very surprised about it because he isn’t normally like that and it came out of nowhere 2. The female love interest will be stubborn. Sometimes in a subtle way and it will drive the male crazy at first (because women are not supposed to be like that in “Men are Kings and we listen to what they say” Scotland) and generally pretty mouthy. It won’t usually go over well at first but at the end, that’s what that Murray man loves about her. She is also probably a small and slight woman which he is surprised to find very attractive 3. The conflict will change. Someone will more than likely be running from someone trying to kill them. Usually over land and title. Sometimes over the woman. It’s ok though because the Murray clan sticks together and big, powerful forces will be coming to save the day. Plus they always have friends in high places 4. Every man in that family has a wife that is exactly the same and they all get along. There will be talk when they get together about how stubborn the women are and how they always put those men in their places but that’s why they married them. None of them just ran into each other at the market and locked eyes; there is a big story about how each couple met and each is pretty similar 5. Sexy time. It happens. Sometimes earlier on than you expect. Usually it comes on as a surprise and they “really shouldn’t be doing this but screw it and damn the consequences”. Everyone also knows about it. I mean, there is no privacy at all. You go to a room to get it on…everyone knows. You’re an unwed couple that just met and are stopping for a good night’s sleep and a hot meal at a family member’s along the way? Everyone knows what’s going down…even if it hasn’t happened yet. Women give “knowing looks” and the men give warnings and ask questions about intentions and marriage. She IS a respectable lady after all. If this lady has a brother or father kicking around, they are absolutely going to walk in shortly after a round has been finished. They were close by after all and, again, no privacy. There may be violence but it will more than likely end in a wedding. Groom will be happy about it because he decided he was going to marry her anyway. Bride will be embarrassed but thrilled that she got her man in the end. 6. Love words will be spoken. (hide spoiler)] Now not every book in the series is going to follow this pattern exactly but it gives a basic idea of what I’ve grown to expect and what I love about this series. Highland Devil, while sticking pretty closely to my well laid out plot points, surprised me a bit. Since this is the 22nd book in the series I feel that is something worth noting. There was a change here and I’m a little unsure of it. While the characters lived up to the standards I expect from a Hannah Howell book, I found the narration lacking. Although I normally find a good pace is being set, this book tended to both drag on and feel too rushed at times in certain areas. I felt that the main conflict surrounding Mora and Robert was well laid out and what I had expected but that Gybbon’s eventual involvement and how easily his people became involved in the situation was a little unbelievable and a bit naïve on everyone’s part if I’m being perfectly honest. While I still greatly enjoyed the book, I found I preferred following the character development more than I cared about how the situation would be resolved and that. I will say that I think Gybbon may be my new favorite Murray! I absolutely loved him. While he definitely isn’t a large Alpha character like a lot of his clansmen are, I thought he was just the sweetest guy. Again, a little naïve and too quick to trust but he is your typical boy next door type and I just loved reading about him. Mora was pretty much the same type of character although she was a little bit harder on the head. Still a stubborn pain in the ass and sort of irritating at times but I think the two are well matched and just all out adorable. My favorite in this book, though, and an absolute perfect touch has got to be Freya. I have a soft spot for her (as did everyone in this book…except Robert of course) and thought that her addition to this story was amazing. There really isn’t much that I didn’t like about Highland Devil other than the narration as I mentioned earlier. I don’t quite get the title based on how the book read but I can forgive that detail. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and still found it fairly quick to get through. The writing is just as amazing as it always is and I love falling into that thick Scottish brogue that Howell does so well. I look forward to many, many more stories from the Murray clan and will continue to keep the author who gave me a love for the Highlands on my insta-buy list.

    Gybbon, the good guy hero here, right from the get go, had Mora’s, the heroine, back unconditionally. He was kind, respectful, protective, and wanted to help her in any manner he could. Therefore, I’ll not really sure where the term wicked knight comes from in the synopsis or the devil reference in the title. I can only assume the latter must refer to the OTT evil villain who was after Mora and her wee younger brother. One thing Gybbon couldn’t seem to come to terms with for quite some time was c Gybbon, the good guy hero here, right from the get go, had Mora’s, the heroine, back unconditionally.

I can only assume the latter must refer to the OTT evil villain who was after Mora and her wee younger brother. One thing Gybbon couldn’t seem to come to terms with for quite some time was committing fully to Mora. Mostly it was his head that needed to catch up with his heart, because clearly he began to care for her but couldn’t say those three little words. It’s hard for this avid romantic at heart to root for a main couple when they aren’t 100% fighting for love themselves right from the get go. When they speak of parting like it is inevitable, it rankles my feather, folks. Of course, they were sweet together, and I knew somehow by the end things would work out. Though I enjoyed seeing these two eventually become a couple, they came across more as unplanned travel companions for a very long time. Their relationship and plot unfolded at a very slow, leisurely pace. In fact, for a majority of the book their romance felt like a subplot. I didn’t feel the heart melting, strong chemistry/passionate connection I expected. They were attracted to one another and "in like" but I didn't sense their love was so deep they couldn't have lived without each other. I found myself skimming over parts of it, especially the retelling/rehashing of conversations and events as more sub-characters were introduced and brought up to speed and told what was going on. At least the interactions among this large cast of characters were intriguing. Overall, I enjoyed this book but must admit it seemed to take forever to finish. I’m struggling here to pinpoint specifically why. As a big fan of slow burn romances, that certainly wasn’t the problem. I can only assume it was because of the very slow paced turn of events and the reluctant to commit aspect. At the end of the day, knucklehead Gybbon does finally give in and commits to making Mora his wife, but his doubts and the manner in which it happened weren’t overly romantic. A little too stereotypical set-up and shotgun wedding for my taste. Despite the fact, he finally was more than willing to be dragged to the altar. Romance Safety Gang: (view spoiler)[ Virgin heroine finally has sex with the hero, but they seem resigned to accepting they will walk away and lead different lives. She honestly did not know how he felt about her but gave herself to him anyway. This bothered me because he knew he was her first, but still didn’t seem inclined to marry her. Taking the virginity of a deceased Laird’s sister usually meant something back then, especially since he was a Laird himself. They seemed to become friends before lovers, btw. You won’t like near the end when he strips, crawls into her bed like he's entitled, all while wondering what he was going to do about his feelings for her. He sounds still very undecided. Just wants to think about it tomorrow.

    This was a very slow and mellow read for me, but that's not to say that I didn't enjoy it. The main characters were believable and endearing. I rather liked Gybbon and Mora. I liked the side characters too, and I'm sure that had I read any of the previous books I would have understood a lot more of what was going on. But I haven't, so I just went with what I was given and it didn't really affect this story I thought.

But I haven't, so I just went with what I was given and it didn't really affect this story I thought. I got a good chuckle here and there, but mostly I just enjoyed the interactions between Gybbon and Mora. And oh how I loved Mora's cat!! The bad guy was truly a bad guy and it was great to see him finally get his comeuppance at the end in the way he did. When Mora's parents were killed, it left her in charge of their land and her little brother. She has two older brothers, but since they left to fight in France they haven't been heard from. She planned on keeping up a simple life getting by on what her goats could provide, but that comes to a screeching halt when her cousins show up. And try to kill her and her brother. Mora is able to help her brother escape, but while she tries to flee she is wounded. Once she gets away, Mora stays hidden as best she can while fighting exhaustion and the pain. When she comes upon a stranger, she knows it's wrong, but she can't let the chance pass her by to steal his horse. Which fails spectacularly. But also succeeds in ways she never could have guessed. Gybbon travels around doing whatever he wants pretty much. After his horse throws Mora off, he's interested in her story and after hearing her out he decides that if the one who she was told to go to can't help her, his clan will. He's definitely a good man and knows how to get things done where Mora would have had no clue. Together they travel to allies seeking support and become closer. When Mora falls ill from her wound, Gybbon even manages to find her brother for her. Despite Gybbon not making any promises to Mora, she freely gives herself to him when she realizes the depth of her feelings for him. When things start to look up, Mora does something so incredibly stupid. I just wanted to bash her head in it was so fucking stupid! But I get it. It was done this way to get us to the ending that we were given. An ending that worked out really well and was good. I will say that I was extremely urked with Gybbon at the end when he was thinking about what he felt for Mora and thought about being with her but maybe not for long and also wanting to keep traveling about. I sat there thinking "Are you freaking kidding me?" There was just something about the way he acted that I simply didn't like at that point. Given the chance, I'm not sure how excited I would be to read more of this series. It was entertaining enough, and I liked it, but I think I have many other books that I would like more.

Can Gybbon keep her safe and will her mother's family help? I guess I don't have to tell you that there is an attraction between Gybbon and Mora. I like the way their relationship developed...it was very natural although there were times of tension between them of course. There is such a great cast of characters in this story! Mora and her family were raised in a loving house as was Gybbon, who has an extended family beyond the imagination. Sigimond, Mora's distant relative is fierce but can deny his wife nothing. The show stealer though has got to be Freya, Mora's little tiny cat with a personality bigger than she will ever be! I am a huge fan of the author's. She is the one who made me fall in love with the highlander. This book started off a bit slow for me but it didn't last long before I couldn't put it down. If you are a fan of the highlander and this era then this is a must read!

    When I started this book, I was completely lost. So i looked it up and found out this was book #22 in a series. wait, what?!? Book 22?!?! I'm not sure if this pulls characters from other books or not, I would assume it would have to. And I don't know if this book picks up where book 21 left off. However, if you are like me and reading book 22 without having read any others (I don't know why you would be doing this), the action in this book starts immediately. Bear with it.

Well, he was angry too....but mostly crazypants! The romance in this book is definitely a slow burn romance. I wasn't sure it was even going to happen at all. I was like...maybe books 1-22 are all just build up to a giant Murray family lovefest in book 23? But then it hit eventually. Honestly though it was a little wishy-washy and not very grand. The romance kinda disappointed me since I had waited most of the book for it. I did enjoy meeting all the different families and clans. The characters in the book were well done and I liked many of them. Freya was instantly my favorite character though. LOL. While I enjoyed this story once I got into it a bit more, as a romance novel, I don't think this book was for me. I'm sure there are are a ton of people that would love this though, so definitely check it out for yourself. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an unbiased honest review.

    Highland Devil? Not so much. I enjoyed the book but the romance was lacking for me. Mora is on the run from her murderous cousins who are determined to take over the small inheritance Mora’s family was given by their father, Mora’s uncle. She happens upon the hero Gybbon, who agrees to take her to safety. If you did not read this book as a ‘romance’ it would probably be more enjoyable. The first half read more like an adventure of one girl standing up to her relatives and making her way to safet Highland Devil? Not so much. I enjoyed the book but the romance was lacking for me.

Then all of a sudden, Gybbon climbs into her bed, after maybe one chaste kiss? It just didn’t feel fluent. In fact, when I was first reading and making my impressions of Mora, she seemed very young to me. Much too young and immature for Gybbon, who by the way, was no devil at all. (was he even the devil in the title?). My biggest problem with the book was how ho hum everyone was. For example, I’m on my way to my death, let’s talk about mundane facts while you fix my hair. Someone is coming to kill me, I think I will go alone and talk to them, no big deal at all. Oh no, someone has been kidnapped, should we go right away and save them, no, let’s wait until tomorrow! You see my point?? Several times I wanted to say ‘wake up people! Have some urgency here!’ But alas, there was never any. If you like your romances to have a sloooooow burn, and full of appropriate period dialogue, then this is the book for you! I received a copy of this book free from the publisher for my honest review, and this is it!

    Highland Devil by Hannah Howell is an interesting tale. One where family is set against its own. An evil cousin is set upon killing everyone to get what he wants. And no one has been able to stop him yet...even his own father won't stop him. That's when Mora and her younger brother, Andrew, flew for their lives.

Gybbon immediately seeks to help Mora and her brother against her evil cousin. But the fear, danger, and passion that sparks between keeps them at ends.  The suspense in this historical novel was intense. I was not sure what would have happened to Mora. Several times, I thought both she and Andrew would die. As for her older brothers...I did not see that unexpected twist happening. Fast-paced and brilliant, Hannah Howell plucked my curiosity and kept it. I would recommend this read. It was deeply engaging and emotionally fun to follow. Brave, funny, and strong men racing to help those in danger made my heart melt every time. Highland Devil is just as it sounded. A highland devil was detailed here. Running and finding out why the highland devil wanted the characters dead was a unique mystery. It appeared to be greed but I am still left with wondering if it was simply just because he was a mad man. Or was he?  I received this copy from the publisher. This is my voluntary review.

    Overall this was an enjoyable, relaxing read that gently balanced with some romance & action but not too heavy on either end. While there were some moments that Mora came off as surprisingly naive while at others quite bright & charming, she was a likable heroine you could root for.

The plot of the evil cousin out to kill just about everyone in his quest of greed is a little over the top but the ending and how things come to be resolved is satisfying (go good guys!). the book as an even read - nothing too exciting or too annoying, more just right for a few hours relaxation reading in the evening before bed. While not my favorite of the series, it was solid installment. arc courtesy of net galley in exchange for a fair/honest review.

Everyone wondered, would Gybbon permanently or temporarily give up wandering to settle down? Would his answer prove him to be a devil? Alas, dear reader while he pondered the matter Mora unwittingly walked into a trap and he had to set off to rescue her from certain death.

    Highland Devil is another wonderfully written Hannah Howell romance. This lovely addition to The Murrays saga grabbed my attention from the very first page. I'm such a sucker for a Hannah Howell book. They are such lovely stories that are always loaded with passion, witty humor, and an inevitable suspense. Who can resist a charming hero saving the day for his lady ? Gybbon was a wandering soul who wasn't sure if he wanted to settle down in one place ..... with just one woman for a lifetime.

Who can resist a charming hero saving the day for his lady ? Gybbon was a wandering soul who wasn't sure if he wanted to settle down in one place ..... with just one woman for a lifetime. But as are all of Hannah Howell's heroes he too soon had a new plan in mind. First, he must save Mora and her little brother from the madman bent on murder. So this story followed the usual plot as do most of this author's books. If it ain't broke then don't mess with sweet perfection. I loved this one just as much as the first Hannah Howell book that I read. I've read every book in this amazing series. They never fail to put a wistful smile on my face. Now that's an one click auto buy for sure. I am voluntarily reviewing a complimentary Netgalley copy of this lovely book.

    I didn't like this book at all. The time lines were inconsistent, there was a lot of repetition like the author couldn't figure out if she had said something already even though she had said it like three times before hand. Then, how can you get time lines wrong in editing? Jolene didn't recognize Andrew when he stayed in her house? A month (more? less? confusing timeline) before? Not to mention the 'letter' Mora wrote in jail mentioned Robert coming to gloat but she wrote the letter before hand I didn't like this book at all.

It's like, she mentioned constantly that they only visited occasionally and she just expected this Uncle she some what knows to listen to her and believe her immediately? Yeah right. Meh, I skimmed the last 20 or so pages. Nothing of importance happened and again TIME LINES.

This book did not have the heat that I am used to in her books. I didn't think they had much passion for each other. I am curious about the title as well since Gybbon is more hero as he is taking care of Mora than the devil the title proclaims him to be.

    This started out really good. I was hooked. Mora was trying to escape her nephews who came to kick her out of her home. She ends up on the run and with the help of Sir Gybbon Murray she finds the help she needs. I couldn't help but notice how this started to repeat themselves. Mora would go through something and then everything would be reiterated again by explaining it to someone. Almost, word for word. I didn't like that. The climax itself was kind of lackluster.

I have, I think, read one book in the Murray's series but I feel like there may be more stories in this one than I realized. I'm assuming a lot of side characters have already had their own stories. Had I known them, this may have been a little better of a read. So, this wasn't my favorite read.

    Disappointing. Disjointed. I'm used to to the authors style and ssdd patterns to her highland books. I don't expect plot twists but just an easy way to kill a couple hours. This wasn't even that. At times it was repitious and at other times scattered. Oh gee, the heroine decides to run off alone back to the Lions den after multiple people risked their lives to save her stupid self and, conveniently, all the menfolk, knowing there are bad guys hunting her, they wander off to look at real estate?

I hate stupid heroines. Also after how many books where the Murray clan has the highest regard for their women and honor, this Murray conveniently forgets that when bedding the heroine? Looks down his nose at the man who built multiple cottages for all his mistresses but "I haven't made up my mind about settling down yet" . Time to stop buying HH on autopilot. I know now why there was no free preview.

Running from certain death at her cousin's hands, she attempts to steal Gybbon Murray's horse. That is the beginning of their story, but by no means is it the end. Ms. Howell is one of my must read authors, fortunately she is quite prolific, so I am kept quite content reading. I received this eBook from NetGalley for an honest review.

    A good Murray Family story. Lots of cameos. Straightforward plot with an "insane from birth" villain and little intrigue. What confuses me the most is the lack of romantic build up and tension which is the trademark of the series and that the hero had no character whatsoever. I could barely remember his name by the end. I have no idea why the title is Highland devil. Usually the second word is a reference to something. The girl was okay but kind of dense.

I was really disappointed that Angela Dawe did not narrate this one since she did the other 20 some! The new lady did a good job though it just wasn't the same.

She must run away, and this is when she meets up with Gybbon. She’s trying to “borrow” his horse when she gets thrown. There’s things happening in this book that makes you laugh and cry.
