    I did not like this. I like historical erotica, but this was not up to par for me. It was too short and not satisfying for me. The story took a turn for the worse. I will try book two to see if it is better. Hopefully it will.

    A hot quick read.This was a hot and steamy read. Heather started out a good girl and ended as a bad bad girl. She will do whatever she can to help her laird feed his lust filled ways. Even awakening feels and lust in her. laird John has urgency to spank young lasses bottoms until they are red with lines but he does have a gentle side too. Will John and Heather find a common ground before he takes her virginity or will she just be a harlot.

    Shame, shame, shame......that's what John needs in order to fully enjoy carnal pleasures. He needs a woman to be "more naked than naked." How do you achieve that? Why, you shame her of course...by any means necessary. I absolutely LOVED this erotic romance novella! It's extremely well written, with wonderfully developed characters, and a fully developed storyline. Just be aware that this is a continuing series, consequently, while the book doesn't exactly end on a cliffhanger, there is no conventional HEA. There is more to the story...hopefully not too much more as I'd like to see John and Heather get their HEA soon.In any event, when John orders Heather's father to be hung, she offers to sacrifice herself in his stead. John decides that he will take Heather's virtue to shame her father, in lieu of killing the man. Really, at the beginning of the story I just knew I was going to hate John. I figured "I'll hate the guy, but hopefully the story will have some hot sex." LOL Boy was I wrong!! Not about the hot sex, because there is that, but about hating John. How quickly I came to love him. How does an author turn a seemingly heartless, cold, unfeeling, perverted bastard into a knight in shining armor? Well, you'll have to read the story to find out. But know this, this story is not for the feint of heart. John has some unusual needs in the bedchamber. He needs to dominate, demean, and manhandle his bed partners. Having these desires fulfilled is what enables him to function under the pressures he endures as Laird. Unfortunately Heather is an innocent, so despite his desire for her, John is determined to protect her from his unseemly desires. Heather, however, has her own ideas, and is just as determined to be the one to give John what he needs.The story has a BDSM aspect that will probably develop as the story continues. There is the use of a belt, as well as crude and vulgar language. Surprisingly there is a real story here, (I say surprisingly because so many erotic novels are all sex and no story) in addition to the hot sex. If you're looking for a story full of sex; however, this isn't it. There are a couple of sensual scenes, but only one real sex scene, which is scorching. FYI, this is not a non-consensual erotic romance--I hate those. Heather is very much on board with what John wants in the bedroom, in spite of his warnings to her to steer clear of him! Happy reading!OMG! I just realized I forgot to mention that this story is told in the first person from Heather's POV!!! I *hate* books written in the first person, and typically avoid reading any books that employ that technique. Usually when I see the word "I" in the narrative, I get grumpy and my expectations for the books takes a serious nose dive. I will admit; however, that there have been a rare few times when I've read books told in the first person, and really enjoyed them. Nonetheless, when I started reading this book, and realized that Heather was telling the story, I can honestly say that it hardly registered. I'm actually astounded by that fact! The author does an excellent job of keeping the reader informed of what's going on in John's head, even though we're not privy to his inner thoughts and feelings. IMO, the lack of insight from a key character is the chief drawback to first person account stories, and the main reason that I personally do not like them. I guess I was so taken up with this story that I completely forgot to mention it. Wow!

    DELIGHTFULLY WICKED !!!Wow! The Highlander's Harlot is the first book in the Sword and Thistle series by Laurel Adams and I absolutely love it! Adams has dazzled her readers yet again with her amazing talent, incredible imagination and unique style. This story just reached out and grabbed me from the get go and refused to let me go until I read the very last word. I completely fell under the spell created by the magic and fantasy of Adam's skilled storytelling. The story is exciting, thrilling, compelling, enthralling, powerful, enticing, romantic, arousing, sensual and steamy. The dialog is smart and very well written. The characters are captivating, fascinating, engaging, dark and sexy. One of the things I love most about Adam's writing, is her ability to gain empathy for her characters from her readers. You become totally immersed in the story and the lives of the characters. It makes reading the book a much more pleasurable and personal experience. Laird John Macrae is chief of his clan. It is he who will determine the fate of Heather's father after he was caught cheating his Laird-again. Heather is devastated when the Laird announces that her father is to be hanged. She knows she must do something to save her father but they are mere crofters-poor tenant farmers. She has nothing to offer in exchange for her request of mercy for her father other than her fealty, her body and her virginity. And surprisingly, the Laird Macrae is all too willing and eager to accept her offer. But now that he has her, what will he do with her? Or should I say, what will he do to her? Oh my goodness! The sexy Laird is not only dominant, he's a Dom! Huh? He doesn't completely understand his dark sexual needs and desires but he does know that he desperately desires the lovely lass Heather with her long dark hair, gorgeous violet eyes and very luscious curves, and he definitely wants to do more than just shame her and make her a whore. He just may want to claim her as his. And the lovely Heather just may want him to do all that he threatens and more-much, much more! Fantastic entertainment and an awesome read!

    I've never read of a Highlander Laird like this one.I expected the usual falling madly in love and fighting both the girl and the enemy before finally winning the girl. Instead I find a girl who has to give herself to save a family member. Her laird whom she thought as kind and good but finds him to be terrifying and cruel by planning to make her is whore. But are things really as it seems; will his cruel use of her make it impossible for her to be anything but the town harlot when he's through with her.Read it and see.

    DifferentThis is a story of a young woman, Heather, who at the beginning of the book helps her laird with a cut to his head and then skips to the next time she encounters the laird he is about to hang her father for hiding part of his earnings. Instead of hanging her father she pleads for mercy. So the laird takes her to be his horse. Or so he says. Turns out he is into S&M acts. The book has erotic scenes so if that isn't to your aste the book isn't for you. It's also rather short.

    5 stars from me!I loved this novella!This was a nice blend of historical erotica with a bdsm theme.It was a novella so the plot is fairly simple and the pace rather quick.... But personally it had many components that I adore:HistoricalEroticaHighlanders/lairds/kilts/castles... Tension/angst/passion.... Real feelings between characters.Short book great for a reading challenge!!

    I enjoyed reading this well written, erotic story. Not at all what I expected, and pleasantly surprised. This story held a little different view on how Medieval Lairds ruled their clans. If you enjoy erotic stories, I recommend reading this one. I have now read 3 in the series, and enjoyed them all.

    This was a promising book - I thought it would be a modern version of Beauty & the Beast, she agrees to go with the mean laird to save her father from being killed for not paying taxes. Ok so far. But then he gets her back to the castle and not only does he have sex with her, it's S&M and she likes it. EW.This is the first in a series, but I will NOT be reading these.

    It was kind of a Highlander BDSM Erotica. I liked it. I wish it had been a little longer. It ends on a happy note, but didn't feel complete. They have too many obstacles to overcome to reach a real HEA. I would read it again.

    Learning to for gaveVery excellent story about a woman who gave up her maiden hood but she find love with this highlander. Laurel Adams has done a excellent job on this story that is why I gave this rate because of the story.

    Needs to be longerThis wasn't as hot as the disclaimer. It was a good story. The Laird had a reputation for being rough and Heather decides she will do anything for him. It needed to be longer or maybe the 2nd book will have the "more" I want.

    Not a bad story and it left me wanting to read the next book in this trilogy. There were a few grammar/spelling errors in the kindle edition, but not enough to stop me reading.
