Originally posted on The Book NymphoGregor MacGregor, known as the most handsome man in Scotland, is the archer for Robert Bruce s Highland Guard, code name Arrow When he begins to notice changes in his precision, he takes leave to return home to figure out and resolve the problem Gregor also needs to determine what he s going to do with his ward, Caitrina Cate Kirkpatrick, who he rescued five years before This is one of my favorite series, primarily because of the historical aspects Unfortunate [...]

    2. 1 1 2 stars I got this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Wow, I hated this book I mean really hated it Catriona is sly and manipulative And incredibly childish Through most of the book she s trying to manipulate Gregor She tries to trick him into seeing her, trick him into kissing her, force him into sexual activities with her This is not at all attractive Seriously She decided before she s even seen him five times that she loves him And then proceeds to plow through his life, [...]

    3. Full Review I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.This is book nine in the Highland Guard series and it s a foregone conclusion I m going to do everything in my power to get my greedy little hands on the previous books I would also like to say, as someone who hasn t read the other books, the list of characters, who they were, and the foreword relaying the back story was very much welcomed Gregor Arro [...]

    4. 2.5 disappointing starsThis story started out great then fell flat for me Cate is a ward after witnessing her mother s murder Gregor is her guardian and the king s guardsmen Cate was an interesting heroine She has loved Gregor for as long as she has known him but he has always considered her a little sister who needs to be protected He has never considered the fact that she has romantic feelings for him Cate wants to prove to Gregor that she loves him and does ridiculous things to gain his atten [...]

    5. I am not as familiar with this author but Im a huge historical fiction reader Especially with strapping Highlanders on the front cover that promise a clash of wills, sword wielding, some dip into the pool of adventure, betrayal, a romantic liason, espionage, castle storming, and or other epic, clan fighting badassery Instead, I got two main characters that I didnt care for At all She seemed selfish and he was downright stupid Stubborness happened Silly behavior happened If youre going to be reck [...]

    6. before release dateWhen I saw this series the first time, I just couldn t believe the high ratings Not one of Ms McCarty s books were below 4 Now I understand why the premise of this story, the rich historical background, the smooth writing style, It s practically gold.So when I saw the ninth installment of Highland guard and that it was Arrow s story, I jumped put of my shoes I just fell in love with this series I can t get enough of the Highland guards I wish this never end August 28, 2014This [...]

    7. I love all the books in this series The writing is once again perfect, the historical descriptions and the romance blew me away We have one big misunderstanding that was a bit weak, but the resolution at the end was great I ve been wanting to read Arrow s story for a while and this was better than I had hoped Cate is also a great, strong heroine She has no problem going after what she wants and she can fight like a warrior I loved how her faith in Gregor makes him a better person in the end, and [...]

    8. Received an ARC from Netgalley for an honest review The Arrow by Monica McCarty is the 9th book in her Highland Guard series Having read all of the previous books in the series, I highly anticipated reading Gregor MacGregor s story Dubbed the most handsome man in Scotland, Gregor s skill with the bow is unparalleled and he is a highly valued member of Robert Bruce s elite Highland Guard in his quest to wrestle back control of Scotland from England and claim the crown of the King of Scotland Greg [...]

    9. 3.75 starsEnjoyed this enough, I just don t know how to rate this one I would have loved it if I didn t keep picturing the heroine Cate as a 15 year old scamp tomboy the entire time And I tried, really really tried but the visual in my head kept getting in the way of fulling connecting with the love story And the number of times Gregor has to remind himself she s a grown woman and how adorable and cute she is didn t really help I don t know I just couldn t get passed the way she s described as [...]

    10.

    11. 5 stars Wonderful story Loved this book How this author is able to leave me feeling as if I just lost my best friend whenever I finish one of her books, I ll never understand Monica McCarty never disappoints The plot, and dialogue is fantastic And the romance is hot, and steamy I loved the hero in this book, Gregor MacGregor Arrow I ve been in love with him since the first book in the series, and I ve anticipated this book so much since then, it felt surreal to have finally read his story The pi [...]

    12. The heroine ruined the book for me Now I don t think it s MM s strongest talent to write diverse male characters They re quite interchangeable most of the time I don t mind it that much, as I m usually fixated on heroines anyway Cate, though.I could have just strangled her.Again, the second star is for historical accuracy Which reminds me that I should do the same for The Hunter too, but I can t be bothered after reading The Rock

    20. We ve seen Monica McCarty s Highlander Guards fall one by one to that thing called love If you ve read any of the previous novels you get the gist of what to expect fighting, loving, action, drama, mysteries or secrets and a whole mess of things going down.In this book we get to see the most handsomest men in Scotland fall, and what a fall it isArrow definitely didn t have this in his sights.Cate has been Gregor MacGregors ward for five years every since he saved her after one of the worst event [...]

    21. Been waiting since Feb to get my hands on it and I devoured it It was soooo good.I love the heroine She has a good head on her shoulders and I just love that she doesn t slink away even if her pride or feelings are hurt She has a strong backbone.Ahhhh Gregor I was very disappointed in one particular scene of a book, but overall he was one of the main Phantom guys I ve been wanting to read about since the beginning of the series.I ve missed the Highlands So good to be back.

    22. Set in gloriously exciting Scottish history with Bruce methodically and relentlessly taking Scotland back from the English, but the romance feels formulaic Really, this could have been any of the McCarty Highland stories, the heroes and heroines are disconcertingly interchangeable, which is good if you want to know what you are getting, but disappointing otherwise 2 stars It was ok Received from the publisher via netgalley.

    23. This was an ARC given to me by Ballantine books in exchange for an honest review I love scottish Historical romance and have absolutly fallen in love with Monica McCarty s Highland guard series.I don t like to give the story away These are just my thoughts on this Beautifully written Romance Having read them all so far,each book means a new romance and adventure with one of the most elite soldiers or Phantoms of King Robert the Bruces famed and Revered Highland guards I have loved each mans stor [...]

    24. 4.5 5 D cid ment, les tomes se suivent et sont toujours aussi bons Il faut tout le talent d une auteur telle que Monica McCarty pour parvenir nous passionner et nous faire frissonner encore et encore au fil des opus qui composent cette immense fresque Le livre s ouvre sur un passage particuli rement difficile, violent, et, il faut bien le dire, assez terrifiant On est bien en temps de guerre et rien ni personne n est pargn , tous les moyens sont bons pour saccager les biens et les tres, et les a [...]

    25. The Arrow starts out with a tale telling scene of a young child as her world was attacked and killed with her the only sole survivor It was brutal, heart wrenching, and it immediately hooked me to the story I ve read Ms McCarty s McLeod s Skye a while back and enjoyed it but, The Arrow made a lasting impression on me.Gregor Arrow MacGregor is an Archer and a skilled warrior under Robert the Bruce Along with the rest of the Highland Guard, their ultimate goal is to fight for Scotland Gregor is kn [...]

    26. A wonderful addition to a brilliant series, The Arrow was a fantastic historical romance I really liked this book From the secrets, to the romance, to the flawless historical backdrop, this book was amazing Loved it Cate was a very strong heroine She went through a lot in her childhood, not the least of which was watching her mother die, yet she came out strong and intent on not only surviving, but thriving She was extremely determined when she set her mind to something and she was definitely a [...]

    27. 3.5 arrows starsI liked the story, but I disliked the couple So far, Highland Guard is one of my favorites medieval romance series and I loved every single book I just couldn t bring myself to like Gregor and Cate They were similarly not likable as Ewan and Janet from The Hunter great story but a bad couple Because of that, it was hard to rate this book The first part of the book I couldn t stand Cate s childish behavior FYI she s twenty and it s year 1300 something She is constantly trying to p [...]

    28. 4.5 stars I don t know how but this series just keeps getting better I wasn t sure if a story about a pretty boy warrior would be as captivating as it was, but i loved this story Cate, the heroine, is one of my favorites A tomboy with a heart of gold Ironic that Gregor fell for Cate who wasn t at first glance a beauty , but as her personality and character developed, it was obvious what Gregor saw in her Cate s heritage was interwoven throughout the story which could ve been its own novel.

    29. Received an ARC for reviewAnother great book in this series Loved it, but it did drag just a little bit in the middle Pretty boy Arrow finally got paired up, and with someone who saw than just a handsome face It was nice to see most the Guard again, esp Hawk and his snarky humor I love how Ms McCarty s epilogues are ten years in the future, so we can see their family but not mess with the telling of the next Guard member Now can we have Boyd Strikers bookease.

    30. Well, I love my highlanders no doubt about it Another great book in another great series There were a few times I wanted to smack Arrow, but I still loved him Caty was awesome too I loved it
