    1. My favorite of the series so far, by leaps and bounds! Colin MacGregor has captured my heart!I'm a sucker for a romance with kids involved, especially when a big, strong tough guy is laid low by a woman and her tiny kid. Colin MacGregor, the fierce and mighty warrior, spy for the English King, was certainly felled by Gillian and her son Edmond! As the story opens, we meet up with Colin again. (all character pics are from Paula's website) Last we knew of him, he had just joined King James English [...]

    2. 5 EXCELLENT STARS!!!I loved, loved, loved this book!!! It's by far my FAVORITE of the series thus far! Simply excellent!!!Review to come.

    3. Gilliand & Edmund has been hidden away in Dartmouth Castle I love this book! Absolutely love it!!! I will say this book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I love Colin. I love how Paula writes history in her books. It's wonderful. My GR friend, Carolyn loved him too! She says 'Paul is very good with her history and I, too, love how she weaves it into the story.' I second this! It's so sad to see the series end, but Paula promised that more MacGregors are coming and I can't wait for Highland Heirs series.I [...]

    4. 4.5! This may be my favorite book in this series so far. I love a romance where the relationship slowly develops from more than just lust, but also from respect, friendship, and admiration. This was that kind of romance.Both Colin and Lady Gillian had much to hide, and much at stake if their secrets are revealed. I normally don't like when the H/h keeps a lot of secrets from each other, but in this book it made perfect sense. I liked everything about the plot, and enjoyed each time more and more [...]

    5. This one was a bit of a slow build for me, but Colin and Gillian story totally won me over. It wasn't just their love story that sucked me into this book, but Colin's relationship with Edmond, Gillian's son. I swear I fell in love with Colin once he started interacting with the little boy.This has been a very enjoyable series!

    6. Win Conquered by a Highlander! Interview with Paula Quinn and giveaway thewindowseat13/pOk, to be honest, I sort of heaved a big aggravated sigh when I choose to review this book. I always loved all the old Julie Garwood Highlander novels, but have never since found a really dependable Highlander author. For the most part, many of the books start the same. Someone is a spy (either the hero or the heroine) and the other one is hiding a secret that the spy has to figure out. Once the spy is reveal [...]

    7. I received a free copy of this book from GoodReads' FirstReads program and this review is long overdue!I was really torn between 2 and 3 stars for this book, but settled on 2 because it really was just OK. Not terrible or awful, but not good or great either. In fairness, this is not my usual type of book and I'm sure there are many fans of Paula Quinn who would grant this 4 or 5 stars and I totally respect that, it's just really not really for me. I was hoping it would be and entered the FirstRe [...]

    8. Boy, I sure missed a good highlander romance book.“He would help her. He would be her champion. He was all she had left. His heart would let him do nothing else.”Colin MacGregor is a general in King James of England’s army. He is also a spy for the crown. Colin was sent to infiltrate the army of Earl of Essex, who was loyal to William of Orange. This fight was for power, and it also had religious undertones as William of Orange was a Protestant and King James was Catholic. Colin pretends t [...]

    9. I loved this book so much! It was a great ending for the series. I have been waiting for Colins story to unfold ever since first meeting him during " Ravished " , the first book of the series. Such a badass. I just knew that Ms. Quinn would save his story for the grand finale. Since the start of this series Colin has been devoted to the King. Dedicated to his cause. Maybe just a little blinded to the Kings faults? He has slowly become disillusioned with King James yet he remains loyal even after [...]

    10. There are two things that are important to Colin MacGregor: his clan and his job as an agent of the king. Both play a role in his latest mission. He must infiltrate the home of a traitor and uncover his plans. Geoffrey is part of conspiracy to help overthrow the pro-Catholic king to put a protestant sympathizer on the throne. Colin needs to find out who is aligning with Geoffrey and what the king needs to do secure his interests. After all, the MacGregors are Catholic and a protestant king would [...]

    11. Once again, Paula Quinn has conquered me with her books. The last installment of the Children of the Mist cemented its place in my heart rather quickly. Colin is our true hero, with his goals in mind and his path clear before him. Gillian is a strong, determined female trying to make the best of her situation for her son. Edmund is an adorable little boy and Gates is a real friend. Watching Colin slowly begin to fall for Gillian and Edmund is fascinating. His hell bent desire to focus on his war [...]

    12. 3 stars "graded on a curve"I was really looking forward (and sad) to reading the last book in the Children of the Mist series. I really enjoyed the others but, this one I really didn't care for the leads. The main characters Gillian & Colin were just ok. I didn't feel a real spark of romance between them and they seemed like they were forced together. The issue with Edmund (Gillian's son) in the book was a little trying and it got to be annoying towards the end of the book. He was cute, but [...]

    13. Not even ONE thing pissed me off about this book, and this is so rare that I don't know if it's ever happened beforeAUTIFULLY written characters. Not one freaking flaw in the writing. How much you like it or not will depend upon you personally, but there weren't any mistakes. No giant inconsistencies or overdone macho-ness or every other bullshit that every other book has. My favorite main characters were the hero: Colin, the heroin: Gillian, her protector: Gates, and her adorable son: Edmund. T [...]

    14. Omg the feels. I remember why I adore this Camlochlin seriesverse. Quinn is the mother of Highlander romance.Kinda disappointed that the King became villainousjust when I thought I'd finally found a series with a decent king, but no. People with power have a penchant for becoming stone cold murderers *sigh*But turning to nicer matters, what a darling Edmund is sooooo cute and cherub like.Ridiculously smug that Gillian got to stab the little coward of a cousin too.And Colin is such a sweetheart i [...]

    15. Another great book in the "Children of the Mist" series by Paula Quinn. Well done continuation of the Highland clan from Skye. I've been listening to this series via audio book and I highly recommend it. The dialogue and accents bring the story to life in a way that straight reading wouldn't be able to.If you are a fan of historical romance, you should pick this book/series up.Happy Readingenjoy!

    16. Conquered by a Highlander rating: 4 out of 5 starsChildren of the Mist series rating: 6 starsThough Conquered is part of a series, it reads as a stand alone story with fulfilling character appearances from previous books.How are the sex scenes? A couple descriptive ones, the rest are behind closed doors.How are the story lines? Great. Detailed and historically accurate with character appearances from previous novels.Would you read it again?I plan to read this entire series again. Summary Conquer [...]

    17. While reading this book I unintentionally kept comparing Monica McCarty's Highland Guard series to this book. Comparing the two series was actually not fair to either author. Although both series are about warring Highlanders this particular series is set some 300 years later than McCarty's. This book in particular, set in 1688, focuses on the characters more than the historic setting. For someone like me, who is more character driven, it should have been a home run. So why after several weeks o [...]

    18. This review also appears on my blog at thegoldenruleof666spoDelightful romance and endless thrillsConquered by a Highlander was sweet, suspenseful, and near perfect.First of all, I really admired Gillian. She was betrayed by the man she thought she loved and had a bastard child. Her father sent her to live with her creepy cousin as punishment. But, though it all, she was brave. She sacrificed her dignity daily to keep her son, Edmund, safe, she swallowed her pride constantly, and yet she was sti [...]

    19. This is the fourth in the Children of the Mist series. It's still late Restoration England, the latter part of James II/VII's reign. The king has recently edged past the line between monarch and tyrant. Colin MacGregor (this is the brother of Mairi from the last story) joined the royal guard in the last story. He is now something of a spy as well, but he's starting to have his doubts about his king. He's been sent to Dartmouth, to the keep of the Earl of Devon, who is believed to be in the thick [...]

    20. Beautiful Story that Melts the Heart!I'm In Awe as I think about this beautiful story. This is the second book I’ve read of Paula Quinn’s and I’m amazed at how her characters make you feel as if you've known them and lived in their world all your life – so down to earth, humorous bantering among-st each other, and their dedication to their families will sweep you away with sweet bliss. The MacGregor Highlanders is a clan full of fierce warriors for sure, but they are the most respectful, [...]

    21. You can find this review and more atForever Book Lover. I have been lucky enough to receive this book from the author, I have been anticipating Colin's story and I can tell you right off - it was AMAZING.This book is everything I love in a story intrigue, romance, suspense and of course, my brawny highlanders. I love strong willed heroines, those that can stand up for themselves among self centered egotistical overpowering men. Lady Gillian Dearly, is a single unwed mother and also the daughter [...]

    22. Colin MacGregor believes in the mission of his King. He goes deep undercover to infiltrate one of the enemy’s home. The goal is to gather information about Prince William’s plans to over throne King James. However, his plans are derailed when he spots Gillian Dearly and her young babe, Edmund. The two are not a part of the plan and normally Colin never rule with his heart but each day that he spends around them, he realizes that sometimes he can’t act according to the plan.Gillian is cast [...]

    23. 3.5 stars. This story just didn't work for me, though I was delusional about who the heroine was throughout much of the book. (I thought Gillian was Judith from the end of Mairi and Connor's book. The names sounded alike. I know it's idiotic) I felt like the story was incredibly restrained by the heroine's circumstances. Imprisoned by her family to live with a pervert psycho cousin, and completely entrenched in bringing down the king Collin serves, Gillian never grew on me. Her situation with he [...]

    24. I have been eagerly awaiting the return of the MacGregors since stumbling on the rest of the series late last year and finding the 3rd/5th (Tamed by a Highlander) to be one of the most emotionally moving books I've read. Paula Quinn did not reach the bar that she set with Tamed, but she came close.Colin MacGregor has spent the last three years of his life dedicated to the supporting King James' reign and dismantling opposition to the Catholic king's plans. He arrives at Dartmouth Castle to spy o [...]

    25. I may have said this before, but I love Paula Quinn and especially anything to do with the children of the mist. P.Quinn can do no wrong in my book. I hope there is a book for Will and Finn in the works (let me know if it is already in print somewhere). I have loved every last highlander and the women they love in every book that I have had the pleasure of reading so far. This is no different. I think this one is so good because I had a while to get to Colin before his story was told,so I was al [...]

    26. Again, another story I really wanted to love. Colin was a great hero. Trustworthy, loyal, strong, ambitious, fearless, and tender when needed. Gillian was strong as well. She was not beaten down by her male relatives who sought to do so at every opportunity. Their story was captivating and the double life Colin lead contributed to the excitement of the story. However, I found myself wishing for a conclusion at about the 75% mark. At that point, the story seemed to drag and I had to force myself [...]

    27. Again, great book. Here we see Colin MacGregor as the military man he wanted to be back in the second book. I really liked getting to know Colin in this book. Plus, the fact that Colin's love interest already has a child adds an extra dimension to the development of Colin and her's relationship.Nutshell review:• Gillian is an awesome protagonist! She's an awesome mom, and she's strong!• Colin + Gillian = <3• Colin + Edmund = <3 <3 <3 My heart just melted! They're growing attach [...]

    28. 4 stars!!Loved this one too!! Can't seem to get enough of Ms. Quinn's Highlanders :)Colin was painted to perfection! I think he had the strongest of wills (at least in my opinion). He held himself strong and kept his secrets guarded at the risk of losing his love.Loved his friendship with George and his tenderness towards Edmund and his thoughtfulness and love for GillianYet another book that keeps you craving more and moreWill be looking forward to reading the next one ;)

    29. Novel received courtesy of giveawayI absolutely LOVED this story and will be looking for all the others in the series. I've loved historical fiction for as long as I can remember and this was so well-researched and well-written that I couldn't put it down! The MacGregor clan and the English people of the time were written spot on. Such characters were written by an author with a true heart for the time. I can't wait to find the rest of the books!

    30. I have read all the Children of the Mist books, but by far this is my favorite. For me it was not so much the love story between Gillian and Colin, but Edmund and Colin. The love he has for this child just lept off the pages . Paula Quinn's books just keep sucking you in with their breathtaking beauty, thrilling danger, and captivating romance
