C Highland Crown by May McGoldrick April 30, 2019 · St. Martin’s Paperbacks Historical: European Highland Crown by May McGoldrick is the first book in a Scottish historical series, and despite the absence of a time-travel element, it feels extremely Outlander-y. The book features a doctor heroine, an outlaw hero, and both are on the run from a very bad English solider. Sound familiar? The book is a lot of fun and it’s got almost non-stop action that makes it easy to read in a single sitting.

The Savior is about Murhder, a vampire and ex-member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood turned recluse due to insanity. Murhder has been hiding away for twenty years until visions of his soulmate, Dr. Sarah Watkins, tempt him out of his exile. The problem is, Murhder and Sarah don’t actually meet until page 157 of the book, which is a full third of the way in. Their story is bookended by drama between a past couple (from the 8th book Lover Mine) Xhex and John; so unless you already care about Xhex and John, which I didn’t, it feels like…
