“Sloan McBride’s Highland Stone takes a strong and confident modern woman, flings her through time to tangle with a brawny and stubborn Highland warrior, and gives readers a wee bit of fun along the way.”

“Dangerous Heat is a wonderfully real and readable story; if the coffee shop had not closed, I would have easily devoured the entire book in one sitting…Even the Storm family’s empathic powers were subtly believable—one or two notches above gut feeling or woman’s intuition. Dangerous Heat gets four tombstones for dipping me easily into the character’s lives. I could not stop turning pages and went beyond feeling like I knew these people—I felt I could easily be these people.” ~Marie – Bitten by Books
