    About “Monica McCarty

    1. Monica McCarty says:

      What do you get when you mix a legal career, a baseball career, motherhood, and a love of history with a voracious reader In my case, a Historical Romance Author.Like most writers, I ve always loved to read Growing up in California there was always plenty to do outside, but all too often I could be found inside curled up with a book or two or three I started with the usual fare The Little House on the Prairie series, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, Watership Down, Nancy Drew, and everything by Judy Blume Once I cleared off my bookshelf, I started swiping books from my mom Some, like Sidney Sheldon s The Other Side of Midnight, probably weren t the most appropriate choice for a pre adolescent although they were definitely illuminating I can still remember the look of abject horror on my mom s Catholic girl face when I asked her what a virgin was After that rather brief conversation, she paid a little closer attention to what had disappeared off her book shelf, and steered me in the direction of Harlequin and Barbara Cartland romances I was hooked I quickly read through the inventory of the local library and was soon buying bags of romances at garage sales.In high school, with the encouragement of my father who I think was a little concerned about the steady diet of romances , I read over eighty of the Franklin Library s One Hundred Greatest Books ever written including Tolstoy, Confucius, Plato, and the entire works of Shakespeare Some of them were tough going for a teenager, but the experience would prove an invaluable foundation for college After reading War and Peace, I wasn t easily intimidated.For some reason Monica decided to go into writing and not fashion.After graduation, I loaded up the VW Jetta not Bus and trekked down I 5 to attend the University of Southern California, majoring in Political Science and minoring in English see why all that reading helped I joined the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, and when I wasn t studying or at football games, did my best to support the local bartending industry Ah, the good old days.With that kind of fun, four years of college wasn t quite enough So leaving Tommy Trojan behind, I traveled back up north to Palo Alto for three years of study at Stanford Law School Once I survived the stress of the first semester, law school proved to be one of the best times of my life garnering me a JD, life long friends, a husband, and an unexpectedly intimate knowledge of baseball See The Baseball Odyssey below.Law School was also where I fell in love with Scotland In my third year, I took a Comparative Legal History class, and wrote a paper on the Scottish Clan System and Feudalism So I immediately dropped out of law school and went on to write Scottish Historical Romances well no, not quite You see, I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer My father was a lawyer, I was a poet i.e not into math , and I love to argue It seemed natural.So I finished law school, got married, passed the CA bar, moved to Minnesota with a few stops along the way , waived into the MN bar, worked as a litigator for a few satisfying years, moved back to CA, had a couple of kids, realized that a legal career and being a single parent for most of the year due to husband s career would be extremely difficult, and THEN decided to sit down and write.And how did I end up writing romance It s not as divergent as it seems What I loved about being a lawyer are the same things I love about being a writer research and writing The only thing missing is the arguing, but that s what a husband and kids are for, right

    1. 4.5 starsIt's no secret that I love Monica McCarty's Highlanders, but it's a well deserved love. In fact I'd say Monica's Highlanders started me on the road to becoming the Highland Hussy. I will make this as spoiler-free as I can.For those of you who haven't read The Chief or The Hawk, this is a new take on our Highlanders, and a new take on Highland Warfare. Imagine "special ops in kilts." Now that we all have that lovely image in our minds, (I know I'm imagining a Navy SEAL in a kilt, and yum [...]

    2. It was great, I really liked it, but I just don't feel like writing a review for it now :)

    3. I'm having a hard time writing this review because I really did enjoy this story. It was well written, had great characters, good action, Lots of sexual tension. Monica sure knows how to write one heck of a kissing scene too. What I felt I missed in this book that Monica had written in the others was the heat factor. Those of you who know me know that I love my heat in a romance. The Ranger did have some heat but it was mainly sexual tension. It seemed to me that the H&H thought too much abo [...]

    4. Overall, another great highlander romance by Monica McCarty. It started a wee bit slow, but when it picked up I couldn't put it down. I have to say how much I love that this author always writes heroes and heroines who must move mountains in order to make the relationship work. There are no 'big misunderstandings' or silly obstacles to get around, they literally must triumph over true hardships to find their HEA. In 'The Ranger' not only are Arthur (Ranger) and Anna are on opposite sides of the [...]

    5. For me, this was the perfect book in the series, and I am pretty sure it will be hard to top it. The hero was exactly how I like them, a loner and misunderstood. I love love loved the heroine. She was beautiful, smart, canny, and very observant for an HR character. The plot was well developed. It was also a story that worked really well for McCarty's style of love stories. The doomed relationship and the longing and improbability of a happy ending was really convincing too. I applaud her for end [...]

    6. Şu anda “Hani bana, hani bana?” diyen serçe parmağın kıskançlıktan ağlayan cinsi oluyorum ben. 😒YOK MU ULAN BİZ DE BİR ARTHUR CHAMPELL?Umutla birinin üzerime hiç değilse MacRuair’yi atmasını bekleğim hasta yatağımdan sesleniyorum: OKUYUN BU SERİYİ! Arthur canını ona borçluydu. Ve içinde bir umut yeşermişti. “Hay, lanet olsun,” diye tiksintiyle homurdandı MacRuairi. “Sen de MacSorley gibi o aynı ebleh ifadeyle bakıyorsun. Vaktimiz yok böyle şeylere. D [...]

    7. Why I liked 'The Ranger'1. Truly enjoyed romance between Arthur and Anna2. Loved how Monica writes a story that full of history 3. There's no boring part in 'The Ranger'Recommended!

    8. I’m so thoroughly enjoying this Highland “black ops” series that Monica McCarty has created. She’s taken actual events in history and integrated her idea of the elite and dangerous fighters needed during some of Scotland’s blackest days, giving each hero a military or superhero “power” to make him a mean, lean fighting machine. On top of that, Ms. McCarty has taken her stories to the next level, twisting the lives of the hero and heroine in such a way that the emotion is wrung out [...]

    9. Gah! I have rewritten this review like 3 times and I can't make my thoughts order! So this is gonna be a bit messyThe Ranger is the 3rd book in Monica McCarty's Highland Guard series, and revolves around Arthur Campbell, aka "Ranger", who is the best of the best when it comes to scouting and evaluating the enemy, and being a spy on the English by infiltrating their ranks. The lead man he is spying on also happens to the man who killed his father while his back was turned, and stole his family's [...]

    10. Monica McCarty'nin bu serisini gerçekten seviyorum. Kitabın, konunun, o konuyu işleyişinin güzelliği bir yana, kadının araştırmalarını okumak öyle keyifli ki. Tam kitabın son satırlarını okuyorsunuz, içiniz bir kitabı daha bitirmiş olmanın huzuruyla dolmuşken, teşekkür ya da yazar notu için sayfayı çeviriyorsunuz ve yazar notunda size anlatılanlar kitap kadar dikkat çekici. Kitapta olanlardan ne kadarının gerçeğe dayandığını, hangi kısımları yüzünden akl [...]

    11. Great characters, ok plots. Arthur's character is a bit fuzzy though toward the end. Way too much war. Hopeless love never goes out of style. I do feel that the book missed the mark, so I can't give it 5 stars. But really really touching relationship and great characters. I continue to be amazed at the characters in the series and how they are woven together. Really impressive imagination.

    12. Third book in McCarty's Highlander Guard series. This one is centered on Arthur "Ranger" Campbell, one of Bruce's secrete Guard members who infiltrates enemy ground to get revenge on his father's killer John Lorn chief of MacDougall clan. What he doesn't expect is Lorn's daughter Anna MacDougall, the sweet-natured warm hearted innocent girl who distracts him and intrigues him more than he would like to admit. Things get very complicated and a tangled mess when he and Anna grow closer together an [...]

    13. illekitap/2017Veee Monica McCarty severler gelsinnn diyemeyeceğim ama yine de gelsinler :) Her ne kadar Koridor Yayınları bu serinin devamını getirmeyecek olsa da çıkmış olan 4 kitabını okumamazlık yapamazdım çünkü kadının kalemine bayılıyorum. Monica McCarty'nin kitaplarındaki diğerlerinden ayıran en büyük özelliği geçmişte yaşanmış olan olayları biraz kurgusal hale getirip okurun önüne sunması. Evet biraz tarih kokuyor olsa da kitaplara aşkı öyle bir işl [...]

    14. Kral muhafızları serisinin 3. kitabını da bitirmiş oldum. Kitap, İzci lakabına sahip Arthur Campbell ile düşman klanın kızı Leydi Anna MacDougall arasındaki hikayeyi anlatıyor.Anna'nın babası, 14 sene önce Arthur'un babasını öldürmüştür, sırtından hançerlemiştir. Bu olaya tek şahit Arthur'dur ve o günden beri bu adamdan intikam almak için gün saymaktadır.Hikaye güzeldi. Hele bu türün kraliçesi yazdıysa okumak daha da keyifliydi. Ancak Kitap bana gereksiz yer [...]

    15. 2 ½ stars. It’s ok but I couldn’t get excited about it. Nothing special about the plot or characters. I skimmed a few partsORY BRIEF:During battle Arthur’s father could have killed Lorn but allowed Lorn to live if he surrendered. The fighting was over, the father turned his back, then Lorn stabbed and killed him. Arthur was a boy when he saw this. He vowed to kill Lorn for revenge.It is now years later. Arthur is one of the Highland Guard, a group of special warriors serving King Bruce. M [...]

    16. 4.5 starsThis 'special ops Highlander' series is getting better and better as it progresses. By taking actual events from Scottish history and integrating them into her characters, she ups the stakes and manages to make this series even more addicting.The Ranger is Arthur Campbell's story. He has been the dark horse in the series so far, so I was glad to learn some more about him.Arthur "Ranger" Campbell has spent his years since his pretend-ouster from the rest of the Guard as a spy amidst the [...]

    17. Arthur Campbell, known as Ranger within the Highland Guard, has secretly maintained his membership within this elite force for the past two years, spying on King Edward's forces while pretending to be one of them. He's now conflicted about it as his current target's daughter, Anna MacDougall, is seriously testing the limits of his deception. He's seeking revenge against her father but is drawn to this enchanting woman. I really liked both characters and was looking forward to Arthur's story sin [...]

    18. I'm enjoying but I'm not at the point where I'm loving this series so ,much that I basically devour all the book and can't get enough. But don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying it and I did enjoy this book more.Maybe it's because I'm starting to get the hang of it but there are times when I still get confused with all the characters mentioned and how they tie into the storyline because every one is somehow connected to someone else! One person seems to be someone's brother, someone's daughter, [...]

    19. This is a quiet little history-driven romance that is a departure from the more common character driven historical romances where a Scottish setting is more like window dressing for a front-and-center relationship. Here, the real story is the Highland Guard--think Navy SEALS meets kilts and swords, and Ranger's double life. Arthur "Ranger" Campbell spends most of the book fighting very hard against any attraction to Anna, and it's not until the 2/3 mark that the relationship starts to really dev [...]

    20. Oh I loved this one. Arthur was a great hero, with integrity and honour although he had to do a lot he found disgraceful, he never wavered in his loyalty. Anna was intelligent and resourceful and very loyal to her family. Nevertheless sometimes she seemed quite young.i liked the plot in this better than in the second book (where, to be honest, there is not much of a plot). The pacing of this was very well doneI would have loved to see more if the others but at least we got some glimpses and I ad [...]

    21. I liked this one a lot. Arthur "Ranger" Campbell is one angst guy. He's torn between his loyalty to Robert Bruce and his love for an enemy's daughter. And what Monica McCarty gives us a a wonderfully angsty story that is full of love and the desire to protect that love. I'm looking forward to the next one.

    22. Me ha encantado como todos los leidos de la saga Arthur me parece un personaje que se debate entre el amor y el odio y que siempre ha querido tener un perfil bajo por sus habilidades y piensa que su vida es estar solo hasta que descubre a Anna y lucha contra lo que siente por ellacomendable 100% como toda la saga!!!!

    23. I just love this series and I think that "The Ranger" is my favourite so far. I love how Monica McCarty weaves a tale of romance and history together in a way that I just want to read from the first page to the last without taking a breath. I can't wait for the next instalment.

    24. 5 +++ stars!! Doesn't get better than this! The series gets better with every book. Easily one of my favorite historical scottish/highlander novels.

    25. Out of first three books, this one was my favourite. Maybe because Arthur was so broken since family didn't accept his special abilities I wanted to give him a hug or two sometimes.
