    About "Monica McCarty"

    1. Monica McCarty

      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

    4. Thoughts after My First RereadI have just finished my first reread of this book My initial rating stands It is a 3 star read for me I reread this book because most books I have read recently failed to capture me I was bored flipping through the pages The characters seemed unreal In this hour of need, I returned to Monica McCarty, who always captures human interactions in a way that I can relate to I picked up The Viper today for reread, thinking maybe a reread would change my original opinion I [...]

Story Rating 5 starsCharacter Rating 5 starsRomance Rating 5 starsHeat Level 3.5 starsOverall Rating 5 starsMonica McCarty does it again I just finished this book and I have chill s all over This story was a very emotional one that had me shedding tears often through out the story What amazed me most is that Monica wove this story around actual people and actual history Oh I m sure this book is not for everyone but it was just right for me.I very much look forwards to the next book in the Highla [...]


    6. The book that I ve been anticipating for the entire series Both Lachlan and Bella are such larger than life characters, Bella s fierce courage and Lachlan s bad boy and IDGAF persona now that their story comes to fruition, it makes quite the tale.The Viper opens with Bella McDuff heroically walking to her imprisonment, to be hung in an iron cage from the highest tower of Berwick Castle She dared to defy her husband and King Edward by crowning Robert Bruce, a historic privilege granted only to he [...]


    7. I very much enjoyed this and I think I may well have read it perhaps devoured is a better word much too fast.I d been looking forward to the story since the little teasers in The Ranger about Lachlan s feelings about Bella s fate We start the story with Bella facing her punishment incarceration in a very exposed cage atop a turret in a Scottish castle I actually felt physically appalled by this because it is based in truth This actually happened and I have lived in Scotland and it is cold and it [...]

    9. Monica McCarty is one of my favorite romance writers and I always know when I pick up one of her books that I ll feel better when I m finished.I love this scene I laughed hysterically as I read Viper hit Chief D Damn it, Viper, a familiar voice said from above What the hell did you hit him with Lachlan s stomach pitched forward Ah hell Hawk His cousin s grinning face peered down at him He winked At your service Lachlan started over toward the body moaning on the ground Who did I hit Chief He gro [...]



    10. Una muy buena entrega ste cuarto libro de la Guardia de los Highlanders De nuevo Monica McCarty me sorprende con lo buena escritora e investigadora que es me leo siempre y sin falta sus notas de autora, me chiflan.En ste cuarto libro toca la historia de Lachlan, el miembro de la Guardia m s vil, malvado y malhablado, tiene una fama atroz, se dice que mat a su esposa, y todo ello lo acompa a con una lengua viperina En contraposici n tenemos a Bella, condesa de Buchan, que como supimos en el prime [...]


    11. I love the way that Monica McCarty uses real people and events and then creates a new world to throw them into This entire Highland Guard series has been amazing It reminds me a bit of Virginia Henley, in the fact that the author stays as true to history as she can while writing fictional historical romance.Lachlan is the bad boy of the Highland Guard, the one who just doesn t seem to give a damn about anyone but himself We ve met him in previous books, namely The Chief, as he and Tor seem to bu [...]


    12. Lachlan Viper MacRuairi is barely tolerated by his fellow members of the Highland Guard because of his seeming indifference to anything but money for his service However, they highly respect his warrior skills, his snakelike stealth and ability to get in and out of situations He s extremely handsome but his sneer, surly personality and reputation keep most at a distance When he s assigned to get Bella MacDuff to Robert Bruce s coronation, it ends up being a life changing event for both of them I [...]


    13. I LOVED this book My favorite in the series so far I was so looking forward to reading Lachlan s story and was not disappointed We have a gorgeous warrior rebel, the bad boy of the Highland Guard, falling in love with a wonderfully strong heroine I loved Bella, how she goes to hell and back and comes out stronger and a better person at the end Lachlan is amazing throughout the book, even when he s trying to convince her and himself that he s a Viper I was very anxious to see these two together a [...]


    14. illekitap 201Monica McCarty nin yay nlanm son kitab n da okumu bulunuyorum Evet seri devam etmeyecek ve evet bu seriyi deli gibi sevsem de ne yaz k ki hasret kalaca z ama bu demek de il ki okumayacakt m Bu kad n n yar m kalaca n bilsem de serilerini okurum nk cidden s per yaz yor sko Muhaf z Alay , orijinal dilindeki ismi ise Highland Guard Serisi nin 4 kitab serinin en g vensiz oldu u izlenimi veren sessiz ama bir o kadar ne yapaca kestirilemeyen karakteri Lachlan MacRuairi yani nam diyar Y lan [...]


    15. My Synopsis Lachlan MacRuairi has been fighting for the last two years to get back to Isabella Bella MacDuff Bella and the family and friends of Robert the Bruce were captured during a mission that Lachlan was in charge of He was assigned to guide them to safety by Robert the Bruce After their capture the English kept them prisoner for the last two years Lachlan has blamed himself for failing to protect Bella and the rest of the group Bella and Bruce s younger sister have been punished the most [...]


    16. I just finished reading this book and it was just magic I give five stars VERY sparingly, but I thought this one deserved it as I couldn t put it down it had a totally amazing H and h, the story was fascinating and moved along at warp speed, I had that pain in the chest thing happening so many times in this book, and cried numerous times both in commiseration with the characters and in happiness On top of that it had a totally awesome epilogue, one of the best I ve ever read.This series is all t [...]


    17. It was a good read A bit long in parts but the underlying story was quite interesting.I like this one than the others in the series, probably because Bella stands up for herself than the other women did, that and there is to Lachlan than meets the eye Lachlan and Isabella make a fascinating couple with lots of fireworks from start to finish I seriously don t know which of these characters I liked better, Bella or Lachlan.I really enjoyed this book but I think it would have been nice to have a [...]


    18. Pffff je ne comprends pas J essaye Mais non, je n arrive pas accrocher.Assez peu de plaisir la lecture, un peu fastidieux L h ro ne est bien chiante, tr s m lo dramatique ok, elle n a pas le choix, son personnage a r ellement exist , et une vie franchement pas marrante Du coup, faire une romance sur ce terrain, bof J ai l impression que les histoires sont crites trop au s rieux, a ne me fait pas r ver Je prends note tout de m me de la qualit des recherches historiques de l auteur Elle a du deven [...]


    19. It seems like it took forever to read this, but I really loved it Bella s story is so heartbreaking, and even so much so when you stop to think what is described in this book is largely true I really appreciate all the research the author puts into this series



    20. 3.5 starsWhile slow to finish I enjoyed this book Wasn t a fav but great story But there were things that kept standing out for me Glaringly It s safe to say that there is a repetitive pattern that McCarty likes to use throughout most of her books I generally don t like books that are clone copy of each other in plot and action and dialogue only difference being the characters with seemingly similar characteristics I ve noticed this after reading a few of her books and have given her a pass but [...]



    21. Oh Monica, Monica, Monica Why I ve read all your other books series and have been waiting patiently for this book so I can read about the breathtaking Highland Guard I waited till midnight so I could download it Ended up being 3am my time so I scratched that idea Lachlan wasn t my favorite character from the previous books but I still couldn t wait to read his story and get to know his past along with revisiting my other favorite Guardsmen But why the language Yes, I understand he is supposed to [...]


    22. Wow The Viper by Monica McCarty is definitely the highlight of her Highlander special ops series so far To recap Robert the Bruce, war against King Edward, discord amongst Scottish nobles, indepences and LACHLAN MACRUARI UNF.There were many things I enjoyed about this book and the author s foreshadowing in the previous instalments certainly paid off Certain bits and pieces of the story were already hinted at, such as the unsuccessful rescue attempt and Lachlan s growing frustration with his fail [...]


    23. The Viper is definitely one of my favorite historical romance books The story was full of intrigue, betrayal, and lots of steamy scenes The Viper tells the story of Isbella MacDuff and Lachlan MacRuairi, aka Viper The beginning of the story is from Bella s point of view in captivity, but then takes us back to when Lachlan and Bella first meet and he s come to take her to Scone to crown Robert Bruce Bella is forced to leave her daughter behind which tears her apart She hates Lachlan for it but ca [...]


    24. This was a great book, I really enjoyed it A lot of people said this was one of the best books in the series I don t really have a favourite in this series so far but that doesn t mean I m not enjoying reading this series.The hero and heroine were great Lachlan is so misunderstood He s considered a snake with no morals who would do anything for money But it s so not true and that become blatantly clear over the course of this book He s actually really thoughtful and it warmed my heart at a lot o [...]


    25. I have to admit that when I started this series I thought the whole concept might be pretty cheesy It sounded like a Highlander Navy SEAL mashup that was just cashing in on two hot romance sub genres Boy was I wrong There are so many historical details, real life people, battles places that I ve taken to cheating and reading the author s note first because the research is so fascinating In this book the heroine is Bella MacDuff, a real life Scottish heroine who risked a great deal to crown Rober [...]


    26. Lachlan Viper MacRuari, an elite highland warrior in service to Robert the Bruce has gained his reputation and code name because he strikes with deadly stealth He s also known for a loyalty only to his purse which has made him coldly efficient and caustically indifferent to what moves the heart of most Betrayals so deep can often have long reaching ramifications, but Lachlan has honed his skill of detachment from anything in this life which would steer him away from his steel control of absolute [...]


    27. Angsty historical romance at its best The Viper reminded me why I fell in love Monica McCarty s take on dashing Highlander warriors I wasn t so impress with the other books in the series with the exception of The Chief , and I was delighted that The Viper has all the elements that I love in a historical romance it has just the right balance of angst and romance that keep me turning the pages I can only hope that the next one will be just as good if not better
