Jul 15, MelissaB rated it really liked it Shelves: The conclusion of the story begun in Kilgannon. Alex is tried for treason in England and Mary does everything she can to save him. Good ending to the story, I was glad they finally had a child. I enjoyed these books, they were very well written. The time period and setting came to life in the pages. I also enjoyed Alex and Mary’s romance. Apr 05, Allison G rated it really liked it.
This second book, the sequel to Kilgannon, was much better than the first. I have decided to view the first book as “setting the scene” and providing the background for the second book. In actuality, the two books should have been combined into one; however, most people will not read books that are pages long.
I, on the other hand, do not mind at all if the story is riveting enough to hold my attention. While there still was not much history as far as battles, the story line was much more dev This second book, the sequel to Kilgannon, was much better than the first. While there still was not much history as far as battles, the story line was much more developed and not as trite as the first book.
Most of the book dealt with the aftermath of the failed ’15 Jacobite uprising. However, the ending made it seem as though there should be another book, a continuation of Mary and Alex’s saga. Oct 11, Mary rated it it was ok Shelves: Alexander, against his wife’s wishes and his own judgement joins the Jacobites and fights against King George’s army in the First Jacobite Rebellion. Alexander gives himself up to the British army in exchange for his clan’s safety.
Will Mary be able to rescue him before it’s too late? Given that Alex is imprisoned and the story is told from Mary’s perspective, you would expect that she would be filled with terror and distressed by her own helplessness, and maybe she was, but I never felt that in the story, unfortunately.
There were several scenes where she thought about how it was the last time she would see her husband, but there was very little emotional impact and because of the repetition, I started to get bored. In the end, I think this would have been stronger had it been cut down to several important scenes and included at the end of Kilgannon.

Jun 05, Kathy VanStaalduinen rated it it was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed this series and was sad when it ended. A third one is totally doable and I hope Kathleen will consider it!
Jan 12, E rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Swept along for the ride and lived it with them! I’ve just finished this book and the one before it in two days with a toddler under foot, I simply could not put it down. Firstly let me say it was worth the investment both in time and money. If Kathleen Givens decides to write a third book in this story I will be buying it without hesitation.
And while it’s not entirely a cliff hanger ending, she leaves you with enough questions to allow for a third follow on novel, so I’m hopeful. Her style of wr Swept along for the ride and lived it with them! Her style of writing is detailed and full of emotion. The characters are strong and their passions high. Motives are clear and relatable, even the uncomfortable ones at times.
Villains and hero’s are well developed and believable.
The historical setting is thoroughly researched and blended seamlessly with the physical environment and the landscape. I felt like I could smell the wild Kilgannon roses and feel the sting of salt air on my face. A lot happens in this book as its story starts half way through the saga.
The Wild Rose of Kilgannon (Kilgannon, #2) by Kathleen Givens
I felt the start of the first book was a bit slow but appreciated it by the end of this one. A few times I felt slightly annoyed by yet another thing going wrong because Kathleen writes so well I was feeling everything the characters felt and it was a bit hard to catch a breath at times. However this goes closer to reality than many historical novels manage and the payoff is worth it. No simpering females or arrogant hero’s here, but rather gritty humanity in all its dubious glory.
If you’ve got some time and some tissues you’ll be taken back in time to a world that’s so far from our own yet not so different after all.
El Rincon del Romanticismo: Kathleen Givens – Serie Kilgannon
Best book two books I’ve read in a while! Apr 24, Stevie rated it liked it. I would like to give it 3. Character development was well done, and the story moved at a good pace. The story was very enjoyable and if I hadn’t read some of the reviews that should have been marked with spoilers but weren’t, I think the would have had more intensity and more of the intended cliff-hanger effect.
I had picked this book because it was on a list of best highlander romanced along with The Pride of Lions by Canham.
It just missed for me.
The Wild Rose of Kilgannon
Many of the I would like to give it 3. Many of the scenes were highly emotional, but I expected Mary to finally rise to the occasion, but never did, even though it mentions her trying to control her temper again and again, she never let loose and let some of the characters have it.
I understand the time period and how women were, but I still think she should have at least put them in their place instead of bursting ,ilgannon tears at every turn of events.
Alex was a great character but I was slightly bothered by his insecurities with Mary’s devotion. All that said, it was a good book, but not one I am going to recommend with the same enthusiasm I would for Canham’s or Gabaldon’s. Definitely not on that level.
I would love to find another one of those. Jul 22, Mirah W rated it really salavje it. I have heard the Voyager series by Diana Gabladon is better than the Kilgannon series.
I guess since I haven’t read the Voyager series I wasn’t making comparisons throughout and I enjoyed it. I thought it was a decent sequel to Kilgannon The characters in this book are great I really like the supporting characters, especially Matthew.
Jul 22, Becky rated it liked it Shelves: I really like the main characters, Mary and Alex, and so I could forgive the fact that in this book a lot happened while at the kilvannon time nothing happened. We had the same parting scene over and over. We had various men making propositions of the married Mary. We had to pick up and move the family multiple times under dangerous circumstances.
And then, while the story came to an end, we were clear that the troubles were not over.
