Elizabeth St. Claire has always been hard to please. Dreaming solely of Highlander men her whole life, no prancing London Lord can stand a chance at winning her heart...
… But perhaps a Scotsman can.
Elizabeth watches intrigued as the Highlander of her dreams, a Scotsman named Hamish Robb, arrives to oversee her season at the behest of her cousin, the Duke of Caithness. Elizabeth doesn’t hide her feelings for the striking Scot. But Hamish, determined to obey his order to protect the St. Claire sisters, steadfastly rejects her every seducing lure.
Believing that the debutante Elizabeth deserves a better, wealthier man, Hamish continues to turn away from her affection, even though he doesn’t exactly want to. Can this Highlander Scot resist the tempting seductress’ attempts to win his heart?

When the Duke of Caithness is charged with finding husbands for his cousins, the St. Claire sisters, matters at home prevent him from personally supervising their season. Hamish Robb and Ranald Gunn, Baron of Bower are sent to protect and find suitable matches for the Duke’s cousins. Upon their arrival the two Highlanders are seen by society as savage novelties even while the St. Claire’s find them a refreshing change from the marriage mart they have been thrust into. With a thousand reasons not to get let attraction take over it only takes one reason to take a chance at love and throw the rest out the window.
Sabrina York brings laughter and high jinks to the highlands and the parlors of the ton even as she manages to squeeze in a just the right amount of angst in The Highlander Is All That. Full of her astute wit and clever plotting tactics this story was fun with no shortage of excitement. With a nice mix of past updates and new happenings, this book felt fluid with the series. While this story started off with exploring the attraction of Elizabeth St. Claire and Highlander Hamish Robb it quickly became apparent that this work was about all four of the St Claire sisters achieving their happily ever after. As each sister fell prey to their hearts desire it was not without some serious obstacles and quite a bit of miscommunication!
The two relationships that were the most developed in this book were those of Elizabeth St. Claire and Hamish Robb and Anne St. Claire and Ranald Gunn, Baron of Bower. Holy sexy Highlander and make that a double these heroes may have been vastly different temperament wise but definitely were equals in allure. Elizabeth and Anne, like their love interest, were charming contrast and showed off this writer’s skill at spotlighting very different portrayals in the same work without overshadowing each other. The romances of the two younger sisters, Mary and Victoria, while they were less of a focus were no less enchanting and were integral to carrying out the plot of this book to its happy conclusion. Secondary characters flourished in this story as this author always does a great job of giving them their due. Ms. York’s inclusion of intimate interactions among the players in this work added a nice touch of familiarity that allowed readers to feel part of the story and close to its characters. With great additions such as The Highlander Is All That to Sabrina York’s wonderfully entertaining Untamed Highlander’s series there is no doubt that as the series grows so will readers love for it!
*While this book can be read as a stand-alone, readers overall experience would be enhanced by reading the previous books in the series.*
