    One thought on “Duet”

    1. When words run out, there's only this. 18th century Scotland, fighting off the ruins of rebellionA castle with four boys desperately in need of a teacherA bitter Laird loathing the English ways and set to defend what's hisA red-haired English violinist scared to loveTwo souls colliding Enemies meant to be loversMusic uniting what's always been theirs A tragedy as old as timeAnd centuries to waitHeartbreak, sorrow, tears of pain And TEARS OF FUCKING JOY It doesn't matter what you believe. You wil [...]

    2. BMB Reviews June Author of the MonthAye these highlanders are a melt worthy bunch, no?4.5 HEARTS--Forever. A love that literally lasts forever.How to fully describe Duet by Eden Winters? Beats the heck out of me. It's Highlander historical/paranormal/contemporary/ghosts/with a smidge of light time-travel? Heh. Say that ten times fast. It is two stories with a common bond, intertwined to make nearly seamless music that is the novel named "Duet".Warning: There is character death. But there is a HE [...]

    3. 4.5 StarsThis review is going to be short, but, damn, Duet kind of shredded me. In a totally good way. I loved watching Malcolm and Aillil go from enemies, to lovers even as the story took a turn that broke my heart and made me ugly cry. Then we get a couple time jumps before the story hits modern times when our MC's are finally reunited. When Malcolm and Aillil got their happy, I might have cried some more. Allegedly. Maybe.

    4. Excellent m/m romance that's a bit challenging for me to categorize. The first half takes place in the Scottish Highlands 200 years ago and the second half takes place in the present day. This is a story about an English tutor/violinist and about a Scottish heir who despises the English. It's the story about a love that transcends the ages. Oh, whatever - it's just a darn good love story. :)

    5. I couldn`t stop reading. I was smiling,crying and getting goosebumps.Duet is an amazing romantic-mystery. - Highly recommended!

    6. If I have to summarize this novel in three words, they would be: cute, short and neat. It’s a lovely combination, like mixing chocolate, ice cream and a stick! Not my favorite, though. I’m the Häagen-Dazs caramel type, Bradley Cooper’s. But I won’t say “No” to a Magnum, if you ask me.This book is one of the most TENDER stories I’ve read lately.And I’m not into kilts. Apart from Jamie Fraser, I can count with the fingers of one hand the romances with highlanders I have ever read. [...]

    7. Ahhhsssss. This was so f'ing lovelyuntil it started leaking like a sieve with bionic speed.ter the first half. Descending downhill after the speedy-anticlimactic sex moment. Followed by some monumental deaths glossed over, eternal love spell inductions, spirits-on-ice-in-the-afterlife, ghostly wanderings, paranormal encounters/activity, reincarnations, time jumps, astral dreaming, etc. Someone needed to take away this person's writing utensils before operation-throw-in-everything-but-the-f'ing-k [...]

    8. OH MY GOD I LOVED THIS!!This is my first Eden Winters book and I will not be my last! I read this because it had highlanders, I love me a man in a kilt, the accent, castles, the romance, etc. *sigh* This story is a historical, contemporary, tear-jerker, paranormal and a 5 alarm tissue alert! What makes all of this work of course if the superb writing, I could kick myself for waiting so long to read one of this authors books. Malcolm Byerly is teacher and violinist in England, 1758. He lives in f [...]

    9. Oh! This was soooooo good! I started reading this quite honestly a few months back and couldn't get into it right away and set it down. I think I didn't get into it mostly because it's a little bit of a historical fiction. But after reading Angel of 13th Street, also by Eden Winters, I enjoyed that book so much I thought I would give this one another try. I'm so glad I did. This book has made my favorites shelf.Malcolm Byerly is a violinist that accepts a tutoring position in the Highlands in or [...]

    10. DNF @ %54I am truly sorry but i cannot be sure if the author is adult; cos the writing was as 12 yo kid's writing. Are you kidding me? Have some respect to the Scottish and British History please

    11. Aillil, future laird of the Callaghan clan, hates everything English. When his father brings in Englishman Malcolm Byerly as teacher to his younger sons, Aillil is determined to dislike the man. Yet, he can't fight fate which forges the two together over a shared passion for the violin. When Malcolm dies from a fever, Aillil only wants to follow his love into the grave. But ancient Druid magic promises him a second chance at life, and Aillil grabs it without hesitation. Two hundred years later a [...]

    12. Ein sturer Schotte und ein zurückhaltender Engländer, die nach der Zeit der englischen Eroberung in Schottland zusammenfinden? Kann das funktionieren?Und ob. Wenn auch nur für eine Weile, denn Aillil Callaghan und Malcolm Byerly leben nun mal in einer Zeit, in der eine offene gelebte Liebe zwischen zwei Männern schlicht unmöglich ist. Dennoch finden die beiden nach einem schwierigen Start zusammen und ich habe mich beim Lesen bald gefragt, wo da die Verbindung zur aktuellen Zeit herkommen s [...]

    13. This is an extraordinarily beautiful romance set in the wildness of the Scottish Highlands. I tried to tell a friend about this book and my words just couldn't capture the beauty of the story. I struggled to explain my love for this book but I couldn't describe how the story touched my heart and emotions in a very deep way. It is a beautiful and surprising story with a hint of magic and I love it. Malcolm Byerly a teacher arrives to tutor four young boys but it is their older brother Aillil who [...]

    14. I wish I could remember who recommended this book to me, because I want to thank them! This was a new-to-me author, and the premise had me hooked right away—Ms. Winters had me at "violin" basically, but I'm also enchanted by the idea of reincarnated lovers, and the book had just enough angst to satisfy me. Well-drawn characters that you root for, some excellent writing, and a premise I hadn't really seen before made this an excellent read for me. I had a few niggles (namely that my background [...]

    15. Comparable to Liquid Glass in plot. Perfect book for the ailing soul. The only thing is I could have used a bit more voyeurism at the end. There was this big finish with over 200 pages leading up to it and then it just seemed to be over. Would have liked a bit more whipped cream with my desert.

    16. I'd been wanting a Highlander romance and this satisfied that craving. I'll admit I did enjoy the first portion of the book more than the modern day stuff but overall it was a good book.

    17. “On the fateful night he set foot on the road to destiny, the notes formed on the strings fluently spoke the language of heartbreak.”So begins the lovely saga called Duet by Eden Winters. A stunning love story that spans not just decades but centuries as true love, a selfless and sacrificial love cannot be denied or buried but, instead, left waiting for its moment of rebirth. Duet is a lyrical love story that sings to the reader, calling into play the mysteries of highland magic along with a [...]

    18. Me ha gustado bastante, sobre todo la primera parte de la novela, pero luego no sé, demasiadas teorías en muy poco espacio, sin embargo, es entretenida y seguro buscaré más de la autora,

    19. Eden Winters has become a must-read author for me.Duet is the second book I have read by her, and once again, I found the story to be absolutely spellbinding and delicious. Typically I do not enjoy reading historical fiction and when I began this book, I thought, “uh-oh, what did I get myself into?” T my great pleasure, Eden created a book that handled historical fiction with authenticity, portraying a world in which the characters followed the norms of a specific time, yet she managed to hi [...]

    20. A duet that just didn't quite get it together. Duet is really two stories in one: the first being a tale of two lovers: one from England and one from Scotland. Lust and hatred are overcome by kindess and heroism as the two discover the best of each other. This first part takes place mostly in Scotland around 1750 when the two kingdoms? were bitter enemies. (Even today there isn't that much of a love-fest between the two as the Scots have yet--with good reason--never quite forgiven the British fo [...]

    21. 3.5Я долго не могла определиться, как оценить этот роман, т.к. он произвел на меня неоднозначное впечатление.В первую очередь, это стиль изложения. Я даже не могу объяснить, что конкретно меня не устраивает, и вроде бы с авторским языком все в порядке, но на протяжении всей кни [...]

    22. Though this book has been out for three years, I just got around to reading it. Knocking off a book that's been sitting in my TBR file for a long time is a satisfying accomplishment. I'm a bit disappointed in myself for having bypassed it so many times, because it really is such a beautiful story. In many ways it's atypical of the m/m romance stories within this genre. Duet actually crosses the boundaries of several sub-genres, including historical, gay romance, and paranormal/ghost. Writing thi [...]

    23. da sognipensieriparoleEcco cosa capita a non leggere la trama prima di iniziare. Ho visto la cover, ho letto i primi capitoli con davanti agli occhi questo highlander con chioma selvaggia corvina e sono andata in modalità "OMG". E mi sono detta: finalmente un m/m a sfondo storico. Vai!Aspettative e tensione sensuale sempre più stellare, finchè BANG. Superata la metà del libro, ho passato dieci minuti a fissare lo schermo dell'e-reader: ma perché??? Ho passato alcuni giorni in stato confusio [...]

    24. Turned out to be mostly just ok. Yeah the middle bit was sad, but the end felt incredibly rushed. It kinda lacked all the chemistry that the two MCs had back in ye olden Scottish times. I loved the premise of the book, but a lot of the time it felt like the author was more focused on getting the characters to the next major plot twist then she was on building up a story between those points. Also, I'm not exactly sure I buy that Malcolm would be constantly reincarnated looking exactly the same, [...]

    25. A two part tale- the eighteenth century Highlands section brings our couple together, then tears them apart. Ms Winters gives us a harsh Rob-Roy look at the realities of the time, along with some gentle family-oriented scenes, which smack Aillil for making assumptions. I enjoyed that touch greatly.The modern day sections are also vivid, with the violinist's music and realizations performed so clearly that we are there in both concert hall and bedroom. Druid magic makes everything possible for Ai [...]

    26. Now this is an unusual one. The first half reads as a straightforward historical romance, but then---something very odd indeed happens, and the story takes a peculiar turn, placing it firmly in the "paranormal/supernatural" category.And you know---the combination worked perfectly for me. Man, what an inspiring love story. You can't help but get a bit snuffly while reading of the devotion these two fellows have for one another. Highly recommended!
