In Highlander Most Wanted, a reclusive woman content to live in the shadows shows a Highland warrior the true meaning of love.
Genevieve McInnes is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen’s rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress—something warm, wicked, and tempting.
Bowen seizes his enemy’s keep, unprepared for the brooding and reclusive woman who captures his heart. He’s enchanted by her fierce determination, her unusual beauty, and her quiet, unfailing strength. But wooing her will take more than a seasoned seducer’s skill. For loving Genevieve, he discovers, means giving her back the freedom that was stolen from her—even if it means losing her forever
This is a book full of sweet romance that will have you sighing as your heart strings are pulled on when you hear the story of young Gwen McInnes's life under the cruel hands of a monster known as Ian McHugh.
I requested this book from netgalley, not knowing it was a second in the series, despite it being the second it is a book that is worth reading as a stand alone. I didn't find myself lost for one minute, it was as if it was just starting out on it's own. Which for Gwen and Bowen it was.
With steam rolling off of the pages in some of the naughtier scene's, it was not all toe curling pages full of erotic images, it has a great story line that is well thought out and heartbreaking.
It is definitely a book I am glad to have come across and hopefully kept to memory if not gracing my shelves.
Being introduced to a new author is always a thrilling and scary thing since you can never tell how their writing style will fit with your reading style. Thankfully with this book it was worth taking a chance because I am now a fan and look foreword to reading more of her work.
