Blurb from Goodreads:
Maya Banks, the New York Times bestselling author of erotic romance, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance, has captivated readers with her steamy Scottish historical novels, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood. 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.
A very big thank you to Netgalley and Random House/Ballantine Books for providing me with an ARC of this book.
My Reaction Upon Receiving the Approval (cuz I'm such a big fan of this series):
Highlander Most Wanted picks up where Never Seduce A Scot leaves off. The pacing of the story is very much similar to the first book in the series, albeit a little slow going. Nevertheless, the characters are engaging, the plot crisp and solid.
Genevieve is such a strong woman. After all the tragedies and horrors that have besieged her, she does not turn bitter. Instead, she possesses a beautiful heart and spirit. Her tenacity and determination are greatly admired.
Bowen is the epitome of male perfection – very much like his brother Graeme. His love for Genevieve is so deep that he is willing to sacrifice his own happiness to give back what has been stolen from her.
Although the attraction between Bowen and Genevieve is immediate and mutual, the build up to the romance keeps you at the edge of your seat. Once again, Maya Banks has crafted a captivating and heartfelt story of courage, honour, hope and love.
