From the Back Cover

From bestselling storyteller Julianne MacLean comes the passionate saga of three Highland warriors sworn to fight for freedom, honor—and the women they love…

NIGHT OF CONQUEST

With his tawny mane, battle-hewn brawn, and ferocious roar, Angus “The Lion” MacDonald is the most fearsome warrior Lady Gwendolen has ever seen—and she is his most glorious conquest. Captured in a surprise attack on her father’s castle, Gwendolen is now forced to share her bed with the man who defeated her clan. But, in spite of Angus’s overpowering charms, she refuses to surrender her innocence without a fight…

PRISONER OF PASSION

With her stunning beauty, bold defiance, and brazen smile , Gwendolen is the most infuriating woman Angus has ever known—and the most intoxicating. Forcing her to become his bride will unite their two clans. But conquering Gwendolen’s heart will take all his skills as a lover. Night after night, his touch sets her on fire. Kiss after kiss, his hunger fuels her passion. But, as Gwendolen’s body betrays her growing love for Angus, a secret enemy plots to betray them both…

Great love story with plenty of action and hot love scenes.
Jennifer Gerber
I was set out somewhat not to like the hero of this story, he had betrayed his closest friend in the previous book (for a good reason in his mind).
Cynthia Collins
Once I closed the book, I started looking forward to picking up the third in the series!

I'll be the first to admit to being picky about Highlander romance novels (Julie Garwood is a hard act to follow!). I'm loving this series by Julianne MacLean, though! This is the second book, the first being Captured by the Highlander, and if possible I'd read them in order. This book is strong enough to stand on its own but having the history added something.
I was set out somewhat not to like the hero of this story, he had betrayed his closest friend in the previous book (for a good reason in his mind). Angus MacDonald was exiled from his clan for the betrayal and his home was eventually given to another after his father died. The daughter of the new Laird, Lady Gwendolen is prepared to defend her home after the death of her father, when Angus "The Lion" MacDonald comes along to overtake his former home. As a way of uniting the two clans, Angus declares he will marry her and their heirs will be Laird in the future.
She's resistant in the beginning to caring for a man who took her home, he's reluctant to actually begin to love his wife as he thinks it will make him weak. Through various twists and turns we get our happy ending, but it's pretty entertaining getting there. Definitely a book worth reading if you like Highlander romances!

To be honest I did not want to read this book based on the character Angus and I did not really enjoy the first book but I had to know how Angus was going to redeem himself with Duncan. This book was better than the first book and I read it all day. The lead characters in the book came together so well and the book just seemed to flow. The plot was well thought out and did not seem far fetched. Sometimes authors can drag out the lead characters coming together so long that a reader will lose interested. This book just worked from all angles! EXCELLENT

This is the second in MacLean's Highlander trilogy. Like the first one, this also involves Angus MacDonald, who with his father's death has become the head of the MacDonald clan. The story takes place in 1718, two years after Captured by a Highlander. After having been banished by his father for betraying the Butcher, a hero of Scotland and his best friend, Angus returns after he learns of his father's death to regain his family's castle, Kinloch, that was taken over by the Macwen clan with permission of the British Crown. Angus storms the gate, retakes Kinloch and declares he will have Gwendolen MacEwen, the daughter of the old laird, to wife to merge the clans. Initially Gwendolen fights the idea but then warms to the passions between them, and agrees to become his wife. Meanwhile, as the affection grows between Angus and Gwendolen, her brother Murdoch is still at large and is expected to attack any day and Angus' former lover, the "Oracle," arrives to foretell his death by hanging.

What I didn't like: 90% of this story takes place in Kinloch castle and most of that in one bedchamber (there's a fair amount of sex which actually got a bit boring by the end). While the uprising in 1715 was mentioned, it really was only as background. There wasn't much history in this historical, though the setting was the Highlands. The main characters engaged in too much inner angst for my taste, which led to long passages of narrative which I found provided no new information, and some of which I skipped (never a good sign). Lastly, some of the dialog seemed inane. I finished it but just barely. It was easy to put down. I am not recommending this one and not buying the third in the series when it comes out. I know MacLean can write well and some of the other reviewers have said her earlier works are among their favorites, but like another reviewer, I was disappointed with this one.

Romance readers will be enthralled with mega-talented Julianne MacLean's, CLAIMED BY THE HIGHLANDER, Book #2 in her fiery Highlander Trilogy for St. Martin's Press April 2011. In 1718, Kinloch Castle, the Scottish Highlands, Lady Gwendolen MacEwen is determined to fight with her men against the invader, Angus "The Lion" MacDonald despite her mother, Onora's advice to surrender to him. Angus has come with his cousin, Lachlan, the Laird of War and army of Highlanders to battle for his family's castle that was taken from his late father for being a Jacobite trader to the English crown. The castle had been awarded to Gwendolen's recently deceased father when he was alive via Letters of Fire and Sword by King George and now rightfully belongs to her brother, Murdoch, who has been away indefinitely on the continent. The turquoise-eyed beauty is no match for the fierce, tawny-haired Lion and Angus quickly reclaims his birthright. Angus also demands Gwen become his wife to unite the two clans. However, she insists on several conditions including fairness and compensation for her people and wedding before bedding her. Angus agrees to Gwen's terms if she'll support his rule in public and in private. However, Gwen goes too far when she also requests Angus keep her family's heraldry up in the great hall which angers him greatly and he takes her immediately to bed where their negotiations continue! However, the feisty Gwen is not willing to submit easily and it will take all Angus' skills as a lover to get her to melt in his arms. But first they must deal with her flirtatious mother, errant brother and a secret enemy, who plots to betray them. CLAIMED BY THE HIGHLANDER will claim readers' hearts with its great sparring between this well-matched pair both in and out of the bedroom!Read more ›
