5.0 out of 5 stars The marriage prize unchains her abductor.....or is it chains? ;), October 23, 2007
This review is from: Highlander Unchained: A Novel (Macleods of Skye) (Mass Market Paperback)
Highlander (Laird) Lachlan Maclean is desperate to protect his clan. He will do anything to restore his rightful place at his castle and bring his brother back. Anything. That includes abducting the highlander heiress and wooing her into marriage. If only it were that easy. The Holyrood hellion was aptly named. For there never was a more troublesome making woman. Och! A beauty for sure, who lefts broken hearts at court. But Lachlan isn't intimidated by the wee bonnie lass. He doesn't need or want her heart. He only needs her hand in marriage. How difficult could that be?

Flora MacLeod is determined not follow the path of her mother, a bartered political pawn. The handsome and dangerous highlander may have stolen her, but never her heart! Certainly she will never agree to a marriage. Nay! All his wooing will come to naught. For she will never succumb to his desires. Even if they become her own?

Because of her birth and wealth (of which she has no control over) Flora is know as the greatest marriage prize in Scotland. The alliance through her marriage alone would make her valuable, but with her money she is irresistible. But she doesn't want marriage on anyone's terms. She doesn't want to end up like her miserable mother. Then she is abducted and fights for her life. Bringing forth her entire arsenal of trouble making ways. While held captive she reluctantly finds love. Only the secret the hero holds can shatter the bond they so tenuously have formed. The hero is torn. Doing what is good for his people and not hurting the one woman he loves. No one will emerge from this unscathed.

If you like those strong heroine types then this is for you. Another hunky highlander and his spirited lass. Similar and just as good as the prequel 'Highlander Unmasked' (my personal favorite of the trilogy) in that the hero is torn between his duty and love. Well fleshed out characters and an intriguing plot. But the loves scenes? **thud** (that's me fainting here ;)) Maccarty doesn't call it highlander UNCHAINED for nothing! Lachlan sure doesn't hold back in his lovin'! Recommended. A fine Scottish historical romance with plenty of spice.

And kudos to the author for adding the interesting tidbit about the legend about the 'Lady's Rock'. Makes you want to believe in fairy tales and HEA endings.
