Captured by the Highlander
( First in a new series!)
by Julianne MacLean

\Mass Market Paperback, 336 pages
Published March 1st 2011 by St. Martin's Paperbacks



Lady Amelia Sutherland would rather die than surrender to a man like Duncan MacLean. He is the fiercest warrior of this clan-her people’s sworn enemy-and tonight he is standing over her bed. Eyes blazing, muscles taut, and battle axe gleaming, MacLean has come to kill Amelia’s fiance. But once he sees the lovely, innocent Amelia, he decides to take her instead...Stealing the young bride-to-be is the pefect revenge against the man who murdered Duncan’s one true love. But Lady Amelia turns out to be more than a pawn of vengeance and war. this brave, beautiful woman touches something deep in Duncan’s soul that is even more powerful than a warrior’s fury. but when Amelia begins to fall in love with her captor-and surrenders in his arms-the real battle begins...


First Line(s): Monstrous and mighty, teeth bared like a feral beast, the Butcher rose from his battle lunge and watched English soldier drop lifelessly to the floor at his feet.


Favorite Quote(s): n/a


My Review: My Review: I enjoyed this book! I am back on my Highlander saddle, can't get enough of them. I admit I picked this book up blindly ( not really, did you not see the abs on the cover?), I had never read anything by Julanne MacLean... well let's just say after reading this book I went out and got the second book in this new series!

I love Julianne MacLean's writing style, the storyline and the flow of Captured by the Highlander. Duncan and Lady Amelia worked well together and played off each other as if they were real people standing in front of you, they meshed!

I found Amelia to be a compassionate person who came off a bit naive at times but with her back story I think that is how she was suppose to come off as, she had lend a pretty shelter life up to the point on meeting Duncan. Julianne MacLean includes the reader in Amelia's own personal adventure of learning to not believe what you are always told but to get the facts for yourself. A true life lesson!

If you want a steamy, fast and solid read, this is your book!

My Rating:Photobucket


Until next time...

Happy Reading!
