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.
 First Line(s): "Do you ever wish but for a moment to go back in time?"

My Review: What a heart wrenching story line! It had me from the very start and I was left wanting more.

Maya Banks is a fantastic author but the way she spins her characters, the settings and turn them into this wonderful adventure puts her on the top of my go to authors when it comes to "Historical Romances". She may be new to this genre of romance but Maya is more than holding her own.

I admired Genevieve so much in this story. The things she had to endure and still come out so amazingly strong... She was fierce! As for Bowen, how do I get a Bowen in my life.... Dreamboat! He is everything a woman would want.
Willing to defend your honor at all cost... check!
Attractive..... check... well HE IS! Totally worth listing it twice.
