Aimil Mengue is betrothed to Rory Fergueson, a man who has secretly killed her mother and covered it up when she refused his advances. Aimil, who has been captured for ransom by the alluring Parlan MacGuin, demands a high ransom for her release. He offers Aimil the choice to either give Parlan her magnificent horse, Elfking, or give herself to him willingly. She is appalled, but wants to keep Elfking, so offers herself instead. Both become lovers, although neither one will admit their true feelings for the other. It is only when Rory finds out Aimil is with his enemy, Parlan, that the two men fight and it comes to light that Aimil and Parlan do love each other.

Overall, it is a good read. I have read a few of Hannah's books recently and been getting through them quite quickly. It is a book I will keep and read again.

Very good read 21 Dec. 2009
By MMP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I was really surprised by this book as it didn't take the normal path of so many other romance books.There is actually character,hardship,and after marriage relationships to be enjoyed. Even more surprising is the male lead specifically knows what characteristics and qualities he admires and loves in the woman. There isn't Hot sex now we are in "love". No this is a rare find and worth the read. The author works the relationship with both characters, and no worries the romance is plenty Hot!
The discription of the book does not do it justice and there are MANY ups and downs to be had. The villian is truely evil and he comes back again and again.
First our fair lady is captured. Then she is to marry another who happens to be a Sadistic SICKO, her father seemingly has turned from her as if he doesn't care, and if that's not enough... her captor wants her horse!!! I promise I doesn't end there, that's just the begining. This is a good read and I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

A Solid Hannah Howell 24 Nov. 2008
By MyraK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It has been awhile since I read this book, as it is indeed a reprint ( and renaming) of "Elfking's Lady." It is a bit slow in the first few pages, but once Aimil is abducted, the pace picks up. Aimil has been betrothed to Rory Fergueson since she was in the cradle. The problem is that she dislikes him, and has heard very bad things about him. So has her brother Leith. But her father is determined on the wedding, no matter what. For some reason, Aimil's father has pretty much turned his back on Aimil completely. When Aimil started to mature physically, she began to look more and more like her deceased mother, and her father became more and more withdrawn and cold toward Aimil.

Enter the MacGuin's. Parlan is the head of the family, and has a younger, much more rash brother, Artair. He captures Aimil and Leith, and nearly succeeds in killing both, especially Leith. Parlan is furious! The only saving grace is that Aimil's prize horse, Elfking, is also captured. Parlan is thrilled to have such a fine horse to add to his stable. The only drawback is that Aimil appears to be the only one that can control Elfking, nor will she willingly walk away from her beloved horse!

As the story develops, of course the relationship also does between Aimil and Parlan, brought together through Elfking. Artair isn't quite done messing things up, but he isn't the bad guy here, just the stupid one! When we get to know Rory Fergueson, skin truly crawls! He is so twisted and evil, and so determined to have his way, you keep wondering if he will indeed succeed in at least some of his goals.

There are some good plot twists that I didn't see coming in this one. If Ms. Howell and/or the publisher haven't cut the book from the original, it is a good, strong story of love overcoming many obstacles, and surviving many hardships and tragedies. Both Aimil and Parlan come into the story as strong characters, who have already survived many hard things. They are drawn to each other because of their love for Elfking, and horses, but also because of their similar values and beliefs. They compliment each other nicely.

If you are a Hannah Howell fan, you will love this book. If you are like me, and your copy of "Elfking's Lady is a bit tattered and torn, you will rejoice in the opportunity to get a nice new shiny one! If you are a first time Hannah Howell reader, I might recommend some of her others, depending on your individual tastes, but this is still a good, solid example of her writing, especially of her early books. So take a chance if you love good romance, don't mind a lot of written Scottish brogue, and love to sigh happily at the end of a book!

Highland Captive 26 Jan. 2009
By M. Nix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
After Aimil Mengue and her brother Leith were captured by Artair MacGuin and thrown in a dungeon, Aimil thought the worst had happened to them. She was wrong. Artair's brother, Parlan MacGuin is the laird of Dubhglenn. When he discovers Aimil and Leith he is furious. Although Aimil and Leith remain captives, Parlan treats them much better. Intrigued by Aimil and her magnificent horse Elfking, Parlan decides to keep them for a while. While Parlan enjoys the company of his captive, another man stews in his hatred for having lost his future bride. Aimil is betrothed to Rory Fergueson and he will stop at nothing to take back what belongs to him.

Highland Captive is a re- release of Hannah Howell's Elfking's Lady. Highland Captive is a traditional Scottish romance where kidnappings are the norm and falling for ones sexy captor seems inevitable. Parlan is a rogue in every sense and Aimil is very innocent yet full of fire. Their story takes many turns often leading them to similar fates. The one constant in Highland Captive is the Parlan and Aimil's intense attraction and desire for each other. Although they often fight for their love, and their lives, the chemistry between them remains strong. Highland Captive is a story filled with passion, feeling, and tradition.

Please note: Highland Captive was previously re-released under the title of ElfKing's King.

what a waste of my money 27 Feb. 2013
By Jujubee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This female character is week stupid and pathetic! She wants to sleep with him a few hours after she meets him? I am so disappointed. I want strong female characters not silly women who are too perfect. Also, this book is rather abrupt with do much happening within a few hours. I want to see a woman.who doesn't just fall to pieces when a man touched her. Where is the strength? Where is the fight? Wouldn't she try yo fight her captor if he tried to take her virginity and wouldn't it hurt when he did? This is not historically accurate at all!

Slow start and a draged out ending 10 Dec. 2008
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book didn't start off bad but towards the end it seemed like the writer was trying to push the story out 84 more pages than it needed to be with the two love birds playing games of "you are going say I love you first" and a bad guy who should have been taken care of earlier

Another thing I could stand was the hero of the story. He seemed to me as childish with his worrying about his looks and wanting the heroine to say that she loves him first.
