Product Description

Product Description

Rory MacLeod is a bold and powerful Highland Chief with only one allegiance–to his clan. He vows revenge against the rival MacDonald clan, though duty demands a handfast marriage to Isabel MacDonald–a bride he does not want and has no intention of keeping. But Rory couldn’t have anticipated the captivating woman who challenges his steely control, and unleashes the untamed passion simmering beneath his fierce exterior.

Blessed with incomparable beauty, Isabel MacDonald is prepared to use every means possible–including seduction–to uncover her husband’s most guarded secrets. Instead Rory awakens Isabel’s deepest desires and her sweetest fantasies. Now Isabel has found the happiness she’s always dreamed of with the very man she must betray, and discovers that passion can be far more dangerous than revenge.

From the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut book 22 Mar 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rory McLeod, a powerful chieften has agreed to handfast Isabelle McDonald the daughter of a rival clan. His plan to go through with the handfast and finish it later to right the wrongs that was done to his sister. Rory is unprepared for Isabelle's beauty and is shocked of it's affect on him. He finds it hard to remain detatched and cool when he's around her but he is determined to stick to his plan.
Isabelle is unaware of rory's plans for her. But she has plans of her own. She must find an artifact belonging to the Mcleods for generations and pass on the information to her uncle then she will be released from her obligation.
Both though are unprepared for the affect they have on each other and find they are falling in love. both Rory and Isabelle start to put their plans aside, until Rory beleives Isabelle has betrayed him.
This is a great debut book with strong characters and a great storyline. I've read all three books and all have captured my attention. I will be looking out for more books by Monica McCarty and she is a writer to look out for in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, sensual, wonderful romance! 11 Jun 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have just finished reading Monica McCarty's debut novel: Highlander Untamed, but I sure will read the other 2 books of the trilogy!

The story is gripping and keeps you interested, her characters seem real, not just some shallowly painted 2D, made up characters, but actual persons. Monica McCarty has put great effort into giving them depth and substance, and she has succeeded! Her characters won't leave you indifferent, either you will love them fiercely (Isabel is such a loveable and sweet charcter, but she still has a backbone, Rory the hero is wonderfully handsome and oh so noble) or you will shrink from them from disgust (as from the MacDonald of Sleat or the Mackenzies). And another thing I found refreshing about her novel wasthat she gave space and depth to the supporting characters too! You grew to love them, because she gave you a glimpse into their lives and thoughts! Alex (oh what a charming and sweet man, I'm so glad we'll see him again the 2nd book!), Margaret, Ian and Bessie are just a few of them, but they really grew close to my heart while reading Highlander Untamed.

McCarty's story telling is gripping and will transport you in the misty green medieval Scotland in no time! Her writing style is exceptional, with such a superior writing quality that I haven't seen for quite some time in other recent romance writers. Her writing is amazingly brilliant and evocative, she paints such a real picture of the scene, of the characters, that you feel you are there witnessing what is happening, or at least watching it like a movie!

The emotions, attractions, friendships, loves, loyalties, hate, betrayals are described very powerfully, they are not just words, but raw, overwhelming or heartwarming emotions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only if you love Mills and Boon 10 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I went on the positive reviews and downloaded this to my iPad. It was my fault. I searched for Highlander books when I should have searched for paranormal highlander books, as paranormal romance is my thing. I did enjoy it at first. The premise about the hand fasting and spying that Isabel was meant to do to save her clan was a good idea. however, for me the story went wrong when her clan went back home straight after the hand fasting ceremony.

From that point on until half way through the book there was no combative action whatsoever, even though fierce clan wars are meant to be what it's all about, apart from the fact that they are both such overwhelmingly beautiful people that they have a massive attraction to each other but whilst she tries to seduce him at every opportunity, his honour and loyalty to his clan always comes first. There is nothing else but the two of them and a couple of petting scenes, in which btw he makes exactly the same moves twice. This gave the impression that Rory's bedroom expertise was rather limited and I wondered if they would ever get on with it properly given the fact that they seemed to feel so into each other that they never felt that way before. Yawn.

When the half way book fighting scene finally came it was played up so much, ie there was sooooo much danger in riding out beyond the castle walls and how the absent Rory would be extremely furious about them doing just that that I expected a mighty battle about to take place. Alas, the build up went on too long as well and was incredibly tame.

4.0 out of 5 stars very enjoyable 20 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this author. She knows how to create great suspense and really interesting and deep characters. She creates excellent stories with thrilling plots but best of all steamy sexy scenes full of love and care not trashy like some less eloquent writers.
