Product Description

Product Description

His mission is to capture. Hers is to turn the tide.

Twenty-two-year-old Julia MacLeod discovers a secret tunnel leading from Dunvegan Castle, the stronghold of her MacLeod clan. Her chief would never allow her to leave without a guard during this time of war, but up for an adventure, she scurries along the dank passageway and through a maze of twists and turns.

Highland warrior Ivor MacDonald is on a solitary mission to secure a bargaining chip against his chief’s rival clan. While scouting the cliffs near Dunvegan Castle for a way in, a lone woman topples from the cliffs and into the frigid waters of the ocean. Honor demands he rescue her, even though it might bring his mission into jeopardy. Then he discovers she’s the chief’s cousin, and his bargaining chip has just fallen right into his hands.

Ivor steals his captive away, and on a journey across the ocean, his mission soon takes a turn. Julia’s trust in him sees his honor battling to override his need for revenge. Has his captive now turned the tide, and became the captor instead?

Like a story you would read in a weekly womans magazine. Totally unrealistic and shallow. Would not recommend it at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced story of love challenging historical norms 22 Jan 2014
By Jessica - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a sweet novella, perfect for reading in one sitting and escaping to a rocky historical Highland coast. Joanne Wadsworth writes a lovable, adventurous heroine and a strong, alpha male hero who is willing to sacrifice much for the woman he loves. You can't go wrong with $0.99. Pick this one up if you love Highlander tales.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hero and Heroine to Steal Your Heart 13 Jan 2014
By Mae Clair - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Author, Joanne Wadsworth gives us a fantastic glimpse into her Highlander Heat series with this short novella, Highlander’s Captive. There’s danger, romance, and yes, heat in the sizzling love scenes between Julia and Ivor, who are members of warring clans. Ivor is not only brave and HOT, but sooooo honorable, any heroine would melt in his arms. The scenes between him and Julia, (who ends up his captive when she falls off a cliff!) are touching and tender as well as sexy and sensual.

The rivalry between their clans creates a serious problem when they realize-- despite their accidental meeting--they are destined for each other. This is a delicious read from start to finish with a hero and heroine you can’t help but root for. I look forward to more in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful romance 14 Jun 2014
By Kimi C - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I actually liked this book. It was a short novella and was done quite well. She was able to make it an adventure and romance without making you feel rushed. You liked Ivor and Julia, they work well as a couple and believable.

Julia falls into the water and is unable to swim to the top, Ivor happens to be there and swims out to save her. Only to capture her for his clan to use as a bargaining chip.

This is a fast paced book, that takes you on a very nice ride. I will be adding the rest of the series to my with list.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quick and enjoyable introduction to the Highlander Heat series. 23 Feb 2014
By Nancy Stephenson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a novella, it's a quick story, with a quick ending, but that being said, I enjoyed reading it, loved the characters, and look forward to more books in this series. It's a great introduction to the world of the Highlander Heat series.
