About the Author
Monica McCarty's interest in the Scottish clan system began in the most unlikely of places: a comparative legal history course at Stanford Law School. After a short but enjoyable stint practicing law, she realized that her legal vocation and her husband's transitory career as a professional baseball player were not exactly a match made in heaven. So she traded in her legal briefs for Scottish historical romances with sexy alpha heroes. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and their two young children.

But, out of those 4 I've read, this was by far, far, FAR the weakest entry. The plot was nigh on non-existent, the romance took until the last 20 pages to do anything, it was just so far below the standard of the other books. I'm a bit shocked, actually. And the portrayal of Alex's character is a million miles away from the nicer, less grumpy younger brother of Rory Mor we met in the first of this trilogy. I know he's supposed to have become hardened after his years away fighting with the MacGregors, but he was literally unrecognisable.
My Mummy says if you haven't got anything nice to say you shouldn't say anything at all. So I shall leave it there because the rest of the books have been really, really good, so I suppose I'll let this one slide.

I have to confess this second book is my least favourite in the trilogy, but still it is remarkably good (I just personally prefer the 1st and 3rd novels). McCarty's writing is again stellar, her prose is flowing and her characters are again more than mere 2D characters, they come off the page and live and breathe. Here is a heroine who is not that beautiful, at least her beauty is not striking at first sight, but has sucha kind and warm heart you'll instantly like her.
This novel is pulsing with passion (most of the time with repressed attraction and desire) and thanks to McCarty's brilliant writing you cannot remain unaffected.
If you like quality historical romance, reading about larger than life heros, or if you simply liked Monica McCarty's first novel, I'm sure you won't be disappointed by Highlander Unmasked. It is fast-paced, sensual, exciting and wonderfully written. (And if you do like it, don't stop there, go and read McCarty's other novels, you are in for a treat.)
