Captured by the Highlander is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

Lady Amelia Sutherland would rather die than surrender to a man like Duncan MacLean. He is the fiercest warrior of his clan--her people''s sworn enemy--and tonight he is standing over her bed. Eyes blazing, muscles taut, and battle axe gleaming, MacLean has come to kill Amelia''s fiancé. But once he sees the lovely, innocent Amelia, he decides to take her instead.


Stealing the young bride-to-be is the perfect revenge against the man who murdered Duncan''s one true love. But Lady Amelia turns out to be more than a pawn of vengeance and war. This brave, beautiful woman touches something deep in Duncan''s soul that is even more powerful than a warrior''s fury. But when Amelia begins to fall in love with her captor--and surrenders in his arms--the real battle begins.


Julianne MacLean''s Captured by the Highlander is sizzling historical romance.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Keeper. Lady Amelia Templeton has never before faced a threat to her life, nor been held prisoner by a sworn enemy of all she values. Duncan MacLean has little interest in Lady Amelia except as a pawn in a dangerous game. Forced together by circumstances, both are trapped in a passion so powerful that neither can find the will to escape. From the moment you begin reading CAPTURED BY THE HIGHLANDER you will be enthralled by the roller coaster ride of exciting plot twists, and a love affair that withstands the most overwhelming circumstances. This is MacLean at her best—fast action, high drama and a love affair defined by the sexual tension between Amelia and Duncan. A fantastic read. Looking forward to CLAIMED BY THE HIGHLANDER and SEDUCED BY THE HIGHLANDER

Read from the Book

Chapter One   Fort William, the Scottish Highlands, August 1716 Monstrous and mighty, teeth bared like a feral beast, the Butcher rose from his battle lunge and watched the English soldier drop lifelessly to the floor at his feet. He swung his damp hair away from his face, then knelt down and removed the keys from the dead man’s pocket. The Butcher continued in silence through the cold corridor of the barracks, ignoring the stench of stale sweat and rum, while he searched for the staircase that would take him to his enemy. The chilly haze of death flowed through him, steeled him viciously, and compelled him to the top of the stairs, where he stopped outside the heavy, oaken door of the officers’ quarters. The Butcher paused briefly to listen for the ill-timed approach of yet another tenacious young guard, but there was no sound other than the noise of his own ragged breathing, and the beat of his heart as he savored this long-awaited moment of vengeance. He adjusted the shield strapped to his back, then squeezed the handle of the sawed-off Lochaber axe in his hand. His shirt was grimy with dirt and sweat from days in the saddle and nights spent sleeping in the grass, but it had all been worth it, for the moment had come at last. It was time to cut down his foe. To slaughter the memory of what had occurred that cold November day in the orchard. Tonight he would kill for his clan, for his country, and for his beloved. There would be no mercy offered. He would s
