But, in spite of Angus's overpowering charms, she refuses to surrender her innocence without a fight…

With her stunning beauty, bold defiance, and brazen smile, Gwendolen is the most infuriating woman Angus has ever known—and the most intoxicating. Forcing her to become his bride will unite their two clans. But conquering Gwendolen's heart will take all his skills as a lover. Night after night, his touch sets her on fire. Kiss after kiss, his hunger fuels her passion. But, as Gwendolen's body betrays her growing love for Angus, a secret enemy plots to betray them both…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful read! I just finished Claimed by the Highlander with a happy, satisfied sigh. Julianne MacLean is an auto-buy/keeper shelf author for me and I was surprised to learn that the hero of this book is someone who is...well, not so nice at the end of the first book in the trilogy (Captured by the Highlander). I'm not sure if that is why I had a hard time warming to Angus at first, but it was initially hard to get on his side. But that changes big time and Gwen is the perfect strong heroine to match him. The thing is, Angus isn't even sure if he knows how to love, and he shuts off his emotions. He shuts out everyone around him who may care and as a result, he kind of shuts out the reader, too. But that's all part of his growth arc, and the further I got into the book the faster the pages started to turn. Loving does not make him weak but he is afraid it does. The plot twists as we get closer to the end are awesome. At one point I was reading and thinking how could Julianne DO that to Gwen (I won't say what as I try to stay fairly spoiler-free) and let's just say that what happens is the worst possible thing that could happen to her. I know my mouth hung open in parts. And the ending - oh, it was perfection! Just like she did in the beginning, Gwen stands up to the Lion of the Highlands in adorable fashion! With her trademark sensuality and wit, MacLean has written another page-turner! I can't wait for the conclusion of the trilogy!
