She has a year to make him love her ... Isabel MacDonald agrees to a handfast marriage with Rory MacLeod, her clan's bitterest enemy in order to end a deadly feud. But the handfast is only a cover to gain her access to his castle--and with a little seduction, his heart. But her treacherous plans are immediately tested by the fearsome Rory, a powerful Highland chief who embodies everything she admires. Soon Isabel has found the place in the family she's always dreamed of with the man she must betray, and her only hope of happiness is to escape her own dangerous web of lies. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer ... Rory's duty as Chief of Clan MacLeod is clear: He'll obey the king's directive to handfast with the MacDonald lass--but under his own terms. As a handfast is only required for a year, at that point Rory plans to return this unwanted handfast bride to her family and forge a different marriage alliance. But his plan to keep his distance from his unwanted bride is challenged by the beautiful seductive siren who proves impossible to ignore. And when he catches her snooping and removes her to his bed to watch over her, Rory finds himself wishing that the year would never end.… (més)

I had read pretty good reviews about this so my hopes were a bit high which might have lead to my slight disappointment. It was an alright story - I am not really a fan of a plot where one of the leads are out for betrayal, but i read past that. I found that the author repeated herself a bit which made me less interested - however I did find that near the last half of the book her repetitiveness stopped, and it moved along smoother for me,which was nice and I found myself enjoying it. I believe this is the author's first book, so I am going to give the second book a try. Alex story sounds intriguing. ( )

Love it! I adore Highlanders and since I've discovered Monica McCarty I fell in love every time that I've read or reread one of her books.
The story is accurate, full of facts and historical events, the plot is based on real characters (that of course, get a new "makeover", the writing is brilliant and kept you enthralled since line one.
If you want an historical novel with a sexy Highlander and a sassy heroine, this is the book. ( )

AUTHOR: As with any historical fiction romance author, Monica has done a great job researching the history that is the basis and foundation of this book. She has written a very sexy and passionate Scottish adventure. You will want to read book two after completing HIGHLANDER UNTAMED.

SYNOPSIS –

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.

The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
