The MacLeods are a powerful Highland clan.  Their chief, Rory MacLeod, is brave and daring.  His duty is to protect his clan and avenge any wrongs done to them.  One such wrong has led Rory to swear vengeance on the MacDonald clan.  When the king orders Rory to wed Isabel MacDonald, the two enter a handfast marriage.  Although Rory plans to send Isabel home after a year and a day, he finds it hard to resist the incredibly beautiful woman.

Isabel MacDonald has been sent by her uncle and father to spy on the MacLeod clan.  Charged to use whatever means available to her, she is to discover MacLeod secrets.  Secrets held only by the chief himself, Rory MacLeod.  Rory arouses feeling in Isabel she never experienced before.  Isabel also becomes friends with Rory’s siblings.  For the first time, Isabel finds happiness.  Faced with betraying her uncle and father or the happiness she has found with the MacLeods, Isabel must follow her heart.

I adore Highland romance.  Just the thought of that accent, those bared muscular legs and what is not worn under their kilts sends me into drooling fantasies.  Highlander Untamed fulfills my every fantasy!  Monica McCarty ratchets ordinary Highland romance up several notches and delivers a sharply entertaining read.  Highlander Untamed is deeply romantic, sensually passionate and very clever.
