Synopsis: In Highlander Most Wanted, a reclusive woman content to live in the shadows shows a Highland warrior the true meaning of love.

Genevieve McInnes is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen’s rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress—something warm, wicked, and tempting.

Bowen seizes his enemy’s keep, unprepared for the brooding and reclusive woman who captures his heart. He’s enchanted by her fierce determination, her unusual beauty, and her quiet, unfailing strength. But wooing her will take more than a seasoned seducer’s skill. For loving Genevieve, he discovers, means giving her back the freedom that was stolen from her—even if it means losing her forever.

Karen's Thoughts:
Maya Banks writes the most gorgeous and heroic Highlanders. I've loved all of Maya’s previous Highlander stories and this book is no exception.

Highlander Most Wanted is book 2 in the Montgomery and Armstrong series. We met Bowen in the previous book, Never Seduce a Scot, this is his story.

Set in Scotland in times when women weren't always treated with love and respect, Genevieve McInnes has suffered cruelty and humiliation at the hands of Ian McHugh. 

It's by no means an easy road for Bowen and Genevieve to find their HEA, there's a lot of emotional turmoil and trust issues for them to work through.  At times I could have throttled Bowen but at the same I adored him.

If you love a brawny Scottish Highlander then I highly recommend Maya Banks, she’s an author on my auto-buy list and a huge favourite.
