True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Book Review: Highlander Untamed by Monica McCarty

Book 1 in The MacLeods of Skye Trilogy

BLURB: Rory MacLeod is a bold and powerful Highland Chief with only one allegiance–to his clan. He vows revenge against the rival MacDonald clan, though duty demands a handfast marriage to Isabel MacDonald–a bride he does not want and has no intention of keeping. But Rory couldn’t have anticipated the captivating woman who challenges his steely control, and unleashes the untamed passion simmering beneath his fierce exterior.

Blessed with incomparable beauty, Isabel MacDonald is prepared to use every means possible–including seduction–to uncover her husband’s most guarded secrets. Instead Rory awakens Isabel’s deepest desires and her sweetest fantasies. Now Isabel has found the happiness she’s always dreamed of with the very man she must betray, and discovers that passion can be far more dangerous than revenge.

REVIEW: This book was phenomenal! I devoured it and can't wait to sink my teeth into the rest of the series as soon as I possibly can. For her debut novel the writing was truly amazing most authors aren't this good from the start but Mrs. McCarty has captured the true feel and essence of the Scottish Highlands and their proud and noble people, and woven a tale that you don't want to miss. So if you are a big fan of Scottish romances, like I am you do not want to miss this one.

Rory is the strong and honorable chief of the proud Macleod Clan. The Macleod's and the MacDonald's have been adversaries in a long, bitter, and bloody feud for years. And when King James tries to put a halt to the violence by wedding Rory to Isabel MacDonald in a handfast marriage things quickly turn more than complicated for both Rory and Isabel.

Isabel has been coerced by her family into using her handfast marriage to the Macleod as a means to spy on them and find a way into Dunvegan Castle as well as find the location of the famous Fairy Flag that is a powerful talisman to the Macleod clan. But what neither of them counted on was the passion that would ignite between them right from the start. The more that she learns about Rory and her new family and friends at Dunvegan, the more the thought of betraying them becomes unbearable. Will Isabel betray the man and people whom she has come to love more than her next breath? Will Rory be able to let go and let himself love and trust his new wife or will his sense of duty to his clan and other responsibilities end up tearing the two lovers apart.

Great memorable characters and a story that you won't soon forget go get this one today!
