This is an adult historical fiction romance novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four Bowen Hearts)
Book Summary
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.
My Review
If you like romance and historical romances, this series is for you. I’m not always looking for a straight predictable HEA read, where everything is for sure going to end up as a happy ending. For me it takes some of the mystery out of the story. But there are occasions when I do want that.
And here we have it. Don’t get me wrong. This book isn’t straight roses, there is plenty of angst and heartache, and I really like the heroine in this story. She isn’t a hardass but she isn’t soft either. She’s been dealt a hard hand but takes the blows like a champ and keeps moving forward.
This story has heart and guts and I enjoyed it. I look forward to more in this series.
Audio Review
Kirsten Potter did an awesome job with both male and female voices and the accents too. I will definitely listen to more of her narrations.
Overall, I really liked it.
