Book Blog Tour Stop - Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks

Highlander Most Wanted


Mass Market Paperbacks: 368 pages
Publisher: Ballantine Books (March 19, 2013)

Maya Banks, the New York Times bestselling author of erotic romance, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance, has captivated readers with her steamy Scottish historical novels, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood. In Highlander Most Wanted, a reclusive woman content to live in the shadows shows a Highland warrior the true meaning of love.

Genevieve McInnis 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.

 I was enchanted with this novel.  The Scottish Highlands setting is breathtaking, the characters are intriguing and lively, and the story itself is filled with romance, a bit of fun, and a whole lot of action both in and out of the bedroom.

There is no mistaking that this tale has it's sensual side, and Maya Banks is tasteful in her descriptions of the lovers in action.

"Highlander Most Wanted" was the first book of Maya Banks that I've read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  This is the second book in Maya's "The Montgomerys and The Armstrongs" series, but I had no difficulty picking up on the story and falling right into the current tale.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys historical romance, sensual romance, romance set in Scotland, and anyone who enjoys a well-written tale.
