Description-
  • 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.

    "[Maya] Banks has written an emotionally taut Highlands romance. . . . Lush emotionalism, compelling characters and a moving story line will win romance fans."--Kirkus Reviews

    From the Paperback edition.

Excerpts-
  • Chapter 1

    "Do you ever wish but for a moment to go back in time?" Genevieve McInnis whispered as she stood in the window of the tiny tower room that had been appointed to her more than a year past.

    The summer sun was high and showed no signs of lowering in the sky, and yet she could sense darkness. Knew it was coming. The Montgomerys would not allow the injustice done to one of their own, and now the whole of the McHugh clan--or what was left of it--would pay the price for Ian McHugh's daring.

    She should be afraid, but she'd long ago accepted her fate. Her possible mortality. She didn't fear it as she once may have. There were worse things than death, as she'd discovered. Sometimes living took far more courage. Facing another day. Enduring. Those things took strength. Far more than dying.

    The wind picked up, blowing cool on her face, relieving the sting of the sun. Her question whispered softly in her ears, as if the wind had gathered it up and carried it back on its wings.

    If only she'd never met Ian McHugh. If only she'd stayed in her chamber that fateful day when he'd arrived at court and had become instantly obsessed with her.

    But his obsession hadn't been limited to her. He collected things. Women. They were objects he viewed as possessions. He was like a petulant child guarding his favorite toys. If he couldn't have her, then no man would.

    It was the same with Eveline Montgomery, a woman who, like Genevieve, had spurned Ian's advances. This time, however, he'd crossed the wrong clan, and he'd paid for it with his life. Graeme Montgomery had righted the wrong done against his wife and had spitted Ian on his sword in front of the whole of the McHugh clan.

    And now the entire clan waited with anxious worry for the return of the Montgomerys. Ian's father, Patrick, the laird--as laughable as that thought was--had fled only this morn, because he bore the knowledge that Graeme Montgomery would return to avenge his wife. As Genevieve had prayed that he would.

    Finally. Finally, she would have at least a hope of freedom.

    Patrick was no laird. Ian had run roughshod over his father from a very early age. Ian made the decisions. Ian bullied his father. Ian had ruled in Patrick's stead for years now. All that was left for it was for Patrick to step aside and name Ian as his successor.

    Only now the clan lay in ruins. Many had fled, avoiding the inevitable bloodbath that would surely occur. Others had stayed only because there was no place for them to go.

    Such was the case with Genevieve.

    Where would she go?

    To her family, she was dead. Believed killed in an ambush as her party made the journey to her betrothed. Ian McHugh had swept in, slaughtering every last man and woman accompanying her to her intended husband's holding. He'd borne Genevieve back to his own keep, vowing that no man save he would ever possess her.

    It was a vow he'd kept.

    She raised her hand to touch the scar marring her left cheek. She closed her eyes to prevent the sting of tears. There was naught crying did for the matter. She was long past the stage of tears and self-pity.

    When she'd rebuffed Ian's advances after her capture, as she'd done the first time they were introduced at court, his rage had known no bounds. He'd slashed her face with his knife, swearing before God that no man would ever again look upon her with desire.

    He was right. No man could look upon her now with anything but horror. She'd witnessed too many times the instant recoil when she turned her head and the scar came into view.

    And in the end it hadn't mattered that she'd refused Ian's advances, because he'd taken what he wanted,...
