This is the second book in the Highlander series, and a villain from the first book "Captured By the Highlander" returns as the hero. Deftly written as I was immediately drawn in, and quickly ended up rooting for both the hero and the feisty heroine, even though I had reservations about the hero at the beginning. Great characters--I finished it in one night and looking forward to the third. Think it's due out in October. I'll be waiting!

I read Ms. MacLean's second book Claimed by a Highlander and really enjoyed reading it.
This story was fantastic from beginning to end. I was hooked from the first page and could not put it down. Without reservation, I recommend this book if you love stories set in Scotland.
You will live a great adventure! You will not be disappointed by this book. I will definitely be reading more books by Ms. MacLean.

More Highland romance done really well! March 30 2011
By Cynthia Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'll be the first to admit to being picky about Highlander romance novels (Julie Garwood is a hard act to follow!). I'm loving this series by Julianne MacLean, though! This is the second book, the first being Captured by the Highlander, and if possible I'd read them in order. This book is strong enough to stand on its own but having the history added something.
I was set out somewhat not to like the hero of this story, he had betrayed his closest friend in the previous book (for a good reason in his mind). Angus MacDonald was exiled from his clan for the betrayal and his home was eventually given to another after his father died. The daughter of the new Laird, Lady Gwendolen is prepared to defend her home after the death of her father, when Angus "The Lion" MacDonald comes along to overtake his former home. As a way of uniting the two clans, Angus declares he will marry her and their heirs will be Laird in the future.
She's resistant in the beginning to caring for a man who took her home, he's reluctant to actually begin to love his wife as he thinks it will make him weak. Through various twists and turns we get our happy ending, but it's pretty entertaining getting there. Definitely a book worth reading if you like Highlander romances!

EXCELLENT BOOK!!!! April 7 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
To be honest I did not want to read this book based on the character Angus and I did not really enjoy the first book but I had to know how Angus was going to redeem himself with Duncan. This book was better than the first book and I read it all day. The lead characters in the book came together so well and the book just seemed to flow. The plot was well thought out and did not seem far fetched. Sometimes authors can drag out the lead characters coming together so long that a reader will lose interested. This book just worked from all angles! EXCELLENT

Not as good as the first one... May 16 2011
By Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second in MacLean's Highlander trilogy. Like the first one, this also involves Angus MacDonald, who with his father's death has become the head of the MacDonald clan. The story takes place in 1718, two years after Captured by a Highlander. After having been banished by his father for betraying the Butcher, a hero of Scotland and his best friend, Angus returns after he learns of his father's death to regain his family's castle, Kinloch, that was taken over by the Macwen clan with permission of the British Crown. Angus storms the gate, retakes Kinloch and declares he will have Gwendolen MacEwen, the daughter of the old laird, to wife to merge the clans. Initially Gwendolen fights the idea but then warms to the passions between them, and agrees to become his wife. Meanwhile, as the affection grows between Angus and Gwendolen, her brother Murdoch is still at large and is expected to attack any day and Angus' former lover, the "Oracle," arrives to foretell his death by hanging.

What I didn't like: 90% of this story takes place in Kinloch castle and most of that in one bedchamber (there's a fair amount of sex which actually got a bit boring by the end). While the uprising in 1715 was mentioned, it really was only as background. There wasn't much history in this historical, though the setting was the Highlands. The main characters engaged in too much inner angst for my taste, which led to long passages of narrative which I found provided no new information, and some of which I skipped (never a good sign). Lastly, some of the dialog seemed inane. I finished it but just barely. It was easy to put down. I am not recommending this one and not buying the third in the series when it comes out. I know MacLean can write well and some of the other reviewers have said her earlier works are among their favorites, but like another reviewer, I was disappointed with this one.

A Suspenseful Scottish historical romance Oct. 21 2011
By Sally Pink Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
MacLean pens a story filled with adventure, suspense and romance. Angus MacDonald storms the gates of Kinloch Castle intent on claiming his family's home, only now the MacEwens are there and in order to claim the heart of the castle, he'll need to earn Gwendolen MacEwen's love.
Set in 1718 Scotland, Gwendolen's family was given Kinloch Castle for their support of the English Hanoverian King. Unfortunately, her father has recently passed, leaving the castle vulnerable. Enter Angus MacDonald. His father previously held the castle. He storms the gates and asserts his right as the new laird. He also announces his intention to wed Gwendolen.

The MacEwen lass is mortified by Angus' plan, but strikes a deal to marry him to keep the peace when she witnesses his leniency toward her clan. Still, she betrays him by sending a letter to the local English garrison asking for help.

Angus is furious to learn that his intended betrayed him, but he holds firm to his promise not to bed her until their wedding night.

Despite all the initial anger and hurt between Angus and Gwen, there's no denying the raw, primal attraction between the two. Gwen softens toward her intended when she observes little acts of compassion from him. Angus awakens Gwen's sensual side and soon learns that he enjoys his wife's lovemaking. Angus and Gwen come together over common ground, but can they build the trust needed to keep Kinloch from falling into the wrong hands?

MacLean grabs the reader in the opening chapter with a suspenseful and intense fight and the plot never lets up. The vivid descriptions and authentic dialogue make Angus' and Gwen's story spring into life.

The most enjoyable part of the novel is the rich characterization of Angus and Gwen along with a strong supporting cast.

Angus is a warrior who has made mistakes. He doesn't think he can atone for them, but Gwen's growing affection give him something he's never known before - hope. The scene with Angus and Gwen in the chapel allows Angus to really grow as a character as well as lets the couple shine romantically.

Gwen is proud and haunty. Angus shows her unexpected compassion which softens her edges. Gwen must learn to trust and prove to Angus she means what she says.

The love scenes are sensual and romantic and allow for Gwen and Angus to really connect as a couple. "Claimed by the Highlander," will leave the reader breathless. You can't put it down.

Romance readers will be enthralled with mega-talented Julianne MacLean's, CLAIMED BY THE HIGHLANDER, Book #2 in her fiery Highlander Trilogy for St. Martin's Press April 2011. In 1718, Kinloch Castle, the Scottish Highlands, Lady Gwendolen MacEwen is determined to fight with her men against the invader, Angus "The Lion" MacDonald despite her mother, Onora's advice to surrender to him. Angus has come with his cousin, Lachlan, the Laird of War and army of Highlanders to battle for his family's castle that was taken from his late father for being a Jacobite trader to the English crown. The castle had been awarded to Gwendolen's recently deceased father when he was alive via Letters of Fire and Sword by King George and now rightfully belongs to her brother, Murdoch, who has been away indefinitely on the continent. The turquoise-eyed beauty is no match for the fierce, tawny-haired Lion and Angus quickly reclaims his birthright. Angus also demands Gwen become his wife to unite the two clans. However, she insists on several conditions including fairness and compensation for her people and wedding before bedding her. Angus agrees to Gwen's terms if she'll support his rule in public and in private. However, Gwen goes too far when she also requests Angus keep her family's heraldry up in the great hall which angers him greatly and he takes her immediately to bed where their negotiations continue! However, the feisty Gwen is not willing to submit easily and it will take all Angus' skills as a lover to get her to melt in his arms. But first they must deal with her flirtatious mother, errant brother and a secret enemy, who plots to betray them. CLAIMED BY THE HIGHLANDER will claim readers' hearts with its great sparring between this well-matched pair both in and out of the bedroom! Julianne MacLean, whose forte is her wonderful finely drawn characters has outdone herself in this winning Scottish historical! One can hardly wait for what Ms. MacLean has in store for the ending to this enthralling trilogy, SEDUCED BY THE HIGHLANDER coming October 2011!
