Lady Amelia Sutherland would rather die than surrender to a man like Duncan MacLean. He is the fiercest warrior of this clan-her people’s sworn enemy-and tonight he is standing over her bed. Eyes blazing, muscles taut, and battle axe gleaming, MacLean has come to kill Amelia’s fiance. But once he sees the lovely, innocent Amelia, he decides to take her instead...
Stealing the young bride-to-be is the pefect revenge against the man who murdered Duncan’s one true love. But Lady Amelia turns out to be more than a pawn of vengeance and war. this brave, beautiful woman touches something deep in Duncan’s soul that is even more powerful than a warrior’s fury. but when Amelia begins to fall in love with her captor-and surrenders in his arms-the real battle begins...



This is my first time trying a book by Julianne MacLean; I loved the writing style, the storyline and the flow of Captured by the Highlander. I started reading this early one morning and couldn’t quit until I had I read it all. The surprises added to the story were marvelous and the action was tense at times. I was very impressed with the author and I will be reading more of her books in the near future.

I liked reading both the hero and heroine. Amelia is brave and Duncan is somewhat of a brute, but they find an attraction for each other that neither one can stop.

I also liked the other hot highlander men and can’t wait to read their stories. I highly recommend this book.


  1. Can I be captured by a Highlander? Please LOL :)

    Actually this book is on my radar--it looks like it is right up my historical romance loving heart alley!

  2. Another book to add to the list. I can't resist a good highlander story. Glad to hear you liked this book because I had been eying it for awhile now.
