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.

Crystal L's Thoughts:

Genevieve McInnes has endured things a woman should never have to endure. What makes her situation worse is that she had a promising future which was robbed from her by a man who seems to be evil to his core. Now that man is dead, but she's still disfigured with no promising future, except perhaps for the Abbey. After her inadvertent rescue by Bowen, his family and their alliances, she begs to be taken to an Abbey so that she can finally leave the McHugh Keep where she was held a prisoner, and mistreated badly by that clan.

Bowen is not sure what to do with the lass who is stunningly beautifully regardless of the hideous scar on her face. He wants to have a firm grasp on the newly acquired keep, its occupants, and understand what exactly was going on before he lets her go anywhere. But with what he'll discover on the journey, will he fall in love with poor Genevieve, or despise her for her actions?

Maya Banks has a way with women who have been through hell and back. This book was a shining example of that unique talent. Heartbreaking story that had me rooting for the heroine from beginning to end. It's a 4 wine glass toast and now I'll be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series!
