Image of Highlander Unchained: A Novel (Macleods of Skye)

The latest addition to the Highlander series is a high-spirited captive/captor tale that sets the pages on fire with delectable repartee and simmering sexual tension. McCarty has been building a fan base that is destined to grow as readers become addicted to her braw heroes, empowered heroines and quick-paced love stories.

An ancient curse is destroying the MacLeans. Only by marrying a MacLeod can Lachlan break the curse. He's reduced to kidnapping Flora MacLeod before she elopes with another. Carrying the high- spirited lass off to his keep seems an easy task, but getting her to cooperate is a different story.

Flora will not marry a man not of her choosing and certainly not a MacLean. Lachlan may outwardly appear barbarian, but his family adores him and he would never harm Flora even as their battle of wills fuels the flames of mutual desire into an inferno. It is inevitable they join forces in bed and out and in a true marriage, not only to annihilate the curse, but to bring peace to the Highlands. (Ballantine, Oct., 380 pp., $6.99)
