A small town belonging to the McLeren clan has been raided by the Neighboring McBoyd clan. Looking for revenge Torin the Laird of the McLeren's and his men discover that the daughter of the McBoyd Clan, Shannon, has to be wed into the Atholl family, seeking to replace the dead king, tying strong alliances between the families plotting to kill the dead king's only son. In order to prevent such an alliance Torin decides to steel the future bride and to bring her to his Land. There she will suffer the hatred of different clan members, but also the seduction of the Laird and the threat of an eventual death sentence being a traitors daughter.
Day after day people start liking her, seeing her as a victim of her brutal and heartless father.
And night after night Torin and Shannon surrender to their desires. They have however to find a way to save her from her punishment for being born a McBoyd.
So this is a love story about clans, political manipulation, tenderness, acceptance, friendship, honesty, brutality, everyday life and the statue of women in these times.
I don't know if historically everything is correct, as a storyteller Mrs. Wine however knows how to create a world filled with many realistic detail, creting a very lively story.
I liked the characters and have to admit that I liked Torin more than Shannon. He was so sweet patient and tender that the whole love story became wonderful to read. Many of the historical facts are real and the details about highlander's everyday life during the 15th century were quite enjoyable and very interesting in order to understand the context of the Love story.
This book also introduces some heroes of the following books, as this is the first volume of a series.
I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I did, I already started the second volume Highland Hellcat and it is a real pleasure to dive into this story of yet another stolen bride.

I've only read one other of Ms. Wine's stories and it was a short one, but I liked her style and so I went and bought this book and a few others. It was an engaging read and I was touched by the emotions and relationship between Torin and Shannon. The love scenes were sexy and very hot, but well written too. There were so many fabulous characters, then those few I loved to hate. Just a fantastic story overall, and one that was never dull! I can't wait to read about the other lairds and would definitely recommend this book. Ms. Wine is a great author who should be on every historical romance lovers to-read list =)
There is one thing I wanted to state. In the description it states "Shannon McBoyd decides to use her captor to experience passion for the first time, and then to destroy him." That is not a true statement. She never wants to destroy him. I have no idea why that is even there.
Sex content high.
