Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Can you have a romance in which the heroine has sworn off sex? You see, Maggie ingen Blar has only one wish, to stop a long-running Highland feud before it claims the lives of her beloved brothers. Since the men of her clan won't listen to reason, she's determined to find some other way to compel their cooperation. To that end, resourceful Maggie convinces her clanswomen to refuse their menfolk everything, from household chores to more personal attentions. The one thing she hadn't reckoned on was bold Braden MacAllister's attempt to persuade her to give up her bloodless battle plan in favor of enjoying his near-legendary sensual charms. If Maggie allows Braden to distract her from her goal, how can she expect her clanswomen to remain resolute? And while Braden has bedded many a bonnie lassie, he's known to have given his heart to none, and Maggie is determined not to make any separate peace with her longtime rival until she can set the terms for his complete surrender.

Meet the Author

New York Times bestselling author Kinley MacGregor lives a life of extraordinary danger...as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets, and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she can be found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than ten million copies of her books in print, in 26 countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with, too.

Writing as Kinley MacGregor and Sherrilyn Kenyon, she is the author of several series including: The Dark-Hunters, Brotherhood of the Sword, Lords of Avalon, and BAD. With an international, cult following, her books have appeared in the top three on the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestseller lists.

Read an Excerpt

Claiming the Highlander

Chapter One

London, during the reign of Henry II

Handsome as sin and more dangerous than the devil himself, Braden MacAllister had but one affliction in life.

He adored all women.

At a score and five years, he had claimed more hearts than anyone could count and charmed more women than there were stars in the heavens. It was said that on the hour of his birth, the midwife had been enthralled by the newborn′s playful air. The woman, who had helped bring over three score wee bairns into the world, had instantly proclaimed Braden a bane to any lass foolish enough to give her heart over to one such as he.

For the boy had the devil in him. ′Twas plain for any to see.

Braden himself didn′t know why women fascinated him so. He only knew that he adored them all -- young, old, single or married, beautiful or plain. It mattered not, for each woman possessed a special flame within her that he found irresistible, and in return, women were fascinated by him.

Wherever he went, feminine heads came together with gasps and giggles as they relayed his reputation to each other. Those who knew his bedroom skills firsthand lorded it over those who only knew him by rumor.

Braden always responded to the women he met with a roguish smile. Never was he too busy to stop along the way to pass a moment or two with a willing female.

Indeed, he lived for the sensual. Lived for the sound of soft, feminine sighs of pleasure whispered in his ear as he reveled in the giving of pleasure to his lover. He could never consider himself well sated until his partner had found her own satisfaction at least three or four times.

And Braden loved to be well sated.

His family claimed it was a terrible addiction he had.

For his life, he didn′t know what it was about women that captivated him so. Perhaps it was the smell of them, the feel of their soft, supple limbs sliding against his naked skin.

Nay, he decided, ′twas the taste of women he loved best.

And right now he was surrounded by three women who were vying for his attention.

The Ghent sisters.

Well, only two of them were still from Ghent; the other, Piety, had married Rufus of Nottingham the winter past. And though Braden liked the old earl a great deal, it really was a shame for such a vibrant young woman to be shackled to a man thrice her age. Especially when said man spent more time tending his hawks and hounds than he did doting on his beautiful bride.

Piety, in great contradiction to her name, had been making advances toward him ever since his arrival in England three months past to visit with his brother and swear homage for his English lands to King Henry II.

Ever one to avoid unpleasantness with the English when he could, Braden had deftly sidestepped the young woman′s seductive contrivances and machinations.

When he had received a letter earlier that day from Rufus requesting his presence to talk over some Scottish lands the earl was thinking of sellIng, Braden had thought little of it. Until he had arrived to find the three women in residence while the earl and his brothers had departed that very morning for France.

Braden′s first inclination had been to leave. But what mere mortal man could refuse such fruits of heaven when they were literally laid bare before him?

It was certainly more temptation than Braden could resist. Not that it took much in the way of temptation for a hedonist such as he.

If the women were content to seduce him, then he was certainly content to be seduced.

The three women pushed him down on the bed and were starting to make free use of his body for their pleasure. Delighted to let the ladies have their way with him, Braden relaxed and simply enjoyed what they offered.

"Milord," Patience purred as she dropped his dark blue surcoat to the floor. "Tell us again how you slew the Kilgarigon Dragon."

Prudence tugged at his right boot until she bared his stockinged foot. "I prefer the tale of how you dispatched that highwayman on your way to London."

Piety slid her hands over his thighs to the back of his hips. "And I prefer this tail, right here," she said as she grabbed two handfuls of his buttocks.

"Ah, ladies, ladies," he sighed contentedly. "Where shall I begin?"

Lifting her kirtle to gift him with a luscious view of her bare bottom, Piety moved to straddle his waist. She wiggled her hips suggestively against his, then settled the yellow material down around her. She peeled back a portion of her kirtle to expose the curvaceous swell of her well-rounded bosom.

"Why not begin here?" she said, brushing her hand over the top of her left breast.

"Aye, that looks like a fine place to start," Braden said huskily.

But before he could oblige the countess, the door to the room burst open.

"Piety!" came the outraged bellow.

Braden propped himself up on his elbows to see Rufus standing in the doorway, his lips grim. The earl′s face was redder than the embers of the fire, which made his well-trimmed white beard all the more apparent.

Braden growled low in his throat. Couldn′t a man have a moment′s worth of fun without some angry father, husband or brother rushing in and demanding his blood?

Well, if you′d marry the woman first, brother, you′d not have that problem. Braden flinched at Sin′s familiar words in his head.

Och now, what did his brother know of it? Sin spent just as much time avoiding holy matrimony as Braden did.

Piety scooted off his lap with an indignant shriek while the other two women made haste for a nearby corner. The light of the...

    A tale of a Brotherhood born in suffering

    This "Brotherhood of the Sword" series is an emotional thrill ride from beginning to end. Be sure you have the rest in your library before this one ends, or you will regret not knowing what happens next!

    Relocate Lysistrata from Ancient Greece to medieval Scotland

    During the reign of Henry II, Maggie inglen Blar leads a sheet revolution to end the fighting in the Kilgarigon, Scotland area. Maggie and the other women are tired of their men feuding with Robby MacDouglas and his clan. No man will be fed or bed until peace is procured. <P>Braden MacAllister returns home from England to witness the appetite downfall of his brothers and the other males of their clan. He decides to end the foolishness using his best skills at seducing a woman. His target is Maggie, but she rejects his kisses to Braden¿s amazement. Both have secrets. He agrees with her goal and she has always loved him. As they play a game of cat and mouse, he falls in love with her, but will she believe him with his womanizing reputation and her idealistic objective standing between them? <P> Relocate Lysistrata from Ancient Greece to medieval Scotland to understand the underlying theme in CLAIMING THE HIGHLANDER. The invigorating story line is amusing yet enables the reader to feel they are in the Highlands during the reign of Henry II. The lead couple is a delightful pair playing Spencer Johnson and Kenneth Blanchard¿s ¿Who Moved My Cheese?¿ enabling readers to fully enjoy Kinley MacGregor¿s opening tale in her MacAllister brothers¿ trilogy. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Claimed my Heart!

    I started this series with this book and it captured my heart and I just had to go back and start with the first one and so on! I loved this book especially from the beginning it captures your interest with Braden and then the Macallister Brothers in all! The series in a whole is AWESOME! I recommend all of Kinley Macgregor's books and her sir name Sherrilyn Kenyon's books as well. She takes you places you never thought to go. :o)

    great book!

    i just finished this book today and absolutely loved it! a story of what true love is really about and how people should stick together. Maggie and Braden were a PERFECT couple and the storyline went perfectly into place. though it was mostly how the two came to realize how much they couldnt live without the other, and the family feud not coming up till the end as it was in the beginning it was REALLY REALLY good! this is my 62nd romance novel and was worth a read!

    PITY

    HAD THIS BEEN THE FIRST BOOK I READ FROM THIS AUTHOR I NEVER WOULD HAVE READ ANOTHER. I LOOKED FORWORD TO THE READ BECAUSE ALL THE OTHERS WERE 4-5 STAR WORTHY. FROM COVER TO COVER THIS IS SILLY DIALOGE IN AN EFFORT TO BE HUMOROUS-THE EFFORT WAS WASTED. THERE IS A MIX OF SCOTTISH AND CURRENT DAY GRAMMER-ALL IN ONE SENTENCE.WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO STICK WITH ONE OR THE OTHER. I NEVER KNEW IF I WAS READING A CONTEMPORARY OR HISTORICAL PERIOD BOOK.FINALLY-THIS IS A TOTAL TAKE-OFF ON THE ANCIENT LISESTRATA STORY-2 FIGHTING CLANS AND THE WOMEN REFUSING TO FEED OR BED THE FIGHTERS.IF THIS BOOK WILL BE A FIRST TIME READ PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR-READ THE AUTHOR'S OTHER BOOKS BEFORE YOU READ THIS ONE.

    A True Gem

    If only I could Claim a Highlander as Maggie did!! I LOVED this book! I could not put it down and was stunned when I was on the last page! Braden was oooolala. The relationship between he and Maggie is funny & heartwarming. I loved Maggie's strength yet her vunerability. So many times we overlook something wonderful when it is right in front of us! And often if we want something and are patient it may come to us. Maggie and Braden's story. Enjoy!
