Though betrothed to another, Aimil cannot deny her startling desire for the man who holds her captive. . .

Parlan MacGuin knows well his reputation as a fierce warrior; he uses it to claim land and lovers. But beautiful Aimil is a different type of conquest. Now Parlan feels an unfamiliar longing for the woman he keeps at ransom as their forbidden passion threatens to spark an unstoppable blood feud--or forever fill their hearts. . .

There comes a point in every HH novel where the here to for somewhat rational heroine does something so stupid you have to wonder why there is only one homicidal maniac trying to kill her. She usually does something so dumb you wonder why she didn't just paint a bulls eye on her chest. This novel does not disappoint. So why do I like her novels? They're entertaining. Like junk food ---------why explain french fries or gummy bears. Just go with it.

In 1500 in Scotland, Aimil and her brother Leith are riding the moors when the ferocious MacGuin clan captures them. Their leader Black Parlan holds the siblings for ransom as he expects her betrothed and her family to pay a fortune, and plans to make her horse Elfking his. Aimil is frightened of the Laird because of the rumors of his dining on babies. However, except for his desire to steal her steed, she quickly finds her warden is a caring leader; nothing at all like his reputation claims.

Aimil refuses to give him her beloved horse as he demands. He understands the love of a good horse so he offers her an alternative choice; she replaces her horse as his ride. As they battle to love, her fiancé plots to kidnap her and his former lover unites with Aimil¿s former intended.

This is a reprint of an early 1990s novel (called ELFKING¿S LADY) that showcases Hannah Howell¿s talent before she became the Queen of Highland historicals. The lead couple is a fun entry ad their gender war over her horse is amusing but turns warm when they kiss. Although the villains should have known better than to try an abduction with Parlan¿s reputation; fans of the author will enjoy one of her fine earlier tales.

The story line was interesting but, i was dissapointed at how much it was dragged out and repititious. I don't think i will purchase more of her books. This book needs to be re-edited since its so long winded. I dont recommend it.

On page 166 and he hasnt sent his men after her yet!!!?. Good story so far but why couldnt he have asked her to marry him. Why hasnt he kicked caterina out of his house yet? He ought to have known that she was capable of anything and he still let her stay there while he was away on his trip. Am rating 2stars because parlan is so dense and brainless.
