Overview


The ruthless enforcer of Scotland's most powerful clan, Jamie Campbell will use any means necessary to vanquish lawlessness and unrest among the feuding Highland clans. Seduction is a game as easily played as subterfuge, but when Jamie poses as a suitor to a rival clan's daughter in order to expose treason, the line between duty and pleasure is suddenly blurred. Ebony-haired, ruby-lipped Caitrina Lamont defies him,
denies him, and arouses him like no other woman.

Caitrina has no intention of forsaking her beloved father and doting brothers for a husband—especially a hated Campbell. But Jamie's raw, sensual strength and searing kiss melt her resistance. When her idyllic world is shattered, Caitrina's only hope to save her clan lies in the arms of
Jamie Campbell, the enemy she holds accountable for its ruin. Can their tenuous truce, born in the velvet darkness of passionate nights, forge a love as strong as the sword that rules the Highlands?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

A marriage between Caitrina Lamont and Jamie Campbell might be good politics, but the last thing Caitrina wants is to marry the brutally rigid, infamous "Highland Enforcer," especially after his brother slaughters her clan and destroys her home. But neither can deny the electricity that sizzles between them, or the storms they must weather and the love that grows once they are wed. Sexy, full of action, and realistically violent, this story of 17th-century Scotland touches on issues of family loyalty and duty and expertly kicks off McCarty's back-to-back "Clan Campbell" trilogy. McCarty, who lives in California, has written several other well-regarded Scottish romances (e.g., Highlander Unchained).

    terrific character driven historical romance

    In 1608 on the Isle of Bute, off Scotland, Lord Lamont hosts a Highland gathering at his Ascog Castle in hopes of finding an acceptable husband for his not always biddable daughter Caitrina. He hates using his offspring as pawn, but feels for the sake of the clan¿s safety he must arrange a marriage that brings a strong alliance with it. She understands the need and accepts her role, but prays that her fiancé is not a Campbell; a clan the Lamont tribe has feuded with for years.<BR/><BR/>Due to the pleading of her younger brother Brian to rescue a kitten from a tree, Caitrina climbs up, but her sibling leaves once she gives him the feline before helping her down. The Privy Council¿s enforcer Jamie Campbell arrives in time to help the damsel in distress out on a limb; that is after taking his time as he admired the view. In spite of the clans¿ disputes and Caitrina¿s trepidations, Jamie marries her. However, whereas he sees the world as black and white, she sees a rainbow. They fall in love, but their marriage remains fragile as he remains inflexible unable to understand that chastisement is not always the best response to right a wrong. When his beloved almost dies, Jamie begins to comprehend how fortunate he is to have Caitrina as his wife and to have her love as he begins to understand justice without passion leads to injustice.<BR/><BR/>The opening of Monica McCarty¿s latest Highland saga, The Campbells, is a terrific character driven historical romance that showcases a great author cleverly using a seventeen century setting to make a point about modern day justice. Love is not enough as Jamie as the enforcer never cares about circumstances when he doles out punishment in the name of justice. Caitrina is his opposite as she feels strongly all the pertinent information needs to be considered before determining the best fairest course of action. Fans will relish their dispute over what justice truly is.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    I wish i could have one of them!!!

    This story is exceptional as Monica's other trilogy has been. It does not repeat the style or pattern which is good and keeps you turning the pages. I finished it in 1 day! i swear i could not even sleep till i had finished it! Jamie is very HOT! I LOVE him! Caitrina is a strong character and makes me like her all the more for it. This is a more than just enjoyable read you will not be disappointed. The story takes a very sharp and unexpected turn that you do not see coming. You will savor every last word of it!

    Very readable. Good series

    I like her books and the series. You pretty much know how the story will go but I like how she creates the feeling between the characters. I also likes how she will tell what the woman is feeling and then show it from the man's point of view on the same scene. Good escapism.

    Drawn out...

    This was too long in my opinion. Eventually I had to start skimming. For sure not as good as others that she has written - the highland guard series is excellent!

    Great Historical Romance

    Caitrina "Caiti" Lamont is the spoiled daughter of the Chief of their clan with three loving brothers. She's content with her "princess" lifestyle and even okay with her father trying to match her up with a husband at the highland festival being held at their castle. Yet, the one man who captures her interest the most is a mystery and frustratingly tells her "no" unlike every other male in her life. Life is good with a few stolen kisses until the long-hated Campbell clan attacks one night and brutally murders her family & burns her home. Now, the grieving Caitrina is staying/hiding with her aunt and uncle until Jamie Campbell, the cute mystery man from before, comes back into her life proposing marriage for clan alliance. She accepts solely for the reason of gaining her family lands back, but before she knows it . . . love begins to change her view on the world.

    Caiti comes off very young and naive in the beginning of the Highland Warrior but grows up a lot throughout the story. She still isn't my favorite female protagonist throughout the Campbell trilogy, but she does have some great character development and you feel her emotional change during the death of her family. Jamie of the other hand is quite sure of himself and though I didn't really notice much of a change in him within the story, he was very loyal to Caiti and open to making their marriage work.

    Near the end of the book, there were many scenes of the two immaturely fighting over their beliefs/feelings/etc that it became quite tedious to read after a while, but even though everything resolved itself in time for the last page - I still felt as if something was missing from the tale. I did enjoy that the story preached loyalty (to not only ones partner, but family as well) as being just as important as love (i.e. don't make ultimatums!), which is a theme you don't find too often in romances but was surprisingly nice in this one.

    Check out the rest of the Campbell trilogy:
    Book # 2 - Highland Outlaw
    Book # 3 - Highland Scoundrel

    Likes: The silly ways that Jamie could easily get under Caitrina's skin in the beginning of the story (ex: kitten incident, archery competition, etc.)

    Dislikes: The "honeymoon stage" (aka numerous sex scenes) near the end of the story became pretty consistent every other page and almost eclipsed the concluding plot. Don't get me wrong, I love the love-scenes. . . but it was almost too much for my taste and about the 4th to 5th time . . . I began skipping ahead.

    entertaining, exciting page turner!

    This book made me stop and think what would I do in the same situation. Monica has yet to let me down, her writing compells the reader to never put the book down. She has quickly moved to the top on my favorites list!

    A really good read

    I have read all of her books now and really like her style. The history is well researched and I love that she explains it as well as where she gets her characters at the end. The characters feel real and very engaging.

    This book was the first book in this series I read and after that I felt I had to read them all. From the first to the last page, I was drawn in completely. Oh and the romantic, intimate bits are great. Very well written, especially the way she tells much of the story from both main characters.

    I look forward to reading more of her work.

    Loved this book!

    I don't usually read straight up romance with no paranormal spin but this book was recommended on a book addict blog that I follow so I decided to trust their judgement and boy...they were right!. This book was full of history,romance,happiness and complete sadness. It left me wanting a highlander of my very own. I will definitely read the next story.
