NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Maya Banks, the bestselling author of erotic romance, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance, has captivated readers with her steamy Scottish historical novels, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood. In Highlander Most Wanted, a reclusive woman content to live in the shadows shows a Highland warrior the true meaning of love.

Genevieve McInnis is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen’s rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress—something warm, wicked, and tempting.

Bowen seizes his enemy’s keep, unprepared for the brooding and reclusive woman who captures his heart. He’s enchanted by her fierce determination, her unusual beauty, and her quiet, unfailing strength. But wooing her will take more than a seasoned seducer’s skill. For loving Genevieve, he discovers, means giving her back the freedom that was stolen from her—even if it means losing her forever.

“[Maya] Banks has written an emotionally taut Highlands romance. . . . Lush emotionalism, compelling characters and a moving story line will win romance fans.”—Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
When Scottish warrior Bowen Montgomery enters an enemy keep, he is surprised to find that the bravest person there is a mistreated captive of the clan, and the more he learns about the compelling, wounded Genevieve McInnis, the more sure he is that he's met his match—and his mate. After vanquishing the McHughs as an act of reprisal for abducting Laird Graeme Montgomery's wife, the Montgomery clan takes over the McHugh keep, which most of the McHugh warriors have abandoned, including the laird, Patrick McHugh. Ian, Patrick's spoiled, malevolent son, was responsible for the abduction and was killed in the rescue campaign. Bowen Montgomery, Graeme's brother, has been left in charge of the keep and its survivors. He is intrigued by a young woman who often takes charge in the midst of chaos but is obviously disdained by the McHugh clan members. As Bowen takes measure of the situation, he realizes that Genevieve was also abducted by Ian and has been held captive for a year, despite being the only child of the laird of another clan. Sexually and physically abused by Ian and despised by his clan, Genevieve still speaks in their defense, begging for their safety and well-being, and asks only for the chance to be delivered to a convent where she may live in peace. As events play out, Genevieve proves herself to be smart, brave, skilled and true-hearted, despite everything that's happened to her. Bowen falls in love with her but worries that she'll never be happy until she reconciles with her family, who believes she's dead—and whom she is too ashamed to contact. Banks has written an emotionally taut Highlands romance with a remarkably alpha-yet-perceptive-and-sweet hero and a heroine who has issues but overcomes them with the help of her perfect champion. A slight quibble with the credibility of the first love scene, given Genevieve's recent traumatizing experiences, and a slightly rushed feeling to the ending, does not ultimately impact the success of the book. Lush emotionalism, compelling characters and a moving storyline will win romance fans.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1

“Do you ever wish but for a moment to go back in time?” Genevieve McInnis whispered as she stood in the window of the tiny tower room that had been appointed to her more than a year past.

The summer sun was high and showed no signs of lowering in the sky, and yet she could sense darkness. Knew it was coming. The Montgomerys would not allow the injustice done to one of their own, and now the whole of the McHugh clan—or what was left of it—would pay the price for Ian McHugh’s daring.

She should be afraid, but she’d long ago accepted her fate. Her possible mortality. She didn’t fear it as she once may have. There were worse things than death, as she’d discovered. Sometimes living took far more courage. Facing another day. Enduring. Those things took strength. Far more than dying.

The wind picked up, blowing cool on her face, relieving the sting of the sun. Her question whispered softly in her ears, as if the wind had gathered it up and carried it back on its wings.

If only she’d never met Ian McHugh. If only she’d stayed in her chamber that fateful day when he’d arrived at court and had become instantly obsessed with her.

But his obsession hadn’t been limited to her. He collected things. Women. They were objects he viewed as possessions. He was like a petulant child guarding his favorite toys. If he couldn’t have her, then no man would.

It was the same with Eveline Montgomery, a woman who, like Genevieve, had spurned Ian’s advances. This time, however, he’d crossed the wrong clan, and he’d paid for it with his life. Graeme Montgomery had righted the wrong done against his wife and had spitted Ian on his sword in front of the whole of the McHugh clan.

And now the entire clan waited with anxious worry for the return of the Montgomerys. Ian’s father, Patrick, the laird—as laughable as that thought was—had fled only this morn, because he bore the knowledge that Graeme Montgomery would return to avenge his wife. As Genevieve had prayed that he would.

Finally. Finally, she would have at least a hope of freedom.

Patrick was no laird. Ian had run roughshod over his father from a very early age. Ian made the decisions. Ian bullied his father. Ian had ruled in Patrick’s stead for years now. All that was left for it was for Patrick to step aside and name Ian as his successor.

Only now the clan lay in ruins. Many had fled, avoiding the inevitable bloodbath that would surely occur. Others had stayed only because there was no place for them to go.

Such was the case with Genevieve.

Where would she go?

To her family, she was dead. Believed killed in an ambush as her party made the journey to her betrothed. Ian McHugh had swept in, slaughtering every last man and woman accompanying her to her intended husband’s holding. He’d borne Genevieve back to his own keep, vowing that no man save he would ever possess her.

It was a vow he’d kept.

She raised her hand to touch the scar marring her left cheek. She closed her eyes to prevent the sting of tears. There was naught crying did for the matter. She was long past the stage of tears and self-pity.

When she’d rebuffed Ian’s advances after her capture, as she’d done the first time they were introduced at court, his rage had known no bounds. He’d slashed her face with his knife, swearing before God that no man would ever again look upon her with desire.

He was right. No man could look upon her now with anything but horror. She’d witnessed too many times the instant recoil when she turned her head and the scar came into view.

And in the end it hadn’t mattered that she’d refused Ian’s advances, because he’d taken what he wanted, over and over, until she had no defense against him. No strength. No power. Just numb resignation.

She hated herself for that. Shame and humiliation were her constant companions, and now that he was dead she wanted only to be free of this place.

But where would she go?

Indeed, where would she go?

She closed her eyes, willing her anxious heart to stop tightening in her chest. Dread was squeezing her breathless, and she knew she was on borrowed time. Her fate—and judgment—awaited her.

The door to the tiny prison that had served as her chamber flew open, and Taliesan limped heavily toward her, her face a grimace of pain and fright.

“Whatever are we to do?” Taliesan whispered. “Surely we are doomed. The Montgomery laird will never have mercy on us. Not after what Ian and his father did to the Montgomery lass.”

Taliesan was cousin to the McHugh laird’s late wife. The entire McHugh clan consisted of distant relations and a band of misfits that had been pulled into the clan after being cast out of their own. She was the only friendly face in a sea of animosity that emanated from the other clansmen.

Genevieve never understood what she’d done to encourage such hatred toward her. She certainly wasn’t here of her own volition. And the rest of the clan well knew it. She’d done no harm to a single McHugh, though the same could not be said for her.

She winced as the words whore and harlot echoed in her ears. The insults were hurled at her on a regular basis, and she’d hardened herself to the pain and humiliation they caused.

She was what Ian McHugh had made her. Nothing more. She wouldn’t bear the blame for the actions of another. Nor could she spend the rest of her life languishing in regret for what hadn’t been her choosing.

“Have you heard of their approach?” she asked Taliesan.

Taliesan nodded, her eyes darkening further in dread. “Aye, I have. The watchman bore word barely five minutes ago. The Montgomery army approaches, but ’tis worse than we could have imagined, for the Armstrong army accompanies them. They come united.”

“Sweet Jesu,” Genevieve whispered in horror. “They mean to kill us all.”

’Twas the last thing Genevieve had ever wanted. Aye, she’d dreamed of Ian’s death. A long, horrible death, and she’d been cheated of that when Graeme Montgomery ran Ian through with his sword. His death was far too quick and merciful for the manner of man he was.

She whispered a heartfelt prayer that her sins wouldn’t be the death of them all. All she wanted was a chance. An opportunity to be free. She wanted to live instead of existing in a constant state of fear and humiliation. ’Twas not so much to ask for, was it?

“What do we do, Genevieve?” Taliesan asked in a voice hoarse with fear.

Genevieve squared her shoulders, her spine stiffening with resolve. And pride. “We must see to the women and the children. The men will have to face the consequences of the laird’s foolhardiness. ’Tis naught to be done about it except throw ourselves on the mercy of the Montgomerys and Armstrongs and pray they are indeed merciful.”

Genevieve swept past Taliesan, and when she stepped just outside the door she turned, her voice cracking like a whip.

“Come, now. Let us gather the others. If we are to face our doom, let it be with pride. Pride that Ian and his father failed to demonstrate. If the men of this clan won’t do justice to their name, then ’tis left to the women to stand up.”

Taliesan’s own features tightened and her chin notched upward. “Aye, you are right.”

Genevieve slowed her pace to match Taliesan’s awkward gait and pulled the hood of her cloak over her head to hide her face.

She would gather the women and children of the clan into one chamber, and then she would appeal to the sensibilities of the Montgomery leader.

It occurred to her that she owed this clan nothing. That, even now, she should be fleeing and taking advantage of her only chance for the one thing that had been denied her.

Freedom.

But she had no place to go. No sanctuary. No coin or food on which to survive.

Mayhap . . . Mayhap the Montgomery laird would be merciful and perchance would place her in an abbey where she could peacefully live out her days, free of the rule of a man who’d been bent on destroying her.

    REVIEW:
    Really, what more can you expect other than a fabulous book, with a great plot, awesome in-depth characters, and a can’t-turn-your-eyes-away plot from Ms. Banks?

    This piece was really good. It had all the mixings for a book that stays with you long after you put it down. I loved all the twist and turns in this as well as the great characterization. I felt as though the author made her characters work for their HEA, and that’s the way it should be. Nothing should just be given. I also loved how we got to see characters from the previous book, that was a nice touch.

    This one tore at my heartstrings, frustrated me, and made me laugh all at once. It’s definitely one to pick up as soon as it’s released. Five out of five stars for a job well done.

    My Musings: 

    This is the second book in Maya Banks The Montgomerys and Armstrongs series and it is very much a sequel.  The book could be read as a stand alone, but I don’t recommend it.  To really appreciate the relationships in Highlander Most Wanted, you should read Never Seduce A Scot first.  Many of the same characters appear and it is like a visit with old friends.

    Bowen is the younger brother of his laird.  He has been sent to take the McHugh Keep because of the crimes they committed against his family.  Unbeknownst to him, even more terrible crimes have been committed to a captive of the McHugh’s . . . Genevieve.  She has been tortured and abused by the McHugh laird’s son for almost a year.  Bowen is her only hope of rescue and he doesn’t even know she exists.

    Bowen is an honorable man and believes nothing is as important as protecting those who are unable to protect themselves.  Genevieve has had no one to champion her and has lost her faith in everyone around her.  She is shamed by what has been done to her and only wants to be left in peace.

    So, of course, they fall in love.

    One of the things I like about Maya Banks’ heroes is that they are not afraid to admit when they fall in love.  Many times, the men recognize their feelings before the women do.  It does not matter how alpha they might be, when they fall for a woman, they fall hard.

    Genevieve was raised in a strong, loving family and that is what has enabled her to survive the past year in captivity.  However, she no longer feels worthy of any man’s love and is too ashamed to want anything but to hide herself away.

    Considering her sense of shame, an issue I had with the book is how easily Genevieve fell into a physical relationship with Bowen.  Although there were moments when she felt threatened, they were quickly overcome and she lost herself in his arms.  That’s not a direct quote, but the sentiment was definitely there. I just find it hard to accept that after a year of rape and torture by multiple men, she is able to relax enough to enjoy herself with Bowen.

    Obviously, this is not an light romance, but so much more.  The strength both characters show makes you love them all the more.

    Genevieve and Bowen had a lot to overcome and just when you thought everything was going to work out, there’s a twist in the plot.  Don’t worry.  They get their “happily ever after,” but it doesn’t come easily.

    If you enjoy Highland romances with strong male and female characters, this is a series you do not want to miss.  Maya Banks writes in a variety of genres and this is one of her best.

    The setup for the sequel is hinted at and I have already preordered the book.  Highland Ever After is due out on September 24, 2013 and I cannot wait.

    This book was provided by NetGalley and Ballantine Books for an honest review.

    I love Maya Banks' writing so I jumped at the chance to review this book on NetGalley although I have not read the first book in the series, Never Seduce a Scot. From what I can glean, Highlander Most Wanted picks up the story and continues it with Bowen (Graeme's brother) and Genevieve (a "guest" in the McHugh keep).

    Highlander Most Wanted begins with a siege from the Montgomery and Armstrong clans on a bedraggled and lairdless keep. The former laid, Patrick McHugh flees in fear of retribution from the two clans. Patrick McHugh is spineless and ineffective but has allowed his spoiled and maniacal son Ian to rule with a iron fist. Ian's vile behavior places him in the cross hairs of the Montgomery and Armstrong clans. Ultimately, Ian's actions lead to his death at the hands of Graeme Montgomery. But Ian's legacy of evil and cruelty remains at the McHugh keep. Genevieve has suffered the greatest from Ian's cruelty. Labeled the laird's "whore", Genevieve was forced to endure regular physical and emotional torment from the entire McHugh clan. Hopeless and alone, Genevieve struggles to survive. But all is not lost for Genevieve because fate intervenes on her behalf in the form of Bowen Montgomery.

    This was such a beautiful and heart-wrenching story. Genevieve experienced the worst that life could offer any woman. But her tenacity and fortitude kept her going when everything around her was yelling "STOP". This story evoked such powerful emotions in me and I often found myself growing misty-eyed because the depth of feeling that it pulled from me. My heart broke for Genevieve. But, I was so glad to see that her end did not come at Ian's or the McHugh's hand. No...her end was far greater and in the loving hands and welcoming arms of Bowen Montgomery.

    Banks truly crafted a masterful and high-octane emotional story that kept my attention from cover to cover. I read the book straight through and at "The End" I uttered a happy sigh. Brava!!!

    This has to be one of the most romantic books of Maya Banks that I have read. So far my favourite is In Bed With A Highlander (which I absolutely loved), but this one might just beat it out on the romance level. I really felt the connection between these characters and the novel really focused on the Bowen and Genevieve finding each other and finding a way to be together. Genevieve has been broken in so many ways. And the clan she lives with have made wrong accusations towards her (which I think means they all deserve a punch in the face) and she has nothing left. Or at least that is what she believe until Bowen shows her what she has. And he shows her that she has more than just him; she has friends, and family as well. I loved the gradual change that we see in Genevieve and I loved when she proves just how strong she when she takes up her bow. I was so proud during that moment!
    I found this book different from the others in the flow of the book and the sequence of events. It didn’t focus on a mystery, or build up to some huge war/battle (don’t get me wrong there is definitely some fighting), and It really made me focus on the romance. I had a been feeling while reading the novel that I knew who the next novel would be about and the synopsis was finally revealed not that long ago along with the cover. And I gave my evil laugh as I was proven right! Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks does leave me wanting Bowen (*SIGH—if only), and I can’t wait for the next one.




    Good:




    Bowen—doing what is best for Genevieve even if it doesn’t include him. Damn I love him




    Genevieve—After suffering through so much she still proves to be strong.




    Bad:




    There were many moments when my attention was wondering, and even times when I was frustrated and basically yelling at my eReader for them to kiss.




    Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):




    Overall, I loved the story. I found it filled with romance, and focusing just enough time on both the romance and the sexual content.  I loved the characters and I found it very easy to get into the book. There was nothing wrong with the writing, and I never really had to re-read something to understand it. Overall Highlander Most Wanted left me wanting more from Maya Banks and her Highlanders, sadly I have to wait until September

    Disappointed with this one, and I was very excited for it (perhaps my expectations were too high). My score would actually be 2.5 if possible.  I enjoyed the first in this series and others by this author, but the plot of this was just boring and too...simple for me. Anytime there was a conflict between characters, it would immediately be resolved with little problem. I dunno, just didn't really care for this overall.

    In the last book we met Graime and Eveline but in Highlander Most Wanted we meet Graime's younger brother Bowen. Even though this book involves two different main characters, I recommend reading the books in succession. There is a lot that takes place in the last book that rolls over into this one. It had been a while since I read the first book and it took me a few minutes to get my bearings before I remembered what had happened previously.

    Even though I didn't like the heroine as much as the last, I still found Genevieve to be interesting and complex. She was abducted on the way to her betrothal and was raped and forced to be a whore by her captor. She's looked down upon and abused by pretty much everyone in the clan. She's learned to don a blank mask and shut herself out to those around her but when Bowen comes riding in to take over the clan's land, she finds herself slowly softening towards him.

    Bowen was a great hero in my opinion. He comes into the keep, guns blazing ready for a fight, only to find the Laird of the clan has deserted his people. Not only that but he stumbles across a woman who's been sorely abused by both the Laird's son and the people of the clan. He immediately takes her safety upon himself and sees to make sure that she doesn't come to further harm from the other clan members. However, there is more to her story than originally thought and he finds himself battling family, loyalty and his heart.

    Neither of these characters were simple, nor was the story. There is a lot that takes place in this story and I liked that Graime and Eveline make an appearance. However, I felt like some of the drama that takes place was unnecessary. At one point Bowen believes that Genevieve was a willing whore and is quick to judge her. Of course the truth comes out and he feels horrible for his assumptions but he seemed to have done that a lot. He would think poorly on certain things when it came to Genevieve when he didn't have all of the facts. Needless to say, there were a few times where I just wanted to yell at him.

    I loved seeing the characters from the last book and it seems like we will continue to see them throughout the series. I can't wait to find out who stars in the next book.

    Sorry as I am a Maya Banks fan but this one was not up to her standards. Read more like a short story. The female character was a whining puling poor excuse. Stoic? Proud? Please...spare me. Wanted to read more about Eveline and Graeme. Oh well...enough said. Make your own judgement.

    Genevieve is a young Noble woman who becomes the obsession of I


    Genevieve is a young Noble woman who becomes the obsession of Ian McHugh. Ian is a renegade Scottish heir to the McHugh Keep. His father allows Ian to run roughshod over him. Genevieve dismisses Ian and he becomes enraged. He abducts her and kills her escorts. Genevieve is believed dead by her family and friends.

    Ian takes Genevieve back to his keep. She continues to refuse him. He debases her and destroys her reputation making her his "whore". The entire clan ostracizes her and she is forced to submit to survive.

    Bowen is sent to the McHugh keep to rescue his sister by marriage who was also abducted by Ian. At the keep he discovers a dark and mysterious Genevieve. She is a contradiction. At times she cowers in fear and at other times she is as brave as a battle trained warrior. Bowen is mystified by her. He learns of all she has endured and becomes her champion.

    I have read other books by Maya Banks but this was by far my favorite. In this genre she shines. The characters were so real. I felt anguish for Genevieve when she disclosed all that she had been forced to endure. I fell in love with Bowen and his chivalry. He wanted to save Genevieve from her past and give her the future she should have had. Absolutely amazing story. Well Done! 5 Stars!

    Genevieve had lived over a year in hellish conditions, that continued even after her tormentor was dead. Bowen sent by his brother to act
    as Laird of the McHugh's saw they hell the people were putting her through that she did nothing to deserve and took matters into his own
    hands. He proved to be a man of strength by not only championing Genevieve, but by coming to love her. His constantly reminding her
    that nothing in her past was her own fault was enough to make him the perfect man. Maya Banks writes incredible books, Highlander
    Most Wanted not being an exception.
