Play boy and younger brother, Lachlan MacGrath, is living it up as the honored guest of the King, but when His Majesty seeks to reward him with a bride Lachlan's fancy free world gets turned upside down. Seeking a place in life though, Lachlan see's his new matrimonial and Chieftain status as a way to prove his worth and responsibility, the intense attraction he feels towards his new wife is just an added bonus. Lady Angelique Drummagan isn't falling for his roguish charms though and refuses to believe him to be an honest man. Although when danger threatens, Angelique must rely on Lachlan to protect her and their clan position. Can Angelique learn to trust Lachlan though with more than just her body before it's too late? Or will an enemy from the past destroy their fragile marriage before it even has a chance to begin? Action and adventure, emotion turmoil and sexual tension, humor and romance - My Wild Highlander has it all! If you loved My Fierce Highlander or just drool over Scottish romances in general then I recommend you reading this book. It's a wonderful addition to the first novel in the series but can be read as a standalone without a problem. Vonda Sinclair has exceptional writing skills, grabbing you right on the first page and plummeting you into the story, not letting you go until the very end. And even then you're left wanting more! I became so attached to Lachlan's character that I literally wanted to smack Angelique numerous times for not giving him a chance and always expecting the worst. It drove me crazy how icy she was towards Lachlan no matter how sweet and understanding he was in return. But getting so worked up about a character is a sign of great writing! J Most importantly, Vonda gives readers another beautiful ending that had me smiling when I closed my book.err.reader. Lol I'm looking forward to Dirk's story next and it can't come soon enough! Vonda Sinclair is an author to keep your eye, I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more amazing works from her!

Lachlan MacGrath loves the ladies and they love him.  Angelique Drummagan is half Scottish half French. She is the ward of the King James. Since Lachlan saved the life of King James' close friend he was Knighted. The King decreed that Lachlan should marry Angelique and become not only Earl but clan chief. From the beginning this story has mystery, murder and adventure.  If you love Highlanders, romance, mystery please read the further adventure of Lachlan & Angelique to see how these two get together.

Amazing! I just finished reading this amazing Scottish adventure written by Vonda Sinclair "My Wild Highlander". Another breathtaking romance! I could not put it down! It's her 2nd book in her Highland Adventure series. It's the story of the wild Lachlan MacGrath, aka the Seducer of the Highlands and Angelique Drummagan, a Scottish/French countess. Just a brief description! Angelique is ordered by the King, to marry Lachman. She accepts, thinking it will be a marriage in name only. Lachman, is pleased with this arrangement because he received the title of Earl from the King, by this marriage, he will own all her possessions. But every day, Angelique will be drawn under his charmed spell and soon, sparks will ignite between the two. Ms. Sinclair is a very descriptive writer. Wonderful intrigue and suspense. Funny scenes! The more I read the more I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Look for Dirk's story, in her next book "My Brave Highlander". If you enjoy Scottish historical romances, then this book is for you!

I love how the author transformed Lachlan from a rogue to a man who only have eyes for Angelique, his wife. It 's believable. Men do exist who have depth of character like Lachlan. As for Angelique, I want to throttle her for her mistrust but then it is understandable given her history. My favorite part is when they played the adult version of hazards game in the bedroom. It's absolutely wicked!

Review by Robin: Once again Ms. Sinclair hit it out of the park with this story. From the classy way she told the love story of Lachlan MacGrath and Lady Angelique Drummagan. And they obstacles that are put in their way, to make this a real page turner that is hard to put down. From the beginning as we find out about Lachlan, womanizer of the Highlands. He has had his run of the countryside and has now met his match in Angelique. He has saved one of the King's trusted men so the king in return bestows upon Lachlan the fiery Angelique. Along with marriage to Angelique come land and a title. Angelique knows of Lachlan's womanizing and doesn't hold much in him being faithful to her. She has a hard time with trust and doesn't want to have a man in her life, let alone her bed. From the start the kisses that Lachlan bestows upon on Angelique leave her wanting more. And more is exactly where they head. The steaminess of passion comes off the pages and makes you want to keep reading to find out just what happens. Throughout the whole story we find a very classy and crisp romance that takes us to not only the bedroom but outside where we find that sometimes to make things work you must do things together and work hand in hand. TRUST! From the beginning Lachlan wants to prove to Angelique that he can be trusted. He sells his beloved dagger to get a special ring as a token to her. And as he wins over her people and surrounding clans he feels that this just may work. But with many great stories there is always an adversary and this is no different. A distant relative feels he is entitled to the title and the land. Of which he wants to hold for his nephew. In the meantime he wins over some of the clansman that had sworn their allegiance to Lachlan. As the story unfolds a man from Angelique's past joins forces with a woman that wants Lachlan and with Angelique's distant relative. Angelique is on her way to trusting Lachlan completely when the past hits them and they are once again on the run.Forced to leave their new home they head to the Highland's where Lachlan's family is at in search of help and hopefully healing. As they work together they end up putting the past to rest and finally get things cleared up so that there is no doubt that they are made for each other. Only to find out that trust and love go hand in hand. Ms. Sinclair's My Wild Highlander is a must read and one that I recommend and will read again. I look forward to the next Highland Adventure.

I loved Ms. Sinclair's first book My Fierce Highlander so much I had to try her latest. And I was not disappointed! From her spunky heroine to her incredibly sexy and charming hero, this book had me riveted from the first page. Lots of action, danger, romance and even some laughs. This book has it all. I really hope there's more to come in this series. I don't want it to end!

Vonda Sinclair has written a breathtaking Scottish Historical that readers will eat up in one sitting! My Wild Highlander is a crisp, romantic, fast paced adventure set in the Highlands of Scotland, 1618. From the first pages, sparks fly between Lady Angelique Drummagan and Sir Lachlan MacGrath. A Kings unexpected declaration sets their fate and their lives will never be the same. Intrigue, danger, and passion intertwine with mutual respect and make My Wild Highlander a satisfying, memorable read. The love scenes are penned with the mature reader in mind and do not overshadow the detailed plot and compelling relationship that grows between Angelique and Lachlan with the passage of time. This is book two in Ms. Sinclair's Highlander series, a perfect complement to the first book, My Fierce Highlander. I am looking forward to the next book in this amazing Highlander series!

I spent my week vacation relaxing and reading Vonda Sinclair’s entire Highland Adventure series :) I love how she writes her characters – she is able to weave depth, emotion, love, and despair masterfully throughout her books. She can also set up a great scene – I almost feel like I’m in Scotland, right in the middle of all the action. Vonda’s books start out with action, and that easily draws me in. Sometimes when starting a new book, I am bored in the beginning, but this is definitely not the case with this author! If you’re on the fence about whether or not to read this book, go ahead and take a chance – you won’t regret it :)

What happens when the Seducer of the Highland is betrothed to a red head, eye eyed and sexy hellion! Lots of SPARKS and you know you want to get burned! Lady Angelique Drummagan is a child from a divided marriage of her Scottish father and her French mother. When she was 9, her mother left her unfaithful hubby and took Angelique and herself to France. All through her childhood, she heard how all Scottish men are faithless brutes. She had a man she loved, but he turned out to be just as faithless and brutal as her father. After her mother's death, she and her illegitimate cousin and BBF, Camille, go to England to be with her guardian, who is King James. All he wants to do is get her married off, and have her new hubby protect Angelique, her title, money, property and the Clan of Drummagan. Sir Lachlan MacGrath is known as the Seducer of the Highlands and he loves his family, friends, all women and a good fight. He is in England because he saved King James best friend, Buckingham, and was knighted. Lachlan is enjoying the food, wine, hunting and all the women. One night he is trying to sheath his sword to the willing Lady and he is rudely interrupted by a fiery hellion and a summons from the king. King James announces to the hellion, Lady Angelique, to meet her betrothed and the future Earl of Draughton, Lachlan. Yes, that is how Angelique meets her future tall, long haired, brutish looking and KILT wearing faithless Scottish hubby. And this how Lachlan meets his future sexy, red head, green eyed, claws out and ready to take a bite out of him hellion of a wife. To say their aren't please, is laughable. Angelique will not be hurt by a man again and no one will take her control of her clan, her castle and most differently her body away. Lachlan just want to became the new Earl, protect and be responsible for Angelique and their new clan and having the kitten in his bed is just a bonus. Her cousin Baron Kormad is plotting to either marry, kidnap or kill her to get Draughton in his greedy hands, so Lachlan recruits help from his old and trusted friends Dirk and Rebbie. He and Angelique get married in secret and flee to Draughton Castle with Kormad hot on their tails. Now they are the unhappy Earl and Countess Draughton! They finally reach the Draughton Castle and are introduced to the semi-unhappy clan. Lachlan starts to training his men to earn support and their respect. Angelique is furious because he is taken over everything. Lachlan is sexually frustrated and no woman interested him, but his pissed off wife. He begins a plan of seduction for his hellion of a wife with hand holding, small caresses and smothering kisses. Angelique is freaking out about the warm feeling traveling through her body when he touches, caresses and kisses her. After their second wedding in front of the clan, Lachlan learns of the brutality done to her and leaves her in peace. Angelique may be scarred, but she takes the bull by the horns and TAKES Lachlan under her control and learns what an orgasm is all about. All is going great until an unwanted female wedding guest shows up, a mysterious wedding gift arrives, Kormad makes his move, Lachlan is sexual setup and an old nemesis is afoot. Can the Seducer of the Highlands be faithful? Will Angelique willing give her love to Lachlan? Will their known and unknown enemies destroy their budding love? When will these two stubborn people understand that love makes you stronger? Can Lachlan clear his sexual name? Will Kormad get is a$$ kicked? This is Vonda Sinclair's second Highlander Tale and it was better than the first. Her heroine, Angelique, has a bruised heart, but a spine of steel and she uses it to survive. Camille is her only friend and her source of strength and also gives Angelique a good bootie kicking, when she needs it. Lachlan loves all women and he had to learn that only one woman is fantastic, if she is his other half. He also grateful for all the lessons he learned at the hands of his father and older brother because it made him a better Clan leader. I had this book on my tablet and it was confiscated by my daughter, due to the sparks and steam from the amazing "pull the fire alarm" scenes, but I did get it back when she went to work! Ms. Sinclair does something bold by exposes her heroine and hero's weak underbelly, but places characters in the story to help and guide them. She also begins back some of the loveable cast from her first book and introduces 2 KILT wearing Scots, Dirk and Rebbie, and I fell in love with them. This story has humor galore and is more light hearted and I loved it. Now I have to push that evil and cruel Amazon "buy" button for Dirk's story. Ms. Sinclair has totally earned my top score of 5 fingers up and 10 toes!
