Highlander Unbound (Lockhart Family Series #1) by Julia London

On leave from his Highland regiment, Captain Liam Lockhart comes to London on an urgent mission: to repossess the stolen family heirloom that could save his ancestral estate. He never dreamed it would involve surrendering his heart. But the beautiful and scandalous socialite Ellen Farnsworth sets his Highland blood aflame with a will as strong and reckless as his own. Though bound to Liam by a soul-searing passion, duty impels Ellen to commit a terrible betrayal.
Now, driven by passion, pride, and vengeance that know no bounds, this fearsome Highlander will reclaim not only his family's ancient treasure, but the one daring woman he was meant to love for all time.

Even though it is 1816 and a few years have passed since the armed combat ended, Navy Captain Liam Lockhart still suffers from battle fatigue. However, he has other concerns besides his nightmares as his family is broke. He agrees with the proposal to steal back a gold beastie heirloom from the English branch of the family for the Scottish Lockharts to sell.................... In London in the house where he rents a room at usury rates he meets nine year old Natalie, granddaughter of his nasty landlord. Through the child who constantly visits him, Liam meets Ellen, the lass¿ mother. Liam falls in love with Ellen, but she seduces the location of the heirloom from him and steals it to insure a future for Natalie. Liam is filled with rage and a need of vengeance for he allowed passion to hurt his family and devastate his honor. He will follow Ellen¿s trail to wherever it leads, for he will regain the beastie and avenge the betrayal.................................... Readers will appreciate this exciting Regency romance in which a sailor scorned is someone to beware of as Ellen will learn. Natalie is too precocious though readers will understand her need for any companionship beyond her mom while her grandfather is a very odious a soul who deserves an eternity of loneliness. The lead couple is a delightful duo, who make the tale, as Ellen feels bad for what she did to the man she loves, but like any lioness feels her first priority is her cub. Fans will enjoy this interesting tale.......................... Harriet Klausner

This book had a good story line but just wasn't great. Kind of blah.

Love is what happens when your busy with other plans. So true for Liam Lockhart when he must travel to London to gain back a Family treasure that was stolen from their family. Liam falls in love with Ellie and her young daughter. But Ellie's dire need for the means to leave her Father's household leads to betrayal. "I thought we were two people caught up in extraordinary circumstance, who had found each other in spite it all, if only a moment in time. I never thought it was a game, and I never thought we were anything but honest with one another. What a Goddamn fool I was, eh?" My favorite scene out of the book aside from the obvious happy ending they will have, with a hint to the next novel. I loved the story once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. A great read I will gladly re-read any time. Kudos Julia London another book I love.

The first 125 pages were torturous. I about put the book away, never to finish. Then finally the characters stopped making me wince. This is an obviouse trilogy with characters that aren't really that likeable. Still trying to decide if I should read #2. I figure it will take all three siblings to achieve the prize.

I have not been able to finish this book. I will read a chapter and move on to another book. I find it very slow moving and have yet to connect with the main characters. I keep hoping it will get better but so far I am disappointed. This is the first book I have read from this author and this is the first book in her trilogy. I can't see myself reading the others.

THIS IS MY FIRST BOOK BY THIS AUTHOR AND SINCE I BOUGHT THE SECOND BOOK IN THE SERIES I WILL READ IT. ON A SENSUAL SCALE OF 1-10 IT IS A 6 BUT NOT SURE I CARE FOR THE 'EXTRAS' USED IN LOVEMAKING. I NEVER HAVE READ A BOOK WHERE THE ENDING IS RUSHED AND NOT BROUGHT TO A SATISFYING CLOSING. THIS ONE LEFT A READER TWISTING IN THE WIND LIKE A HANGING MAN..

My first Julia London and certainly not my last! I really enjoyed her writing style, it's informal compared to the time period of the story. I am eagerly awaiting the publication of the next two volumes. Hurry!

I have never read a romantic noval before and this one was wonderful. When I bought it I asked the sales clerk for brown paper bag to put in! LOL Just kidding. It was well worth the time to read and I cant wait until the other book in this family are published!!

The beastie was admittedly hideous, but nonetheless, priceless. The gold and ruby statue was valuable enough to save Liam's family home, if he could recover it. The mission was important enough to impel the Scotsman out of the Highlands to noisy, ugly London. He finds a room in a disagreeable Englishman's home, never expecting what will happen next. ...................... Liam runs across a little girl with a vivid imagination who introduces him to her mother, Ellen Farnsworth. She steals his heart instantly, but he is sure she is unavailable. Finding that she is not married is almost as great a treasure as the beastie, until Liam learns that Ellen is an even more skillful thief than he thought. She took his heart, the beastie, and as a last indignity, his kilt. He sets off for home, determined to find her and reclaim a bit of his own. Will even her good reasons be sufficient to calm his temper and excuse her betrayal? ........................ *** Julia London reveals her grasp of the complexity of love as she intertwines characters lives and multifaceted motivations. Family ties are contrasted, both good and bad. One moment the story is light hearted, and with the turn of a page, cutting truth is sharply revealed. Readers will be left on the edge of their seat at the cliff hanger ending. ***
