How does a woman tell her betrothed that she murdered her first husband?

Shipwrecked in the Scottish Highlands, American heiress Elise Kingston quietly plans revenge for the deaths of her daughter and the brother who sacrificed his life to save her.

When Marcus MacGregor, Marquess of Ashlund, returns to his Highland home to discover a stunning American woman has been taken in by his clan, his attraction is instant and he resolves to make her his--no matter what secret she's keeping.

Elise is shocked by her need for Marcus and, too late, discovers that her feelings make him a target of her enemy--a man powerful enough to destroy even a Scottish nobleman.

After narrowly escaping being murdered by her former husband for control of her shares in a prosperous American shipping venture, Elise Kingston finds herself shipwrecked in the Scottish Highlands. Knowing the rest of her husband's family is searching for her to finish her off or wrongly imprison her for killing her husband in self-defense, Elise hides among Clan MacGregor where she found refuge from the storm that sank her ship. As Elise bides her time, plotting her revenge against those she holds responsible for her daughter and brother's murders, Elise integrates herself into clan life. What she never expects, however, is to fall head over heels for Marcus MacGregor, Marquess of Ashlund. He is the one man who could protect her from the secrets she hides, but those secrets could also make him the next target. As Elise struggles with whether or not to tell Marcus about her past and how to even begin that conversation, threats swirl around her, indicating that time may be running out. This novel has an exciting plot that begins with so much promise, but after the opening salvo, it is a but slow to pick up steam. Then, after a sluggish bit, events pick up and I couldn't put it down! That said, although Elise and Marcus have a passionate relationship, their reunion was disappointingly lackluster. The characters are well drawn and complex. Elise, in particular, is a puzzle--on the one hand, she is brave and courageous enough to thwart her husband's attempt to kill her, survive a shipwreck and restart her life, yet like many people she is still afraid of facing Marcus with the truth about her past. While I liked Claimed better, I still enjoyed this book and will continue on with this series.

This was awful!

I am usually drawn to Highland romances as a change of pace to some denser reads. I look for fun banter, strong characters and an actual plot which unfolds. I found this book lacking on all fronts. The book felt like it was choppy in scene changes and dialogue. The descriptions were shallow and I felt disinterested throughout. I would not recommend. I wish I could get my money back.

For anyone that loves historical romances, she has mastered the art of enchanting readers with the allure and brutality of the Highlands and of Scotland. She has captured the spirit of that time and draws us in with her strong characters that have intense chemistry and attraction – all centered around a fascinating and fast paced story line and plot. This was a very enjoyable read that captured my complete attention. I would love to read all her books about her Highland Lords and love interests as she creates characters that you learn to care about and want to follow.

If you love historical romance this book is for you! It is long so get comfy because once you start you will not want to stop and it goes pretty quick once you get into it. The first thing I loved about My Highland Love is that the main characters are older, Elise had a daughter and Marcus our sexy Highland warrior is a Highland Laird, he is also the son of a Duke, making him a Lord. You never know what is going to happen next with Elise, She’s one smart, stubborn and feisty woman who refuses to give up no matter what especially when it comes to the man who killed her daughter. Elise will stop at nothing to make sure he pays for what he did. Elise and Marcus will have you going through a range of emotions one being needing a cold shower! The chemistry between these two characters will leave you breathless! This is one book I will defiantly read over and over!
