I really enjoyed the first three books in this series, but this novel and the one before it were terrible. The main characters are in need of further development, and the relationships need more chemistry, more romance. The author's writing has gotten progressively worse in the last two books, and I found myself skimming pages of unnecessary and boring exposition. The story drags on and is as tedious and uninteresting as the main characters who are being flung at each other. I was disappointed but would still recommend the first three, but I suggest moving on after that.

Taken by the Highlander is a great story and a good ending to Julianne MacLean's Highlander series. In this book she combined the elements of a lost heir, a new love and a legendary sword to weave the story of Logan and Mari. What started out as a quest for vengeance turned into so much more. It also brought together feuding families, the Campbell's and the MacDonald's, to fight the harsh rule of an English Colonel and atrocities of an English Captain. Though this is supposed to be the last book in the Highlander series, I have fallen in love with many of the characters and would love to see more written about them. I received an ARC of this book to review. While this is the fifth book in the series, you can read any of them as standalones. Though I would strongly suggest that you read book 4, Return of the Highlander, before reading book 5 because the main character Logan is also featured prominently in that book.

This is book 5 the the Highlander series. When Mairi Campbell stumbles upon a wounded warrior of an enemy clan in the woods, she doesn't have it in her heart to leave him out in the elements. She gets him back to her home and nurses him back to health. Having sworn off men years ago, she is surprised to find herself wildly attracted to the man. But can she afford to get her heart broken again. Logan MacDonald is on a secret mission. He didn't count on having it thwarted by his own brother. Having now recovered from his wounds he sets out to accomplish his goals. But what about the woman he has come to care for. If he follows his his previous path, what will happen to their love? If you haven't read the previous book in the series, Return of the Highlander, you need to read it first. It is the story of Logan's brother and these two stories are quite tied together. I didn't think much of Logan after reading the previous story but he did grow on me with this one. Mairi had been treated poorly in the past and he was able to get past her defenses by going slowly with her and taking the time to get to know her and her family. He proved he wasn't as much of an @$$ as I previously had thought he was. This was a very enjoyable read!

Excellent addition to this series and historical read. Please note this can be read as a stand-alone. Logan has been injured in a fight with his brother. After falling off his horse, Mairi finds him and although wary, allows him to stay in her barn. Both have secrets to hide but the passion they have for each other grows. Will a war keep them apart? This is a fast paced read, with lots of drama, the characters are amazing and the story help me captivated throughout. Great Read!
