She was nothing more than retaliation against his enemies…until she became the woman he could not live without.
Set on revenge, Highland warrior Graham MacLeod abducts Isobel Cambell never anticipating his enemy’s daughter would awaken an irresistible hunger in him. But when his beautiful, headstrong captive challenges his will and proves her courage and honor by willingly risking her life for his, he cannot deny the dangerous passion she stirs in him. Suddenly, his agreement to deliver Isobel to the king who wishes to use her holds little appeal. Yet, with a battle for the Scottish throne brewing, he knows the king will not relinquish the pilfered prize. To everyone else, Isobel is a pawn to be manipulated, but the more time Graham spends with her, the less he sees her as an adversary and the more she becomes the forbidden temptation he must resist.
Isobel Campbell is a wanted woman, but not for who she is, only as the heiress of a castle that holds the key to power over the Scottish isles. And when she is kidnapped by her family’s bitter enemy, all she wants is to return to the father she idolizes. But she soon discovers that those she considers her protectors may in fact be her biggest threats, and the brave, fierce warrior she fears may actually be the one person she can rely on.
A chasm of distrust and an undeniable yearning flare between Isobel and Graham, along with the promise of unexpected love. However, in order to triumph, they must find a way to vanquish their doubts and build an alliance that can withstand the devastation of war and a king determined to sacrifice anything—and anyone—to keep his throne.
When a Highlander Loses His Heart is a wonderful addition to the Highland Vows: Entangled Hearts series. It can be read as a stand alone, but the preceding books in the series provide a rich background for this story. Graham MacLeod has a huge inferiority complex. Since youth he has been racked with jealousy of his brothers and guilt at failing to protect his sister Lena. Isobel Campbell was raised in a nunnery and is finally free and returning to a family she believes loves her, only to find she is viewed only as a political pawn by her father because she is heiress to a strategic castle. Graham steals her from her father so that the king can choose a politically friendly husband for her. That husband turns out to be Graham. Graham is determined to keep his emotions under control and not fall in love with Isobel. Isobel falls in love with Graham and wants him to love and value her. It is not going to be easy. Politics and the past are in the way of their happily ever after. Julie Johnstone creates an engaging, exciting Highland adventure. The plot is strong enough to stand alone as well as supply another segment of the MacLeod Saga. The hero and heroine are strong characters, but a little shaky in personal areas. The secondary characters, familiar from previous stories, are strong and supportive. Hold your breath to see if Graham and Isobel are able to resolve their issues and be prepared for a surprise at the end of the story.
Fabulous weekend read!!:)
