Captured Heart by Heather McCollum
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fleeing with only her bow, horse, enormous pet wolf, and the cryptic clues hidden in her mother’s medicine journal, healer Meg Boswell gallops north toward freedom, running from the man who falsely accused her mother of witchcraft. Cursed with magical healing abilities, Meg knows that if she’s captured, she will die like her mother—atop a blazing pyre.
Winter winds rip across the Highlands, pressing Chief Caden Macbain forward in his desperate plan to save his clan. He’s not above using an innocent woman to bargain for peace if it keeps his clan from starving. But Meg isn’t who Caden thinks, and when she kills a man to save the clan, he must choose between duty and her life. For although he captured her to force peace, Meg’s strength and courage have captured Caden’s heart.
This was a fast-paced novel full of Scottish lore and a great hero who I want for myself!! As a matter of fact, he needs to get rid of the heroine and try me on for size! I loved the interplay between the two of them. They had great chemistry and the plot was both engaging of the reader and easy enough for an outsider to read if they just picked it up and started reading in the first couple chapters. I guarantee that if you do that, you won't be able to quit. This love story starts at the beginning and it's just so awesome to watch it grow and turn into passion and lust. But like every good thing are lies and deception in these books and you have to uncover what those are! I found I couldn't put it down for that reason. I was up half the night to see what would happen. So, go buy the book and find out what happens and lick the cover while you're at it:)
