Claiming the Highlander

Claiming the Highlander (Brotherhood/ MacAllister Series, Book #2) Claiming the Highlander by Kinley MacGregor

My review
rating: 2 of 5 stars
I love Kinley MacGregor's sense of humor. She has feel for humorous dialogue that is natural. She creates amazing characters that I easily become emotionally invested in.

The plot for Claiming the Highlander was weak. At first glance it seemed that this would be an interesting read, but it was dull filled with a lot of flashback sequences that didn't really move the story forward. The hero began the story as a careless playboy and then in the middle he claimed to be the innocent victim of sex-crazed females. I like reading stories about people who are less than perfect, less than beautiful, with characters who stay true to their character. I like it when bad guys stay bad, people with good intentions mess things up, and playboys fall in love and vow to be faithful.

Pub. Date: March 2002

Synopsis: It is said that Braden MacAllister, English baron and proud Highlander warrior, can fell an enemy with a single blow -- and a woman with a single kiss. But not Maggie, it seems. For the fire-haired beauty, determined to end the long running feud that rages between their clan and it's common foe, is immune to Branden's attempts to stop her foolishness. But stop her he will, once he gets the meddling minx alone...and favors her with a passionate caress and an irresistible kiss. No matter how she trembles beneath Braden's sensuous touch, Maggie must not yield! As long as this feud continues, the lives of her brothers are at stake. And though Braden is known to have bedded many a lass, he has given his heart to none. But dare she dream that by assuring peace for her clan she may also be claiming the most magnificient Highlander for herself?
