Captured by the Highlander

Book #1 in The Highlander Series

Lady Amelia Templeton would rather die than surrender to a man like Duncan MacLean. He is the fiercest warrior of his clan—her people’s sworn enemy—and tonight he is standing over her bed. Eyes blazing, muscles taut, and battle axe gleaming, MacLean has come to kill Amelia’s fiancé. But once he sees the lovely, innocent Amelia, he decides to take her instead…

Stealing the young bride-to-be is the perfect revenge against the man who murdered Duncan’s one true love. But Lady Amelia turns out to be more than a pawn of vengeance and war. This brave, beautiful woman touches something deep in Duncan’s soul that is even more powerful than a warrior’s fury. But when Amelia begins to fall in love with her captor—and surrenders in his arms—the real battle begins…

If you're a fan of the Outlander series, you will surely enjoy my Highlander series which takes place during the aftermath of the first Jacobite Rebellion of 1715. 

I loved researching the Scottish Highlands for this series, though I ended up using Leeds Castle (which is actually in England) as the inspiration for the home of the Earl of Moncrieffe, where much of the action takes place during the second half of the novel.  Here are some photos of Leeds Castle.  Is it what you imagined for Moncrieffe?
