Highlander Claimed by Juliette Miller

Wednesday, February 6, 2013
Synopsis: Since her adoption by peasants of the Ogilvie Clan, Roses has been marked as an outsider. Her fair hair and golden complexion set her apart, as does a mysterious tattoo she keeps hidden at all costs. So when Laird Ogilvie corners her with an indecent proposal, Roses has no ties to stop her from fleeing. Outcast and alone, her escape across the Highlands is interrupted by Wilkie Mackenzie, the wild and handsome brother of nearby Clan Mackenzie's leader.

Wilkie is honor bound to marry into the family of a valuable ally. But when Roses sweeps him off his feet-literally-settling for an arranged match is no longer an option. Torn between duty and desire, Wilkie dedicates himself to Roses's protection, but Laird Ogilvie knows her secret and will stop at nothing to steal Roses back. Now, these star-crossed lovers find themselves in a fight to defend both their hearts...and their lives.

Review: This book is a historical love story set in the Highland countryside. Roses is a true highland lass that falls in love with Wilkie MacKenzie and that’s where the story begins. Ms. Miller weaves this love story through the book flawlessly with the politics of Scotland as a background for the action. She gives us a glimpse of clan functions as she describes the cast system in Scotland and arrange marriages for strength of the clans. It’s great to see how the love between the spunky Scottish lass of servant class manages to capture the heart of the brother of the Lard. Little does he know the root of the problem is that Roses is the King’s missing daughter. Love conquer all in this Highland story; a great read from Juliette Miller.
Highland Claimed is the first book released in the series The Clan MacKenzie. I must say that I am not usually a historical romance reader but Ms. Miller’s story made me look forward for the following books in this series. I would recommend this book to my friends and especially to anyone who enjoys historical romances.
