Publisher's Summary

With his tawny mane, battle-hewn brawn, and ferocious roar, Angus “The Lion” MacDonald is the most fearsome warrior Lady Gwendolen has ever seen - and she is his most glorious conquest. Captured in a surprise attack on her father's castle, Gwendolen is now forced to share her bed with the man who defeated her clan. But, in spite of Angus's overpowering charms, she refuses to surrender her innocence without a fight. With her stunning beauty, bold defiance, and brazen smile, Gwendolen is the most infuriating woman Angus has ever known - and the most intoxicating. Forcing her to become his bride will unite their two clans. But conquering Gwendolen's heart will take all his skills as a lover. Night after night, his touch sets her on fire. Kiss after kiss, his hunger fuels her passion. But, as Gwendolen's body betrays her growing love for Angus, a secret enemy plots to betray them both.

Great Scot! Don't miss our other titles in the Highlander series.

Love this series!

I have read the other two books in this series and I must say I enjoyed listening to this story the most. I will have to go back and listen to the others.

love this series

Love this series, can't wait to listen to the third book. The narrator is good, the accents sometimes seem a little forced, but overall he does a good job even with the female voices. I like the imperfections of the lead characters, especially Angus, and how he overcomes those. And I always like it when the women are strong, even in an era when they had so few rights.

If you could sum up Claimed by the Highlander in three words, what would they be?

A great listen

What was one of the most memorable moments of Claimed by the Highlander?

the whole book was memorable. I really enjoyed it

Which character ??? as performed by Antony Ferguson ??? was your favorite?

Angus and Lachlan were favorites. Lachlan, i would like to watch his character on the screen. Both of them, you will not forget.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not laugh or cry but interesting that i did not want to quit listening.

Any additional comments?

i like books that if set in Scotland, the narrator uses the appropriate accent as was done in this book. Really makes you feel you are there.

Again. Get a better Narrator~~~~

Again, I appreciate all the work an author goes to in writing a book. However; do they bother to listen to their work once the narrator has completed it??!! Audio books is a huge venue for income for these authors! Please, take as diligent time choosing someone to read your book as you do in writing them! I will NOT buy another one of Julianne MacLean's books anywhere on audio if done by Antony Ferguson. And I'm but one person. However; these audio books are review by the customer and I for one pay close attention to what is written before I spend my money. I rather believe others do as well. Just saying~~~~~Pay Attention.

Excellent listen

I listened to the first book by Julianne MacLean & enjoyed it. The second book was just as good and I liked how the two books came together. I loved them both!

Doesn't get better than this!!!!

I wish I could give this book 6 stars. It is one of my all-time favorite highlander novels, and I've listened to nearly all of them on audible. From Julie Garwood, Maya Banks, Karen Marie Moning, Monica Mcarty, I've been on a highlander binge lately. This is hands down one of my favorite books.

Full of passion and suspense, this book is extraordinary from the first chapter to the last. The hero and heroine are my favorite couple in recent memory. The ties that bind and the forces that pull them apart are poignant and believable. Better than the first book, Claimed by the Highlander is nearly perfect.

Julianne MacLean is not an author to ignore!!! Excellent narration by Anony Ferguson makes this audiobook a MUST BUY for highlander fans!!!

The whole series is excellent!

Good 2nd book in the Highland warrior romance

Good follow on story - it 's 2 years on and this is the tale of Angus who betrayed his best friend in book 1 and his torment but final redemption thanks to Gaendolene who first fights against him then fights for him. Nice.

I thought the narrator did a good job too.

So, worth the credit? Definitely.

just ok

More sex than good storyline. The story didn't appear until a couple of chapters before the end.
