"An enjoyable book with a yummy hero!"

Liam Lockhart, a captain in the Royal Highland Regiment, returned home after Waterloo to await another military assignment. While he is at his family's estate, he learns that something must be done to pay their debts. If not, they will lose the home, that has been in their family for many generations. Determined to save their home, Liam's family sends him to London to steal back a valuable family heirloom. When several of the Lockharts fled to London after a family feud, they took the family heirloom with them. When Liam arrives in London, he finds room and board at a miserly viscount's house, also living there are a woman and her young daughter. Ellen Farnsworth and her daughter are kept almost destitute in Lord Farnsworth's home. Ellen and Liam are greatly attracted to each other, but most sneak around to see each other. Will Liam be able to save his family and the woman and child, that he has grown to love?

HIGHLANDER UNBOUND was an entertaining historical romance with complex and wonderful characters. Liam was a great hero, who I fell for myself. He was a big, blustery Scotsman with a heart of gold. He not only came to care for Ellen but, also, her troubled, lonely child. I found myself laughing at some of his money- saving escapades among the ton. Liam was a breath of fresh air and cared nothing for what others thought. Ellen made a mistake and was forced to pay for it for nearly ten years. She sees her daughter being affected by the way they are forced to live and takes action. While I don't agree with the actions that she took, I can understand her reasons behind them. I, also, enjoyed the interactions with Liam's family and can't wait for the next book in the series. HIGHLANDER UNBOUND was an enjoyable book with a yummy hero; I highly recommend it.

He vowed to capture the woman who’d once imprisoned him body and soul…

On leave from his Highland regiment, Captaim Liam Lockhart comes to London on an urgent mission: to repossess the stolen family heirloom that could save his ancestral estate. He never dreamed it would involve surrendering his heart. But the beautiful and scandalous socialite Ellen Farnsworth sets his Highland blood aflame with a will as strong and reckless as his own. Though bound to Liam by a soul-searing passion, duty impels Ellen to commit a terrible betrayal.

Now, driven by passion, pride, and vengeance that know no bounds, this fearsome Highlander will reclaim not only his family’s ancient treasure, but the one daring woman he was meant to love for all time.
