**ARC was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**This is the second book in Maya Banks newest Scottish series about the Montgomery brothers; and their enemies-to-allies, the Armstrong’s. Another amazing highlander romance which left me with a smile on my face and a heavy heart that it ended. I love historical fiction and there is just something about a Highlander that I can’t resist, so when the opportunity to review Highlander Most Wanted popped up, I jumped at the chance!I coundn’t put it down, I stayed up late just to finish it! OMFG! One of my favorite series so far! I really liked both the hero and heroine of the book and found my heart going out to how much Genevieve had to suffer both at Ian’s hands and then at the clans after Ian died . I loved how Bowen championed her even after finding out the terrible secret she hides. The plotline of this one continues and closely mirrors the story of ‘Never Seduce a Scot’ to a great degree. Once again, we have a naïve, sweet young woman who is lied about by others, and maligned to the point that the H doesn’t quite know what to believe about her. The villain this time is not Ian McHugh, but his father Patrick McHugh; but this danger is dealt with early in the story; leaving Genevieve’s personal struggles with her situation as the central issue. Highlander Most Wanted is an emotional roller coaster and the author has perfected the mix of romance, drama, and action. The world the author has created is rich in detail and once you’ve immersed yourself in it you don’t want to leave. The characters draw you to them through their strengths, weaknesses, trials and triumphs. The secondary characters are also engaging and I’m looking forward to the continuation of the series to see which ones we will learn more about. I Cannot WAIT to read the third novel in the series!! -Ana @SoManyBooksSoLittle

Description: Maya Banks, the New York Times bestselling author of erotic romance, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance, has captivated readers with her steamy Scottish historical novels, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood. In Highland Ever After, a fierce warrior spurns his king and surrenders to a love as indomitable as the Highlands. After Scotland’s three strongest clans forge a formidable alliance, an uneasy king plots to consolidate power. Knowing that true strength lies in possessing land, fealty, and hearts, he orders sweet Taliesan McHugh to submit to a marriage that will give him control of the coveted McHugh keep. A tender beauty, Taliesan accepts her fate, certain that her lame leg has made her undesirable to any man—until she is swept into the powerful embrace of rugged, devilishly sensual Brodie Armstrong, a warrior who vows to shield her from brutality at any cost.
Fearless and bold, Brodie refuses his king’s command to stand down. Instead, he conspires to rescue the rare beauty whose bravery and innocence stir his blood as no woman ever has. As desperate power struggles reverberate throughout the Highlands, Brodie defies his king and devotes himself to the only mission that commands his loyalty, his blood, and his honor: winning Taliesan’s heart
