    Interesting Characters and Plot

    Highland Captive by Alyson McLayne is book four in her Sons of Gregor MacLeod historical romance series. Though part of a series this novel reads well as a standalone. However, I do plan to read the previous books in the series and any future installments. Laird Gavin MacKinnon is one of five clan leaders previously fostered together by the great Gregor MacLeod, in order to create allies and bring peace to the Highlands. Gavin’s personality has changed for the worse since his not quite two-year-old son, Ewan, went missing two years ago. Word has reached Gavin that his son has been claimed by the wife of the heir of Clan MacIntyre. Deidre MacIntyre, born in Clan MacColl, now wife of Lewis MacIntyre, son and heir of the ruthless Laird MacIntyre, claims Ewan is her son. Upon seeing Gavin MacKinnon, Deirdre begins to fear that she has been misled, but she loves her young son and will never leave him. Gavin never gave up his certainty that his son was alive. He now knows where Ewan is and wastes no time retrieving him. He has to bring Deirdre along too, because she refuses to leave Ewan, claiming he is hers. Gavin and Deirdre clash but soon realize that they must put aside their differences for Ewan’s sake. Deidre’s husband, father-in-law and brother arrive, bringing the promise of war with them. Will Deirdre be returned to her family? There’s nothing else quite like a Scottish Highlander, and I love reading about them. Highland Captive met my high standards. Ms. McLayne has acquitted herself well. I want to keep visiting with these interesting characters she’s created. I love the intense familial bonds. The plot holds the attention and has great twists. I loved the story and rate it 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to all readers of historical romance, especially lovers of Highlander romance. There is some explicit sexual content that may be offensive to some readers. My thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    Highland Captive

    Glen Moieasdan, Scotland 1453 "Deirdre MacIntyre leaned back against the tent pole and tried to take ten slow, steady breaths-but nothing worked to calm her panic and dread welling up inside her....His eyes...Eyes that promised retribution.. eyes that were the exact same color as her son's." paraphrased a bit. Can you see how this gripped me from the beginning? Deirdre's husband had brought home Ewan a couple of years ago. Claiming it was his son from a former trist and the mother was dead. She could only feel love for the little boy and was determined to give him a happy life, unlike the one she had. But when she sees a large highland warrior that looks like her son, she is in shock and has no doubt it is his real father. She frantically goes home to Ewan to keep him safe. Of course Gavin eventually finds her and takes his son but Deirdre goes with them because to Ewan she is his mother and needs her. His plan is to let her stay for awhile then send her back. But of course it could cause a clan war. The range of emotions in this story was humorous to intense which you could feel coming off the pages. A tangle indeed with Deirdre still married, although she and her husband married when she was 15, they had become friendly but were not in love. A long jouney to a happy ending but Alyson McLayne did an amazing job of sorting everything out and bringing the two together.. A story not to be missed!

    Absolutely Loved It!

    I LOVED the previous 3 books in this series and was super excited to be able to read this one prior to release. It met it's mark. While reading the previous books in the series you know that Laird Gavin MacKinnon is haunted by the disappearance of his 2 year old son, Ewan. Gavin, along with the other "Sons" of MacGregor have searched all over the highlands for Ewan...for two and a half very long years. He is heartbroken and angry. When he finally finds his beloved son, his heart starts to heal but he is still very angry. Why was his son taken, who took him? The MacGregor and his fostered sons are realizing that someone is out to get them, to destroy them. They just can't figure out who even after thwarting all of his plans. Deidre MacIntyre was given a child by her husband and after living a lonely life, even surrounded by family, she falls deeply in love with this little boy. After his father rescues him, she will not leave his side. He is her son and will do anything to protect him. The more time Deidre and Gavin spend together they start to fall in love. Unfortunately, Deidre is married. Married to the only son of a Laird. Will they be able to be together? Will they find out why little Ewan was taken? Will they find out who is behind it all? I highly recommend this book as well as the previous three. I also can't wait to read the next book which I'm sure will be about Kerr and Isobel. (Kerr is one of my favourite side characters.) I received an advanced readers copy from NetGalley for an honest review.

    Enjoyable story

    So far this is my favorite story in the series. The scenes with the little boy are realistic, amusing and poignant. The enemy remains a mystery so I look forward to the next book.

    Highland Captive

    Highland Captive by Alyson McLayne is brilliantly written from beginning to end. This gripping story is edgy and delivers a deep emotional connection to the characters and their plights. I loved this book for its originality and it’s creative and complex storyline with multiple plots that surprised me and kept me guessing! But, most of all I absolutely loved the author’s expert delivery of strong emotion and for making me literally laughing out loud with witty banter, then take in a deep breath for the steamy slow burn romance that leaves a heated blush! This type of story is my all time favorite! This author is new to me and I’m an instant fan! I recommend this book to everyone who loves a great Highland historical romance rich with excitement, tragedy, danger, intrigue, deception, love, vengeance, loyalty, redemption, and more. This is one of the best romantic historical suspense novels I’ve read this year.
