When the Montgomery clan comes to take over the remaining McHugh clan, only victim Genevieve has the courage to try and protect the remaining clan. They, in turn, repay her with abuse and rock throwing.
This is a well told story with interesting events, there is too much use of Genevieve’s pain and suffering to carry the plot. I have worked with actual rape victims. But in this story pain can be magically fixed by a good romance. To me this cheapens the experience of survivors who have to fight hard to overcome their trauma. I feel offended to see rape used as a central plot but without emotional authenticity.
Kathryn Le Veque does this better.
When Bowen arrives at the keep to rescue another kinswoman, he discovers Genevieve, shamed and cowering in the tower. But despite her facial scar and doubts about her character, Bowen is drawn to her and she to him.
This is a story about love and selflessness. Wanting what is best for the one you love even if it means you might lose them.
I love to read imperfect/scarred characters like Genevieve. She's scarred physically and emotionally but she is very strong. This is what I liked about Genevieve: she is a survivor. The chemistry between Bowen and her is incredible. It isn't an easy read as some of the violence and the clan is awful is difficult to read however it's a beautiful historic love story.

Also, there were quite a few mistakes in this book which caused confusion. Near the beginning, the author got Brodie and Bowen mixed up quite a few times which meant I had to reread to make sense of it. And on page 65 I think it was, the h mentions being looked after by her dad and brothers but later in the book she mentions that she never had siblings and it is clear from then on that she is an only child and never had siblings.
Wish I could claim a refund but I bought it too long ago. Thank God I've read other books by her which I enjoyed or else I may never have bought another one by her based on this book alone.
"I am not worth such a vehemence," She said, refusing to meet his gaze. He captured her chin and forced her look at him. His eyes were angry, and his lips were drawn into a tight line.
"You're worth it to me."
It starts were we left of in book one, after Eveline has been rescued from Ian, the guy that imprisoned and abused her. But this time the story follows Genevieve, who has been imprisoned by Ian in the McGugh Keep as well, long before Eveline. When Bowen storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finally finds a spark of hope for freedom. But even then, her path is uncertain. However, she can't stand being a prisoner any longer and decides to take off. That is until Bowen stirs something inside her that longs to be awaken. He touches a part of her that she long thought was lost. Bowen is captivated by her beauty and strength, her determination, and soon finds himself in love with her.
But what will happen when Genevieve tells him a secret that might turn the whole Montgomery's clan against her? Will he stand beside her, or will he turn his back on her, like everyone else? Will he give back her freedom, even if it means loosing her forever?
What i thought of Genevieve?:
I found Genevieve a very likable character, and i was connected to her from page one. Even after all she has been through her spirit is not broken, and she doesn't just give up, she fights. Every time i read about what has happened to her, and about her feelings, i go through what she is going through. It's just so sad, i had tears in my eyes practically the entire time i was reading.
What i thought of Bowen?:
Bowen was a very caring and loving character. The whole time i was preying for someone to defend and stand up for Genevieve, and there he goes, all knight in armor trying to rescue the princess. It was hard not to fall in love with him. And even though i did, i still loved Genevieve more. For me, she outshines Bowen, just a little.
If you have not read book one yet (Never Seduce a Scot), then i highly advance you to do so before reading this one. And no, you do not have to, but it's so worth it, because they are both amazing!
"If i should never be with a man again, i would want you to be the last," She whispered. "Show me Bowen. Show me what it's like."
And it's kind of shameful to admit, but i started crying a tiny bit on page 30. I just wanted to get inside the book, and hug Genevieve so tight she wouldn't be able to breathe.
Overall, Highlander Most wanted was a very well written and emotional book. It had a great heroine and it was a very good read, very romantic with the abused but strong heroine finding her one man. I definitely recommend this to readers who love HR and also to romance lovers in general.
