Review: How to Ensnare a Highlander by Michelle McLean

When Lady Elizabet Harding’s family is targeted by the notorious Highland Highwayman, she finds herself wounded and an unwelcome guest of the charming outlaw who’d ruined her reputation earlier that day. Elizabet only wants to get even for her family’s downfall, but the more time she spends with the scoundrel, the more complicated her feelings become.

By day, Laird John MacGregor graces the court of Charles II. By night, he exacts revenge on his enemies – one of whom is betrothed to the fiery heiress who has, quite literally, fallen into his arms. The daughter of one enemy and promised to another, Elizabet should be the last person John wants. Yet even as she exasperates him, she is all he has ever desired for himself. When her life is put in danger, he will do anything necessary to protect the women he never expected to love…even if it means they cannot be together.

It's quite an interesting historical romance, and I absolutely loved it. It's packed with action, adventure, and romance; a perfect mix. I loved both Elizabet and John, they are very well-written characters. Story is intriguing and kept me interested from the very beginning until the end. It's well paced novel. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend to all historical fiction fans.

John is playing the Highwayman's role to help his people and take revenge against his enemies. However, he is not a bad person. He has never harmed an innocent before... but now Elizabet is suffering because of him. It was one of his men whose mistake leads them to their current situation. He has no idea how to get out of it. And above all he is having feelings for her that he probably shouldn't.

Elizabet is rescued by the Highwayman. She can sense that he isn't an evil person. Although, the situation is not ideal, but she too can't help but feel attracted to this man. Two of them are either destined to be together or else become each other's ruin....

I loved this story! It's very entertaining read. I received a complimentary copy of it via NetGalley, for which I'm immensely grateful to the publisher.
