This book is extremely well written and very emotional. The story sucked me in right from the start in a way I haven't been sucked in in a long time. The hero and heroine have such compassion and are so well written that you just can't stop wishing for their happy ending. The historical facts are so detailed that I couldn't get enough of it. If there had been a higher rating than five stars - this book would have gotten it! I highly recommend this book to all historical romance lovers!

I am just sitting here with my heart full as I turned that last page. There was so much emotion and heart in this story of two souls who where meant for each other although neither knew it. Diana, the Earl of Cronwall's daughter is almost broken inside. Her father has been trying to marry her off and with each refusal he has now locked her away. Evander has come to take her as his bride, needing to obtain her dowry in order to feed his starving people in Scotland. He is such a kind man and has s ...more

Wow, this was an emotional and heart wrenching story. How can a father treat his daughter with such cruelty? Diana has been abused emotionally by her father most of her life, however he has gone too far this time. Evander has a heart of gold and his treatment of Diana is heartwarming. I loved both Diana and Evander and my heart went out to both of them. Oh and I absolutely fell in love with the animals, Zeus, Hera and of course Kitzi! This was a beautiful story about a laird wanting to save his ...more

A wonderful romantic story.

A definite 5 star book. The story started with two miserable people, with terrible problems. I was so drawn in from first paragraph and kept there till HEA end. The heroine Diana had such a sad beginning, I felt so sorry for her, she was very wounded, but so strong and brave. The hero,Evander had such sadness in his problem. The story had a very interesting beginning, and continued that way till very end. It was very hard to put it down, I just had keep reading to see

Another great by Madeline Martin. Madeline’s writing is just amazing and her stories are so original. The Highlander’s Untamed Lady, book 3 in the Highland Passions series, is no exception. What so intrigues me in this story is the use of 2 wolfs and her descriptions are so clear I can picture them both in my mind. This wonderful story is both exciting and sad at the same time and I love her use of strong women figures. I just loved how feisty Lady Diana Stuart is and the kind and understanding ...more

Ms. Martin never disappoints with her books. Her characters come.alive in the page and you will want to keep reading until the end. She always has a wonderful story line that. Will keep you entertained throughout her books and this one is no exception.

Evander is a Scottish laird who is desperate to save his clan from starvation and will do anything to save then even if it means marrying a English Lady with a large dowry sight unseen.

Laird Evander Makenzie's people are starving and he receives an offer from Lady Diana's father of a huge dowry if he marries his daughter, and Evander agrees. Lady Diana was imprisoned by her father and breaks out only to be captured by Evander and then the plot thickens. Both have haunted pasts, both are looking for happiness.

This is a story about two strong and passionate people who are thrust into a situation that changes both of their lives. It's a story of patience and trust, but it is also

Diana the Earl of Cornwalls daughter longs for freedom she has never had it and all her father has ever offered her is cruelty. Evander only wants to save his people from starving and will do anything to help them even taking a very un willing bride. There story is both beautiful told and tragic both have suffered some form of loss and both need each others love. Another wonderful read by Madeline Martin. I was allowed to read advance copy of this story and this is my honest review.

This was originally in Mists and Moonlight , now released as it’s own book .
I’m so glad , because I missed it before .
I love the tenderness of this book , from Evander especially , what a wonderful character , he deserves his HEA .
I can also understand Diana’s reluctance to form any bonds , she had such a hard life .
This story was both heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time .
Wonderfully written by Madeline Martin and another to add to her impressive collection of superb books .

I’m happy to admit that with most books it takes me a little while to get into them and become invested in the story, but not this book! From the beginning it grabbed hold of me and wouldn’t let go. Evander is sweet, patient, understanding and yet manly, a warrior and tough when he needs to be. Diana is broken on the inside but a fighter, both for herself and her wolves. This book is now one of my all time favourites and will be one I reread many times over.

I did enjoy reading this book. I liked the plot but I wished it would have done a few years later at the end. I felted really bad for Diana for how she had been treated by her father. Evander was very like able and I liked the chemistry between him and Diana. I how there will be more books in the future.

I enjoyed this story. It was a quick and fun read. I loved Diana's pets and her strong facade. It took the caring from Evander to break it down and for her to find true happiness and love. The touches of myth and legend brought a little of the paranormal to their romance. I recommend this story.

I received an ARC of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Laid Evander Mackenzie is in a tough place with no money and no food, most of his people starving. When he gets the chance to marry Lady Diana Stuart for an handsome dowry, he jumps at the chance. What he doesn't know is that his bride to be is a hell cat. She can fight, look after herself and comes with a pair of deadly wolves.
Diana has never known love and tenderness since her mother died. Her father has tried to control her wild and stubborn nature and failed spectacularly. She's had to endur

An excellent series

Each story is unique and difficult to put ďown. The storyline flows easily and the characters interacted well. Many times when you read series the word become repetitive, not so with this series
