    2. Claimed by a Highlander by Margaret Mallory is an exciting historical romance set in early 1500's Scotland.

I sees there is another books coming out!! I hope I dont have to wait to long!!!! ( I'm totally inpatient when it comes to great writers lol) Yummy highlanders, safe read, a must read!!!

    4. I’ll be honest, I’m not too fond of stories where a simple revelation or the simple truth could have resolved so many misunderstanding and could have prevented even more problems down the road, but then again the truth is hardly ever just simple.Rory is an honor bound man that will do anything to protect the innocent, even his would-be bride he’s never met. Sybil is so desperate to escape her horrid fate that will go as far as travel with the man that’s presented himself as his contracte [...]

    6. I guess this was an okay book if you exclude what a push over Rory is and his constant fight with his pride that gets him into all these petty fights with Sybil. I might even have given this book a higher rating if I read this a few years ago when I enjoyed more drama in my books. Now I'm just rolling my eyes because of how annoyed I am with the characters.Aside from those petty fights that Rory and Sybil had, I just couldn't stand how Sybil kept trying to make Rory the better person and to make [...]

    7. This Sybil Douglas and Rory Mackenzie's story. Unfortunately, I really didn't like Sybil. She basically deceived Rory at every turn. At first it actually made sense because she was afraid for her life and didn't want him deserting her in the middle of the Highlands. But then it got ridiculous - why would she lie to him during their wedding night? There was no reason for it. And Hector, the villain was like a horror movie villain. Every time you thought he was gone, he would pop back up again.But [...]

    8. An exciting, action-packed Scottish historical romance teeming with emotion, danger and intrigue “I’ve been wanting to kiss ye since the first moment I saw ye,” he said. “I’m going to do it now.” Sybil could not breathe, let alone form the words to object. When she moistened her lips with her tongue, she felt his heartbeat leap beneath her palm. Her gaze fixed on his mouth as he drew her to him ever so slowly. She had expected a sweet, teasing kiss, not this explosion of passion that [...]

    9. I don't believe Mallory can write a bad or mediocre highlander romance. I've read all of her other books and I can't understand why I let this one slip into my TBR file. As usual the book did not disappoint. I love Mallory's strong, alpha-possessive heroes and her ability to write a strong heroine who comes across as a strong, smart woman. Mallory's books are in my read again folder and I've read many of them multiple times. This one will go there too. Highly recommend this one if you love highl [...]

    10. I think Outlander spoiled me for Highlander romances. I just did not care for this tale. I finished it since it is part of the NJ Romance Writers' Golden Leaf contest and I need to read it to rate it. Nothing is really wrong with this book except even with so many battles and a crazy, power hungry uncle I still found it dull and predictable. The best part of this book is the historical note at the end where the author discusses the real life basis for the characters and Scottish history.

    11. 3,5 stelle. Sono stata tentata di dare un 4, perché nonostante un inizio noioso, la seconda metà del romanzo si riprende e diventa bella movimentata, con peripezie, intrighi e tentativi di assassinio, ma poi ho deciso di non esagerare.La scrittrice scrive bene, è molto scorrevole.Un netto passo avanti rispetto al primo romanzo della serie, che avevo trovato di una noia mortale. Qui i protagonisti sono più interessanti.

    12. Unfolding secrets kept me turning pages! Life has taught both Sybil and Rory not to give their trust lightly, but when their hearts begin to sway their minds, a series of lies and omissions--not mention medieval political intrigue and brushes with near-death--threaten to sever their growing bond. The story is long and fulfilling, the supporting characters well drawn, and in the end, Mallory delivers a happily ever after befitting these two strong characters.

    13. I am giving this book 3 and a half stars . It was interesting , lots of twists and turns but some of the chaos was a bit too far fetched for me . Like when she is jailed and turns and there is Rory to save her , much Too convenient by half

    14. Disappointed with this book. There were a lot of double standards and almost made the girl seem like a victim.

    15. Highland romance Just when you need a break from heavy reading -these kinds of warrior love stories satisfy me. Nice beach read.

    16. A treasure trove of every historial romance cliché ever - I am not ashamed to say, I did not finish this book. Because I had already read it. Multiple times. Written by other writers.

    17. Intrigue, mayhem & murderThese are all the things that make this book a good read! I love the story line and the willfulness of the heroine.

    18. A truly exciting and passionate historical Scottish romance!I've already posted my fav quotes working on my review now!4 1/2 Wine Glasses!

    19. "Since their wedding night, they had wasted precious time because they failed to trust each other."Pretty much sums up both books. While there is discovery, action, love their relationship felt disconnected. I just didn't see how she fell in live with him and though I liked his character, I felt like he was more infatuated with her. I felt like the whole political plot took up alot of the book and was repetitive from the first book. I also felt people who didn't deserve it have gruesome fates(br [...]

    20. "Claimed by a Highlander" was a really fantastic historical romance. Sybil's family is in the middle of a brutal war caused by her brother's antics/betrayal of his wife. The men have fled the country, leaving her alone and unprotected at the queen's mercy (or lack thereof). A highlander, Rory, comes and saves her in the nick of time- he is actually meant to be her husband, as her brother signed a marriage contract with him eight years before. Although Sybil has no desire to marry anyone, least o [...]

    21. Sybil Douglas has been forced to live a less than acceptable life since her family has spread to the wind in either exile or marriage. Hoping for a miracle and praying for salvation the last thing she needed was a man claiming he had a contractual obligation to marry her. Sybil wanted nothing to do with Rory MacKenzie but at this particular moment in her life he was all she could count on.Rory needed to make a match for himself that would benefit his clan not his heart but one look at Sybil and [...]

    22. CLAIMED BY A HIGHLANDER (THE DOUGLAS LEGACY Book 2) by Margaret Mallory is an intriguing Medieval Scottish Historical Romance. While, Book 2, it can be read as a stand alone. Fast paced, action packed, with thrills and chills. WOW! Holy, Highlanders, a Scot to the rescue!!

All the Douglas' girls have been used to further their families desire for power.Rory MacKenzie, gained a Scottish bride du [...]

    24. To stupid to like, no romance but lots of deathSpoilersSo uncle not only has the chieftain killed, but slaughters innocent people from other clans to start a war. Trys to kill his son many times and kidnapped his wife but even after all this once he is captured, you let him live based on his word. Um, what about all the people he killed, where was the justice for all of them. You are saying its OK that he killed women and child since he gave his word now that he will be a good man.This book made [...]

    25. Claimed by a Highlander by Margaret Mallory - Audiobook narrated by Derek Perkins - he's an amazing story teller. I read A LOT of historical romance books and Margaret Mallory always brings something unique to a story. Some authors toss in pages of fluff to stretch the length of a book. But with Mallory it's a page turner to the very end! Lady Sybil Douglas is my hero - A real bad ass! She had to be since her family saved their own ass and left her to fend for herself. What is typically the vill [...]

    26. I got this as part of a cheap bundle on , and I also read the first book in the series, which was too cheap-paperback-romance style for me, but a quick read regardless. This second entry in the series took forever to get to the point. It had nearly every Highland trope and plot point that I have ever heard of, and to be honest, the first third of the book seemed like shades of Outlander (and not in a good way). Then we get into the story and it just keeps dragging on and on, and on and on. If y [...]
