Meet the siblings of Clan MacLeod. This first trilogy by author Monica McCarty was released back to back in 2007. The trilogy centered around the Chieftain of the Clan and his siblings. The time period is set during the early 1600’s taking the readers back to days when King James was the ruler and trying to tame and set rules for the Highlanders.
Monica has wonderful special features on her website for each of her books. If you click here you can view pictures of the places mentioned in this trilogy and read excerpts for each book. The Chieftain and his siblings are loosely based on historical characters of that time period.
So without further ado meet the heroes and heroines of the MacLeods of Skye Trilogy:
She has a year to make him love her… Isabel MacDonald agrees to a handfast marriage with Rory MacLeod, her clan’s bitterest enemy in order to end a deadly feud. But the handfast is only a cover to gain her access to his castle—and with a little seduction, his heart. But her treacherous plans are immediately tested by the fearsome Rory, a powerful Highland chief who embodies everything she admires. Soon Isabel has found the place in the family she’s always dreamed of with the man she must betray, and her only hope of happiness is to escape her own dangerous web of lies.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer… Rory’s duty as Chief of Clan MacLeod is clear: He’ll obey the king’s directive to handfast with the MacDonald lass—but under his own terms. As a handfast is only required for a year, at that point Rory plans to return this unwanted handfast bride to her family and forge a different marriage alliance. But his plan to keep his distance from his unwanted bride is challenged by the beautiful seductive siren who proves impossible to ignore. And when he catches her snooping and removes her to his bed to watch over her, Rory finds himself wishing that the year would never end.

Flora MacLeod is determined to avoid the sad fate of her mother—bartered between rival clans through four unhappy, politically-arranged marriages. Now Flora, considered the greatest marriage prize in the Highlands, has become a political pawn herself. Despite the determination of no fewer than three powerful Highland Chiefs to force her hand, she has vowed never to become any man’s prize. Flora’s resolve is soon put to the test by the fiercely handsome, enigmatic man who’s kidnapped her for a ransom she’ll never pay…her heart.
Lachlan MacLean has gotten more than he’s bargained for. The battle-hardened Chief has kidnapped the beautiful heiress with the intention of wooing her for marriage. But the gruff Highland chief isn’t used to wooing women, especially not the most exasperating, stubborn woman he’s ever met. And when the curse surrounding an old tragedy puts Flora’s life in danger, Lachlan realizes his ploy may well have cost him a chance at love.
Highlander Untamed was the one that started it all for me. It remains one of my top 3 favorites of all Monica’s books. I love this type of story line. Love Rory..look at that cover. She has some of the best eye candies on her covers. This trilogy was full of adventures spanning from the highlands to the lowlands of Scotland. The men were sexy, ruggish, and untamed. The women were resourceful, strong, and lovable.
