Rory is so bound by duty that it strangles him which makes him stale as a character.
Same song and dance from start to finish. Even the steam lacks lustre. View all 19 comments. Roderick -Rory- MacLeod da tam olarak bu erkeklerden biriydi. Feb 17, Laura the Highland Hussy rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review is long overdue. Highlander Untamed is what started my love affair with Highlanders. I think that Rory is the absolute epitome of the clan chief who values honesty and loyalty, and whose main focus is for the good of his clan. Unfortunately the MacDonald clan is ruthless and is their most hated enemy.
Rory’s sister Margaret had been married to Isabel’s uncle the MacDonald, who used her and retu This review is long overdue.
Rory’s sister Margaret had been married to Isabel’s uncle the MacDonald, who used her and returned her. And she was in an accident that cost her the use of her eye, and scarred her face. When Isabel met her, Margaret wore an eye patch that was just horrid. Now Isabel is quite the dutiful niece and is planning to snoop for her mccargy, until she realizes that her uncle might just be wrong.
She begins to admire her husband more and more. She is supposed to seduce him, but he won’t be seduced. Rory’s plan is to return her a virgin and pretend the year-long handfasting never happened.
Eventually they uighlander succumb, of course ; One thing that’s really cool about this book is that it uses real people, and real history. The Fairy Flag the MacLeods have existed. The “War of the One-Eyed Woman” was true. The characters lived and Untajed McCarty breathed new life into them. So Rory throws her out. That scene is just heartbreaking. She goes back to the MacDonald clan in shame, and more than anything she feels that she has to prove to Rory that she’s innocent.
Their reunion scene is so beautiful. She and Rory of course live happily ever after, and what’s highlader is that there’s a little bitty side utnamed with Margaret, who maybe didn’t realize that the patch she wore was worse than the scar.

Great romance, and a great heroine. I liked how she grew up and realized hgihlander her uncle was the villain, not her husband. Her husband finally loosened up a bit and there is one line in this book that several years later as I write this review, I’ve never forgotten: View all 17 comments.

Blessed with incomparable beauty, Isabel MacDonald is prepared t From the cover: McCarty does a great job of setting the stage early on and building the story word by word, page untamef page until I was left wishing that both sides could win.
She did a fantastic job of taking the characters who are really just words on a page and making them into living, breathing people that I cared about. View all 15 comments.

Ha estado muy bien, es un libro entretenido pero simple, si os gusta el tema de los Highlander y el romance os lo recomiendo. Apr 06, Alba M. Este libro empieza con drama, ya para hacernos sufrir de buenas a primeras. La hermana de Rory, estaba en un matrimonio a prueba con Sleat MacDonald, pero el tipo es una mala pieza, cruel y despiadado e, intentando humillar tanto a Margaret como a todos los MacLeod, manda de vuelta a Margaret con una mdcarty cicatriz en la cara y subida en su caballo a ella sola.
Highlander Untamed : A Novel
No es que ella fuese para eso, no, ella iba para espiar a Rory, encontrar una entrada secreta y el arma secreta de los MacLeod.
Bajate del pedestal en el que te has subido, chata. Que horror de protagonista de verdad. Es que me vuelvo a acordar de ella y me entra una rabia que me da algo.
En cuanto a Rory: Pero ya sabeis, esta solo soy yo y mi enfado hablando jajaja Nov 04, Cristina rated it liked it Shelves: When it comes to highlanders, Monica McCarty takes the cake. Unfortunately, this one wasn’t as good as the others. Perhaps the whole betrayal thing didn’t work out as I’d hoped.

Highlander Untamed (MacLeods of Skye, book 1) by Monica McCarty
The heroine, did she fight back? Oh she was perfect in every way; beautiful and strong, fiery and smart Yah she was physically beautiful, we hear so many odes to that untamde. Anyway, my 1st read of Monica McCarty was not fun or even interesting.
It was pretty predictable storywise and yes, boring! But, everyone knows that Rory The MacLeod is the best warrior along with all the MacLeod warriors he trains and leads. His family contains his younger brother Alex, sister Margaret and half-sister Fiona and his step-mother.
But the MacLeods have years of feud with the MacDonalds. It started with the MacDonald of Sleat spurning and humiliating Margaret and rejecting the handfast between them. Rory vows revenge on Sleat and it has been going on for the last 2 yrs.
Now, King James has asked to stop this feud and bloodshed by another handfast. Trouble is, Isabel is a MacDonald but that is why James wants them to stop all this by this handfast.
But the MacLeods believe that the Fairy Flag has a blessing on them because legend has it that MacLeods are descended from the fairies.
