Fleeing with only her bow, horse, enormous pet wolf, and the cryptic clues hidden in her mother's medicine journal, healer Meg Boswell gallops north towards freedom, running from the man who falsely accused her mother of witchcraft. Cursed with magical healing abilities, Meg knows that if she's captured, she will die like her mother—atop a blazing witch's pyre.

Winter winds rip across the Highlands, pressing Chief Caden Macbain forward in his desperate plan to save his clan. He's not above using an innocent woman to bargain for peace if it keeps his clan from starving. But Meg isn't who Caden thinks she is, and when she kills a man to save the clan, he must choose between duty and her life. For although he captured her to force a peace, Meg's strength and courage have captured Caden's heart.

The Highland Hearts series is best enjoyed in order.

By Jonetta January 09, 2013

I love a good Scottish Highlander story and this one didn’t disappoint. Meg Boswell is on the run because her father is on his way home to have her “examined” to see if she’s a witch. Meg’s a healer with some added magical abilities and she doesn’t want to meet the same fate as her mother. She’s hea ...more

A solid highlander romance.

I liked Caden and Meg. They're endearing characters.
The romance was good and the action too.

The reason for 4 stars is that I had a feeling that I had already read this story somewhere... It was very similar to other highlander romance stories... ...more

Really enjoyable -- it's been a long time since I've read a Scottish kidnapping romance, but this book reminded me why I love that trope so much.

Full review to follow, but for now, 4.5/5 ...more

Meg Boswell is riding her horse towards the Scottish border with only her bow and arrows and her pet wolf Nickum as protection. She's running from her father whom she hasn't seen in years, not since he accused her mother of witchcraft and had her burned at the stake.

Meg knows she is different, and ...more

Every now & again I stumble across a story that is simply a joy to read. Captured Hearts was one of those rare stories.
Meg is fleeing to Scotland to escape charges of witchcraft. She is running from the same man who had her mother put to the fire for witchcraft. Sadly that man is Meg's own father. ...more

This story wraps loyalty, betrayal, treason, kidnapping, romance, witches, history and those magnificent Highland warriors all into one glorious read. I could simply not put it down and read it in one sitting. This is the third book by Heather McCollum that I've read and I must say I will keep readi ...more

A sweet Scottish Romance with just a hint of paranormal.

This is the story of Caden MacBain, chief of clan MacBain, and Meg Boswell, niece to the MacBain's fiercest enemy, the Munro's. It's just barely a Historical-Paranormal, although really the paranormal aspect was very small and limited to on ...more

Captured Heart by Heather McCollum is a wonderful addition to the many Highlander books that I love. In this particular sub genre you can either go for gold or be really cheesy. This book is definitely gold.

Running for her life Meg Boswell has to get to her aunt in the Northern Highlands. Her mothe ...more

This book was good. I do like highland tales. This is about Meg Boswell, who is running away to the north to freedom from her father. Her father thinks she is a witch and wants her to be cleansed from the healing ability. She is a healer. Her father falsely accused her mother of being a witch and ha ...more

Eek! First off, I got this paperback signed from Heather McCollum and I can't believe it! It's such an amazing story. Heather always manages to suck me in from page one until the very end. I love her heroes and heroines. They are always so strong and fierce, especially the women! Great story! ...more

By Judith February 25, 2017

This deserves another star.

A little witchcraft, a long feud, a treasonous father, a book of healings, a warrior laird and a runaway lady, unite to make this a really good one. Oh, I almost forgot. The lady's pet wolf.. ...more

By Adriana September 02, 2017

Slightly predictable yet still rather enjoyable.
Leading lady Meg has a bit of trouble making up her mind between a strong personality and being a pushover, but her leading man more than makes up for it. Extra props as well for a wonderfully nefarious villain. ...more

By Amy November 09, 2018

I really liked this book and the author's writing. So much passion, danger, traitors and secrets. Plus I'm a sucker for any heroine who has magical powers, feistiness and a pet wolf!

Caden was a wonderful leader and alpha male who was also sweet and caring. ...more
