Mairi Maclean is kidnapped on her wedding day by the enemy ofher dead husband. Taken north to the water-surrounded Kisimul Castle, she is held captive in the name of retribution. But The Wolf of Kisimul Castle soon learns Mairi is not a docile pawn in this game of war between neighboring Scots. Nor will she be frightened into walking down the aisle to wed the fierce Highland chief.

Alec MacNeil is set on revenge. When he finds his enemy dead, he takes his wife to replace the one that was murdered. An eye for an eye. A bride for a bride. But Mairi is more tiger than kitten and refuses to bend to his will. Set stubbornly against one another, the passion that flares between them threatens to tear Alec’s strategy to shreds.

'The Wolf of Kisimul Castle by Heather McCollum is Book Three in the "Highland Isles" series. This is the story of Mairi Maclean and Alec MacNeil.  I have read the other book in this series (and LOVED THEM!) but feel this can easily be a standalone book.

Heather McCollum has done it again, my fellow Scottish romance book-loving friends. Book 3, The Wolf of Kisimul Castle, was just as intriguing and engaging as the previous two books in her Highland Isles series.

Ugh, Kids
I do not like kids in my romances. I think they ruin the chemistry. Because this is my personal taste and not a reflection on the writing or story I still gave the book 5stars. Apart from the children this was a very good book. I liked Alec, he was sweet and sexy. Mairi was a little boring, ...more
