Captured Heart by Heather McCollum

Date Read: November 2012

Genre: Historical, Romance

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.

First Thought when finished: Captured Heart was a fantastic historical romance that made me swoon several times. I think all historicals should make you do that at least once 🙂

Quick Thoughts: Captured Heart is probably my 2nd favorite historical read this year. It contained all the elements I love: strong man, stronger woman, great setting, evil villain, swoon-worthy moments, strong family, and a touch of magic. The story was well paced and the characters were really well done. I fell in love immediately with all of the McBains and loved how they treated Meg (with the exception of a few). Caden was made of pure hotness and he was the kind of man you would want to have on your side. Caden and Meg together were just sizzling hot and their romance made me smile.

Final Thought: Captured Heart swept me away and made me smile!

  1. Ooh, I think I want to read this one! After a long break, I’ve finally picked up a couple historical romances and remember why I loved them so much. This one sounds like it’s a great re-starter for me!

  2. I wouldn’t have pegged this a historical read based on the cover and boy that is a smoking hot cover talk about abs. If this rates as a favorite then it must be good. You are reading so many cute holiday reads right now. THey all look like fun!

  3. I kind of totally forgot today was the 28th until i woke up this morning (darn holidays messing up my timeline!)… hot reads will be back next month… anyhow, I’m gonna have to put this one on my want-to-read list 🙂

  4. So. I didn’t even need to read your review to know I wanted to read this book, I simply licked the cover and knew it was for me. Wait. Not licked. Looked. I looked at the cover and knew it was for me:) But then I did read your review and if this is the second best historical you’ve read this year then it’s going on my Kindle today. Get ready for me Caden!
