The Highlander’s prisoner
There’s more to hardened outlaw Niall Corbett than meets the eye. Despite his merciless reputation, he’s on a mission he must defend with his life. One that means taking beautiful Fia Mackintosh prisoner for her own protection!
Fia may have dreamed of being swept away by a gorgeous Highlander, but never of being held hostage by a gang of outlaws! While her head screams for her to run, her heart beats a little too fast for her captor, a man she shouldn’t, yet can’t help but trust...
“A gentleman would never...”
“I would never count myself one of those, lass.” He leaned in closer. “So do not harbour hopes that I am anything but what you see before you.” He held out his hands and motioned around them.
“A thieving ruffian who would take a woman’s virtue without thought or concern!”
Even she looked surprised by the words she’d spoken.
“I would not say there would not be thought or concern if I took yours, Fia,” he said, moving forward until their faces were a scant few inches apart. “I would be very thoughtful.”
A becoming blush spread up her cheeks and she stammered something before speaking it clearly. “Is that the boon you claim?” she asked.
A shudder trembled through her, making him realise that fear was taking hold. He lifted his hand and cupped her chin. Sliding his thumb across those tempting lips, he shook his head.
“Nay. Not that,” he whispered. “Only a kiss.”
Author Note (#ulink_9c628ddb-1f75-556d-83bb-01fe1f5cafa5)
I am so thrilled to bring you the third book in my A Highland Feuding miniseries—Kidnapped by the Highland Rogue! I confess I am finding such inspiration from the true history of these two Scottish families and their centuries-long feud.
If you’ve read the first two books you’ve met my heroine, Fia Mackintosh. She was a young girl caught up in the dangerous feud in Stolen by the Highlander, and then we saw her as an insightful girl in The Highlander’s Runaway Bride. Now Fia is a young woman, who thinks that the stories and experiences of Lady Arabella and Lady Eva are soooo romantic. And she’s dreamt of a handsome Highlander kidnapping her and sweeping her into a torrid love affair that would lead to a happily-ever-after of her own. But when it happens, it’s not at all how she thought it would be—and yet it’s so much more at the same time.
Using the disguise of Iain Dubh, Niall Corbett cannot help himself when he meets Fia in a dangerous situation—he kidnaps her, believing it’s the only way to protect her. As we romance readers know already, nothing is ever that simple or clear, and this situation goes from bad to worse quickly. This hero is much, much more than he appears, and there is simply no way that Fia Mackintosh can ever be his. Or is there a way for Fia to find her coveted happy ending with this enigmatic rogue?
A hint before you read this—my next hero appears in this book. If you’ve read the first book, you’ve met him, too, but now he’s grown up and in need of a heroine. When he entered this book he acted quite heroically, so I just know he’s ready for his own story.

I’ve had the honour and pleasure of working with many editors while writing my thirty-nine novels, novellas and short stories over almost the last twenty years. Each one has taught me something about writing or my abilities. Each one has advised and suggested changes to strengthen my work. I’d like to dedicate this book to my first historical editor, Melissa Endlich, and to my current editor, Megan Haslam.
Melissa, your humour and gentle approach helped me through good and bad times of writing and life. Megan, your insightful comments helped me stay true to my stories and I’m glad we got the chance to work together (and again). I am so glad I’ve had the chance to work with each of you and thank you for your efforts in making my stories work!
