This new historical romance from May McGoldrick pits one spirited lass against her biggest challenge yet: a Highland lord who has no desire to lose his heart.

Innes Munro has the ability to “read” a person’s past simply by touching them, but her gift comes with a heavy price: her freedom. Forced to stay at desolate Castle Girnigoe, Innes never expects to be drawn to the wounded warrior who haunts its dark passages and challenges her at every turn.

Conall Sinclair, the earl of Caithness, carries the scars of battles with the English and the lash marks of their dungeons, but the wounds that fester within give him even greater pain. Isolating himself from his clan and the rest of the world in a tower perched on the wild Scottish coast, Conall is reluctant to let the spirited Innes close to him, however neither can deny the growing passion that ignites with every look, every touch.

But can Conall ever love a woman who can read his darkest secrets and feel the pain he hides… and can love really tame all fears? As dangerous forces close in, Conall and Innes must take the ultimate leap of faith and forge a bond of trust that will save them both…or lose each other forever.


My Thoughts: 

Taming the Highlander by May McGoldrick is a captivating addition to her mesmerizing Medieval Historical Romance, “The Scottish Relic” Trilogy, Book 2. But can be easily be read as a stand alone. However, I would definitely suggest reading Book 1, “Much Ado About Highlanders”, which is another fantastic Scottish Historical Romance. It sets up some background for the rest of this Trilogy. “Taming the Highlander” is set against the backdrop of the Wild Scottish coast.

Conall Sinclair, is the actual earl of Caithness, however, he has turned the reign of his title and his clan to his younger brother. Conall carries the desperation, the hurt, the battle scars, even the lash marks from being in an English dungeon, as a prisoner, after the devastating battle with heavy losses against the English. He carries much guilt.

Innes Munro, has a gift, that could have her charged as a “witch”. She has the ability to “read” a person’s past simply by touching them. She also has the second piece of the Scottish Relic others are seaching for and willing to kill, whomever has the Relic. It carries some powerful knowledge, that some would kill to obtain.
Conall finds that Innes calms his inner beast and soothes his tortured soul. He is attracted to her. from the time he meets her, as Innes is to him. She can feel his pain and inner angst. Sparks fly, passion ignites and love blossoms. But can Innes be saved from the man pursuing the Relic holders? Can Innes and Conell find their HEA or will they lose all?
Some of the characters from “Much Ado About Highlanders” re-appear.

A captivating, mesmerizing and intriguing Scottish tale that will have the reader’s heart pounding, as they turn pages of “Taming the Highlander.
From the first page to the last and beyond, readers are sure to be captivated with the characters, and the compelling and powerful storyline.
Ms. McGoldrick is a brillant and masterful storyteller. Fans of Scottish myths, Highlanders, intrigue, adventure and romance will be captivated by “Taming the Highlander”. Highly recommended! I can’t wait to read the finale of “The Scottish Relic” Trilogy. A must read Scottish Romance with a element of the Paranormal! Awesome read!.
