Synopsis: Two unlikely people meet in the strangest of circumstances – Meg and Caden. They both have their problems, and need each other for different reasons. Meg for her despair at being hunted as a witch, and Caden who wants to help his clan escape the poverty they have come to know.
Meg is running for her life from her father who killed his wife after accusing her of witchcraft. He thinks she has the letters that can be used to prove he is a traitor to his country, and should he intercept her, she might find herself burned as a witch too.
Caden intends to kidnap one woman if he wants to bargain his clan out of starvation and poverty, but he invites war as a Scotsman travelling onto enemy soil is against the law of the land.
Meg Boswell: She is captivated by Caden, a tall and well built Highlander. She establishes that it is love at first sight for her, but her being in the story also creates some of the most heart stopping moments in the novel.
Caden Macbain: Not used to being hit by Sasunnachs, Caden is caught off guard by Meg, she helped him so much in such a short time, and he sees a caring side to her not previously known. He, even though he is a brash Scotsman, and leader of his clan, isn’t averse to being swept off his feet by a beautiful woman.
Interesting Tidbits of Information: If you like history, but don’t want the boring lessons associated with it, then this romance novel will fill in the gaps in your education about Henry VIII, the Reformation and King James V.
Last comments on the novel: If you enjoyed Heather's previous works, then Captured Heart will be right up your street, and if you're just begging for more of her titles; then you need not wait much longer as Tangled Heart and Crimson Heart will follow this.
