A Reader's Opinion: CLAIMED BY THE BOUNTY HUNTER by Emma Prince

Updated: Feb 4, 2020



Adventure and steamy romance come together in CLAIMED BY THE BOUNTY HUNTER! Emma Prince is a new author for me and I so much enjoy a good Highland romance, so I was excited to try this book. Set during the time of Robert the Bruce, CLAIMED BY THE BOUNTY HUNTER follows Kirk MacLeod and Lillian Fitzhugh's journey across the Highlands. Kirk is requested, except it's really more of an order, by Bruce to basically become a double-agent and spy on a group of mercenaries who kill and kidnap women, children, and sympathizers with the Scottish cause. When he infiltrates the group, he's given a contradictory order to kidnap Lillian. From there, he must decide if his mission is more important than the attraction and affection he feels for Lillian. It's a touch cliche in places, but I still enjoyed Kirk and Lillian's adventures and romantic spark.

CLAIMED BY THE BOUNTY HUNTER is a story of murder, secrets, and lies, and it's a nice escape and fun read. Fans of Highland romance novels are sure to enjoy the writings of Emma Prince.
