Anna Cowan gives the reader an exquisite ball of yarn that is "Untamed", we given the task to slowly unravel the strand of the story intertwined with memorable characters and something that will surprise the reader to the very end.

When Happy Ever After isn't enough, there's work to be done and so many chances to grab onto before it's to late.

There's something very appealing with two characters that are on different sides of the scope trying to find middle ground, understanding and love.

We first meet fun loving Lady Selina in Captured for the Captain's Pleasure, raised as a young girl in the highlands, she falls in love and has her heart broken when she's shunned for who she is.

Ian has had his hands full with trying to keep his clan together and trying to stay one step ahead of the authorities with smuggling. Things come to ahead when he comes across Selina again. He knows to stay away from the enemy English lord’s daughter of his clan, but the pull is to strong and things heat up with trouble comes a calling and throws these together and a second chance at love.


The differences between Selina and Ian w…
