"Dramatic and vivid...Scorching love scenes threaten to set the sheets aflame."-Publishers Weekly Starred Review In 15th century Scotland Clarissa of York is sent to be the king's mistress and produce an heir. She is a bastard of the English King, her royal blood is highly coveted, and she has never needed a miracle more. But the brusque Highland laird who kidnaps her is a bit too rough to be considered divine intervention. With rival lairds determined to steal Clarrisa from him and royal henchmen searching for her all over the Highlands, Laird Broen MacNicols has a mess on his hands. Though he stole Clarissa for political reasons, there's a magnetic attraction between them, and his betrothal to another is just one of the things standing in their way. But even an independentminded lady like Clarissa knows that a Highlander always claims his prize...

My senses are as taut as a piano string waiting to be plucked as I turn page after wonderful page." - Yankee Romance Reviews "Mary Wine does a fantastic job of weaving together a very troubled time in history, amazing descriptions of Scottish castles, the unyielding environment of the Highlands, and horror of battlefields. She engages all the reader's senses and pulls the readers into the time, place and action of the incredible characters. She weaves in the Scottish humor, sense of honor, Highland culture, beliefs, and fealty to clan. Best of all, she makes the reader feel the primal, sexual attraction of the hero and heroine. She delights with their posturing and their challenging each other as they find their way to awesome love that sparks and sparkles. Societal rules create trials and troubles for them, but their love transcends all and even reaches out to help others have and hold their own true loves. Highlander's Prize is another Mary Wine historical for the book shelf-a keeper to be enjoyed more than once." - Long and Short Reviews "I liked the historical background and the visual settings of the story. The romance is prominent but there is an underlying intrigue and political circumstance that add an extra obstacle of interest. This is an easy read and I recommend it to readers who enjoy passionate romance with a strong-willed and confident Highlander hero." - Martha's Bookshelf "THE HIGHLANDER'S PRIZE is an exciting and romantic adventure about a fantastic couple and their impossible love.

After reading this book you'll have to agree...love in the Scottish Highlands has never looked so good." - Romance Reviews "The love scenes are hot. The supporting cast has a story all their own and there is certainly a lot of potential for more books in a great new series. Wine is a great Scottish author and one I prefer to read over and over! 5 out of 5 apples from my book bag!" - Debbie's Book Bag "The Highlander's Prize is an excellent read, combining the fierceness and determination of the Highlanders with an unlikely romance that captured my attention and kept me reading late into the night." - Book Savvy Babe "Whenever I pick up a book by Mary Wine I know I'm going to be engrossed in the story for hours. 4.50 / 5 - Reviewer Top Pick" - Night Owl Reviews "A wonderful, sensuous, highly charged romance.
