Helpful Hints


The war for Scotland’s freedom continues as King Robert the Bruce battles on. At his command is an elite army of trained warriors, soldiers dedicated to their king, their country—and to the remarkable women they love.
Prized for his unbeatable tracking skills, Ewen “Hunter” Lamont accepts a dangerous assignment: locate a missing undercover courier. But this is no ordinary target. Ewen has met his prey before as “Sister Genna,” a fiery, forbidden woman forever etched in his memory after one stolen, sinful kiss. Now that he knows her real identity, he’s more determined than ever to keep her safe. But without the protection of the veil between them, fighting the allure of the beautiful lass may be the toughest battle this extraordinary warrior has ever faced.
After her ill-fated attempt three years ago to rescue her twin sister, Janet of Mar has found salvation acting as a royal messenger—until she surrenders to a darkly handsome warrior whose rough, sensual kisses stir feelings the woman in her can’t deny. But when betrayal leads to danger, and a crucial communiqué is put in jeopardy, Janet has no choice but to put her faith in the hunter who can find anything—perhaps even her heart.

Praise for The Hunter
“[Monica] McCarty breathes life into her memorable characters as they face dangerous adventures. The fresh plots, infused with romance and passion, are also brimming with history and drama. She’s outdone herself with this fiery story of a forbidden love. What a fantastic addition to the series!”—RT Book Reviews
“McCarty creates an enjoyable romance with torrid chemistry, appealing characters, and believable historical situations.”—Publishers Weekly
The Hunter is another strong addition to an excellent ongoing series about the lives and loves of the Highland Guards. . . . The research of the time period is very well done, and with an earnestly believable personal story woven in seamlessly. This is another highly enjoyable action-filled read for fans of the series, but can easily be read standalone.”Fresh Fiction
“McCarty is keeping her Highland Guard series fresh, with spectacularly riveting plots and fabulously romantic couples. . . . McCarty is a master at writing Highlander romance. . . . If you’ve not read this series yet, then I strongly suggest that you do. The Hunter is a must read for all historical romance readers.”—Night Owl Reviews
“The adventures of the Highland Guard never disappoint in providing excitement and political intrigue in this series. The historical aspects of the era are finely woven into the wonderful storytelling. . . . But, the romance is the real jewel this time and made The Hunter a truly exceptional story.”—The Book Nympho
Praise for Monica McCarty
“Monica McCarty is a master of blending fact and fiction.”—Romance Junkies

The Hunter
Average rating
4.6 / 5

I was a bit disgusted with the male character for not seeing a ladies importance and value. This book didn't read as easy as the rest - because of his view of woman. It was nice the read about the previous characters again. And at the end it was a nice read that I enjoyed.

He says it like it is...
April 4th, 2015
Ewen Lamont is a man of few words and when he does open his mouth to speak, he says it like it is. In other words, he tends to put his foot in it most of the time. I loved this book. The way he had with words made my laugh often. It was a welcome break from the ever so serious conflict filled The Recruit. The story about Janet and Ewen was nonetheless a sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat type of story and you couldn't help but get drawn into the dangers of what ordinary churchmen and women faced by giving their loyalty and sometimes their lives to Robert the Bruce.
