Monica McCarty is the bestselling author of the Highlander trilogy (Highlander Untamed, Highlander Unmasked, and Highlander Unchained), which includes Highlander Untamed, Highlander Unmasked, and Highlander Unchained). Her fascination in the Scottish clan system began in the most unusual of places: a Stanford Law School comparative legal history course. She discovered that her legal job and her husband's brief but pleasurable career as a professional baseball player were not exactly a match made in heaven after a brief but enjoyable spell practicing law. So McCarty ditched her legal arguments in favor of handsome alpha males in Scottish historical romances. She and her husband, as well as their two young children, live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
