5 of 5 stars
This is the first book I've read by Ms. Howell and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The dialect was a bit hard to figure out at the beginning, but once I got used to it, the book flowed nicely. Lady Annys MacQueen is the widow of the laird David MacQueen and her cruel and power hungry kinsman, Adam, wants the keep and the rich lands for himself. Annys will do anything to protect the keep for her young son and that includes calling on Sir Harcourt Murray for help.
From the moment Annys and Harcourt meet again, the tension begins to build. Annys and Harcourt harbor a secret that could destroy them both. Their scenes together are filled with heat and longing, but they must put their personal feelings aside while they defend the keep. Ms. Murray does a fantastic job of slowing revealing the back story for these two. I felt myself being transported back in time and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what happened. Fans of historical romance will definitely enjoy this book. Recommended.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
This book will be available on February 24, 2015.
