Lady Mairi MacKenzie is humiliated after the Earl of Seaforth passed her over and married his ward. Now Mairi's father is dragging her to a Highland event for all the clans. All she wants to do is hide in her chamber, not be paraded around the games. Duncan MacRae has been in love with Mairi for years and had always stepped aside for Seaforth. Once the betrothal was broken, he asked her father for permission to court her, only to be dismissed and refused. When Mairi wanders alone into the woods, the trouble begins and only Dunn can save her. Will she change her mind about Dunn's proposal and see him for the man he truly is?
I've read the other books in the series and this one was enjoyable as well although I though Dunn was a little sappy. He's this hardened warrior and I thought there was a bit too much internal musing for him. I was also a little disappointed about Dunn's treatment by Seaforth especially after Dunn's loyalty for years. He didn't seem to have his back at all and let him to his own devices. The plot moved along nicely and there was plenty of action to keep the story moving. Despite these criticisms, I enjoyed the book. Fans of Scottish romances will enjoy this book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review and I was not obligated to leave a review.
