This story was fantastic from beginning to end. I was hooked from the first page and could not put it down. Without reservation, I recommend this book if you love stories set in Scotland.
You will live a great adventure! You will not be disappointed by this book. I will definitely be reading more books by Ms. MacLean.

I was set out somewhat not to like the hero of this story, he had betrayed his closest friend in the previous book (for a good reason in his mind). Angus MacDonald was exiled from his clan for the betrayal and his home was eventually given to another after his father died. The daughter of the new Laird, Lady Gwendolen is prepared to defend her home after the death of her father, when Angus "The Lion" MacDonald comes along to overtake his former home. As a way of uniting the two clans, Angus declares he will marry her and their heirs will be Laird in the future.
She's resistant in the beginning to caring for a man who took her home, he's reluctant to actually begin to love his wife as he thinks it will make him weak. Through various twists and turns we get our happy ending, but it's pretty entertaining getting there. Definitely a book worth reading if you like Highlander romances!
What I didn't like: 90% of this story takes place in Kinloch castle and most of that in one bedchamber (there's a fair amount of sex which actually got a bit boring by the end). While the uprising in 1715 was mentioned, it really was only as background. There wasn't much history in this historical, though the setting was the Highlands. The main characters engaged in too much inner angst for my taste, which led to long passages of narrative which I found provided no new information, and some of which I skipped (never a good sign). Lastly, some of the dialog seemed inane. I finished it but just barely. It was easy to put down. I am not recommending this one and not buying the third in the series when it comes out. I know MacLean can write well and some of the other reviewers have said her earlier works are among their favorites, but like another reviewer, I was disappointed with this one.
