What a delightful read!!! The book is filled with intrigue and romance. You know who the villain is right from the start, but figuring out how to prove it makes for an interesting read!
I liked Dirk right from the first book in the series. He seemed so deep. He wasn't a frivolous charmer like his friends. There was more to him. In this book, we finally find out his real identity and his history.
Lady Isobel MacKenzie is brave and intelligent. When she is attacked by her future brother-in-law, she flees the castle during a snow storm. Luckily, she is rescued by Dirk who takes her to his castle to keep her safe until he can return her to her brother's home.
There is all sorts of mayhem going on. Somebody is bent on killing Dirk and keeping him from his rightful place as Laird of the clan. Dirk knows who it is, but has no proof. Isobel wants to keep him safe and vows to spend time with the villain to find out their plans.
Then, aside from the attempts on Dirk's life, there is the issue of a possible clan war because of Dirk taking Isobel to his home rather than returning her to the home of her betrothed or her brother.
The book is filled with action.
