The Lockhart brothers' quest for an ancient family heirloom has proved fruitless...and an unpaid loan has left them indebted to their rival, Payton Douglas. With no recourse, the Lockharts offer Payton their most valuable commodity: their sister Mared's hand in marriage. Raised to despise the Douglas name, Mared outwardly agrees to the marital bargain for the sake of her family; secretly, she concocts a plan to ensure Payton will not wish to marry her. Seeing the handsome, virile laird Payton face-to-face, however, threatens a centuries-long enmity - and awakens Mared's deepest desires.

Loved the stubbornness of the woman and the fortitude of Peyton. I laughed so much at the things she does to get even with him all the while never realizing how in love she was. Surprises twists and turns make this book interesting and so enjoyable. I love the way you are taken along the ride.

In AD 1282, James de Wolfe, the endearing and gentle brother, is killed in Wales as the Welsh rebel against Henry III...or was he? Five years later, tales of a Welsh warrior known as Blaidd Cryf, or Blayth the Strong, are making way to English ears along the Welsh Marches. A Welsh warrior who can somehow read the minds of the English armies is rising to power among the last princes of Wales. Rumors come from Wales that Blayth the Strong is none other than James de Wolfe.

I was reluctant to buy this book from the summary but decided because I had purchased the other two that I really should finish the series. I am beyond thrilled that I did, this book blew away the other two. It was extremely exciting and steamy. I’m looking forward to a new book from Mary Wine. I have all her others at this point.

I was scared, appalled, on the edge of my seat, happy, thrilled and excited. I cried from terror and from their pain together and cried again from happiness. I loved Jackson’s tenacity and endurance to find his true love and bring her home. Their tenderness toward one another was wonderful. Please don’t miss this whole Drake series, it’s just fabulous
