Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series comes a new, richly drawn Scottish historical romance saga! The Renegade Scots series sweeps you into medieval Scotland and England and transports you into dangerous deceptions and daring feats with swoon-worthy heroes and fiery romances!

To protect herself, she’ll deny her powers. To save her, he’ll break every rule he’s vowed to live by.

Lillianna de Burgh knows all about the legend surrounding the women in her family - that true love awakens the gift of sight within them. But given the horrific betrayals the power has brought her ancestors, she wants no part in true love or the supposed gift. Avoiding her fate seems simple enough since men have proven time and again that they wish to use her, not cherish her, even her own kin. Thankfully, when she flees England to escape her evil uncle, she finds herself in the company of a seemingly hard-hearted Highlander who thinks the legend is nothing more than a myth. As they travel together, she comes to discover that behind Angus's cold facade lies a fierce and honorable protector, whose mere touch ignites the passion within her. Yet, the more she tries to resist it, the more she seems to fall.

Renowned Highland warrior Angus MacLorh lives by three principles: put country above self, protect family at all cost, and never become entangled with a lass - not again. So when his future king needs him to accompany the far-too-lovely Lillianna to safety, Angus agrees, confident he can keep her at a distance, as he does all women. Yet the gentle, fiercely determined lady intrigues and tempts him at every turn, and when his greatest enemy captures her, he finds himself breaking all his rules to save her.

As the fight for the Scottish throne embroils Lillianna and Angus deep in danger, enemies near and far hunt them, threatening their very lives. When the truth of the legend finally comes to light, can a woman determined to escape her destiny and a Highlander bent on facing his future alone overcome the barriers they’ve created and trust in their hearts to lay claim to the most glorious of loves?

A Great Follow-up to "OUTLAW KING"

This book has everything I look for in a book! Every chapter has intrigue, suspense, attraction, growing affection and trust, misunderstandings, interference by others and hurt feelings. Then there are the captures of both Angus and lillieanna and others by enemies wars breaking out. While I am familiar with the history of Robert The Bruce, I never knew the details of how the major wars and skirmishes came about. Julie has woven a story that makes each one seeable in the mind's eye and it is sooo very believable and tory interesting. (I boughtt another history book focusing on this bitter time in the war between England and Scotland). With England's cruel King Edward I (also/ known as Longshanks) ruling England and trying his best to destroy the Scots and take away all memory of their heritage, and Scotland without a strong leader in line to inherit the throne of Scotland, war was almost inevitable.

I believe you will enjoy this book as much as i have. It is one I will return to often.Tim Campbell is a wonderful narrator and really shines in this narration. Julie Johnstone has really done a wonderful job of relating history in a romance novel. I hearttily recommend this one!

Oh My Goodness!

Such a good book. I need more. The treachery of family members and enemies is unreal. I can't wait for the next instalment.

True Love

I absolutely loved this book! Angus’s devotion to Lillianna was so strong love had to grow. I also really enjoyed the touch of magic or fantasy with her seer powers. I couldn’t put the book down I had to find out what happened. Julie Johnstone is excellent at at bringing her characters to life and pulling you into the story.

Angus and Julianna

Really cute story of how a stubborn man and a hardheaded woman learn to deal with their pride, the effect of words on a relationship, trust, and true loyalty and love. Excellent read and great book 2 in the series. Complex characters and unpredictable plot. Love it, as always with Julie's books! Tim Campbell did a magnificent job (5 Stars) as narrator. I love listening to his amazing ability to breath life into my mental pictures of the characters!

Absolutely Fabulous!

Julie Johnstone writes another AMAZING tale of Medieval love and the sexy voice of Tim Campbell brings the story to life. A stubborn man, a woman afraid to love, danger, and intrigue...this story has it all. AND when you think there just might be a happily ever after Ms. Johnstone takes you on another journey making your heart stop; which only makes the Happily Ever After that much sweeter.

Disappointing

The story plot was just not believable. Fantasy is fun but this was not intriguing to me. I thought of stopping many times but I wasted my point.
Not worth it.
