Publisher's Summary

The Highlands of Scotland, Autumn 1344..... She had won his heart without trying... and he can only pray for the chance to give her his. When Findley McKenna returns after his battle with the English to offer Maggy Boyle a home amongst his clan, he finds only death and destruction instead of the young widow who has stolen his heart. The only things left of her home is the burned out hut and decaying bodies of the auld people Maggy has taken care of for the past three years. With only a prayer, his Highlander heart, and a bit of bloodied plaid to cling to, Findley will crawl through hell if he must, in order to find Maggy and her sons and avenge the massacre before him.

She had won his heart without trying, and he can only pray for the chance to give her his. How can she place her trust or her heart in the hands of a man she barely knows and maintain her freedom and keep her secrets hidden? Maggy has secrets, and her own hell to crawl through, before she can give her trust or heart to any man. Fearful that the uncle of her late husband will force her into a marriage with another cold and vindictive man, she goes into hiding to keep her true identity secret and her adopted sons together. After her home is destroyed and her young son kidnapped, those secrets begin to unravel, one agonizing thread at a time. How can she place her trust or her heart in the hands of a man she barely knows and still maintain her freedom and keep her secrets hidden? Findley McKenna is her last vestige of hope at keeping both.

Made Me Smile

This is the second book in the series which follows Findleys journey to bring Maggy and her boys back to the safety of the MacDougall clan. {As I stated in my review of the first book, ‘Laiden’s Daugher’, this is not a historically detailed series but rather light romances with some historical elements}.

This is a feel good adventurous Highland story that is humorous, touching and made me smile more than once. Findley is a Highlander with a big heart. He is so smitten with Maggy that he becomes a fool for love and even lacks judgment at times. Maggy is a strong mother of 5 who tends to be overly secretive, sensible and melodramatic. Findley, Maggy, the boys, Wee William and the highlanders embark on an adventure to heal the wounds of the past and build on hope and love for the future. The narration was great!

If you enjoy a good Highland Romance story without detailed sex scenes then this book is for you.

What a difference a good narrator makes

I'm glad I continued with this series. I was ready to stop after the first book because of the distracting narration but this book was read by Brad Wills and he did a marvelous job. The story was good and held my interest. Maggie was a strong character and her care for her boys was evident. Her actions made me laugh at times. I liked Findley and, of course, Wee William. Overall, this was a good book.

Another Great story and addition to the MacDougall Clan. This one had a LOt of turns in it, making a suspenseful story. Loss and Found, Fear and Cruelty, Desire and Love. Well this is another great read. this story is about Findley and his trials to win Maggie. Recommend this book. worth the credit

I enjoyed the humor

There are some very funny scenes that made me laugh out loud. Sweet heroine and an even sweeter hero. This was love at first sight for Findley but it took a bit longer for Maggie. I loved Wee Williams character. Can’t imagine a man that size being so gentle and so tough at the same time. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. The narrator did a great job as well. One of my favorite lines from the book, “I’m not just blowing air up your kilt”. :)

Highland story that glows from author's pen

Any additional comments?

In general, Suzan Tisdale’s writing style moves you right into the story. Her stories cater to my heart and the goodness of men—well some men, that is, who can be called heroes. There are moments to her bard which I liken to chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. They melt on the palette where one is not enough. I’ve been thoroughly delighted with this series. I thrill to know I’ve still one more to read. On the whole her stories, even though there is plenty of internal and external conflict, emphasize the appeal of her hero and heroine which have sterling characters. Consequently, the reader is uplifted throughout the read rather than disgusted with the lot of man. This here is one lass who will pick up any story Suzan Tisdale puts her pen to.<br/><br/>Findley belongs to the McKenna clan where many a good man protects his own. It’s a clan any warrior would be proud to protect for their laird is fair. From the moment he met Maggy, he knew her to be special, special to him. His challenge was for her to see he could be the same to her. A man of patience and tenderness along with a huge heart, let alone his handsome features would make him a catch for any woman. But beauty and love are not so easy for the plucking. Maggy truly tries his patience and is someone to contend with when angered. She hides her past, making it even harder for him to protect her. So more times than not, they are at odds further frustrating our hero. He needs for her to swoon with admiration at his feet, not the bantering and bickering they so much engage. But all made this a glorious, entertaining story.<br/><br/>This is a story where a woman learns to accept adversity, to live alone because it’s safer, to be thought dead by her family. Her past continues to haunt her, always looking behind her back. She’s strong, intelligent and lives through physical hardship; out in harsh weather, little food, tortuous days on horseback, poisoned twice, and maltreated by men out to do her harm. But through it all she holds to her dignity and like a lioness, fights for her children.<br/><br/>Because of her past, Maggy didn’t trust men for they all had some kind of string attached to what they offered. She certainly couldn’t give in to Findley’s charm and had a very hard time trusting him. But she needed help and he offered. What did he want in return? She had secrets to keep, MUST keep and getting close to anyone may put them in danger and expose her.<br/><br/>We don’t pick whom we fall in love with and Maggy realizes she’s in love with Findley, but knows they can never be together. The reader doesn’t even know why, so as Findley learns of it, we do too. There are words of hurt, though they come not with hatred. Some lovely scenes very well written. Keep your tissue close.<br/><br/>It takes faith, trust and love to unravel the noose tightening around Maggy’s neck. Luckily Ms. Tisdale supplies them all. We get our happy ever after, whereby one more of the MacDougall clan is happily partnered with the love of his life.<br/><br/>I enjoyed many of the characters who I had learned to love in the other two books of the series I’ve read. They are all so brawn and kind. Wee William played a large part in this story, although this wasn’t ‘his’ story for that comes in book 3. He has some very good advice for Maggy. He told her not to let her adversary have power over her, for at that moment he wins.<br/><br/>The man behind Maggie’s fear was Laird Brockton, her guardian. He was a cruel man who enjoyed manipulating her. Narrator Brad Wills’ depicted this scum of a man with perfection. He uses wonderful voices for the children, very authentic, tugging the reader’s heartstrings to witness the purity of a child’s heart and how they can be pawns of a larger game. He does such a convincing rendering of Maggy, her emotions become mine. Lovely, lovely job, as usual.
