Publisher's Summary

Desire tempted them. Honor forbade them. Love ensnared them.

Legendary warrior Lachlan MacLeod has never encountered anything or anyone he could not conquer. But when his younger brother confesses his love for Bridgette MacLean - the only woman Lachlan has ever wanted - Lachlan turns away from the beautiful Scottish lass, vowing to be no more than her friend. Yet his need for Bridgette enslaves him and may well prove to be the one thing he cannot defeat.

Fiercely independent Bridgette longs to be treated as an equal to the men. She always imagined great battles in her future, not great love. Then Lachlan saw her as no one ever had and captured her heart, awakening new cravings inside her without realizing it. But when Lachlan's younger brother suffers a grave injury while saving her life, she feels unable to deny his plea for her heart. However, it is impossible to give what belongs to another.

Torn between their own desire and their loyalties, Bridgette and Lachlan must find the courage to grasp the passion awaiting them and face the pain their choice will cause. Yet even as they confront their future and love finally seems within their grasp, a fight for the Scottish throne divides the Highland clans and Bridgette becomes a pawn in a political game that threatens to tear her and Lachlan apart forever.

Warning

It was a brilliant book until the lead woman is raped. I wished there was a warning on this book.

Rape

If you don't mind a woman being raped and the emotional stress caused by the rape, then this is the book for you. I, personally, don't purchase a book to have to experience that through the heroine in the book. I like to be entertained and THIS was not entertaining.

Wonderfully written

It's always a tough read when a story addresses brutal acts against women and children. This story is no different. I felt raw emotion as I listened and at times had to stop to collect myself. But it was worth it in the end. It speaks well of the writer when you can feel that much emotion.

Another great one!

Mystery, romance, intrigue, deceit.... the perfect medieval romance performed by the oh so yummy to listen to Tim Campbell.

Heat Factor: steamy

Creditworthy? I bought it with the kindle version for much less than a credit... but I would gladly have used a credit.

Great series!!! Amazing 2nd book!

Usually the second book in a series is not as strong in plot, characters and the twists and turns. But this book crushes all of that!! Well worth the credit or cash!!! Can't wait to listen to the next book!
