Publisher's Summary

Wicked intrigue unfolds as an unlikely marriage leads to a path of risky desire in the lush, green Scottish Highlands.

Born into riches and groomed in English luxury, Margot Armstrong didn't belong in a Scottish chieftain's devil-may-care world. Three years ago she fled their marriage of convenience and hasn't looked back - except to relive the moments spent in wild, rugged Arran McKenzie's passionate embrace. But as their respective countries' fragile unity threatens to unravel, Margot must return to her husband to uncover his role in the treachery before her family can be accused of it.

Red-haired, green-eyed Margot was Arran's beautiful bride. Her loss has haunted him, but her return threatens everything he has gained. As the Highland mists carry whispers of an English plot to seize McKenzie territory, he must outmaneuver her in games of espionage - and seduction. But even as their secrets tangle together, there's nothing to prevent love from capturing them both and leading them straight into danger.

Wait...huh??

I listened to this entire book hoping at some point it would get better, but it just kept getting more ridiculous. Margot is actually the worst. I don't understand what he sees in her. Like what could possibly be the foundation of their relationship? Also, the line that said something to the effect of "She was aroused by his frustration with her." ???????

The ending also felt very rushed. Narrator was great though. I guess I'll try the next one to see if it gets better?

Just okay

This story was ok. Not great but just okay. I was not a fan of the flashback and flash forward parts in the beginning. A little more excitement could have been added to that plot.

Predictable but still enjoyable

Any additional comments?

I think Julia London's earlier books were braver, more interesting, with characters that wern't so wishy washy

Good story

Rather confusing at first, but it turned out very intriguing. Love Julie books, she spins a good tale.
