Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands' captivating romance, a lass targeted by an unknown foe is saved - and seduced - by a bold Highlander

Edith Drummond owes her life to Niels Buchanan and his brothers. Waking after an illness to a castle overrun by rugged Highlanders is disconcerting, but so is learning that she's slowly being poisoned. Niels insists on staying by her side, and Edith soon discovers that even more dangerous is her wild attraction to the fierce warrior.

Niels has never met a more courageous - or enticing - woman than Lady Edith. The idea of such a bonny lass being forced to enter a nunnery is more than any red-blooded Scotsman could bear. He'll gladly marry her himself. But while sweeping her off her feet is easy, it'll take all his skill to defeat her family's relentless enemies and convince her to surrender to his sweet embrace....

Average story...

While I usually love a Lynsay Sands Highlands story, this one just didn’t connect with me. I felt like the story dragged on and on. I couldn’t really get a feel for the personalities of the main characters. Usually Ms. Sands imparts some warmth and emotion into her characters, but this book felt rather lifeless and stale. The narration was good though!

Expected so much more

I'm a Sands fan and I eagerly anticipated this book. I wanted to some thing a little more comical with a fantastic story line. This just wasn't it. Too many deaths for one book. I would not recommend it.

Another fabulous book

This was exciting and the end was unexpected. Throughout the story I kept thinking I knew who did what but boom surprise after surprise.

Suspenseful

I am one of those people that can figure out a mystery in the beginning of every story. This was truly a good suspenseful story until the end. I highly recommend this book.

Always a pleasure.

I thoroughly enjoy these characters and look forward to more tales of their loves and friendships. Also liked a male narrator for a change :)
