Back of Book Description:

Handsome and dangerous, Patrick MacGregor is a wanted man, possessing the tough, tenacious spirit of his outlawed clan. he will stop at nothing to save his people from destruction, even if it means marrying Elizabeth Campbell, the daughter of his worst enemy. Yet the flaxen-haired beauty disarms him from the start. Her sweet, unspoiled softness touches the cold depths of his ravaged soul--and makes him want much more than revenge.

Inside the shy and dutiful Lizzie is a passionate woman longing to emerge, a woman ready for love. So when the piercing emerald eyes and searing kiss of a stranger spark in her despeerate hunger, she surrenders to Patrick's glorious seduction--unaware that his daring deception has just found its one and only chance for redemption: a love more powerful than hate

My Rating: A+

My Review:

This was an excellent love story, but it was also packed full of action! All the characters were quite amazing. Lizzie is such a strong and beautiful character, I think she may be my favorite McCarty heroine yet. She overcomes so much and is so driven by duty, but not to the point where you want to smack her for making the wrong choice.

Patrick's story is very heartbreaking, and gives him a strong drive than most hero's have. He's so full of hatred and regret, you find it just as hard as he does that he's falling in love.

The stage for this novel is set from the lowlands in a castle to the highlands in the wilderness. The author describes every single setting so well, you feel like you're actually there.

This is a wonderful book, and I can't wait to read the next one!
