In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1565, superstition and treachery threaten a truce between rival clans. It's a weak truce at first, bound only by an arranged engagement between Anne MacGregor and Niall Campbell-the heirs of the feuding families. While Niall wrestles with his suspicions about a traitor in his clan, Anne's actions do not go unnoticed. And as accusations of witchcraft abound, the strong and sometimes callous Campbell heir must fight for Anne's safety among disconcerted clan members. Meanwhile his own safety in threatened with the ever-present threat of someone who wants him dead. Will Niall discover the traitor's identity in time? Can Anne find a way to fit into her new surroundings? Will the two learn to love each other despite the conflict?… (més)

An enjoyable enough read. Once I got past the use of Och and Mayhap and automatically replacing them with the present day equivalent it was bot bad. I love this period of time, so there isn't much you can do to ruin a book, unless you write like a thesaurus threw up!!! Lol! ( )

My favorite part about this novel was the Scottish brogue. I felt thoroughly immersed in the story. I read this whole series once ten years ago and actually started dreaming in Scottish. The novel is actually 4.5 stars. The ending started to lag, when you really wanted the characters to figure out who the villain was. And Niall and Anne were both a bit thick headed and distrustful, but I loved the banter between them.

Reader Rated 15 for mild sensuality and moderate violence. ( )

Set in 1563, this is an interesting story about Scottish clan history; a bit drawn out in parts, but good characters and a satisfying love story. ( )

DESCRIPTION, NOT REVIEW: n the harsh Scottish highlands of 1564, superstitions threaten a truce . . . a traitor plans his attack . . . and a new love is born.

An arranged betrothal was never the course Anne MacGregor imagined her life would take. Yet when her father explains that her cooperation is the only way to bring about the long-sought truce between feuding families, Anne has no other choice.

A simple ceremony pledging Anne's hand in marriage after one year of commitment is the only seal to the promise of peace. But when the arrangement requires the reluctant Anne to follow Niall Campbell back to his home, she soon discovers that peace is not so easily achieved. Before they even arrive, rumors about her abound, and her safety is threatened. Meanwhile, Niall's ascension as leader of his clan is in jeopardy, as a traitor works to bring about his downfall.

As Niall and Anne begin to see beyond each other's defenses, love takes them by surprise. But will it be enough to defeat their foes? Or will the truce be broken, their lives forfeit, and war return to their beloved land? ( )

First read for this author. I love brawny Highlanders and strong-willed heroines, but I struggled to get through this book. It started out great and hooked me right away even though it was clearly another rival clan plot, but the bigger focus is on Niall learning the identity of the clan traitor. By the middle of the book, I just wanted it to be over.

I can see what the author was going for and the plot had great promise, but the overstated/melodramatic writing became difficult to sift through. I hesitate to write this because I didn't hate the book, but I didn't love it either. There were several incidents where I felt Niall's reactions were over-the-top, especially for a powerful tanist who's entire life was dedicated to leading his clan.

Like this: I can't believe he'd go on a drunken binge because he suspected Anne of going against his directive by treating a young boy's burnt hand. An adult would confront her. He had much bigger problems to drink over.

I guess what I'm trying to describe are "sharp" or "unrealistic" emotional turns and reactions (from every character at some point). The feelings didn't match the moment and left me very confused. For example I'd be reading along and the couple would share a fairly civil moment. I'd think to myself, Does he like her now? I can't really tell. *turns the page* Whoops, she bruised his fragile ego again with a curt comment or look and paranoia sets in. He can't stand her.

Anyway, the bickering between Anne and Niall lacked chemistry and I never "felt" the love between them. The emotional romance was nearly non-existent in this book. I also didn't see much persecution against Anne for being a MacGregor. It's mentioned, but not experienced or shown to us. Granted, she gets into all sorts of trouble over being called a witch.

Many of my questions went unanswered when it came to the overall plot. Does he really find the traitor? What really happened to the first wife and babies? Was there foul play? If so how? When did the big moment happen where the couple came together? For awhile I wondered if Iain was supposed to become Anne's true love. That would've been a great twist!

I may revisit the author at a later date as there is potential here. ( )
