Received for Review (From Author)
This book is tied with “Heartbreak and Honor” as my favorite of this wonderful series. It is also hard to review, as I want to entice you to read it without spoiling this wonderful story with its twists and surprises.
Lydia Farnsworth has lost her mother, brothers and is taking care of her ailing father, the Laird of Tornbury. She worries for her father’s health and also who will be their laird when he dies. She also has to worry about her Uncle Gordon, a sneaky, greedy man who wants Tornbury for himself. Receiving an invitation from Ewan McTavish to a party at Craiglocky Keep, her father insists she go and hopes she looks for a husband while there.
Alasdair and Gregor McTavish are out hunting for the house party when they come across Lydia’s overturned carriage. Alasdair secretly loves Lydia and is furious her uncle is doing nothing to help the women stuck in the carriage. Lydia is relieved when she sees Alasdair as she knows he’ll help them. She also wants him to return to Tornbury with her to become their war chief, at least temporarily.
Alasdair agrees to return home with her and train their men. That’s when the excitement and danger start and secrets are revealed. They do, eventually, get their HEA. Very good book. Thank you for the ARC Collette.
