When a Scot Gives His Heart by Julie Johnstone

Date Read: May 2, 2018

Genre: Historical, Romance

Love touched them. Treachery divided them. One night of passion binds them.

Betrayed by her father, Marsaili Campbell risks her life to recover what he has stolen from her. But when she’s kidnapped and wagered away, she has no one to help her escape other than the very man she’s spent the past three years trying to forget—Highland warrior Callum Grant. She once gave her heart and her innocence to the handsome Scot, only to regret her naive decisions. Still, with more enemies than she can battle alone, she needs an ally, even if she must hide the truth of her circumstances from him.

Laird Callum Grant thrust his clan into war for the love of a woman, only to lose her forever. But when the woman he believed dead appears at his clan’s tourney in dire trouble, there’s no denying Marsaili has been alive all this time. With his clan weakened from the years of raids and battles, however, he cannot afford to do anything that would ruin the betrothal he’s made to secure his clan’s future. Yet he can’t turn away from the woman who once beguiled him body and soul.

As Callum and Marsaili embark on a dangerous journey, each touch, each look, each clash of wills reignites their desire in an all-consuming inferno. But the secret Marsaili keeps and the duty that shackles Callum are threatening to destroy them. That is, unless they can learn that love, once truly given, is unbreakable.

Marsaili Campbell’s father is gathering his friends and others to take the Scottish throne from King David and give it to Robert Stewart, David’s greedy nephew. He plans to have his son “accidentally” wound the married Earl of Ulster and Marsaili will treat his wound and he will want her. She tries to talk him out of this with no luck.
Callum Grant stopped at the Gordon’s on the way to the Campbell gathering. He discovers his intended wife naked in the stable hand’s arms and calls off their wedding. During the hunt at the gathering he meets Marsaili. He is attracted to her and knows she is meant for him. They meet outside the castle and, at her wish, they make love. He goes to his home to tell his parents he plans to marry her but never returns.
I do not want to spoil the rest of this wonderful love story. Marsaili and Callum go through so many up and downs in their lives before they meet again. But when they do, their love for each other is still true. There are also wonderful secondary characters that add so much to this story. I have read and loved all the books in this series and can highly recommend them, especially this book. It is a keeper.
