But his strong sense of honor would force him to return her to her father…and torment at the hands of her scorned betrothed.

Review


It's an interesting read. I loved the story and the characters. Set in Highlands, the story revolves around Maggie who runs away from home so that she can avoid a disastrous marriage. But on her way to the convent, to safety, she found trouble. Lachlan has a mission. He must protect a boy and expose a traitor. Trust is a luxury he cannot afford. So when Maggie turn up right after they had an encounter with his enemies he decides to keep her close. She might very well be a spy after all.

But that's not the real reason... Try as he might he simply can't ignore the attraction he feels to her. He will wait until he can trust her then he will make her his. Maggie on the other hand want nothing more than to get as far away from home as possible. And if she can tag along with Lachlan then so be it. This way she will be safe from any harm. Because she knows in her heart that he will never hurt her.

Unfortunately what she didn't expect is falling for him. Now she has a problem. If he ever finds out her true identity he will definitely send her home. Therefore, she must leave without anyone being the wiser... It will not be an easy thing to do though

Absolutely amazing! I loved this book and I think it's a real treat for historical romance lovers. ;)
