Publication Date: May 15, 2017
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Scandalous, Historical Romance



Cullen Duffie, a Highland warrior and charming rogue, is the new chief of Clan MacDonald. Determined to prove he’s not his father, Cullen works to secure his clan against the English. When a woman washes onto Islay’s shores, Cullen protects her from his uncles’ schemes.

Waking up not knowing who she is or where she comes from, Rose is at the mercy of the man who found her. Unable to speak from the swelling around her throat from a rope tether, she learns as much as she can about the new world around her and the powerful, sword-wielding Highlander who has sworn to protect her.

Through dreams and flashes of her past, Rose begins to rebuild her memories. But the more she recalls about the horror she escaped, the more she realizes the jeopardy she is bringing to Islay, Clan MacDonald and the Highlander who has captured her heart.


Cullen Duffie's life changes when his grandfather names him chief of clan MacDonald. He can no longer stick to his roguish ways. Now his clan will always take priority. He must be cautious in his actions, his two troublesome uncles are there to remind him this fact every day. He understands his responsibilities but sometimes listening to your heart is more important...
Rose, that's what Cullen called her when he found her washed up along the shore of Islay Isle. She was badly injured and unable to speak. Now, even though she has healed she still can't remember who she is or where she comes from. But one thing is quite obvious from her speech, she is French. Her presence can cause serious trouble for Cullen's clan and yet he refuses to leave her without protection. She might turn out to be a murderer, thief, or even a spy but for some reason Cullen refuses to acknowledge that. Rose needs his help so that's what he will do, help her.
It's an interesting story, which starts with intrigue and mystery, and continues to surprise until the very end. I loved all the characters, it's well-written, and very entertaining read. I'd recommend this book to all historical fiction fans.
