Life was never easy for Shona MacAslan but she is so close to gaining her freedom and living life on her own with her twin sister. Shona has watched everything she loved be taken away and left her with horrible memories and an even worse future destined to be fulfilled by her enemies. Nothing will part her from her twin sister not even the new Laird of Ballencrieff, Conal MacEwan. Conal is making decisions that will alter everything about Shona’s life and she is going to fight him with every stubborn and spiteful bone in her body.
Without her consent Shona finds herself still living an indentured servant’s life living on Conal’s estate. Shona is never one to let opportunity pass her by she immediately starts a formulating a plan that will set her and her twin sister free. Conal left a flourishing medical career to take over these lands and make them something his son will be proud to inherit. There is obligation but also the need to forget the past and the life his late wife left him to recover from. Fortunately, Conal sees very quickly Shona’s intelligence and decides to tap her ideas with long-term suggestions with short-term gains to make the estate solvent again. Conal is also sees Shona’s beauty and loves the shape of her sensuous lips even when those awful words come out of them.
The biggest problem with plans is they always have the possibility of falling apart when someone else’s agenda over rides yours. Shona’s idea for love and freedom unravel as the front door opens to accusing statements and a situation that Conal will have to resolve to save his estate, reputation, and future for his son. There has to be another way around this but right now all Shona sees is the life she wanted drifting away and the past coming back to haunt her in ways she never expected.
Michelle Marcos has completely blown me away with the magnificence of this book. Every reason I read historical romance is provided between the pages of this story. There are fascinating characters, plots that overlay the subplots, and a romance that will make you weep with joy it is so beautiful.

Indentured in service since she was a child, Shona Slayter can hardly wait days until her twenty first birthday. She will be "free" to live her own life with her twin sister Willow. But unfortunately Shona plans will have to be derailed because of the new owner has taken over the family estate and her indenture too! Even though the new "laird" is Scottish, he was raised in London. Conall MacEwan is bossy, infurating, handsome lout Shona has ever met. Conall thinks Shona is bossy, undisciplined, stubborn and oh so beautiful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Boy do sparks fly when these two get together. I really love this story of how Shona's and Conall's past tragedies gave each a life to treasure. This is the second book series of Ms Marcos. The first one was "Secrets to Seducing a Scot".
