The Devil's Heart was a fun quick read, but it did leave something a little lacking. I couldn't seem to connect to the main characters very well. Lady Margaret Chattan has earned the name Unattainable by snubbing her nose at all potential suitors. But she often complains about how alone she is. While I very much look up to her for decision to hunt down the sourse of the curse on her family, I wondered throughout the whole story why it took the family so long to try and fix it?Was this review helpful?

Heath Macnachtan is a somewhat typcial Scottish Laird. He cares for his family, his people, his land, and the rest can be damned. Until he meets Margaret. One of my absolute favorite scenes (and recurring joke throughout the story) was the scene where the met outside his house and "argued" for the first time. It was very memorable and unique and I wish the rest of the story had kept that feeling.
As a lover of paranormal, I would have liked to see a little more of the witch and the curse manifested along the way. At times I was almost able to forget that it was "real" as it disappeared from the forefront of the storyline. This was a very well-written and thought out story - I think I was just expecting something a little different and something a little more paranormal.

Magic and Breaking a Curse were the themes in book 1, Lyon's Bride and book 2, The Scottish Witch.
BACKSTORY: owing to a jilted Rose Macnachtan by Charles Chattan, heaven’s knows how many generations ago, Rose’s mother Fenella cursed the Chattans forever: viz., once they fall in love they are doomed to die. And so over time the Macnachtan clan hated the Chattans and vice versa. In this book 3, The Devil's Heart, both of Lady Margaret Chattan’s brothers are lying near death, and she is their last hope for breaking the spell. After all, the curse was put on the Chattan men and said nothing about Chattan females. Lady Margaret sets off in two carriages with a maid and men servants, plus a peculiarly-eared white cat that no one but she sees. As they approach Macnachtan land, a wild – it’s got to be magic – storm destroys carriages, horses, men, maid; the sole survivors are the badly hurt Margaret and her Indian footman Rowan. Laird Heath Macnachtan, last of the clan, while visiting the site of his brother’s murder, comes upon the wreckage, the hurt servant, and a not-at-all-hurt (magic?) Margaret. He brings them both to his home to be tended to. This time around the clan hatred has abated: Heath’s two sisters are helpful to Margaret, and it appears so is Dara, the widow of the slain brother. Fenella’s magic is strong, but the two lovers (yes, Heath and Margaret) finally break the curse with the help of the mysterious white cat (an incarnation of Rose?). And Heath finds out who murdered his brother. The story read well, and so I enjoyed it on the long Memorial Day weekend 2013.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
