Overview

Duncan MacElgin, of the devil's own reputation and sinful past, has been forced to return home to his crumbling Scottish castle — only to be ambushed by a woman! Worse, the tartan-clad female is impertinent, unrepentant, and beautiful.

Convinced Duncan is the enemy, Marsali Hay orders her bedraggled clansmen to attack the powerful chieftain. She never dreams he is the infamous "Black Duncan," returning to bring his embarrassing clan of rebels under control. Determined to assert his authority, Duncan vows that Marsali will pay dearly for her mistake. But when she confronts menacing danger, Duncan realizes that in order to regain control of his castle, he might have to fight the battle of his life...and surrender his hardened warrior's heart.

This book had me laughing outloud many times! The main characters are Duncan and Marsali. The supporting characters are a bunch of well meaning, good hearted, but not so bright folks. The trouble they get into with Marsali...I enjoyed this book and I'm a picky reader.

I'm a great fan of Jillian Hunter, but this is not a very good book. It's so bad in fact, that I could barely slog through it. There is no reason to like or even care about the two main characters. Marsali's behavior is irrational and irritating (going fishing in a gold tulle ball gown??). Duncan is not much better (a successful general sitting on the floor playing with and talking to tin soldiers??). An attempt seemed to be made to make the secondary characters cutesy and oddball, but they were simply paper-doll flat. The plot dragged along at a snail's pace with jarringly abrupt leaps forward by weeks with little or no exposition to bring the reader along. All-in-all a singularly bad book. I usually donate my paperbacks to the local library, however this one went straight to the trash can. No one should be subjected to this level of tripe. As a matter of fact, this book is so bad that I can hardly believe it was written by Jillian Hunter. In spite of this unfortunate tome, I highly recommend her more recent books.

I am addicted to reading romance novels, and of all of them this had to be the most interesting, book I have ever read. It was funny, loving, magical, it was everything I enjoy in my books. I commend the writer.
