Overview

The Murrays are back in this thrilling new tale from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell . . .
 
Responsible for protecting her younger siblings from their abusive father, Bethoc Matheson is in no position to rescue another soul in Scotland. Yet when she sees a bleeding man on the verge of drowning, that’s exactly what she does, securing him safely in a cave where she can return day after day to tend to his wounds.
 
Sir Callum MacMillan can scarcely believe such a slight lass as Bethoc could save him from the grasp of death. But he knows the telltale marks of an angry fist on her skin, and he knows she has the soul of a fighter within her feminine frame. Raised to be a protector of the weak by his Murray clansmen, Callum would prefer to be the one saving her—and save her, he will. If he can first survive the treacherous attack that led him into her irresistible arms . . .

Another great addition to the Murrays series. Bethoc is out for a walk along the river, escaping her abusive father if even for a little while. She finds injured Sir Callum injured on the shore, binds his wounds and helps to hide him away while he heals. As the weeks pass they grow closer, once healed can Sir Callum rescue her and the children she cares for from her cruel step-father? This is a fast paced story with plenty of drama and suspense. Bethoc is very innocent and Callum can’t seem to resist her. I really liked it.

Callum is wounded and left for dead when Bethoc and her little sister find him and manage to hide home away in a cave while he heals. These two have many obstacles to overcome to find their happiness. This is the next book in the Murray series and can be read by itself but it is much better read in order to immersion into the Scottish life and flavor of those times. Always enjoy the characters and family connections with this author along with the humor intertwined in the story. Looking forward to see who is going to have his tale told next. Ebook from netgalley and publishers with thanks.

Coming into a long running series can leave a reader lost sometimes but definitely not this time. I did not need to know anybody else in the series to fully understand and enjoy this book. I take my hat off to an author that can keep the impetus of a series running so long without losing fans for the series. Having never read this author before I do have to say I will look forward to reading more books by her in the future. Callum has been severely beaten and left for dead when Bethoc finds him half in and half out of the water. She gets him to safety then cares for him surreptitiously while also managing to take care of those in her care. The man that has acted in the place of her father is an abusive, alcoholic, selfish, unreasonable man – man she fears. Both Callum and Bethoc have had difficult childhoods but find solace in the company of one another as he heals. When Bethoc is accused of murdering her step-father and put into prison her life becomes even worse. Callum and his friends come to her aid, uncover a nefarious plot and put the perpetrators into the hands of the law. There are additional side plots that are equally interesting and well-constructed with supporting characters in abundance and no doubt people who have played parts in previous books. BUT the heart of this story is love whether it is healing, nurturing, caring, familial, or some other type. Recognizing and acknowledging love while offering it freely can make all the difference in life. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Note: Bethoc was such an unusual name I had to look it up and found that there is a historical figure of that name…and I even found a site that told me how to pronounce it two different ways. 4.5 Stars
