Overview

Moira Maclean is summoned by Mother Abbess in the dead of night. Frightened and worried and with no time to dress, she rushes in her night dress and bare feet to discover disturbing news. Her father and brothers have been killed by a rival clan and it is her father’s dying wish that she wed the warrior he sent to keep her safe.

The stranger appears to have come directly from the battlefield and Moira has little choice but to obey her father’s dying wish. A hasty ceremony and equally hasty consummation, and it’s over, though Moira soon finds that… it has only just begun.

Her father arrives and she learns that the warrior she wed, Ian of the clan Cameron, is her father’s mortal enemy. A bargain is struck between the two men and she is once again left at the convent to live out her days.

But danger lurks in the shadows and Moira carries a secret she’s been warned not to share and with her life in peril Ian returns to take his wife home. It doesn’t take long for Ian to realize that Moira has the power to heal his broken heart and that he has the power to wake her dormant passion and love has the power to bring the unlikely pair together.

    THE BEST I'VE READ!

    WOW! This has to be the best romance I've ever read! I would recomend this book to ALL! This book kept up the suspense from beginning to end. And the passion and love that grew between the main characters leaves you just breathless and longing for more. I didn't want this book to ever end! I couldn't put this book down and ended up reading it twice in 2 days, it was that good.

    exciting Scottish historical romance

    In 1513 the death of King James IV has led to chaos and clan skirmishes throughout Scotland. Ian Cameron of Glencoe arrives at a convent claiming to have been sent by the father of resident Moira Maclean. Ian informs the Mother Superior and Moira that her father lies near death and wants her to marry him immediately. Stunned, she reluctantly agrees and they wed and consummate their vows. Not long afterward, her father arrives only for Moira to learn that she married the leader of her clan¿s greatest enemy. <P>Ian feels this marriage will insure the peace, yet he deserts his bride. Moira wants to forget how she has become a pawn of clan politics and return to her serene life. However, she now carries Ian¿s heir. Ian comes back for his wife not only because he fears an assassin seeking trouble between the clans will kill her, but also because he realizes he loves his gentle spouse. Now he must find a way to gain her trust first. <P> Once Scottish historical romance fans leap past that Machiavellian-like Ian is in love based on one quick night, they will enjoy this well-written tale. The story line is filled with action and counteraction as the clans¿ leaders and the assassin battle for supremacy between each other. The lead couple is a delightful duo and the secondary characters provide strength to the plot. Readers will enjoy Donna Fletcher¿s latest historical ISLE OF LIES once the plot shifts into gear. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Good! Good! Goody!

    Married to unite the clan, how romantic! Now she must journey to her new home with her new husband. She is quite knowledgeable in healing, plants, numbers, and such - things a woman should not be interested in. He proudly defends his clan and has much to deal with as laird. The newlyweds struggle to co-exist. Very well written, great characters, romance & longing, and an intriguing plot.

    Verbose much?

    I'm on page five hundred something and very little has happened so far. The author has established (over and over) that the heroine is a stubborn intellectual. If I were the hero here, I'd want nothing more than to smack her. I'm not one to give up on a book, but I won't be finishing this one.

    Excellent

    I love this story. Nice for a change to read about an independent woman and the acceptance of her by our hero instead of him being intimadated by her and trying to change her. The story flows over 1600 pages. Good read. Highly recommend

    Couldn't force myself to finish it.

    I have been trying to force myself to finish. I cannot stand Moira, and if I have to read how intelligent she is one more time while another ridiculous question pops out of her mouth. She is basically book smart, people stupid. If it were done differently I would have been excited that she was educated, but with her I felt she was rude and self important always self centered wanting her way like a spoiled child. She seemed to believe she knows it all, and will dominate everyone. She is sneaky and feels she is always right, I could go with it for a while with the excuse she was sent away as a young girl. Eventually I just grew irritated and stopped caring about what happened.

    Wonderful read

    What a wonderful read it was. I enjoyed the strength of the woman in the story. They well matched the men and often put them in their places.

    Long book. I read it in a few days. It was okay.

    Really long. Kinda hard for me too get into it. Was a filler for times I had nothing else to do. Wasn't drawn into the story. Not the worst book but okay for the price I paid.

    A great romance

    So maybe not the typical romance, but great none the less. I loved his devotion to his wife. One of my favorites from Fletcher.

    Loved, loved, loved it!

    I really enjoyed this novel. It was a quick, enjoyable read. I love reading romance novels on my Nook b/c I can read them at work with no on the wiser on what I'm reading. :) I love the fact that education of women was stressed within the book--grrl power! :)

    Good read

    I found the characters endearing although a bit dense at times, but overall I loved the story. I have read many of Donna Fletcher's books and so far I love them all.

    Great Read!!!

    I came across this book & that's all it took to hook me. I have fallen in love with Donna Fletchers books. Great Story, Plot & Characters. Picturing the story in your mind is so effortless. As soon as I read the last page of this book I went right back to purchased the next book "Love Me Forever". This book will be a great one for you to try. When you are done with these try the 4 books about the Sinclair Brothers. That series starts with "Return of the Rogue". She definitely will not disappoint you.

    Good

    This was a good read. Very lengthy. I did at times find myself getting bored with Moira. Intelligence, knowledge, blah blah blah. She irritated me at times. But still, it was a good read despite that, and I would read other works from this author. I have in fact, and the others also seem to be inexpensive and lengthy with good story lines.

    Ian is by far the most romantic character that I've cared about

    Ian is by far the most romantic character that I've cared about in a long time. Moira was annoying at times and simply overthought and agonized more than I could take but came through in the end. Secondary characters Blair and Anne ? He was great, she an annoying twit. A bit long but well worth the time investment.

    Unlikable Heroine............................................

    Moira was so smart she knew everything. I mean everything about everything. How to start a fire, plant a crop, season food, run the accounting ledgers, make a better arrow etc. etc. Still at 29 years old when a stranger shows up at the convent and says your dad--a man who hasn't dropped by or sent a postcard in17 years---wants us to get married tonight and have sex within the hour she marries him. Really? Well except for that little lapse she was brilliant. We know this because the book repeated it continually. The book pages number over 1600 but its not a true count. Probably more like around 800 or so. Still too long.
