Overview

In the first of a breathtaking trilogy set against the stark beauty of medieval Scotland, one man discovers a surprising past, a remarkable gift--and a terrible destiny. . .

Once, Connor believed that his ability to see the future would grant him everything. Instead, it landed him in a prison of his own making. Summoned by the Lord of the Isles to serve as his counselor, Connor gains wealth and prestige, but with every vision, his own sight dims. Even so, Connor doesn't grasp the terrible consequences of his gift until he's wounded by a young woman who blames him for her family's massacre.

Moira curses herself for failing to kill the Seer--especially when she learns her punishment is to be given to him as a slave. Far from the proud, arrogant tyrant she imagined, Connor is a tortured man with a dark sensuality that tempts her night after night. But freeing him from a strange power that is spiraling out of control will mean forsaking her vow and risking her heart for the one man she has sworn to destroy. . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Vowing retribution on the seer whom she considers responsible for her family's slaughter, Moira finally finds her quarry in Connor, counselor to Diarmid, Lord of the Isles. But when her plan fails and she is captured, Moira discovers a mesmerizing man tormented by his visionary gift and his unknown past—and she is torn between vengeance and love. Jealousy and political intrigue inspire much of the action in this faery-tinged, explicitly sexy story, the first in a trilogy featuring similarly gifted brothers and set amid the wild splendor of medieval Scotland. VERDICT Violent, brutal, and hotly passionate, this compelling, magical romance combines ancient myth with medieval reality and beautifully sets the stage for the books to come. Brisbin (The Conqueror's Lady), who lives in southern New Jersey, is a seasoned historical writer; this is her first Brava title.

    I was very disappointed with this book and I will not bother to

    I was very disappointed with this book and I will not bother to read the next two in the trilogy. It should have a warning for explicit content because of the lewd vocabulary.

    This is a super paranormal romance

    The seer sent killers to murder her and her family. The only survivor of the massacre, Moira swore vengeance and six years later her quest takes her to the camp of the Lord of the Isles Diarmid. His Counselor guiding the lord, Connor has visions that disturb him as he sees himself jailed in a luxurious prison yet also spending nights with an unknown beautiful female.

    Moira plans to sleep with the seer before killing him. However, the night proves incredible and she fumbles her attempt to kill the seer. Instead only wounded Connor enslaves Moira. Over time she learns the secret price her captor pays for visions and begins to feel for Connor, but is it enough to overcome her loathing in order to forgive him and help him.

    This is a super paranormal romance that grips the audience the moment Connor sees the beautiful Moira for the first time and makes a bad assumption that his liege sent her. The story line is fast-paced as she uses him but fails to kill him so she becomes his prisoner instead. As their relationship changes the key remains constant throughout the exhilarating story line: readers and the hero wonder whether Moira can leave her hatred behind for her love of him.
