Library JournalMargaret Chattan travels to Scotland in the hope of overturning a curse that has plagued her family for generations. According to lore, the male Chattans will die if they fall in love. Margaret is the first daughter born during this time, and her brothers, Harry and Neal, are both recently wed (Lyon’s Bride; The Devil’s Witch). But on the journey, Margaret’s carriage and all her outriders are blown off a Scottish mountainside. Margaret and Harry’s valet Rowan are the sole survivors, though she appears completely unharmed. Heath Macnachtan, the new laird of the clan following his brother’s murder a year earlier, has enough problems with debt, rambunctious crofters, and two high-spirited sisters to bother with curses and mysterious white cats. Yet the earnest Margaret intrigues him. When she declares they are betrothed following a night spent together while searching for a way to break the curse, Heath is fairly eager to go along.
Verdict The younger son who now must shoulder his clan’s responsibilities and the reserved yet intrepid Englishwoman who harbors a devastating secret find a love stronger than any superstition. A lovely conclusion to Maxwell’s trilogy; for all romance collections.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
