Overview

Ciara, Immortal Fury, spends her days locating evil and administering justice. When her goddess mothers inform her they need a gifted child, Ciara agrees to their plan. She will swap places with Faolan MacKay's shy bride long enough to conceive, bear, and train a child in the old ways, before resuming her duties as avenger of wickedness.

Laird Faolan MacKay's advisers are pushing him to wed. Faolan has lost everyone he's ever loved and would rather travel to hell than down the aisle. To silence his advisers, Faolan chooses a woman rumored to be meek and easy to ignore. One problem: nobody ignores Ciara.

Against his will, he's enthralled with his new wife--to Ciara's surprise, the mortal affliction called love burns hotter than her hunger for vengeance. But when their time is up and Ciara must leave, can the bond of love overcome the edict of the ultimate powers?

Fallen Angel Reviews - Dee Reviewer
This was a beautiful, heartbreaking love story that I couldn't put down. I wanted to see if love really could overcome all odds. I loved reading a story where a man was willing to give it all up to be with the one woman that was made especially for him.

    Great Book

    I loved the characters. The way she used the magic in this story was wonderful and new. I hope she makes a sequal. Would like to see what happens to the McKays.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I will admit, I have a soft spot for a romance set in the beautiful country of Scotland. There is just something about a Highlander that gets me. This book was no different.

    Faolan is a Highlander who is determined to not marry. Turning down countless proposals, he comes up with a plan to marry a woman who would place no stake on his heart. That is, until he meets Ciara, who is determined only do her duty. They are pulled towards one another and both realize that love is just what they needed.  This story is full of all the good things – romance, steamy love scenes, humor, a dreamy hero and a strong, feisty heroine and a beautiful setting.

    Faolan is a character you fall in love with immediately. He’s been hurt and you realize that has played a huge part in how he lives his life and the choices he makes. He is relatable…after all, we have all been in a space similar at some point in our lives. It does help that he is unbelievably gorgeous and you just want to make all of his hurt go away.

    Ciara, on the other hand, isn’t immediately likable. She is strong and tough. As an immortal who has a job to perform, she does it well and keeps emotion out of it. When she is asked to marry Faolan, she does so, determined to keep her heart and emotion out of it. That is, until she seems him and feels the pull there is between them. In the end, she becomes a character you root for.
    Not only are the two main characters interesting, you have secondary characters who keep the story moving along, who provide support and humor.

    Bottom line – this is a great book! I loved it and I look forward to reading more from Maeve Greyson.
