I only got to page 25......... Thought this was to be a series......way to many people introduced at one that were not in the first book......A lot of confusion......to many different people thrown at you all at once to get to know ... way to much..did not follow the first book that l really enjoyed.. gave up. Will try THE HEATHER MOON. Keeping my fingers crossed

Thank you to eBook Discovery for the free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Not having read book one of the series and never having read any of Susan King’s book I was hoping for an interesting historical romance set in Scotland – and – that is just what I found in this novel. Mairie Macrae’s brother Iain was captured, accused of treason and is being held in jail. Mairie is determined to keep Iain from the hangman’s noose and is willing to break the law to do so. With reivers, thieves and others out to thwart her her task is not simple. When she waylays Rowan Scott, newly dubbed deputy to the warden holding her brother, she realizes she might be in over her head. She does her best to get Rowan on her side but he is dealing with his own issues so does not make it easy. Rowan and Mairie are drawn to one another but with spies to find, brothers to save, Spanish gold gone missing, a child to bring home and a magic mirror to deal with they are definitely kept busy. This book reminds me of other historical romances set in this time period and location. Both Mairie and Rowan are strong characters who will do what needs to be done. I enjoyed the story and felt the conclusion was well handled. I do have to say that this book is more fantasy than fact based reality but it was an enjoyable way to spend the day.

I found this to be a well told tale. I enjoyed reading about the next generation of a major family from the first book. The characters and events engaged me from beginning to end. I look forward to reading the third book. RM

I didn't understand this book 2 in the series, when in book 1 Mairi McCrae was married to a man named Alistair during the time her brother was in prison.
