Overview

Released from the captivity of the Fae, Murdoch Seton wants nothing more than to forget his lost years. Undertaking a quest to recover treasure stolen from his family seems the perfect solution - but Murdoch is not counting upon a curious maiden who holds both the secret to the theft and his sole redemption.

Isabella is outraged to find her brother's keep besieged by a renegade knight - especially one who is too handsome for his own good or hers. After a single encounter, she becomes convinced that his cause is just and decides to unveil the true thief, never imagining that their single shared kiss has launched a battle for Murdoch's very soul.

As the treacherous Fae move to claim Murdoch forever, Isabella seeks to heal the knight who has stolen her heart. But will Murdoch allow her to take a risk and endanger herself? Or will he sacrifice himself to ensure Isabella's future?

    Can't wait until the next one,Luv,Luv,Luv!!!

    This is the continuation of a family's story, though The Renegades Heart can stand on it's own, you really need to start at the beginning, if you don't you do yourself a disservice! Claire Delacroix makes you fall in love with each character and writes a way that makes you feel that you are standing in the shadows watching everything take place. You need to to start at the beginning with the "The Rogues of Ravensmuir",(The Rogue)(The Scoundrel)(The Warrior),then you need to continue with "The Jewels of Kinfairlee" (The Beauty Bride)(The Rose Red Bride)(The Snow White Bride)and(The Ballad of Rosamunde). Each of these books run at least 600+ pages(on the nook),but yet they do not seem long enough, they leave you wanting more. The Ballad of Rosamunde is a short novella but a great read. I will keep myself busy with other books of Claires' while waiting until Dec. to get here for the second book in this series! I know that this was suppose to be a review on this book, however I would feel awful if someone did not know that there are seven five star books ahead of it!!! I was told and I'm so happy they did!

    Claire Delacroix aka Deborah Cooke has been entertaining readers

    Claire Delacroix aka Deborah Cooke has been entertaining readers for
    many years with her bold heroines and lusty heroes from medieval times,
    and just when you thought the only way to experience the era with her
    was through her previous series she comes out with a brand new companion
    series staring the characters we’ve loved from Kinfairlie and Ravensmuir
    and the previously released and just recently re-released Jewels of
    Kinfairlie series. This first installment stars Isabella Lammergeier
    sister to Alexander (The Snow White Bride) and Murdoch Seton. These
    characters will endear you to them within the first few pages, Murdoch
    with his arrogant yet honorable air and Isabella with her curiosity. Now
    if you don’t read historical novels everyday it may take you a page or
    two to get into the dialogue swing of things but once you do you’ll find
    a richly flowing narrative that will bring the action right to you. The
    plot involves a lot more fantasy then the last one’s did so you’ll see a
    fair amount of fairies flying about and raising havoc. The romance is
    sweet, it’s sensuous and it’s just a little racy too and I love how
    Claire describes it to us in her typical perfect time period fashion.
    Bring on round three and thank you so much Claire for giving your fans
    what we so appreciate. It’s a bitter homecoming for Murdoch Seton, after
    3yrs held captive in the fairy realm he returns to find his father has
    died, his brother is laird and the coffers at the keep are empty. The
    relic that cost so much of the treasury has disappeared and with it the
    wealth and health of the estate. Murdoch is sent on a quest to find the
    treasure and to punish the villain who stole it. His crusade takes him
    to Kinfairlie where he’s met with falsehoods and deceits by it’s Laird
    and a fair maiden who intrigues him. It’s also become clear to Murdoch
    that the Elphine Queen who tricked him isn’t done with him by far, in
    fact she’s got permanent designs on him. Isabella is shocked by her
    reaction to the renegade Murdoch, his mere touch causes shivers that are
    not from the cold, his heart seems true and his undertaking noble, but
    can he be trusted with her heart, and her innocence, and will she
    discover the secret to saving him from the fae Queen before he’s lost to
    her forever. Together they search for the lost relic and what they find
    will change them, the question is will they survive the fae, and her kin.
