Overview

From the Isle of Skye to the battlefields of France, Duncan MacDonald has never escaped the memory of the true love he left behind. Deemed unworthy of a chieftain's daughter, Duncan abandoned the lovely Moira to prove his worth in battle. Now, when called upon to rescue her from a rival clan, one thing is certain: Moira's pull on his heart is stronger than ever.

Bartered away in marriage to a violent man, Moira will do anything to ensure she and her son survive. When a rugged warrior arrives to save her, the desperate beauty thinks her prayers have been answered-until she realizes it's Duncan. The man who once broke her heart is now her only hope. Moira vows never again to give herself-or reveal her secrets-to the fierce warrior, but as they race across the sea, danger and desire draw them ever closer.

Meet the Author

Margaret Mallory abandoned a career as a lawyer to become a romance novelist. Why this surprised everyone, she doesn't know. Who wouldn't rather have thrilling adventures with handsome Highlanders than write briefs and memos? Margaret lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, a goofy dog, and a crabby cat. With her children off to college, she spends most of her time working on her next book in The Return of the Highlanders series. Margaret loves to hear from readers.

This is even better than the previous 2 books of the series, the sinner and the guardian which i absolutely love. The author is picking up the pace as the whole series gets to a close. Now i cant wait for the last book, the chieftain.

I love the series, so far. The first is my favorite, though.

This is a great series, This is the third book in the series. I would recommend reading the series in order. Lots of sexual tension and laughs.

Wow. I was drawn to the emotions of this story from the opening line. No, that's not quite right. Spellbound might be a better choice of word. I couldn't let go of this story or its characters. Ms. Mallory really knows how to show the strong emotion between her characters. And it's not just Duncan and Moira (although what a bond those two have). It's the secondary characters, too. Niall, Ilysa, Ragnall, Sar - I want to hear even more about them and the others. With each story in this series, I get more and more amazed at the depth of the world the author has created. It's rich with history and conflict. I believe there's one more story after this...The Chieftain. I hope there will be more beyond. I'm not ready to be done with the MacDonald clan or the Isle of Skye yet.

After reading a book in this series I can't wait for the next one...and wonder why there are not men like these in our world today. Guess the whole sword waving wouldn't be a good idea...but,you ladies know what I mean.
