About the Author

Part of the fun in writing, Donna Fletcher admits, is doing the research. But it is with her characters that she has the most fun. She loves giving life to fresh characters and feels their excitement as they face the pleasures and pitfalls of falling in love.

Donna's own adventures have taken her to England, Ireland, and Scotland. She has walked the fields where battles were fought centuries ago, toured haunted castles, stood where beheadings were commonplace, explored the mystic mounds of long ago, and collected a plethora of memories and research that will live long in her heart and mind. She also loves exploring and photographing old abandoned homes, and she often takes long walks in the woods with camera in hand. She feels her life is rich and full, having three terrific sons, two fantastic daughters-in-law, an endless supply of friends, a loving dog, and a crazy, black, one-eyed cat named Bear.

In 1005 Scotland, the four MacAlpin brothers are trying to raise an army to return the rightful True King to the throne of Scotland. However, men of the usurper capture one of the siblings, Duncan. He is manacled to a tired disheveled woman. Duncan needs to escape and has no time for a female even one as courageous and beautiful as his fettered mate Mercy. They escape and he admires her spunk and soon they become lovers. As they fall in love, Duncan learns who he was bounded to with chains and now hearts, the illegitimate daughter of the ruler the MacAlpin clan wants to overthrow. The first MacAlpin Dark Ages Highlander romance is a terrific tale that starts off with a strong opening sequence of having the lead couple chained to one another trying to escape and never slows down from there. Duncan is a courageous warrior willing to risk his life for his cause, but he believes Mercy is even braver as she proves her guts while they struggle to survive. Historical romance readers will relish this delightful action-packed early eleventh century Scottish romance. Harriet Klausner

I enjoy Mrs. Fletcher books. This one was very romantic and did not dissappoint. This is the second book in the series about four warriors. The book was 246 pages on my nook but is really about three times that many pages. The story was well developed. The heroine and hero Duncan were both very brave. I the romance lovers will love this book.

I loved this story. I loved the prophecy that it was based upon how the story unfolded. What imagination! I liked the history as well, someone did their research. I'm looking forward to reading more from this series and finding out who the true king is. I really hope it's Duncan as I believe I've fallen a little bit in love with him :-)

This is such a great way to START a series. Because of this book you will want to run out and get the other ones asap. It introduces the plot in a very mythical way, and you want to keep reading to see out of these four men who it really is. (Although very subtle hints are laid out before- i did not catch them until my 3rd re-read.) Duncan and Mercy are great and I recommend everyone to read it.

Duncan MacAlpine, on his way back home to Scotland finds himself captured by the English. He is handcuffed to a brave English woman, Mercy. At the first opportunity Duncan and Mercy break away from their captors. They must travel over treacherous land riddled with English soldiers avoiding recapture while literally bound to each other by their wrists. Talk about teamwork. These two must learn to master the art of hiking, eating, bathing and sleeping as one unit. Sounds like a winning scenario for a great romance, right? Not so much. After the first chapter I knew this book wasn't for me. I am one of those optimistic readers who hope that the book is going to get better. While it did get better, it still wasn't a stellar read. My main problem with the book was the writing style. It was overly simplified and too explanative. I didn't need to be given an explanation for every little action made by either Mercy or Duncan. Readers aren't idiots. We don't need every little nuance spelled out. Give us good action and we can intuit what is going on between the characters for ourselves. Also, the characters especially Mercy seemed a little too "fairy tale" perfect. Their personalities were not realistic enough for my taste. It is difficult for me to recommend this book.

Interesting premise which turned into a trite book. Mercy and Duncan are prisoners of the king who are chained together and who escape together. As they journey to Duncan's home they fall in love. That's essentially the story for 300 pages. There isn't a lot of character development nor a lot of reflection on their relationship. The book is all about the plot and introducing the series (I'm assuming its going to be a series of four books given the setup). The interaction, setting and dialogue also seemed much later, chronologically, than the book actually was which was a distraction for me. Not much depth to the book so not much else to add.

Love historicals by my few favorite authors. However, what i truly dislike is the heroine ALWAYS thinking " i luv him but i must leave to keep him safe", or " l cant stay here because it might get his family killed"! Come on....where could mercy go that would be safer than where she is? Ok Donna...have to give it a three because of Mercys continous thoughts about her mother and her grandmother. They got monotonous.

Conjugation! It's called verb conjugation. Not half a page goes by without stunners like this: "Some day," he said breathless. Too many to count. Too many to make worth reading. Run away.

She must be going thru a ROMANCE stage. NOT my cup of tea. I like historical fiction but NOT historical "romance"

This is my first Donna Fletcher book. I thought that it was just ok. I would have liked to have had a bit more story development. I would definitely say that this book is only for the strictly romance genre fans. Since I am a sucker for a series, I will probably read the next book.
