Ten years before, Malcolm made a tragic mistake, and, to preserve the family name-and his own skin-he allowed Kenneth to take the fall. Now that he is dying without an heir, Malcolm plans to atone for his mistake: by giving Kenneth his life back. All Kenneth has to do is assume his brother's identity. But complicating matters is the unexpected return of Lady Isobel Mackay, the daughter of an English marquess and the wife Malcolm didn't want.
Isobel barely knows the husband who abandoned her even before their marriage, and she'd long since given up on having a real marriage with him. Yet when she returns to the Mackay holding far earlier than expected, she finds her husband a changed man. Despite the hurt between them, Isobel's heart responds to this man who cares for his entire clan as if they were family. Who, for the first time, cares for her as if she is, too.
Falling in love with her husband had never been part of Isobel's plan. But when their future is suddenly in peril, Isobel must find a way to save him-from himself and from the deception threatening to tear them apart.

From the first chapter, I was hooked, and literally growled under my breath every time I had to stop reading. The internal struggles of each character draws you in, holding onto your own emotions. You feel everything they feel and all you want is for Kenneth and Isobel to make it. Beautifully written, this book is a MUST HAVE!!
