Along with two other Munro lasses, Muireall Munro was taken by Clan Ross raiders nearly a month ago. She's yet to be claimed as a Ross bride. Still, after two failed escape attempts, her hope is waning of ever seeing her home and the younger brother she was raising. But the stranger who pulls her from the surf will change her life forever.
If Muireall reveals who she really is, the delicious man who just saved her life will want nothing further to do with her-yet she needs him if she is ever to escape her Ross captors. If Euan reveals who he really is to the woman he saved, he risks not only his life, but his clan. Left with no choice, can they save each other while they fall in love?

Emotional Highland romance with a dash of thrilling political intrigue! Euan Brodie finds himself shipwrecked in enemy territory, and is shocked to discover he's not the only one trying to escape. Muireall Munro was kidnapped from her own clan a month before, and she's willing to risk anything and everything in order to escape the Ross clan's plan for her. This story kept me glued to each page as Euan and Muireall navigate an assortment of dangerous situations on their way to freedom. And the adventure doesn't stop once they reach the safety of the Brodie keep, as there is still the matter of the ongoing Ross threat as well as the unknown fate of the Munro clan to keep them both from being free to follow through on their soul-deep connection. This is so much more than just a simple romance, as the story involves the fates of several of the family members from each of the involved clans. The story deftly shows the intricate and delicate political balance that enabled neighboring clans to live in harmony, and the devastating consequences when that balance is destroyed. It's an edge-of-your-seat ride across both sides of the Moray Firth that will have you feeling like a fellow clan member before you get to the thrilling conclusion. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
This one had a descent plot and character development. It was slow at times but overall it was good. The conflict is believable and strong. The dialogue was good and the tension between the two main characters did add to the overall development of the storyline. I did think that there were parts that could have been stronger; this one didn’t grab and hold my attention like other historical romances. It did have some passion, though it did stick to the tame side of it. It wasn’t my favorite but of the three I read for NERFA this one was the best because at least it did have some passion and the plot was believable and well developed if not intense.
