Deep in the lush Highlands, a powerful laird with everything to lose must risk it all for the lass who storms into his keep—and his heart.
Raised on the debauched margins of society, Amelia Taylor depends upon her quick wit and fiery spirit to survive. When danger closes in on her already precarious home, she flees into the Highlands and finds refuge in the iron-strong circle of Clan Mackenzie. There, her lack of propriety and intriguing beauty draw the attentions of their formidable leader. But to remain safe from pursuit, she must conceal her identity, even if it means deceiving Laird Knox Mackenzie.
A fiercely guarded and staunchly moral warrior, Knox never expected a ravishing stranger like Amelia to reawaken his desires. Yet as their heated confrontations unlock untold passion, temptation proves impossible to resist. So when Amelia's tapestry of lies begins to unravel, the secrets from her dark past threaten both his Clan and a future they can only dare to dream of….
Though an interesting and pleasing tale, I had difficulty with the book being in first person. As a reader I like to hear all sides of view in my mind. Amelia is a very strong heroine with a innate sense of family honor, but she is one of those females that needs to be knocked upside the head for being so darn contradicting sometimes that it's a wonder why the very touching hero, Knox falls for her at all. This tale was a fast paced adventure full of deception and redemption. HIGHLANDER MINE by Juliette Miller is a solid tale that I enjoyed. Looking forward to more from this author.
