A fierce Highland laird ready to kill for king and country…

When Torin McLeren discovers his neighbor’s plot against his king, he takes their daughter as his prisoner, thereby stopping her father’s plot from going forward. But that leaves him with a woman under his roof whom he can’t ignore, and not just because she’s his enemy’s daughter…

A woman who’s as much trouble as she is temptation…

Shannon McBoyd decides to use her captor to experience passion for the first time, and then to destroy him. But her plan goes awry because once she has lured Torin into her bed, she no longer wants to hurt the one man who seems to value and understand her…

Even if her father will kill him-and her-when he discovers what they’ve done…


I was a little hesitant starting this book.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it going into the first chapter. I am so glad I kept reading.

I like the heroine Shannon. She is a strong personality that fits perfectly with the strong willed Torin.  The witty dialogue was feisty and fun that was executed in the perfect parts of the book.  The sexiness of the book was perfect without going overboard and left me wanting even more.  The author does go into detail a lot, but something I was willing to overlook since I loved the characters so much. This was my first read by this author and I definitely will be keeping my eye out for more Scots and Damsels from a wonderful writer!


Very Good! I would recommend this book! 4 STARS
