Handpicked by Robert the Bruce to help him in his quest to free Scotland from English rule, the elite warriors of the Highland Guard face their darkest days. When Bruce is forced to flee, his bid for freedom rests on the shoulders of one extraordinary warrior.
Hero: Erik MacSorley is a ladies man and an excellent seafarer. When he rescues a half drowned woman from the water, he doesn’t expect to want her. Imagine his surprise when his charm and considerable good looks can’t sway her heart! He will have to try harder to win her over.
Heroine: Lady Elyne (Ellie) de Burgh may not be as resistant to Erik’s devil-may-care attitude as she seems. Pretending to be a nursemaid upon capture, she is hiding more than one secret. But then, so is Erik. What will happen when they reveal all?
Review: There’s a lot of background and narrative in this book. It is a stylistic choice and at times can be overwhelming for a casual read, but if you enjoy a bit more substance and meat to a read, this will do the trick. For me, it was more than I wanted and distracted me from the romance of the novel (which is more my meat and potatoes). The slow boil romance is gentle and filled with wit and sass.

Keira’s favorite type of heroes are blind, scarred, and tortured… yes, she understands those should be separate, but all 3 at once is also nice! She enjoys historical romances best and adores audio books because great narrators turn books into auditory/mental movies (and she loves her romantic dramas like Pride and Prejudice/North and South!)
