Beaten and left for dead, Sir Lucas Murray is a man wounded in body and soul.

Dialogue is written in Scottish "dialect". Ach, nay! I canna tell ye how it pained me! I willna suggest it to anybody, as I found it verra annoying. I suspicion that it will be found pleasin' to those whose hearts trip a little faster around kilts, though I canna remember a single mon wearin' one.

Ach, aye! Toss it in yon bonnie bankes and yon bonnie braes!

Wonderful read

I chose this rating because the book was a nice easy read. The problems they faced where believable. Now I did find the heart break she was having was a little annoying, could easily been fixed early on just by talking out their problems. Which they did do, but I felt that part was drugged out a little. Nice ending to the book with family coming together. Would recommend book to any all, especially to those of us who like a hero who rides in a horse and saves the day.

Wasn't so crazy about this book. I was really tempted to skip parts cause it just got soooo redundant and dragged out. It was hard to finish. I felt the same conversations were brought up over and over and it took forever to draw to a conclusion. I felt the back drop of the story was kind of convoluted and the hero and heroines 'misunderstanding' of each other just got to be really tiring and idiotic. The author managed to make both of them come off so oblivious and stupid at parts by dragging o ...more

I love the Murray stories and this one doesn't disappoint. Can read in any order as all are stand alone stories which I like. I'm slowly working my way through the lot of them :)

Lucas Murray (Artan's twin brother) has fallen in love with Katerina Haldane, until he is brutally attacked and told it is at her direction. He literally crawls from the area an eventually his brother finds him and brings him back home to heal. What Lucas does not know is that Katerina was also attacked and thought dead. He returns when he is strong enough, and finds her in hiding from her half sister, who actually instigated the violence against them both. He accuses her of ordering the beating ...more

Very good. I liked the part where Artan was trying to get all the children in the wagon so they could go visiting.
Feb 16, 2008 Diana rated it really liked it
After a year of recovering from grievous injuries, Lucas Murray returns for revenge on the one he thinks responsible: Katerina, his true love.

This was a darker book, with insidious plots and perceived betrayals. The undercurrent of betrayal lurked throughout, causing many issues with Katerina and Lucas. Like Highland Barbarian, the climax comes fairly early, leaving a good portion of the book to deal with cleaning up the emotional messes. They are a great couple, however, after the first 100 pag

Great character, interesting story line, and entertaining.

Usually love this series but this book I didn't like a lot. I really liked the female lead but there was something missing when I read the book to get engaged and invested in their love interest. It's weird because I really love this series. I have read so many of the other books and had no trouble with them at all. Anyways this series is great so I won't stop reading just because of this one book but if you're only looking for a single book to read from the series don't choose this one!
Aug 29, 2015 Angel rated it it was amazing
Lucas is after proving to himself that although the last time he was here he was beaten nearly to death and had his leg broken that he is still a man who can handle his own business, what he never expected was to see Katerina again and to still have the longing for her...Katerina can't believe her eyes when she sees Lucas standing there getting ready to fight....when you have nothing to hold onto but anger can love creep back in....onto the next

One mistaken look caused a lot of pain for both Lucas and Katerina. We spend much of the story waiting for Lucas to figure out the truth and then wait for Katerina to stop being bull-headed. A great match these two make. For the most part, I enjoyed the book. However, it seemed to take them forever to work their problems out. There was a lot of action and it made the story go by fast. All in all, not a bad read.

I think I have read one too many books where the hero is tongue-tied around the heroine, and everyone is afraid of his/her own shadow. The story was different, but just not believable even for a romance, where most rules fly out the door. If you want the whole series, it's worth reading. If you need to skip one or two, put this one on the "skip" list.

Lucas Murray is one of my favorites in the family, which is why i rated it the way i did. He seemed 'out of character' in this book though. I expected more witty remarks and a bit more arrogance from him than there was. The story seemed to drag on and even went in circles at times. Even with all that said, I still LOVE the series.

I did it again ... I had such high hopes for this story after reading a teaser from Artan's tale. It was a nice story - but not gripping or heart-wrenching or sigh- or weepiness-inducing. Perhaps I'll take a break from Ms. Howell for now.

3.5 stars. Pretty cute book. A little too long with the hiding part. And the romance between Lucas and Katerina didn't gel until the end of the book but overall a really good book.
Sep 22, 2013 Petula rated it it was amazing
i am glad i read this straight after "highland barbarian" it is a totally different story , but because the two heroes are twins it completes the stories better.
This book just dragged for me. I was alittle more than 3/4 finished, and didn't care anything about the characters. I ended up never picking it up again to finish.

I hated this book. The book just drags, and the author spends so much time explaining even the obvious. I will never read another book by this author!

It was the typical highland warrior romance. It was a good, quick read but not a keeper.
