Pretty good, but honestly my attention began to wane a bit about halfway through. If you like betrayal and heroes who have to make amends, this is worth a read.

Mary and Alexander are members of rival clans in medieval Scotland. Mary is betrothed to Alexander in the hopes of an alliance. Their first meeting and courtship occur before the events of the book and I wish I'd have seen more of that, particularly the betrayal scene.

We're told that Mary had fallen in love with her betrothed and felt he

I really did enjoy this book, the first I have read of this author. I really felt a connection with the characters, and not just the two main characters, but minor characters as well.
There was no lesson in history to be had, but I really enjoyed some of the little bits and pieces included that gave in insight into what some of the everyday rituals and traditions of that particular era in Scotland were like.
I did feel the book was a little slow at times, and felt a little disappointment at the en

I believe I made the right decision in purchasing this book after reading good review from Karen.

This is the first Teresa J Reasor that I have read and it is truly wonderful. You fall in love with Alexander and Mary and smiling at Duncan’s sweet-humor words. You will cry, sigh, and laugh but you will not put this book done until you reach the last page.

There were often spelling mistakes, but it doesn’t stop me from reading. I am utterly happy with this book, and would recommend it.

I am surprised how much I enjoyed this book, especially the first 60%. I like the cover and the title too.

This is the first book I read in 2017, finished it at 3am. This writer is new to me and I did not know what to expect. Surprisingly it was very easy for me to get into the story, even though what the hero did was kind of hard to stomach.

When the book begins the horrendous act had been done: to secure the safety of his men, peace and a fragile alliance, Alexander had done the unthinkable: he

This is really a 3.5 star (3 being a little stingy, 4 being a little generous.) There are some very good points in this book and some very bad ones, not much in-between. The good is the incredible depth and feeling Reasor uses when exploring the feelings and actions of both Alexander and Mary. Alexander, as he deals with the guilt and regret of "ruining" Mary, which leaves her pregnant and forced into marriage, and his resolve to win back her trust and her love. Mary, while dealing with her own ...more

I'm not sure why but I just had a hard time getting through this one. I think it was because I wasn't really in the mood for a historical romance. I didn't connect with the characters in the story and the plot was just so-so for me. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either.

Just call me a reading machine. I read this book in one day. I really enjoyed it. There's something about a hot bodied Highlander that always draws me in.

When the story begins, the heroine is already deflowered and is pregnant! GASP! Apparently, the hero "betrayed" her and she hates him desperately.

So begins 100 pages or so of the hunky, tawny-eyed hero begging and scraping for her forgiveness. I like that he drew the line at certain points and made the heroine realize that she needed to meet h

Recommended to me by fellow blogger mad4rombks. A sweet yet poignant historical romance about a young woman who is forced to marry the Laird who shamed her and now they both struggle to make the marriage work. Just loved. Watching Mary struggle to forgive Alexander while watching Alex struggle against the guilt he feels for his previous actions made for an engaging storyline. Humor, action, a taunt plot line, and various sundries make Teresa Reasor an author I plan on reading more of.

Wanted to read a simple love story and it was simple. Makes you crave good books. And it has the warrior theme ...

I think almost all of the reviews here are pretty spot on already so I won't elaborate too much.

This story was very touching at times with the hero trying to earn back a trust he lost and the heroine overcoming feelings of shame and betrayal and learning to trust again. It was very emotive and it explored what they were both feeling.

The story immediately draws you in with the action, dragged a teeny tiny bit in the middle and then finished with this over the top ending that was pretty unbeliev

Nice story

I enjoy the story. And the characters, but not as much a I expected to do.
I found there was less passion and less romanticism between those characters than in the books of the military romance serie with the first book "breaking free".
I like the plot story here, the unfold. But it felt short at the end. And wished for more. I was waiting for more passion, and feeling way more emotions as I was getting used to with the author's other books.
So I have been a bit disappointed.
I was very we

I loved the whole premise of the story where the heroine has already been dishonored and pregnant by the time the story starts. It was a treat to read how the h/H deal with the feelings that they already have and will develop along the way. I liked the concept of the main characters with Mary being a strong, independent woman but not subjected to bitchiness that often follows to some authors mind and the hero, Alexander, is a strong alpha male with a tendency to become an asshole WHICH I think a ...more

After suffering through a few really bad books lately, I went back through my archieves in Kindle and found this book that I had read a long time ago. It sucked me right in just like it had done before.

Alexander Campbell, a scottish warrior, seduces Lady Mary and releases the evidence of their tryst, so that all might see. She is mortified, suddenly pregnant, and detested by her own father. He insists she must marry the man of his choice, until Alexander claims Mary for his wife.

This is one of t

Another strong heroine that doesn't forgive easily... and shows how it take time to reconcile a relationship. I enjoy it as it shows that pretty words or gentle kiss cannot erase the error the hero's wrongdoing. It takes time & action to understand each other and see the truth of it.

If you like Hannah Howell, you probably enjoy this book. The main characters played off each other well and the secondary characters were strong enough where you would want to hear their story too!. I did feel the story peaked a little too soon for the ending was a bit flat. I look forward to her next book.

Romance: 3.5
Steaminess:3.5
Action/suspense:3.5
Overall:3.5

I really liked this book and it's not often that I like it as much as a contemporary romance but I do. Alexander was really sweet and Mary was a great character. I like that she wasn't as petty or stubbornly Stupid as most heroines in historical romances.

this was such a sweet and romantic read.

Nice, angsty book with a strong h. While I felt the H/h characters were well drawn and developed over the book nicely, the antagonists were more static and flatly drawn. It is a challenge that many writer fail, to have antagonists that are crafted as carefully as the H/h.
