Caroline had one experience with Sir Grant Dunsmore when he kidnapped her but she seemed to bond with him in some strange way. Since that time, 4 years, she’s not been able to get the man out of her head. Telling herself that she’s going to see him on his desolate island to see a book, when she’s really going to see him, she heads off to his island home. But when she gets there things are not as she thought they would be. There are rumors of ghosts in his castle and the townspeople are more than scared of their Lord.

Grant is not happy to see Caroline as he’s expecting “guests” soon and he didn’t want her there when they arrived. But deep down he’s thrilled that she’s there as Grant couldn’t stop thinking about Caroline while they were parted. Their eventual coming together is quite engrossing and a bit magical and they both find themselves falling hard for each other.

But Grant is involved in something that he can’t involve Caroline in and when danger comes knocking at his door he needs to get Caroline to safety.

Like book two I really liked the setting for this story. I think the desolation and isolation of Muirin Inish had just the right feel for these two very different characters to find what they were looking for in each other.

Unfortunately the story itself, besides the romance, fell a little short for me. Though there was quite a lot going on in the story at any given moment it just didn’t have a great pace to it and I felt my mind wandering while I read and that’s never a good thing. I know that the slower parts of the book were meant to have Grant and Caroline get to know each other better but they just weren’t enough at times.

In the end the story was pretty good and I do feel like I want to go back and read book 1, which I haven’t done yet and see how it all began. If you love a good romance with lots of Irish history involved then this one would be great for you.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
