Neil MacCurrie, earl of Torridon, is trying to return to Scotland, but when he mistakenly believes that Ronley Hall is a safe-haven for Jacobites, he is captured and held hostage. Eileen Ronley, cousin to Queen Anne and Princess Mary, doesn't know his true identity, but because she feels a connection with him, she sets him free. From that chance encounter, their destinies entwine amidst the intrigue of the English court and the political turmoil of 17th century Scotland.

Excellent, Only very sorry for the series to end, the adventures of the Torridon Twins is intriguing. I would most definitely love to see more.

Enjoyable. I preferred the plot and characters (including the Highlands as a "character") in this 2nd installment, and would absolutely read Duncan's story, if Ms. Givens writes it. ...more

I like Kathleen Givens, and the story and historical setting was right up my alley.

Neil MacCurrie, a Scottish lord trapped in a hostile England, is rescued by Eileen Ronley, who may be the rightful queen of England.

This wasn't a romance, it was a political science book with an incidental romance. WAY too much intrigue. I found myself skimming most parts.

I can't rate this book because even though I have read it I don't remember what it was about. I read it less than a year ago and even though I have read and reviewed books lately that I read over a year ago I can't remember this one at all. This is the only book I own I cant remember. ...more

Too much politics for my taste, with a tad of romance thrown in. Not enough devotion to character to put up with the political agendas. Just not my cuppa.
