loved the main character, Cormac . He is the way I like all my kilted men big, brooding and brawny. The main female character of the story , Marjorie well she was another story. I started to like her and then she became what I have really not liked about my highland books. She doesnt take direction too well and when she gets in trouble all she can do is wish her big, brawny, highlander was there and she should have listened to him and wrings her hands and bemoans her fate on and on and ...more

I don't know why I didn't like this book more, as it had all the elements of a good Highland romance. Maybe it was the TSTL heroine. Or maybe the hero with the same tired "I'm not good enough for you" trope. Or perhaps the childish way the two acted around each other. Regardless, this was a huge disappointment for me as a fan of the author. The two main characters were the ONLY ones I didn't like! i am looking forward to Aiden and also Gregor's story though.

Marjorie Keith needs help. Someone has taken a young boy she has been caring for and nobody will help her find him. Marjorie has spent her time trying to care for the children who live on the streets, the ones who have no family to care for them. To her this is the most important thing she can do with her time. When she was a child she was great friends with two twin boys, Cormac and Aidan MacAlpin. During a visit the children were left alone while their mothers went to the market. Someone broke ...more
