Set in 1800s in Scotland, this is a second chance romance with treachery, jealousy, misunderstandings and love. Lost and found!

Niall and Aisla were introduced in the previous book where they were teenagers and madly in love. However, six years has passed since and things are very different.

Jealousy and conniving pulled this young couple apart and they went their separate ways. Aisla went to Paris whilst Niall has become a responsible and respected Laird.

Although, they are so far apart, they still have mixed feelings for each other. Love, hate and resentment. When Aisla receives a proposition from her best friend, Jules, she tells him about her past and they come back to Scotland in order for Niall to agree to a divorce.

She is no longer the naive girl who left those years ago, but her spirits remain. He has a successful business and has discovered a talent in craft. As expected, the first meeting doesn't go well. Aisla acts with indifference and Niall with contempt. They come to an agreement with conditions attached. Niall's condition is for Aisla to stay with him. He has revenge in mind, but she is not easily outwitted. It turns into an ongoing mind game.

During that time, Aisla discovers that much have changed about Niall and he is stricken by her beauty, grace and confidence. The more reason to hate her! Underneath, they both still long for one another, but neither of them is prepared to give in. When they do, the green monster who has been lurking around steps in to tear them apart once more.

Niall and Aisla feel betrayed, and any hope of rekindling their relationship is shattered. Niall makes a rash decision which ironically enough, prompts the troublemaker to show her true colours. It then becomes apparent that she too has been played. Even though the signs of her devious actions were apparent, the extent of the damage done is totally unexpected. Although it has its reward, the twist here is heartbreaking and destructive. Is it too late for the damage to be repaired?

This story is compelling and captivating. The relationship between Niall and Aisla is full of different kinds of emotions, but the end is absolutely delightful.

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
