really liked it

Received in exchange for a honest review.

What I like most about this book is how Aisla isn’t what you expect for the time this takes place in. She is strong, independent, smart,feisty and mischievous. You can see that her heart is still hurting from her past with Niall but she is also frustrated at what is happening as well. She guards herself well and is very wary of Niall and really doesn’t believe he has changed. I love the deviousness of Niall’s mom.

Niall long ago had his heart broken. He has come to terms with his part in Aisla walking away and has changed since than.He works hard and is there for the people of his laird. He doesn’t want handouts nor does he want sympathy. He just wants to work his land and mine and help his people. Only a wrinkle comes into his world and throws him off kilter.

Aisla must go back to face Niall and asks for him to let her go. This is where the fun begins. We can see the chemistry between these two ignite and spark the pages from the minute Aisla steps on his land but we also see the underlying anger and tension. Niall is angry she is back and why. Aisla is angry she has to be there and for his conditions to being set free. So she intends to make him miserable and win especially after what she overheard. What follows is some snarky banter, tension that sparks the pages, devious ways that have you smile at the antics between these two and a love that is being denied. Niall has changed so much since Aisla left but she doesn’t want to see it for she is afraid. She doesn’t want to feel hurt again. As she begins to see everything around her and learns about him and how he is with his people, her heart softens. But there is a mystery going on as well. someone is sabotaging Niall’s mines. And it is getting more dangerous with each mishap. While Niall is dealing with this he is also dealing with his wife’s antics to get him to secede and her win the bet on who succumbs to seduction first. Only Niall is just as devious and finds this side of Aisla invigorating and seductive.

Watching these two battle their attraction while relearning who each other is is fun and seductive. Seeing Niall do what those in love do so others can be happy is heartwarming and heartbreaking. The story is one full of fun times, devious moments, snarky banter but also so much entertainment in the banter and love. We see family that is close and help one another while also protecting those around them. a mystery that keeps you intrigued and a romance that entrances you to the end with characters you love and villains you want to see get their just due.
