Courtland MacCarrick is nothing but a highlander who is dangerous.. well at least that's what Lady Annalía Tristán Llorente eventually tells herself. But when she first finds Courtland lying next to the riverbank bloodied and injured she can't help but get him back to her house so that she could take care of him. However, once he wakes up she instantly regrets that decision.

Courtland is cold to her and takes over her house. Annalia is prejudiced of all highlanders, because she has been told that they are a rough and dangerous type of people. But Court only makes it worse by treating her without respect. He also is attracted to her but is trying to maintain his distance because he is thought to be cursed (along with his two brothers).

Court has other business to attend to, like keeping Annalia safe since it's his fault that her brother is currently being held prisoner. Court was hired by General Reynaldo Pascal to clear out the town of people so that he could take over. Not only is Pascal holding Annalia's brother hostage, but he's using him as a bribe so he could marry Annalia. Court must now rescue the brother and save Annalia (since he is in love with her). But can he do all this and still remain unattached to the woman he loves?

This book was entertaining. Court was such an interesting character that obviously hid his feelings from everyone around him and Annalia saw through him. It was interesting to watch him struggle with his control when he was around Annalia and to watch how she reacted to him. I am excited for the next books in the series.
