For a complete review which may contain SPOILERS, please click 'Read More' below:
James Cameron, Chief of the Camerons, is known as 'The Devil'. He will use his fearsome reputation and ruthless determination to ensure his clan's victory at any cost - even to himself. His burning attraction for his enemy's sister is a distraction he can ill afford.
Catriona MacDonald is as drawn to The Devil as she is irritated by him. His mocking eyes and handsome smile are enough to drive her mad! She should be concentrating on her kinsmen's welfare as the day of battle approaches but she cannot expel thoughts of James from her mind.
There are many bumps in the road to their happily ever after: the bloody battle, a mysterious cloaked figure, and the fact that they are sworn enemies.
I admit that this book had a slow start for me but by the end I was fully invested in James and Catriona's relationship. There was intrigue and mystery - who is the cloaked figure seen lurking about? There was a powerful compact between friends. There was a magical, intelligent stag and a pair of old, faithful hounds. There was a love that, by all accounts, should be denied. The end of the story felt like just the beginning for these two and I am looking forward to reading book two. A great historical read!
Book 2 in the trilogy, Temptation of Highland Scoundrel, is out now.
