The second of this trilogy...I wish I could keep all of these books. They're wonderful.
If you have never read this author, and you like HR you have to read her books. She is great.
A good historical romance.
At the wedding ceremony of her sister Sarah, Agnes Mackenzie leapt in the path of a speeding arrow, saving Edward Napier's life. For Agnes, it was a matter of instinct and training -- all Scotland knew her fame as a bodyguard. Few knew the heartache that spurred her perilous course.
Despite the towering rage of her father, Lachlan, duke of Ross, Edward Napier used his medical skills to tend Agnes's wounds. Owing her his life, the widower granted her request to accompany him and his children to Glasgow. But he had no intention of allowing this beautiful, foolhardy woman to search out his unknown assassin.
Agnes had foresworn romance until she could right the wrong that burdened her, yet Edward's powerful intellect and easy grace drew her like a magnet. Her audacious ways provoked him to fascination -- and occasionally to fury. Amid a new storm of poisoned arrows, they would yield to a love as sudden as it was joyous.. a love to cherish and protect as fiercely as life itself.
