This is the first book in the series that I read. I almost felt like the book was two stories put together - Both of which were excellent. I enjoyed the action and story line much more than I expected. I even enjoyed the unexpected twist at the end. My only complaint is that I wanted more between the hero and heroine. Fortunetaly, the rest of the story was so great that I didn't mind to much in the end.
I enjoyed this story of the 3rd brother Patrick so much that I managed to stay up till 3am and still finish it in 24 hrs. Great plot and romance and wonderful new characters that added extra excitement and interest to the main love story. Was great to see the two married brothers and wives again a few yrs later. This author is first rate in historical details and character development and develops great heroes and heroines. This story had a touch less romantic interactions than the previous in series but it still is an outstanding story and has a great finale. I could not guess how it could end. She really left the Diego character with lots of loose ends hanging so I hope to hear his story one day. I have just started reading this author and she is one of my all time favorite Scottish Highland authors. Really best to read this series in order.
