This is book 3 of a trilogy and a must read. Jen Holling is a great writer and one not to be missed by any romance reader.
After enjoying the first two books, TEMPTED BY YOUR TOUCH and TAMED BY YOUR DESIRE,in the BRIDES OF THE BLOODSTONE trilogy, I was pleasantly surprised that Holling's books just keep getting better! As I came to know and love the characters I dreaded the book coming to an end. The passion portrayed between Mona and Patrick kept me turning pages late into the night. I was on edge throughout the entire book waiting to see what evil Ridley would dish out next. I was thrilled with the conclusion, all of the details from the previoius novels were tied up beautifully. Holling writes the fantasy that romance readers are looking for; mystical and romantic, with evil in hot pursuit of the hero and heroines happiness.
The sizzling conclusion to this romantic trilogy opens in 1542 Scotland, as the ancient feud between the Maxwell and Graham clans continues. The legendary Bloodstone can bring an end to the rivalry, and Mona Graham is the only one who knows its location. She enlists an unlikely ally: Patrick Maxwell, rogue knight and her clan's sworn enemy.
Third in the series. I enjoyed her next series better.
Last in the Brides of the Bloodstone trilogy, this book confirmed the series is not as good as the MacDonell Brides trilogy. Although this book was better than the second book and the whole series worth the read, it was just a little lacking in plot. It just didn't hold my attention.
