Amanda Scott's characters jump off the page into your heart.
Lady Mairi Macdonald, daughter of the Lord of the Isles, and blessed in ways other women of her time never even dream of, is the kingdom's most sought after bride. But no man has touched her heart, until Lahlan "The Wily" Maclean, a Highland warrior with a network of spies that keeps him the most well informed man in the kingdom. He passionately wants Mairi, and although she scorns his impudent ways, she gasps at his touch. Fighting for what he wants he forms a daring plan to win her, only to ignite the jealousy of a powerful enemy who expects to win not only Mairi but the entire Kingdom of the Isles.
Takes awhile to get into this story. Well written, enough of a mystery to move it towards the conclusion. Scottish island history was very interesting.
Part of the Lord of the Isles series these stories are written with a lot of historical detail. The twin brothers in the series take a while to grow on you, but you will like them in the end.
I just couldn't seem to get into this book. Did not finish
