Very Good read!! Last of the Murray Brothers Trilogy. Stands alone for I have not read preceding two yet enjoyed this one without feeling lost by not knowing previous story lines.
This was actually my first Hannah Howell book. Since reading this one, I've read several others, and re-read this one two or three times! Bethia caught my attention right away. She is tiny, with one green and one blue eye, hair the color of autumn, and she sticks up for her loved ones like a 200 lb. tiger, often with no thanks. That is until one fateful day whan Sir Eric Murray happens upon her, and sees her bravely, but against unbeatably odds defending herself and her baby nephew (who she has already rescued, along with herself from being poisoned, though she wasn't in time to save her twin and twin's husband). Sir Eric sees Bethia, and though he doesn't quite recognize it, loses his heart. He has one of the handsomest faces in Scotland, and is a very good man and knight. But even though he seems big to Bethia, he is on the small side too. They start their journey together to get young laird James to Bethia's home after Eric swears he will do so. They both have much to learn, and Ms. Howell tells the tale with humor, excitment, passion, embarrassment when wanted, suspense at times, danger, big brothers, big cousins, kings, etc. all throwing their two cents in, and of course, Eric not quite trusting to tell a few details. I haven't found a book of Ms. Howell's I don't like yet, but this one remains my favorite. There is just something very charming about the insecurities of Bethia and her overcoming them. And who can resist such a handsome hero! Even when he does have a few lessons to learn? I recommend this book wholeheartedly, but not if you don't like hot under the collar love scenes! Oh boy, I enjoyed! Every word!
Love all the books in this series! I always love it when I find an author I like who has a series so I never have to mourn the end of the book! It's fine to read just one book too, they are good stand alone stories too!
Eric Murray was the youngest of his brothers, determined to gain his rightful inheritance after 13 years of bitter dispute with his father's family. Starting out alone to confront his tight fisted kinsman, he encountered a chestnut haired beauty set upon by thieves. When she begged for Eric's protection for herself and her infant nephew, Eric promised to deliver them safely to her family.
Bethia Drummond desperately tried to ignore her attraction to the azure-eyed stranger. Still, Eric Murray was Bethia's only hope of escaping her ruthless kin who planned to kill her and her orphaned nephew, and claim their inherited land. Then Bethia learned that Eric, too, was seeking land and coin from his own kin - her family's closest allies. How could she love a man she might one day be forced to stand against? And yet she could not ignore what her troubled heart knew - that this proud knight had more than inspired her deepest passions...he had become her very destiny.
I was told that she was a good author. I was not real crazy about the books. They were not my favorite books, but they were ok.
BOOK 3 of a great trilogy about 1400's Scotland.
3rd in the Murray brothers trilogy and I think the best one. Great story with a great ending!
The final in a trilogy. Another winner by Hannah Howell with several characters from the other books in the series.
Love all Hannah Howells books, total enjoyable read!!!
