Rory Campbell, Lord Calder, paid little attention to the castle dairymaid when the first prisoner escaped. He caught on quick with the second breakout.
Unfortunately for him, a harried moment places him in her debt and he can not, in good conscience, turn the little minx over to be imprisoned.
Diane MacLean brazenly liberates her mother and cousin from the clutches of the evil Campbells. She is very wary of Rory, but challenges him at every turn.
The two clash often, even as desire springs between them. But conspiracies, vicious politics and murder keep them at arms length most of the time. And Diane finds it very hard to trust the man she loves not to betray her or her family.
Book two in the Highland Series is the story of a pair of lovers who must learn to trust before learning to love and heal.
Reviewer: A reader
I have nothing to say about historical accuracies, since I am in no position to comment about it, but the book was lovely. In a simple narration, it brings out the story of the young lady in question, bringing traces of humour and irony into the story, such as the daring escapades of switching places with her mother and attempted rescue of her brother. The book was a story, a tale to be told, and not some mushy thing that completely centers around two people and their passion. The passion is there, nicely kept away and blended into the rescue, the characterization is there. Yet it was sensitive, and a gently unfolding tale that leaves much to be remembered. Loved the ending..
Really good for a romance book!
