Book 2 of MacLean trilogy. Book 1 is Knight in My Bed. Book 3 is Wedding for a Knight. All are Scottish historical romances, set in the 1300s.
Good romance set in the Highlands. Iain loses his wife and acts out, earning him a penance of taking a family heirloom to a holy shrine. Madeline poses as a nun (ha!) to extract family vengeance. They hook up, posing as man and wife, to reach their goals in a good romantic tale.
Adventure and mystery in the 1300's Scottish Highlands. He was the lord of the land-but a slave to one woman's passion. As punishment for burning his family chapel on the anniversary of his wife's death, Scottish knight Iain Maclean must go on a pilgrimage to an obscure monastery on the far side of Scotland. On his way, he meets Lady Madeline Drummond and becomes her protector.
OK story, good for a quick read.
a third in series, I read it because I hate to not finish a series. let's just say the other 2 were better but not by much. It was an okay story but it didn't live up to its cover's promise
A better than average historical romance. The author has at least studied the time period and it shows.
From back cover: No lass is less suited for the convent than strong-willed Madeline Drummond. No man is a poorer candidate for penance than hot-tempered Iain MacLean. But Madeline is posing as a nun -- long enough to take revenge on a murderous villain. And Iain is dutifully bringing a family relic to a holy shrine -- as the price for his own reckless ways. When the fiery Highlander and the fearless lady meet, pretenses are shed like lovers' clothes and vows of chastity are scorched by a single kiss. Posing as husband and wife, the two firebrands join forces to reclaim Madeline's ancestral home. And she may soon wonder whether 'tis a blessing or a curse to be the one true love of the Master of the Highlands!
She is posing a nun hell bent on revenge, he is paying penance by transporting a family relic and when they meet their are fireworks. They team up to reclaim what is hers and wonders about being the true love of the master of the highlands
