Just love Henleys' writings - Flaming Tina Kennedy's gypsy brother finally gets his story and it was great and worth the wait!
This was a great Scottish romance with plenty of the former characters from Tina and Ram's story mixed in with new characters to provide a entertaining read.
Raven and Heath are perfectly suited to each other and their romance is full of adventure, intrigue, and lusty romance that are trademark Virgina Henley
Historical, with a touch of supernatural. Both Raven and Heath have "gifts", the way those gifts are woven into the story was nicely done and enjoyable. Some decent plot twists and a good story make for a fun read.
