Journey to the treacherous and tempestuous Highlands of fifteenth century Scotland in Hannah Howell's passionate tale of a feisty beauty determined to uncover the softer side of the iron-willed warrior who has wed her, bed her.and stolen her heart. Though she has yet to be courted by any man, spirited Gillyanne Murray decides the time has come to visit the dower lands gifted to her by her father's kinsmen. She arrives to find the small keep surrounded by three lairds, each one vying for her hand.and property. Though resolved to refuse them all, the threat of battle on her threshold forces her to boldly choose a suitor: Sir Connor MacEnroy, a handsome, daring knight of few words. As his wife, Gillyanne is stunned by his terse, cold distance-and her own yearning to feel passion in his arms. Now, bringing her healing touch to a land and a keep ravaged by treachery and secret enemies, she dares to reach out for the one thing she fears she may forever be denied.her husband's closely guarded heart.
A good story with fun characters.
Felt affinity for fiesty Gillyanne who tames the heart of Sir Connor. Interesting plot. Found some of the scottish brouge slowed down my reading. Had too vivid descriptions of the nether regions for my taste.
Gillyanne Murry,three lairds, land, love, and as always with the Highlands...passion!
Hannah Howell never disappoints. Good historical
Another wonderful Highlander book by Hannah Howell. Must read.
The time period and subject matter is one of my favorites and this was book was nicely done. Readers should be warned there is a good deal of graphic sex but it added to the story.
The female lead is the pretty typical independent, head strong sort found in novels of this genre. The author didn't overdue it, though, and I found myself really liking the character.
Liked the male lead and glad it ended as it did. Can't say more for fear of revealing too much.
