It's 1572 in Scotland. Mary Stuart is imprisoned and the Earl of Morton is the Regent with his own agenda. The clash between Highlander Marcus MacPherson and English woman Helen Grant is a thing of beauty. Helen is not to be taken for granted as she soon shows the recalcitrant Marcus. The tension between the two, sparked by the chemistry they're both trying to deny is nicely wrought.
I was looking forward to War Chief's Marcus' story. It has some very unexpected elements. Marcus offering Helen Grant to his men as a bride. Helen escaping. Then Helen rescuing Marcus from the Regent, the Earl of Morton's diabolical plans by a necessary deceit, only leads to Helen find herself in further hot water and tied more firmly to this hulking highlander. An annoying man who sets her blood thrumming and her ire to boiling point, entangling the plot and producing an intriguing read.
