I loved this story completely. What's not to love, with a strapping hero, a wee loveable bairn called Mags, a wolf, a mop eared lapdog, a widowed heroine, and nefarious conspirators who just don't stand a chance against the highlander returned from the Americas.
Callum MacCreath left Scotland in 1806!for the Americas under a cloud, he returns unwilling in 1816 hell bent on vengeance.
His childhood friend Rebecca, the woman he'd taken for granted is now alone and besieged, unknown to her, poised on the edge of grave danger. She and her daughter Mags are not expecting Callum. My the Sparks do fly! Margaret is a gem, she stole my heart and Callum's. I love that Mags latches onto the idea of being part of the 'pack'. Just a wonderful byplay that allows heaps of opportunities for laughter and adds cachet to an already masterful plot.
Just great fun and lots if swashbuckling where there are no pirates but a Highlander bent on revenge!
