Proud Highlander Diana Maclean refused to yield to the English king... or to any member of her family's enemy: the treacherous Clan Campbell. Instead, determined to free her imprisoned mother, she steals into a castle dungeon right under the nose of handsome, powerful Rory Campbell... only to become an outlaw of the British Crown.
But fate would bring them together again. And this time, Rory offers his protection -- and his passion. As their desire sweeps them into a dangerous liaison, Rory and Diana become prisoners of a heritage that forbids their union. Then swords clash once more, and Diana must choose between loyalty to her clan and country -- and a love that could put an end to hate forever...
This book is historically detailed with added mystery and light romance. The story reminds me of the (USA) Hatfield and McCoy rivalry but with a Highland twist..
I enjoyed the story and the characters I just wish there was more "spark" between the two main characters (Rory and Diana). There was romance - it just seemed a bit disjointed because the sensuality was limited. Because of this I give this book 3.5 stars.
Overall, this book is NOT a total disappointment. I still really liked it because of the adventure, mystery, and the family struggles. If you enjoy interesting historical stories that are light on steamy romance then this will be a winner for you. If not, you might want to skip this one and go on to the next.

A brave heroine and a proud hero equals a great book. I would have given it a 5 if the narrator could have read the male voices better. She did a good job, just not great. this book was exciting and interesting. I will try another book from this author.
