Summary

Feared as a demon because of his two different colored eyes, as well as by his outlandish actions, Highlander Onyx MacKeefe is known as a madman. While celebrating his birthday one cold night at a Lowland pub, he meets a bonnie Englishwoman who says she is searching for her father's murderer and thief. And when he recognizes the name of the person she seeks as his own mother, his birthday takes a bad turn.

Lady Loveday de Lacy, known as Lovelle, comes looking for not only a murderer from the past, but also something that's been stolen - her mother's Book of Hours. She is desperate to find it, as she needs the help of the mystical charms at the back of the book. But when she meets a rugged Highlander who takes her captive in order to secure his mother's life, she finds herself being reckless, and also attracted to the dangerous man.

But things only become more complicated as Lovelle and Onyx find themselves needing each other, but knowing they are enemies. And the more they try to fight off the attraction between them, the stronger it becomes. But neither of them see the harrowing future in store for them as Onyx is faced with demons of his past and there is also an outbreak of the plague that threatens their very lives.

Can a proper Englishwoman and a Scottish madman find the strength and will to work together before impending doom overtakes them?

Loved it

This is the 2nd time im listening to this series and enjoyed this first book even more than the first time, because this time I listened to the previous series so I knew who all the characters were at the end. I loved the reunion at the end when all the families got together. Tim Campbell was brilliant as always. I love all the books he narrates. I have listened to most of the historical romances he has narrated and will definitely listen to his most recent ones. This book is definitely worth a credit. Now on to book 2,Aiden's story.

Onyx

Well I don’t know if this is the last book of the Dagger series or the first book of the Madman Mackeef books. Wherever it sits it is wonderful. The four books of the Dagger Series were fantastic. They told of a childless lady who was desperate for a child and she came across a blind old hag, who sold her 4 beautiful jewelled daggers. She had no more money so she stole the fifth dagger. Then refused a beggar boy any money to help him. So the old hag cursed her and when she was pregnant with child 5 the child was a boy born dead and she died herself. Onyx continues from there. It is a wonderful book, I loved every word of it. It was narrated beautifully. Miss Rose, you are wonderful yourself and to put all these books together is fantastic. They are a brilliant collection of books. Thank You so much.
