Summary

At age 11, Alex Sinclair pledges an oath to the Duke of Chatham promising to serve and protect his illegitimate daughter, Lucy FitzHarris. Nine years later, the duke unexpectedly takes Alex up on his vow, offering the future Laird of Balforss his daughter's hand in marriage.

Now a man, hotheaded Alex has difficulty convincing Lucy - who would rather starve to death than marry a vulgar Scot - to go through with the arranged marriage. Once Lucy arrives in Scotland, she cannot resist the magic of Balforss or the allure of her handsome Highland warrior.

But when Alex seemingly betrays Lucy right before their wedding, she is tricked into running away. Alex must rein in his temper to rescue his lady from unforeseen danger and Lucy must swallow her pride if she hopes to wed the Highlander she has come to love.

Brilliant story

You’ll love the twists and turns of this story. It really keeps you hooked. I think every reader will fall a little bit in love with Alex. The narrator brings the characters to life and makes this book a page turner.

I Absolutely Loved this Book

I enjoyed everything about this book. The story & the characters.
The whole thing was brought to life by the perfect narrator. She never missed a beat. It was brilliant.
I'm off now to listen to the next book in the series.
I would definitely recommend it.
