To avoid the dreadful fate of marriage to a man she does not love, Nora, niece of Eleanor of Aquitane, implores Ewan MacAllister, a man that both her father and betrothed fear, to help her seek protection with her aunt. Against his better judgement, Ewan agrees to whisk Nora away to England, fully intending to hand her off to his brother. Despite Ewan's tortured past and Nora's perilous situation, they soon find themselves helplessly drawn to each other. Dare they risk the wrath of clansmen of Nora's powerful father, or are they willing to chance all for the promise of true love?
This book came into my view as I was checking it in at the library. Now that I've read it, I think it might have been better to leave this one behind. The story and characters were fairly cheesy. Not only that, but the whole feel of the novel was far too modern. It was obvious the author was trying to write a historical novel without referencing much history. I didn't realize it at the time but this is part of a series. So unless you are a die hard Sherilyn Kenyon fan (who is Kinsley MacGregor by the way), I would pass this up.
