Like his ancestors, Iain Campbell, the Marquess of Kerr, swears loyalty to whichever government happens to be in power. Privately, however, he despises the British for the slaughter following the Battle of Culloden and finds himself playing a dangerous game of deception. When he defends a fellow Scot under cloak of darkness, Iain is wounded and must put his life in the hands of a mysterious healer. The prickly, bewitching woman saves him with her touch, though she denies Iain the pleasure of a smile from her sensuous lips—which only makes him want her all the more.

Cait Campbell has no fondness for the marquess and his political machinations. Now he makes a treacherous patient, since Cait is harboring Jacobite fugitives in her cellar. But with Iain confined to bed rest, Cait sees another side of the fierce warrior. How can she hate a man whose eyes sparkle in candlelight, a man whose voice stirs her soul? She soon discovers that he loves the Scottish people deeply—and, despite her painful intuitions, Cait is tempted to let Iain love her, too.

An adversarial love story that takes the reader through a devastating time in Scotland's history. The author puts together a story that shows multiple sides to history and how people were reacting after the British slaughtered many Scots at the Battle of Culloden. 

She weaves a subtle love story amongst the intrigue taking the reader into the lives of Cait and Ian Campbell as they both fight for what they believe is right and wrong for Scotland. Somewhere is all this messy war there slowly emerges the possibility that all is not what it seems and these two begin the slow process of personal healing. 

For me I was impacted on how stubborn personalities can lose so much time, love and family in order to be right. This book shows that healing due to a feud can come even after forty years but both have to take a step. That you can never judge a book by it's cover. And that sometimes when you least expect it you fall in love with the enemy. 

The author does a phenomenal job of expressing devastation, anger, loss, hope and love while keeping the story forward moving. It is well written and keeps the reader stuck to the pages till the very end.

I give it 4 STARS and recommend it for those who love a little meatier story with their love.

 Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
