After being unceremoniously jilted by her betrothed, Lady Mairi MacKenzie is humiliated and heartbroken – but she’s not desperate. As the daughter of an earl, she won’t give her hand to just anyone, and she definitely isn’t swayed by a last-minute proposal from Laird Duncan MacRae. The powerful clan chieftain may be disarmingly handsome and charming, but he’s not a nobleman. Mairi doesn’t want his pity or his charity – even though his dark smoldering gaze makes her melt with desire.Dunn may be a battle-hardened clansman, but he’s always had a soft spot for Mairi. For years, she tormented him with flirtation – only to reject him. But he’s not giving up. When Mairi is attacked by redcoats, Dunn goes after the woman he loves. Through brute strength and fierce action, he will protect her life at any cost. But to win her heart, he will have to show her the tenderness in his own.
Look folks, I can’t say how happy I was to have found this author. Show me a Laird with some integrity, and I’ll show you all of my Kindle money. Seriously. And, ya wanna know the cool thing? Amy Jarecki has more books out there. So, I’m broke now.
This particular book is exactly as the blurb says. There is nothing in advertisement that isn’t delivered within the pages of the story. You get what you ask for and you get it in a way that holds you for as long as it takes to read the entire story.
Starting with the main character, Mairi MacKenzie, I’ll say that she is someone I would want to be my friend. Her range of feelings throughout the book are very human, which a reader tends to appreciate. Though she is a strong character, she isn’t out of touch with reality (her own reality, that is). Maybe the author knew someone like her and that’s why Mairi turned out to be a character I felt I knew.
Dunn, on the other hand, was just as real, but somewhat of a different sort–and that’s not a bad thing. Who doesn’t love a highlander with a heart of gold? He was very well written and a very realistic match for Mairi MacKenzie.
