Night Owl Reviews' Top Pick
I loved it! This story takes off where Highland Vengeance ended. If possible (and I'm not saying it is) then this book is even better than the first one. It is certainly darker and more angst filled. That's what I liked most about it, the fact that this author was capable of making me feel the characters pain. I found myself in tears many times while reading this story. And isn't that what we all look for in the books that we read and love? Not necessarily the tears, but certainly the emotions. Well, I challenge you to read this story and not feel those emotions.

RT Book Reviews

The second book of Saxon's Highlands Trilogy blends together several interesting and little-explored details of Scottish history to create an emotional journey that, though often painful, is ultimately very rewarding. With a well-crafted, detailed world and plenty of action, this is a series that will sweep readers away.

This story takes up where book one ends, actually the first book of this family doesn't end it is combined with this one. Daniel meets his long lost brother, Bio! A very different brother, a warrior and a whore. However the story blends in very good as the two brothers become very close. Bio is a good man who was mistreated horribly as a child and was a slave for his father for many years. he finally has enough money to get to his brother. Bio was a very handsome half breed that Quality ladies craved for!and paid much gold for his services. He meets his love and fights dearly for her through many trials and lies. This is a very different type of story about Highlanders but one that you will enjoy from beginning to the end.

I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one! I loved the characters and their life stories. This book had me doing a double take at how fast Bao and Jesslyn's story took. It was flawless! I am impressed with K.E. Saxon and how she took the taboo topics (which is the real world) tragic, and weaved them in these books. As in the first book, with the massacre (considering the era) and this second with a victim of child molestation (where people could get away with it more back then). There is just so much that goes on through this story, marriages, births, treachery, blackmail and I won't forget LOVE...It was great the way all the characters from the first book stayed with the second and how Jesslyn and Maryn's friendship grew. The fast pace in this book was amazing...you just can't put it down! It gave you a jump start from the beginning. This book, and as in the first book, I felt the characters and like in the first book, my heart went out for Bao and his sister Branwenn.

I would of gave both books 5 stars but in order for that to happen, the book needs to make me cry at least once and have me laugh out loud. Not that this book didn't stir up all sorts of feelings, it did. I would recommend this book to everyone who loves Highland romances and isn't afraid to read about things
that really happen(ed)in the the real world because that's how this author incorporates this story.

I could not decide between a 4 or 4.5 stars. Finally decided on the 4. I thought it was a good book. However I will give some warnings for people who are easily offended. Frist when Bao and Jesslyn first marry, he treats her really bad. He has a bad misunderstanding doing with her family causing his mother to be sold to his father. His mother dies because of how his father treated them, and Bao is horribly abused a good portion of his life because of this. Thank goodness this last only about a chapter or I was going to be done with the book if it lasted too long. Second some of the horrible things Bao suffered besides being physically abused is at 10 he was sold as a sex slave and forced to service men against his will. If these sorts of things bother you ,it is not for you. Not that there is a lot of detail into this, but it comes up a lot in the book as he has to try and deal with his feelings as well as what other people know about him, or find out about him. with that said, except for that one part of how he treated Jesslyn, and a part where Bao is forced to do something to free his sister from being a slave, he is a really great kind guy. He struggles to be a better person and make a better life. However things kept coming up to knock him back down, and he does not think he should soil Jesslyn with his reputation. Nor does he feel he is good enough for Jesslyn. He feels like he is unclean and doesn't deserve her.

Jesslyn is unsure of herself, because the husband you she loved and you though was a saint in the first book about Daniel and Maryn you find out cheated on her, and with things that happen with Bao, she thinks there is something wrong with her, and doesn't trust any man. I do want to say that Jesslyn's mistrust is why a most of the book they are not together.

This is book 2 in a three part series by K.E. Saxon. Both of the main characters were introduced in book 1 and we get the opportunity to delve deeper into their growing love story. The love scenes between the main characters are steamy and be aware that adult themes are disgusted in this book so I would recommend that readers be at least 18. The story is well written with many twists and turns. The author writes and develops characters with intended depth and the plot takes on multi layers. She takes her time to fold back each layer and reveal more about the story and the impact on our main players. I recommend reading all three books and in order for maximum effect.

Summary:

Set in the turn of the 13th century Scottish Highlands. When widow and devoted mother to a five-year-old, Jesslyn MacCreary, discovers her brief encounter with her laird's long-lost brother has resulted in an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, she is thrust into matrimony with its exotically handsome, angry, and seemingly unwilling, father.

Bao Xiong Maclean, by day, a contracted warrior for William, King of Scots, and by night, a lover for hire to the pampered ladies of the king's court, is fighting his attraction to the lovely flaxen-haired widow whose family is the reason he and his mother became slaves to the man who sired him: Jamison Maclean.
