Book Description

New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell returns to the fateful realms of the Scottish Highlands, where a man's destiny lies in the heart of the woman who once betrayed him. . .

Beaten and left for dead, Sir Lucas Murray is a man wounded in body and soul. He has brought himself back to becoming the warrior he once was--except for his ruined leg and the grief he feels over the death of the woman he once loved...the same woman who led him into his enemies' hands.

Dressed as a masked reiver, it is Katerina Haldane who saves Lucas as he battles for his life--and for revenge. Shocked that she still lives, Lucas becomes desperate to ignore the desire raging through his body. And Katerina becomes desperate to regain his trust, trying to convince him of her half-sister's role in his beating. Lucas is reluctant to let down his guard, but his resistance melts once Katerina is back in his arms. . .and his bed. Now he must learn to trust his instincts--in battle and in love...

Lucas is on the hunt for revenge against the people who tried to murder him a year ago. He is devastated that one of those people is the woman he had loved so deeply, but he's determined not to let his emotions stop him. When he is attacked from all sides by the same group who tried to murder him before, Katerina and her band of renegades race into the fight to save him. Although he is reluctant to believe Katerina's claims of innocence, Lucas decides to work with Katerina and her men to get revenge on the people who have stolen her castle... the same people who thought they had beaten him to death a year ago. Katerina is determined to convince Lucas that she took no part in that plot to kill him. Lucas is determined to find the truth. Despite their differences, Lucas and Katerina can't deny their hunger for each other.

Hannah Howell's books tend to run either hot or cold. This one was lukewarm. I liked the fact that the story took place in a unique setting. Throughout most of the book, they are living in underground caves. A nice switch from the usual castle scenery. Also, the hero and heroine are both strong, but they are not written to be invincible. Both suffered physical and emotional injuries in their pasts and during the story itself.

Unfortunately, Hannah Howell tends to drag out the "He doesn't really love me."/ "She doesn't really love me." theme in her books. This one took it to an extreme. Lucas spends weeks next to Katerina's bed while fighting to keep her alive as she is racked with fever from injuries, but she can't decide if he really cares. Katerina rides into a sword fight to take Lucas to safety, but he's sure she doesn't really love him. After the villains are killed, there are actually 4 whole chapters spent on dragging out the idea that Lucas and Katerina each think the other doesn't really care. I skimmed the last 3 chapters, but I could tell I didn't miss anything when I read the epilogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars You just gotta love a Highlander story! May 1, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's been a year since the betrayal that almost cost Lucas his life. He'd been beaten and thrown off a cliff while his lady love, Katherine, watched. He's recovered from his injuries and worked hard to rebuild his body to its battle ready condition - and now he's ready to enact revenge and prove himself worthy of being the heir to Donncoill.

Katherine almost lost her life that fateful day as well. She's mourned Lucas's death and tried to carry on the best she can under harsh circumstances. Katherine has allowed all but a few trusted friends to believe that she's dead while she secretly battles against her half-sister, Agnes, and her henchman's plot to obtain all of Dunlochan.

The laird, Katherine's father, stipulated before his death that a council of five men must approve Katherine's or Agnes's choice of husband. If they disapprove and she marries him anyway, then she'll receive a small dowry and tiny plot of land. Lucas would have been approved by the council. Katherine has no doubt that Agnes is behind the attempted murders of Lucas and herself. She's ecstatic when she learns that he's still alive and assumes that he'd know her well enough to know that she would have never wanted any harm to come to him.

Lucas has spent a whole year nurturing his anger and broken heart, will he be able to accept her word that she wasn't involved in the attempt on his life? Regardless of how he feels about her now, it's obvious that they're fighting the same enemy - joining forces makes more sense than fighting alone. Lucas admits to himself that he's still very much in love with Katherine, but will that be enough to build on now that he's scared to trust her again?

3.0 out of 5 stars Revenge and Trust in the Scottish Highlands May 27, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book starts, rather strangely, part-way through the plot. In the first few pages we disocver that Hero and Heroine had previously met offstage, had a romance, become lovers and then had a Big Misunderstanding which meant each thought the other dead and the man thought the lady had betrayed him. When this story starts, these events are a year in the past and the man, Lucas Murray, is returning to the village where the woman Katerina Haldane betrayed him to have his revenge on her (in some unspecified way as he's not a man to do violence to women). When he discovers she died on the same day that she betrayed him he doesn't know quite what to do but then almost instantly he runs into trouble and is rescued by... you've guessed it... the woman who died a year ago.

Lucas instantly accuses her of turning her back on him and thus we start Phase II of the Big Misunderstanding, this time being detailed for the reader rather than as backstory. I was rather concerned that this plot device would run through the whole book but fortunately Lucas discovers the truth when, most fortuitously, he happens to be listening at a peephole to his enemies discussing their future plans and they just happen to talk about the events a year ago and lay the whole truth out for Lucas's greedy ears. How convenient, but unfortunately for this reader it felt like an incredibly lazy author's plot device which wasn't believable. But of course it didn't completely solve the Big Misunderstanding as although Lucas now knows he was mistaken he has very much hurt Katerina and he has to ask her for forgiveness. Sadly it appears that, for Lucas, apologising is about as easy as trying to nail jelly to the ceiling.
