Format: Mass Market Paperback
THE DEVIL'S HEART is a delightful conclusion to the Chattan Curse trilogy, and while it can be read as a stand-alone, it's much better to read the trilogy in whole as there are recurring characters. I rarely read historical romance with fantasy elements, but the Chattan curse is rather interesting, and the characters are more than they seem.

As Lyon and Harry Chattan fall prey to the Chattan curse when they fell in love in the first two books, Lady Margaret Chattan is on a trip to Fenella's home in Scotland to put an end to the curse before her brothers die. During her journey, she is beset by ravaging storms and unpredictable events, one of which put her in a coma, to be found by Heath Macnachtan, the last of the Machnactan line, descendants of Fenella who cursed the Chattans. As he falls prey to Margaret's beauty, they must work together to solve the mystery of the curse before it's too late.

The book's pacing is slow at first, to finally pick up speed about half-way in the story. I didn't like the impetuousness of Margaret's character at first, when she just up and shot Heath in a moment of panic. Furthermore, Heath continued to help this beauty despite not believing in the curse, falling prey to physical attributes. Thankfully though, the characters are shown to have more depth as the story develops, and they are presented more than just the Unattainable (title bestowed upon Margaret by her admirers) and Laird of one of the poorest clans in Scotland.

Margaret hides a scandal in her past under a glacial mask of aloofness, never letting anyone get close to see her vulnerability, and stopped believing in love.

Lady Margaret Chattan is on a mission, traveling to Scotland and accompanied by her new abigail, Smith who keeps looking at her strangely, but it might be because Smith thinks Margaret is a little crazy. Margaret is on her way to see if she can break the Chattan curse and save her brothers before they die. The curse was put on the Chattan's two hundred years ago by a vengeful witch and has caused panic and death for years as every Chattan male that falls in love, dies. Margaret's brother Harry believes she is the key to breaking the curse as she is the first female born since the curse was cast.

Society thought Margaret was perfect and both the men and women of the ton either wanted her or wanted to be her. She rarely went out however instead of people thinking it was strange, they just thought it was another thing to love about her, she was mysterious. She on the other hand does not feel worthy of anyone, as she has a secret that not even her brother's Neal and Harry are aware of.

Margaret found a kitten when she was ready to leave on her trip, a strange little creature with big eyes and flatten ears, she calls it Owl. However no one else in her traveling party can see the cat, Smith thinks she is unwell and when Margaret questions the others in the party to see if they see the cat, they all look away. So she leaves the "cat" by the side of the road and they travel on. About a mile out of their destination the weather turns and the wind pulls them off the road and down the hill where all but two perish.

Heath Macnachtan is the 16th chief of Macnachtan, a raggedy clan that is almost bankrupt. They are in danger of losing their home, Marybone.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
THE DEVIL'S HEART by Cathy Maxwell is an exciting Scottish Historical Romance with magical elements set in 1814 Scotland. #3 and final installment in "The Chattan Curse",but can be read as a stand alone. See,"Lyon's Bride",and "The Scottish Witch". What a wonderful conclusion for the English Chattan family and the Macnachtan Clan. Follow, Lady Margret Chattan,the most "Unattainable" lady in England Society,whose plaqued by the "Chattan Curse",her brothers Lyon, and Neil are dying due to this centuries old curse. Margret sets off to the Scottish Highlands to break the curse,and save her beloved brothers but what she finds is the power of love. Heath Macnachtan,the Macnachtan clan's Laird,a poor clan burdened with debt and determined to find is older brother's murderer,what he finds is the beautiful Lady Margret. They are bitter enemies,if you have not read any of this amazing trilogy,than I don't want to give any seek peeks,but let me say the curse effects both families,the Chattan and the Macnachtan clan. Fast paced,filled with danger,magic,passion,betrayal,and love. You will not be disappointed in the "The Devil's Heart" with a bit of magic and the power of love,an evil witch must be defeated in order to save both the first female Chattan, and the last Macnachtan. A powerful story of love,forgiveness,healing,and family. With a bit of humor at times, I found myself smiling at times. If you have read the other two in this amazing trilogy, I would highly recommend all three in this powerful trilogy. You will not be disappointed. Ms. Maxwell is a wonderful storyteller,with powerful plots,who characters are realistic,memorable and engaging. A must read for anyone who enjoys Scotland,historical romance,England,folklore,and a great read. I read it in one setting. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

RATING: 4.5

HEAT RATING: MILD
