From the Back Cover

When a Chattan male falls in love, strike his heart with fire from above . . .

Portia Maclean believes she is beyond love and marriage. Then one moonlit night, while attempting a daring masquerade in a desperate bid to protect her family, she finds herself swept off her feet by a powerful stranger. But what will he do once he discovers she has betrayed him?

Harry Chattan is fighting for his family. For two hundred years the Chattan men have been destroyed by love . . . and now he's come to Scotland on the hunt for a witch to break the curse. Instead he finds himself bewitched by Portia. Harry has vowed to fight the demons that torture him.

But will that battle destroy her as well?

I liked the idea of this book, I really did but was very annoyed about it being part of a trilogy. This is very definitely a 'middle' book and I felt deprived by the ending. I don't think you needed to read part one as I didn't feel like I missed anything. However after reading most of the book, I soon realised that I wasn't going to 'know' the ending unless I read the 3rd book. Up until about 3/4 of the way through I was enjoying the plot and character development but the ending was wrapped up too quickly and then an unsatisfying 'cliffhanger' of an ending. I thought the H and h were likable and strong. I thought their story was credible and I could even accept their love affair outside of marriage because I thought it was going to cancel out the curse. All of a sudden towards the end, they just arrive at the conclusion (with no real back up) that they won't be ending the curse.

I suppose if you wait for book 3 to come out, then you can buy book 2 & 3 together and read it without the annoying wait.

I like Ms. Maxwell's writing, but was disappointed and, yes, annoyed to find after reading the book that I didn't get an ending. I have to read the next book, which has not yet been published. If a book is a serial, I think that information should be prominently displayed to potential readers so that they can decide beforehand whether or not they want to read a particular book. Although I have read and enjoyed serials in the past, I only read them if all volumes are available or if the book stands on its own.

As far as this particular story, the writing was good although there were a couple grammatical errors (nothing major or off-putting) in the text. I personally would term this book a fantasy in that I don't believe in curses and cats appearing from nowhere, but I can enjoy a good "Cinderella" story that leaves me feeling "warm and fuzzy." The problem here is that I read over 300 pages, and at the end I walked away disappointed and feeling cheated because I had no clue that the book would not have a resolution at the end.

Harry Chattan knows he must accomplish two things: find the witch that cursed his family and never fall in love. Both are proving to be a challenge even beyond his diverse military expertise as the witch eludes him and a woman is haunting his dreams. When Harry meets Portia she claims to have the "cure" for this terrible plague that has haunted his family, and nothing will stop him from getting it. The problem it turns out is she is not a witch but a woman in possession of a "recipe book" for cooking up something that is not bread. Portia is trying to keep many lives together as she helps her mother and sister manage from the disaster her rogue father created and she is willing to sell what she knows to stay afloat.

While Harry and Portia search for an answer to his dilemma, they find the hardest part is staying out of each other's arms. The last thing either is looking for is a relationship, but is that what they have or just a clandestine affair? Harry knows his family is suffering and his search for answers continues even with the wicked witch he seeks one step ahead of him. There are times when the worries of his life are at rest but only when he is with Portia and this scares him for their future looks so dark. Harry cannot stay away from Portia, as she appears to be the warmth his heart has needed for too many years. Always running is a great idea but when you stop you have to hope someone will be there waiting for you with a kiss good night.

Love apparently is in the air everywhere in Scotland. This book also follows the romance between two young lovers as well as two mature adults who rediscover the magic of capturing the moment.

Every Cathy Maxwell book is a delight to readers as she provides the glory that is love along a bumpy road. Ms. Maxwell takes you on a journey to discover not only why the characters act a certain why but why. No detail is every left out as every one of them is vital to the story.

I hate books that leave you hanging until the authors New book is written months later. I was enjoying the book very much until it ended with no idea how it was to finish. It was an unpleasant shock...

The course of true love never did run smooth - A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 1, Scene 2

Cathy Maxwell's THE SCOTTISH WITCH is Book Two in the Chattan Curse series. The series focuses on a 17th century curse cast by a Scottish witch, Finella, on the Chattan family,

When a Chattan male falls in love,
strike his heart with fire from Above.

Book 1, LYON'S BRIDE, introduces us to the Chattan Family in the Regency Era - Neal, Harry, and Margaret. Neal, Lord Lyon, wants children, so he seeks a bride he cannot love. He falls in love with his matchmaker and falls ill from the curse. Inspired by his brother's love, Harry sets out to save his brother in Book 2, THE SCOTTISH WITCH.

Hear my soul speak. Of the very instant that I saw you, Did my heart fly at your service - The Tempest, Act 3, Scene 1

Maxwell provides readers new to the series with another prologue (different from LYON'S BRIDE) to join Harry in his desperate mission. He travels to Scotland to search for a witch to reverse the curse, leading him to Portia Maclean. Like Harry, Portia has Scottish blood but lived in England. Like Harry, she came to Scotland to save her family. Like Harry, she feels romantic love has no room in her heart. When they first meet, with Portia in disguise as a witch, they feel a mutual bond. In their second meeting, at the Christmas assembly, they feel a mutual attraction. As they engage in a passionate affair, they inadvertently open their hearts to the other ... but also to the curse. They feel Finella's wrath surrounding them .... but they find an unexpected ally.
