I liked Ian's Rose better than this one. This one has more personal trauma I guess, plus murder mystery.
I did like both the H/h a lot, they were strong and caring. My heart really went out to our h because she only knew pain, and her husband refused to love her.
Foreplay is described very mildly, and the actual act is more talked about after the fact. Granted they make love a lot, and says how much each pleases the other, but not described at all.
There were many twists and surprises that I was shocked and didn't see coming. This story also contains a lot of humor but also sadness. You will use a lot of emotions reading this. We do get HEA, no cliffhanger, romance that builds very slowly, but it is there.
I would recommend this whole series, and need to wait to the last book of this series, which I have already pre-ordered. (ljb)
Alec, never wanted a wife at all. His past has brought him to that decision. He never wanted to be Clan Chief and now he is. He finds himself agreeing to an alliance marriage with the Mackintosh/MacLaren Clan. Any woman at this point will do for Alec, the key will be who will want to willing be a Bowie. His clan has had a terrible reputation. All he needs is to wed her, bed her and obtain an heir...then he can be left alone.
Leona MacDowall has been the woman her clan has always talked about... up until she became the Laird's wife's friend and it was discovered she was also her cousin. Prior to that she was called "Odd Eyes" and some gossipped she was a witch and a bit strange in the head. As she listens to her Laird's request for a lass to voluntarily wed The Bowie...she makes a decision that hopefully will change her life for possibly a wee bit better than the one she has had. She remembers Alec, he kept his word in helping her before.
These two have difficult past. Pasts that have made them the way they are. This is a new journey for both of them...that is hard enough, but add evil that lurks around and you are in for one heck of a ride.
There was humor, suspense, intrigue and love. I look forward to reading Brogan's Promise soon.
Great job Ms. Tisdale!
The only negatives are some of the grammar, and the writing style was sometimes hard to follow, given the way the characters saying things like "nothin" and "runnin" and while I get that she was trying to emulate the Scottish brogue, sometimes I had to go back and re-read some of the dialog.
I was also surprised that even after they got together, Alec referred to Leona's "odd eyes." I think I would not be happy if there were something about my appearance that bothered me and my husband referred to it in a negative way. After he told her that her eyes intrigued him, I thought he was put a stop to anyone calling her "odd eyes."
And finally, I kind of wish that there was some closure between Leona and her father. I'm still not clear why her father hated her so much, outside of the mismatched eyes and her not being a boy, but that was some heavy hatred.
I am excited for the third book in the series. I think I will probably try and re-read the first two before the new one comes out, though. The characters are from some earlier books were part of the story, and I couldn't for the life of me remember Frederick and Aggie.
