Sean Gunn is one of the Guardsmen of Laird Gunn. He is summoned by his estranged Uncle. There he is to be the new Laird and he is to marry his uncle's ward, Frances.
Frances has been at court for six months. While there someone has been stocking her and tormenting her with vile notes and morbid gifts. She is returning home, for her guardian is dying. When she returns she finds out he has betrothed her to his nephew. She will do her duty, but danger follows and lassies have been going missing.
Will Sean be able to fulfill his duty to his uncle in these treacherous times and be able to, not only protect his clan, but also be a good husband if her marries?
Pick this up, it is a wonderful story.
Frances is a widow and in service to the queen, but she longs to return to her home and her young daughter. The queen is thinking about trying to arrange a match for Frances when word is received that Frances's uncle is dying. The man the queen had been considering for Frances was one Frances didn't care for and the heroine was glad to be leaving.
Upon her return home the heroine finds her uncle is truly dying but he has made arrangements for her protection -- she is to marry his nephew as soon as possible.
The hero and the uncle hadn't spoken in years. The uncle had cast off the hero's mother when she married a man the uncle hadn't approved of. If the hero marries the heroine, he will inherit the uncle's holdings. The heroine is handsome enough and he would gain much in marrying her.
She finds him quite handsome and feels she isn't all that attractive. They marry and find they are very compatible in and out of the bedroom. The problem is that the heroine has been receiving disgusting gifts and letters for some time. And young women have been abducted and killed.
The mystery is who is doing the evil deeds and how far will they go? The couple gets along famously so no big arc in the story along that line.
The book moved too slow for my taste. But I will say it wonderful to read a book that wasn't filled with dialogue written in Scottish accents. I didn't have to read sentences over and over to decipher what was being said. -- so thank you K Griffin for that! I will give her writing another try.
