Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my favorite kind of romance novel; a book that sucks you in and you just can't put it down. I especially loved that the romance between these two was allowed to evolve into something deep and emotional, not just a lusty superficial attraction that so many romance authors try to pass off as 'a love story'. Now this was a true love story! I can see why this book is such a run-away hit. Rory is the ultimate alpha male, and the author does a great job at balancing his warrior persona by making him tough, raw and flawed, but not going overboard and turning him into some superhero or unrealistic savior type. There was everything in this fast pace book; deep intrigue, action and suspense, love and steamy sex scenes (I loved how Rory became playful in bed toward the end. Yum!), betrayal and risk,...etc. Bravo to this new author. I highly recommend this book to fans of romance.

this was the most frustrating book i have read in a long time...Rory and Isabella are deemed physically perfect beyond belief and while Rory has been given more depth of personality in the beginning of the book as the Chief of his clan, Isabella is about as vanilla as you can get...I wouldn't think this except that she cries and LIES on one breath to Rory and then tells him she loves him in the next...it is so redundant and drags on and on and on and on and on with the same LIES and issues that i got fed up half way through the book...love should be truthful and trust that the truth will set you free, how can she say she loves him and sleep with him with so many lies in her heart...don't bother with this book there are sooooo many other Highlander books that are better!!!!

This story has everything you want... A powerful hero, strong but loving female, great love scenes, exciting battle scenes, enthralling plot... you name it.

The MacLeod and MacDonald clans are in the midst of a brutal clan war. Seeking an end to the bloodshed, the king handfasts Isabel MacDonald to the MacLeod chief, Rory.

Rory already has plans to secure an alliance with another clan through marriage, but has no choice other than to follow the king's command for "a year and a day". He plans to spend the year ignoring Isabel. When the handfast time is up, he will send her home and marry the other woman.

Isabel is the perfect pawn for her uncle's treacherous plans. He uses threats to Isabel's brothers and father as a means of forcing her compliance. Isabel must use all means available, including giving Rory her virginity, to make Rory fall in love and share his clan's secrets with her. Uncle Sleat has two tasks that he demands of Isabel: Find a secret entry to the MacLeod castle, and steal the clan's "Fairy Flag" (A cloth said to have been given the clan by a fairy, it is believed the clan can never be beaten when caring it.)

When Rory and Isabel first meet, they are instantly attracted to each other. This is where the book had me skimming through page after page of "He's perfect", "She's perfect", descriptions of the hero and heroine... We get it... they both have perfect bodies and flawless faces. Too much time is also spent on Rory getting an erection every time she enters the room. This goes on throughout the book, but after the first few chapters it gets less frequent.

Over the course of the year, Rory and Isabel fall in love. Isabel must find a way to save her family without betraying Rory's clan.

As a mere woman, spirited Isabel MacDonald is constantly seeking ways of gaining the approval of her clan. So when her treacherous uncle, under the guise of peace, arranges for her a handfast marriage (probationary marriage that may be repudiated unlike a true marriage) to his sworn enemy, Isabel eagerly agrees. Her mission is to seduce the highland chief into revealing his fortresses secrets.

Rory MacLeod is bound by the order of the King to accept the handfast, but no more than the required year. For then he will return the lass to her family and continue his attempts of revenge against the MacDonald. Meanwhile he must avoid the periling beauty who reeks havoc on his mind, body and heart.

A great debut. It reminds me slightly of Kinley Macgregor's Master of Desire (a great book btw). You know these two are doomed from the beginning, Rory can't possibly resist Isabel for an entire year and Isabel can't help falling in love with the man and his clan. So they must find a way to be together permanently. There's revenge, lies, blackmail, sword fights and lots of love scenes. Very good characterization with writing and dialog that kept me turning the pages. Yes there are annoying points (like when after an attack Rory thinks Isabel never looked more beautiful -mind you that is not the case in the least), but those are relatively few. I also enjoyed the secondary characters and hope to see them in the sequels.

One interesting caveat is that some of the book is based on historical fact. The author's note at the end was very interesting. There are also various quotes scattered throughout the book pertaining to the chapters. I loved those.

So I really enjoyed this and recommend it.
