Caught between two kings vying for sovereignty of the Isles and Western Scotland, Hanna of Hällstein has lost everything—and vows to repay the Scots for the deaths of her husband and children. Fleeing the smoldering ruins of her village, Hanna crosses the Strait of Mull and chooses the Laird of Clan MacLean as the object of her revenge.
Alex MacLean has buried a wife and three children. Ignoring the clamors for him to wed again and produce an heir, he finds himself drawn to a Norse refugee who defies him and tests the limits of his patience—and his power as Laird.
Torn between revenge and honor, Hanna fears setting aside her vow of vengeance means she has lost her reason for living. Alex is determined to save her, even if it means defying the king.
Do you like a bit of history with your romance? In the 13th century, the king of Scotland had little control in the Western Highlands and in the isles to the north and west. A rich culture of Gaelic and Norn existed here, and power lay in the hands of the chiefs. Much of Western Scotland and the Isles gave their allegiance to the king of Norway.
In 1249, King Alexander II prepared to invade the Hebrides and Western Scotland. After 5 years of failed negotiations with Norway to purchase these areas, King Alexander broke his association with King Haakon and set out to take the Isles and Western territories by force.
In the years to come, two kings would perish during this battle for sovereignty—along with many people given the choice to change their alliance to the Scottish king . . .
This is a well written tale of two very different people who meet under circumstances not of their making.
Hanna has chosen Alex MacLean to exact her revenge upon after loosing her family to a Scottish invasion.
Alex has also lost family. His people clamor for him to wed again, but he doesn't want to until he finds himself drawn to a Norse refugee.
Hanna defies him at every turn and constantly tests his limits.
Will she be able to carry out her plan for vengeance or will her growing love for the Laird and his one remaining daughter make her decide against it?
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames.
This couple is drawn to each other but there isn't but one physical encounter that raises the heat level.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publicist to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
