The only other man who has held as much, if not more, sway over Fia's outlook on life is Thomas Donne. She worshipped him from afar as a child, right up until she overheard a vicious and unfortunate conversation in which Donne expressed his loathing of Fia as "Carr's whore." But, whether she likes it or not, Thomas is back in her life.
Thomas McClairen, youngest and only surviving heir of the McClairen laird betrayed by Carr, has been infiltrating the Merrick camp for years under the name of Thomas Donne. When Carr deserts Wanton's Blush for greener pastures, Thomas obtains the property and begins to restore Maiden's Blush to her former glory. But all his plans will be for naught if the one woman he has never been able to forget, Fia Merrick, succeeds in her plans to corrupt his business partner. He does the only thing he thinks he can in the circumstances: he kidnaps Fia and takes her to McClairen's Isle to foil her schemes and save his partner. Little did he know that he would fall under her spell and become more captive than captor...
The ending of this trilogy is nothing short of magnificent. All the loose ends are tied up, and Carr gets his due in a most unusual plot twist.Read more ›
Important backstory for this last in the trilogy:
The three books tell the stories of two brothers and a sister, Scottish by their mother, Janet McClairen, and English by their father, the charming, selfish, ruthless Ronald Merrick, now earl of Carr. Many years ago, Merrick fled his debtors in London to come to McClairen's Isle in the Highlands. He came to woo the clan, and gain the Isle, but ended up winning the laird's cousin, Janet. She gave him two sons and a daughter and then mysteriously died falling off a cliff. Later, Merrick gained McClairen's Isle as his own, as well as the title of earl of Carr, by betraying the clan to help the English at Culloden. But his first wife's relatives who survived wanted revenge. Though they wanted to capture Lord Carr, they captured only his sons. The Scots didn't want to kill them (they were Janet's sons and half Scottish), so they were sent off to prison in France. Ash, the oldest son, was freed when his father paid the ransom, but Raine was left there to rot because he looked like his mother and Carr couldn't bear to look at him. Raine was finally freed as a result of a young McClairen woman's help--the same woman who saved his life years earlier. Carr never had much time for his half Scottish sons though he carefully groomed his daughter, Fia, with the idea to marry her off to the suitor who would do Carr the most good.Read more ›
