I absolutely loved this story. It was quite simply....sweet. It was a lot of fun to read too. An easy, uncomplicated, enjoyable romance. Oh..it's not to say these two characters (Laird Graeme Montgomery and Lady Eveline Armstrong) didn't have their problems. (what fun would a story be without a bit of drama?)

Laird Graeme Montgomery; intelligent and wise - - strong and patient. He's forced into a marriage by the King of Scotland...to a woman from the Armstrong Clan. A Clan he and his Clan have been warring with for over five decades. They're bitter, sworn enemies, yet to disobey the King's edict would mean treason. Laird Graeme becomes loyally devoted to his new Lady Wife even though she comes from an enemy clan. Afterall (he reasons)..it's not her fault that her family are no good murderers. She fascinates and intrigues him!

Lady Eveline Armstrong...beautiful, kind-hearted, innocent- - she's an angel in disguise. She's everything good. And she pretends to be mute. She holds a secret that even her own family is unaware of. She becomes the salvation of both warring Clans.

This is not only a story of a sweet romance - - it is a wonderful story of purging extreme prejudices and hatred. It's a story of examining one's priorities and realizing what matters more than revenge.

DOWNSIDE: The few downsides in this wonderful story was #1...no mention of Clan "colors". There was no mention of plaids or tartans which were highly regarded during this era of Scotland. It was just strange to read about these two noble, proud and high profile Scottish Clans who unite through marriage, and not one mention of their Clan Colors. Nor #2 no wearing of Kilts. And #3.. there was never mention of the ages of our two main characters. Not even a tiny hint! It's a guessing game.

When Graeme Montgomery receives word from the king that he is to marry the daughter of the clan that murdered his father, he is furious. How could the king ask this of him? Especially as the girl is rumored to be daft and unable to have a normal marriage. With the prospect of passing on his heritage through his own blood gone, he still reluctantly accepts his duty as to refuse would be treason and would end up in his death. Graeme gathers his two brothers and his men and heads off to his rival Armstrongs clan, prepared for the worst and willing to accept his duty. When he lays eyes on the lovely Eveline he is blown away by her beauty and also her easy acceptance of him. He makes a vow to himself that he will protect her at all costs but is stunned when his clam refuses to accept her and treats her badly. How can he help his clan understand that they can not punish the daughter for the sins of the father when in his own mind he still wants to destroy the Armstongs?

Eveline Armstrong is very secure and protected in her clan, especially after a terrible fall from a horse made her lose her hearing, though no one is aware of this. Circumstances prevented her from speaking as well and to protect herself, she let the charade of her being daft keep going. When she sees Graeme for the first time she actually feels his voice vibrations and she is instantly taken with him and knows he will protect her. But upon arriving at his home and experiencing the hatred and ridicule towards her, she is distraught and wants to leave even though her feelings for Graeme have deepened. The time comes when she must face her past and in the process, she just may lose more than her heart to the rival laird.

Sigh....such a romantic, sexy, heart warming, tear inducing story!! I loved it!

Maya Banks sure does it all. I'll admit I've read a bunch of her contemporaries but never delved into her historicals, I realized quickly I've been missing out.

I don't think the synopsis could be any more complete so I won't bore you with a play by play, let's just jump into what I thought :) The story was absolutely wonderful. I felt for Eveline so much that I got teary eyed on more than one occasion. Not only is she trying to be accepted by a clan of people that hate her only because of her parentage but she has to do it while balancing her allegiance to her own people. Choosing between love and family is a fairly common occurrence in historical romance but I don't think I've ever felt so personally involved with a character. Her determination to be accepted in the face of her disability was exceptionally heart warming. And let us not forget about the hero. *Sigh* Graeme is exactly what I look for in male leads. He's definitely an alpha but not a selfish one. The needs of his clan and those he holds closest come before himself. He's understanding, strong, and not to mention hotter than all get out. YES, he is the perfect romance hero ;)

My only complaint was that, at times, the book seemed a bit long winded. There were small descriptions of menial tasks, or conversations that didn't seem too important to the story that when lumped together added to the considerable length of the book. Although, this didn't necessarily make the story any less wonderful, I'm just not patient enough and found myself skimming a couple of times to get to the 'good' stuff.
