Phillipe, the son of the King of Antioch, arranged for Phillipe to marry the Queen of Cilesia. He became a popular king nearly immediately, but political animals sought to end his reign. Near tragedy followed, and he realized he'd been tossed into a pit with very hungry snakes. After managing to escape the vast dungeons of Sis Castle, having lost everything he'd once valued, Phillipe departs the Holy Lands and makes his way to Scotland, meeting a man known as Balgair, and who became a close and trusted ally and friend.
Maggie MacLaren survived what became a loveless marriage that eventually threatened both her freedom and a near loss of life--all because she'd been pronounced infertile. In addition to the disgrace her abusive husband left her with, he declined to return her dowry in return for the title of a tiny, likely worthless isle in the Hebrides. How does a strong, independent woman deal with the accusations made by the Earl of Mar? She returns to her beloved Highlands of Scotland and her family. Trouble arises and Maggie determines to travel to her isle to make a life for herself. Hold onto your hats. What ensues will take your breath away.
This isn't my first look at the book--nor even the second. I am one of the critique partners mentioned in the book's acknowledgements. In addition to all my suggestions and corrections, I offered praise to Cathy for the excellent writing and storytelling. I have quite a few favorites among her books, but this is the best one yet. I repeat--don't miss this book.
A former Prince, giving up his past and a woman shunned, embark on an adventure that would change their lives forever. He was wrongfully imprisoned and barely escapes with his life. Once free he must sell his sword to survive and vows to never look back.
Maggie was tossed aside, returned to her family because the man she was forced to marry blamed her for not giving him an heir. But once she arrives home, she feels unwanted there as well so she's determined to take the one thing she had left in life and make her own future. With the separation from her husband, he gifts her with an island and she is determined to go to that island and build a small cottage where she could live the rest of her life alone. Thankfully, fate brought her and the Prince together and the friendship blended into something much more. I think this was a story of bonding, healing, and a HEA kind of love.
The original storyline and the in depth characters are what makes this story great.

Accusing her of being barren never blaming himself of course as it is always the woman’s fault according to the Earl of Mar and his nasty mother!

Will Maggie open her heart and trust this man plus will they even survive as danger is on their tail. Can Phillipe open his heart again when he had nearly been killed by previous decisions and manipulations??Read and find out what the conclusion will be.
This is the sixth book A fast paced, page turning, riveting, romantic, adventure, filled with murder, raiding, mystery, treachery, attempted abduction, deception suspense, betrayal, faith, joy and love. all the elements Scottish historical readers enjoy. Another breathtaking setting with a captivating dialogue and multi dimensional characters. Yet the plotting just blew me away! Fans of the Hardy Heroine series will recognize appearances from favorite characters from this series too. A bit of a character reunion which is always heartwarming to see!
