He was a perfect combination of brooding, charming, loyal, and protective and had a sense of humor. He was sexy and I just couldn't get enough of him.
Keeley was such a great character. She was fierce and strong. Protective and loyal and would literally stand in front of a bullet (in this case arrow) for anyone she loves.
I loved the interactions between Keeley and Alaric and despite their circumstances they tried to keep away and do the honorable thing but their love for each other was to powerful.
Their story had me smiling and laughing and then in tears. My emotions were all over and I am definitely looking forward to the next book to see what happens with the ever brooding Caelen. It will be interesting to see.
Keeley is a fighter and her fierce loyalty to her new clan the McCabe's inspires such fierce loyalty throughout they clan that others become just as fierce and brave to protect and rescue her in her battle at deaths door.
I will tell you when Alaric carries Keeley out of the Keep to the loch to demand Caelen kisses her good bye....my heart nearly broke as the once fiercely callous warrior paid her such reverence!
I am addicted now...first novel was Mairin taking the gruff and grumpy Ewan, laird of McCabe keep and now Alaric and Keeley. can't wait to read Riahonna and Caelen's story next.
Keeley and Alaric fall in love while she nurses him back to health after he shows up on her doorstep, barely concious and bleeding to death. Alaric had long envied the loving relationship his elder brother Ewan has with his wife, Mairin (see book one of the McCabe Trilogy, In Bed With a Highlander), so it is all the more wrenching when he finds a similar love with Keeley, knowing she cannot be his lady. Alaric can't marry Keeley because he's already betrothed to Rionna McDonald, the daughter of a neighboring laird, and their eventual marriage is the key to an alliance that is critical not only for the interests of the McCabe and McDonald clans, but also to peace in the highlands, because the two clans need to be united to stand against the villainous Duncan Cameron as he plots to overthrow the king.
The emotional torment on Keeley's side of the relationship ratchets up because Rionna is her cousin and best friend from childhood, and Keeley would not betray her (though Rionna has betrayed Keeley, by standing complicit when Rionna's parents banished Keeley from the McDonald clan years ago).
In light of these circumstances, the lovers try to resist temptation (Keeley tries harder than Alaric, it must be said), but their attraction is so powerful, it can't be denied though no good can possibly come of it.
As with In Bed With a Highlander, Maya Banks makes only the barest efforts toward historical realism--(or actually, realism in general: For example, Keeley delivers Mairin's baby in about three pushes, and there's no afterbirth to interrupt the post-labor celebration)--so if historical inaccuracies drive you batty, this book isn't for you. If all you care about is a good story, and maybe even a good cry, read on!
