This is a wonderful book with all the emotions you would want in a Scottish historical romance with hate, guilt, passion, conflict, mystery, betrayal, mistaken identity, kidnapping, suspense and even a paranormal element and of course eventually everlasting love. It was fun to read how these two enemies come together and of course very romantic to the core. Patricia Potter is a wonderful author and one I have enjoyed for many years. I look forward in continuing to read this fabulous trilogy. I highly recommend fantastic read!
