You must read this spectacular novel and find out. Another fast paced page turner that readers won't be able to put down. I have read this entire series and each book has been absolutely brilliant.I recommend you read them all. You can also read Sorcha as a stand alone books as it is the 8th book in the series. I think Sorcha is now my favorite. I absolutley loved this action packed heart pulling romance. It has so many twists and turns that you might need to catch your breath!
As Ms. Montclair does it again and writes another magnificent novel, that Scottish romance readers will absolutely love!
