Synopsis from Goodreads:

Highland warrior Blane Sutherland has one mission: disguise himself as an Englishman, cross the border and retrieve Lady Aliah de Mowbray. Always up for a challenge, he agrees, pursuing his conquest with vigor—and trying to deny the powerful desire that eclipses him each time he touches his charge. A rogue of the highest order and a younger son, he has nothing to offer a lady but a broken heart.

Aliah is skeptical of the English noble who has come to take her to her father and sister in Scotland, but she pushes her doubts aside. Without word in months, she must make certain her family is safe, then she can return to England to join the convent to which she has sworn to pledge her life. But then her escort reveals his true self—he's a Highlander and his kisses are more seductive than the sweetest of wines. Surrender never tasted so sweet . . .

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This is one of those stories where you can guess the ending right from the beginning, but, as they say, the story is all in the journey, and what a journey this was. Knight takes her audience on a suspenseful, captivating journey that sparks your imagination. She combines the heat of forbidden romance with the possibility of many things while remaining firmly placed within the time period in question. This story also had me laughing out loud many times. Things would strike me as so real and possible and ridiculously like something that would happen to me and I couldn’t help myself.

This story was even more captivating and entertaining than the 1st novel in the series and I can’t wait to see what happens next and who the 3rd brother ends up with. It could be read as a standalone or as part of the series and I’d definitely recommend it to one and all (provided you enjoy historical romance, that is).
