All that stands between him and freedom? Turning her hatred to love.

Elizabeth Innes has a tongue too sharp for her own good, and she is never more ready to employ it than when faced with the MacKinnons. With just one piece of evidence connecting their clan to a near-deadly attack, she is determined to prove the laird guilty and see him brought to justice. So, when chance throws her in the company of one of the MacKinnon men, she resolves to take advantage of the opportunity to glean more information.

Malcolm MacKinnon has long lived under the thumb of his cousin and laird, Angus, who keeps a secret with the power to ruin him. With his mother and siblings entirely dependent upon Angus’s capricious generosity, he cannot afford to offend his cousin. When Angus proposes a way for him to finally be free of his shackles, Malcolm is more than ready to oblige. All he must do is help Angus seek revenge upon the rival, neighboring clan. The way to do it? Gain the trust—and love—of one of their young women.

As Malcolm and Elizabeth pursue their goals, they find their tasks much more difficult than anticipated, with challenges to their loyalties at every turn. Both must decide how far they are willing to go for revenge—and love.

Rating: Mild. Mild substance use; mild kissing; mild (nonsexual) violence or horror.

    The books in this series are well written. If you are looking for some fluff romance this is not it. The story is intense, the bad guy is truly evil and the reader is left to wonder how this can ever resolve. Since I’m mostly a fluff reader, I had to take a break half way through. It was just too intense for me. Yes, I’m a wimp. This hero is unique since one would have to consider him one of the bad guys and yet I sympathized with him and wanted him to win the day. I just didn’t see how it was going to come about. He didn’t see how either. And he isn’t truly as bad as he appears anyway. Makes him easier to love. Miss Innes is a spitfire and it is amazing that she doesn’t get into more trouble than she does. And the sweet dog…. He may win favorite character.
