How does a woman tell her betrothed that she murdered her first husband? Shipwrecked in the Scottish Highlands, American heiress Elise Kingston quietly plans revenge for the deaths of her daughter and the brother who sacrificed his life to save her. When Marcus MacGregor, Marquess of Ashlund, returns to his Highland home to discover a stunning American woman has been taken in by his clan, his attraction is instant and he resolves to make her his--no matter what secret she's keeping. Elise is shocked by her need for Marcus and, too late, discovers that her feelings make him a target of her enemy--a man powerful enough to destroy even a Scottish nobleman.
Love Highland Stories, this one was very sweet, romantic, sad but happy all in one. Elise was married to a nightmare of a man that killed her daughter and also her brother who tried to protect her. Elise tried to protect her brother and happened to kill her husband in return. She doesn't regret her actions but will always look over her shoulder. She ends up in the Scottish highlands where she runs into Marcus a sexy as sin, muscled highlander that has his sites on her. I loved Marcus's character. Marcus can't believe this American beauty in front of him, he can't help but want her. These two characters I couldn't help but root for their happiness but the twists and turns, the kidnappings, the lies and the truths all make this story amazing. Great story that I highly recommend.4.5 stars
