Love is the truest of all treasures…
Beautiful and skilled, Verena is the perfect temptress for
hire—and the ruthless English Lord Gundy knows it. When
she’s sent to seduce Cairn McPherson—Gundy’s enemy and
key to a fabled Scottish treasure—Verena never expects her
prey to be such a brave, honorable man. And she never expects
to have to choose between her family of spies and the
one man who could win her love.
Nearly destitute, Cairn is set on raising his once-thriving
clan from the ashes. His final hope is the lost McPherson
treasure, rumored to be hidden somewhere in his dead father’s
castle. Though she has nursed him back to health, can
he really trust Verena to stand loyally by his side—or is there
a treachery in her heart that could destroy the McPhersons
once and for all?
I am a sucker for historical romances with Lord's, knights, treachery and romance. This story didn't disappoint, sexy as hell Cairn McPherson stole the show with his good looks, protective instincts and honor. He takes care of his clan whether he wanted the job to lead or not, he is brave and a hero (swoon). Verena is a beautiful, fisty, smart as a whip women who just wants a home and family, although she won't admit that to anyone, she's a master with a knife too . What a perfect match these too are. Great cast of characters and story, it has intrigue, mystery and love -- this book has it all. 4 stars
