The Murrays are back in this thrilling new tale from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell . . .
Responsible for protecting her younger siblings from their abusive father, Bethoc Matheson is in no position to rescue another soul in Scotland. Yet when she sees a bleeding man on the verge of drowning, that’s exactly what she does, securing him safely in a cave where she can return day after day to tend to his wounds.
Sir Callum MacMillan can scarcely believe such a slight lass as Bethoc could save him from the grasp of death. But he knows the telltale marks of an angry fist on her skin, and he knows she has the soul of a fighter within her feminine frame. Raised to be a protector of the weak by his Murray clansman, Callum would prefer to be the one saving her—and save her, he will. If he can first survive the treacherous attack that led him into her irresistible arms . . .
Praise for Hannah Howell and her Highland novels…
“Few authors portray the Scottish highlands as lovingly or colorfully as Hannah Howell.” —Publishers Weekly“Expert storyteller Howell pens another Highland winner.” —RT Book Reviews
First let me start if by saying that I just love Hannah's novels and she is on my auto buy list regardless what stories she writes.I have been reading her novels for at least 25 years or more now and will continue reading her works as long as she is writing stories.
As always I enjoy reading about all those hunky highlanders.I have followed and read all about that delightful Murray family so any hint of them being in any current novel I am in.
This was a delightful read.I just love all the good characters.I thought that the two main characters Bethoc and the Laird had a great chemistry together.The plot of this story is not very involved with a lot of twists and turns but has enough going on to keep your interest.I love a novel when they have a tortured hero but in this story each main character can really relate to each other as they share a similar past.
I always have a favorite character to favor and in this story I would have to choose Bethoc. Why ? She just is an amazing person on the inside as well as out. With Bethoc growing up in an abusive household it would have you thinking that she would have been a hardened distant cold person but she was just the complete opposite. Bethoc had a big loving heart and a wealth of understanding for those all around her.I just love reading about her especially when she was giving herself a pep talk every time she starts to feel sorry for herself had me laughing out loud.
Bethoc was the perfect person to heal the heart of her wounded warrior.She was like sunshine to his darkness.Meeting Laird MacMillain was the best thing for both of these characters.It felt like fate stepped in to bring each of them into each other's lives for a very specific purpose.
If your looking for an enjoyable light read this story is for you.The story has two plots that need solving.It could be that we will be seeing one of these characters in a future book as there is a question to whether her talent lies along those lines of those in the Murray clan or has just been born with a precious gift.
I look forward to the next novels in this series.I just love reading books in series and following characters book to book especially when new characters are introduced.The Murray Family have been a blast to read about including there friends and family.
I found all the characters in this story to be enjoyable as well as like-able.My heart strings tugged for both the main characters as well as the other characters as they all had a sadness to them as well as pain and suffering . I loved the unfolding of the story as plots that were solved and the secrets that came to light.I loved seeing this couple slowly fall in love even if some of them didn't even realize they had fallen in love at all and that love healed a very emotionally wounded warriors heart.
