This was a solid book with good developed characters and a plot that kept the stakes high I liked the hero and heroine and believed in the development of their relationship under the extraordinary circumstancesIsobel Dalceann is a Scottish Chieftainess who is trapped in a war with King David Her dangerously unbalanced father chose to defy the king and therefore condemned her people as dissenters and outlaws Then her father died leaving her stuck with the king s wrath and the promise of certain death for her people if she tried to surrender She s already fought off two siege attempts and knows it s only a matter of time before the king sends a large enough force to crush themWhen the story opens she and two of her loyal men spy some shipwrecked people drowning in the cold ocean and swim out to save who they can Isobel rescues a man she s immediately drawn to There s suspicion and animosity between her men and the few survivors as they fear the possibility of the king s spies and when the man she desires gives what she s sure is a false name Isobel knows there s to him than he s letting on Still against all sense and the expressed wishes of her men she continues to protect him even swearing a blood oath of loyalty and protection to keep him safe During his feverish nights the man reveals his true name is Marc and that he is a king s man Tensions run high and she barely manages to nurse him back to health and send him on his way before her men s anger boils over On his last night there Marc and Isobel talk She reveals that she suspects he s a threat and she should have let her men kill him long ago When he asks why she hasn t she kisses him He s affected by her but won t take what she s offering when there is so much dishonesty between them He also doesn t want to risk leaving her pregnant with her future so uncertain and dangerousIt turns out that Marc is not just A king s man but essentially THE king s man He s the most famous and successful commander in the king s employ and has never met a battle he couldn t win Shortly after his arrival back in Edinburgh Marc is assigned the job of returning to crush Isobel and her rebellious people This leaves Marc in a dangerous position He wants to protect her but can t reveal his intention when her people in general and she in particular are so hated among the court Isobel is referred to as a witch and wild stories circulate about her making deals with the devil and casting spells on unsuspecting menNaturally when Isobel sees Marc at the head of the conuering force that has killed her men she s outraged at his apparent treachery The rest of the story is a dangerous game of cat and mouse Marc has to walk a fine line to keep both her and himself safe and all while she s spitting mad at him Their relationship deepens along the way and they eventually become lovers and then fall in loveI thought the story progressed well for the most part The tightrope Marc and Isobel had to walk served to keep the tension high throughout the book which was good Isobel was a good strong heroine and for the most part kept her head and behaved appropriately for the situation There were a few times when I felt that she went a little nuts though For example when they were traveling to see the king and Marc tried to explain what it would be like in court the next day and give her advice on how to behave She hauled off and slapped him for no discernible reason demanding to know if last night had meant nothing to him Considering that he was doing everything he could to keep her alive I didn t see the justification for her outburst Isobel likewise made a scene at court and didn t even consider the possible ramifications until Marc angrily pointed it out to her later Considering that everywhere else in the book she d shown herself to be strong and smart and the author had made a point of saying it was Isobel s keen mind for strategy that had helped her people fight off the first two attacks by the king I found it pretty hard to believe that she d be so incredibly stupid as to not realize her actions would have conseuencesThe resolution at the end was a bit of a let down After spending the whole book explaining how there was just no way Isobel and Marc could ever be together the solution was very Dues Ex Machina and dependent on both pure luck and other people in the story behaving in unbelievably stupid ways But overall it was a good story with likable charactersPS I highly recommend getting the audiobook version of this story The narrator Cathleen McCarron did an excellent job with both the Scottish and French accents and it really made the story come alive
