Lady Kristina MacQueen suffered devastating injuries at the hands of a ruthless Highland chief, Blackburn MacCromar. Two years later, he kidnaps her for a journey across the chilly, windblown Scottish Highlands to flush out her sister, Anna—the woman Blackburn forced to wed him. Red Holme, Blackburn's second-in-command, is equally brutal and determined to possess Kristina.
A Highland warrior and future chief, Colin Cameron has no intention of becoming entangled in the whims of another highborn lady. However, upon witnessing Lady Kristina being held hostage by the enemy, a knife to her throat, he resolves to rescue her and bring her to safety. When Red Holme sees Colin Cameron, he recognizes his enemy from a decade earlier and craves revenge even more than he lusts for the lady. But he is determined to have both.
Colin is the most charismatic and heroic man Kristina has ever met, and he awakens her woman's instincts. He might be her only chance to experience a brief moment of passion. Even so, she holds no illusions about marriage, for no worthy man will find her blindness and scars appealing, or see them as beneficial traits in a wife. But she can't see how he looks at her. Though Colin has sworn to never fall in love again, he cannot defend his heart against the strong, spirited and lovely lass who is like none other he has ever met.

What an amazing book! This was one heart wrenching story full of emotional angst, one breathless adventure full of intrigue and white knuckle suspense.
Kristina has suffered greatly at Blackburn’s hands, he forces her sister to marry him at knife point.....After threatening her and slashing her face he knocks her out which results in her blindness.
Two years in hiding, he’s come for her to use her as a pawn to get her sister.
But Blackburn isn’t the only threat to her the evil Red Holme who’s shown an unnatural fixation to her.
Throughout her journey Kristina has one young man to offer her protection from Holme, Ralston who happens to be more to her then he lets on.
Colin Cameron is one of the warriors who helps rescue Kristina and best friend to Neacal the man who became Anna’s husband. He feels a connection to Kristina and although she can’t see him she feels drawn to him as well. Blackburn is killed but another villain -Holme-is after Kristina and is out for revenge at Collin Cameron..
Kristina and Collin have some hurdles to get over, she feels not worthy of becoming the wife of a chief and Laird, after all she’s blind and disfigured.
He feels that he can’t go through another rejection and have his heart exposed and vulnerable. It’s amazing how their feelings were the same for each other but they didn’t trust in their love. Vonda Sinclair has done a spectacular job in portraying the feelings and emotions that Kristina is going through as a blind woman. The emotions are palpable, the action well portrayed and believable. If one word could sum up this book it would be PHENOMENAL!
I highly recommend all of Vonda Sinclair’s books, you are in for a treat.
I was gifted a complimentary copy, and this is my unbiased opinion.
