** LIMITED AUTOGRAPHED EDITION **
Aileana Chattan suffers a devastating loss, then discovers she is to wed neighboring chief and baron, James MacIntosh -- a man she despises and whose loyalty deprived her of the father she loved. Despite him and his traitorous clan, Aileana will do her duty, but she doesn't have to like it or him. But when the MacIntosh awakens something inside her so absolute and consuming, she is forced to question everything.
James MacIntosh is a nobleman torn between tradition and progress. He must make a sacrifice if he is to help Scotland move forward as a unified country. Forced to sign a marriage contract years earlier binding Lady Aileana to him, James must find a way to break it, or risk losing all -- including his heart.
From the wild and rugged Highlands near Inverness to the dungeons of Edinburgh Castle, James and Aileana’s preconceptions of honor, duty and love are challenged at every adventurous turn.
Didn’t hold my interest.
I didn’t finish this book because it just didn’t draw me in.
The first several pages started somewhat rough. It felt like the author rushed a bit in introducing the characters without really providing enough key details. After the first chapter or so the book picked up and I REALLY enjoyed the relationships the author created. A few typos but overall a great book!
