Fleeing with only her bow, horse, enormous pet wolf, and the cryptic clues hidden in her mother's medicine journal, healer Meg Boswell gallops north towards freedom, running from the man who falsely accused her mother of witchcraft. Cursed with magical healing abilities, Meg knows that if she's captured, she will die like her mother—atop a blazing witch's pyre.
Winter winds rip across the Highlands, pressing Chief Caden Macbain forward in his desperate plan to save his clan. He's not above using an innocent woman to bargain for peace if it keeps his clan from starving. But Meg isn't who Caden thinks she is, and when she kills a man to save the clan, he must choose between duty and her life. For although he captured her to force a peace, Meg's strength and courage have captured Caden's heart.

This book I couldn't put down. I loved the characters!!!
Enjoyable with a touch of the unexpected
The storyline for me had various intrigues. Character development was a bit limited: almost corny in a sense.
Yet, the setting does not diminish the fact that I found enjoyment in this novel, and I am interested to know the next tale in the series.
I will say- I had some difficulty keeping track of where I was in the setting. Had to re-read a few passages to know where The characters were. But the dynamics and plot are rather stable, as is the romance.
Romance scenes here are...gentler. Not frequent or “hot and heavy”, but there is a tension which makes the romance intriguing. Will recommend for those seeking the fairy tale romance but with less supernatural elements and more economics.
