In a breathtaking short novel that’s perfect for readers of Maya Banks and Monica McCarty, Violetta Rand introduces a wild clan of Scottish warriors who fight for honor—and live for passion.
Errol MacRae’s days of gallivanting across the Highlands are nearing an end. His father’s health has taken a turn for the worse, and rumors are swirling that the crown intends to transfer ancient lands into the hands of the MacKenzies, the clan the MacRaes are sworn to defend. Errol expects to lead his men into battle soon. So he isn’t pleased when his father instead sends him to retrieve a beautiful flame-haired lass who has fled into the mountains.
Orphaned as a young girl, Aileana vividly remembers how the MacRaes rescued her and welcomed her into their clan. For ten years, she has served them loyally—until the night she’s nearly despoiled by one of the laird’s captains. Aileana risks her life and her reputation to seek refuge in the snowcapped peaks of the Five Sisters, the one place that has always felt like home. But after the strong-armed, strong-willed Errol tracks her down in a blizzard, she finds herself tempted to risk something even more dangerous: her heart.

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
I found this a compelling read. She did not know where she came from but she found a home with the MacRae clan. Errol MacRae had watch Aileana since she came to the clan but not too closely as he became a man. It took one sentence to get him to take that closer look. The heat between the two was intense. I loved Aileana's honesty and head strong ways. Errol helped her grow through his love. Things get in the way, and Errol is ready to give up on her. His father makes him look at things differently and Errol stands up for his heart's desire. I loved this book and look forward to the rest of the series. I highly recommend this story.

Terrific Highland Romance
I can’t help being trite when I speak the truth so I’ll tell it like it is. This was my first book by Ms. Rand…but it will most definitely not be my last…I enjoyed this first one that much. Ms. Rand wrote plainly so that her vision of early life in Scotland was very clear. I literally felt I was walking in the heroine’s (Aileana’s) footsteps and experiencing her humiliations, joys and dreams. I was proud of her as she “came into her own” out of her fearful, solitary shell and stood up for herself. I felt her joy when the hero (Errol) she had admired from a distance opened his eyes to Aileana’s beauty and kind, sweet nature. I understood firsthand the feuds between the clans and the plight of women and the men at warfare in the Highlands. I recommend Ms. Rand’s storytelling highly. A complimentary copy of this book was given to me by Net Galley for an honest review.
