William MacGregor will lie, spy, and happily die to protect his clan from their greatest enemy. But when he kidnaps the wrong woman, he triggers the very events he’d been working so hard to prevent. And puts everyone in danger.
Rose Thatcher will do anything to protect her lady and return them both safely to English soil. But the damn Highlander who snatched her off the docks has done nothing but get in her way. She’d love to ditch the bastard, but if they want to save their respective loved ones, they are going to have to stay together.
Somewhere along the grueling journey to Scotland, their constant bickering turns into something more. Something worth fighting for. But how can an English lady’s maid, who longs for the safe, comfortable life she had in London, find love with a Highlander who can’t wait to wipe England’s dust off his feet? If they can’t defeat the enemy they accidentally led home, they might not live long enough to find out.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
While this is the fourth book in this series, it is the first for me. I could tell though that prior characters from the first three books were either discussed here or made appearances. It was not necessary for me to read the prior books as the author did a wonderful job in lightly relaying pertinent facts to me, the reader, so I would not be lost and to understand the story-line.
I loved William. He is a wonderful male protagonist. He followed through with his actions but when he knew he was wrong, he did apologize and he truly felt the ramifications deeply. Rose was a strong lady's maid and the perfect foil for William. Both felt deeply for their individual cause but she was able to also see the "big picture" and adapted easily to the different situations that she found herself in.
This book was also written in a dual POV format. I could easily identify with both characters and relate to their actions.
I recommend this book.
