Annis is on a quest to save her sister Bliss and the only way she can do it is to break a twenty-year old curse.
Annis does not intend to let anyone frighten her off or stop her from doing what she must to save her sister. Not the suspicious people in the small village where she stops to seek information, not the heavy mist that descends like sentinels on the hills, not the beady, black-eyed ravens that keep watch, and especially not Brogan, the condemned lord, and the only way she can make sure of that is to let him join her on her quest. Though, it is not much of an option since he insists.
Brogan of the Clan MacRae is on a quest to save the determined, willful Annis from herself. She refuses to accept the truth… the curse that had been cast on the three clans twenty odd years ago cannot be broken. He and the other two cursed lords, Odran and Rannick, have tried. If they failed, surely Annis would, and she could possibly be harmed in the process. He had to admit she had caught his interest when he had first met the fiery red-haired beauty, a memorable meeting for sure, since he had been covered in blood and she faints at the sight of blood, which led to her falling into his arms. Be that as it may, he was here to make sure no harm came to her, see her through her futile quest, and return her home. However, there was another reason he had chased after her and when she discovered his secret, they would be no containing her fury.
All does not go as either Annis or Brogan planned and when the witch finally shows herself, it sends the couple on another quest where long-kept lies and secrets abound. Brogan does all he can to keep her safe, and Annis discovers that she is not only fighting to save her sister, but she is also fighting to free Brogan from the curse.
Through it all the couple find something neither were looking for—love.
Author's note: There is a prequel to this trilogy… Highland Intrigue A Prequel. You get to meet most of the characters in the trilogy and see how Brogan and Annis first met and find out what brought them to this point. Also, while Annis and Brogan's love story concludes in this book, there is a story arc/mystery that runs through to book three, Highlander The Cursed Lord.
Wow! Another great book!
This is the second book in the Highlander Intrigue series. The Condemned Highlander
Brogan and Annis much search for the witch in the hills in order to break a curse. Their adventures lead them to unravel a mystery by clues given by the witch. I loved this story as they had help with ravens and protection from the wolves. I’m looking forward to the last book in the series.
Great Second Book in Trilogy
This is the second book in a trilogy. For me it started a little slow compared to the first book but it then pick-up and I could not put it down. Two souls who fall in love and meet the challenges to break the curse. Some secrets revealed but others still pending. Can’t wait for the third and final story, which I know will be just as good as Book One and Two. Highly recommend you read the first book, The Silent Highlander, which was really good too.
