Basso's rousing third McKenna romance features independent-minded Lady Katherine McKenna (sister to Malcolm of No Other Highlander). She agrees to marry Hamish Drummond but changes her mind when she realizes Hamish loves another. Expecting resistance from her father, since the wedding contracts have been signed, Katherine flees the betrothal festivities with a few trusted servants, only to be captured by the rash Aiden MacTavish, who hopes to trade her for his brother Robbie, the McKenna's prisoner. After escaping her captors, Katherine falls ill. When the responsible Laird Lachlan MacTavish discovers his brother first kidnapped and then lost the McKenna's daughter, he resolves to find her and return her to her family. Threats from series villain Archibald Frasier force Lachlan to take Katherine back to the impoverished MacTavish Keep, where affection grows between them, but the specter of those betrothal contracts still looms. Basso keeps the action moving and the attraction building between the compassionate, appealing protagonists, making their journey to the altar both entertaining and satisfying.
