Rose Fleming has been presumed dead for the last decade. It required leaving everything—and everyone—she loved behind, including MacAllister Campbell. But faking her death allowed her to stay safe until the threat posed by a mysterious villain had passed. Believing it’s finally safe again, she returns...and runs smack into the only man she ever loved.
But Rose was wrong and the stalker she escaped years ago still has her in his sights.
Ten years ago, Mac mourned the death of the woman he loved. It’s taken years to heal his heart only to discover that not only is Rose still alive, but still in grave danger. Mac can forgive Rose’s deception, but he’d never be able to forgive himself if he didn’t protect her from the evil still stalking her.
The only thing worse than losing her once would be losing her again... and he won’t let that happen.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This is the first book of this series that I have read. By looking at the synopsis of the prior books, I can see that the prior characters are making appearances in this book.
The story of Rose Fleming and MacAllister Campbell's journey to their HEA is one that is full of intrigue, murder and mayhem. The plot was intricately woven with many questions that arose. I was in for a wonderful ride. The highs and lows of the journey were well worth it. I was glued to my e-reader to try and answer some of the questions. Namely who is behind the plot to kidnap Rose!
I was enchanted in the romance between Rose and MacAllister. The back story of these two characters was filled with heart-break and tears. The dual POV format that this book is written in, really brought these two wonderful characters to life. Being in their thoughts, to see their hopes and fears, really humanized them to me.
The author delighted me with just enough detail of information so I could picture the scenes like a movie playing out in front of me. I was almost brought to tears a few times. The characters and plot were well thought out. Also the author did not just end the book when the intrigue was over. No, she brought a few more chapters of these characters to life so I could really get a more complete feel for their HEA.
There were some scenes that may offend some due to the inclusion of a sexual nature BUT they were done in a manner that were not written in much detail, mainly just eluded to.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a wonderfully crafted historical romance that is fully of intrigue.
