My rating: 5 of 5 stars
And the amazing series continues with Laird Alexander Macleod. In a desperate attempt to escape the death of his wife, Alexander embarks on a one man journey to nowhere. He ends up in deep trouble when his ship anchored in an English town. Mugged and beaten to near death, his attackers dumbs what they fought was just a body in the doomed woods nearby. It is here where Alexander stumbles into the cottage of Jane. Alone and in hiding, she fears that Alexander will bring death with him. She tries to send him on his way, but with his injuries, Alexander is unable to go far. In good faith he offers Jane his labor in return for a place to heal. But the feelings that is stirred up, Alexander finds himself in an even greater peril. Can he return home and leave this enchanting beauty behind? Or will she be the death of him?
It takes an amazing writer to grab you by page three and just keeps you up until you devoured the last page. Each and every book in this series had that very effect on me, which is why Amy is one of my favorite authors, and this series is on my top list of Historical Romances. As each page unfolds the characters quickly earn their place in your heart. Alexander reminded me so much of his father, and yet he had his mother’s charm to capture a lady’s heart. Jane was the silly noblewoman trying to make it out in the woods all alone, and had me laughing a few times. Amy’s talent to enthrall have once again proven to be very powerful, a great novel with an amazing plot and perfect execution. The only sad part was that it was over far too quickly for me. I can’t wait for her next releases, and just loosing myself in them again. Well done Amy.
