Publisher’s Summary: Beautiful and fiercely protective of those she loves, Lady Seona Murray captured Keegan MacKay’s attention when she first set foot in Dunnakeil Castle. Though she is a chief’s daughter and forbidden, Keegan has fallen in love with her from afar and burns to possess her. But so does the clan traitor, Haldane, an obsessive outlaw bent on murder and kidnapping.

Sinfully handsome, Keegan MacKay is a fearsome guard as well as the chief’s cousin, but Seona’s father would never consider him a worthy husband for her because he is not a titled laird. Seona has secretly watched the sensual, tawny-haired warrior from across the crowded great hall for months, but when he is tasked with escorting her across Scotland, back to her home, their simmering attraction flames into sizzling passion with just one kiss.

Though she fears she is endangering Keegan’s life, Seona cannot resist his seductive charm or his spellbinding kisses. Keegan sets fire to the memories of her sad past and shows her what it means to truly live. But her father has other plans. He’s arranged for her to marry a wealthy Lowland laird. Is Keegan daring enough to steal her away? Or will the vindictive Haldane snatch her first?

My Thoughts: Ms. Sinclair entranced me with this wonderful series, narrated by Dave Gillies. As I continue the series, it’s like coming home to good friends.

Dave Gillies narration captivates the feeling and emotion the characters are experiencing, particularly with his expertise and skill of internal dialogue. Additionally, it’s remarkable how very feminine the women’s voices are, including their internal dialogue.

Keegan, the hero of this book, is a great friend to Dirk, the new chief of his clan. To be a chief certainly doesn’t keep one safe. But Keegan, a very able and honest man, was there to protect him. His protective streak extended to Dirk’s wife and ultimately to the lovely Lady Seona, Dirk’s wife’s sister. Keegan was a very decisive man and when his mind was fixed, nothing swerved it. Lady Seona held is heart from the first. She had to be his.

Lady Seona, on the other hand, deals with a very heavy-handed father, ready to marry her off to the best titled man and is very logical in his thinking, but quite conniving. In all her innocence, Lady Seona had a very carnal appetite and a curiosity which knew no bounds and a huge attraction to Keegan. This did not help Keegan keep his hands off her. He wanted to do the honorable thing by her. This, my reader, created a very hot, passionate story. (Delicious!)

The scenes were crisp, to the point, propelling the story forward. At one point, I remember stopping and just blinking!! Twists and turns at every front make the adventure most fascinating. What a lovely, delightful listen. I am SO ready for book 4!
