Maldie Kirkcaldy, a dark haired woman with green eyes is on her way to kill her father, who abandoned her mother many years ago. As her mother Margaret lay dying she told her daughter to kill him to avenge her honour. On her way, she meets Murray men, keen to learn what a young woman alone in the woods is up to. They take her home with them, to tend to wounds within the Murray clan after learning she has healing skills. Both Balfour, a tall and dark man, and Nigel, a fair and pale man, both want Maldie. Balfour doesn't see this as fair, as Nigel can easily get a woman, but he finds it hard as he is too dark. He tries to ignore his yearning for her, as she tells him little about who she is and what her plans are, but they embark on an affair, and soon Maldie discovers she loves him. The Murrays are intent on killing Beaton, the man who is also Maldie's father, after he kidnapped their half brother. After a while, Balfour believes he cannot trust Maldie, thinking she may be a Beaton spy, and locks her in her room. Distraught, she plans her escape and hopes to kill Beaton and bring their half brother home to prove her innocence. One of Murray's spies sees Maldie try to kill Beaton but fail and goes back to tell his clan. Balfour now realises she isn't a spy, and goes to save her and his half brother. Beaton is defeated, and Balfour saves Maldie and his half brother. But then, Maldie tells Balfour everything about how her mother told her to kill Beaton for her honour and how she is Beaton's child. She said she lied as she didn't think anyone would believe she isn't really a spy, when they realise her connection to Beaton. In the end, both declare their love and are happy.

Good story, worth reading. 4/5

So I have read a few of the Murray series (none in order as all stand alone books) so thought I should really see how it all began. Well I wasn’t disappointed as this was a great start to the series as a whole. The books I have read are from further down the line so I can see how they have improved a lot from the first (even though I thought it was pretty good anyway).

So you have headstrong Maldie who has sworn a blood oath to her dying mother to avenge her in death for the man she see’s as responsible for how her life turned out. Scorned lover turned very bitter, Maldie’s mother wants nothing more than for her daughter to kill her own father, Beaton of Dubblinn, for all she see’s as his wrong doings. On Maldie’s journey to Dubblinn she comes across a battle taking place. With this she see’s a way to get closer to her goal, the enemy of my enemy is my friend and all. When she steps out in their path and helps a wounded man his brother, laird of Doncoill Sir Balfour Murray, asks her, or rather insists, that she come with them. With one look at Balfour Maldie knows he could be trouble for her, or more precisely her heart. She can feel his lust for her but instead of being unaffected, as she has in the past with others, she feels herself being drawn to him.

Balfour Murray’s youngest brother Eric has been taken hostage by Beaton of Dubblinn and he will do anything to get him back. After going straight into a battle, which is quickly lost, he needs to think of a better plan to get to him back. After Maldie steps out in front of him though his thoughts are fighting to stay on the course set before him. The more he looks the more he wants and right now the only thing he wants is Maldie in his bed.

Although, in the beginning, I thought the characters in this book had great promise, there were too many things about the storyline that I did not like. Primarily, the relationship between Balfour and Maldie, although sweet in some ways, was one of distrust toward one another until pretty much the end of the book.

Toward the end of the book, after all the dust had settled, Balfour, Nigel and Eric (the brothers three), two of whom were in love with Maldie, simply allowed her to leave their home and walk - yes, walk away without any escort, guide or protection to the Kirkaldy Clan. Maldie didn't have anywhere to go and not feeling accepted by Balfour, decided she would search out the Kirkaldy clan - Maldie's mother's family - people she had never met. She didn't have a lot of options, so decided to go there to see if she could find a home with her mother's people.

So, I ask you? What was Nigel thinking when he allowed Maldie, the woman he was supposedly in love with (although he knew he didn't stand a chance with her) leave without at least offering her an escort - even encouraged her to leave. Worse yet, Balfour, who had taken Maldie's virginity and had regularly slept with her and who was also madly in love with her, waited one long month before going after Maldie because he was so torn up over the fact, she had attempted to kill her own cruel, devil, torturing, rapist, father, Beaton. Poor little Balfour and his insecurities. I never could comprehend the ending at all. Of course they finally get together. Ugh! Maldie should have made him crawl.
