Angus McDougall, aka Angus the Blood, has cultivated a reputation in battle unsurpassed in his clan (and others). He is said to eat the livers of those he kills in battle. Now if you think that sounds like an unlikely hero for a romance novel, you couldn't be more wrong. Angus is a perfect hero for this book.
He has taken the challenge from his Laird, Duncan McDougall - the hero from A Man In A Kilt, to find a bride in 6 months. If he does, he gets Donaleigh, a castle of his own. If he fails, he forfeits his wages for 6 months. Thinking this is no challege at all, he accepts the wager. After all, he has no trouble bedding women. However, after several months have passed and with no luck in sight, he's on his way to his last hope, Beal Castle.
However, before he can reach his destination, through a series of unfortunate (well, maybe not totally unfortunate) events, he finds himself running from a rival clan, handfast to a woman he barely knows, Birdi, and finding more trouble in a few days than he's had in years. Trouble seems to find him and Birdi on their journey.
Birdi is a sweet, innocent young woman who knows nothing of men and love. She was orphaned at a very young age and before her mother's death, she was not taught anything about relationships. She has been alone for a long time except for her friend, Wolf, a loyal companion whose life she saved when he was a pup. She has a special gift of healing that she keeps hidden from all for fear of the Church's wrath.
As we all know, a good romance always ends with the couple winding up together. If you love romance, you know that its not the destination, its the journey. Well, let me tell you, that this is one journey not to miss! It's truly a wonderful book. If you read A Man In A Kilt and loved Duncan and Beth, you can get caught up on their lives here as well! If not, this one is a great book all by itself!
