Book Description

Chosen to help Robert the Bruce in his quest to free Scotland from English rule and claim his crown, the legendary team of warriors known as the Highland Guard battles on.

Embedded deep behind enemy lines, Arthur “Ranger” Campbell is prized for his razor-sharp senses and his ability to blend into the shadows. But when Arthur infiltrates the clan of the chieftain who murdered his father, his heart is locked on revenge. Inside he faces unexpected resistance from the sweetest of obstacles—a honey-haired siren who is his enemy’s daughter.

Intrigued by this ruggedly handsome newcomer to her father’s forces, the vivacious, enchanting Anna MacDougall is a woman whose skill at uncovering deception rivals Arthur’s own. Though yearning for a quiet life with a good man to love, Anna is drawn to this mysterious knight whose eyes devour her but whose words push her away. As danger, treachery, and the threat of looming war draw them closer into each other’s arms, a warrior made of steel must make a choice from the heart: love or revenge.

From the Paperback edition.

    This is Book 3 in the Highland Guards series with Arthur 'Ranger' Campbell and Anna MacDougall.

    Arthur has a unique ability to blend into shadows and has heightened senses, making him aware of dangers others can't see. He's always been regarded as a loner, preferring to keep away from relationships with women, and content with casual flings. One night, he is on his way to try to steal some money from a church for the Bruce's men, when he sees an unknown woman and her protector. Unable to let her be killed, he makes himself known, but in doing so, his own men attack and kill her protector. After she is saved, she wants to know who he is, but Arthur's face is hidden behind his helmet, and he has no intention of revealing himself, despite feeling an attraction to her.

    Moving on one year later, Robert the Bruce gives Arthur the perfect excuse to reclaim his clan's stolen lands and seek revenge on the man responsible for his father's death, John of Lorn, the head of the MacDougall clan. He's eager to do it, since he's been waiting fourteen years for this opportunity. But then, he meets the daughter of MacDougall, Anna, who just happens to be the woman he saved a year ago. Sir Arthur is there with Sir Dugald, his brother, so they can fight for the MacDougalls, but only Arthur knows the truth. John of Lorn is ill, and he asks Anna to spy on Arthur, since he's grown suspicious of him. At first, Arthur is annoyed at Anna's presence; he's finding it hard to keep his distance from the first woman he's ever felt the desire to be closer to. Anna finds herself falling for him, despite his constant rebuffs. There are times she sees him weakening, which gives her hope, but it's not long before he's rude to her again.

    I have read all the books Monica McCarty has written. I am counting down the days till Arrow comes out! I promise you will not be disappointed in reading this or any of her series. Great characters mixed with historical facts and an interesting read in the author notes on her research into the history.

    5.0 out of 5 stars loved reading this 24 Jun. 2014
    By alicia
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Arrived promptly, in good condition, reasonable price. This set of books is a really good read and I would unreservedly recommend the set to anyone who loves history and romance. The authoress has done her research and they all slot together perfectly. You need the entire set to appreciate the work that has gone into these books but they are so good you can't wait to read the next one. Just get them in the right order though so as not to confuse yourself. Absolutely loved reading them and was so sad when I got to the end

    5.0 out of 5 stars another great book from amazing series 4 Sept. 2013

    The book is different and and original and you don't seem to be reading the same story again as you go through series. I loved that Ranger proved he deserves Anna by 'walking through fires of Hell' and the author didn't shy away from describing the physical torture.
