This follows the story of James, the most handsome of the MacRae brother’s. Haunted by a murder he unwittingly committed James accepts a task given him by his uncle Fergus (from the previous Highland Lord books). He meets the beautiful Rhiona. James is Rhiona’s perfect man but obstacles stand in their way.
The methods of sorting the obstacles are well thought out and don’t leave that sense of frustration that sometimes occurs when you feel like crying “for goodness sakes just …”. The physical descriptions of the love scenes between Rhiona and James are graphically described but with great sensitivity.
James is every woman’s dream hero with a body to sigh over. Rhiona is a worthy partner, funny and brave, willing to sacrifice much for the happiness of her family. The secondary love tale between Susanna and her cantankerous steward Old Ned is also enjoyable.
