4.5 out of 5 stars

This is the first in the series and I couldn't wait to read the rest. Love to follow the characters through various storylines. The last in the series The Ravishing One has a great twist at the end - wholly unexpected.

I've not always been fond of reading historical fiction about Scotland but I'm glad I did. This is a very good read, nicely paced and with enough twists and turns to keep you interested right up to the end. I've ordered the other's in the series on the back of just reading this one. Hope I'm not disappointed...but somehow I don't think i will be.

During the 1750's, he lingered in a French prison for four years until his father decided to ransom him, but now his younger brother is also captured. Now, several years later, Ashton Merrick remains obsessed with obtaining his brother's freedom, using his ability to successfully gamble to earn the needed money. However, an opportunity to expedite the process appears when his sire demands Ash escort the man's ward Rhiannon Russell to him in exchange for paying for the release of his sibling.
Though he loathes Lord Carr, he agrees to do the man's bidding. When he meets Rhiannon, he finds himself attracted to her beauty and intelligence. He begins to worry that his father plans to make Rhiannon his fourth bride. The first three inexplicably died. As he falls in love with his charge, Ash has a dilemma of freeing his brother at the cost of sacrificing his beloved.
MCCLAIREN'S ISLE: THE PASSIONATE ONE is a superb historical romance that will thrill readers as the complex Ash deals with a losing situation. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action. However, the plot truly centers on the relationship between the enigmatic Ash and the woman who pulls him out of the darkness. Once again, Connie Brockway writes a winner.

Ash, the original tormented hero, is sent by his murdering father to escort his father's ward to Scotland. He doesn't want to becasue he knows he may be delivering the girl's death sentence but if he doesn't his father won't ransom Ash's younger brother who is rotting away in a French prison. Choices, choices! They become even harder when Ash falls in love with the still-waters-run-deep Rhianon. A big, wonderful spooky read. Can't wait for the others!

Everytime I read one of Connie Brockway's books, she transports me to a new world, and this time she took me into a story set in Scotland, one of my favorite places. Talk about romance! This is the first of a trilogy, and I can't wait to read the others. Oh, and the villain is so great, he made me writhe and laugh at the same time.

Wonderful, sexy book with really intense relationships! All the characters are three-d and unique and the story spun out fast and fascinating. I have only one problem--the next book isn't out until January

Convoluted yarn in which unpleasant people are beastly to one another in Scotland for no very convincing reasons.
