Her travels lead her straight to the path of danger until a mysterious, brawny man comes out of nowhere and saves her - and the spark between them is immediate. With a target on Jane's back, she knows the only way to stay safe is to go with Diocail. But the real trouble will be guarding her heart from her newly ignited Highland flame....

I still don't know how to say Diocail (but in my head it's Doy-kale and that's not sexy. I'm going to look it up now... Okay, it's pronounced JU kel and I was nowhere close, but it sounds better.)
The story opens with Jane being cast out of the inn she was staying in with her husband in just her shift. Her husband was killed and the innkeeper took all her possessions as payment due, he cast her out when she refused to sleep with him to cancel the debt. She is determined to return to her father's house in England, so she sets out walking, but unbeknownst to her - she is going the wrong way.
Diocail is the new laird of the Gordon clan, he was the nephew of the former laird - a stingy, mean man who was murdered - but his clan is torn, many would be happy to overthrow Diocail and his household is a mess. To escape the strife, he leaves to go with his men to collect the rents. His men have encouraged him to take a wife who can set the household to rights. They figure if the men are feed and keep is in order, Diocail will have an easier time winning over the clan.
These two meet when Diocail save Jane from some ruffians bent on raping her. As grateful as she is, Jane does not want to stay with Diocail - a fact that she repeatedly tells him. When the opportunity arises, Jane makes a run for it - only to be captured and taken to be hung as a spy! When Diocail intervenes to save her (again) the crowd demands that he marry her.
They marry but Jane is still determined to go home to England and plans to have the marriage annulled. Diocail recognizes Jane's worth and will not let her go easily. She is appalled by the state of the keep when she arrives and immediately begins to set things right. Diocail is more convinced than ever that Jane belongs with him. Slowly Jane begins to admit that she is happy with Diocail and just when it seems like these two are headed for a HEA, Ms. Wine throws the reader a curveball.
Not everyone is happy with Jane or with Diocail for that matter. So when Jane disappears, Diocail assumes the worst and refuses to believe that Jane did not leave him. Both Jane and Diocail are stubborn and when they engage in a battle of the wills - I was hard pressed to decide who will be the victor.
This book was well written, flowed nicely, has steamy love scenes, nasty villains, great secondary characters, amusing dialogue and a great ending.
I would highly recommend this book, it is the fourth in the series, but it could easily be read as a stand alone title.
