Terin's bully of a husband Goron, the Duncan Laird was dead, leaving her a virgin after four years of marriage. Her dominating mother-in-law, Benedicta was also dead, by her own plans for Terin so it was her time to escape. Benedicta tried to poison her. Terin turned the tables on her and had the poisoned meal delivered to Benedicta instead. Disguising herself as a lad, she strikes out on foot to find her widowed Aunt Davonna. Terin has heard her home on Chattan land is sanctuary taking in widows and orphans. This is when we find Jasper Chattan returning home from book 3, The Highlander's Captive. His sister Kianna, was the too young prospective bride for Rolfe Munro. When forced to find sanctuary during a snow storm, Jasper is drawn to the bedraggled lad he finds at poor excuse for an inn. The lad is hungry, half frozen and being left to fend on the floor of the over crowded inn. This starts the story of two strong individuals determined to find a place and happiness for their futures. Jasper quickly sees through Terin's disguise to see she's a woman escaping from somewhere and he determines to help her escape. He finds himself fascinated with her but uncertain to her motives...is she a spy or just desperate? I loved watching them fall in love.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I enjoyed reading about Jaspers chase and pursuit to get Terin to trust him. Watching them fall in love and get to know each other is the best part. Mary takes her time to build a relationship and that’s what makes her books so good. As a reader I find myself caught up in the courtship, the possibility of something better for a woman in that day and age, and the characters that surround the hero and heroine helping to solidify life we, the reader are observing.
I must say I would have liked hearing about the wedding planning because I am a romantic at heart. Also, the wedding nuptials and Terin’s feelings about walking down the isle knowing that rules had been broken, the priest reaction and what was said when they asked the church to be married. Yes, crazy as it may sound, I want all that. I want a lead up to that not an immediate EXPLANATION of the turn of events right after the high of the climatic situation. Overall though the story had a great ending but I do want to encourage Mary Wine to take her time and write the ending consistent with the story telling. We are mesmerized by the story and then taken right out of that into an explanation of the last events in the story.
The h has had an awful last 4 years, being in an awful marriage and attempted poisoning by her husband's mother. She decides to escape and dresses as a lad to make it to her aunt's home. She luckily runs into the H who realizes she isn't a lad at all. Some funny dialogue during this time with the h not knowing the H is on to her disguise.
Unique story line about the sanctuary the h's aunt has set up. Interesting main and secondary character's too. There is lovemaking, outside of marriage heat level 5 out of 5 and described a few times.
Some suspense and twists that kept the story moving. Someone was sent to spy and I thought for sure the author would take us on the path of a cookie cutter outcome - NOPE! Oh, how I enjoyed the twists in that aspect of the story - Great Job Mary!
No cheating, no cliffhanger, HEA, some romance, steam - bedroom door pretty wide open. The Lord's name is used once in vain. I enjoyed the epilogue a few months in the future. I recommend this author and series. (ljb)
Jasper Chattan was frustrated with the snow and still with his father. Sent on a mission to deliver his young sister to her destiny, he was now returning home with his sister in tow. Fortunately, the man their father had bargained his daughter to was a man of honor. He would not marry one so young. Finding a scrawny lad in the pub, Jasper was the first to realize that this was not a lad and that “he” needed a bit of protection.
Jasper and Terin skirt around her disguise until he makes sure she knows he wasn’t fooled and he wants her as his bride. There are a few issues to resolve before the two can commit, but the biggest is the person who wants Jasper dead and will kill anyone to meet that goal.
