It has been prophesied that four men, raised as brothers, will bring Scotland back to her rightful glory. It is time for the second to take up his sword.
When a Highland warrior fights, he fights for honor. And when Reeve MacAlpin sees a beautiful stranger surrounded by bandits, he does not hesitate to do the honorable thing and dispatch her would-be assailants. But at her first grateful touch, his instinct to keep her safe is surpassed by a longing to keep her close...and to fulfill her every desire.
For as long as Tara can remember, she has lost the people she loves most - a curse that is sure to doom anyone who shows her kindness. She can never love without bringing death - and though her powerful Highlander champion tempts her beyond imagining, she fears that to give herself to him means his downfall. And yet she knows she must tempt Fate...for to resist him would be just as unthinkable.

Tara has been deemed a "death bride." A curse was spoken over her as a child; her first love passed away and her husband died before the marriage was consummated. Tara's father has promised her to another man and she wants nothing to do with marriage. She leaves her father's lands and finds herself surrounded by bandits.
She is saved by Reeve MacAlpin, who can defeat four or five men at a time. She is grateful but she is aware of her curse and keeps her distance from Reeve. She fears if he even touches her, he could die. Reeve likes Tara and convinces her to accompany him to his lands so that she may have a normal life.
He is aware of the curse but unafraid of it. In fact, he cannot believe that Tara has allowed it control of her life. Reeve comes from a family of four brothers and one of them is supposed to be the true king of Scotland. The phrase,"true king" is repeated throughout the novel. The reader does not know who this is; presumably the last book will let the reader in on the secret.
Tara enjoys life with the MacAplins but she finds ways to stave off Reeve's advances. She constantly tells him it is for his own good, and this is her mantra. She is so ensnared by the ranting of an angry woman from years ago that it colors almost all of her decisions. She is stubborn about so many things, especially rejecting Reeve's protective spirit. Whereas "I love you" is what most heroines long to hear from their heroes, Tara never wants Reeve to utter the words. This made little sense to me, if he loved her wouldn't the curse be active whether he said the words or not?
For the most part this is a likable couple, although I cannot count the number of times Reeve uttered the annoying words to his brothers, "I will beat you" and Tara tended to be locked in her fears. By far the best part of this novel is the last third, where many secrets are revealed and Tara finally trusts in Reeve's love.
