I am no stranger to KM's writing and have to say I was craving a good highlander book. All my favorite characters are back in this story about Alex and Maddie's son Jake. He is a chip off the old block trying to live up to his fathers reputation. Him and his twin brother Jamie are headed home when Jake becomes peculiarly aware that he is needed.
Aline is left To die under a bush when Jake spots a bruised ankle. Her story is a sad one but as the two find their way to happiness they realize without the other it would not be possible. My rating is a 3 and 1/2 star rating. I loved seeing all the Grants again especially Alex and I liked that there isn't a lot of angst. While there is violence it is tastefully done and in the end one the villains escapes the Grants so I do believe we have not seen the last of him.
There are several stories you can see that could be its own story in the future. I don't envy the author having to make that call. My only complaint was Aline's effects from being raped for two years. We don't see it, it's just told but there are no lasting effects that support this. I hate angst but she slept with Jake and showed no difficulties. Maddie and Alex, in this book, even open their hearts and home yet another lassie as Alex loves the little lassies. Her story seemed like it could be interesting but that would mean more years added onto Alex and I am not ready to see the great laird up in years. Just saying, he's my favorite of all the Grants. Enjoy!
