Rory MacLeod is a bold and powerful Highland Chief with only one allegiance–to his clan. He vows revenge against the rival MacDonald clan, though duty demands a handfast marriage to Isabel MacDonald–a bride he does not want and has no intention of keeping. But Rory couldn’t have anticipated the captivating woman who challenges his steely control, and unleashes the untamed passion simmering beneath his fierce exterior.
Blessed with incomparable beauty, Isabel MacDonald is prepared to use every means possible–including seduction–to uncover her husband’s most guarded secrets. Instead Rory awakens Isabel’s deepest desires and her sweetest fantasies. Now Isabel has found the happiness she’s always dreamed of with the very man she must betray, and discovers that passion can be far more dangerous than revenge.
Rory and Isabella belong to separate clans but they are forced into a temporary union which Rory isnt happy about because he despises the other clan. Because of this Rory is determined to keep his hands to himself and stay clear of Isabella no matter how tempting she is . but as the days go on he finds this extremely hard.
Isabella is out to make her family happy by doing as her uncle has told her. She has to use her body into tempting Rory's secrets . and with any luck these secrets will be his down fall. But things don't go to Isabella's plan because she falls in love with Rory and realises she wants him badly and she finds she likes spending time with his family. She is then stuck with a big decision, who does she betray her family or the man she loves.
I have to say the author does a great job with this book. I think she did well in setting the scene and making you feel apart of it. I felt really sorry for Isabella when she realised what her uncle was really like and that Rory meant much more to her. This book will make you laugh and cry and move you like you would not think possible, I would definitely recommend that you try this book. and I would really love to hear what you thought about it. I really cant wait to try the next book.
RATING OF 4 LIPS.
