Davina is one of the Royal Family’s best kept secrets. She has been hidden away in an Abbey for most of her life, forgotten by almost everyone. It is a lonely life but she makes the best of it, reading about what she cannot experience first hand.

Rob is the eldest son of the Laird of Clan MacGregor. He is a trained warrior, a bit hot tempered, but fair and thoughtful. He has been summoned to England to meet the new king.

While on the way to England Rob MacGregor and his party come upon a scene of unimaginable carnage. Someone has attacked an abbey protected by the King’s guards and killed almost everyone. Rob manages to save Davina, a beautiful woman with an important secret. He vows to keep her safe and take her to the Isle of Skye where she will be safe. Someone knows her secret and is determined to kill her.

This is an exciting novel, full of romance, intrigue and suspense. Some of the scenes involving the slaughter of nuns were a bit disturbing, but this was a violent time. Davina is an interesting character, the forgotten Princess Royal. Many factions would love to rule England and have to kill her to get there. The author has created believable characters and has a good grasp of the time period and its customs. The plot is well crafted and very suspenseful. Readers of Historical Romance should not miss this one.
